We arrived late at night to be welcomed by front of house who checked us in very efficiently. The hotel is in a fantastic position for all amenities. The room was fine but a little warm which wasn't a problem as the windows opened Breakfast was ok a good choice of breads and continental meats and cheeses. Great coffee. Staff... More

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

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...

Just had 4 very enjoyable nights in Budapest. The Hotel is really well positioned to visit all the sights in Budapest, just minutes away from St Stephen's Basilica, and the Chain Bridge. The room we had was on the first floor, a fairly large room with nice high ceilings and well furnished. The room had a safety deposit box and... More

Just had 4 nights here, my first time in Budapest, got a very cheap deal of Jet2 city breaks. The location is top notch, next to the Basilica church and 5 mins walk down to the Danube, Chain Bridge and other attractions, in fact I walked everywhere I went and saw all the sights the city has to offer. I... More

This is a fantastic wee hotel that advertises itself as a 3 star but is more than comfortable enough for demanding tastes. I got a fantastic Jet2 deal that would have hardly boarded my cats for a week, and I had not one single complaint. The location, right next door to St Stephen's Basilica a couple of hundred metres from... More

Recently stayed here for 4 nights. Used a taxi for transfer from the airport which cost just under £20 taking roughly half an hour. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly gentleman who swiftly checked us in and gave us some details on the local area. The location of this hotel is brilliant for seeing all the main... More

Main advantages of this place are location, size of the rooms and professional front desk staff. Next to Budapest Basilica on a quiet and pedestrian street, near to some nice bars (try divino!). Breakfast however is rather basic and furniture is a little bid outdated.

Basilica looms over you as you step out of the door. Chain bridge is 5 minutes away so location is great. Very helpful and friendly staff on reception. Room in good condition. I had a great stay. Breakfast is reasonable but not fantastic.
