During a trip vowed above all to sightseeing, my wife and I spent four nights in the K+K Opera in Budapest at the end of July. The hotel is quite well located some 50 m from the lefthand side of the Opera, in a small street parallel to the world heritage Andrassy Avenue. A station of the Metro (line 1, the first metropolitan in Europe, typically Art nouveau style) is at about the same distance from the hotel. The second station from Opera is Déak Tér (Déak Place) where all metro lines meet. Although this position means that it is located in the town centre, the hotel itself is absolutely calm. The standard rooms are OK, very clean and sufficiently comfortable. True broadband Wifi (and an additional ethernet plug) in the rooms are free of charge. The (inclusive) breakfast buffet is rich and meets with practically all, even Japanese, desires. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and you risk to even win their hearts when you have for instance spent some time with the first lessons of Complete Hungarian in the Teach yourself book series. For sightseeing the dense and frequently running public transportation system can be recommended: (1) It is free of charge for EU citizens beyond 65 years and (2) with the help of an iPhone application like MetrO you can see (by the way for most capitals of the world) how you get from one place to another and where you have to change.
All in all, as is Budapest itself, the K+K Opera is highly recommendable.
