"Nice inexpensive hotel short walk from city center"
Great inexpensive hotel in Budapest just a 10-minute walk from the city center. Really friendly staff (shoutout to Marton the bartender for teaching us the rules of darts!), clean and a delicious free breakfast. We had a few issues with our room (the safe stopped working, the blinds on one of the windows got stuck halfway down, and it was quite hot because the towel rack warmer could not be turned off in the bathroom and there was no air condition yet as it was only March), but the staff quickly came to fix the safe and the blinds, and they turned off the towel rack warmer for us so the room cooled down. They gave us drink vouchers for our troubles and we used them to have a local craft beer called RoadRunner, which was delicious (and then had several more for good measure)!
The hotel staff was amazing! The breakfast was delicious with eggs to order, fresh squeezed orange juice and cappuccino. The daily two hour wine and cheese reception was a wonderful way of relaxing after a day of sightseeing and walking. The room was quiet and very comfortable. We were welcomed with fresh fruit and water in our room. The location is great - you can walk almost everywhere and the metro is a block away. The Basilica is right next door, which is great landmark for finding the hotel if you are directionally challenged like me. We forgot our passports in the room when we left for the airport, but with a simple phone call, a driver was sent directly to the airport to drop it off before we missed our flight home. The spa was great as well. I wish I could have stayed longer!
"Pleasant hotel walking distance to all attractions"
We arrived after dark and the area around the hotel is so viby, with al fresco diners and drinkers, yet it fees safe and civilised.
Given the liveliness I was slightly worried about noise levels but we were given a 7th floor room and there was no noise at all.
The hotel staff are efficient and fast, and the room was cleaned to a good standard.
The location is as good as it gets in my view. You get the liveliness of Pest on your doorstep, and are still a very reasonable walking distance to Buda.
In a nutshell, if you are looking for a nice place to stay in a great location without breaking the bank this hotel is perfect.
On the eastern side of the Danube, Pest is Buda’s flatter, edgier cousin. Tree-lined Andrassy Avenue was originally designed as Budapest’s answer to the Champs-Elysees. Heroes’ Square lies at the eastern end of Andrassy Avenue and is home to the impressive Millennium Monument. Hungarian gifts, food, and souvenirs can be found in Pest’s multi-storey Great Market Hall, the largest in Budapest.
