I have just come back from a 4 day city break - staying in this hotel was fantastic, the location is very central, about 200m from the metro and the same to the Christmas markets, the open air thermal pools are a short metro ride away or a leisurely 45 min walk down a long straight road, Staying in room 309 to the rear of the hotel, the view wasn't up to much but that didn't worry me to much, there is plenty to do and see right outside the hotel, including the magnificent Basilica church approx 100m away, a truly awesome building with a breath taking interior, if your lucky enough to be there on a Sunday morning and go inside (free) you can hear the church quire singing (imagine St Pauls Church in London). The journey to the hotel was very easy, jump on the 200E bus straight outside the Airport after getting your ticket from the news agent just inside the airport terminal (325 HUF) about a quid, the bust drops you off at a terminus point, off the bust straight onto the M3 blue line metro another 323 HUF and that drops you 200m from the hotel, which is Central Budapest. The night life was very good, lots of places to eat out, a very nice jazz club about 50m away from the hotel was a hidden gem, you dont know its there walking passed on the cobblestone path, I got asked in after looking at the drinks and food menu in the window, its down stairs in a very open and spacious cellar, a four piece band and a bottle of wine (2900 HUF) passed most of the early evening nicely, there are some fantastic restaurants nearby, try them all you wont be dissapointed, they are all very reasonably priced, around 20 to 30 pounds for a meal for two inc drinks, most also accept Euro. A ride on the Danube on a cruiser is another thing to try, again around 900HUF for an hours trip, very nice and very good value for money, seeing both Buda and Pest from a central location. The open air Thermal pools are an absolute must do, get a changing cabin, take your own towel and flipflops, have a great time, I did and would go back, and defo to this hotel, the staff are very very helpful and the hotel rooms are very clean and mahoosive, TV and mini bar inc
