Location is perfect - easy walk from the rail staying and a minute or two from the heart of the old town. Rooms are delightful - spotlessly clean, lots of natural light, reasonably spacious plus a sensible layout. Breakfast is excellent. Staff are exceedingly helpful Location makes this property a great base for those who wish to explore the Danube.... More

I have just completed a stay at the Mathias Rex. I would compare the hotel to a "Travelodge" in the UK, it offers basic clean accommodation at a low price. The bed was comfortable enough but the pillows were way too soft for my liking, the heating in the room worked well so it was nice and warm when it... More

Very nice stay at this B&B in Szentendre. Cosy comfortable room, excellent wifi (much better than at bigger hotels I stayed at in Budapest), nice buffet breakfast. Very friendly and helpful reception, both before and during stay. Great value for money. Szentendre itself is a very cute historic town, worth making the trip.

Located just a few minutes walk from the suburban railway station that gets you from and to Budapest. A warm welcome, was shown to my room by the receptionist. Room was perfectly fine for one night, by no means luxury but for the equivalent of €35 it was good value for money in my books. Buffet breakfast in the morning... More

Stayed in Szentendere rather than in Budapest and took the amazingly cheap but scruffy train that goes between the two: approx £1 each way and 40 mins The Matthias Rex is friendly with clean but small rooms looking on to a court yard. It has an interesting-looking restaurant which was shut whilst we were there, but there was a street... More

Exemplary guesthouse in the heart of Szentendre, people doing this business should organize study-tours to this family-run hotel to see how one should manage a facility like this. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and the whole place well maintained, breakfast is plenty and tasty. Nothing to complain about, highly recommended!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in June. We picked Hotel Mathias Rex for being close to the Budapest rain and being in Szentendre. The hotel has very large rooms and a godd size bathroom for Euorpean standards. The hotel is a 3 minute walk to old Szentendre, 1 minute walk to the Danube River, 4 minute... More

I had a perfectly clean and very nice single room in this guesthouse and really enjoyed my short (just 2 days) stay there. The staff were very friendly and did everything to make their guests feel comfortable. It's a small, lovely pension where you can rest well. Breakfasts are good and freshly made coffee is excellent! The town itself is... More

The English- and German-speaking staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us good tips about the town and area. They let us use the microwave and crockery in the breakfast kitchen to prepare food we bought in town for dinner. There is secure parking behind the building with an electronic gate. Just take care as the access to the... More

It's been 3 years since I've been there, but I do remember that it was a good clean hotel with friendly staff.
