    ‘"Super" good hotel. clean, inexpensive, beautiful city: Budapest’ Translated by Google

    "Wonderful", we feel well recovered, the thermal baths are very clean and well-kept, the entire staff is friendly. The hotel was "modernized" (not quite successful). We were already here in 2006 + 2007, so a comparison is possible. show more

    • Cuisine
      Very good, varied offer. Anyone who criticizes there will always find a hair in the soup (even if it's his own) ...
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      sometimes very loud, many guests with small children! According to the description, these should not be in the thermal pools! (Nobody cared about that) For the above reasons, we only visited this area in the morning or evening or looked for quieter areas.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The staff was very friendly, helpful. The evening entertainment (piano player) went down a bit, since television sets were running at the same time (skiing, soccer, etc.)
