Previous reviewers have found things to complain about with this hotel, but for value for money I thought it was fine. The room was warm and clean, with tea and coffee making things and a fridge. The beds looked as though they might be a bit hard, but were in fact very comfortable. The bathroom, though small was also very clean and warm and had a decent hairdryer in it. There is also a lift, The hotel does offer breakfast, but there is no bar. The only criticism I would have, and it is very minor, is that the hangers are wider than the wardrobe, so when I closed the door, the hangers sometimes fell off!
As for location, it is in very easy walking distance to the Gellert Baths and the Castle area, but places to eat and drink are mainly across the river. It took us about 20 minutes to walk over and find plenty of places to eat. So all in all, if you are looking for a good, clean base and don't mind walking a bit, or are happy to use the trams, then I would be happy to recommend it.
