The hotel has a nice restaurant in the lobby that provides ample and delicious meals (but look out--you may be the only one dining there at any time). However, when I paid for my meal, I was short-changed in the change that the old man tending the place gave back to me when I paid. It was the equivalent of 10 euros (in forints). Now, I don't speak Hungarian and the old man (waiter?) didn't speak English (as is very common in Hungary). But when I realized the error in change and produced it to show him, he had a look of recognition on his face and walked off to retrieve the missing change. He then gave me EXACTLY how much was missing from the first time he gave me my change back. I wondered how he knew, without me communicating to him, how much change was missing. I realized that it was because he did it intentionally. It was early January, there weren't a lot of people in the hotel, I figured business was slow, so maybe that's why he tried. However, if you stay here, beware.
Also, the advertised internet didn't work anywhere except the lobby on the hotel's computer. And the bed in my room was AWFULLY uncomfortable. Thin mattress with bed springs sticking in my back. I have stayed at nice, cheap places in Budapest. This place is neither nice or cheap, nor honest!
