I recently stayed here in late October for 3 nights with 2 other people.
The location of the botel is decent as it is right beside Margaret Island, great for walking around and relaxing. Due to the construction around the Parliament currently it adds some time when walking to the centre but both in daylight and night time the views along the Danube are breathtaking so more time spent strolling the streets and the river was not really a problem.
We reserved the triple private room without washroom and it averaged outto be 11€/night, 10€ if you have the HI membership. For this price we had a good size room with 3 single beds, a view out on the water and of Margarit Island, a sink and a good size armoire. The bathrooms were right beside our room. In this price we also had breakfast which was amazing and I will describe below.
The ONLY downside that I normally would change the rating to a 4 (but everything else makes it a 5), were the washrooms and showers. If there was a room where the shower and toilet were included it may be a different story but for the shared washrooms they were not the cleanest. The male and female washrooms were separated but when using the shower there was no door or lock, just a curtain, but absolutely no where to put your clothes or towel. We did not find the toilets worked very well either.
In regards to the breakfast that was included in the price, for what we ate and what was offered the price is a given. The breakfast was buffet style and choices were not lacking. From scrambled eggs, bacon; sausages, to deli meats for sandwiches, cereals and fruit and yogurt there was plenty of variety. Tables were cleared up fast and we never had a problem with food running out or dirty tables.
The service was really good. The attendants answered all of our questions and provided us with advice as well!
My boyfriend liked the location at night, especially the deck that looked out towards the island, bridge and lit-up monuments from afar so much so that he proposed to me on the deck and we are now engaged! This place will always now have a little special place in my heart!
