"Super" good hotel. clean, inexpensive, beautiful city: Budapest

"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.

You couldn't ask for more!

We have spent our little vacation in this hotel three times and have never been disappointed by anything. As long as possible, we would visit our Margitsziget every year.

Great vacation.
