"Lovely central hotel on the Buda side of the river"
Lovely hotel with all required amenities on the quieter Buda side of the Danube. Close to tram line (19 or 41), main road and bus routes around town. Large room with shower and bath ensuite, hair drier, tea and coffee making facilities, comfy double bed, TV with freeview channels, minibar and safe.
Hotel staff were friendly and accommodated all requests, speaking numerous languages, providing extra towels, tea/coffee/creamers and very knowledgeable about the area, offering advice when needed.
Had the breakfast one morning, unlimited hot/cold drinks, continental style foods plus eggs made to order and even bacon when requested, everything needed to fill you up for the morning's exploring.
Two thermal spa's close by plus the funincular for easy access up to the Buda Castle complex (or take bus 16 up the hill). Relatively short walk to either the Szchezny or Liberty bridge for access to the Pest side. All in all, I found the hotel to be a good base for exploring the city.
When you are looking for it, there is not hotel sign, just the Old Monarchia restaurant below it. Just look for the restaurant & go inside there. Apparently they book the rooms. The room was nice if you're just using it as a home base. But the location is awesome, they have wifi (wasn't working during my visit.) Now it's not 5 star, but it is nice & affordable & I would recommend it!!

Staff were excellent, spoke English, were willing to let us borrow the printer for boarding passes, umbrella, wine opener etc. Breakfast included was great, lots of variety, available 7-10. Clean rooms, great mini bar selection. Conjoining rooms available. Location right downtown above all if the shops and restaurants! Definately would recommend this accommodation.
