We picked this hotel based on the favorable reviews we read on this website and we were not disappointed. Our experience got off to a great start: we arrived to Budapest a little earlier than originally expected, but the front desk staff member was able to accommodate an early check in. He was also helpful in guiding us though a... More

The hotel was very clean. The staff always very helpful . Our bathroom was a little small but on the whole it was excellent value for money. The location is 5 min walk from Rackozi station. Had Aircondition in the room. Breakfast was very good.

I have stayed in various hotels in Budapest, as well as apartments...it's nice to experience something different I think. The Central Hotel 21 was a brilliant hotel because of: The location-Perfect for the 4 and 6 trams that go round the city centre. Located within a 5 minute walk of both the M4 and M2 Metro Lines which give you... More

My partner and I wanted a base in Budapest so we could go out and explore. Room was clean and simple, location was perfect and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Exactly what you need to come back to after long days seeing the sights.

You get what you pay for with this hotel. The room itself although small was exactly what we wanted. However, the positioning of our room was very poor. On the bottom floor and just outside the breakfast area, every morning we were forced to listen to scraping chairs, chatter and cars on the road from the opposite side. This hotel... More

Good location, felt safe, within 15 easy mins walking of centre. Staff was friendly, room inexpensive. My room did not look like hotel photos :) Wifi was perfectly fine, breakfast fine too. Basic hotel, no lavish praise, but no complaints either.

This place was just 5 mins walk from metro station. The apartment kitchen was great and had most of the utensils ready. You can definitely prepare your dinner to save lots of money. (Personally recommend the TESCO in the mall near Keleti station. Everything you need for food and just 2 stations to the living place.) Simple breakfast but you... More
