Enjoyed our stay in this hotel in July-August of this year. The personnel is very helpful. Check-in took under 5 minutes. I have, on several occasions, seen bus load of tourists arrive and everybody on their way to the elevators with their room keycards in a jiffy. That's admirable efficiency!
The location is not ideal i.e. not in the city's center, however, the Metro station (Puskás Ferenc Stadion) is just behind the hotel. It takes less than 15 minutes to get to known attractions located near say, Blaha Lujza tér or Astoria stations. Trains arrive in 2-5 minutes interval. The Arena plaza mall which houses restaurants and wide variety of shops, is just a 10 minute walk from the hotel.
We stayed in a three person room (109) but I believe it is a stretch to call it that. If I am not mistaken it is similar to the two person room plus additional bed. There is nothing to complain about though, as we only paid around EUR465 in our 7 nights of stay.
Why hotels, like this one, insist on charging for WI-Fi internet access from guest rooms remains a conundrum to me. Nowadays, it is similar to charging for use of the television.
