“Great location - dont take a room at the front!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

This is a cracking, very reasonably priced hotel right in the centre of the action. Fabulous continental style breakfasts along with cooked option and exceptionally helpful english speaking staff who fell over backwards to help us. Our room was spacious had a fabulous bathroom (bath with shower over) and a safe for the valuables. Only tip is try and book away from the front elevation - the traffic outside is a nightmare and the local pubs and clubs are noisy late at night and there are early morning deliveries to contend with. If you book a taxi for the airport use the cheaper 2500 HUF minibus option that picks up from other hotels, but allow 20 mins just to clear the street. Budapest traffic during the working day is a complete nightmare!

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the front

A group of us stayed in late June. When we arrived we had to spend a night at another hotel - not ideal. We were taxied back the next day, but it kinda put our 3 day hol on hold for a day. Something about a flood. Worth mentioning incase this is a theme?!! The gym was also out of commission I was told, but the lovely lady at reception who was really helpful during all our stay, gave me keys incase I could get the place working, someone had unplugged a socket! Sauna wasn't on and the "gym" was actually a few machines in the basement - but useable when it was boiling outside! I'd stay again.

Room Tip: We got connecting rooms - which was great if you needed to make the space feel a bit bigger!!

We had a bit of confusion with our reservation which caused a bit of a hiccup in our vacation. The staff was helpful but not consistent. One person told us check out was 2 p.m. and the day of check out we found out it was actually 11 a.m. Also had a room on the street side which was loud. However, the location of the hotel is perfect! You can catch the tram, metro & bus at the top of the street & there is a "supermarket" there as well.

This is a very nice hotel in a perfect location for exploring the city, in a nice area with plenty of restaurants and bars, and with great transport connections to other areas.
Front desk staff are very nice, they were always kind and helpful. The rooms are, as others have noted, a bit small but it suited me fine. The bed is comfortable and the free WiFi worked perfectly. Toiletries in the bathroom are a bit scant, so bring your own things. The in-room safes are large enough to fit a laptop, and the room itself feels secure with two locks you can lock from inside.
There was a great selection of items at breakfast in a pleasant dining room.
I would stay here again.

Well located on the Pest side to get to any site of interest. Room was our least favorite for our travels through Eastern Europe. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was very good. We'd stay there again but request a different room.

Room Tip: Don't take any room that ends in 01.

We stayed for 4 night in the Carat Hotel. The location of the hotel is terrific. See the previous review for info on the metro. The A/C was very nice after touing during the day. The room was large for a European hotel, but small for an American hotel. There wasn't really any place to sit other than on the bed. But the bed was very comfortable. I would recommend a room to the back of the hotel. We were at the front and we found that the college age kids come to this part of town to party. We heard them every night yelling and laughing. We were tired enough that it didn't really affect our sleep too much. The breakfast was fine. It was pretty much the same every day, but they provided hot and cold items and plenty of it. No complaints.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back of the hotel.
