Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It was a very hotel, however during our stay there was a convention going on and my room happened to be on the far end of the hotel so I had to Edmonton through the main hall of hotel where they had their food set up and had to maneuver my way through with the luggage. Also the elevators were confusing and was not explained at check in. Good location to Cathedral and restaurants.

3 night stay.
Lovely hotel and value for money. Check in staff not up to standard of the hotel itself. Think training but not knowledgeable enough about parking situation around hotel which was a shame. Otherwise excellent stay and would stay again.

Really nice place, safe and quiet
It was a very fast, easy check-in. Staff took our bags and the location is perfect for a quick walk to the Hungarian parliament and back to get our keys at 3 pm. All very friendly and excellent breakfast bar.

Disappointing for the price paid
Overall, the hotel is average at best. The location is good and central in Budapest. Our room was serviced everyday, which is a nice change from recent experience at other places after COVID. Other services are however very disappointing. You have to scan a QR code to request services - you can’t phone reception. We requested a clothes iron 3 times this way, and also asked reception in person another 2 times - we are still waiting today and could not iron our clothes for the wedding we were attending. The towel warmer was not working, also not the hand shower. This was also not addressed after using the QR code to request this to be addressed. The response time was also not good, it took more than 3 hours for a response after commenting on the site, and then none of the issues were addressed as per above. The bathroom also shows signs of excessive wear and tear. The plastic trim on the shower door is broken. The sleeper couch is not comfortable at all. Overall, I would not recommend the hotel especially not for the price paid.
