From start to finish this was a great choice such good value for money and everything you could hope for really.
The Kiraly spa next door I could live in gladly. It is so relaxing and so much more therapeutic than the larger more decorative baths such as gellert which i unfortunately wasted precious time on. Stroll over takes about 2mins and the hotel had a discounted rate for residents but it does not include towel rental this is very important if you dont want to bring your purse with you. We brought old swimsuits and just dumped them at the end of the weekend the minerals do smell but honestly i dream of being back in that water again.
We were glad we chose a hotel with breakfast included as it was between that and having a pool and sure the baths were right next door and we were well prepared for sight seeing everyday.The restaurant had lovely food and breakfast was very relaxing with a patio outside aswell if the weather is good enough. The selection of cakes were beautiful and the usual cereals and yoghurt but no fresh fruit. Unfortunately the restaurant is not open at weekends/bank holidays. Our package booked with the hotel included a welcome drink we were surprised by and were told we could have anything we wanted including a bottle of hungarian champagne at anytime we chose over our stay. The minibar is restocked everyday with complimentary soft drinks and water.
Also with the package was the floating bus tour and the budacard. This is excellent and with the location so ideal it is very close to the river and almost directly opposite the parliament. It took us about 20mins to walk to the chain bridge and there is a bus stop right beside the lovely little church next to the hotel. The Mammut shooping centre is about the same distance away and Dora or any of the receptionists are as always great with everything including directions and bus/tram routes. The castle area is really close and you are on the main tram line that runs all along the river to gellert and the chain bridge for the funicullar up to the castle. I would really recommend doing the walking tours included free with the buda card it was very good.
The rooms themselves were lovely the package included a free upgrade to a suite. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in I dont know if it was the baths or the bed but I slept better than I would even in my own bed. Spotlessly clean. Internet if you want but there is free internet located to the side in the small bar downstairs. Dont forget luggage storage and a quick 2hrs pre flight in the spa.... they even gave us towels from the hotel after we'd checked out when they heard that the entrance deal they had on offer didnt include towel rentals. No need to hesitate.
