After some research on the net we've chosen this hotel for one night only since we had to stay in Budapest a few weeks ago.
We were delighted with the choice , since we really wanted to use their SPA and everything was nice starting with the reception ( quick check-in with a reservation on booking.com) , the room ( quite spacious and very clean, good range of TV-channels) continuing with the SPA ( quite compact but everything you might need for a short and relaxed break) and finishing with the restaurant which I highly recommend !
Another nice thing to mention was the kindness of the staff which allowed us to use the SPA facilities even after the closing time ( 21 o'clock) because we arrived quite late and had no problem with us using the facilities again in the morning after breakfast :D and thus checking-out a bit later, at noon.
The restaurant is very nicely decorated, not very big , the food quality is excellent and the price range I would say is medium : about 30 euros for two main dishes with goose-leg and different garnishes ( extremely yummy! ) , mineral water and draft beer .

At about 60 euros per room with buffet breakfast , free parking and (good-enough for our needs ) location, I feel that we made the best possible choice so we highly recommend it and would return if we need accommodation in Budapest !

Room Tip: You might have a problem with the bedding, but I guess that you can ask them to remove the plastic-l...

This hotel is one of the best from Budapest, I stay in many times there from 2005 to 2013 and never was disappointed. Free parking, place for children games outdoor, very good breakfast, big rooms and decorated with good taste and very quiet location.

Room Tip: room with balcony from back-side

The hotel is located in a nice residential area, relatively close to a subway station( Mexikoi). The room was very nice, clean, fitted with everything you need. Breakfast is served in the hotel's restaurant and it's very good. We ate there in the evening, too, but on the terrace! Great food and excelent view of the little garden behind the hotel.
Parking is free.
We lovesc this hotel and I will recommend it to anyone who wants to Travel to Budapest.

Although the hotel is 3*S category, it is very cosy, has nice rooms, wonderfull garden with pond and plants, two cats will welcome you, cars are safe on the parking, stuff is very helpful, food is excellent! Owners of the hotel are present all the time and they can help you with anything you might need. Prices are moderate and all friends who accepted my recommendation were amazed what they got for the price.

Szonyi hotel is a real hidden gem in Pest. Quiet, clean room, helpful staff, good breakfast. All our requests were immediately taken into consideration (we asked for an extra towel and blanket).
The staff understands English and is helpful in anything you need - including calling places in Budapest for you when you need help - we asked them to call the shuttle company and check whether the shuttle was coming on time - and they did, immediately.

In the hotel there is spa area including jacuzzi, salt room, sauna - everything in great condition! All of those open till 21:00 - which is very convenient when you get back from a long day in Budapest.

The hotel is situated 1.2 km from metro and it's the only disadvantage I can think of. If you're in shape and don't mind walking a bit - it's not a problem (the metro comes every 30-60 seconds, very efficient!)

Overall - a great and relatively not expensive hotel - great value for money! Recommended!

I was in Budapest for a weekend in February and it was good. The location was perfect approximately 15 minutes walk to the station. The room was really small since I was alone during the travel it wasn’t too bad. Overall the value wasn’t bad, but I would look and see if there is anything better before checking in.

This is a very nice place.
The neighborhood was all quiet, the property is clean and well maintained. The free parking at the property's back yard is wonderful, no stress for parking fees. The hotel is very well connected, after a few hundred meters of drive you're on one of the major boulevards of the city.
The restaurant is small and elegant, food choices for breakfast were more than enough.
Room is quite big, nice view and it has a balcony , too. That can be an advantage when weather is more friendly then it was some days ago.
Internet is working, there is cable Tv with many foreign channels (News, sports, children).
Overall was a very nice experience, for sure I'll add it to my favorite list.

Room Tip: I assume a room looking towards the backyard is more convenient because of the view.
