First the good news--there is no better located hotel in the city. The Kempinski is next to the largest shopping area, tons of restaurants, and very close to the Metro, which can get you anywhere you need to go in the city.
The staff was also terrific, but there are things even they couldn't do.
My room was tiny with an interior "view" of other rooms in the hotel. There was no air, a window that barely opened, and it was hot and stifling the entire time I was there. The staff explained that they only had heat available, so there was nothing they could do. If you like your room around 80 degrees, then no problem for you.
The bed was so-so and the linens were something you'd get at a Courtyard Marriott. The pillows were small. The shower was fiberglass.
Satellite services were insanely expensive. A ride from the airport was $140.00 (a cab is around $30.00). Breakfast was about $40.00 and it was crowded, chaotic and not great.
But again, the location can't be beat. This was my third time to Budapest, one of the great cities of the world, and if I make it a fourth time, it won't be at the Kempinski.
