This hotel is quite comfortable, with a lot of services, but everything was nothing more than acceptable, expect for the location, that is about 30 minutes far from the centre of the city, and for the staff, that is very nice and kind. 6/10.

The hotel is little under the average rate of a hotel. The positive thing is that it is very close to the blue metro line - Nepliget station. But I selected "average" for location as the district looks like a ghetto - no shops or anything nearby! The breakfast was good, the sheets on the beds were clean, but there were no shampoo and hairdryer in the bathroom. As a whole, the hotel is good for 2-3 nights and if you plan to be outside and visit the sightseeing in the city.

Room Tip: I was in a room with a view to the street which is very noisy all night long and could not open the...

Hotel Platanus offers good value for your money and is located walking distance from the underground of Budapest. The staf is friendly. One remark is that the aircon of our room was not working well.

That weekend, all the hotels in Budapest were overbooked and that's the only reason we chose Platanus.

The best thing about the hotel - it's very close to the international bus station (Nepliget)-about 5 minutes on foot. Also, there is a good connection with city center and other parts of Budapest, during the night and day (night bus station is very close). The receptionists are polite and their English is good.

But...

The building of the hotel is outdated, it desperately needs renovation, both inside and outside. Our double room was very small, not so clean, with strange mattresses covered by blankets, and without a telephone. Only the bathroom was pretty new and ok.

The strongest impression was breakfast-it was the poorest breakfast we’ve ever had in a hotel! It was difficult to find anything to eat among small quantities of cheap salami, smoked cheese, jam and muesli. No eggs, yoghurt, fresh fruits or salads. Thanks God they had coffee and tea.

Overall-if you need quick and cheap solution (we payed 65 euros for 2 nights, 2 persons, including breakfast) and intend to use your room only for a sleep, you can choose hotel Platanus. If you want to feel more pleasant in such a beautiful city, don’t go there. We won’t be back for sure.

I don't know of any cheaper hotel in Budapest and conveniently close to a subway station, even though I did some serious research. If you simply need a place to sleep, have a quick shower in and not bother about getting out early in the morning for a basic breakfast, then Platanus is just perfect. Some of the staff are nice and friendly, but others are plain yokels (or maybe we happened to bump into their hangoverish side...) Oh, and if you arrive there in the evening, bring food and drinks with you, because the only other option is a gas station or ghastly McDonald's a mile or so away. The neighbourhood is utterly depressing, and there's nothing you can really do in the hotel, so my advice is to simply use it as a rest point. (Central Budapest is superb anyway, so why waste your time there?) No room service, mind you, and no minibar. They don't even bother to tempt you, so cheap's the word there and cheap it is!

Room Tip: A few rooms have a kingsize bed, but most of them are just two single juniors separated by a nightst...

If you want a hotel just to sleep over night and cheap stay, than this is it, expect no more than that. Reception stuff is kind and wanted to provide valued info.
rooms are clean with somehow old sheets, toilet is fine. However, noise is notable cause of heavy traffic down to the outside avenue. my room was on ground flour and not so secured,
Wi fi internet is not working in room, and only available in hotel lobby (it was unavailable here too, for 2 days which is unacceptable).
Breakfast is below average, just the cheapest salami and cheese, butter and marmalade and cornflakes and that's all, is it a hotel of 3 stars!?

It is in hood location, near Nepliget metro station (5 mins walk) and near bus station.
