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!
