Great hotel, rooms are exactly like on the pictures. Staff is very nice! Hotel is 10min walking from the Vaci street. Rooms are small, that`s true, but very comfortable, you have enough space for two persons...excelente :)

Central 21 is a place to stay, but it's not really a hotel. We booked it because we liked the surroundings and the price, but we could have done better. It's placed in a nice street, but in an old building with private apartments on all floors but 2nd, where Central 21 rooms are. It's very funny, you think you... More

This hotel is in a very quiet and well located street of Budapest. Almost no trafic to be heard during the night.. I could sleep with my window open on the street... a chance because without air conditioning the room can be really hot! Just around the corner you will find some of the nicest restaurants and bars.

This was the biggest hotel room I've ever stayed in. I think we just lucked out and got the biggest room. It is a small hotel, very charming and old. It was clean, and the rooms open up to a court yard so it stays pretty quiet. There are several bars/restaurant around the corner. It's a great location for moving... More
