I fully agree with all the positive comments about the staff, the rooms and the fabulous spa! What a delightful way to relax after a day of walk and visits.
We liked the location very much as we could get to the city center within 10 to 15 minutes either by train, by bus or by tram. The stations are a few minutes' walk from the hotel and it was nice to be in a quieter area after a day spent in crowded touristic places.
I would advise future visitors to buy a transport pass at the train station. We bought it for 4 persons for 4 days and it appeared that the cost was less than 3 Euros per person per day for ALL types of transportation so we could 'hop on and off' whenever and wherever we liked! Don't buy the Budapest Pass, it is expensive and the museums discounts are not worth the price you pay for the pass which costs about 30 Euros.
The hotel breakfast is excellent, you can have a full meal. Only the quality of the bread rolls and fruit juices could be improved. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant once, not bad but rather expensive with small portions. But before leaving for a late flight we had a HUGE club sandwich with delicious chips at the River Bar of the hotel for 7 euros!
The hotel is located in a residential area with lovely old buildings and the Vasarely museum. In addition we found there 2 fabulous restaurants a few minutes' walk from the hotel! Lovely Hungarian dishes, delicious Hungarian wines, helpful staff and music at reasonable prices accordingly to the quality.
So a lovely stay in Budapest! But... it would have been even nicer if Hungarians were more friendly, smiling is not their 'cup of tea'... They seem not to have overcome yet the heavy atmosphere of the past political regime... Go to the fabulous Gellert hotel baths and you will experience the sovietic influence!!! Terrible for such an extraordinary place!
But you can feel the country is changing thanks to the EU, the city is in full transformation and young people are much more open than their parents or grandparents.
One last thing, speaking English is absolutely necessary as the language is impossible to understand and the only translations are in English! But it was not a problem for us! LOL! Only a few words of French in the shops!
To conclude, a lovely experience altogether!

We stayed in the hotel when it was still known as Ramada Plaza Hotel in August 2012. It has since changed its name. Nevertheless, this review is done based on the location and physical aspects of the hotel’s layout and rooms. It does not comment on the level of service and staffs as it would have been inaccurate as a result of its recent changes, one way or the other.

The hotel is located in what looks like a residential neighborhood; being surrounded by several places of worship and apartment blocks. Though it claims to be fronting the Danube, the view is a far cry of anything worthy of mentioning. If you are expecting to be able to walk around visiting places, then you will be utterly disappointed. There is however a train station nearby (though, we did not use); but that would mean spending additional costs for train fare.

During our stay, we were given rooms at the highest level of the hotel. The size of the rooms was small and the designs were dated. In addition, being on the top floor, the ceiling of the room had a sloped as if you are staying in the attic of a house. The air-conditioning was bad and not functioning properly. It was stuffy and hot. With temperature of 34C outside, it was unbearable.

If you have a car or planning to rent a car during your stay in Budapest, then perhaps, the location of the hotel is not too bad; being in a residential neighborhood means less noise and traffic. However, if you are a tourist wanting the simplicity of walking around visiting places, then the location of this hotel would not suit your needs.

We stayed 26-28 Oct 2012. The room very pleasurable and the breakfasts were always excellent. The Front Desk and Lobby staff were personable and professional; especially noteworthy were Milan (driver/porter), and Borbala, Eva, and Istvan (Front Desk staff). Thank You for a most enjoyable and memorable experience.

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour and we extended our stay be one night. The hotel is beautiful, updated, clean and classy. The rooms are well appointed and sufficiently large, The bathroom is also sufficient and larger than most European hotels. The amenities included free use of the spa. There were three pools of varying temperatures from cool to hot and a jacuzzi. The spa was immaculate and covered a large portion of the bottom floor. It was a special bonus after a long day of walking. The breakfast was included with our room and was excellent. The staff was accommodating and helpful. The hotel is on the Danube and we had a room with the river view. The hotel is also close to the transit system and an easy trip into the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Danube.

Stayed 4 nights end Oct and had a superb time. My wife & I were extremely pleased with the hotel and staff. Room and bed were 1st class and the spa is excellent. Food in hotel was good. Minor drawback is location but there are tram & train stops over the road & the transport network is easy to navigate. You can be in town in 15 mins.

From airport taxi is £20 & takes about 25 mins. You can get there on public transport in an hour for £3. If you are going public transport buy 3 tickets from newsagent in arrivals. Outside get on 200E bus DONT FORGET to validate your ticket by stamping it when you get on. The bus will drop you off at Kobanya Kispest Metro Line 3. VALIDATE ticket & ride Metro to Arpad Hid. Exit thro one that says Tram 1/1A. Two stops & you are there.

The local square through the underpass has a couple of restaurants & a great little local with friendly owner & even friendlier prices!

The city its self has enough to keep you busy for a week easy. Food & drinks are not expensive. The National Museum is the best I have ever seen & the Roman ruins are incredible. We went to the opera whilst in town & were blown away by the Opera House. Budapest really surprised us & we will definitely be going back. Would highly recommend The Aquincum & will stay there next time.

Room Tip: Executive room was great.
