The hotel was modern and nice. We especially liked the breakfast! Will be coming back :) The staff was kind and helpful. The location of the hotel was also very good. It was easy to everywhere by foot.

Great location: close to hostels but at a walking distance from true **** and ***** Hotels.
Terrible (often included) breakfast.
Untrained and not professional personnel.
Arranged a fare with confirmation mail and demanded a higher price threatening to charge to confirmation credit card.
If you plan staying here (just for the location), be sure to pay in advance and pretend a written paper stating you have payed all fees!

It takes you five minutes by foot to reach the "hub" metro station of Budapest - Deak Ferenc Ter. The hotel is located in a nice area with loads of cafés and restaurants.

Elegant hotel, cosy rooms and friendly staff, the only thing that was not really four star was the breakfast - it was OK, but not really amazing.

A very good clean and efficient hotel. Staff were very friendly and informative. The breakfast caters mainly for Continental tastes with different meats on offer, however there were boiled eggs and a variety of cereals as well as beautiful bread and spreads available. Once again staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel location is very good being approx. 5 minutes walk from the Danube and trams/underground etc. to other attractions. We actually walked everywhere including Heroes Square and the Royal Palace in Buda.
My only criticism about the hotel is the noise at night (early morning) as our room on the second floor overlooked a road where noisy revellers walked past, however this was only at the w/e.

I've stayed at the Carat hotel 4 times. (a week each time)The hotel is very central to most of the main sights.There is a metro station at the end of the street (4mins walk).There are two supermarkets close to the hotel.Also,there are some good bars and restaurants in walking distance.You can get a bit of noise at night from them.Especially at the weekends.l normally ask for an inside room.I wouldn't worry about a good view.There isn't one!

The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful.The cleanliness of the hotel was very good.The breakfast has a reasonable choice to eat and drink.There is a bar at the hotel.It is open from 2-10pm.It is quite nice if you wanted a quiet drink.The room was of a good size that l had.My only complaint is that the pillows and mattress on the bed very soft(cheap).I used 3 pillows in the end.It still felt like l had only one!

I would recommend this hotel if you like soft bedding.

Very good location of the hotel. Walking distance to major attractions in a city. Helpful personel with good English.

Renovated rooms: simple, but cozy. Free Wi-Fi (little bit slow at night, when everybody a back to hotel).

Breakfast is simple but has enough choice of food. Nice small local style cakes.

Room Tip: I would aska room facing back-yard to avoid noize from the street.
