As stated before me - Great location, 3 minutes to the metro station making it very easy to get to. A few minutes walk to the Danube or to the old Jewish quarter which is a very hustling & bustling place at night. The hotel is simple, very clean with a very helpful front desk staff (actually all the staff... More

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

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
