We stayed here for 4 nights and were very happy to be accommodated when we arrived at noon but before check in after taking an overnight train from Ljubljana. This is located in an ideal area in Pest, close to the Jewish quarter and about five minutes walking from the Vaci Utca area and the Danube. The room was modern and clean and for the first time in our 3 week trip around Eastern/Central Europe, the king bed was actually one bed and not two twins pushed together. The wifi was temperamental on my iPad and never really worked on my iphone unless I was in the lobby, but seemed to do fine on my husbands Macbook. The one complaint we had was the TV and available channels. There was only ONE English language channel which was a 24 hours British news channel. After a long day of sightseeing and wanting to relax, this was a little annoying but not major if you don’t plan to watch any TV. The breakfast was 8 euros per person and we went twice. There were a decent number of choices but the only eggs were a vat of scrambled and the menu did not change from day to day. It tended to be pretty packed. We had read that cabbies in Budapest often try to rip you off and you should have your hotel call one for you vs. hail one on the street. So we asked the front desk girl to please call us a cab and we paid 2500 HUF to go to Lizst Square where there are many sidewalk café options (and a Hooters we discovered!) The cab turned out to be a Mercedes Benz and the driver quoted us what seemed like a fixed price. After dinner, the restaurant called a cab for us to get back and its was only 800 HUF! Benz or not, this seemed like a bit of a scam. We did resort to using the hotel to arrange transport to the airport as we had a 6:20 am flight. They said it would take 40-45 minutes and that it was a set fare of 5800 HUF. That seemed reasonable for how far the ride would be. Well at 3:30 am, it only takes 20 minutes and we were at the airport well before the ticket agents are even at the counter. Again we did get to ride in another luxury car. For what we paid (65 euro/night) I thought this hotel overall was a very good value and close to many attractions.
