This was an unusal experince, that you should not hope a comfartable hotel, like amazing baths etc. It is clean, unusal and warm. When i was there, it was snowing, but room's air conditioner was so good. Public transport was not far, approximately 500m, that you can easily walk. Its scenery was so good. You can try!

Room was very poor we had a deluxe room that was anything but dulux. Curtains where hanging down bed was tiny and it stank of damp. We did not receive a buffet breakfast and had to order from a selection of eggs boild scrambled or omelette. It's a long way out so only stay here if you like walking miles... More

Great, spacious rooms (for a boat hotel), very clean, excellent breakfast, polite staff! Pretty far from main city attractions and a supermarket. It could be romantic for couples traveling on a budget.

Stayed here for a long weekend in Feb, a bit dated and basic but we knew that on booking and it never claimed to be anything else. Friendly staff and a real novelty to look out of the room window across the misty river. Great restaurant on board also. Definitely worth a visit.

Needless to say, the price. As... More

This place has a very good location as well, close to the restaurant and night clubs. We had a delicious breakfast in the morning with lots of Hungarian specialities. I... More

We have just got back from here after a 4 night stay, at first thought it was a bit out of the way, but the views of an evening sitting on the deck having a meal and the peacefulness make up for this. Rooms clean and perfectly adequate for sleeping and showering in! We had aircon of some sort which... More
