“great building”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

it's a beautiful building . but was a bit disappointed by the guide ! it seems they learned their lesson by heart and just tell the story at an awful speed and you you just end up switching off . even when asking the guide to slow down at numerous time she didn't changed her way !
Pity !

“Impressive building”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

An interesting neo-Renaissance building. We didn't take the tour and it was worth passing thorugh it as part if our walk in Andrassy ut. You might want to pop in if you have a 24 hour metro pass (just stop at the Opera metro station and go back on track).
I wouldn't bother coming here especially. If you don't take the tour you can only see the reception hall (which has interesting painting on the ceiling).
