I stayed here at the end of May with two friends for a few nights. The first thing to note about this hotel is that it is quite out of the way if you are looking to explore the city ... it's obviously not impossible and we did go in to the city everyday. You need to take the bus/tram from outside the market (which is about a 4 minute walk from the hotel) to the end of the line and then get on the metro. The bus/tram takes about 20 minutes and then the metro is really quick depending on what you want to see and where you want to go.
The rooms were pretty basic and the beds were quite hard. The cleanliness of the rooms I have to say was average not excellent. The bathroom was also really basic and I wasn't a fan of the shower (each to their own).
The restaurant (at breakfast only) I found was not varied but what they did have was nice. We didn't eat here in the evenings as we ate out in Budapest. There was a bar outside the hotel on a derelict bus but we didn't see if it opened or not as it looked under construction.
The swimming pool was quite big and looked great for a morning swim.
The staff were attentive and more than happy to help out as best they could.
Overall, if you are looking for basic accommodation and don't mind a bit of a trip on the tram to the metro then this hotel would be a good choice for you.
