Just returned from 4 nights with my wife at this quite brilliant and stylish boutique hotel. It has somehow managed to retain its aristocratic heritage and yet feel very contemporary. Despite the yellow pastels and uber cool lounges we have rarely if ever felt more at home in a hotel. The attention to detail and the multilingual staff make it a fabulous place to stay and both are exceptional.
First some practicalities. You can reach it easily and cheaply from the airport. Take Bus 200E from outside T2 at Ferenc Liszt airport to Kobanya-Kispest Metro. Jump on line 3 to Kalvin Ter and then a 5 minute walk to the hotel. It is only three stops from Deak Ferenc Ter, Budapest transport hub where all three metro lines converge.The hotel is located in Josefvaros district. It is just off the city centre in a large student district.There are numerous excellent value restaurants and bars nearby and it is only a 10 minute walk from the Danube and the spotlessly clean Nagycsarnok market, a great place for souvenirs and for food on the go. The hotel also overlooks Lorinc Pap Ter, a quaint and quiet little square.The rooms are very spacious, super clean with high celings, they have international TV, and large walk-in rain showers. Breakfast is a selection of yogurts,fruit,breads,delicatessen cheeses and meats and is ample and highf quality.
The free coffee/tea/water and snacks in the lounge until 5pm is a great touch and a lovely place to relax. The staff were superb, ever friendly and helpful. They genuinely seemed to want make our stay a pleasant one. I cannot recommend this hotel too highly. You will not be disappointed.
