4.0 / 5 (1)

It is an Art Nouveau piece of architecture and I like it for that. I can imagine how many VIPs have been walking over the carpet I was standing yesterday, It is torn and worn, but it is probably original. I like the view from my breakfast table over the danube and the wide choice of food an drinks they offer. I like the thermal spa, but I would prefer to experience less noise from the trams on Szent Gellert ter. Maybe the British hotel chain can spend some money for better window isolation. When coming from Germany or Austria, leave the train already at Kelenföld, from there its only 4 M4 metro stops to the front entrance of the hotel.
