A good but basic hotel in a very good central location. Exceptionally clean, good breakfast. Comfortable bed, but sheet not big enough for bed. Pillows and towels very thin. Close to tour buses, trams and Danube.

On the good side, the hotel is located very conveniently to downtown Budapest and has a very good breakfast for the price. However, I experienced very poor service at the front desk and the beds are very uncomfortable.

Just returned from four nights at the Central Basilica and can thoroughly recommend it. Recent reviewers have described it very well and there isn't a great deal I can add, it is a fairly basic bed and breakfast hotel but is spotlessly clean and comfortable, brilliantly located and incredible value for money. The reception staff deserve special mention for their... More

We stayed for 3 nights over a long weekend, and would recommend this hotel. The location is brilliant right next to the Basillica, but on a mainly pedestranised street, so we did not find it too noisy. The reception staff were brilliant, really helpful and informative and happy to answer questions and give advice. The room we had was large... More

I have recently returned home after a fun filled and very well packed 4 days/3 nights in Budapest. We travelled with 2 friends and had an amazing time. The reception staff couldnt do enough to help. I ordered champagne and chocolates for our rooms and as requested these were there waiting for us upon arrival. We had inside rooms on... More

Staff v helpful, breakfast was good, there was plenty of choice (although the milky rice at breakfast was weird-looking?!). Easy to find from Deak Ter metro station, 24hr shop round the corner, couple of coffee-shop chains very close, 5 mins walk to Danube. Only downside was the comfort of the bed wasn't ideal but this may depend on what you're... More

We were fortunate enough to stay in Budapest in December. A good time to visit the various Christmas markets and enjoy the festive feeling in Budapest. The Reception staff were amazing, very knowledgeable and gave us great advice on trips and things to do. They deserve a medal for having to repeat themselves so often! We could not fault them....
