The location was great. The rooms were very functional and the service very good -both the reception and breakfast were on good standard. If you need any information,ask Gabor in the reception! I recommend both Budapest and hotel chesscom to anyone who wants to visit a wonderful European capital with less money than expected.

Recommended for those who trevel via airport. Bery close to big shop center, metro and the bus stop ( bus goes directly to the airport ). To the city centre very reasy to reach by metro. Rooms are quite big and clean. Nothing spesial , however everything you need you can find in the room. In general I liked this hotel and will stay next time when I come to Budapest.

great location for a trip to centre of Budapest, its 3min to metro station and shopping centre. Parking for free and good value ! Staff was very helpful and kind. We shared batrhroom with next room, but everything was good - always clean. Maybe its quite noisy at night because hotel is near big crossroads.

The hotel is little bit "dusty" but it's located near metro station and a biiiig mall, it is quite clean, breakfast is really amazing and price is more than fair. There is also a big parking lot behind hotel. Really recommended

We arrived at Hotel Chesscom fairly late on a Saturday night and the staff we great at making us feel relaxed and at home. I had made a mistake with the booking, and the staff were very expedient at dealing with it, and managed to get us a double room for the next night, and a triple for the night we arrived. There was zero fuss and the issue was sorted very quickly.

The location isn't in the centre of Budapest, but the transport links here are brilliant. We did have a bit of confusion when we arrived at where the hotel was but this was quickly sorted. The M3 Metro line runs frequently with the underground going into the centre at least every 10 minutes. For us the location was great because parts of Budapest were a bit too hectic for our liking. The area is safe, despite what some reviews have said, and we experienced no problems whatsoever. There are some homeless people that hang around the KOKI Terminal, a few may ask you for money but will leave you alone and are not violent when you say no. Having said this there seem to be a lot of homeless in most areas of Budapest we visited, and there are certainly no more around the location of the Chesscom than other areas.

The rooms were clean, and basic; for the price you pay to stay you cannot expect much more. The building is a little care worn, but clean, and for us the slightly battered appearance of the Chesscom added to its charm for us. The furniture in the rooms is basic, but functional and the beds were very comfortable and we slept very well.

If you are on a budget, and want a nice budget hotel for your exploration of Budapest, look no further. It has a fantastic team of staff who are so helpful and kind, and the location is ideally inbetween the airport and the centre. A charming place full of Eastern European character!

Room Tip: To find the hotel when you get off the 200E, head through the KOKI terminal shopping centre (away fr...

The hotel is located very convenient. In 5 mins walk from the airport bus stop, which runs from 4.05 am till 11 pm. It was really essential for me because I had an early morning flight.
Also it is close to metro stop, from where you can reach city center in less than 30 mins. The shopping mall with Tesco store is also in 5 mins walk. There is a fridge in the room hence you can keep there the food.
The room was tiny, but clean and tidy. Staff was really helpful. reception is 24 hrs.

Handily situated just a few minutes from the terminus of the 200E bus from the airport, it is easy to get into the city centre from the bus/metro station less than 5 minutes walk away. Very good value rooms and the staff are very helpful and pleasant. However, the air conditioning in our room did not work and because of the very noisy street outside we had to keep the windows shut which made for a very stuffy night. Breakfasts were plentiful with a wide range of food laid on in the continental style. Would certainly stay again - and hope that the air conditioning is working!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook the houses at the front of the hotel.
