We stayed here for a romantic weekend for our anniversary and found the hotel surpassed all our expectations. I emailed in advance to arrange champagne in the room upon our arrival and within 10 minutes they had emailed me back with costs, selections and possible payment methods. They organised my transfer to and from the airport in an executive car with comparable prices to standard taxis.
The hotel itself is beautiful and although not overlooking the Danube is still well placed in the city centre. The rooms are clean, a bit small, but well decorated. Budapest itself is easily walked around if you are reasonably fit so the location of this hotel was particularly good for exploring all round the city. The concierges are very helpful organising trips, taxis, tickets for activities etc. every member of staff speaks perfect English putting me to shame ! The breakfast is a lovely buffet with every food hot and cold you could imagine. We ate twice in the evening in the Araz hotel restaurant and it was of a good standard (tip - if you charge your meal to your room then you get 50% off your drinks whilst we were there, making a quality wine around £5 a bottle, so we had several !) not sure when this offer will end ?
In short excellent quality hotel in good location of a fantastic city. You won't be disappointed.
