“Security Deposit”
Reviewed March 22, 2011

your hotel looks nice, but when I come back and see amount of monoy that are reserved as security deposit i was disaffected and very angry. In reception I receive information that security deposit will be the same as price for hotel, but unfortunately it was ~1,5-2 times more.

IBIS City has great location and is within walking distance of majority of tourist places and shopping centers. It has a garage in the basement (15 EUR/night), so you can park and enjoy your stay without a car.

Metro station is only a few steps away.

Free wireless is great!

Wizz Airlines did a great job both in and out. The taxi transfer of 19 Euros both ways was fine. Was somewhat concerned over the hotel but couldn't be more pleased. Verty friendly staff and even if the breakfast is ov erpriced still very good. Only downside was the strange single duvet on a double bed. Another single in the wardrob e saved the day. Very well positioned and a wonderful time.

Great location for someone who comes to Budapest like me, that means by train. Right between the train station and the main atractions of Budapest. Walking distance to almost to all the city most interesting atractions. Quite and plesent place. In my opinion good value for money.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights in December. About a 20 minute walk from the train station and easy to find. Good location, only 10 to 15 minutes from the Danube.
Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Well equipped clean bathroom. Staff very helpful and friendly. Wasn't particularly impressed with the breakfasts, not much choice even by continental standards.
If you want a cheap, no frills hotel in central Pest then this is fine. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Nice hotel, perfect for one night. Rooms very clean, staff very friendly. The only negative thing is the temperature of the room, it was kind of cold. And there was no fridge in the room.

Considering that we paid for four days and got the fifth one gratis, and knowing that Ibis hotels usually feature modest level of comfort, we didn't really expect much. However, what we saw was a really nice, brand new hotel, where you have everything you basically need at your disposal. And its position is probably one of the best in town, with Oktogon and Heroes Square easily reachable within minutes by public transport, and Vorosmarty Ter on the other side only a few metro stops away.

The rooms are neat, spacious and modern, the bathrooms clean and tidy, and everything is tidied daily. The staff is rather friendly and speaks much better English than most Hungarians. They really do tend to fulfill all your wishes, which makes this hotel even more recommendable.

The only thing we lacked was a mini bar and a hair dryer in the room, but everything is resolved easily because you can get a hair dryer at the reception desk.

All in all, excellent value for money, great position, very high quality of service and comfort. Definitely a warm recommendation!
