Super friendly people - service
Staff was very helpful and pleasant
Little touches would make a huge difference in this hotel. For example, the contential breakfast is so basic that we augmented with fruit from a stand across the street. No credit card facilities.
Very convenient to the sights. Quiet
Air conditioner was still a problem. Even on a cool day the room was unbearably hot. I found the units filter was completely clogged with dirt. When I removed it the room cooled some. I showed them this and perhaps they will check the other rooms. The hotel name is not noticable from a car. Look for the sign with the logo, or park and walk. Look for 4x10 cm brass plaque near the door
The location was perfect for us. Everything was very clean and new, and the staff were warm and obliging.
The air conditioner was too weak and the room was suffocating.
Good location in Szentendre (essentially a suburb of Budapest). While Szentendre is overly commercialized and expensive (compared to most of Hungary and even Budapest) it was easy to get around in and user friendly for our 19 and 22 year olds who struck out on their own during the day and evening. Staff was friendly, although not always competitent (they thought we were leaving a day earlier than we had actually reserved, which was worked out ok in the end).
Our rooms were stuffy and hot. Air conditioning was not effective (we were there in August when it was VERY hot). No wireless internet for some reason. Breakfast was just minimally okay.
