Travelled here for my girlfriends 30th Birthday. It was a surprise trip.
At first glance it was very out of the way and looked to be in a run down neighbourhood (graffiti on a large concrete underpass) and unlit roads...
Upon check in we discovered there is no "in room safe" , you need to have over your valuables to reception and put them in an envelope (not very good when we was planning on putting in playbooks / iphones and passports e.t.c).
Then we got to our room, It was a very hot May (28'C) to discover there was no air-conditioning as described, but a little fan above the lowered ceiling. Despite multiple requests the fan was never turned on.
Also despite requesting a double room we was given 2 single beds.
None the less it was somewhere quiet with a bed , shower and a very worn towel to rest your head.
Breakfast we wasn't expecting much, and by all accounts we didn't get much, but there was eggs (very salty) bologney, salami and bread and jams! So we never left the hotel hungry in the mornings...
It is situated about 40-50mins away from Budapest Centre.
To get into town from the hotel
-Walk to the bus stop heading west called "papirgyar"
-Get a bus to Szent Imre ter.
-Get a Tram Boraras Ter
-We brought "The Budapest Card" which was unlimted travel (it includes buses , trams, trains and even boats!) and discounts on a whole bunch of places and even included free entry to the budapest museum and even free entry to Szt Lukacs Gyogyfurdo es Uszoda spa!!!
All in all was very nice and 4,500 forint each.
If you are struggling for somewhere to eat try Trofea Grill Etterem.
The closest I suppose in the UK would be a Harvester, but instead it is a buffet style restaraunt. With ALL YOU CAN EAT, and not only that ALL YOU CAN DRINK!!!
Includes tea/coffee/beer/wine and champaign!! from 3200ft>4999ft depending on the day of the week and time of the day. Well worth going to!
