We booked this hotel to spend new years eve in Budapest.The location is very good.but we were however disappointed with the hotel. Although the public areas were well maintained and welcoming we were unable to use them due to a private party taking over what appeared to be the entire ground floor, which we were not made aware of until after we had arrived.
the suite (Room 7) was furnished with turn of the century period furniture but lacked any confortable seating area which meant the only place to relax was on the bed. The air conditioning did not function properly and the room was unbearably hot. Our room overlooked the cobbled street which made it too noisy to open the windows.
Altough the bathroom appeared to have been renovated fixtures and fittings were well worn and had not been replaced which included the rusty towel rail/ radiator, shabby hand rails on the bath and a small travel hairdryer that we had assumed had been left by the previous guest.
Although the staff were friendly and helpful the hotel does not warrant a 5 star rating. Living in Hungary we are well aware of many better quality hotels in Budapest. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel we recommend you find somewhere different.
