Picking a hotel at random is often a coin toss, but not with this hotel. Well serviced, helpful staff, quiet comfortable and spacious room, and a great buffet breakfast included in the price. Close to a very nice park, it has easy access to bus and metro service and, if you are a walker, only 15-20 minutes from the heart of the city. For dinner, the staff recommended a local Hungarian restaurant just around the corner - the food was very good and a fabulous violinist and a guitarist provided excellent music. We'd definitely stay there again.
From my bed to a platform on Keleti underground station - 5 minutes, max. From the former to a tram terminus around the corner, maybe 4. For location, it cannot be faulted. Staff were helpful and friendly, and for the most part spoke English. Of course, don't get me wrong, I would never dream to downgrade a hotel in Hungary for employing staff who spoke only their native tongue - that fact merely counts for bonus points in the point of view of this ignorant Anglophone traveller :). Rooms were comfortable, clean and well-serviced. A couple of restaurants on the ground floor. A bar, which was a bit soulless and "expensive", but a proper local's bar 30 seconds' walk along the same street. Fantastic city, ideal hotel, and literally nothing more I could have expected or asked for.
"The hotel was fair and close to public transportation"
My husband and I and our 14 y/o daughter shared a room with 3 single beds. The room was ok but very warm. We had to keep the windows open at night to keep the room cooled off enough to sleep well. We could hear noise from the hall all the time. The breakfast buffet was small as far as choice but got us ready to go for the day. The staff was friendly and spoke a good amount of English. For the price, I would recommend the hotel to a friend, but not to someone who had to stay in a 3 star or higher average hotel.
This hotel is very basic, but is perfect in many ways: great location convenient to all of Budapest's attractions, inexpensive, clean. There are no ACs in the rooms, but somehow the hotel was very cool in spite of ~ 90 degrees F outside.
Nice stay, at an affordable price in the city centre, close to all sightseeing places. Staff were very helpful and friendly, rooms and bathrooms are small but modern and clean and . Beds are confortable and rooms were quiet even though were facing the main street. Vaci street, Gellert Baths and Sikla templom are all at a 5 mins a short walk in straight line towards Danube and Sabadsag Hid. Only one comment on the pool and sauna program as during the week is not open in the mornings (open 3 pm till 9pm) and as we stayed only one night we could not use these facilities before check out. Also try the Pesti Sorcsarnok Pub and restaurant on 14 Vamhaz Korut where you can have the same Hungarian cuisine as on Vaci street but at half the price.
we spent three nights in this very comfortable and modern hotel. we were very impressed with the room ,it was very spacious and had a lovely bathroom.it was great to have kitchen facilities and the breakfast was good. all staff were friendly and helpful we would recommend this hotel.
The room was fantastic and the hotel provides excellent facilities and a lovely breakfast with all the trimmings. I could not fault the staff who were welcoming, friendly and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and best part was its proximity to metro and tram stop.It is a few minutes walk away from both metro and trams and very easy to go around in the city.Lots of restaurants nearby.
Breakfast was excellent with lots of hot and cold options and well managed with so many guests.
We didn't have the ac working properly and that was the only bad thing about our stay.Bathrooms are a bit dated as well but overall our stay was really good.
