The hotel is large. It is along the main avenue of the Pest side. There are many shops and a couple of churches around but the vicinity appears a little seedy at night.
They have 2 lobbies---the main lobby is small but elegant whereas a second larger, less fancy one in the rear is used for group check-ins. There are several shops in the hotel that sell nice souvenirs ranging from the cheap and kitschy to finely crafted jewelry and local goods. Ask for a room with a view of the main street!!! We had the misfortune of staying in a room that had a view of a mini "courtyard" that was drab and dirty. (Seriously, couldn't they have transformed it into a little oasis or indoor garden with water fountains for better aesthetics?) The rooms, though spacious, had beds that were TINY-- good enough for a 5-foot tall Asian but undoubtedly uncomfortable for taller, bigger people. The bathrooms are small but clean. Each room is also equipped with many brochures and a couple of books on Budapest's history, the various sights to see and activities to do. They were very helpful!
The corridors were rather dimly lit and there were a couple of unsettling prints/ paintings hung on the walls.
There aren't many food choices at breakfast but the food is satisfactory. The buffet dinner was a different matter. Though simple in presentation, the food was superb in taste!
Throughout our stay, we encountered some staff that manged to smile but generally, the staff came off as unfriendly and unhappy.
