This hotel is very small - it only has 5 rooms! which means it is very personable, private, and relaxed. Owing to this it seems best suited for couples or small families.
The hotel is quite strict on noise level at night due to the fact it is part of a residential apartment block and the fact that its aim is towards a relaxed stay - so if you are going to Budapest for a stag or hen do then don't stay here.
The hotel is in a courtyard apartment block right opposite the museum, a very short walk from the underground station. The reception is manned 24 hours which makes it easy if you arrive at night. There are several doors to get into the building, all of which have buzzers linked to reception who can let you in. Once checked in you get keys for all the doors so it's easy to get in and out.
The room is fairly standard and spacious, the bed was very comfy, cupboard space, en-suite bathroom, TV, and a complementary bottle of Hungarian white wine on arrival which was a nice touch. The window in the room is double glazed (as well has having the original window on the outside) which helps keep out the noise from the main road outside. You can still hear a bit of noise come through when the windows are shut - but nothing which stopped us from sleeping well each night. There is air con in the room which is great for night time if you don't want the window open.
The hotel is in a perfect location - it is near Rudas street which is full of cheap restaurants, bars and pubs. In the opposite direction of this street is the centre of Budapest, again with lots of restaurants (but at a higher tourist price!).
The location of the hotel makes it easy to explore a lot of the city by foot and it is easy to navigate to and from. Nestled between the downtown ruin pubs, river, and the city centre, it is the perfect location.
The fact that this hotel is small and in a central location is a bonus. There seem to be lots of the the big name hotels in Budapest, however they are all very big and generally located very centrally - some amongst bars ect, so could be very busy and noisy!
If you want a quiet place to lay your head and have a more personal experience then head to this hotel.
On a side note: be careful of the public transport ticketing system. The various tickets they have on offer can be confusing and there are ticket inspectors at all train stations! We even saw a few get on the bus a stop before the airport - who then caught out tourists who had the wrong ticket!
The public transport system is very vast in Budapest which makes it great to get around - just make sure you have a ticket and validate it - otherwise you will get caught out and fined.
