Pleasant and helpful staff, they are good at english.
A little ungenerous breakfast (but it was part of itself in the price). Good location of the hotel!

There are hair dryer, bath & air condition!
A plus is that there is a supermarket close by!

Just returned from 4 nights in Budapest. Contrary to some of the reviews below, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Our room was one of the larger rooms on the 4th floor, facing into the courtyard, and we certainly didn't hear any noise from the street. The air con was also very efficient (thankfully as it was 30+ outside), breakfast was good and location ideal, 2 minutes to the main transport hub. Would definitely stay again.

myself and my partner stayed here for 4 nights in December during the Christmas markets. It is not on a very swanky street but it has a lot of character. Plus the best bar in Budapest is directly across the street, which was a nice surprise.

The room we were in was on the top floor so lost a little space to the balcony, but the room itself was lovely. The bed was comfy and the bathroom modern.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone that who wants to walk to walk the city.

I spent 3 nights in this hotel. The staff was extremely unfriendly and not helpful in the least. Our room faced a busy street and noisy at all hours of the night. Our room reminded me of a college dormitory room with cheap furniture and not a good location for site seeing. How this hotel ever got a 4 star rating, I will never know but I would never stay here again. I would personally rate them a 1 or 2 star hotel.

Ask for a room not over the street when checking in, can be noisy. Staff all friendly and helpful. Great location for getting everywhere near all main transportation. Breakfast plenty of choice to suit all,

Excellent location for city visits. However, there is much room for improvement.
Rooms are very small and mine was in need of repairs and a thorough cleaning of the carpet.
Reception is understaffed, bordering on the chaotic.
Breakfast has good bread but coffee is terrible and there is no fresh juice.
