Me and my wife chose this hotel based on its location, and in terms of this we pretty much got what we hoped for. With 15 - 20 minutes walking distance to Danube river (with the Jewish quarter on the way), some 30 minutes to the city park and a subway station just nearby It turned out to be a good starting point for exploring Budapest. However, the room we got was very small (though perfectly clean and well equipped) and only had one small window. And first we were assigned to a room that totally reaked by smoke though we travelled with an infant and had explicity asked for a non smoking room. The staff in the reception were not very understanding when we brought this to their attention and asked for another room.
The hotel restaurant was a big disappointment. It had a sign with a Guide Michelin star from 2009 in the window, but there was absolutely nothing Guide Michelin about it. The dinner was quite pricy by Budapest standards, but the food was ordinary and served in very small portions. The breakfast buffet was also pricy but offered nothing special and little variety.
Some suggestions on what to do in Budapest: Go to the thermal baths in the city park, Széchenyi. Totally amazing. Staying in the hot outdoor pool when it is cold outside surrounded by the beautiful building - fantastic!
Go inside the church next to the Fisherman´s bastion. Beautiful!
Walk by the bridges crossing Danube after dark watching the Gellert and castle heights.
Try the Langos in the upper floor of the Nagy vásárcsarnok.
