Decent place in Budapest
Great location in an old building. No permanent reception, however, so you have to coordinate your arrival time. The rooms facing the main street can be noisy with traffic.

Great home away from home
I had a wonderful stay. It's amazing that it was so cheap yet so nice and in a historic building. Judit was an amazing host, both kind and helpful. It's not a luxury hotel, but more like a home away from home.

Convenient clean with all amenities required
We had a wonderful cozy stay and had a lovely host. the only thing preventing this being a 5 star is the milk was bad in the fridge- which should have been checked as there is a milk kitty tin in the kitchen. Also the shower heads look like they could be updated, but the bathrooms were clean. Our room door was also broken and difficult to open we almost had to call the host. Something i didnt down score for was that there was some slight noise traffic at night and early morning but not an issue for deep sleepers. It was still a really great stay and cozy I would definately stay again.
