I have just come back from Budapest, where I stayed in the newly refurbished MGallery Hotel Nemzeti and I must say I was very impressed with this luxury boutique hotel. I am a lover of art and culture and this hotel has it all.
A very unique and beautiful interior, which mixes very modern design with the original late 19th century interior. The walls of the reception areas are hung with original contemporary art and I felt like I was in an exclusive gallery, with all the comforts of home close at hand. The attentive staff were very polite and friendly. I was also pleasantly surprised about how knowledgeable they were when I asked about the history of the hotel. They were able to recount some interesting and colourful stories from the days when the hotel served actors and artists from the National Theatre, which used to stand opposite.
The room I stayed in was very chic and well designed with all the facities I expected and the bed was very comfortable. I stayed for 2 nights and even though it was cold and busy outside, inside the hotel was an oasis of calm and warmth. A real home from home.
Also the food was a real treat. In the UK we only perhaps know that goulash comes from Hungary, but there was so much more on offer here. I got a real taste of Hungary from the meats, cheeses and wines available. Everything was fresh and obviously prepared with great passion and attention to detail. A real luxury treat.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel as providing a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable stay. The location is great - it is right in the heart of the city, close to the museums and the Opera.
It's the sort of hotel where you feel appreciated and contented and end up walking around with a big smile on your face.
