Enjoyed our short 3 night trip to Budapest. Hotel is in a great position on the banks of the Danube with views across to Pest and the Parliament building which looks stunning at night. The rooms were good, all having a view and we were lucky enough to get a top floor room with a balcony which was much appreciated. The hotel served a varied continental breakfast but also offered eggs and bacon cooked to order which was a bonus, the coffee machine in the breakfast room was really good too. Unfortunately due to Covid the afternoon tea is not currently available. We asked the hotel to order our airport transfer and the taxi was waiting for us promptly and at a reasonable cost. The staff were friendly and helpful, I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for a trip to Budapest.
Amazing view from our hotel room. Floor to ceiling window overlooking the Danube with the glowing Parliament on the side. Every evening we would unwind from the day sitting in our two chairs by the window. It was marvelous! Great service, we booked through Booking and they helped us arrange a taxi from the airport. 8 min. walk to Fisherman's Bastion and Buda Castle!
This hotel offers a shuttle service from airport to the hotel. Unfortunately they do not answering Emails at all. So, there has been no taxi available on the airport for me and I had to arrange it myself. If you know that the pandemic has reduced the number of taxis in Budapest by almost 50% you know that this can be a hazzle. Right after my departure I realized that I left my mobile charger in the room and I wrote an email already on the way to the airport. Again, NO answer from the hotel! I was calling today and they pretend not having received anything, and, of course, my cable has not been "found". Ridiculous service level! That is the price when you have part time employees without any committment to the company.
A really nice small boutique hotel with stunning views over the Danube!! It is sparkling clean everywhere, the rooms are of a really good size all modern and the beds are super comfy. It feels great to come back after a long day of touring and spend time relaxing! The reception staff are very helpful and attentive! Would not hesitate to come back !!
We have stayed here for 5 nights. We had a corner room on the 8th floor - the views were incredible and were well worth paying for - at night when the Danube is still the parliament building is mirror imaged onto the river, it's stunning. The location of the hotel is on the red bus route - we struggled to find the stop, it is stop 17 and is in the middle between the road and the tram. The chain bridge is close by which would make it easy to get to Pest but it is closed at the moment. We walked from the hotel to Margaret Island and to the parliament building, which was just about enough distance. We also walked from the hotel to Gellert, we wanted to go in the baths in Gellert hotel but ran out of time - try and plan it into your trip. We climber the Citadel and toured the church in the rock which is below the citadel. The rooms are very comfortable and practically sound proof. There is a busy road and the trams outside, we couldn't hear them. There is aircon in the room and there is some great mood lighting. The beds are very comfy. Breakfast was substantial, catering for everyone's tastes with eggs and bacon cooked to order. I don't think the sauna is open at the moment due to covid. There is a bar but it is only manned by reception so its not really a social bar. My only real negative is that they only give you one little pot of milk per person per day and very few sugar and coffee. If, like me you drink a lot of hot drinks, especially on a cold day, I would recommend you bring your own or buy some locally. We did ask and got more milk and sugar but it was a pain having to go down and ask for it. We booked out airport transfer through the hotel, it is probably cheaper using the tram but it is definitely more convenient doing it door to door - it cost 30 euro each way. Top tip - they have a fixed conversion rate for Euros so double check before paying in euro - the HUF worked out better. I would come to this hotel again, even with all the other choices of hotel, staff are helpful and friendly. There are a fair few restaurants nearby which are fab, but after so much walking every day - who needs nightlife !!!!…
