I liked the hotel overall, it was a nice and comfy hotel and the breakfast included was splendid. The whole hotel was elegant but better wi-fi system and thicker pillows would have been appreciated. It would be good as well if the wi-fi on our smartphones would have worked even when we were down on floor -1 and in the... More

The best thing about the hotel is it's location - right next to St Istvan Basilica. The rooms are pretty good though basic. The bathroom is quite big and fancy. The air conditioning was not really up to the mark, luckily it was quite a cool night but could be a problem on warmer nights. The breakfast was very disappointing.... More

Room was basic but comfortable for what we paid,... More

Location location...the only positive factor to choose this hotel. Air conditioning could take over 1 hour to cool the room. Its a worn down, used-to-be place which has only 1 positive aspect to its benefit. Of my many trips, this hotel could be the one with the worse breakfast ever. I have had some stale croissants in my life which... More

The location of this hotel is one of the best that you can find in Budapest. It is within walking distance of several attractions and only a couple of blocks away of all means of transportation (very important for us since I was traveling with my 80-year-old mother!). The staff was very kind and helpful and the rooms were simple... More

The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Good breakfast. Personnel were nice and helpful. The location was outstanding, few steps from the St. Stephen Basilica. Definitely recommend it and would return if I were in Budapest again. .

Average hotel in every way, except the location. The location is great but the rest of the amenities is not that great: wifi connection very weak (forget about Netflix or youtube), mattress very thin, AC non-functionning (for unknown reasons). I am sure you can find better deal in Budapest

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
