            We have stayed in this Hotel in 2015,for 7 nights, Obviously we liked it,that's was the reason we went back in 2016 again for 7 nights,in a first instance we were very satisfied with all except of the Hotel.,bedroom,breakfast.service in a nutshell with everything.

            Second visit unfortunately was not very successful.!I know we had to stay in our room bit more than we wanted to,due to the fact that my wife had to use a wheelchair (.Wich you kindly arranged for us) but sitting in our room we have noticed the dust wich covered lots of wood,and glasses,and that's really started to annoy us. We are looking for our next visit to Budapest some how your hotel is not on our surch at this moment.LF

            New hotel, nice facilities, friendly staff

            Booked rate didn't include breakfast, and it was quite expensive if paid separately. An hotel of this category should include it by default.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The ambience, live Piano music, your coffee lounge, comfortable room and also the shower. 5 star all the way through. Keep up the good work!

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            The hotel is stylish. Rooms are not very big but are luxerious and cleverly designed. Lots of storage space, a big safe and a mini bar. The breakfast buffet is fantastic.

            The room doors close with quite some noise if you do not prevent that yourself. This causes a lot of irritation when people do not care in a neighboring room. Especially at night the slamming of doors will wake you up! I have stayed twice in this hotel and had twice issues with this kind of noise (at night). Something should be changed in the way the doors close.

            The hotel is spotless with many of the original features restored. The decor is modern and the bedroom was beautiful. All members of staff without exception were very helpful. This trip was to celebrate my sisters 50th birthday and the hotel provided complimentary champagne and basket of fruit which was a lovely touch. I was so impressed with the hotel and city that I am returning in September with my husband and friends!

            Very nice hotel , new , clean , quiet and good location .

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            The reception staff were really friendly and always willing to help.

            we didn't like the fact that the standard bedroom was really small-it was so difficult to get around by the end of the bed.we also think that in a 4star hotel there should be tea/coffee making facility.

            breakfast excellent. lobby fine. hotel Zara location not the expected one but more convenient for the station.

            10.0

            Friendly, helpful staff particlularly the young lady in the Gallery Bar (always, serving everybody with a smile). The rooms were spacious, clean and air conditioned (especially welcome as the week we stayed had particularly hot weather for that time of the year).Location was excellent and only a ten minute stroll to the Danube and other main attractions. The selection of food at the buffet breakfast was extensive and very tasty. You could eat as much as you wanted and it set you up for a busy days sightseeing. Would definitely recommend it to others. There were a few conferences on at the Hotel during our stay but they did not affect the personal attention given by all the staff to all guests.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Located on the Pest side, a 10-15 minute walk from the central shopping area (Vaci, Fashion, the market, etc) More importantly right beside an Underground station. This is a perfect place to base your self for a few days in Budapest. The staff are some of the best I've met in a large hotel. Each one friendly, knowledgable, approachable. The breakfast is wonderful and will cater for anyone's preferance. Rooms are clean and a decent size. The bathroom is spotless and modern. The double bed is huge, comfortable and has the curious continental thing of 2 separate smaller duvets - the guy will love it.

            A pleasant surprise. Very modern & classy,Very reasonably priced and conveniently situated within walking distance to hop on/off bus and shopping. Short 5 min drive to Keleti train station. Araz restaurant also very reasonable prices and excellant choice of meals.

            I biiked the hotel for my parent's 45th annyversary. I was looking for something central so they wont need to walk much and still feel close to everything, I wanted something classic but also warm and friendly, and yes- average price- not too high and not too budgety. This hotel was much more than what I expected! Not only did all I wanted above became possible, but also the hotel's manager and his staff left a little surprise with a very nice letter to my parents in their room congratulating them on their annyversary :). the staff was very helpfull and wellcoming and the place is very central and yet very quiet. Rooms clean and nicely decorated and abpve all the price is afordable. I would deffenetly plan on going there next time for my own vacation!

            Beautifull Dinning Room & Entrance Hall. Good size rooms, Friendly staff

            Not a very nice 20 -25min walk to thr river. Breakfast was okay, but could have been a better selection of hot food

          • Couple
            6.6

            Nice decoration and building, good room size (deluxe), good restaurant, personnel was helpful

            At breakfast, coffee is not served at the table, one has to take it from an automatic coffee machine, with a waiting queue. One morning, the towels which were put on the floor to be changed were folded and put back unwashed! The price of the massage facilities is twice the price in the local thermes.
