Like something out of a horror movie from the cigarette smell, the key to turn on the light on the wall, light sensors, dirty carpets, no security measures, bad vibe. Better get out of there soon. It's a cheap place but the experience is beneath any hotel. Budapest is lovely to have a hard time there. We left an hour... More

Good accomodation for that price and location. The personel is warm and willing to help you even after you check out. No problem to send me needed papers by mail, when I realized I need somethitn else.

MONEY STOLEN FROM ROOMS.. Room not cleaned from previous visit... Front doors to bedrooms don't close.... Staff so rude,no interest in helping you... no towels available.... breakfast disgusting... I could go on. Situated in the "red light" area. Central enough. Wifi in rooms Just save your money- book somewhere else

Went with a group of friends, watch was stollen from room when left on the side, friends phone was stollen, lots of after shave stollen. When questioned they didn't want to know. Breakfast was a joke, cold eggs, stale bread and a few prices of cheese and meat. Rude staff. Avoid.

When we arrived we were pleased to see it was situated on a main road, and not down a little side road. Despite having to carry our suitcases up 3 flights of stairs (luckily they were cabin size!) We were more than happy with our room. We were facing the busy road, but it was not overly noisy when the... More

Hotel was good and also room was clean. But breakfast was terrible. They has cheese and salami. But wasnt good. And juice taste like a water. Location is good. There is train station front of hotel. And you can walk to downtown. (20min)

I was there in two nights and have to say that it was a horrible experience! Location is maybe okay, but you still need to use a public transport/taxi to go to the City Center, so, same money you can find a better hotel closer to the City Center. My suitcase weighed about 35 kg, and hotel was not even... More

I booked this hotel via a easy-jet holiday deal (cheap, cheap!) and stayed for four nights to attend a conference and do some sight-seeing. The hotel is very basic and is situated in the midst of strip clubs and student-esque bars. The Interior was shabby in places. Transport links were good, with a tram stop outside and the metro close... More

I stayed there in March 2012 (not June 2012) as part of a tour group and shared a room with two others. Biggest complaint was it overlooked the very busy and smelly Ferenc Körüt near the Petöfi bridge. Many "iffy" businesses (strip bars, ethnic restaurants, "dollar" stores) nearby makes the neighborhood rather seedy looking. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for... More
