Recently renovated, passable in cleanliness, staff helpful, rooms, adequate, area fair. Its a good mid range hotel, above a hostel but below 3 star. Good if your expectations match the reviews and write ups. Metro a ten minute walk maximum, ok if a few but I would not recommend singles or females doing at night as there are quite a... More

I've been there with a group of students in march 2015 The rooms were big and clean and the staff at the reception were extremly helpfull . It's located close to keleti train station and bus connections. The only small thing it's the neigborhud is a bit rough at nightime . I can recommend this hotel.

I spent 5 nights at this property and the stay was perfect: location is good (good bus/subway- connections), staff is very friendly (in partcular the receptionist Viktor, always smiling and ready to help), rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast could be improved.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Star City Hotel. The room was just above a basic level, but clean and comfortable. We like the situation of the hotel, in the fact that it was a little off the beaten track, as this gave us the opportunity to enjoy the culture of the city and its residents. There was a... More

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
