We stayed in this hotel to visit the World Dog Show and to celebrate our wedding Anniversary and were not disappointed in any way. From the moment we arrived we were offered coffee or a soft drink while filling in the registration card. The reception staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. I had asked in advanced for a room over looking the court yard and this is exactly what we received The room was excellent, very modern with a striking and impressive mural on the wall. The bathroom had an excellent walk in shower and was well appointed with hair drier and toiletries. The room also had a mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities and a flat screen television with plenty of channels. Breakfast was a good European selection of cold meats, cheeses, pate, boiled or scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, as well as a large selection of breads, pastries, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit and juices, an excellent touch was the sparkling wine so you could start your day with a bucks fizz! We chose to ask the hotel to arrange a taxi from the airport which is around 30 minutes away and costs around 30 euros which took away any worries finding and getting to the hotel.. We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel and would recommend it without hesitation. Can I think of any down points?? They would be very minor ..I did not like the high level seating in the breakfast eating area, there is lots of other seating, but we arrived at a very popular time so was the only place to sit. Hooks in the bathroom for a robe or clothes?? So small and only my own thoughts.. This is without doubt a really great place to stay, you will not be disappointed !!

Our arrival in this beautiful city was off to an impeccable start when we were received in the hotel reception by Henrik. There is no counter, but rather a beautiful wooden table to sit at and complete the formalities while you are offered a hot or cold soft drink and as much help as you want with getting your city bearings. All the reception staff we encountered during our 4 day stay were unfailingly courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. Our room on the 4th floor was massive - I was slightly freaked out at the clear glass window dividing the bathroom from bedroom and would be much happier had it been opaque, as it was in the bedroom where we stayed on the first night (front facing, so we requested and were graciously allotted a room overlooking the courtyard from the second night on). Excellent buffet breakfast in the light, airy and modern glass roofed courtyard. It is a minute's walk from the Opera House and Opera metro stop, about 4 minutes' walk from St Stefans' cathedral and the main square where all 3 metro lines meet, Ferenc Deak Ter.

When we travel to Europe we like to stay in one city and take side trips so we don't waste our time packing and unpacking. We stayed 12 nights at the Casati Budapest. When we made our reservation we asked if we could get a cheaper rate and we had an enormous room (#47) overlooking the courtyard for 99 euros a night. They called it a "cool junior suite." The normal rate is 160 euros. The two drawbacks, at least of this room, is that there is no dresser or storage for clothes other than a small closet. No matter, the room was so big I could leave an open suitcase on the floor. The other annoying feature was the shower design. There was no effective barrier or lip separating the shower from the bathroom floor so showers had to be short or the water overflowed all over the floor.
The location is perfect, one block from the M1 metro and the Opera House. We saw two operas and one ballet. Lots of restaurants around but stay off Andrassy Utca where the prices are higher.
There is a mini-fridge stocked with drinks and enough room for us to keep cheese, hummus, etc. The breakfast buffet was amazing, even a bottle of champagne in an ice bucket. Cheese, eggs, meats, cereal, yogurt, fresh and dried fruit, all sorts of breads, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers. The coffee from the machine was terrible though. It tasted like instant coffee. There was a nice selection of tea.
We would definitely stay here again.

We are just back from a 5 day city break in Budapest staying @ The Casati hotel, you simply could not fault any part of the Hotel , it's facilities or especially the staff .
The only way the location of the hotel could be any better is they had the metro stopping in the reception and I'm sure if you asked they would try to do that for you as well :) , we were a 10 minute walk from the heart of the city with any amount of decent restaurants and shops , The bedroom ( #14 ) was spotless when we arrived and every day when we returned, with Air-con that you worked and a surgically clean bathroom and free Wi-Fi which was as fast I have found in any hotel . This hotel even has its very own art gallery on-site.
The breakfast buffet was brilliant with plenty of fresh fruit, bread's , juices, cold and hot meats, the only very very MINOR issue I had was the dark liquid that was coming out of the coffee machine instead of real coffee but that was soon forgotten after a pit-stop @ one of the many cafe's with-in 2 minute walk .
When ( Not If ) we go back to Budapest, it will be to the Casati

We can highly recommend this place. Everything was close to perfect. Nice and charming rooms, clean, close to the center. Nice restaurants and bar in a few minutes walking distance. Breakfast was very good - coffee could be better. I really thought about asking the receptionist for a Nespresso (we got one when we checked in :). Very good value for your money, we will definitely come back again!
