The Hotel was easy to find, less than one block from the M1 station. The location was good with the M1 station just 100 meters from the hotel and trams 4 and 6 a bit longer walk away at Oktogon. It was really easy to get from the Hotel to sights around the city with the travel card. There are a lot of restaurants around Liszt Ferenc tér just 500 meters away which was very nice on our first night as we arrived pretty late and just walked over there.
The breakfast was on the borderline between bad and acceptable. The breakfast staff was usually smoking on the balcony and items were run out for quite a while before the staff got to refilling them. This did include the water for the coffee machine.
The room was ok. The windows are to the common balconies surrounding the inner courtyard. There was also an occasional smell of sewer in the room, but not really often or bad enough to be a deal breaker. The lighting in the bathroom was pretty dim for shaving etc.
The Hotels has also a few oddities as for example to get to your floor in the elevator you have to press the floor number exactly five times. If you press it six times you have to press another four to get to ten for it to accept your input.
The safe is only at the reception and when we reclaimed our possession from there we were first offered quite a few items not ours so the staff does not keep too good records of what items are whose.
In summary: the breakfast is not worth much (do not pay a premium for it), location is good and as the price was right we were pretty satisfied.
