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

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

Small room (in order to go to bad you had to be very carefull not to hurt yourself in the furniture). The furniture wasn't old, but was in very bad shape. 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
