Valentine's visit

Cool in Uk but freezing in Budapest. It feels 10 degrees colder than it says. Hotel good value and staff excellent. No problems and alpha rooms got a good deal for me.I Am about to book a couple of days in London with them. Hotel Mercure not really 4 star but breakfast very good and rooms adequate though bar area cold as by doors to outside. Been to a lot of cities but wont be back to Budapest - outside the hotel nothing is open in winter and u8nfortunately no signs in English or other european languages to help with directions. No maps in metro stations but thankfully the local estate agent on Andrassy was very helpful and told us to use the 4 and 6 tram to explore the city - it would have been good if we could have found a customer information centre open. Also found restaurants over expensive for wines and the wine not good - give me Prague or Barcelona any day.

Review of 'TAVERNA'

You would be hard pushed to find a better location for a hotel in Budapest. It's in the centre of the main shopping district and close to the metro and bus services for easy access to other parts of the city. Just a couple of hundred metres from the hotel was a wonderful outdoor market selling crafts, some delicious local food and warm mulled wine.<br /><br />The hotel itself was clean and comfortable, though the room was disappointingly small. The bathroom was particularly tiny, big enough only for a shower and unfortunately not very well soundproofed either (take care if sharing the room!).<br /><br />Breakfast was the standard buffet fare and more than adequate. The adjoining cafe on the ground floor does an excellent hot chocolate!<br /><br />I think the four star rating is rather generous in comparison to other four star places I've stayed at. Had I not got an excellent discount through Alpharooms and paid the full rate I think I would have felt a bit cheated, but if location is high on your list of needs and then Taverna should be seriously considered.

Review of 'TAVERNA'

I stayed in the Hotel Taverna at the end of August 2006. The location is spectacular for someone who enjoys getting out of the hotel and walking the famous Vaci Utca. Short distance to metro and other public transport. The room was clean and modern, bathroom very small but staff very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with (except a breakfast waiter Atila who was rude and intimidating). Breakfast was delicious & plentiful. Great variety of intercontinental as well as typical hungarian dishes. Free internet in the lobby. I totally and without any reservation recommend this hotel as an excellent choice in Budapest.

Review of 'TAVERNA'

This is a fantastic hotel.&nbsp;&nbsp;It is very central being right in the middle of the main shopping area (Vaci Street). The rooms are very clean and modern and the food was good.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />The hotel is also very close to an underground station and the main bus routes.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /><br />If you are travelling by train into the main station (Keleti Pu) you can just get on the number 7 bus and get off after 2 stops which drops you about 200 yards from the hotel.<br /><br />I would definitely return to the hotel because of the fantastic location, good value and helpfulness of the staff.<br /><br />Can't recommend enough!
