This was our first time staying at this Hotel and we were much more than pleasantly surprised. We decided to stay 3.5 days in Budapest at the end of our river cruise on the Danube. The hotel is located on the Pest side and is close to many top class attractions and if you are a walker within walking distance of most attractions in Budapest. The staff were great and more than accommodating. They went well out of their way to ensure your stay was ideal and we're there for you any time of the day or night. Always smiling and pleasant, they were an important part of our experience. The hotel is located in an old castle, which they have modified into a classy hotel. But they have not lost any of the castle features. We always liked to use the stairs coming and going from our room with the spectacular doors, stairs, winding staircase, etc. It was like something from a movie. The rooms and the hotel itself were very classy and ultra modern. The area with the computers and printer was centrally located and top of the line; the breakfast room was a sight to see; the front desk beautiful and our room (a premium) was roomy, comfortable and classy, to say the least. Security features were surprising as you needed the card to enter your room to go up or down on the elevator or get into the doors which lead to the stairways. The same key also was used for energy efficiency as you had to put your card into a wall mounted slot to power up the room and allow for the use of the lights, television, air conditioning, etc.. The breakfast was unbelievable. There are more features I could expound on but I fear I have already written too much. But it is a simple reflection of our feelings about this spectacular hotel. Nothing more I could ask for just continue giving guest the great service that you provide.
