Very good position near the metro e bus, you can go everywhere in the city in a very short time. Receptionists very nice. Rooms and bathroom are quite big but not very clean. The continental breakfast a bit disappointing. overall is a good place to go.

Absoluutely disgusting service. The hotel is nice and the concierge (half Dutch) is a wonderful man: but he wasn't there that night; I waited 90 minutes to get my room booked and had to call my Hungarian wife in England to call the hotel back, finally to check in, when they discovered I did actually have a reservation. That should... More

Robert helped us a lot whilst we stayed here - he recommended a lovely place to eat and even made the reservation for us. It was literally a 2 min walk away from hotel. Another guy also helped us out a lot when we decided to stay another night. We had to leave at 5am and he organised our taxi.... More

A group of 10 of us stayed here for 2 nights and we were all impressed by the quality of the hotel. At first it can be hard to spot as you go through a bar to the main reception. The rooms are very clean, spacious, air conditioned and comfortably. The staff were very helpful, provided us with plenty of... More

Had a wonderful weekend trip to Budapest, and found the hotel through booking.com due to it's good reviews and close location to the Keleti Train station. It's only a 5 minute walk from the station (at the moment there were many constructions so it took a little longer), and it was very simple to go through the bar to the... More

A group of 6 of us stayed here for 5 nights and were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It's a decent 20/25 min walk from the river but only about 10/15minutes away from all the ruin bars and is on a main road so we all felt quite safe walking about at night. Very close to the local metro station... More

I stayed here for four nights, it was my first trip to Budapest, and did not quite know what to expect. Overall the hotel was quite good, the only reason I wouldn't give it an excellent was the location, being that it was about a twenty minute walk to the Danube, but other than that it was great. The rooms... More

With changes made to the rooms most recently made staying at the hotel visually pleasant, a rustic feel to the bar (a good thing) made you feel you were in the NY or London! However, the best part about our stay was assistance, service and communication that Roberto gave my friends and I. His knowledge of the city is second... More

Great Location. Large & clean room. The advantaje from my point of viwe is that, first, you enter in a small bar, and after that you can find the reception. It's a good way to make sure that you won't have a bad surprize.

This is my 3rd stay in the Elit and it hasnt let me down yet. Its very good value for money with large clean rooms. It is in a good location with everything you need within easy walking distance. The staff are exceptionally helpful without the stiffness of the western Euopean hotels. I came for dental treatment but was working... More
