GREAT hotel. Hungary, Budapest in particular is very cheap, so I would recommend getting a hotel like this one. It was only about $50 a night. However, because they were so cheap, there were up-charges for things like A/C. Which was $7 euros a night. The staff was very friendly, and they exchange your money to Hungarian currency for free!... More

The location was perfect, the place was clean and the staff really helpful. The place looked very nice with the flowered patio. I found the room and bathroom too small though, and there was no lift, you have to climb the stairs with the heavy cases!

I stayed here with my parents and brother. As we needed 3 rooms for 4 nights the Central was amazing value for money. We had breakfast most mornings which was fine - just a basic continental breakfast spread but decent to start you off in the morning. The free wifi was a bonus and was fine for checking emails and...

The location of the hotel was the key to our good stay in Budapest. The hotel is close to many restaurants and bars leading to major thoroughfares where metro, bus and all other transportation could be found. There were no phones in the hotel rooms, and we were not able to get a kettle or an iron. We had to... More

Nice quiet and small hotel with a great location in city center close to main public transportation hubs. Rooms are small, but clean and newly furnished. Staff is nice so really valuable choice for stay in Budapest.

I'm happy we choose this hotel. Nice clean rooms, small but you have everything you need and anyway you spend of the time exploring the city. Our room was on the ground floor, so we heard cars passing by the window, and still it was ok(almost no trafic during the night). Staff is very friendly and shuttle service is great.

We stayed with five persons in an appartment of central hotel 21. Great stay, clean rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast, good location. The breakfast-area is a bit too small for the amount of guests staying there, but service was good. They also offer a good and not too expensive transfer-service to/from the airport.
