Just back from a two day stay there and the hotel staff were the best we have ever met, so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were spotless and the pool area was so relaxing. The only minor problem i had was that the air conditioning is running all the time and i hate the noise it makes. The Hotel is situated in a beautiful area. Breakfast is excellent.
This is a really nice hotel. Its in a perfect location, just beside the famous bridge over the River Danube, so its excellent for seeing both the Pest and Buda parts of the city. The room I had was really comfortable, with large bathroom including a full sized bath (perfect to soak in after a busy day sightseeing around the city). The hotel also gives you free slippers and there is a large TV, tea and coffee making station and other amenities in the room. The reception area is in the large atrium, and I was made to feel very welcome.
Breakfast was included and was a very nice buffet selection of hot and cold food. And also lots of coffee, juices and smoothies.
There is a small mini mart near the hotel (around the corner), and to get to the hotel from the airport you can get the 200 bus to Kispet Metro station, and then the blue line metro to the Deak Ter Square metro station and the hotel is about a 5 minute walk from there. (Or just get one of the shuttles that run direct from the airport to the city centre hotels).
There is also a spa and swim pool, and a casino in this hotel - though I didn't have time to try them.
I would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Budapest.
