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

Hotel needs some serious updating both in looks and in service. Staff is quite bad in English (luckily Budapest doesn't have many tourists per year :S ). On top of that they gave us Official Budapest City Map that was 2.5 years old so after we checked out some offers, including discounts with owning a tourist card, we decided to... More

The floor tiles were old and sometimes missing. The bathroom had a terrible smell. The breakfast was poor and we had to stay 10 min in line for a... More

Right outside the hotel there is a huge supermarket where you can exchange money at a low rate. the only negative - to the center to take the bus 30 minutes. The perfect combination:... More

Dirty hotel - the restaurant floor was sticky, our feet stuck to the floors in the elevator; Pillows and mattresses were very old – the cotton inside the pillow was wadded up and there were springs poking through the mattress. Guests in hotel smoke in the rooms (tobacco and weed), loud guests were not stopped until 3 am. No fans... More

I was 3 times within 6 months in this hotel. Unfortunately the quality of services declined from one visit to another. At the last visit we had accommodation on the 4th floor, near the elevator. Unfortunately we could not sleep because of the great noise produced by the lift and by other tourists staying in hotel. The last accommodation consisted... More
