By western standards this is barely livable. Over used bed linen, dirty floors and it was a water leakage in the hallway. It was dripping from the floor above. We lost a bracelet in the sink at there wasn't a safety lid to catch it. But the cleaner was very helpful in trying to find it. Came with screwdriver to... More

Well, every year at least once I`m visiting the city of Budapest. I slept in different types of hotels, and all I just can say that opinions are different because it depends on what do you expect of accomodation which as the present is 35 euros in room for two people. For me, my parents, cousins and friends who were... More

This hotel was comfortable with pleasant rooms. We had a good nights' sleep in the beds. There is a large Tesco nearby where you can buy snacks etc. The staff did not speak very good English but were very helpful nonetheless-they even helped us book an airport transfer when we were delayed back to the hotel. A short walk away... More

The hotel is far from city center and it takes about 30-45 minutes using metro (yellow line) and bus ( 7 or 7E) to reach the hotel. The elevator is tiny and inappropriate for this kind of hotel and the noise at the 5th floor is annoying (the bowling room is at the 6th floor). Toilet in bathroom is old... More

We were only for 3 nights in this hotel. His location is super, only 30 minut to the centre, near to the Tesco shoping centre. We were surprised with 2 things: - the cleanest of the hotel was not very good. - we had a windows to the site with MCdrive. It is horrible, because the conditioning didn't work, so... More

I must first clarify that 2.5 stars would be ok. Hotel is located on the outskirts of Budapest about 30 min by bus from the city center (bus stop - short walk from the hotel). The hotel was repaired from the outside, but inside is a very old device and weird smell (smoking room in the past). The worst was... More

Stayed here for two nights in June and can't complain for 60 Euros a night for a double room although the air con was a little too noisy so turned it off and opened the window. Reasonably quiet clean, presentable and nice range of breakfast food. The reception and dining areas are of a more traditional appearance than the more... More

I stayed here at the end of May with two friends for a few nights. The first thing to note about this hotel is that it is quite out of the way if you are looking to explore the city ... it's obviously not impossible and we did go in to the city everyday. You need to take the bus/tram... More
