We stayed at the Leo Panzio for 2 nights. We chose it for its location and cost and were not disappointed. I first read about this hotel in a Lonely Planet Guide to Budapest and then checked the Trip Advisor comments.
We were a bit concerned when we first saw the building and the lift! They were very old and the building looked worse for wear. The hotel does not take up the whole building so you must catch the lift (or walk up the stairs when you have no luggage) to get to the reception desk.
However the hotel has been redecorated and was clean and fresh looking. It was right in the centre of Pest so it was easy to walk everywhere. The guy at reception for most of our stay was not terribly welcoming but the chap on duty as we checked out was great so guess it depends who you strike! We stayed in Room 10 (after requesting 12, 11 or 10 after reading a T.A. review) which had a great view over the city and was large by European standards. The bathroom was pretty small (no tub) but functional. We didn't find traffic noise a problem.
The breakfast room was small but the waitress friendly & helpful. It was basically help yourself - cereal, yoghurt, fruit, cheese, meat, jam, rolls, coffee & tea with toast always offered.
For its location and price I would definitely recommend this hotel.
