Booked this hotel on Booking.com It came under recommended, and it appeared cheap. We stayed from Sunday to Thursday. After booking the hotel emailed offering to arrange an airport transfer for an additional fee. We also did this, it was worth the money. We arrived into a unassuming street, pressed a buzzer in an unassuming door and was let in.... More

Despite booking an airport transfer with the hotel, and my girlfriend emailing to say we would be arriving between after 12, when we arrived at half 12 or so, we rang the bell, hammered on the door and yelled for 20 mins to no avail. Thankfully, a kind British woman heard our racket and got reception to open the door,... More

Complimentary tea and coffee with friendly and helpful hotel staff. Great to walk into a small but clean and modern -- and well air-conditioned apartment after walking around hot Budapest... More

The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms were clean but smallish. The location was great. There is a catholic college a block or so away that has several trendy places to sit outside and eat or drink coffee. You can walk to the river in about 15 minutes. We walked to Castle Hill in about 40 minutes. The... More

The location was far off from the main attraction area but, it's walkable and if you know how to take public transportation shouldn't be a big problem. The wall of the room was very thin so we heard all kinds of noise from next room... Room was clean breakfast buffet was simple but, enough for light meal. I'll recommend this... More

On arrival the staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was on the same floor as the reception and looked out onto the road. Some of the rooms on the other side of the hotel looked over the central courtyard. The hotel itself was large, on numerous floors and some rooms had cooking facilities. Our room was a double...

We stayed here for 3 nights and as expected with the price which we paid it was value for money a good bed, bath and ac. If possible avoid the breakfast as it's very average we didn't enjoy as we were vegetarian it was all frozen food. Its near tram and metro so travelling within the city is easy. Do... More
