I cannot recommend this hotel enough!
The staff at the hotel are all really courteous and knowledgable, and willing to help with any questions you might have about Budapest (no matter how big or small).
We stayed in a superior room on the 3rd floor and were a little worried after reading reviews here about having a road facing room. However, the windows are pretty sound proof, and unless you are a person who gets annoyed by a ticking clock, the road noise is not an issue. The room itself was a good size, very clean with decent sized bathroom and fantastic shower.
Although the hotel seems a little out of the way, we found it was only 10 minutes walk to the river, and 15 minutes walk to Hero's square near the main baths and Budapest Zoo. If you don't like walking there is a tram stop right outside the main doors, along with a bus stop and an M2 metro station. We found the location perfect as it allowed us to see the whole of the city easily and you'll never be far away from any of the main attractions. Just 5 mins walk towards the river direction were 2 Tesco express stores, and right opposite the hotel is a large spar - all sell fresh baked goods for around 150ft (about 35p) ideal if you're not having breakfast at the hotel.
All in all, a fantastic experience, and great value for money. We will be back :)
