I recently stayed here as a friend of mine was supposed to be taking part in the Budapest Marathon and this hotel was ideally situated to be able to make a quick dart to the start in Hero's Square. He had booked very early and had a triple room with an external door to a balcony with a view out over the local park and to be fair his room was very good, en-suite, mini fridge, air-con and small kitchenette sink unit.
I made the decision to join him about a week before travelling and booked a double room.
When we got there I found out my room was in fact a twin, a pain as i like a double bed, but not the end of the world. But the main problem was no air-con, fridge didn't work, en-suite was if anything larger than my friends, very clean and i couldn't fault it at all, but the room was SO hot with no window to the outside for ventilation and only an electrical fan to try and cool you off, I don't do well in the heat and consequently despite the bed being comfortable, didn't sleep well at all and had to have the fan on all night............now this was early - mid October, it would of been stifling in high season.
Last time I was in Budapest I stayed at Le Meridian which was such a different experience and I guess goes to show you get what you pay for.
I would stay here again, but would make sure I had one of the triple rooms with outside door to balcony even if staying alone, it was after all only about £120.00 for 3 nights if booked early enough.
Location wise, great.......a stones throw from the closest Metro line which connected to the central Metro hub within about 7 stops (10 mins), very efficient, clean and safe.
If you are travelling on a budget and want to spend your time out and about exploring and not expecting to be able to use hotel bars, restaurants and general facilities you could do worse, try it.........what do you have to lose.
