Star City Hotel is a three-star hotel offering reasonably priced B&B 3-day breaks. It's outside the city centre but there's a good public transport system and getting downtown can be done with ease or on a nice day you could walk. Travellers over 65 ride free. Breakfast bar includes a selection of cold cuts and cheese, breads of different types,... More

We spend 4 nights in this hotel and had a nice trip. Had some problems with the entire room lightning, but it was taken care of at a very next hour after informing. Some might say that the hotel is a bit too far away from the centrum, but we found it to be a great location ' cause we... More

The location of the hotel is not to far from down town, which is great, and the value of money is good for what you get there. The corridors of the hotel and the rooms, in my opinion needs to be refurnished because it looks old and scratched. The recommendations and the help of the receptionist (especially Daniel), were great... More

I wanted a hotel which was near Keleti train station, offered a free breakfast and was a good value - Star City Hotel met all those criteria perfectly. The hotel is 5 to 10 minutes from the train station (leave out the north door), so you're close to the metro and buses. The area felt safe walking back at night... More

This hotel is situated 25 mins fom the centre but in close proximity to Keleti station which has two lines red and green to the centre. There is also a tram stop outside the door. If you are over 65 all transport is free. Just wave your passport. Reception staff very helpful and professional. Rooms adequate given price. New towels... More

We are unable to understand the 4 star rating - although the hotel is close to the train station and within walking distance of the central city, the accommodations are spartan. Our problem was noise, specifically all night partying that the staff was either unable or unwilling to quell. They did provide a nice breakfast and were helpful with area... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night before traveling to Vienna. We stayed here because it is in walking distance from the Kaleti train station (5 minute walk). The hotel staff was not rude, but not very friendly. The room was not nice, but was not bad either. It provided a shower, a bed, internet, and a very... More

This hotel was rated 4 stars in Trip advisor, which I just can't imagine how. We arrived to the property and it is located in an old area of the city which is not very nice to say the least. The hotel is far away from the main districts and you will need to get a cab or take the... More
