Anchored on the city’s most famous street, Váci utca, which runs parallel to the river at the very centre of the city and contains the bulk of the boutiques. Top restaurants, cafés and the main sights are readily accessible from here. Bustly and busy, you couldn’t call it a quiet spot, but the rooms are well-insulated from the noise.
The Promenade has only been open a year or two, and the 45 rooms remain in good nick. They are well laid out, with a wall-mounted TV and a little desk, and have a soothing colour scheme of chocolate brown. There’s free WiFi, air con and soundproofing – important because Váci utca is a lively street.
There’s a small, minimalist-style reception area and a glass lift serving the six floors. The breakfast room is on the top floor.
Eating and drinking
No restaurant or bar, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars within very easy striking distance.
I've always found the receptionists to be helpful.
