Everything you'd want from a city break hotel
Mark M, Essex
Friendly staff, clean and comfortable. Perfectly adequate continental breakfast with a few hot items. Close Chain Bridge so convenient to everything without being in the centre hubbub. Only negative, and it is very minor, was the low lighting in the room. Good public transport, trams and bus within 200 yards and metro within 1/2 mile (and the tram goes there) so a 3 day travel card is worthwhile. Access to hotel via steps or steep cobbled slope was hard work with limited mobility after a hard day, but still worth it :-)
The best thing about my stay was...Hotel ambiance

James Bolger, Dublin
Perfect location for our short stay, very clean room and located right by the chain bridge so we got the most out of both Buda & Pest. Sits under the castle and close to all transport.
The best thing about my stay was...Close to both sides of the river and castle, get the 3 day transport card from the hotel, well wort the value.

The breakfast is excellent, receptionists are friendly, and the best is that it provides computers and printers. What I would like to recommend is that the Wi-Fi of room 401 where I stayed was good at the door, but pretty weak at the desk which located by the window.

Paul Mayle, Chelmsford
Stayed 3 nights at this hotel, couldn't fault it, helpful polite staff, decent continental breakfast,comfy beds, clean , great location near the chain bridge, good resturants nearby, i particularly recomomend the gong resturant 200 yards up the hill towards the castle , the proprieter is hillarious, had us in stitches, good food too.the belgian resturant near the hotel is good too. The only thing to be aware of is for those with limited mobility getting to the hotel would be a nightmare, there are lots of steps to the hotel entrance one way and a steep cobbled slope the other.
The best thing about my stay was...the gong resturant
