Very nice, very central in the city! I think the location is very important. It is central, but quiet, so I slept well... The service in the restaurant was good. We would recommend the hotel to our friends who visit Budapest.

It was a little tricky to find tucked down a back street but once you've figured it out you can walk to a lot of places or the underground station is a short walk. The hotel was small but clean and tidy. The staff were friendly with excellent English and the hotel was always quiet when we wanted an early... More

Great value hotel, set in a good location. Really nice and helpful staff. Very comfortable beds in a reasonable sized room. Very enjoyable stay in a great city with lovely people. Top tip when visiting Budapest is to go on a walking tour on your first day. You get a good feel to the city, whilst your guide gives you... More

Staying 2 nights, I was quite satisfied. The staff was very helpful, the rooms are well-equipped, but maybe small for someone. The only inconvenience was that there is no elevator, and our room was on the ground floor, the windows facing the street, so I would recommend another room.

Great find, very central in the city, rooms were spot on and a very good price. It wouldn't win any awards and isn't fancy, but I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a Budapest centre hotel.

I took my girlfriend to Budapeste in November as a surprise birthday present, and booked this hotel due to its location and because of the price. The entrance wasn't as bad as the reviews made it out to be, and the decor was charming and subdued. Bed was comfortable, heating worked very well (necessary for the chilly hungarian nights), and...

We've stayed here for two night on our way to Vienna. The hotel was very clean, with perfect free wi-fi and convenient location. We booked double room with parking. The parking was underground which was very good for us. The breakfast was ok, it is not like in the big fancy hotels, but it is totally enough. There was an... More

Stayed for a few nights while on a city break to see the Christmas markets. Hotel is within walking distance of the city centre, but is also just round the corner from the metro stop if you're too tired to walk. The room was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom lovely and warm with under floor heating. They didn't have... More

We were stayed for a night at Central Hotel 21. When you entered into the hotel the receptionist were very welcoming, and all the other staff was very helpful and kind. Room and bathroom very clean. Brekfast is smashing, loads of choices. Location is great, loads of things withing walking distance. We would stay here again.

We went to this hotel for a weekend city trip. It is very well located, The room was small but comfortable with a clean bathroom. The breakfast was disppointing: there were choices but not very good quality of food. Staff were very helpful.
