5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

We, 2 senior ladies stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and loved it. Very clean and the twin bed room was most comfortable. The staff was really very helpfull in organising tours for us as well as the shuttle bus transfer to the airport. Quiet area although the pedestrian shopping street is only a 5 minute walk away. We can really recommend this hotel to all who wish to visit the lovely city of Budapest. Great location near the river.

Got a good rate with Expedia. Clean room, comfortable beds. Room to move. En-suite - good shower. Room made up every day. Great breakfast (extra) - fresh baked croissants divine. Lots of fruit. Friendly staff. One major problem was noise from the pedestrian street at night, mainly party-goers or drunks shouting well after midnight. Had to keep the window closed and the air-con on. Two other minor issues: the t.v. remote didn't work (and someone had re-tuned the t.v. channels), and there was no safe in the room.

Room Tip: Expedia gave us a good rate ...

Dear Chris 2006!

Thank you very much for writing a review. Nice to hear that you liked our clean rooms the comfortable beds and the shower. We try to ceep our rooms nice clean and tidy, so our guests can enjoy their stay in maximum comfort. So sorry about the noise, the Hotel is in the heart of Budapest, but we have soundproof windows and air condition for these cases. If the tv remote doesn’t work you can always ask for help at the reception, I am sure they can solve the issue. I hope you enjoyed your stay and could go shopping in the pedestrian street after the great breakfast with fresh croissants.

Kind regards,

The hotel staff was very friendly, they changed us double room for tripple without additional payment (we were travelling with children). The breakfast was more than perfect. The variety of food would be apprecciated by everyone. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean, everything worked perfect. We were there in March 2010, and we were also pleased. We will get back if we will go to the Budapest

For the price we paid, this was a real bargain. Rooms were clean and tidy, The beds were comfortable. Central location but still very quiet. We didn't try the breakfast since there were plenty of places around and we wanted to try different places.

This is a great location, very clean, nicely decorated, and well priced hotel in the Budapest City Centre. We were very happy with the room, and with the very friendly staff.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011

My partner and I spent an enjoyable four nights here in June this year (2011). Whilst we were primarily in Budapest for a concert at hte Pap Lazslo Sport Arena, we wanted to spend a few days here sightseeing etc.
LOCATION:
It takes around 40mins to get here from the airport, the public transport network is very good and we quickly sussed out that we had to hop on the main train into the city centre. We got off at Nyugati station, which is pretty central to all the bars, restaurants and shops. From Nyugati rail station we hopped in a taxi -which only took about 5minutes, and was very cheap - however we easily could have rode the tram two stops!
From the hotel itself it's about a ten-minute walk to the shops (mostly clothes and jewellery etc) and all the bars and restaurants. Transport-wise, you're literally two mins away from a few tram stops (they are all for different destinations), and so it is very easy to plan a day's sightseeing. The underground system is brilliant too.
Whilst the hotel is central and near a couple of bars, it is on a little back street, which means there is no traffic noise, and no risk of being disturbed by people leaving the bars late at night.

STAFF:
Very friendly, very helpful. They advised us how to get to certain parts of the town etc, and spoke excellent English.

ROOM:
Nice enough. We do tend to find quite often that outwith the UK, anywhere that costs less than £100 a night will always have the same two single bed pushed together to form a double bed. It's not ideal, but it's something we've grown quite accustomed to. The bed was comfortable (albeit with a slight gap in the middle!) and clean. The bathroom was spacious and clean, quite nice in fact! Well-looked after. Whilst it would have been nice to have a fridge and a safe in the room, not having these was no major issue. Overall, the room was spacious and clean, and probably worth more per night than we paid for it!

OVERALL:
Really good vaue for money, excelent location and great staff. Thouroughly recommended.

Friendly receptionist. Great location near the Astoria metro station.

The room had a closet with coathangers, but no shelves for other clothes such as t-shirt and underwear. Reasonably sized bathroom, soft enough towels.

TV with about 20 channels (several German and Hungarian, BBC World, Russian) plus premium channels for a daily fee. WLAN only with a prepaid card sold at the reception: 10,000 HUF for 7 consecutive days, or about 4,000 HUF=14 EUR for 100 minutes of (nonconsecutive) online time. (I find this outrageously expensive.)

Buffet breakfast from 7 to 10. (Be sure to check whether your reservation includes breakfast, both "with" and "without" are possible.)

Dear bisnes-and-pleasure!

We are happy to read that you were pleased with the location, the soft towels, the many TV channels and the friendly receptionist – our receptionists are always glad to read such reviews.
I am sorry for the situation with the shelves in the closet, but our Hotel has shelves in all rooms, in some rooms you can find them on the top- and in other rooms you can find them on the bottom of your closet.
I hope you will remember Hotel Erzsébet City Center as the friendly central-located Hotel in Budapest and you will visit us again.
