First, the hotel is located in a strange area. The neighboring houses and hotels are falling apart but also there is a great forrest/park next door that gives great views over parts of Budapest. The Hotel is some 10 km away from the citycenter and is perfect if you arrive with car. I didn't go with public traffic but there was a lot of buses going to and from the park next door.
The hotel is worn down and in need of restauration. There are two restaurants in the hotel, a grill and an a'la Carte. We tries the later and food was terrible and expensive even to Budapest standards, maybe that's because there are no other restaurants in the area.
Maybe my expectations were set to high by the reviews here on TA, but still there are better hotels closer to the city at better prices.
