I stay in Budapest a lot, so I've tried out a lot of the hotels, but for me this little gem a clear winner for style, value and service. The room was really clean, and newly refurbished, with everything I needed: powerful hairdryer in the bathroom; good value, well stocked minibar (not a rip off like most hotels); comfy beds; powerful shower and the best thing, a great big plazma TV with a USB port that I could play my Ipod through. In terms of decor, it's all really tasteful and modern, with great underlighting and the most fabulous view of river and parliament.
The service was top notch, they took my bags to my room, the reception staff spoke great English and couldn't do enough to help. They even had electric plug adaptors for my english hair straighteners! Breakfast was a buffet, with eggs and bacon cooked to order. The bacon really sold this place to me, you'd think being Hungarian they might not get what makes good bacon, but this stuff was seriously tasty.
Then just generally, this place is also well located. The palace is 5 mins walk away and the main shoping street (oxford st equivalent) is a 15 min walk.
All in all, it just looks nice, it's in a great location, the staff are great, the food is good, it's clean and I can listen to my ipod in my room, and it's good value. Nothing not to like.
