“Good stay, needs some improvement”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Stayed here for 5 nights, room was a bit on the smallish side but we managed. Good location, restaurants n shopping closeby, easy walking distance to sights.

Bathroom had chipped tiles, bedsheets were changed after 3 days, not sure if that is the usual case, we got asked to either prepay our stay (which was not a condition when we booked the room) or leave our passports with the front desk which wasn't gonna happen so we prepaid. Breakfast needs to be worked on, huge fly on bread turned me off completely from eating anything there, stuck to fruit.

Restos in the area are super expensive and average quality so try n head to Raday Utca (sadly we went there our last night there) or the various side streets off the main shopping belt.

Very good hotel.

The only clear improvement area is the breakfast that could have been a bit
better. Especially coffee and juices served as a part of breakfast were not a
proper quality.

Hotel is located on one of the main tourist streets in Budapest. The rooms are large, clean and well decorated. The hotel has free wi fi which was useful. The breakfast was OK but items that ware supposed to be hot were cold as the warmer was not working properly. Good priced hotel.

A small but very chic boutique hotel on the south end of the touristy Vaci utca. Very new & contemporary décor with the latest facilities in the bathroom – although no bath, only a large and very acceptable shower. Neat rooms come complete with air con., satellite TV, with a small number of English language channels, and minibar, but no tea & coffee making facilities.

However the modernity does not extent to the breakfast room which has wood panelled walls and squeaky floorboards.

Overall, a modern, quiet and tasteful hotel in a good position. We got a very good deal for four nights, mid-week in the early season – but the published tariffs in the hotel suggest it may get expensive later on. However, if I could get a similar deal, I would gladly go back again.

Just back from Budapest after a 3 night city break staying at the cosmo hotel, got a bus from the airport to the tube then a tube to the main city. ( BE WARNED THERE IS A VACI UT AND A VATCI UTCA DONT DO WHAT WE DONE AND SPEND AN HOUR WALKING UP THE WRONG ROAD BEFORE BEING TOLD IT WAS THE WRONG PLACE).Having eventually arrived at hotel it was brilliantly situated just off a main pedestrianised shopping area. The hotel rooms are small but big enough for 2 people, very well decorated and clean. safe is in wardrobe and is free to use also air con is free which is nice as we have stayed in hotels where we have paid extra for it. staff friendly enough. breakfast pretty poor really. starts at 7 finishes at 10.00 but if you get there after nine no rolls left no boiled eggs and lucky to get a seat.was going to try the cooked breakfast but decided it looked disgusting so gave it a miss. must say overall a good little hotel and well worth the money, if you want to eat in there restaurant you will get 10% discount as you are staying there. Budapest is a beautiful city majority of people very friendly and most of them speak good english. pest is probably the better side of the two where as Buda does have the castle the hospital underground and the chapel in the rock which you must visit. we took a 1 hour cruise up the Danube around the beautiful margaret island and back again well worth the money about 400 forant each just over a pound. loads and loads of shops on pest side if you like shopping, huge west end shopping centre. All in all a great holiday weather was nice to and would recommend the city to any one thinking of going.dont hesitate to email me if you have any questions about the city or hotel or the transport i will only be to pleased to help.

The Hotel is very central, 2 minutes walking from the Great Market Hall and very close to the main attractions in the city centre. We neither buy the 24 h public transport ticket as everything was at a reasonable walking distance and we only moved on foot.
The hotel is ok and the value for money was very good as we paid around 50 Euros per night for a double room. But definitey far from the idea I have of a 4 star hotel!
The service was average and the cleanliness was ok when we arrived but then, on the following days, I guess they just passed quickly a cloth on the sink and the toilet everyday and reorder the bed and they always left the window opened as a bad smell was coming out from the pipes. Apart from the restaurant (open for tourists all day long with a separated entrance from the one of the hotel) for the breakfast, which was good and open buffet, there was no gym, no spa, the interiors were just plain white white walls and no special furniture anywhere. No common or lounge area. The trolley with the sheets and the towel was left all the time in the landing and not in a specific, dedicated room... And my room (103 at the first floor) was linked to the beside room by a common door from which I could listen my neighbours snoring...

If you forget that it is a 4 stars, it is a good base to visit the city (trying to use the "sandwich technique";-))

Room Tip: ask them if your room has a door in common with the other room.

The hotel is located in one of the main streets of budapest, staff was kind and helpful (they allowed to check us in 5 hours earlier than the scheduled time) and our room was big and clean

Breakfast was served in the bar of the hotel, and it was also possible to order room service for dinner at the same bar-restaurant.
