              • Family with children

                The hotel is excellent located, easy to reach, close to important sightseeing in Budapest (St. Steven Cathedral).

                The staff was not always friendly/polite as expected from a five star hotel.

              • Family with children

                Everything. Location, building, stuff...

                Ok, parking should be expensive in the city center... but minibar prices could be more pleasant.

                We were given a 20% off to the hotel restaurant and it truly amazed us, great quality and value of food. Staff was always professional and made sure we didn't have to wait long for anything.... but some tried too hard to strike up conversations. Also allowed us to extend out check-out time to 2pm.

              • Family with children

                The reception desk staff were particularly helpful and were able to give clear and useful information about booking rail tickets, places to go and how best to get around. The buffet breakfast was great and gave us the most amazingly good start to the day. We also really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi and being able to read quietly in 4th floor atrium area.

              • Older travelers

                Staff only recommends taxi that charges 2.5 times the rate of taxi recommended by travel sources, They obviously have an "arrangement". We agreed to room upgrade incl. breakfast. Very good deal, but was not told that amount did not include VAT & city tax. Original room rate did include these taxes.

              • Couple

                hotel is beautiful and the rooms are very clean and nicely decorated with a small sofa and table. The staff are extremely helpful and the concierge was always willing to tell us about the local attractions. The location was perfect. The sightseeing buses and underground and trams leave from outside the hotel. You can hear the underground in the hotel rooms but its not loud enough to annoy and it stops at midnight. Would highly recommend Budapest and this hotel.

                Hotel staff, particularly the consierge service were very efficient and were very helpful,

                Services advertised were not available eg No turn down service, complimentary mineral water was not supplied and complimentary newspaper was never available. Overall this is not a 5 Star Hotel

                the staff are responsive to the problem raised.

                It is not like other 5-star Le Meridien hotels i ever stayed. I feel I am in a four star hotel where facilities are not worth the money.
