Hotel Moments Budapest
Sitting in the lower end of this boutique-lined Andrássy út, the resort is well set up, with St Stephen’s Basilica and the Opera House both a brief walk away. Deák tér — in the junction of three subway lines — is near by also.
Design & personality
The construction dates to 1880, and also actual pride was taken in its own renovation — appear, for example, to the frescoes from the glass-topped atrium lobby, that can be loyal to the type of the period of time, and required a few months to paint. But, alongside the 19th-century attributes are well-considered modern design features — such as some pleasing quirks such as downlights created from chests of drawers at the breakfast room.
Service & facilities
The hotel features a health and massage place which has a small exercise room. Adjacent to the lobby is really a sofa offering free coffee and tea 24/7, while just off the entry — under the revived ‘historic stairs’ — is a online corner with three terminals. I discovered that the staff polite and helpful.
The 99 rooms — all place across the atrium — are medium-sized and modern classic in design, most with beige and black carpets and walls of mild chocolate and plum colors. Bathrooms have mirrored glass doors etched using a spectacle from antiquity, and a walk-in bath or shower-over-bath. There is minibar and secure, but — aside from in the suites — no more coffee and tea, which is rather supplied free in the reception lounge.
Guests allergic to allergies may ask among eight rooms which have hardwood flooring and unique anti-allergy pillows.
Food & beverage
Bistro Fine, the resort’s low-lit restaurant, is a real corker. Really, it is so great I ate there both nights of my live. The décor plays gently upon the background of Andrássy út, also includes a set of rail headlights set to the pub counter (the subway line running underneath the route was the first in continental Europe).
Hungarian and global dishes are innovative, superbly presented and very reasonably priced (a three-course meal comes in at below #20), whereas the service is exceptional also. There is a vast choice of great wines offered by the glass through Enomatic dispenser. The airy and lively adjoining breakfast area provides a fantastic buffet spread.
Value for cash
Double rooms from #80 in low season; climbing to #102 at large. Breakfast included. Free Wi-Fi.
Accessibility for guests with disabilities?
There is one disabled-friendly area, and all public places are wheelchair-accessible except that the online corner.
There are 3 pairs of connecting rooms. I stayed here using a set of young kids, and the staff were very welcoming towards them giving them every cuddly toy present.
