Really liked the idea of staying on a boat on the Danube. Location was minutes walk from central Budapest which was great. Also cost is much lower than a hotel for budget travellers. Cabins are adequate, decor perhaps a little tired in places. Restuarant on boat very good, massive portions, breakfasts great. really enjoyed stay, would go back.

Very nice place to stay. A little dirty with lots of spider webs on the bathrooms. It gives an image of an abandoned place. Staff could be more friendly, for example, to show the guy that covers the night shifts to smile.
