Let me begin by saying that the staff was excellent. I arrived late at night and the hotel was already locked. I rang the bell and the hotel clerk let me in. It was good to know that the entrance to the hotel was secure. The clerk was pleasant and helpful despite the fact that it was 1:00 a.m. When I got to the room, I was surprised that I had been given a large suite; a small room with one twin bed and a larger room with two twin beds. I assumed that the hotel was not busy and therefore I was upgraded.
The room was clean, but really needs updating. The carpeting was clean but a threadbare and in some places you could see it was repaired. As in most 3-star Budapest hotels, there are no amenities in the bathroom except for the soap dispenser which dispenses the same soap for your body and for shampoo. The lighting was poor and I had to use my phone flashlight in order to have enough light to read at night.
I chose the hotel because I had an event in the 11th District and this hotel was very close to where the event was taking place. My children live in Budapest so I visit very often but this was the first time I was in that particular neighborhood. It was a 15-20 minute walk to the numbers 4 and 6 trams, and to the main street. For a tourist, it is just a little bit out of the way for the major tourist sites. Breakfast was disappointing, with little variety and not much imagination compared with other 3-star hotels.
