We stayed at this Hotel from the 6-9 September. Room was good, no tea/coffee facilities available, no iron or ironing board, hairdryer available, but shower facilities were poor, only a bracket on the wall that would take the shower head and did not spray on yourself only into the shower curtain. There was no information in the room as to how to travel around the City, apparently there were too many languages to cater for, we believe they only had to cater for German, Engligh and Hungarian. On the internet information before we travelled it stated you were only five minutes away from the City which was why we chose this Hotel, unfortunately not from the Tourist Centre of the City Centre but to reaching the outer boundary of the City. To walk from the Hotel to the Central Market Hall which we believe was the City Centre took 30 minutes. From the Buda side there is a road tunnel with a stone monument which is the acutal centre point from which all measurement is taken as to accessing Budapest. We had a meal on the first night, which took nearly an hour to serve, unfortunately the potatoes were cold and Paul's veal shnitzel was overcooked. We obviously did not return to the Restaurant for the next two nights. We are not aware of health and safety rules in Budapest but there were not instructions on the rear of our hotel room door as to which way to exit if a fire occurred. Also there was no advice as to how to travel around the City, ie which was the nearest tram to take from the Hotel, how do we pay for travel, we went armed with a local map from the Hotel and found our own way around which meant plenty of wallking. We agree with another review that the toaster needs servicing, the squeal was still in existence. Breakfast was perfect with the usual continental cuisine. WiFi was freely available but I agree that it was not efficient, very slow. There were also too many homeless people around the area of the Hotel, begging from tourists, even whilst seated having a meal at a Restaurant. Eva, Receptionist, was very helpful, also the son of the Hotel Director, they both spoke excellent English, we pointed out our problems to Eva upon our departure and she apologised profusely. We would not wish to stay at this Hotel again due to the lack of tourist information, we appreciate the exercise to find our way about, but they did not have leaflets available in the room or reception area and shower facilities were abysmil as were there main meals, a very limited menu.
