“good location in budapest”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

The hotel is on a quiet street right near a main pedestrian shopping street, vaci utca. We walked everywhere or took the Metro and tram all over. The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast was fresh but average. Pleasant, helpful staff. There are lots of restaurants, cafes nearby. I recommend the hotel.

Well what can I say more.
The room is spacious and bright and clean.
The reception is manned 24hours so security assured.
Good breakfast.
Very quiet location for good night sleep. It is close to metro / market / Gellert Bath / restaurants / shops.
You can borrow hair dryer and laptop from reception. Wifi you can use in your room anyway. And communal PC at reception area.
You can rent a bike free of charge and free ticket to botanical garden if you fancy.

The only dislike for me was the bed - a little bit hard for my liking - but some people prefer that I guess? and there was no bedside lamp...

Apart from that, it was perfect stay!
I would definitely come back this hotel again!

My wife and I stayed at the Peregrinus Hotel in Budapest for three nights. The hotel is one of those hidden gems that is almost hidden down a narrow street. The room was on the third floor, was spacious with two double beds in one room and a single bed in the living room plus a foldout futon (even though we simply asked for two double beds). The room was exceptionally quiet. The hotel only served a breakfast buffet (no other meals), which was rather meager in what was offered but was nevertheless okay. The entrance is always locked and the desk attendant rings you in. The desk attendants were very friendly and helpful with advice on the city. The hotel is located within blocks of the famous Central Market Hall (Nagy Vasarcsarnok) and within blocks of a Metro stop. At the end of the street was a connecting street with numerous cafes and shops.

My cousin and I stayed here for 3 nights on a 5-country tour of Eastern Europe. I spent literally hours researching hotels in each city, and I was very pleased with my choice in Peregrinus ELTE. They had a little snafu with our rate- they gave us one that was too low, however they honored it because they had to, and I had copies of all of my e-mail correspondence with the hotel. Even if we had not gotten the cheaper rate, it would have been worth the price to stay there.

The location was great-- within 5 minutes to the underground station, about 10 minutes walk to Raday Utca (a main restaurant street), right off of Vaci Utca, a main tourist street (but it's on a side street so it's nice and quiet).
The staff was incredibly helpful- they got us booked on a sightseeing tour that started within 10 minutes after we checked in, got the taxi to pick us up immediately, etc.

Breakfast was typical Eastern European fare- cold cuts, breads, spreads, hard boiled eggs, juices/coffee/tea, very friendly staff taking care of it all. The "luggage room" is a tiny closet in the back of the hotel that is easily accessible by anyone, but we didn't have any issues.

The hotel has an elevator, which was nice given we were on a higher floor (top floor, with skylights and everything!). The front door is always locked and you push a button so the desk staff views you on the monitor and opens the door for you. Free WiFi was great as well!

**WARNING ABOUT BUDAPEST: Cabbies are crooks! I was quoted by the hotel that a taxi from Keleti train station should be 2,000 HUF, and when we got there, the cab drivers all wanted 4,000 HUF! Even if the meter is running, they fudge it!!**


I definitely enjoyed my stay here and would stay again!

The hotel is located in a quiet, but central neighborhood - very convenient. The building is nice and clean. Single rooms are small, but good enough for the price. Breakfast was ok. The lady who takes care of breakfast was sweet, warm, and lovely. Most staff at the front desk are friendly, pleasant, and nice, except one girl, who always doesn't smile, which effects others' vacation mood a little.

The Peregrinus is a good 3* hotel that cannot be faulted for its location. Its just around the corner from Vaci street and really ideal for a weekend break. Its very affordable and the staff are very pleasant and polite. Rooms range in size and are basic but fine. Breakfast is continental with a fair selection. I travelled with a group of 15 and we found the hotel ideal for our needs.

Just back from a week at this hotel. Well situated off Vaci utca but in a quiet street. Plenty restaurants and cafes nearby and close to Metro stations. Very comfortable room, lots of space but shower room small. Would certainly stay there again.
