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 Breakfast however is rather basic and furniture is a little bid outdated.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.

We stayed overnight at this hotel and left too early to enjoy breakfast, so I can't comment on it. The location is hands down the best! Situated right near St.Stephan's Basilica, the hotel is an asset for the tourists who are visiting Budapest only for a short period and have no time to spare. The Chain Bridge is within walking...

We had a lovely few days at the Hotel Central Basilica just before Christmas. Very central location - literally round the corner from the Basilica and Christmas market. Breakfast was typical continental hotel breakfast, plenty but not very exciting! Staff were very pleasant and helpful, gave us maps and recommended places to see. They arranged return shuttle to airport which... More

For it's budget tag and price then surely this hotels location can't be beat, 50yrds away from St Stephens Basilica, 10mins walk to the Chain Bridge & Danube, 20/25 mins to the parliament building, 10mins to the shopping area. This is a very good 3 star hotel which doesn't pretend to be anything else but 3*, other reviews are correct... More

Just had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights and it was a great little hotel. This hotel could not have been more central for sight seeing ( the basilica is literally 10 steps away) or shopping. It was also really handy for the Christmas markets with one of these being right in front of the basilica itself. Room... More
