Nice hotel. We had a big room with 1 double and 1 single bed, a bathroom ( not perfect, but ok), a TV that didn't work, but we were too tired after exploring the city, so we didn't care. Breakfast was OK, nothing special, just OK. Good thing is a POLUS SHOPPING CENTRE just opposite the hotel, with a big... More

It's very basic hotel with small rooms and even smaller bathrooms. Interior is old-fashioned. Rooms have tv, but I didn't use it. Wi-fi is available in some rooms, but you have to pay to use it. Hygiene is not perfect, but acceptable. Hotel has excellent price, and good thing is supermarket and shopping center Tesco right across the street. There... More

If you are looking for a no nonsense hotel at a good price, this one will do. The rooms are clean. It is conveniently located next to the Polus Center which has a TESCO, restaurants, a movie theater, shops, banks, and a place to change your money. The breakfast has traditional Hungarian choices. There is a pool. I was here... More

Hotel is located next to Mc Donald's and near to shopping center Polus. There is outlet shop Tamaris with excellent price. Hotel is small, clean, with warm and small rooms, good for night rest if you want to visit Budapest. Hotel has a small swimming pool where you have to bye a ticket.

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
