Generally the hotel is lovely, clean, smells nice, has a lovely lobby and a lot of informative information everywhere However, the room was boiling hot. We were forced to keep our window open at night (even in January, which caused a lot of noise?) because the heating was on so high. Our radiators were turned off when we requested however... More

Went there with my girlfriend for four nights. The rooms were spartanious in furnishing and the lighting was not cozy. The room was cold and was not thoroughly Clean. The room was rundown in general (see pictures) and had noticeable stains and smirch. However the price was right and the service was more than great. The receptionists were extremely helpful,...

The Star City has everything you need for a short break. The rooms have all the basic amenities and the breakfast has a reasonable selection of cold meats, breads, cereals and drinks. All but one of the staff that we met were very friendly, incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the city. If you want to spend the majority of your... More

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

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

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.
