I booked this hotel because I didn't want the hassle of lugging my luggage around after hopping off the train in Budapest. It's literally (and slightly diagonally) across the road from the main train station. However, there are building/construction works around the station at this time so you'll most likely exit the train station on the left hand side, and you would walk around to the front and then cross the road. (A side note: Google Maps somehow took into consideration the construction works, and actually showed me the path to take. So just double check beforehand.) Look for the green sign with white writing. When you enter the building, there is a security guard there and you will take the lift to the 5th floor to reach the hotel's reception.
Fast food joints, supermarkets, a currency change place are close by. The area is slightly dodgy at night as there were homeless people, and men lurking around. That said, being a girl and travelling on my own, it wasn't too bad for me when making my way back to the hotel; just don't talk to anyone and keep looking straight ahead :)
The hotel itself is adequate. Nice and helpful staff. Clean rooms - although my bathroom needed some refurnishing as there were cracks in the tiles. A good selection of food at breakfast. Good wi-fi reception. I got a reasonable last minute deal so I paid 48 Euros per night. One minor comment is that when I made the booking, I was asked to select whether I wanted twin beds or a double bed. I chose a double bed. However, it turned out to be twin beds pushed together - which is apparently common in Europe. But this was not a huge bother to me.
I would stay here again purely based on location, and provided I can get a cheap deal.
