The Casati hotel is very centrally located at a short walking distance from the Opera, from Metro 1, the coctail bar rated no. 50 world wide (Boutique bar), the Andrassy avenue and, a little further away in Dob Utca (and even further on in the same direction), several ruin pubs like Szimpla Kert.
We had booked a small suite at a very competative winter-rate (room 47) and found the room quite good with exellent beds. Not much luggage space made the large, open room seem somewhat untidy at all times. The house hold cold be more attentive regarding refill of coffee/tea-bags, toilette paper and bathroom amenities, but these are, of course, minor problems.
The breakfast was correct, with a selection of food you would expect. Small, but nice breakfast room. The bar vis-a-vis had an inventive and dynamic decor for the old stone walls.
The staff at the front desk was polite and helpful.
We once more had dinner at the Spinoza over in Dob Utca. Not gourmet, but nice and lively atmosphere. The entré with the panfried foi gras still recommendable. We also tried a restaurant in direction of the river called Tigris. This was a small gourmet restaurant. The food was of good quality but prepared in a way that the taste was a bit anonymous. Professionally smiling and explaining staff, lacking a bit of heart though. Booking recommended.
Our stay was during easter, and a very cold and snowy one it was this year, thus we had ample course to visit cafés. They are in general OK places in our experience and you are welcome wether for lunch, for cakes (some temptation there) or just for a coffee. We could recommend places like the newly reopened café Central, the book café up on Andrassy or the dessert/cake/sparkling wine/coffe-buffet at the Marriot down by the river for the extravagant sum of HUF 2200 (maybe limited off-season period offer?).
For public transport within the city limits (bus, tram, metro, boat), a pass will limit you time in lines to a one-time thing. There are passes for 1, 3, 5 and 7 days (also longer periods). You just show your pass when entering the metro etc.
To finish with the Casati. At a rate like the one we payed (special package 3+ nights as well as low season), we would certainly stay at the hotel again. Absoluteley good value for money.
