What We Love

  • Restaurant serving tasty French-meets-Hungarian cuisine
  • Attention to historic details combined with modern design sensibility
  • The charming café in the gallery above the lobby
  • The density of rom kerts (ruin pubs) in the immediate vicinity
  • Read about where to eat and drink in Budapest

What To Know

  • Two-night minimum stay is required for all rooms except the Executive Suite
  • Central location means that plenty of bars and restaurants are steps away, but street noise is sometimes audible
  • The rooftop pool is closed during winter months?
  • The neighbourhood is still a work in progress, so if you need a spit and polished location, this might not be the one for you?
  • Rooms are located in two buildings; the “spa” building has extra-high ceilings?
  • Valet parking £16 per night

Beautiful hotel and excellent staff.
Reviewed 1 day ago

Excellent experience at this beautiful hotel in a great location. The service was great, room pretty small, but clean and met our needs. Staff here are very kind and friendly. I would highly recommended this hotel and would most definitely return. The hotel is a short walk from St Stephen’s basilica and close to all means of public transport. There are numerous restaurants just a short walk away, making this a great location to stay. I didt use the spa etc, however, I did pay a visit and the facilities look excellent. All in all this was a great find in an amazing city.

Fantastic hotel

My husband and I have just returned from a long weekend in Budapest.

This hotel is probably the best I have ever stayed at in Europe on a city break. Spacious room, huge bed, gorgeous bathroom and wonderful shower. Friendly staff, lovely breakfast and little touches like chocolates and the weather forecast delivered each evening.

It was our wedding anniversary whilst away and we were even gifted with a bottle of fizz from the manager.

Book this wonderful hotel. You won’t be disappointed!

Great location, great price

Budapest is one of my favourite cities and this hotel was a great base from which to explore. It's in a great location near lots of restaurants and bars but is also quiet. Rooms are modern, clean and a good size. Rates are excellent and staff helpful.

We enjoyed our stay!

Arrived at the hotel friday afternoon. Gut upgraded to a deluxe-room free of charge since we are Expedia Elite-member. Got a nice room on the 4th floor with a nice view over the courtyard. Letter from the hotel mananger and homemade chocolate.


The room was of great size, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was big and nice.


The breakfast was quite big and they have a large variety of food and drinks - both hot and cold. More than enough to get your day started. Only negative remark is that they sometimes start to clear the food before 10:30.

Nothing was any trouble at this hotel. You need an iron? They will bring it to your room. Need extra towels? No problem. And always done with a smile! :)

The only issue was that housekeeping on the last day (we wanted to sleep a bit longer) made horrible noise outside in the hallway when cleaning other rooms. Talking, banging doors, vacuum-cleaning. I think housekeeping should be more quiet in the morning. They woke us up at 8 because of all the noise. Reported this to reception upon check-out.

We are probably going back to Budapest in september, and if the price is right . we would stay here again!

Weekend Break
Reviewed 5 days ago

The hotel is in a very good location and close to all bars and restaurants. Although the spa is small it is lovely for relaxation. The room was very tidy and clean, however the sheets are two singles on a king size bed and are quite thin. It was never overly warm and had to sleep in a jumper. Also we didn’t get a lay in past 8:00am as they seemed to have the builders doing a complete make over on our floor and therefore there were drills and banging. The reception staff were polite and there was no issues with checking in on a late flight. Overall it was a pleasant stay and would go back.
