We stayed two nights in a junior suite. To our surprise, the suite was large, well appointed and had a great view. The TVs were the old CRT but nevertheless did the job. The reception staff were very courteous and helpful. House keeper - very good.
Good directions are required to get to the hotel from Keleti train station. We arrived at the station in a downpour at night and although the hotel is only 500 yards away, you can't see it in the dark. For starters, the hotel should light up their Best Western sign. However, when you exit the station at the main exit on the West side, you can't miss the Burger King sign at your 1 o'clock position. Head towards that and keep going West. You are going in the right direction. You will cross under an underpass. Look up, you are there.
Our only complaint and the reason I didn't give the hotel 5 stars is the lousy internet. Unlike the other Best Westerns we have stayed at in the last 10 days, they have a 3rd party provider. Every time you cease a session, which is slow, you have to go thru the procedure of logging in and it is a slow and frustrating procedure. For a hotel that caters to tour buses etc., getting fast and reliable internet should be a priority. Dump wires.hu. Fix the internet and we will be back next time in Budapest.
