The location is excellent, right on the main drag. The hotel has beautiful decor, lighting, paintings, statues, furniture, stained glass windows, and a nice atmosphere. It has a somewhat grand and old-fashioned style, which really appeals to me. It was fairly empty when I was there, so it was also very quiet. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The... More

Pro: big clean rooms (equipped with towels, shampoo, hairdryer and etc), tasty continental breakfast, nice view on the main square, historical building, central location, good heating, LCD TV with foreign language channels, good restaurants nearby; Cons: little bit noisy; P.S. During our 2 nights stay, we didn't meet any bugs as was written in warnings.

If I was asked to stay again, I would take the money and buy a sleeping bag for the park bench instead... Do not stay here. This hotel is in exceptionally poor condition. For the price you can stay in decent modern clean hotels just round the corner. As an overview the room was delapidated, bare wires, dusty in general... More

I read the recent reviews with interest and amusement. My wife and nine-year old daughter stayed at the Aranybika on the night of July 1st, 1988 (Yes, you read that date correctly, 1988. Disregard whatever other date you read on this review..) We thought it a crummy hotel even then, awarding it only a grade of "C-." That compared with... More

The hotel is perfectly located on the City's main drag in a beautiful fin de siécle building. We were given a slightly shabby but spacious and comfortable room on the third floor with its own front-facing balcony. After dropping our bags we headed out and didn't return until almost 1am. That was when the fun started. I went out on... More

I stayed one night in this hotel and I would not recommend it to others. There were dead cockroaches on the stairs. The room was technically clean but it felt in disrepair. It was very noisy the night that I stayed. Beware if there is a function on in the hotel, the music and/or DJ can be heard from all... More

Be aware of what you will get if you stay here: This is one if Debrecen's most famous buildings right in the center, designed by the famous architect Hajos Alfred. It desperately needs renovation. When renovated, you will not be able to afford it. But right now you can get an apartment the size of a small town for dirt... More

The location of the hotel is perfect and it is very quiet. Once you enter the hotel, you feel like you entered a museum. The elevator is spooky and do not freak out it you encounter a cockroach. It walked freely until I committed a murder, but the hotel luckily did not ask for an extra fee because I killed... More

We spent three days in Debrecen and stayed in Civis Grand Hotel Aranybika. We had our holiday with our grandchildren (3 and 5 years old girls), so we got a family room. It consisted of two rooms and had a kitchenette, too. Although the furniture was old, the rooms and the bathroom were very clean. The hotel itself looks nice,... More
