1. The view: I had the room with Danube River facing Parliament; 2. There is a back door that you can access (exit and enter) using your room key card. This leads you directly to the steps towards the Castle area. Near to the main Metro (Batthyany square), bus and tram lines. 3. The staff at the coffee house/ restaurant (lobby floor) are really friendly and make you feel at home. 4. Wi-Fi speed is good. There are plenty of socket Outlet points for laptop, tablet, phone, iPad, power banks .... And hair dryer! The design of the hotel is well thought-out. Well done!
1. Buffet Breakfast spread: would have expected more for a 4/5 star hotel. 2. The main road from (Batthyány Square) although is lighted up. But there are 'funny characters' and drunks lurking and appearing at darker corners and adjoining smaller streets at night. 3. The underground metro is also full of 'drunks' and homeless screaming and begging for money.
This Hotel was fantastic! Perfect! Walking distance to the bridge and a Hop/On-Off Bus Stop. The view was amazing! The staff was very helpful in providing information about ATM's, restaurants, etc
Location. Friendly staff
That we got a smojing room without asking for it. Room did not smell. But feelt in the morning like cigarette smoke came from maybe ventilation.
I liked all about this hotel, room was really big and clean, comfort beds. Location was ideal for us, 700 m from uptown and 700 m from downtown
The staff was very helpful in providing information about ATM's, restaurants, etc. Our room was clean and made up very well each day. A tram line runs in front of the hotel and a metro is about a 5 minute walk (or take the tram) from the hotel. A bank, grocery store, and numerous restaurants are within 5 minutes or less. The hotel is located right on the Danube and nearly across from the Parliament building. It is also very easy to get to Castle Hill and via tram or metro to most things in and around the city. There is free internet and pots with tea and coffee in the room.
No real complaints, but the bed was a little too hard for my wife but fine for me. I know folks want you to buy there stuff in the in-room refrigerator, but it would be nice if it had a little room to store a sandwich or a bottle of your own pop.
Very quiet and clean. The bed was super comfortable and the room was well air conditioned.
Staff was competent but not friendly At breakfast, the host communicated mainly by gestures and resented any questions. Free WIFI was glacially slow and not really usable.
Friendly staff, nice location
The exercise room is very small and the equipment is limited
The Hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very efficent and the service slick.
Not actually dislike but as such a fuss was made of the 'artistic' side I thought the decor and layout was a bit disapointing and safe.
Very helpful staff, nice design and clean and big room with nice view.
The location could not be beaten. Right in the heart of Budapest (on the Buda side) and on the banks of the Danube.
The water pressure in the bathroom sink was so low that it took an age to fill the sink.
The location is perfect for the Duna or Castle view (maybe less for logistics on the night). The room are spacious and clean.
Breakfast is too expensive and there's not enough explaination on additional services like sauna and fitness room. You may have to walk in you come back after 11PM as the district is not well served by night buses from city center.
lovely modern contempary hotel
promotes smoking. bad stale smell of cigarettes on 6th floor corridor. On Buda side of the city. Most people will want to stay on Pest side of Danube
Great hotel in the center of the city, with great price.
The staff of the hotel is very friendly and helpfully, the breakfast is very good and lokation is excellent.
We very much enjoyed staying at the art'otel. The lodging/meal package was a good value and the location was excellent.
The only thing was that the computer did not function for internet use (and there was only one) but the staff were very accommodating to let us use their computers.
The air conditioning and the bathroom extractor did not work for the first two nights. Compensation was not offered.
