I've just spent 4 nights in this super hotel. It's in an excellent location, so close to everywhere you'd want to visit. The reception staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful, with a relaxed, informal manner and a great command of English. Our room was large and well equipped, the shower clean and modern and you can get a hairdryer free of charge from reception. I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: You might need a pin or a bit of blu-tak as our curtains didn't quite close properly!

Great location. Walking distance to any sightseeing. Vaci just 2 minutes walk. Nice rooms, but old shower. No sound isolation inside and outside. Very friendly staff. No elevator. Very expensive restaurant. But next door Irish pub was excellent. The hotel is old , but very clean. Hairdryer on reception.

Dear Guest ‘Anna I’,

The cleanliness got the second highest score on the rating summary thanks to the housekeeping department’s efforts which makes us very proud.

My friend and I had a 3 night stay at this hotel just after Christmas, the hotel is fairly basic but the cleanliness is very good, staff are friendly and very helpful and rooms are large and warm. Breakfast could be better and therefore for 2 mornings we went to the restaurant just up the road for a super breakfast, hotel is well situated, quiet and 2 minutes walk to main shopping area. I would recommend this hotel and would use again if visiting budapest.

The hotel is centrally located with multiple metro stations nearby and very easy to get to from the airport.

The staff is very helpful. We forgot to bring a British socket adaptor and it wasn't easy to find one in any high street shops; the hotel receptionist was more than happy to lend us the adaptor to use for the entire duration of the trip.

The room is of good size with high ceiling and clean. As the hotel was located on a quiet pedestrian road, you can hardly hear any street noise at night. We found the mattresses to be on the hard side and thinner than what we'd have liked.

By and large we would recommend this hotel to those who visit Budapest on a short trip.

Had a good 5 nights at the Pilvax at the beginning of December. Comfortable, warm and clean with a very friendly and helpful reception staff. Also very cheerful and friendly in the bistro at breakfast time too. Good sized room in a good location. My second visit to Budapest but first time here - and I would stay here next time we come.
