We have just spent 4 nights at the hotel and loved it. The reception staff were very helpful, the room overlooking the central courtyard was very clean, spacious and quiet (could still hear the Basilica bells in the morning though!) We requested a room with a shower before we arrived and this was granted (it was a really good shower too), and we asked for extra pillows as there was only one each provided. The location is fantastic, central to everything. We didn't buy the wifi in the hotel as there are plenty of bars and restaurants with free wifi. The breakfast was fine, though, like other reviewers would have liked a toaster as the hot breakfasts on some morning weren't to our taste. There were lots of other things to chose from though.
Would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely use again.

The hotel is in the perfect location right beside the Basilica on a pedestrian street. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. Close to subway. Nice safe location. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

However, location aside, the hotel room is in need of a facelift. The bed linens are old and thin, the towels are worn, the pillows are almost non-existent, old tube TV, and very poor lighting in the room. One of the oddest things is the selection of pictures in the hotel.

The breakfast is held in the basement and was a nice cold buffet with a couple of hot items. The hot items were not appealing, but there was enough for a filling breakfast.

The room was a good value, particularly for the location. But would be willing to pay more if they updated the rooms.

We arrived by Taxi from the airport, this had been booked for us by the hotel and the same guy took us on return trip ( 11000 HUF ) each way.
Check in very good, staff spoke good english and were very helpful in giving advice and maps.
Rooms were very clean and of a good standard, beds were so low to the floor it was difficult to stand up when getting out of bed.
Bathroom, well in 2014 who would expect to use a hand held shower whilst a small fixing would have got it on the wall and made life better.
Towels in the bath room were of poor quality ( PAPER THIN ) and almost see through, so work to do Basilica.
Location good all sights just a walk away, lots of resturants bars, try the one oppersite the hotel.
A good trip, and we all enjoyed it

A very good location for a vacation traveler; close to subway, major sights, and dining options. Front desk staff go to great lengths to be helpful and providing guidance and assistance, in my case onward rail reservations on a busy holiday weekend. The rooms were of a decent size, but seem to need sprucing up-chipped paint and scratched furniture. The bed and bath linens were well passed their time with frayed edges and a few small holes. Breakfast while adequate was not as good as other experienced on this trip.

Room Tip: The rooms that face the central atrium are quieter than those facing the street,but the air circulat...

One could not ask for a better location. The staff was very patient and helpful with all of our questions. Recommendations that the staff made were also very good. Rooms are quiet and clean. Breakfast was a great added value.

A good but basic hotel in a very good central location. Exceptionally clean, good breakfast. Comfortable bed, but sheet not big enough for bed. Pillows and towels very thin. Close to tour buses, trams and Danube.
