We booked the room with three single beds. It was huge. High ceilings. Hardwood floors. Didn`t feel like a hotel room. Great water pressure. Lots of hot water. Old building which added to its charm. Spotless. Receptive and accommodating staff. Despite the loud air conditioner, it kept the room cool. In-room mini-fridge. Breakfast was more than sufficient with a good... More

We (two adults and one child) stayed at Kalvin House recently on our visit to Budapest. We chose this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews and Rick Steves recommendation. The hotel is indeed in a great location, it’s a block from the Great Market Hall and is a convenient starting point for all the Budapest sights. The hotel is also a... More

I visited Budapest on december with friends, and chose to stay here. Good decision. Location of the hotel is excellent. The room was huge (for three people) and always clean. Staff was nice and breakfast, well, basic. The hallway/stairs had a pretty bad sewer smell, but not the rooms.

Kalvin House - or Kálvin Ház - is located close to the square Kálvin tér and the great market hall. Only a short walk to the subway, but with a good pair of legs you can walk to most of the attractions in the inner city. Our double room was quite large, and there was aircondition, which was essential during... More

We chose Hotel kalvin because of the location, just down from the Great Hall Market, close to great shopping pedestrian way, close to the Jewish Quarter, and a walk over the nearest Bridge to the Buda side where you will immediately find one of the famous bath houses. Our room was spacious and with character. Breakfast was ample although not... More

Love the decor- very oldie worldie - clean rooms, helpful staff. The breakfast could do with a little more choice, something hot perhaps? Maybe an omelette or bacon? Just cereals and a small selection of breads. Fresh fruit would be better as an alternative. The rooms are very spacious. No power showers but okay.

Good convenient location in a sincere neighborhood. Close to trams and metro. Big spiral staircase between floors. A sketch of our bedroom, bathroom and closet would have required 38 line segments to draw! Nice view onto courtyard. There was no air-conditioning on our floor.

We had a large room which accommodated 3 adults well, the AC was much appreciated as it was very hot in Budapest. It is just a block from the marketplace selling crafts and Hungarian food and the staff was very helpful booking tours for us when we could not navigate the Hungarian websites. A nice breakfast was provided with bread,... More
