A lovely hotel which is well situated for visiting the Buda part of Budapest. We liked the furniture and also in the smart and clean room (we had a silver suite), with plenty of draws & wardrobe space, and, unusually, lots of power sockets in useful locations for charging phones, cameras, etc. The small fridge was a good size: not tiny, and there was a good supply of crockery. The service by the staff was very good and helpful, advising us regarding taxis (we found Max Taxi to be very cheap) and spas: their recommendation of the St. Gellért Baths was very helpful and accurate. But there were some minor oddities: the supplied coffee was a "3-in-1" instant with coffee, creamer and sugar in one sachet, not useful if one doesn't take sugar! The tea was either fruit or Earl Grey, and no fresh milk nor creamer supplied, so black tea was the order of the day. There were more minor oddities too: the breakfast, though pleasant, wasn't up to the 5-star experiences I've had elsewhere, for example in Poland. The bar has not seating, so one has to sit in the breakfasting area of the restaurant. So I'd be hesitant to call this a 5-star hotel in terms of features, but a very good 4-star or 4.5 star.
