Exceptional all round decor in rooms and public areas. Nice pool area though outdoor was closed but indoor pool, spa and sauna open for guests. Lovely friendly all round hotel and reasonable prices for their level of accommodation. Top Breakfasts too. Excellent for Jewish visitors as located in the old Jewish quarter and close to the main Synagogues and Kosher eateries. I did the whole shabbat shtick at Kacinsky Shull and pre-paid shabbat meals at Hanna's Restaurant in same courtyard. Cholent was tops. Great Hotel at reasonable price.

Room Tip: They have both smoking and non smoking floors.

Dear OzzieBusa,
thank you for your kind review. I was happy to read how satisfied you were with our hotel including the breakfast too. The location was ideal for your Shabbat - it was also a good news for me.
Such a good experience is worth to return. Do not hesitate, you are welcome!

The location of this hotel is perfect ,set back off the busy main road and a short walking distance to the main attractions. The building is very grand and has been renovated to a high standard, the bedrooms are are lovely, very clean, comfortable and modern. The gallery bar is perfect for an early evening drink, whilst listening to the grand piano being played excellently. Roof top pool and sunbathing area was a nice retreat from the city centre heat. All in all an excellent hotel with friendly, professional staff . Thank you I had a great time.

Dear Roba108,
thnak you for listing all the unique selling points of our hotel. What made me especially happy that you listed the friendly service too. Since the human factor makes the difference although the facilities are important too in the success of a hotel. It was good to read too, that you liked the location of the hotel, because not all the guests agree on this.
I hope you will have a chance shortly to return.

My partner and I stayed at this beautiful modern hotel and from the moment we arrived to the time we left the service was impecable.
As we came out of the taxi the staff were there to take our luggage, we were checked in efficiently and politely, and once done the staff then took our luggage up to our exquisite room. The room was beautiful, very modern and luxurious with bath robes, all accompiniments and it was very stylish and lovely.
The service in the hotel was fabulous, every member of staff was polite and attentitive, with praise going to Vivienne in the cocktail bar lounge who made our visit extra special with humour and charm.
The ammenities at the hotel are excellent, from the inviting rooftop pool to the delicious selection of foods at breakfast.
This hotel is stylish, luxurious and they really go out of their way to make you stay special and relaxed. Well recommended.

Dear Bjleslie01,
many thanks for your great personal review highlighting our roof top swimming pool, the good atmosphere and selection at breakfast, the size of the executive room. What made me even happier is your compliments on Vivienne at our Galery Cafe. I have certainly praised her for the excellent job she made.
The attribute "luxurious" was very flattering for us, although I have to add that our hotel's official category is 4 star superior, but we aim for maximality.
Looking forward to your return and please recommend our hotel among your friends.

Have just returned and didn't want to leave. I can't agree with the comment below about the breakfast; it was delicious, with plenty of variety. The staff are all very helpful and friendly, we loved the rooftop pool and made good use of the spa facilities.
If I had to pick something to gripe about, I'd say that I thought the bathroom was a bit poky, and the shower cubicle was very small, but that's all.
The hotel is in a good location and very easy to find. It's very close to Astoria metro station, and has some excellent restaurants nearby - I'd recommend the Terzo Cerchio next door, or a few streets away are Fulemule, and best of all Koleves (we went three times). However if you don't feel like eating out there's a Tesco on the corner for snacks or a picnic.

Dear Martane,
many thanks for your review and for standing by the quality of our breakfast.Yes, you are right, in general the standard rooms are quite small, but the average stay in our hotel - like in most of the city hotels - is 2,1 days and guest do not spend their time in the hotel room. We provide however much more spacious deluxe and executive rooms for a small premium.
I hope you will not find any excuse to return, since you are again welcome!

Bit of a rundown area of the city but it is enough to access all points of interest, the city tour bus runs close by. Everything is newly built or renovated. Great rooftop pool(s). Garage parking under hotel. The big annoyance is breakfast service in the overcrowded restaurant where hoardes of people scramble to serve their own breakfast. Watered down fake orange juice, horrid coffe, boring vienioisserie. Come on; please try harder, the breakfast was a hideoues and unnececesarily bad experience. The hotel staff are incredibly helpful except useless bellhops who watch you struggle with luggage though this seemed to happen in other E European hotels

Dear PUTNEYBIKER,
thanks for your high scores despite of some critisism. As of July we have changed the juices, they are all natural 100% juices. The crowd - especially if guests are coming at the same time - has been ceased, as not all the room rates include breakfast and the restaurant terrace is also available for breakfast. I would be happy if you would share your thoughts with me about the bell boys since your remarks are not quite clear for me.
Anyway, thank you for your - overall - positive review and look forward to welcoming you agian!

A 4 night enjoyable stay on business. Hotel about 15 minute walk from the Danube.

Room
Whilst nicely (but simply) decorated, the standard room is quite small. There is no desk or desk chain just a stool. I was in a street facing room and also had a widow seat but neither of these are ideal for a business traveller wanting to work in the room. To add the lighting is also pretty poor if you want to work. That said the bed was comfortable and corridors quite. The bathroom layout was not great as the shower cubicle was too small. When the windows were shut the room was quite but the roads outside can be noisy.

Bar/ restaurant
The restaurant was very busy for breakfast but much quieter at other meal times. The breakfast choice was good. The bar was smart and comfortable.

Public areas
The entrance hall is grand and welcoming with original features of the former baths. The small courtyards are comfortable to sit out in.

Leisure
The roof top pool looked like a nice place to chill out, although I did not use.

Would stay again
