I spent three days at the Buda Gold Hotel.
To summarise, comfortable hotel, with an efficient polite staff.
Polite, professional staff. Patiently answered any questions I had.
The lady during the daytime at the front desk should be singled out.
I thought breakfast was finished at 9 am so getting up late I didn't bother to go down.
She nice enough to call me at 9:55 and tell me that breakfast finished at 10 and I could run down if I wanted.
In addition the soap dispenser on the sink didn't work. I figured the cleaning staff would figure it out the next day. They didn't
so when I called down, she was upstairs in less than a minute with a new one. Management should be aware of how professional, useful and polite she is.
Nice location, very green. The Parliament or Budapest Castle are both about five minutes away by taxi with out traffic. There is a local bus that will take you directly there as well.
Breakfast was decent. I never saw any fruit but I always arrived at the last minute so it may have finished. Juice dispenser is too slow. They're better off with a mug.
Convenience stores nearby.
Bank across the street if you need to get money.
Extremely cost friendly and breakfast was included. My basic bill was 230 dollars for three nights.
However, this was April.
Not really near the action in terms of walking. But the bus is cheap. But I was pressed for time and never bothered. I took a tax which was usually 7 to 10
dollars to the Parliament building.
You can actually walk to the Buda Castle which should take about 25 minutes. From there it's about another ten minutes to Parliament.
No room service during the day. No food other than breakfast. However, you can to reception and get a coffee from their machine.
Fridge could have some edibles, eg., nuts, chocolate, etc.
The liquid soap and the bar were not really of good quality. The bar was small and cheap looking and the soap in general wasn't soapy enough. When you're
used to a good quality soap, you can tell the difference.
My fan stopped working for about an hour. I was told the room had to get down to 20 degrees. But then it started working after an hour at 23 degrees and continued
for the rest of the night above 20. Thank God it did eventually work. The room was warm and the poor fellow was clueless as to why, thus the half baked excuse.
To summarise, I enjoyed my time there. I would certainly consider this hotel if I had to return.
