This hotel was nice enough interms of the rooms and facilities, however we found the staff to be rather rude.
I understand that we were a rather large group of under 35's... but they should have predicted that we would probably end up wanting a drink or 2 at the hotel bar at night and prepared themselves possibly with an additional staff member?
We waited up to 25minutes to be served at times because the man at the front desk was "busy doing other stuff"... he then was rude when he took our orders.
So, yeah, not impressed with service, but the hotel itself was nice enough

Well...where to start with Budapest. We have had major discussions as to if it's prettier than Prague. Final decision is that there are allowed to be multiple pretty places out there!
Yesterday we started off with a tour of the Hungarian Parliament. One of the most impressive buildings I have ever seen. Ceilings and statues and stairwells …

... she did it we have no idea but was a lovely spread with special cake made and decorated one for Heather, one for Zsuzsi for last weekend plus a Velvet Anniversary Cake for the 40th. To top it off, a cake Lime and Poppyseed cake was also made for Mark for next month. It was an amazing day meeting Zsuzsi's sister and family, Zoltan's brother's family and a good friend of Zsuzsi and Ester's family. Needless we all piled into a taxi to come back home, lots of laughter ...
... of the most beautiful cities I have ever driven through at night, it looked very similar to Singapore. Except in Singapore we didn't get the 'pleasure' of driving past a sex shop as 'kevin lyttle - turn me on' came on my iPod and the fact my auto correct changed it to 'kevin tattle' as I wrote this was just too good not to mention. Went to the 'House of Terror' which is a building that Hitler and Stalin both used as their headquarters and then converted the basement into a ...
... for a hotel in the city centre. In Budapest you can get some really good deals on 5* hotels. We stayed at the Queen's Court Hotel a few streets away from centre/river. I'd recommend it to anyone, and we were the first to check in that day so we got a free upgrade. It's a bad life ey.
With an early train to catch the following day we only had a limited time in the city and had to cram as much in as possible. So for the first time this trip ...
