I have stayed at the Cara Hotel a number of times and it is very central and conveniently located. The rooms are clean and modern and I would definitely recommend this hotel for business or pleasure ideal for both.

we stayed 4 days in Budapest and chose the Carat Hotel for its central location. Its very close to the hop-on hop-off bus station, metro line and the Stephan cathedral, opera house and many bistros and restaurants. The hotel is a small 4 star, not impressive, but overall ok. Positive: friendly reception, great selection for breakfast and freshly brewed coffee,... More

We live just outside the city, and knew that we would miss the last train (12 midnight) home, so we booked a room within walking distance of our celebration. The room we had was clean and not huge, but adequate for the two of us. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean and modern. Everything worked well. I... More

This Hotel is a small hotel, where each guest really matters. The reception staff are wonderful, determined to make your stay very special. Ildiko the receptionist who was mainly on duty during our stay, advised us to visit some very unique tearooms which we would never have known about. She booked us in for a massage, at the Thermal Baths,... More

Our room was small but neat with everything you could need. Overall it was very clean but I... More

Stayed here 4 nights late February 2015 and found the experience quite pleasant, after having read some hit-and-miss reviews. All staff were very attentive, most spoke English and I had a quiet room on the courtyard side of the hotel, complete with in-house safe and wifi. The bathroom, and shower-over-bath was very modern, and the bed very comfortable, though I... More

This hotel is in an excellent location right in the heart of Budapest. Easy walking distance to all the main visitor location areas and close to the main square where ther are metro stations, a tram terminus and where things like the Hop-on, Hop-off buses stop (2 mins walk). The hotel was clean and comfortable. Rooms were very simply furnished... More

Stayed in the Carat Hotel last week and can't fault the hotel. The staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. Our room, overlooking the back of the hotel, was quiet (Room 101). It was spotlessly clean.There was a good and plentiful variety of hot and cold food for breakfast. The hotel is tucked away in a busy street with lots of... More
