“Great Hotel with great price”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

Do you REALLY want to enjoy BUDAPEST with its best luxury shopping street named Andrássy..then do not miss the HOTEL just two streets behind it! Sugar! candy shop is a MUST for families.

Hotel is cosy, bed comfy, staff is friendly, location and the price is great!
You can even have 10% off from ARMANI!!
Snacks and drinks free all day!

This hotel was in a good location in the city centre also the room was ok and clean, the staff were helpful apart from the kitchen staff, maybe they had a bad day. Before i booked this hotel i read one of the review on tripadvisor saying that the hotel does not provide any toiletries so i emailed the hotel and they got back to me promptly with all the facility list so i found that very helpful. Also the price was very reasonable. However This hotel is as stated 4* but really i will give it less than that. This hotel had coffee vending machine for breakfast which was not tasty and just warm not hot. It was very disappointed to see the quality of coffee or tea so bad like that. Also the TV channel were not a quality of 4* hotels, there were like only 6 channels and 2 of them only in English and they were only news. Furthermore there was a sauna which is a bonus however they don't provide bath rope which makes it tricky to use it.

Hotel Ambra is overall a nice hotel. It's location is very central with less than a 5 minute walk to the nearest Metro station (Opera, M1), or less than 10 minutes to the greater hub (Deak Ter, M1, M2, M3).

The staff was overall helpful and friendly. However, the restaurant staff didn't always seem to be 'in control' when organizing breakfast. (E.g.: on several occasions I had to notify the staff that the heater for the scrambled eggs had gone out and the food had gone cold.) They didn't always pay the best attention to such details.
Breakfast was okay, but of a bit less quality and choice than I'm used to from 4* hotels.

The room was quite spacy but also a bit modest. It had basic furniture but wasn't really luxurious. The bathroom was very nice: spacious and clean, but also a bit modest.

Overall a very nice hotel but with some rough edges. But maybe that's normal for a hotel that's relatively small. And, it's reflected in the cheap price anyway so still this hotel is a pretty good deal!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that's not on the top floor. Our top room floor was okay but you might be bothere...

We booked this hotel as a 'secret hotel' for 1 night and was so happy with it, we ended up staying 3 nights in total. The best thing about this hotel is the great service that the staff provides. All staff we had contact with were extremely helpful and happy to provide recommendations and travel tips. It's also within walking distance to restaurant areas and many tourist attractions, while being in a quiet part of the city.

Very helpful staff, amazing breakfast, really clean hotel and en suite bathroom was very clean and large. Bedrooms were also very big with lots of wardrobe space. There are no toiletries whatsoever supplied so bring your own soap and shampoos, I did expect considering it was a 4 star but its just to let future guests know. There is free wifi in the hotel rooms if you bring your laptop. Very quiet hotel and within walking distance of almost everything! Really good location, well worth the money to stay there.
