The Airport Shuttle Service dropped us outside the rear of the hotel and zoomed away. Confusion set in as we could not find the hotel as it was not marked. A person passing saw our confusion and led us around the other side of the building and assured us this was the place. We buzzed and identified ourselves and were were let in following the directions of the receptionist. After that everything was wonderful. The receptionist Zsuzsi made us very welcome and was so friendly and efficient. The room was adequate for our short stay but very clean and kept that way throughout. Back to Zsuzsi who helped us with information and directions (we were to find out that most Budapestians like her and the rest of the staff were very friendly people, unusual for a capital city. The Metro was close at hand but most things in Pest were within walking distance from the hotel. Although the hotel did not have a restaurant or breakfast room, breakfast was included at the Bali Cafe a two minute walk away. It was a very nice place and the food very good. Our stay was short but we would go back as it is good value for money with efficient, friendly staff and very clean and quiet. It did not give you a feeling of being in a hotel, it was like staying with friends in their apartment block. Thank you Budapest City Central, Bill and Rita
