I stayed here for 4 nights in July on a last minute break. I booked through BA and got flights and accommodation for £350 inc breakfast.
Despite the fact that I arrived at 1am, the woman on reception was very helpful and bubbly, as were all the staff throughout my stay. They were always eagre to help, greeted you with a smile :)
As for the hotel itself, the location is fantastic. It's a 2min walk to the nearest metro, which is on the line you need to get to Budapest from the airport. Despite being in the centre of town it's very quiet at night, even with the windows open. It's not a luxury hotel, but the beds were comfy, the showers were hot and powerful, the rooms got cleaned every day and the aircon worked (a must for Budapest in July!)
The only slight downside was the breakfast. You get the usual bread, cereal, cheese, ham and can ask for eggs if you want, but I was craving proper fruit juice rather than flourescent squash by the end of the week. However, this being the only downside, I would definitely return here again.
