Carlton Hotel Budapest
Ranked #81 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I'm writing because having just stayed here, I can vouch that, unlike some of the comments below, our room was spotlessly clean, the linen was spotlessly clean and freshly ironed, the loos in the public area were spotlessly clean...... There was an extremely well-stocked breakfast buffet. The staff at the front reception were polite and helpful. The rooms are on the small side - but we didn't come to Budapest to hang about in a hotel room: this is a great hotel if you want somewhere central from which to explore, safe and clean, and a hearty breakfast. Would happily stay here again.

We found the hotel to be much more than we had expected for the price with a clean and modern twin room which contained tea/coffee making facilities with teabags/coffee/sugar/sweeteners replenished daily, a mini-bar, safe, and television. The room was cleaned daily if we left the sign on the door and towels replaced. Breakfast was varied and of a good overall quality with staff replenishing supplies and trying to meet all needs, when I mentioned that I did not want scrambled eggs with bacon they went and made me a plate of plain scrambled eggs. Reception staff were very helpful with directions and suggestions for places of interest to visit. Location wise the place is perfect, up a cute little cobbled street on the very quaint and historic Buda side of the Danube yet within easy walking distance of Pest and all attractions.
I would only suggest that the shower in our room was not very powerful and also it might be better to supply pot cups rather than plastic ones in the rooms, however, these are just trifles.
A wonderful time was had at this hotel and I can only thank all the staff for their help and professionalism.
Room 102 - 20th - 24th Nov.

Room Tip: There is an elevator so all rooms are easy to access, ours was perfect on the first floor.

Quiet hotel, close to the most. A 30 min walk and you have reaced a lot of the things you just must see. The breakfast got it all. The service was good, helpt us with ordering taxi and told the price. Our room nice and clean.

We spent 4 days here on a city trip.
The hotel is located in a smalle street close to the chain Bridge, connecting the center of Pest with Buda, very central. The staff at the reception was very helpfull and friendly, they checked opening hours of museums, arranged visits etc.
Breakfast was richly served in buffet, with lots of choice. Rooms are clean and modern, bathrom tough is rather small bur fully equiped.
For us , being on a city trip it was a very good and pleasant stay.

the hotel is located in a good spot BUT the room was not clean (the carpet had stinks all over and dast was a friend) and the reception service is the worst ever. The first day i asked for a taxi to go to my office and i paid double the price that i paid on my way back in the afternoon. When i asked the reception why's that they start telling me about traffic and distance and i said guys it was the same in the morning as it was in the afternoon. For the next 4 days i asked them to call my prefered taxi companies in Budapest and every morning and afternoon i was still paying half of the price that i paid using the taxi company that the hotel called. I will never choose that hotel again

We liked this hotel primarily due to excellent location - quiet and tucked away but within very easy reach of the Castle, Chain Bridge (and hence Pest), excellent budget restaurants - but also breakfast within the price and good, comfortable beds. The windows open so you are not dependent on air conditioning. It's certainly not a luxury venue, but that's not what we paid for. The decor is rather central European (almost 1980s). Tea-making facilities in the room but rather limited selection - coffee that comes complete with milk and sugar in one packet, Earl Grey tea. Take your own tea bags, powdered milk, etc. No lunch and evening meals at all but very good budget restaurants on Fő utca just below the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors, especially on the North side have a better view (Danube, parliament and t...

Lokated near the Chain Bridge and the Palace. A short walk to Tram and Underground stations. good and rich breakfast buffet. The best way to reach the hotel from the airport is using the Airport shuttle service. A very convenient and low priced door to door transportation.

Room Tip: If you like a quiet room - ask for one at the back side!
