Reasonable price, nice location and friendly staff! I booked it through hotel.com you can also buy Széchenyi Thermal Bath tickets at the hotel and it has discount! Totally worthy! although you have to walk like 5-10 mins to metro, but very close to tram and there are quite many little vintage shops around!

Decent size room, A/C, Free WiFi, and mini fridge in the room. Staff was very friendly and helpful, sorted out our airport transfer and recommended a nice local restaurant.

Stayed here with about 12 friends for a 50th birthday break! Great price, great rooms, no breakfast but not the end of the world! Bit of a walk to centre but taxis are cheap enough! Man on reception was helpful and very polite! Beda were comfortable and rooms well equipped.
