I am a frequent business traveller but have booked this hotel for a week's private trip to Budapest. All in all, this is the best value for money hotel I may have ever been to. For 60-80 euros a night, there is a world's difference between the Eurostars in Budapest and the 190/night Paris cupboard I stayed in right thereafter.
Location: dead centre of the city, excellent access to Vaci utca pedestrian zone (1 min) and Astoria metro station (30 sec). Most of the sights are therefore in walking distance. Even though the location on Kossuth Lajos u. (4 lane road) suggests noise from traffic, we heard none of this as our room was to the back court.
Staff: very friendly and even let us choose the floor, which we wanted to stay on, and printed out free internet codes on their own initiative. Booked our spa day for us and arranged taxi transfer.
Rooms: super modern, good sized. My suggestion is to try one of the 5 different special pillows on offer, both "James Dean" and "Marilyn Monroe" are great to have around at night. Plenty of Spanish TV channels, although international channels are mainly news channels. On a side note though, bring your own toilet brush if you do not want for the cleaner....
Other specs: Gym is small but modern. 4 best-in-class treadmills/bikes and free weights. Sauna looks nice but I have not used it. Breakfast buffet is Spanish as this is a Spanish hotel (in fact, half of the Spanish staff do not speak Hungarian), but again great value for money.
All in all, the Eurostar would compare well to any modern inner city European five star hotel.
