I spent 4 nights in this hotel. It´s a good base camp for discovering the Hungarian capital, but don´t expect much in terms of charms and looks. The hotel occupies a typical huge, ugly concrete building dating back to communist days. It´s about a 20-minute-tram ride away from downtown Budapest. The tram station is just across the street, a bus and a train station are about 500m away.
The staff do their job but, as was the rule in Hungary, weren´t too friendly. The included breakfast (buffet style) was ample and quite good, especially for being a three-star hotel. Wi-fi (unprotected) was available in the lobby.
The room was spacious and really OK. The beds were more comfortable than was to be expected by the looks of it. Be warned however - this hotel is popular with young people, especially on school excursions, so have some ear plugs at hand ;-). The bathroom was well-equipped and I´ve never come across a hotel with better supply of hot water.
All in all a good option for travelers on a budget not looking for a cozy place.
