The central position is the best quality of this hotel. The room was clean, spacious and quite, despite near streets are very popular during the night. The staff was always kind and willing. Excellent quality/price ratio.

The hotel Central Basilica is located very close to all the amenities a visitor to this wonderful city could wish for, yet, when you are inside, it is very peaceful. I have limited moblity and I found it to be good for me, because I found I could walk to the eating places, for my evening meal. It was also... More

The hotel is nice, you get a good size room given the location. Don't expect a luxury or a premium hotel, but it covers all your needs. I would say 3 - 3.5 stars for international standards, the breakfast is good too, WIFI has some room for improvement on its speed. The best part are 2 things the location is... More

I stayed here for 5 nights in August. Location is perfect. The rest is average at best. Room: dated and bedsheets always seemed to have fair hair stuck to them (hopefully from the cleaners rather than previous guests). Bathroom: Drain in the shower not working properly, so you get a bath for your feet with your shower for free. Breakfast:... More

Room is extremely small and smelly, lift is not working, breakfast is poor and we must go to another building for it, drain in the shower is clogged! The only advantage of the holtel is its location, but there are lot of better hotels around. I will never return here.

Recently spent a 3 night city break at this hotel which is opposite to the Basilica in a traffic free street. Our room was at the rear of the hotel which was very quiet. Bedroom was a good size with a large bathroom very clean and comfortable. Air con worked perfectly and no problem with wi fi. There was a... More

Very well located, right next to the Basilica and close to everything, but that's pretty much it on the positive side. The so called "free internet" just didn't work, as slow as it was, so you'd better forget it; in the room, it almost didn't work at all and even in the lobby it was so slow that it was... More

Room dark, lighting is extremely poor, furniture overused, upholstery is dirty, towels past due for replacement, breakfast buffet is way too basic, walls in room dirty, a/c is unreliable, bathroom is worn - staff is proper, but not overly friendly...property deserves and badly needs upgrade to be in line with location and growing competition in Budapest

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
