Hotel is excellent. Obviously been a large investment in the property and it's been brought right up to the best international standards. Right from the start the staff are welcoming and very friendly. Check in is fast and efficient.
Hotel refit has retained the character of the hotel whilst also modernising at the same time. Bar is fairly quite in the evening, and with all the good eating places around, we didn't get a chance of eating in the restaurant, so can't comment on the food. Try the Pilinka - mezes Barack (honey and apricot) is lovely.
Our room was on the top floor, and even though the hotel is on a busy road with the #4 & 6 trams stopping right outside the double glazing is extremely efficient and cuts out all noise. Added to that, the bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever known. So a good night's sleep is guaranteed.
The rooms are a really good size and very well equipped, as well as being spotlessly clean. Didn't have a bath in our room, only a shower. But that's not a problem for us. A again, spotlessly clean ever day and well equipped with shampoo, shower gel etc. Our room had a view across the buildings of Budapest to the Palace on the Budapest side. Distant, but still a good view none the less.
Location of the hotel is excellent as well. Tram outside the door and the metro entrance about 20m for the door. The transport system of Budapest is excellent and this location makes getting to all major attractions very very simple. If you stay for a week, go to the metro station and buy a week pass that covers all transport I the city (team, bus, trolley bus, metro and train).
If this hotel is on your list, just book it. Really comfortable stay and thoroughly recommended. Will be back again one day.
