Stayed here with my daughter in January 2012. This hotel represents excellent value, its location right near the Elizabeth bridge could not be bettered, all attractions are within walking distance.
The entrance is a bit off-putting but reception area is fine and rooms are large, warm, spacious, very clean and comfortable. i requested a room with river view on checking in and was given one with balcony overlooking Danube at no extra cost. Bathroom was clean and there was ample hot water.
The restaurant/breakfast area was absolutely fascinating. Breakfast was fine although coffee was a bit disappointing.
Excellent places to eat near by, try the "100 Year Old Restaurant" actually much older and with very talented violinist, double bass and key board. Food was superb. This restaurant is just off the Vaci Utca. Also try Amstell River Cafe, very good, filling, tasty meals, friendly atmosphere, cosy, open till midnight, on Parizi St, off Vaci Utca. The Cafe Central is also excellent although a little more pricy.
Would have tried the hotel restaurant if we were there for longer.
Would certainly return to this hotel.
