In spite of asking for a room with easy access we were given a tiny cabin of very steep ship's stairs. The information on Internet stated there is a lift but there is no lift and we are both in our late 70s. Otherwise very clean with reasonable cheap breakfast. Bedroom so small we had to climb in from bottom...

The location of the hotel is great, right ON the Danube, near Margaret Bridge. You can see Margaret Island and the beautiful music and color fountain there from the boat. Is pretty close to tram stations, and the transportation in Budapest is pretty good. Walking distance to the Parliament building and the Lukacs thermal baths (over the bridge). Be careful...

My sister and I stayed at this boat hotel for 4 nights. Very small beds but overall a comfortable stay, housekeeping daily. Breakfast is not the best, eggs and french toast was cold. Very basic food, no croissants or toast available which is usually a regular on buffet breakfasts abroad so was disappointed with this. The Lord Nelson restaurant on...

The boat hotel is well placed for tram travel and walking along the danube. There as some lovely views from the boat in the evening. I found the op deck was great relaxing of an evening watching the boats travelling up and down the river.

The cabins are nice, with two or three beds. It is what you would expect from a boat. The rooms and common bathroom were not very clean though. If you plan to get breakfast included, it's a good choice, as you can choose from a lot of stuff.

The view was very nice from our room however we found the price is too high for the quality and service. Shower barely worked. Its time for new shower head. Asked for shampoo it was not available. Some staff is very friendly and some should not be in the hospitality business at all!!! Breakfast was good. Bread is fresh every...

For the price, this was a great choice of accommodation. The boat is beautiful inside with chandeliers and lovely nautical furnishings. Our room and bathroom were clean although certainly small (but you are on a boat!) The location is quite good. is north of the city center on the Danube. One can walk into the center of town in about...

Overall we enjoyed our time on the boat. We attended a conference and arrived early so stayed in two different rooms. Both were clean, though small. Bathrooms are quite small but work well. Beds were comfortable enough though the pillows were small (but bedding was really nice). The main room complaint is the carpet looks filthy (even though I'm sure...
