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.
The hotel is silent considering it is right on the bus, metro & tram stop on Blaha Luijza square. It's spotlessly clean & the service is great. Very modern rooms in a historical setting hotel. Very nicely done.

Hotel is situated with 5 minutes walk to metro station for easy access around city, and close enough to walk and cycle to all destinations Budapest has to offer. Hotel was quiet, spotlessly clean, big comfy rooms, really good bathroom and the staff were more than helpful with any requests. This hotel is great value for money and I would definately stay here again on visiting the great city of Budapest.
I was pleased with this hotel. It's a nice place, the staff is very attentive, and the woman who runs it...you get the feeling that she genuinely and anxiously wants to make sure her guests are happy. She offered to make whatever we wanted for breakfast, she ran and got me an iron and ironing board from another hotel when the one she had was being used, and the front desk helped us with all our travel needs, including helping us set up airport shuttles, finding popular tourist attractions, etc. One small problem is that I couldn't access the WiFi from my room on the 4th floor, could only get it in the lobby or lower floors. And the beds were a bit uncomfortable. None of that is a big deal. They had A/C, spacious rooms, a nice balcony, etc. The biggest problem is that it is in a crappy neighborhood. It's in the middle of the Pest side of town. My wife was honestly scared when we made our way there. So the hotel is nice, neighborhood isn't. I guess maybe the upside is that that will save you money. I feel like I got a great deal because of that, and the fact that it's kind of far from the city center. And it's nowhere near a subway, but it's right next to a bus stop that took us right to the city center.
