We recently stayed at the Ibis Centrum on Raday utca and were quite pleased with our stay. The room and experience fit the price paid and we'd generally be happy to stay with this hotel in Budapest again.

Pros
Easy to reserve and smooth check-in: We reserved through booking.com, reservation was confirmed quickly and upon check-in everything was sorted in no more than 5 minutes. Staff spoke good English and were very helpful.

Good location: 8-10 minute walk to the city centre and just a couple minutes walk from Kalvin Ter Metro station. There are also plenty of restaurants along Raday Utca and the general area.

Room: Functional, not fancy, room with decent size and expected configuration for Ibis hotel. Closet area, while small, is sufficient for most travellers' items as well as business travellers. There is additional open shelf space under the TV if needed. There is a large extension from the wall below the window that provides considerable space for laptops and other traditional table needs.

Bathroom: Shower space was sufficient and water pressure was nice.

TV: Room included television with a fair number of working channels, including a couple of English programming - like BBC.

Wifi: Free wifi at the Ibis with quick access and strong signal in our room throughout our stay.

Lobby area: Modern contemporary design with small bar area right next to the check-in counter. There is a device charging station along with a computer (wifi) as well. Fairly standard Ibis arrangement.

Cons
Room is functional but basic. You get what you pay for and that is pretty much it. Those interested in nicer hotel rooms and more comforts will probably want to look elsewhere. Also, closet area is small, could be an issue if you have much luggage.

Bed: The mattress was a bit firmr than other Ibis hotels we've stayed at. Would have have preferred something a bit softer.

No safe to store your valuables in the room.

Housecleaning: Left noticeable dust in the room from previous visitors and on shelves from previous guests. This was disappointing. Otherwise, daily cleaning was acceptable.

TV: Limited number of channels and English programming if this is an issue for travellers.

Overall, we were generally happy with the Ibis Centrum hotel and would be happy to stay there again. The pros outweigh the few cons and those familiar with the Ibis hotel chain should be generally approving of what they experience here.

Just returned from a four night stay in Budapest and would recommend a stay at this hotel. The location was great for getting out & about with plenty of places to eat right on the doorstep. The hotel was very clean, staff friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast always provided a good start to the day. Would certainly book again if we visit Budapest.

Room Tip: Our rooms on the top floor were very quiet.

Easy to find and an M3 Metro/tube stop right nearby. Close enough to everything to walk if you want to.

Very warm welcome from the English speaking receptionists and very smooth check-in which we are able to get before 2pm! Couple of lifts between floors so easy to get to your room. Rooms well appointed as always and clean and spacious.

Didn't really try the bar - It didn't seem to be much of a bar to be honest and I have seen much more welcoming Ibis bars. We ended up going to a couple nearby for a nightcap and there were plenty to choose from. Looks like it will be very lively outside in the summer as the road is semi-pedestrianised with bars, cafes and restaurants all ready to spill outside as soon as the weather turns warmer.

Breakfast good as always and different choices on both days we were there.

Internet access is available and you can mail your boarding cards to reception and they will print them off for you - So efficient that they were already printing them off before I even asked!

Would recommend for anyone staying in Budapest - Price OK <>£100 for 2 nights with breakfast.

stayed in the Ibis just at the end of feb, room price and location were the main reasons, plus getting some good reviews. Taxi drivers all call it Ibis Raday because of its location. couldn't have picked a better location, very central, only ten minutes walk to danubue, railway station and museum and right on a street full of very reasonably priced bars and restaurants. it exactly what you would expect from a city centre hotel, comfortable, clean and tidy with friendly helpful staff. has a reasonably sized breakfast room and all the breakfast basics are catered for. would stay again if I was coming back to Budapest.

The location offers a quick access to the tram & metro, the hotel located in Raday street which has plenty of restaurants.
If the rate is below than 50 euros then you can get a good value of money otherwise you might try some of the nearby hotels for a better value.

Room Tip: Be away of the elevator.
