“I would stay there again”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

The place was easy to find and the location was great. 5-10 minute walk from city centre and two blocks from subway.
Lots of restaurants to choose from around there and a nice bar in the corner of the same street. Highly recommended.

It was not easy to find the hotel, as it is actually a part of a bigger building. This, however, was the only problem I had.

Although it is quite a small place and probably a 'no frills' type, the rooms are on the spacious side. They are clean and have all the necessities; definitely everything they advertised in their room description was there. I was even given a complimentary bottle of white Hungarian wine - a nice touch one would only expect from a place that would cost you a fortune. The WiFi was also free, and it was quite fast.

All the receptionists - and I met four during my stay - were very nice and helpful. They made me feel really welcome - I mean, genuinely welcome, as if my stay there was a pleasure for them. They gave me advice about where to go, how to get to places, what to see and so on.

Free tea /coffee / biscuits were available from a small table in the reception, and the breakfast is arranged to have at two nearby cafeterias.

The place is centrally situated and has good transport connections. Even though my room overlooked the street, there was very little noise from the outside, so I had a good night's sleep. Overall, it is a nice and friendly place to stay. I later learnt that they are a new business, and I wish them success.

The members of staff were friendly, welcoming and always available and very helpful. The location is perfect. Both room conditions (cleanliness, equipment, comfort, etc.) and the services I received equal a good quality hotel room. The place, then, has got its charm precisely because it doesn't look like a conventional hotel and therefore allows you to get the flavour of how it may look like living in a typical Budapest's 20th century building. Excellent service for the breakfast as well (in the two cafes available) and amazingly kind and welcoming staff there too. The only advice I would give to the management: please make the hotel a bit more visible: I struggled a bit to find it.
Overall, and especially thanks to the staff, this is an excellent place to stay when in Budapest. My score, therefore, is 10/10, and I would definitely recommend it to friends.

My wife and I recently stayed here and while it was not easy to find we were surprised by the friendly staff, great location, the cleanliness and to top it off a complimentary bottle of wine. We could not believe we got all of this for an amazing price. If we return to Budapest we would certainly return to this lovely hotel and have no hesitation in recommending it to everyone..
