We chose this hotel as it was offered by LuxuryLink.com - that we use extensively-and because of the mainly positive reviews on Trip Advisor.
We were not disappointed! Our package included the Gold Suite, for 3 nights, with breakfasts, welcome bottle of Sparkling Wine (very nice) and bottle of white wine, plus an evening meal on 1 night. It was a set menu which we found very good, particularly the soup. Service was by a very warm and amiable gentleman - overall a nice evening meal and experience. Breakfast buffet was good too - good choice of fruits, meats, breads, cereals and hot dishes.
We were met at the train station and also taken to airport for our departure - all part of our package - which was an incredible value!
Staff were very quiet yet professional.
Would recommend without hesitation - our suite was very modern ailbeit in a very old building. 800sq.ft of very nicely appointed furnishings and a very good bathroom. All fixtures were of good quality and appeared quite new - very deep bath - hand shower instead of formal shower, a bidet too!

I liked everything: the location of the hotel (in the old part of Buda, near the bridge section), number (lived in bronze) service. Very hospitable and friendly staff. The restaurant at the hotel are extremely delicious. Special thanks to Diana, Lena, and Istvan.
Inconvenient to wash in the bathroom because of the lack of curtains

We got a junior suite with a discount package: the hotel is rather expensive and is useful to find some discount. Big rooms with almost antique furniture in a perfect location to visit the Buda side of the city.
Parking is a bit complicated but there was always room for e car within few yards from the hotel.
The personnel is gentle but rather unflexible, maybe due to the rules of the management.
In our package we had a transportation to/from airport that, arriving by car, we did not used and was impossible to exchange for some other stuff. One dinner was part of the package too but it was a fixed menu one, without any choices and rather poor.
Better not to have it.

We booked a special for a Gold suite at the Bronze rate. It was located right on the courtyard, nicely decorated and very spacious. The building may be 700 years old, but it's certainly been remodeled and updated. The king bed was comfy, and the bathroom was huge. Our package did not include breakfast, which was fine with us, as we went to the Great Market Hall and picked up pastries, cheeses, sausages, pate and other goodies for early and mid-day snacks. Welcome bottle of wine and complimentary champagne were nice. Didn't eat in the restaurant, and both it and the bar looked pretty empty. The #16 bus was a great help, catching it nearby to go wherever we needed to go (including to the metro station). The staff was always very helpful and courteous. The views of Pest from Castle Hill (just 5-minute walk) were fantastic, especially at night. It is a little quiet there if you're looking for nightlife (we weren't particularly). It was slightly unnerving to be awakened from an afternoon nap by a couple rather loudly enjoying cocktails at the table right outside our bedroom window though.

We stayed here for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer! Bronze suite was terrific! Excellent location for exploring the city. We took public transportation & walked everywhere else. Loved the welcome bottle of wine & welcome champagne. Wonderful courtyard. Ate one meal which was fine. Enjoyed seeing closed beautiful conference rooms as well. Gracious staff. LOVED it & would absolutely return.

We had a pleasant stay there, but also some weird experiences.
I chose it, because of its location directly in old town of Budapest. I had to do a bit of research to find out how to get there, because traffic is limited there. On one page in the net, I read that you need a special permittance to enter this area. So I wrote an email to the hotel at 11 pm and got an answer right away. You drive until one of the barriers and press at the ticket machine "hotel", then you give this ticket to the concierge, he makes it valid for you and you can leave old town whenever you like. So we had booked one night, but parked our car in front of the hotel for 2 days, which was very comfy for an extended walk around there on the day of our departure. So much for helpfulness of staff and parking.

The hotel itself is beautiful. Large suites, ours, gold suite, had entry area with kitchenette, followed by sleeping room, living room and bathroom. Very spacious and stylish. There was a complimentary bottle of wine in the room, we got some welcome drinks (2 champagne and a juice for the kid) and in the freezer were already ice cubes.
We were travelling with our little daughter, so we used the kitchen. Either they should provide more pots and pans, only one of each there, or some dish washing tools. We only stayed there for one night, but I guess, if you want to cook more or for e.g. reheating something, it would be helpful to have some sponge and soap.
There was also a big mirror missing, body length, in case you wanna check your outfit. In our case, my wife had to climb a chair to see her dress in the existing mirror.
The hotel info book in the room says, the restaurant closes at 11pm. We celebrated there our anniversary and went to the restaurant at 20:30. The waiter immediately told us they are closing soon and the book is old. He stayed friendly and we still could order, but ten minutes later, we would have been in trouble. So update your books guys. My wife wanted to order the chicken leg, but the waiter recommended not to do so. I asked why, he just meant, don't do it. Instead he suggested the "hortobagy" meat pancakes. From chicken legs to minced beef pancakes, hardly a substitute. Food was good though.

Breakfast next morning was also good. I read the reviews here and don't understand at all some comments. It was quality stuff and a lot to choose. Cooked egg, scrambled egg, if you ask, I guess they make you fried ones too. Sausage, bacon, cheese etc, cereals, yoghurt, lovely pastries and breads and I never ever had some grilled vegetables at a breakfast buffet (for sure fresh and not some leftovers, cause my side dish the previous evening were grilled veggies and that was different). Coffee, tea, juice bar of course as well. So what more to ask?

The stay was as mentioned, a nice one. At home came a bit of a downer. I took a quick look at the room bill and I saw on the invoice bill, that the receptionist billed us some small amount for using the mini bar. Not that this 400 huf/1.5 € make me poor now, but there is a principle involved, its the cheating kinda feeling I don't like.
Of course it's my fault, I should have checked the bill there. But I asked to pay the restaurant bill from the previous evening in cash and I remembered it was some 6000Huf. The receptionist asked me, if we had something from the minibar and I said no. So I don't understand why a minute later, he puts an additional amount on my bill, while I also gave a generous tip (for the waiters, I assume now, they will not see it). I simply trusted this guy in a 5 star house, which was obviously wrong.
Again, the amount is minimal, but a house like that should not release their customers with such a feeling.

Room Tip: We had a (gold) suite, which was on the corner to two streets. On fortuna ut. the bus runs quite oft...
