Good budget hotel central to attractions. Reception staff very approachable and extremely helpful. Beds very low, poor quality bed linen and towels threadbare. Pillows like wafers. Shower waist high, hand held. Breakfast atrocious, boiled eggs, hot dogs, or scrambled eggs with rice pudding or mashed potato. Waitresses for first 3 days very miserable, did not wish to help guests. Crockery... More

Highly recommend this hotel, right in the heart of everything. Near the main squares and the Jewish area which has many 'Ruin bars' which are well worth checking out. Very clean rooms and a fine buffet breakfast! Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed there last June for 5 days. The reason why we chose this hotel over others was because of the location. And we were indeed not disappointed. Aside from the location, the receptionists are very helpful. Check in and out was fast. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the room and bathroom is quite spacious and clean. Continental... More

The hotel is located near almost everything a tourist would need; walking distance to most attractions, metro station, a variety of restaurants, and money changer. The hotel staffs provided excellent services during our stay.

What a great place to stay, at the heart of the Budapest. We will definitely stay there again! The staff were very helpful and friendly. Really enjoyed our break. Budapest was a lovely location for our 3 night city break. Ensure you visit the hospital in the rocks.

This is a great location to base yourself for a stay in Budapest. Central to everything in Pest and just a couple of minutes walk from the Chain Bridge to cross to Buda. Large, comfy room with a huge bathroom. The air con worked on day one but not afterwards. This was not an issue as being on the back... More
