“Great Location”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Perfect location for sightseeing, at the bottom of Castle Hill and 2 minutes from the Chain Bridge. Excellent breakfast, friendly staff, and clean and quiet rooms. The decor is a little outdated, but you get value for money. The bar right outside is a plus, as is the Pater Marcus restaurant just down the steps near the hotel entrance.

Fabulous quiet hotel just over Chain Bridge at the Buda side close to the palace, fishermans bastion and gellert hill. Ideally located for sightseeing, 10 minute walk into Pest and about 30 minutes to Margaret Island. The hotel room was clean and of average size. There is a very handy bar just outside the hotel and a couple of eating places closeby serving a broad range of food. Up the hill towards Fishermans Bastion there are eateries serving local dishes.

We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly return. Staff very polite and helpful. Breakfast standard European.

The best part about this place is the location. It is very central to Buda and Pest, on the Buda side of the river. It is only 1 block off the river right next to the Chain bridge. As far as the hotel itself goes, the rooms are quite small, but fairly well kept and they have air conditioning for the hot Budapest nights. The breakfast was good. Seems like a very good place for the price.

We spend last weekend at the Carlton hotel in Budapest, well situated near the chain bridge, nice personnel, quiet, and close to many touristic interest points.We also experienced the hop on hop off buses very useful to see many nice places and cheap, include two travels by boat on the Danube, one gulyas and one beer too.

Room Tip: Take the 7-th floor!

Found the location to be great, although located on the less commercialised side of Budapest, it was quiet and still in close proximity to Chain Bridge, linking to the main city sites on the opposite side of the River Danube. Also conveniently located for the Castle District, with good links on many of the tourist buses. Staff were friendly, the hotel room was a little small but very comfortable, with a great standard of bathroom. Breakfast was good and the internet and WiFi facilities were excellent.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights of a weekend in July. The staff at reception were very helpful whenever possible. The rooms were slightly 'tired' but were quiet, and had everything really that was needed. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty, really set us up for the day.
The location was fabulous as it was very near the Castle Hill in Buda, but also close to the Chain Bridge for the Pest side, yet remained quiet and peaceful.
This isn't the most glamorous or modern of hotels, and if you are after a romantic, luxury break then there are probably better options. But for a base from which to explore, enjoy the quiet but be near to many attractions, it really did the job. We were also allowed to keep our room until 1930 on the day we checked-out for an extra 20 Euros.
