I just got back from a long weekend in Budapest. I went with a friend and we stayed here because the price was great, and the spa looked gorgeous. We got a superior double room for a great price. The room was very big, very clean. Had a large shower but no bath. A few complimentary toiletries and a kettle with 3 in 1 coffee/milk/sugar sachets (not the best I've seen, no tea bags, but considering it's not self catering I didn't expect there to be any coffee facilities in the room. Also a reasonable mini bar, drinks only).
The breakfast buffet was the usual mix of chocolate donuts, tinned fruit, salad, bacon and eggs and of course a few random things like onion rings and mini hash browns. Great selection of different breads, good quality orange juice and lovely coffee.
The staff were wonderful. Whether it was helping with more towels, fixing things immediately when the fuse blew, directing us to hip local bars and restaraunts and generally being very polite and attentive at any encounters. I always value this more than the average person might due to my age and appearance (young and heavily pierced and tattooed!).
The location was excellent, near to a huge number of monuments and metro stations and a beautiful building in itself. We did not use the spa in the end even though it was one of the main incentives for picking this hotel. Once you've been out sightseeing till 6pm you do not really want to pay for a whole days entry for just another hour or 2 use of the spa (its shuts at 8pm). The treatments are a bit vague and someone has to come independent of the hotel to perform these various massages which are quite expensive. The spa itself 2,900HUF for the whole day which is very cheap if depending on how much you use it that day.
Would love to come back here again if I didn't try to avoid visiting the same places more than once! Lovely hotel and amenities. A great base for a long weekend in Budapest.
