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

Me and my friend came to Budapest on a budget holiday, an 11 night stay cost us about £170 ish each, so we weren't expecting an amazing hotel. However, our room is very spacious and clean, the breakfast is excellent and the staff are wonderful and helpful. My only criticism is the place could do with a lick of paint... More

The hotel staff were friendly with good English. The desk was manned 24hrs. When asked they provided good information and directions for restuarants. Breakfast is basic European fare - rolls, croissant, scrambled eggs, tea, coffee etc. Wi-fi was good in the rooms. I had a 3rd floor room overlooking the courtyard. Only downside was occasional stale smoke from below. I... More

Let me begin by saying that the staff was excellent. I arrived late at night and the hotel was already locked. I rang the bell and the hotel clerk let me in. It was good to know that the entrance to the hotel was secure. The clerk was pleasant and helpful despite the fact that it was 1:00 a.m. When... More

The hotel is nice, if you are not demanding much. The best that we got from it is a free welcome drink fortunately in the center direction named Lado.
