This hotel is very well located on the Pest side of the River Danube. We stayed for 4 nights and breakfast was included in the modest price we payed per night.
Talking of breakfast, it offered a good selection of cereals, fruit, bread/rolls, jams, yoghurts, scrambled/hard bolied eggs, streaky bacon... Indeed, something for all tastes.
The room, though not overly large, also met our needs. The decor was clean; though the carpet was stained. We had a double bed , LCD TV, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside tables. mini bar. Again, perfectly adequate for our needs. The en suite "bathroom" had a splendid shower, basin, hair dryer, toiletries...
Its location in Nagy Ignac Street is less than 10 mins walk from Margaret Bridge and therefore a visit to Margaret Island. It is also a few mins walk in the opposite direction to the Parliament Building and that area of the city.
Quite a few cafes and restaurants are to be found within a 10 min walking distance. I recommend Okay Italia and Firkasr (both premises reviewed separately). Slighlty further afield, but still within walking distance, is the La Pampa Restaurant (again reviewed separately).
The staff were very helpful and spoke English which made life a lot easier, especially as my Hungarian is non existent!
All in all, the Marmara Hotel offers very good value for money in a good location on the Pest side of Budapest.
