The place had been recommended, and although I was surpised by the number of stairs, the fact that the owner had claimed I had no booking (when I had a copy of the email from months before, confirming my booking!) and the icy - I don't just mean the weather - reception on the intercom when I asked for help with my luggage, were not a good start. I had been traveling almost 9 hours from Austria (I am over 70) and my request for a warm drink was met with "I don't do meals" and an electric jug dumped in front of me. The bed was lumpy and not properly made and the 9 TV channels all in Hungarian, although she claimed to have satellite. The room was like a cell, in the lower part of the pension and after an extremely uncomfortable night deciding that this was not the friendly place I had been led to expect, I left straight after breakfast next morning and stayed happily in the beautiful Gellert Hotel at the bottom of the hill. Esta was very rude the whole time and at no point was there a word of welcome. She 'found' my booking in time to charge me for 2 days and nights, which I didn't argue about, so glad was I to get out of there!
