“OK for a cheap one night stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We were on the 4th floor but could still hear traffic in the morning so I'd classify the hotel as a bit noisy. Bring ear plugs and eye mask (curtains are very thin). Sheets were clean, bathroom was clean..ish (saw a few hair that had not been vacuumed), fittings generally bit old and tatty. Did the job for us because it was a one night stay after a late flight from budapest airport. At 30 quid we could not really complain. If you're looking to do sightseeing in budapest and are staying a few days unless you're really on a budget there must be nicer options out there. Very important you HAVE to book the airport taxi with the hotel, do not grab a cab from the airport they might try to rip you off. Our taxi (although it was a official taxi from the airport) put the meter on but took us to the hotel by taking lots of back roads and took a longer time that he was supposed to, even went round the block twice at the hotel under pretence of trying to drop us off just in front. How could I argue when I wasn't a local and didn't know the way. It cost us 20 quid+ for the cab ride, with the hotel it would have cost only 10 quid (3500 HUF).

It is a very nice hotel, the location is excellent , the only two things that were not good was that the airconditioning didn't work and the beds are to low.

The staff is very friendly!

A very good budget little hotel, very basic but clean and comfy.
Good location, just a few steps away from the bus / metro station. In only 15/20 mins you reach the city center, there is a night bus that will get you to the hotel if you plan to stay out late. Just keep in mind that this will take you up to 1 hr.
I booked a room with a shared bathroom and we got a private bathroom! The room we had for 4 persons was big enough, clean towels and sheets. Free wifi , safe and even a fridge! I could not expect any more for what we paid. Definitely a place to recommend if you travel in a low bodget and want the best for your money. The staff also very helpful despite all the comments about not speaking good english i think was good enough to help you out on anything you might need.

Low WiFi signal strength in the room.
The locaton of the hotel is very close to the metro station.
But to reach the center of Butapest 20 minutes are necessary.
