My wife and I spent 2 nights in Budapest during the recent high temperatures (36 degrees +) and this hotel was perfect. With so much to do in Budapest - and sights and cafe's etc. on the doorstep - we wanted a clean, well services hotel with a nice bedrooma nd good breakfast. The K+K Hotel opera achieved all of this.
The breakfast was great - fresh and varied - and ran until 11am which was good for us! The location is excellent being behind the main upmarket shopping street and 1 minute from the Opera House (out of reception, look to your left and there it is).
The hotel is in the heart of the Pest side of Budapest - so the opposite side of the danube to the castle. We booked, through reception, a tour on the "hop on, hop off" bus at around £15 each for 2 days, and their "stop 4" was outside of the Opera House so also allowed us easy transport and sightseeing.
it is a 10 minute walk to the river, and also a 20 minute walk the other way to Heros square. So this boutique hotel is definately worth the money, and worth booking if you use it as a base for Budapest and then do what you maybe should do in Budapest and get out and see the great joys of the City.
The staff are truly very welcoming and friendly and did help us book a couple fo the Budapest baths\ spas and also dinner reservations.
I totally agree with other reviewers that the room we had on the 3rd floor was clean and renovated and big enough by european standards. No view (as not positioned like the Sofitel or Marriott) but in Budapest you are in the room for not too long anyway.
Taxi from Airport. we used www.bookinbudapest.com and pre-booked a taxi from the airport to Our hotel for 20 euros. everything was confirmed by email, the driver was there in arrivals and the car and ride were perfect. We were so happy that we booked for our return trip as well. This was a great service and worth looking at.
Baths\Spa. We booked the Szechenyi Baths and Pool through the hotel and pre-booked a massage. They do have english signs now and some helpful english speaking-staff and after the first 5 minutes or so to get orintated, the experience was great. worth taking in your own water\ drinks though.
Hop On\ hop Off Tour Bus. At £15 each for the day (with second day free + a boat trip on the danube) this was a great overview starter of the main sights in the City and well worth the price.
