    Great location and cheap room rates but...Power outlets didn’t work very well and we couldn’t charge our devices. Room was not well ventilated so it smelt damp. Lifts are slow.

    Great location with easy access to metro, tram, restaurants & some sights are close by. Down side is lifts take a while & there was noise from construction. No option to use fan/aircon instead of heater so had to open windows for short periods to avoid stuffiness. Front desk staff are quite helpful & we got to store our luggage when we travelled to Vienna so got to take only what we needed for the short trip. Bottled water was provided so that was good too!

    Great Location to get to the museums and old town”

    It is not located right smack in old town but this location has its charm as its near the bridges to easily cross over from Pest to Buda and a short walk to the Main Central Market. Located near the jewish quarter, and also at one of the main stations, its quite easy to get to other places within Budapest if one is too tired to walk. Having a junior suite room we also automatically get to enjoy their evening specials at the lounge. They did forget to set up our extra bed but they were rather prompt in making sure they did so as soon as we called housekeeping.

    Location, staff attention and value for money

    Booked a twin room under children under 12 stay free for 2 adults and 2 children. Pleasant surprise: big room and 2 extra beds at no charge. Clean room and bathroom, very nice breakfast. Note: while there, buffet breakfast was served in two adjacent spaces. Same choice, however one of them had the so called called "hungarian corner" with some extra yummy stuff. Location is great: we had a great view onto Kalvin ter, the church and the museums garden, all at once - had a corner room. Easy walk through to the Vasarcsarnok (old central markets), Gellert baths and all the way up to Lanchid. Great public transport connection: 2 metro lines, trams 47 and 49 at the door, ram 2 at 5 minutes walk.

    Room is quite small. They didn't clean it everyday just to pick up trash. We had to ask for more soap. Concierge very nice and helpfull. We took car from hotel to airport for about €25.

    Worst Stay”

    On arrival, staff tried to charge us for city tax when we had already paid and staff were very rude about it. Rooms not clean, towels missing, toilet paper not replenished when cleaning was done. On the last evening a homeless drunk man was slumped in a chair at the at the lifts on the 9th floor for over 1 hour. I felt unsafe and brought it to the attention of the staff who could not care in the slightest. They could not tell me how long he was sitting there as security was off site and took over 30mins to arrive and escort the gentleman. Entrance is pleasing but it clearly stops there!

    Reviewed October 24, 2017

    Dear Brandon, thank you so much for rating and reviewing us on Agoda. I am extremely sorry because of the negative experience. As you have already discussed by Email with our Rooms Division Manager, we have started the compensation procedure immediately on 9th October. Please let him know directly by Email if there is any problem with that. As I told you on spot, our security guard did his best to identify the person who was sitting in the public area, and also you have seen when he accompanied him out of the hotel. Good news that during the soon starting renovation process our elevators will have got key card security function, too. Thank you again for your remarks. If you give us a chance to earn back your trust, I can assure you that we will do our best to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of.

    Perfect location as right on top of a metro station and a 5 minute walk from the river. Staff were very friendly and rooms were clean but very basic facilities. The swimming pool was more like a stainless steel sink so cold we couldn't get in the water and when we got to breakfast (charged at €10pp) at 8:30 there was little or no hot food available. Functional but not memorable for the right reasons
