Excellent location and great breakfast. Concierge staff excellent, we needed to get a taxi to the country and she ordered the taxi then came out to talk to the drive to ensure he new where to take us.
Check in staff not very welcoming, in fact he was on the phone for some of the process, didn't offer any information about the hotel, breakfast times etc. Only one pair of slippers in the room and two towels for a Twin room, called housekeeping to ask for more items to be brought to the room, an hour later they still hadn't brought them so had to call again. Next day no towels in room as they had run out, left a note in room to say they would be delivered but they never did. Obviously don't cope well if the hotel is full.
Terrific location, right next to Chain Bridge and less than a 5-minute walk to the edge of the main square. Gorgeous views of Castle Hill as soon as you walk outside. Easy walk to the bridge and funicular starting point.
The room had absolutely no view; it just looked out onto other rooms.
The concierge was not professional, not that friendly and tried to send us to the places she is getting higher commission from. It was very unpleasant experience. We had to go to the next door hotels to get the info we needed. I think that 5 stars hotel can do much better in giving its guests an accurate info.
Breakfast and location
location, view, fresh fruit at breakfast staff attitude, concierge service (great help with train booking) swimming pool, business centre facility
smoking in the bar loss of upstairs piano bar since last visit about 2004 too much salt used in cooking e.g we couldn't eat the bacon
The stay was friendly and willing to help you to find your away around Budapest from transportation, restraurants, and night life.
Great place would go back prefect location
