Rooms and bathrooms were spacious. Location is fantastic right next to the basilica and close to many restaurants. Staff were efficient, helpful in booking taxis, giving advice and storing our bikes. Breakfast OK. Only real drawback was that the rooms were hot and the air conditioning did not seem to work in our room. Didn't like the 5 euros charge... More

Located near St Stephen's Basilica, with a 5-minute walk to Deak Sq and the three Metro lines, also within walking distance of Chain Bridge, :Parliament, opera house, etc. The hotel itself is okay: the room was clean, there was no chair, only a stool; the bed was extremely low; the bed linens, towels, and pillows were second-rate (towels with holes...

This hotel offers the best location with The Basilica just across the street, so if you are planning a city trip sort of vacation, you should definitely consider booking this hotel ... The Breakfast is basic and needs some improvements ... But staff very friendly and helpful ... to sum up you get what you pay for.

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.
