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

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
