“Good Conference Hotel in Buda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Appreciated staying in the same place as the conference and the auditorium, meeting rooms and catering were convenient and good. The rooms were small but reasonably priced and clean with free internet throughout the facility. The only issue is that either the air conditioning is on or off and the heat is on or off. Staying in the room when the AC was off for the season, meant that the room was very hot. The window only opened slightly. Controlling the temperature all year around would have been a great boon. Staff were uniformly helpful but they do need a full-time concierge as the desk staff seem to have to multi-task constantly. The location was fair...wish it were in walking distance to the historical sites as we were dependent on taxis.

Good location for conference as linked to conference centre. Little out of the centre but easy to reach by taxi. Good service and good food. Friendly and helpful staff. Good recommendations for restaurants.

Ok it's a small thing but the room doors need an active step to close them properly. Being used to many hotels this was unnerving. Other than that the room is "Accor standard" and functional but silly things also annoy and add up. E.g the rail for the clothes did not have sufficient depth so the jackets are proud of the closet, in the room corridor and get moved every time I walked past. But ...the hotel was clean well maintained. Service very good and the conference centre worked really well and the catering quality impressive. So although not for me it is basically a good hotel and good value for money

We stayed here 27-29/9 on a Leger tour. Rooms were comfortable with all the required amenities, including tea & coffee making facilities, although the separate toilet was a bit strange. Buffet meals for dinner & breakfast were fine, something to suit everyone. Minibar in room but it was very expensive. Out from central Budapest a little but Metro just across the road. Large shopping mall 5 minutes walk away if you need anything, also had a few eating places & bars. Would stay here again.

The staff are friendly, the hotel is clean. Rooms are small, but probably standard for Europe. Beds are thin and small, not terribly comfortable. All amenities are modern. Food in the buffet restaurant was good, food in lounge bar was decent but not spectacular. The hotel is on the Buda side, right next door to the Congress Center. It is very close to public transport, which is easy to use, so it is easy to get to Pest where the action is, but it is not in any way a practical walk. Definitely not the place to go if you want to be in the middle of the center, but otherwise a good, clean value for the price.

Don't go there if you are looking for a nice,romantic week-end in Budapest ! But I have just attended some conference there and I must acknowledge that the Congress Center offers all the facilities that are necessary for a smooth and efficient event organization.
Rooms are comfortable, clean and wifi quick enough.

Room Tip: For maniacs: avoid the 7th floor, at lease some rooms could be affected by the problem: it is either...

I think it was the first Novotel Hotel in Budapest as a part of an international business center. The hotel is suitable for business, the reception staff is profesional, but it is visible mainly in the rooms that the building is more than 20 years old... The bed is not so confortable than in other Novotels, the bathroom is old and needs to renovate. The parking is overpriced. The big hotel is remembering the glorious days when it was the unique modern business hotel in Budapest... Generally it is ok, nothing more...
