“Well located newer hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Located on Blaha Lujza Square, the hotel is comfortable and of a recent vintage. It is conveniently located at the junction of Metro, tram and bus lines and within reasonable walking distance of many attractions on the Pest side of the river. The breakfast spread was adequate. Rooms facing the square are noisy (sirens all night long) if the window is open, which was necessary because our room was too warm.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the square and street are noisy (sirens all night long) if the window is left open. Bri...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time and leaving us your feedback here on Tripadvisor. I am happy to read that you were satisfied with the hotel and the central location which provides easy access to most public transportation: buses, subway, trams.
We regret to hear about the temperature of the room and about the noise when window was opened. We apologize for the inconvenience. Next time we are more than happy to provide you a room facing our courtyard side.
I hope there will be another opportunity to welcome you again among our guests.
Kind regards,
Ferenc Horváth

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I stayed at the hotel in April 2013 for 5days. Rooms were really nice, clean and spacious. Staff were friendly and a very good breakfast with a choice of hot and cold foods, great selection. The hotel is about 20minutes walk from the Danube but the hop on hop off bus stop is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. There is a McDonalds across the street from the hotel.
Budapest is a beautiful city. If you are on a business trip like I was I recommend using the hop on hop off bus to get to see the city.
I would stay in this hotel again.

This is a new hotel, its a couple of blocks from the Danube but its central. Staff were very professional I arrived late had no issues booking in. The staff were friendly helpful and capable throughout my stay. Rooms are modern clean and comfortable. Internet is good, buffet breakfast is fresh and offers a range of choices. I ate in the resturaant a couple of nights and food was excellent. A taxi from the Airport to the hotel should be ~ 8000 HUF. I was charged 13000, by a guy who approached me with a friendly smile. He was a gangster. Go to the official kiosk. Taxi back from same hotel to the airport was 7500 HUF.

The staff and management of this Marriott property went above and beyond to assist me during my stay, before and after a medical emergency. My room was beautiful, spacious and clean, it's location in the city center really was a selling point, close to all area attractions.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel.
they have excellent wifi in their lobby
they provided Ethernet cable at the room but i had a mac air which didn't have that slot.
so i stayed at the lobby most of the time.
the waitress there was so lovely and cheerful, she kept on asking if i need something and was very helpful despite she had a broken English.

the room i stayed was at the fourth floor and i had a clear view of the cross street.
the street was busy even in the mid-night
the room was sound proof i.e. no noise at all
there is tramp and trains station right in front of the hotel which made it easier to go anywhere as well

i enjoyed my stay there for 4 days

Room Tip: very good hotel in the heart of the city

We used Marriott hotel points for our stay, which is only 15000 points/per night. When I do train travel I like the hotel not too far from train station. This hotel is 10 minutes walk to Kelle train station. It is also at transportation hub and you can easily go any place by sub/tram/bus. The room is nice, clean. There is no free breakfast for Marriott premium member at this location. It is not important any more since Budapest restaurant has high quality food at reasonable price. We did took 2 days hop-on, hop-off red line, which reach some destinations public transportation not go, But it starts after 10 AM and finish at 5 Pm with 30 minutes interval, which makes us still takes public transportation to save time.

Dear Ann H,

Thank you for sharing your experience regarding your recent stay at Courtyard by Marriott Budapest City Center.
I am delighted to read that you liked our central location, indeed we are close by the Keleti train station and our guests can easily take the M2 subway, trams or buses. It is very enjoyable to read that you have experienced the city by the hop-on, hop-off buses.

We would be pleased if we could greet you as an in-house guest in the near future.

My very best,

My experience at this marriott and the other I stayed at while in europe was great. good location, comfortable room and very clean.

The big problems were that for the size of the Marriott chain etc, they one only offer wifi free in the lobby. It became a big inconvience when you went to the lobby and there was no where to sit as all spaces were taken up by others using the wifi. the bar and resturant was not available unless you wanted to order food,

Every other hotel big or small on this trip and we were in europe for 6 weeks offered free wifi in your room. What gives marriott. Also they the other disappointment was they were the only hotels we stayed in that the only English channels were CNN and BBC News. Not the case in all our other hotels where we got free movies and at least 12 English channels.

We sayed at the courtyard in Vienna and Munich as well. Same situation.
