+ Cabin 233 (234) splendid view, spacious etc, nice interior on board the ship not too much like a building. Try to keep it like ship!
- Music from the restaurant? Luckily it was turned down early :) Had it been warmer, we would have appreciated a few comfortable deck chairs...

Elizabeth Doyle (Friends) from Melbourne, Australia
Guest score: 5.71 / 10 5.71 average,
+ The view was breath taking from the boat and the inside of the boat was gorges the old wood the chandeliers. Breakfast was delicious.
- The night shift manager was not very help full. I speak fluent Hungarian not as though he could not understand me. I requested another pillow they only have one pillow on the bed and very flat. His response was you should have asked in the morning there is nothing I can do for you now. There are no real sheets on the bed just a piece of cloth. Mattress is soft you sink in the middle. A little too far from the center of Budapest we would have stayed longer at the hotel if service and comfortable bed. Stayed at the Star In Hotel for 10 more nights fantastic.

Young couple from Bratislava, Slovakia
Guest score: 6.86 / 10 6.86 average,
+ Helpful people at desk but rude people at restaurant. Nice location and rooms not big but cute.
- Nothing going on on the boat, just for sleeping. We didn't like Janos restaurant nor boat restaurant.

Mature couple from Derbyshire, UK
Guest score: 5.71 / 10 5.71 average,
+ Value for money.
- Detail features:- The mattresses were lumpy. The sheets were not bit enough to tuck in properly so you ended up sleeping on the bare mattress. The air con. barely worked at all and was needed as there were no opening windows or ventilation. I would not like to be there in mid-summer. Wash basin was badly cracked. Chambermaid service was almost non existant.

Berenice Wallace (Friends) from Beds, UK
Guest score: 7.71 / 10 7.71 average,
+ The cabin was very clean and quite spacious, we had a separate sitting area with a small table and two chairs which was a pleasant surprise. The room had a nice view and was particluarly warm and cosy,loads of hot water for showering and it was nice breakfast did nt finish until ten am for us not so early risers!! I must also add we arrived a little early but were able to check in straight away which you don t always expect even at a quiet time of year.
- It would have been nice to have a kettle in the room but we were aware in advance when we booked this was not available.
