Paid only 50 eur for a huge familyroom (not included breakfast). The room has one single bed and two double beds for even 5 persons. There is also a low cost minibar and a kitchenette. The room was located on the groud floor in a small inner court. The building itself was looking very poor condition outside but it is... More

My husband and I spent three nights at this hotel and would definitely recommend it. The hotel is located a short walk away from the busy city centre and the staff were extremely helpful with local information and maps. The room was spotless and comfortable. The breakfast was 3 euros each and was a basic buffet of a very good... More

Arrived via taxi late night after a flight from Berlin. First impressions were not very promising i.e., trouble locating, exterior not very promising, interior area & steps somewhat shabby & loud drinking party going on in SMALL reception/breakfast area. Second Impressions were more up-beat i.e., Young man @ Reception Desk/Bar was most accomodating and even offered use of the kitchen... More

I stayed in this hotel on Dec 11 - Dec 13 2009. I had a double room booked via Last Minute.com (Really cheap deal). We contacted the hotel via email (they speak good English) and booked our taxi transfer with them - 24 euros (or 6000 HF). He was waiting with my name on a card when we landed (even... More

We have stayed in the Central Hotel 21 for 4 nights in september 2009. The hotel was easy to find with a map. The entrance looks a bit frightening but once you climb up the stairs the hotel is brand new, secure, cosy and clean. The location of the hotel was very good, it is quite near to all the... More

We stayed in this hotel for a long weekend at the beginning of August. Hotel was great - rooms were small but clean and modern, staff were helpful and friendly, not too far away from the main attractions. The only slight niggle was that without air-conditioning we had to have our windows open to control the heat. This was fine... More

A friend and I had an overnight stay here while travelling through Budapest. It is a €20 taxi journey from the airport. We didn't try using the buses but were told this would take around 45-55 minutes. From the outside the building looks quite run-down, and the staircase up to the floor the hotel is on is quite weathered (or... More
