“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

This hotel is ideally located for touring Budapest. We spent four nights here following a river cruise. We upgraded our room to insure a great view of the Danube and Chain Bridge and it was worth it! The staff is excellent - friendly and helpful. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The views from some rooms are blocked by the Intercontinental Hotel next door, but ours was fine. The breakfast buffet was included in our package and it was great. Altogether a very good experience.

stayed there for three days before a river cruise. Had a suite facing the river. The room was great, the service outstanding. We also had the use of the "executive room/suite" (I think that what they call it) on the 8th floor. They had a nice breakfast there, fruits, coffee, juices and tea all day. Also wines, beers, small sandwiches and sweets from 5 to 8 pm. The best such suite that I have seen in a high end hotel. The place seems to be relatively new. The staff was most helpful in getting us reservations for restaurants and stuff. I would It is within walking distance of the city center, several tourist sites and the riverfront. I highly recommend it and we would definitely stay there again.

Perfect location right next to the chain bridge. The room was nice and clean. The service was good. There is a great outside patio for drinks that over looks the Danube. Great people watching. I really liked the vibe!

Room Tip: The location is awesome!

I recently stayed at this hotel in May and was really surprised.
This hotel is really great - clean, beautiful, with great staff and so on. But the biggest advantage is the magnificent view onto Danube from the room. Especially at night. This view is the must!
For the rest - very good food, extremely polite personnel, excellent location.

Room Tip: Take river view room. It is awesome.

just next to the chain bridge,the views from the rooms are just fantastic.
ensure you get danube facing rooms-the corner suites are spectacular.
the interiors are dated and need renovation but the views make up for it.

Well positioned right at the Syecheni (Chain) Bridge in the centre of Budapest. The rooms are roomy and well designed, a lovely open plan lobby / piano bar area. The staff, contrary to some reviews have been nothing but helpful and polite on my various stays. Breakfast is very good and well worth the extra time to set yourself up for the day.
