Service, convenience and attention to detail made this hotel a most enjoyable one to stay in during my first visit to Budapest. Three days before check-in, I received an e-mail from the Front Desk asking if I needed anything done in advance of arrival - impressive! Everything that followed confirmed the hotel's commitment to customer service.
Located on the Pest side of the Danube, the hotel is literally a minute away from the Opera House and Opera metro station. About 5 minutes in the other direction you reach Saint Stephen's Basilica. The magnificent Parliament building is a 20-minute walk, and there are several good restaurants nearby. Though just off the famous Andrassy utca, the hotel's location is generally quiet.
My bedroom was spacious and airy, with plenty of storage capacity and easy-to-use hangers. The low bed took some getting used to, and I replaced the floppy pillows with a firmer one, but in general I slept in reasonable comfort. One suggestion I made: a bedside telephone should be provided, especially for those wake-up calls!
The breakfast menu was very comprehensive and satisfying. I liked the fact that breakfast was served up to 11:00, with the champagne providing a reminder of Budapest's imperial past. The food in the Bistro was very tasty, whether you wanted a snack or an evening meal.
Above all, I valued the service provided at reception. On arrival the receptionist reviewed the room requirements I had requested and explained how these would be met. Any inquiries about transport, directions or events were dealt with promptly and most courteously, and my ticket to visit Parliament was printed at reception using my credit card.
I would recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Budapest. Based on this experience, I would also consider other hotels in the K+K family when visiting other parts of Europe.
