My wife and I stayed here for four nights and couldn't have asked for more. It was our honeymoon and we arrived late evening for check in, the reception and porter service was excellent and we'd already been upgraded to a deluxe room which was a lovely gesture and kicked our holiday off to a great start! The manager zoltan géher left us a welcome note in the room which was a lovely personal touch!
The deluxe rooms are ample and very quiet on the 5th floor with a nice view of the courtyard. Would highly recommend paying for breakfast upfront as its well worth it, you can order fresh coffee/espresso, omelettes made to order, there's cereal, bacon & eggs etc, pastries, juices and its all fresh and kept topped up, we never had to wait for a table and there's no hidden extra costs.
We also dined in the ARAZ restaurant one evening and was very nice, similarly the galeria cafe does salads to die for and I'd recommend the Celtic margarita cocktail! The service in there is great and its such a relaxing place day or night.
Round the corner from the hotel is the new York cafe which is a must see as is the zoo a couple of clicks down the road which is a nice walk. In the other direction is the town centre 10 mins walk away. You don't really need to taxi anywhere as the hotel is in a central location and the city is all flat.
There's a safe, minibar, good sized wardrobe in the room, there's a tv too with only one English channel but then again why would you travel all the way to Hungary to watch tv???
I seriously cannot recommend this hotel enough, nothing is too much for any of the staff and the hotel itself is a marvel of architecture, I wouldn't hesitate to book again!!
