We stopped here for one night on our way through towns along the Danube Bend. It is an easy walk from the train station. The guest house is in a perfect location for exploring the quaint town's sites, shops and restaurants, as well as for taking a long stroll along the Danube. The room was spotlessly clean and quite comfortable.... More

I recently returned from Szentendre, where i stayed in the Mathias Rex guesthouse. i recommend this guesthouse to anyone planning a stay in Szentendre. The rooms are clean and quiet, and the staff polite and helpful(speaking both German and English). Mathias Rex is just 5-10 minutes walk from the picturesque old town of Szentendre and the bank of the Danube.... More

Located very close to Budapest it was a good choice for a one-night stopover. It is a basic hotel with basic facilities. The room was clean and big enough, basic toiletries in the bathroom, basic buffet breakfast, free WI-FI, secure parking lot, kind and helpful staff.

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!

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
