Situated near St Stephens Basilica - close to the Chain Bridge and all the sights of the Beautiful City of Budapest! Friendly helpful staff. Clean spacious rooms. Breakfast was typical continental with some hot foods- scrambled eggs, sausages.

Great service. Above and beyond. Allowed us to store luggage and use lobby after check out. Checked the train schedules. Helpful for touring and restaurants. Amazing location close to everything. Breakfast was good, rooms clean. They even searched for a fan when our room was to warm.

The price of the hotel was very reasonable so I wasn't expecting much - but I was very pleasantly surprised. We had an apartment - 2 rooms opening onto a central area with a sofa and TV, and 2 bathrooms. The location was excellent - very central and there was a view of the Basilica from our bedroom window.

I stayed there on the recommendation of a friend. The hotel is in a quiet side street near St Stephens Basilica, and within easy walking distance of the main tram line from the airport. The room was comfortable, and breakfast was exactly as expected. Good service, and good price.

Very nice hotel with an excellent location. It is only footsteps away from the Basilica so expect to hear the church bells ringing in the morning. The only negative was that the temperature in the hotel was very hot!

The staff at the Hotel Central Basilica were so pleasant and helpful -- and so knowledgeable about their city -- that I feel bad not giving the hotel five points. Let's say 5 for service but only 3 or 4 for facilities. The hotel is ideally located in the heart of tourist Budapest on a lovely street next to a... More

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2015

Bear in mind their advertised price - rooms starting at 99 Euros per night. This place is not worth anywhere near that amount. I see from other reviews that perhaps you can get a very cheap rate as part of some package deal, but I would encourage you to look around before booking this place at standard fare. While the...
