The service is atrocious. I'm not sure if Hungarian hospitality is very poor in general or this hotel particularly hires and trains their receptionists to be rude and unfriendly to the guests. When I asked for new towels since the room hadn't been cleaned while I was out, I was informed that normally 3-star hotels only change towels once every three days. Really? Even the 2-star hotel I stayed in Porto, Portugal cleaned our room everyday and gave us fresh towels daily. And their service was much nicer. Even backpackers in other countries have nicer service. The rooms are small, and not maintained/ cleaned every day. On the other hand, the breakfast is not bad. Wide range of food and the taste is okay. The waiters and waitresses aren't so nice, just like the receptionist. The location is quite nice, however, and deserves 5 stars. The hotel is right between two metro stations and close to the bus stop as well. Even better, it is close to a tourist attraction (Heroes' Square) and Szechenyi Thermal Pools. Overall, if you care about basic respect and friendly, welcoming hospitality, do not stay at this hotel. Your money will be better spent elsewhere.

We were there in December. Heating worked during the day, and over night radiators were cold, so it was cold in our room. There wasn't hot water in our room from 10 pm till morning, during our whole stay, so we could not shower at night. Rooms are clean, our bathroom was new. Breakfast was good. I would recommend this hotel only because of it's location which is great!
