“Clean, Good Location and Great Service!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Just arrived back from a short break in Budapest and had a great time. Reception staff were great and very helpful, room was basic but clean and was in a perfect location. We stayed in room 114 which was on the side of the hotel, can imagine it might be a bit noisier if staying in one of the rooms on the front. Room did get quite hot during the night as I don't think the air con gets fully switched on until May. Had to open the windows one night as was struggling to breathe and we soon realised it was better to be too hot than completely deaf from the trams all night! We didn't opt for breakfast as there is so much variety on your doorstep. Would highly recommend if you just want somewhere cheap and cheerful for a few sightseeing days in Budapest!

Dear Valued Guest "laney87",

We are glad to had a chance to welcome you in our hotel and you had a nice stay.

You have asked a question that is annually raised to which we would like to react to. Indeed, the air condition which only has a cooling function in our hotels is turned on around the middle or end of May until the end of September or the middle of October.

It depends on the weather. The weather was cold and was snowing in the beginning of April and now at the end of this month we almost have a summer type of weather. The conversion of this is totally personal, it is hard to fit to the different needs of our guests.

We always try to give the best service to our guests although air condition is going to function a bit later.

Thank you for your review!

Best regards,

The City Hotel Ring is in an excellent location being very close to the Nyugati train station and near a wide choice of eating places. We arrived earlier than our check-in time and the staff was very accommodating. We stayed only one night at the hotel but the room was fine and the price was right. We chose not to have breakfast included.
The hotel was easy to find and in a fairly busy area. The proximity to the train station was the real bonus for us and we would stay there again for that reason.

The hotel is in a fab location, staff extremely helpful and friendly. Very good value for money, we had a large room with lots of storage and all the necessary equipment including a fridge I would recommend for a cheap, basic hotel in easy access to shops, leisure and nightlife

Well located, clean place to crash in Budapest. Extremely helpful staff! Very good buffet breakfast. Pet friendly. Will use again for another trip to Budapest. Can be a bit noisy from the main street but otherwise comfy & good sleep. No wifi in rooms but some have LAN. There is also a computer at the reception free of charge.

Room Tip: away from the main street

Stayed for the third time mid-October. Room as clean as ever, staff as helpful as usual and breakfast as predictable as in previous years. If you are on a city visit you have to be prepared for lots of walking and Budapest is no different. However, the location of this hotel is excellent for getting across the Danube, getting to Margaret Island or getting to the shops, bars or restaurants. For the money spent, this hotel is great value

Stayed there from 29th Sept till the 6th Oct 2012 on business. It is a basic, clean well run hotel with good sized rooms. The breakfast is a bit predictable but overall the Hotel is really great value for money. Very well located and on the number 4 & 6 tram route which runs 24hrs. The only draw back is the lack of a lift and the street noise if you are at the front of the hotel.

Room Tip: Go for first floor at the back or side of the hotel

We stayed here with my husband and 3 year old son for 2 days. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always smiling. The room was clean, comfortable and really big. Air conditioning, tv etc. were all working. There is no elevator, but this is mentioned in the hotel description. The location is perfect to discover the city, it is close to Margit island and close to the Westend shopping center too. I made reservation through booking.com at an excellent price. All in all we were satisfied and would definitely go back there again.
