Reading the other reviews on here, they all seem to have rather petty complaints... Bara is a three star hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The Hotel is in a good location, quite far from the airport but we managed to get a taxi costing 4,500 HUF from outside which seemed reasonable. The Hotel is situated in Buda on a road leading directly off the Elizabeth Bridge. It's a 10 min walk away from the Citadella, Liberation Monument and the thermal baths on the foot of the bridge. It's a 20min walk to the bottom of the hill and over the bridge to Pest, and there is a bus stop right outside the Hotel, and you can catch the 8 or 112 which come at least every 10mins, which takes about 5mins.
The room we stayed in was dated in it's decor, but spotlessley clean and very spacious. It had a mini bar, sofa, chairs, desk, TV and ample storage space. The only, very small, complaints were that there was no safe and the pillows were uncomfortable. The bathroom was also spotless with a lovely big power shower!
We didn't notice the hotel being that noisy, if loud people came in at night you could here them, but what do you expect?
Breakfast was great, sausages, eggs, bacon, cerial, salad, yogurts, hams, salamis, cheeses, bread, juice, coffee, teas and a vast selection of Hungarian pastries. Plenty of choice, and all very tasty. At night the breakfast room becomes a restaurant serving quality food: I had chicken stuffed with prunes, wrapped in bacon with roquefort sauce which was amazing. The bar is cosy and realtivley cheap, especially for cigarettes.
Staff all spoke brilliant English and were friendly and helpfull. Another plus was the free internet acess is the lobby.
We paid just over £100 for our 5 night, double room, bed and breakfast, stay at Hotel Bara and we were more than satisfied. It's an excellent budget hotel for travellers looking for somewhere basic, friendly and clean with good acess to the sights of Budapest. I really don't understand the complaints on it being too far away when it is such a joy to walk and such a short bus ride!
