This is a great hotel. We booked an executive room which included the lounge - definitely worth the extra. We were allowed to eat breakfast in the main dining room which had a better choice than the executive lounge. Spa was lovely although they wouldn't let us use it after checking out which is unusual in my experience. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. In all it is highly recomended.

The Mercure City Centre is in the perfect location (don't confuse with the Mercure Korona nearby) right on Vaci utica (walking street) in downtown Budapest. It's not a luxury hotel, but if you want to pay a more reasonable price, it is very good. The lobby and bar look very new and sleek. There are computer terminals you can use and you can print out boarding passes (or other things) at the bar.
My room was also very nice. The carpet in the room looked new and it was clean and had a nice bathroom. There is a safe and a mini bar in the room (and a nice looking TV which I never used). The walls were a little banged up, so I think perhaps they hadn't got to that point in the updating yet. The carpet in the hallway on my floor was old and stained, however, that's likely the least important thing to update.
The staff were all very helpful and gave accurate information, such as how to get to the airport and the approximate costs of various methods. When I decided to take a taxi, they arranged for a legitimate one with a meter (I lived in Hungary in the past and taxis were notoriously dishonest then. Not sure if it's improved overall, but the one the hotel arranged to take me to the airport was great and even cost slightly less than the hotel estimated.)
The only complaint I have is the free wifi was not very strong in my room and during certain times of day, I had to go down to the lobby/bar to use my devices.
