“Reasonable hotel - Reasonably Priced!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is a basic budget hotel in a good location, 15min walk from train station, 2min walk from Metro, 15min walk to the Danube and within walking distance to most attractions. The rooms are of decent size, beds are great however a/c not the best and not the greatest of views on offer.
Staff all very helpful.

Room Tip: Beds very comfy, no great views on offer in any rooms.

My first time at this ibis hotel and I was quite impressed. While the lobby and entrance is rather small, my room was excellent! Roomy by ibis standards, very clean room, comfortable bed, flat screen TV, counter space and a built-in seating area as well. Bathroom was bright and clean and had a very nice modern shower stall. Also, the room had great air conditioning, which is always appreciated.

Location of the hotel is very central. Metro and trams are a half block up the street, there is a Spar grocery store across the street, Burger King right next door, and a McDonalds 1 block away. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.

The only negative I have is the breakfast. Don't bother with it. The day I was there they had nothing but some cold cuts, cheese and a little fruit and coffee for over 9 Euro. That's outrageous! I didn't have breakfast there and went down the street for coffee and a pastry. You could do better at Burger King next door or McDonalds on the corner for a breakfast sandwich or scrambled eggs and coffee for about 2 Euros. There are also lots of pastry shops around (several can be found at downstairs metro stations) and coffee shops everywhere.

Ibis Budapest City is a great hotel usually with very good rates. Highly recommend it!

Situated in a back street just around the corner from the Metro and trams. Was very clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely one of the better IBIS hotels. I find it odd that the hotel advertising on the outside says 'We were expecting you' but I satill had to give my name :)

We had a great time in Budapest thanks in a large part to the staff at the IBIS Budapest City. Norbert provided us with a lot of simple details that can be easily overlooked. e.g museums are closed on Mondays etc. One of the manager's Maria Kiss was equally kind and helpful. You could really tell that they wanted you to enjoy the city and our check in was really quick, as it should be when you are tired! All of the staff seemed to be well informed with details on local bars and restaurants. I think the training must be good at this hotel. I personally think that it really helps to have some local staff, otherwise guests just feel like a commodity.
At the IBIS Budapest City, I can honestly say I felt like it was like a 4 star Mercure hotel...thanks to the wonderful staff....I hope the Accor group commend you on your excellent service. Thanks for everything and we hope to see you again some day!

Room Tip: There is an ATM very close and Tesco express is a five minute walk!

We visited Budapest around Easter 2013 for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Ibis. Staff were very friendly, the breakfast was great and the rooms were comfortable - there wasn't much of a view, but you've got the whole city to see for that. I would thoroughly recommend if you are looking for something as a base that isn't going to eat up your spending money!

The place is in the heart of Budapest, near the Blaha Lujza square. It is in a very good location: there are many restaurants, cafes, pubs, and places for party nearby.
The hotel itself is very clean, the staff very friendly, helpful, speaking international languages. The breakfast is included, you have many-many choices in choosing what to have at breakfast.
They also have a bar open at the evenings.

I must say, I was very pleased by this hotel, best hotel-experience I have ever had.
