After a lot of research we chose to stay here while in Budapest for New Years and we were not disappointed! After finally negotiating the Hungarian Public Transport system we found this hidden gem. Away from the busy tourist traps and situated barely 5-10 minutes’ walk from St Stephen’s Basilica and 15 from the Chain Bridge (dependent on how fast you walked), you couldn’t feel better located.
Right from the beginning the staff were very friendly and helpful, taking us to our room and showing us the facilities rather than giving us basic directions and sending us on our way. From 4.30pm complimentary mulled wine was on offer near the lift, which was perfect to thaw out! The staff recommended a number of fantastic restaurants to eat and made arrangements for us to get to the airport on New Year’s morning. We were going to use public transport but after the staff mentioned it was going to be very busy, we decided to take their advice. Lucky we did as it saved so much time and hassle and worked out only a little more expensive than the trains.
The breakfast was perfect, offering the right amount of quality Continental and cooked breakfast options so not to have too much waste, sparkling wine was also on offer which was a nice touch. The staff were very attentive and would arrange for anything if you wanted something that was not laid out on the counters, from a smoothie to a freshly cooked omelette.
The room was lovely and clean with plenty of space and lounge about in after a day wandering the city. We received our request of a top floor room which had a great view of the roof tops, it just added something extra to the room. It was a nice touch to provide a ‘quote for the day’ by the domestic worker after the rooms had been cleaned.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay at this hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again if we return to Budapest.
