Into Asian motifs? As far as location & service, this place can't be beat. You are right smack in the heart of hearts of Budapest. Any direction from the hotel is a destination. The most convenient spot you can place a hotel. The service, in line with the Asian vibe, is extremely helpful - almost to the point of overwhelming. But the staff is relaxed enough to make you feel at ease. The rooms are quiet, huge and with very comfortable beds. The bathrooms are the best. It's basically a swanky downtown boutique hotel. I'm not sure I would call it high-end though (except for the bathrooms). The insistence on Asian (in particular Chinese) design feels cumbersome, and at times kitschy. Since some of the room furniture was sourced in China, the quality isn't top either (except the bathrooms, again). The rooms are really dark and if you have one of the duplexes the stairs may be a problem at night for older guests and those sampling the local wines. Eventually you find the switch that lights the stairs but until then it can be tricky. Save yourself the time and just ask the helpful staff to show you the lights. Also, the room-keys are these weird fobs with Chinese knots, too big to carry out so you leave them at the desk. Again, a bit of design over function maybe? Keycards are more convenient. Still, this place is fun and I can see it being a great romp for couples. That's who I'd recommend it to the most. It looks like the kind of place that gets bumping on the weekends (I was there during the week). Lots of bar space, restaurant space & large Cocktail menus. Think of it as a fun, Las- Vegas-type, Asian themed hotel in Budapest (sans gambling). Hats off to the staff again!

Room Tip: I stayed in a inside-facing duplex and it was very quiet. Helped me get over my jet-lag!

What a gem. This hotel gives 5 star quality and service at average prices. The interior design, location, staff amenities......you name it and all are superb. The electronic toilets have been the subject of many funny stories and hearty laughter.

Having seen reviews on here I had high expectations of the hotel, and was not disappointed. The bathroom was extremely luxurious (rainfall shower, heated toilet seat), great media system in the room. If you get breakfast as part of your deal, go for it as the food is great. Hot menu to order and extensive buffet. We went to the terrace bar and had amazin cocktails, which were about £4 each; maybe expensive for Budapest but cheap compared to London!
The location is great, a couple of minutes from the Danube, on the main pedestrianised shopping street and within walking distance of many of he main sights. About 15 mins walk from Gellert baths.
The staff were incredibly helpful and really made our stay. My partner and I are hoping to return in December and would definitely recommend the hotel to all!

Just returned from a 3 night break.
Arrived Thursday at about 12.30 and we were checked in to a superb room within minutes, although I don't place huge emphasis on my hotel room , as I tend to spend so little time in them, I must say it was impressive with a brilliant sound system, espresso machine and a weirdly good toilet!
The staff were great and Thomas recommended a superb restaurant in the actual ramparts of the Buda Castle( what a setting ) it was superb with quality food and wine and was really good value(£60 each with lots of wine!).
Breakfast in the hotel was good , decent continental selection and great eggs,pancakes etc. Location is superb 100 yds from Danube and at the edge of the main touristy shopping area, great terrace bar outside to come back to after a night out and sit in the heart of Budapest streets enjoying a beer or cocktail
Overall probably the best European city break hotel I've stayed in, book it you will love it

The other half and I booked a 3 night break here for our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived we were blown away! We arrived at just after noon on the Monday knowing we couldn't check in till 3pm but our room was ready and they let us in early. The decor was beautiful from the lobby right through to our room. It looked and felt exactly as described on their website! The beds were so comfortable, we booked a 'standard' room. They were extremely clean, lovely bathroom and great view from our balcony. The breakfast was buffet and a choice of a few hot dishes but beautifully cooked. A bit pricey to drink there in the evening but what do you expect? The only thing I will say, the spa is amazing (72€ for a full body stones massage) but be very very careful of the floor!! It's slippy when wet and I did fall which obviously hurt..... we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and will be returning!

Budah Bar hotel was centrally situated for easy walking of both Buda and Pest. Hotel room was fantastic and comfy, even had a balcony. Bathroom was large with waterfall shower and electronic loo!! Staff were incredibly helpful and attentive and amazed by the variety of languages they all spoke quite fluently. Treated myself to spa treatment at end of each day, again all the spa personnel were very friendly, professional and left each night totally blessed out. On quite a busy road but being used to living on major roads did not find noise to be an issue for me. Food was lovely to. In all a very enjoyable break.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room not overlooking the main road.
