This being my first visit to Budapest, I was completely taken by it.
The hotel is reminiscent of a by gone time when grace came before competition, attention came before dollars. The staff are attentive and quietly spoken and the manager is keen to know how to improve service and environment. We stayed only 4 nights and by the time we left I felt 'part of the family'. We enjoyed a large balcony room, which enabled plenty of room to move. Fittings were either the real deal or reproductions and luxurious curtains to help keep out the cold. A mini bar free of charge.
The rooms sit atop the cafe which one enters via a time warp. Pre Cold War style, and good wholesome food (I recommend the Goulash). At night a harp player performs his unique renditions while the resident canary sings along. Charm, charm, charm.
This hotel reflects a willingness to assist travellers and a yearning to come in to "the 22nd century" as our Manager intimated...however, I asked him not to step too far into the 22nd century, because we have lost a lot as a result.
I would recommend this hotel. There are the few tiny things such as having tissues in the room, but this is nothing compared to what the hotel achieves.
