Close to Keleti Station, which is why I chose it, so a little distant from the centre. The room was comfortable, breakfast okay but not outstanding and the staff very helpful. I would stay there again. Very good if you are travelling by train.

The reception was very friendly and answered all our questions. We did however not get the room we had orderd ( a double) but a room with 2 seperate beds. When we asked for another room, we had to ask ourselves to another guest who had just arrived to switch rooms with us which was quite unprofessional of the hotel....

The hotel is in a walking distance from Keleti station; there is a bus 2 min walk away (no 78) that goes to the Parliament. Our room was very small with a tiny bathroom but it looked not bad.

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
