I'll start with the negatives:
Bad (run down and very shabby) location requiring tram and metro travel to the city (although this is quite cheap and quick).
Very noisy rooms facing this very busy, wide ring-road. (i.e open your window and all you hear is trams and cars thundering by; trams till late, cars 24/7.
Watch out for bicycles as you exit the hotel.. They do not warn you they are coming and I was nearly run down, I did inform the reception staff that there should be some kind of warning sign.
Breakfast staff work hard but do not always cope well when the breakfast room is busy and one has to constantly ask for tea, coffee, cutlery etc.
Terrace could be better - more lighting is needed and access should be assured during breakfast (one morning when it was very hot and we wanted to breakfast outside, the doors were locked! Why?)
Now the positives:
The hotel is very clean, modern and nicely decorated.
Rooms are of a good standard.
The breakfast selection was excellent and varied
The staff are very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
Very good value for money.
I am sorry to write negative comments as the staff tried very hard to ensure we had a good stay and the negatives are generally out of their hands. I would like to think that Achat HQ in Germany might read these comments and consider opening a hotel in the city centre.
As for potential guests; as long as you are not a very light sleeper and don't mind travelling on the metro each time, then I would definitely recommend this hotel. We had a fantastic time in Budapest nevertheless.
