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

  • 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?

Hidden Treasure

The hotel is beautiful, the moment you walk the the revolving doors a gorgeous aroma of scent catches your attention along with the wonderful decor & detail, particularly the arched ceiling. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We were given an upgrade to a superior room & our friends also which was a lovely touch. The rooms had very large beds & the shower was amazing, everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. In the evening we sat in the piano bar & relaxed to the beautiful music played by the pianist. The hotel is in a great location for the ruin bars, cafes, trams etc... I only had one little quibble, and that was a dirty mark in one of the sheets but I wouldn’t let that effect my review. We loved the hotel. We had a late flight & had to check out at 12pm, we were all very impressed that they allowed us to use the hotel facilities for the rest of the day ( spa & rooftop pool) which was fabulous by the way & a massive bonus because we didn’t fancy walking around the city all day in 30 degree heat before traveling home. I will recommend it to others & wouldn’t hesitate to return :)

Nice hotel

Very nice hotel, located few minutes walking from a metro station. Great breakfast with a lot of choice. Small rooms and bathroom but well decorated and clean. The beds in the twin beds room are quite small so not convenient for children (or adults) moving a lot during the night. My daughter fell during the night.
There’s a jacuzzi and 2 small swimming pools on the roof which were quite nice to have since it was 30 degrees outside.
Nice and helpful staff.

Great location and hotel

Stayed here for 4 nights and was very impressed with the hotel. Clean and in a very good location to walk to the river and be in the middle of excellent bars and restaurants. The pool area is lovely but busy. You don’t have to pay for towels as mentioned in previous posts. Our room want on the Main Street so was very quiet. Reception are outstanding and incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The only reason why it’s not 5 stars is the room towels. On arrival we only had one large towel and 2 small. We asked at reception and they quickly provided us with more. The next day we put the hand towels out to be changed and they were taken but not replaced - so again we had to go to reception to ask again. Not horrendous - but a bit of a pain when you’re in the bathroom and realise you’ve got to share a towel to dry yourself!!
