I stayed here for 4 nights during a business trip. The hotel is located in a very nice place, with the great view of Parliament building, which is the most glamorous building in Budapest. It takes 40 minutes by taxi from the airport to reach the hotel and you pay around 30 euros. It is a 2 min walking to the metro, bus stops, and also hop-on hop-off busses so it was great. There are also some nice restaurants in that area where you can have a dinner. Beware that it is not in the city center and not close to touristic attractions at all. You need to take a bus or tram, or you can take a nice walk near the riverside (takes 20-30 minutes).
The staff was welcoming and helpful. As happens in many hotels, my room card (which is also used for the elevator) was not working sometimes because I put it near my cell phone, and they fixed it quickly when I asked. Breakfast was very good, many varieties and good view in the restaurant. But it was the same every morning.
The room was clean and large enough. Nevertheless, the pillows had a strange smell although they seemed clean. I checked them all, and they all had the same smell so I assumed it was the smell of their cleaner, but it honestly smelled like dirty hair and was disgusting.
The room had a desk and a chair, and a small sofa. The toilet and the bathroom were separated. There was a sliding door for the bathroom, which stuck all the time. It was getting on my nerves, so I left it open! It was not exactly meeting my expectations as I paid 110 euros for one night. The stuff helped me call a taxi to the office every morning, and to the airport. They had an agreement with some taxis, which were more comfy and had better drivers than the normal ones. Overall it was not value for that money, unless you like to pay for the city view instead of comfort.
