I loved this hotel. It is within walking distance of the chain bridge and other central Budapest locations. Don't be put off by the check in experience. I was slightly skeptical at first because the folks at reception were rather abrupt at check in and there were no bell staff around to help with my bags. I guess they were just busy somewhere else at the time, because everything turned out well in the end. Bell staff helpful with directions for transit. Room service outstanding. Upon checkout, the reception and concierge staff were extremely helpful and caring in contacting my tour operator so they could locate me. Hotel is in great condition. Decent sized room for Europe, and the lobby decor was inviting. I would stay here again.
By far, some of the best service ever at a European hotel. Staff went out of their way to help with everything, in advance and after arrival. Very clean and nice place. Good breakfast. Big rooms and very nice bathroom. Only one minor complaint - pillows in the room were old and needed to be replaced. They gave me a new pillow when I asked.
Pleasantly surprised; nice sized apartments, great kitchen with fridge/freezer and oven for making your own food. Beds slightly on the firm side but sill good enough for a couple of nights stay.
'Backpackers' bar a couple of stops down; not too noisy at night and offered good value drinks
Staff more than willing to help out; arranging things to do, transport etc
Housekeeping every other day but new towels delivered quickly if requested.
Free access to pool and gym an added bonus
Dvd player in apartment (even had a few English dvds - don't know if they had just been left before)
This hotel is in a well-presented part of Pest, from where a lot is in easy walking distance, including lots of eateries and places of interest, Museum, churches, Market and riverboat cruises and the excellent Rudas Baths is just over the river ..
"15 minute walk up to Castle Hill Hilton saves $140"
Every bit as good or better than Castle Hill Hilton unless the view is worth $150 more per day. My daughter stayed at the Hilton, so I could compare it. I think the room was as good, the staff was courteous and helpful...just didn't wear the fancy uniforms, and the complementary breakfast might have been better.
