This hotel has quite mixed reviews and so was a little bit unsure if it would be any good or not. The location is excellent, it is just outside all the busy areas of the city. The road it's on is quiet. It's only a few minutes walk away from the Houses of Parliament and about 20 from the Vaci Utca area.
The hotel was nicely decorated. The room we had could have done with a lick of paint as there were a few marks on the walls. I would recommend taking tea bags or coffee etc to drink in the room. We had a kettle and mugs but only had weird flavoured tea bags provided.We had air conditioning in the room which was needed as it was quite warm when we went. The toiletries provided were really nice and it was good to see that you were given a proper hairdryer.
The breakfast was mainly continental, not quite sure what people had to complain about as there were cereals, breads, fruits, some cooked items, croissants and various jams/ spreads, cheeses and cold meats. They also had yoghurts and a toaster, a bit of everything.
I would say that this hotel is on the lower side of four star but still good value for money.
The staff we encountered all spoke good English and were very helpful. A nice touch when we arrive was that we were handed a pack of leaflets for things to do. As a result of this we ended up booking tickets for the open top hop on hop off Giraffe bus guide. This was £15 each for two days and included a boat ride along the Danube - excellent value for money.
All in all was a very pleasant trip and preferred here to Prague.
