“Staff couldn't be faulted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Just returned from a wonderful week in Budapest. Staying at the Hotel Lucky, on the trolley bus connection to metro line at ferenz stadium. So out of the town, but good transport links. Wonderful flea market on a saturday morning.
Hotel itself is I believe only 20 years old, but you would think it was 200 years old, it is not by any means luxurious. But cosey and you instantly felt as if you were staying in maybe your Grans house. The staff were absoloutly brilliant. So where the decor lacked, the staff made every effort to make your stay in Hungary a pleasant one. Would definitely return to this hotel, purely down to the friendliness and warmth of the staff there.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I visited the hotel a few days ago and I have to stay I didn't have any major problems with it. The room was small but clean, the bathroom was spacious and clean. The furnishing isn't very modern, but it really didn't bother me.The TVs are old, but since I didn't go to Budapest to watch TV, it really didn't bother me either. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and even funny, especially the receptionist (it's worth the visit just to meet this guy). The cleaning lady came into our room once while we were sleeping but apologized immediately and apologized more than 10 times after. They even let me use the WiFi free of charge. It is quite far from the city center, but you can reach it easily from the hotel. All in all I think it is good option for a reasonable price.

Trip was for 3 days 15-18 September 2012. Hotel is in a badly lit residential area with no other hotels or bars in the vicinity. Trip into the city takes 15 minutes by trolleybus,then transfer to underground for 3 or 4 stop around 5-10 minutes extra, trip is longer if the transport isn't immediately waiting for you, out travel time averaged 35 minutes. Facilities offered according to the Internet--hairdryer,tea/coffee making-none,asked for these & none available. Restaurant-no menu at all, no choice,a plate of varying food was brought.
Decor leaves a lot to be desired. As for cleanliness, Health & Safety would shut it down. Bathroom toilet seat was a different colour to the pan, which had not been cleaned properly,to the extent that there was a black ring round the water line. The can of air freshener I took came in handy at night to mask the drainage smell which came from the bathroom drains. As for the toilets in the restaurant, these were not fit for using, they had not been cleaned for many a month, the dust in the dining room was so bad there was writing in it, which wasn't moved whilst we were there.In short, this was a poor standard hotel which I would not recommend to anyone. The standard reminded me of hotels 30 years ago.

Its a OK hotel, stayed for 3 nights, breakfast served between 7am to 10am which is a selection of European meats and cheese's.

The bedroom was ok, only allowed to turn the air conditioning during the Summer months despite having warm nights so kept my window (that lead on to a small terrace) open, but it is a quite area.

Good access to the centre of Budapest via the 82 and 77 bus link to the M2 metro line.

Was allowed to use their PC to check my mail and Facebook!

Room Tip: If you are coming to and from the centre via the Metro, the last metro back to the hotel is at 11.33...

At best this hotell is 2 star, everything was quite clean but it needed a major overhaul, TV was about 20 years old and no english chanels. As everyone says that the clerk is very helpfull and speaks good english.The breakfast i can only describe as being typical Hungarian.
The bus is right outside and takes about 25 mins to get to downtown .
On arrival i was told that a goverment tax of 400 huf per day had to be paid. If your on a tight budget then this is the place to stay. but for a few pounds more you can stay in the Hotel Eben which is near the tube and Arken shopping centre

We paid for hotel through the internet, but had to pay extra, 1.30 EUR per person , per day x 6 people x 3 days. I was seriously surprised when i was charged extra for the parking, even no body told to us that parking is paid when we asked. So in total, the bill was 50 EUR higher for 3 nights then at the start
There is internet in the rooms but you have to pay for it... system for paying the internet is , as much as they can take, they do. Originally price is 300 forintas per day (not a lot ) , but password is the same for everybody. They try to charge you for all days you are in hotel, multiply by person, what is non sense.
Breakfast very poor and not good quality. Location is more less ok for the price...
In total , if charging was fair, would give better marks, like this that's all.

It is far from center. It is not far from Polus shopping mall.
But we chose here because it is close to our friends apartment. Transportation is easy, bus to almost frontdoor, then bus connected with subway to town center.
Winter is not the best season, so we didn't see other guests, and don't expect variety for breakfast for this reason.
Kind staffs.
Air condition kind of too warm.
Recommended if you chose this area for some reason like visiting friends nearby.
