We spent 4 nights for a city trip Budapest in Central Hotel and had a 6-persons appartment for average € 10,- pppn and 1 double room (3 beds) for € 210,- fot 4 nights per room. Lovely charming hotel, very nice people, comfortable & clean and a short walking distance to the metro

Clean and tidy rooms. Staff on reception are very good and helpful. The breakfast isn't up to much and there are very few tables so people were queuing- not ideal to be honest. Well equipped room, particularly liked the hairdryer in he bathroom. Friends had a triple room in the quad at the back- much quieter than ours on the...

We stayed for four nights. We didn't get the room we had reserved but they fixed us another room quite as good and gave discount on our breakfast so that was OK. Room was clean, AC and free Wifi worked well. Staff was helpful and friendly, except the other lady at breakfast who propably just needs a vacation. Breakfast was...

As we needed a triple room, it was the only one in budget and with three beds as we didn't want to have to get a second room. The beds were comfy, aircon did take a while to cool the room but it did work eventually, there is a minibar but we didn't touch it. Bathroom was clean, has shower...

Room was OK in size but the carpet was filthy, the bed was tiny and soft, and the bathroom was modern and OK. There was no AC in the room but a fan with...

We stayed here in June for our first visit to Budapest. The room was nice and clean, staff very helpful and friendly. There is a courtyard below the rooms if people want to sit outside or smoke. The rooms are slightly dated but this did not really impact our stay. The hotel is not in centre but it is not...

Stayed in the hotel for 2 night, but originally wanted to stay for 4 nights. However, my plans changed and just 2 days before my check-in they allowed to change my booking for free! Great location and great customer service. Rooms are small but clean and neat. No Air Con but they offer fans. Good sleep.

We stayed for 2 nights in Budapest last week. The hotel was impressive, design-wise with a little garden in the middle. But the most commendable is the hospitality and topnotch customer service of their receptionists. They go an extra mile to make your stay not just in the hotel but in Budapest as whole pleasant and stress-free. Ive never seen...

Me and my friend came to Budapest for a 5 night stay and I could not recommend this hotel more. We walked everywhere and it was the perfect location for this, with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming which made our stay even better, giving us a map and highlighting the key spots...
