Very pleased with my stay here.

The room was comfortable, clean and well equipped with items such as a mini bar, free wi-fi, etc. Spotlessly clean throughout the duration of my 4 day stay. The front desk team were exceptionally welcoming and couldn't do enough for their guests. Some have complained that the rooms are small but they are perfect if all you require is somewhere to rest up for the night.

The hotel is ideally located on the Buda side of the city. Turn left out the hotel door to head up to the Castle. Or turn right out the door to head to the tram stop or walk along the riverside. Be careful of the cycling lane though!

A taxi to the airport cost me 4600HUF which is about £17.00 and was good value. Other than that the excellent public transport will get you everywhere you need to go. Or you can walk as I did.

Very much enjoyed my stay in Budapest and this hotel was perfect for my needs. Would recommend. Please note that breakfast is generally not included as this seemed to be causing some issue with some guests.

Just back this morning from this beautiful city. Very friendly Hotel staff could not do enough, places to visit, eat etc. Room very comfortable and for once the bed was very good size. Free wi fi very good. Very well located for those wanting to be near locations but also quiet as to get sleep. Breakfast very enjoyable.

An excellent location on the Buda side of the city in a very quiet street, only 10 minutes walk over the bridge to the centre. Also v good public transport. If you want to be in the heart of hustle and bustle next to pubs and restaurants then this is not the place for you. Rooms are simple and very clean and staff are very friendly, happy to help any way they can. Would highly recommend the hotel.

We spent two nights here (three rooms, party of 5), and offer these observations: street parking was safe & free, the breakfasts were good, the location is excellent - a short walk to the funicular to the castle district, the hotel is old and fairly basic, but clean and serviceable. The wifi was OK & free. Good value.

Love the hotel, very good service. Arrived late for check in and Lajos, the night manager had been really helpful, supplying us with all the information we need about the hotel and available services. Breakfast was good too with good quality choices of bread, ham, jam, coffee/tea and you can request for your preferences for eggs (scrambled, hard boiled, soft boiled, fried, etc). The hotel is also situated in a good location, very near to both Gellert Hill and castle district (walking distance of 10-15 minutes) where you get to enjoy nice view of Budapest from the top of the hills. Danube river is also a short distance away and you get to enjoy the beautiful nice night view at the Danube. As the hotel is not located on a busy road, you also get to enjoy good night sleep. Overall, a highly recommended hotel.
