Stayed here with about 12 friends for a 50th birthday break! Great price, great rooms, no breakfast but not the end of the world! Bit of a walk to centre but taxis are cheap enough! Man on reception was helpful and very polite! Beda were comfortable and rooms well equipped.

Location is convenient, close to transport links and a few places to eat and drink although I preferred the other areas of Budapest, they would have undoubtedly been more expensive. The hotel is slightly odd, we found it harder to find as it's on a quieter street but the street is quiet and residential. Hotel stairwell and area smelled very...

The hotel is perfectly located in the city center but on a quiet street. The staff was very helpful and recommended us a good restaurant nearby.The entrance in our room (which was in fact a very big apartment) was from an inside garden which is very cosy.

When you first go in the hotel, it is a little weird because everything looks old but after you enter the hotel door, everything is modern and clean. Nice and friendly staff, willing to help at any time. Good price!

Well for the price there is not too much to complain about. Nice clean rooms in a good area that is reasonably central. There is the usual gripe about insufficient hangers in the wardrobe, no space to put toiletries in the bathroom, but I have experienced these concerns in five star hotels at three times the price. It is a...

Having looked at the website and previous reviews for this hotel, we were expecting a nice spacious room, unfortunately we did not get this. The room and en-suite was quite small and on street level so was quite noisy. The location of the hotel is fine, I would’ve preferred to be slightly closer to the river but restaurants and local...

It is a midrange hotel was an acceptable standard and clean rooms. The service is good and friendly. The breakfast is sober but good. Not a recommenable hotel for people with disabilities. The noice levels from street traffic are not as disturbing as one might think.
