Just stayed there 4 nights, June 2012, the hotel is simple & nothing special, but has everything you need to make a great trip to Budapest, all the staff are helpfull & will advise were they can. You can not beat the location 200 yards to the shopping street Vaci utca, not much further to the river front, underground station just around the corner, there is a small super market direct opposite & a larger spar not far away up the road at the rear.
There is no lift so you might request a low level room, we were on the 2nd floor the stairs are a bind but not too much of a problem (even after a night out in the bars) talking bars, there is one attached to the hotel & an Irish bar just at the rear, both are the cheapest drinks we had on our trip (£1.50 pint, £2 large glass of wine)
Back to the hotel, the rooms are clean & tidy & air con easy to use, note no hairdryer or drink facilities but did have a fridge where we kept drinks cool, safe deposit boxes are behind the reception (no charge) & recomended for all your valuables. We asked for extra pillows, no problem which made for a better nights sleep
Would recomend the hotel & defiantly stay there again
