Very good service at a very good price. We traveled with our daughter and they even prepared for us a bed for kids. Another plus was the Travel Magazine in our language.

We had a delightful 5-day stay in this hotel, which overlooked the two halves of Budapest - Buda and Pest! It is set up in the hills in a beautiful residential area, but, the bus stop into the city was a 5minute walk to the main road, and the buses were very frequent, so getting around was not a problem....

I stayed here for 3 days at the beginning of my trip, then returned later for another week to use it as a home base while I did day trips to other cities around Budapest. I really loved this place.
