What we wanted was somewhere clean, safe and friendly to sleep whilst we were in Budapest. This hotel did all of those things well. The area is residential so is quiet and this is helped by the courtyard arrangement of the hotel. the room was a good size and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful with a good standard of English (way better than my Hungarian). Initially we did struggle slightly to find somewhere to eat but if you head away from town to Hero's Square there are several good places (Not very Hungarian but we liked the Nine Dragons). The included breakfast at the hotel may have been basic but was more than adequate the food was fresh, tasty and kept well supplied. I read other reviews before going and appreciate that not everyone was happy with the location, but we liked Hero Square and used the hop on hop off tourist bus which runs quite close to the hotel so yes it might be nice to be closer to the Danube, but I preferred the quieter residential area and appreciated the better value. The highlight of the trip for me was the Citadel/Gellerts Hill which was great for photography.
