There are pros and cons with this place, but on balance I'm giving it a (just about) 3 star review. The pros are easy: great location on the main tourist street and the price is very cheap for the area. The room is reasonably comfortable and it is secure with its own bathroom and TV, so all that is good.... More

**MEAL ONLY** Walked past here on our way to look at the market which we were too late for. We had been given a flyer by someone outside the hotel restaurant, with 4 food deal options at 1990ft each, one option was Goulash Soup followed by Paprika Chicken and dumplings, just what we fancied. Staff were perfectly friendly served us... More

We went for a meal only. We were enticed in by lovely pictures of the food and offers of discounts all round. Staff were pleasant throughout is the only good point. The room itself was quite chilly. The food was ok but not like the pictures. I had onion soup which was horrid. It was garlic soup - very strong... More

Avoid this place! Nothing about it was good. Food was bad, staff were rude (once you were trapped) they attempted to charge very much more than the price given outside. Firstly, the food was INCREDIBLY poor, i.e. the "goulash soup" was like an instant powered "cup soup" with 4 bits of potato and 2 bits of meat in. The main... More

Awful experience. First its not a hotel. The rooms will not be cleaned as expected in every morning. Bathroom area gets flooded. The restaurant in the hotel will make you feel cheated. All in all, never try this hotel. If there is any good about this hotel is its location.

The hotel itself was difficult to find, there were no signs outside. After walking up and down the street several times I spoke to a restaurant who directed me to the Old Monarchia Restaurant and the check in desk is inside. Room itself was good. The bathroom was not well designed but the location was amazing. Short walk to the... More

The Galilei is more a guest house than a hotel. So there is no reception, but a restaurant directly at the hotel, and the nice people there take care of you. We had our own large appartments, fully equipped with each three beds, bathroom, TV (only Hungarian program and CNN), table, chairs, wardrobes - and lots of space. First positive... More

My friend and I were supposed to check in today at the Hotel Galilei and stay for two nights. However, on arrival after a waiting time of over 2 hours, we were informed that there were no rooms left, that the hotel was overbooked and that we would have to find an alternative accommodation. We never received any communication from... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
