“Well located, well run”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had rooms in the building across the road from the main hotel, linked by a hot bridge. They were not exactly large, but in good order and quiet (they were not on the street side). Wifi was not great. The log in screen did not always appear, and the best experience was gained by standing in the corridor!

We didn't go for the breakfast. You can get monumental snacks for very little money at the market, one stop away on the trams.

The front desk was efficient and friendly. We found the 72 hour public transport tickets (bought by the metro gates at Keleti Station) an excellent way to get around this superb city. If you can find Kalvin Ter metro station, you can't miss this hotel.

Great location close to the Danube and public transport. Hotel was spacious and clean and the staff friendly. Wifi worked wonderful, breakfast was substantial.
All in all a great experience and can certainly recommend.

Just back after a 5 night stay in the above mentioned hotel ,
Located just beside the Kalvin Terr Metro staion and only about 300 metres away from the Danube and the huge indoor market - also on the 47 and 49 tram lines and very near a large choice of nice eateries that cater for all palates .
The Hotel itself is large with over 400 rooms and looks onto the busy Junction but if like us you are not too fussed about the view and opt for quitness the hotel has a part that looks onto an internal Square and is quiet as are all the rooms who have traeted walls to keep out the noise of the room next door and believe me it does work .
we just had the standard double room which was adequate and each room has a personal safe for peace of mind .
We were on the fifth floor room 508 if that is what you want .
The Dining room is on the first floor and is very clean and is tended to by a young but very efficientit is a self service .choice
and I defy you to find nothing to take your fancy and even extends to fresh fruit to take away at the end of your meal .
It has a large foyer and a lovely big bar with lots of seats and tables where you can relax and unwind at the end of a hectic day of sightseeing .
There is 5 terminals for checking and sending emails etc and the staff throughout are courteous efficient and extremely well mannered ..
I would definitely go back to this Hotel in the future

Room Tip: If you want quitness in preference to a view the hotel has rooms that do not face onto the main stre...

The hotel is a solid 4*. Breakfast was really good however skip the scrambled eggs :) The location is perfect - walking distance to all major attractions. The hotel is surrounded by plenty of restaurants and bars.

Friendly staff, clean and quiet room on fifth floor facing a square with tram stop and metro station. Stayed in room 593 but was not bothered by traffic noise as was an earlier reviewer. WiFi in hotel worked very well. Elevator service can be congested at breakfast time if you get there when tour group guests are also using the elevators. Stayed here at the beginning and at the end of our visit to Hungary and felt we got good value for our money. When booking on Internet, look for deals that include breakfast because buying it on arrival is much more costly.

I stayed in the hotel whilst on a course in Budapest. The staff were very polite and helpful. Although the rooms were a little small I was happy with the facilities available, including those in the meeting rooms.
Would definitely consider staying in this hotel on another occasion.

took deposit of 150,000 Florint (£440) on 11 July and still haven't paid it back by 22 July even though they took the correct amount out on 17 July.
Have emailed hotel 3 time with no response.
Nat West Visa disputes team were useless.
I might have to fly back over to get some of it back
Stayed in room 593 and the pvc inner window did not seal properly so a bit of traffic noise at night, when sleeping, told reception 3 times and nothing done about it.
they were good though as i booked five nights and had to go early and they only charged four.
