We stayed at Bo18 Hotel Superior for two nights and had an absolutely great experience!
We arrived on the over-night train from Prague so we were in the lobby of Bo18 Hotel Superior by about 8:30am. I think the reception staff could see that we were quite tired but, honestly, I did not ask or expect them to have a room ready for us. Before I could even ask for an early check-in, the staff said that a room should be ready in 20-30 mins and encouraged us to relax in the lobby or have breakfast until the room is ready! We were in the room before 10am and at no extra charge! (Of course, I'm sure that this is offered only when rooms are available, but it was very thoughtful and kind offer!) The remainder of our stay was equally enjoyable.
The rooms are clean, well-lit, modern and comfortable. We were given a handicap-accessible room so the dimensions of our room might be different from the standard rooms. Everything, from the refrigerator to the television, seemed to be new. The closet and luggage stand gave us more than enough room to spread out. The bathroom was clean and bright, but maybe some more table space to put toiletries would be an improvement.
The lobby is just as pleasant as the room. There are several tables and lots of sofa-style seating. The lobby has a free-to-use laptop, iPad and gaming console (Playstation, I think). And during the day there is FREE lemonade! Wi-fi is very fast and we had a strong signal everywhere we went inside the building.
Breakfast was very good, too. Excellent selection of food and modern presentation. And there are bottles of champagne, chilled on ice, as part of the breakfast buffet!
The location is actually quite convenient. It's about a 10-minute walk to a tram and subway station. From the subway station, it's another 10-15 minute ride to almost anywhere in downtown Budapest. And it's literally a 5 minute walk from Bo18 Hotel Superior to a very modern, Western-style shopping mall.
But as I mentioned earlier in the review, though the hotel was impressive on its own, it was the service that really made the stay so memorable. The staff at reception was extremely polite, patient and friendly to all of our questions. They went the extra mile to assist us book taxis, recommend places to go and make us feel comfortable. I would like to especially thank Mr Daniel and Ms Timi at the front desk, both of whom really did an excellent job with welcoming us and helping us to enjoy our stay! (I hope that I spelled their names correctly!)
