During my three day trip to Budapest, I stayed at Hotel Moments ( a new kid on the block having only opened in March 2016. Yet despite its newness, it’s already in second place on that other well-known review site. The building was previously a 19th century palace and then a bank before being renovated. Its 99 rooms are situated round a central glass covered atrium and over five floors (with two efficient lifts).

The basic room, a superior, was spacious. The hall, painted dark plum, had wardrobe, full length mirror and fabulously etched and frosted bathroom door. The second area, in beige, had a desk and chair, good lighting, stocked mini bar and a safe big enough for a laptop. There was sufficient space to stack two suitcases and a wooden suit hanger. The final area, with a much higher ceiling, had a double bed (with individual duvets and brilliant pillows), a recessed TV (with good BBC World), bedside and reading lights. A dark brown fringed curtain hung across half way, and whilst it served no practical purpose, it was stylish. The main striking feature was the wall paper behind the bed. Whilst I didn’t need it, AC was available and easily controlled.

The bathroom was a good size, and whilst mine just had a shower, baths were also available. The fittings were classy and modern with rectangular sink, heated towel rail, hairdryer and good shaving mirror. As befits a new hotel, it was spotless and shiny.

Whilst tea and coffee making facilities are not available in superior rooms, complimentary tea, coffee and mineral water are available in the open plan lounge/reception area 24 hours. It’s Ideal for a cuppa on returning from sightseeing or an evening out, but not for early morning tea in bed.

Wi-Fi is complimentary everywhere and there’s a wellness room with gym and sauna.
Breakfast, from 6.30am to 10am, was a spectacular affair both in terms choice, quality and presentation of the food. My routine started with a selection from the cereal display (15 types of cereals, nuts, seeds and dried fruits) topped with yoghurts served in large Kilner jars. A little fruit followed, before my main event of smoked salmon, cheese, hams and salamis. To ensure I had my 5 a day, I included carrot, cucumber and pepper sticks and quartered tomatoes. There was an excellent selection of breads in the ‘bakery’ and beige linen baskets were provided to carry your selection. Drinks included four fruit juices and a machine to squeeze your own oranges with coffee and tea available in machines. Best of all, sparkling wine provided a kick start to the day. The usual hot items, bacon, sausage, eggs, beans, pancakes etc. were available in recessed serving dishes. The whole area was trendy with high ceilings, scaffolding and what looked like a series of drawers on one wall, but on closer inspection was painted canvass.

This is a hotel which I’d highly recommend for service, location and food.
