I stayed at hotel Gloria with a friend. We wanted a city break and decided on Budapest. We are two girls in our early twenties, the hotel experience was chaotic from the start. We arrived quite late at night our room had two single beds and although it was dated seemed clean enough, although some lights didn't work and the other lighting was poor. We also found that they rarely put the heating on, take warm pyjamas the duvets are not thick and we were cold at night, at times we found it difficult to get a hot shower as well. The pillows were pretty much useless! None of this concerned me as much as the security though, the rooms are accessed by key cards some other guests told us that they were able to lock the door from the inside, but our room could be opened by the key card at any time. It had no chain like other hotels do. The staff are very friendly with one exception, where this member of staff was to say the least over friendly My friend and I felt very uncomfortable at times. We actually would dread walking through reception, one night in particular the receptionist rang and rang our room until we answered then tried to invite himself into our room! This made us feel quite vulnerable considering that we had no way of locking our room from the inside.
The breakfast which was included in the stay was ok most of the time. Until our last day they had ran out of juice, one boiled egg was left and basically unless you were happy eating bread and onions for breakfast you'd go hungry!
The hotel was located near a metro station which was ideal but not when dark, some of the surrounding streets made us feel uneasy in the dark.
This hotel is ok, but I wouldn't recommend two girls stay on their own like we did!
