        The hotel is only six months old so everything is new and clean. It is tastefully decorated, located in the center of the city and the staff is friendly. It was a pleasant break from the impersonal, larger hotels in the city.

        We were very fortunate to have a special upgrade through the site, and enjoyed the luxury of the room and use of the pool and spa area. The location is fantastic, close to attractions, transportation and shopping

        The breakfast was expensive compared to other hotels of its class, and there was not the variety or selection of fresh foods expected. I am sure they will improve on their breakfast menu as international travelers continue to enjoy the hotel.

        The newly renovated hotel is fresh, spacious and quiet. The location is wonderful for central Budapest business and tourism. The personnel are helpful and well presented.

        The indicated rate for breakfast (when not included in the room price) was too expensive for my taste. 18Euro is steep for a hotel breakfast in Budapest. I ate elsewhere as a result.

        Only the fact that in the smaller rooms, there is a mini bar fridge.This fridge puts out a lot of heat into the room. When you get back the room is baking....

      • Older travelers

        Neat, clean, friendly hotel. The hotel also had a fast Internet connection, and fast service too.

        Small rooms, small bathroom (our room was only a "standard" double room). While the price was appropriate for what we got, one would however expect more space in a 4-5 star hotel.

        The leisure facilities were excellent. They were clean and offered a good balance of activities. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff were polite and helpful and spoke very good English. I would stay in this hotel again if I were to visit Budapest in future and would be happy to recommend it.

        Although there was a lot of variety at breakfast, there was no orange juice available or regular teabags. For me tropical mango and apple juice are not really my taste.

      • Group of friends

        The location was just the best part of it.

        The staff were very unfriendly and the services in the hotel are very primitive. I do not know how this has been classified as a 5 star hotel.

        • Average rating
      • Older travelers

        Location. Comfortable beds. Value for money. Pool. Generally little noise from the corridors etc.I was impressed that the hotel taxi driver taking us to the airport was a former Olympic Gold medallist weightlifter.

        Breakfast seemed expensive. Reception staff could have been a little more friendly although one young lad was very helpful. Could have done with a better illuminated bathroom mirror or a well-lit bedroom mirror. Restaurant appeared to be an underground bunker. Hotel charged more than 2,000 HUF more than the usual price of 3,600 HUF for their taxi to the airport (perhaps because the driver was a former Olympic Gold medallist!!!!!)

        I've chosen this hotel because of its location, and from this respect I didn't regret. Unfortunately this is all I can mention on the positive side.

        The staff's behave is well below the level you would expect from a 4star hotel. Just one important thing: Watch out what kind of taxi they arrange for you (even if they promise your choice they order the one with which "they are in contract" = will cost you double)! I usually pay more for an accommodation exactly because I want to avoid such a bad experience. This time it didn't work.

        Hotel was clean with god sized rooms. Excellent location to be able to walk to most sights.

        The front desk staff were snotty, bordering on rude. They were less than accomodating. We extended our stay as our travel plans had changed, and were told that we would have to vacate our room, put our luggage in storage and re-check in after 2pm, only to be given the exact same room!

        • Average rating
      • Couple

        The room is too small, no kettle or any coffee and tea in the room. It's not up to a 5 stars standard based on my opinion. The swimming pool is very small. The Junior Suite I stayed with no proper windows, it's just a normal room, should not be named as a Junior Suite

        • Average rating
      • Couple

        The hotel is not a 5 star, but more a bad 4 star because: no iron in the room, no glases in bathroom, realy small room, we wanted just some ice and two glasses in our room and from the restaurant they told us they will charg us 10 euros!!???crazy! When i wanted to call the reception from my room there was nowhere the number so i had to call it from my phone. The guy from the reception was funny but thats for sure not something you expect from a 5 star hotel.
