“Exceeded expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Booked this hotel as part of a package deal for the weekend with Easyjet and so expected it to be very cheap. The hotel location is excellent, most central attractions in walkable distance and not at all far from the metro line. The room we had was on the third floor and was spacious and clean, couldn't ask for more, staff very friendly and helpful, communal dining area for breakfast quite dated but the breakfast made up for it. All in all a very good value hotel in a great location, would highly recommend

The hotel is ok, it takes a bit to figure out how to get there if you are traveling with public transportation ( a lot of construction works arround - streets blocked ). The room ok, well insulated - no problem with the exterior noise. Very good position, in walking distance from almost all the interesting sites.
Strange restaurant for breakfast.

The prices were reasonable, the view from the window was very nice, the porter was very helpful. But i did not find an air conditioner at all, very strange. And I do not like to write more than I have already said but as far as I can see I have to count up to 200 character minimum bla bla bla (smile)

Room Tip: With the view to the river!

The hotel was really nice, breakfast was fantastic, as well as the view from the window overlooking the river. The price was low for a room with such a view. The only thing was the noise outside because of the reconstruction works on the roads. The hotel is really worth visiting.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view onto a river are really worth booking

Dear ’Agata B’,

Thank you for choosing City Hotel Mátyás and also for sharing your positive opinion.
Reconstruction workings are still in process mainly on the opposite side of the road, the wider sidewalk around the hotel has been already finished. Bigger and modern car park awaits our guest under the Elizabeth Bridge soon.

Hope to have the chance to accommodate you again in the near future.

Best regards,

A well-maintained property with an excellent restaurant on premises in an unbeatable location in the heart of Budapest. The room was clean and excellent value. As is true almost everywhere in the city there were street repairs and work on a new tram line beside the hotel, but since we were away during the day, we did not mind it. Good public transportation nearby. We hope to stay here again when next in Budapest.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet location. We were on an inner courtyard so heard no city noises.

We were on a trip to Croatia and Budapest was the place to take a rest in the middle of distance from Warsaw. Right now (August 2013), many streets in Budapest are closed (second line of metro is being built) and it is extremely hard to park nearby. I spent 30 minutes looking for the space (should have been some info on the website where guests can park). The hotel is old and first impression is not good (dark hallway, very small and old lift, cigaretts on the stairs). I booked room 503 - with a view on the river (the view on the river is very nice, but in front of hotel new road is being built - so I had mixed impression - noise, trucks, workers). Generally, location is perfect, should be a litlle bit cleaner, the furnishings should be repaired or replaced - I know everything costs, but afterwards three stars would have been more deserved. The computer from lobby remembers good times of "Wolfenstein" if you know what I mean. Breakfasts were good and tasty - waiter saying "hello" in different languages - great idea! Air condition works good, wifi also - no problem with connection. As I said, first impression is not good, but the more time we spent there the better impression we had. Hotel has a great potential - only needs some money to be invested in. The price in comparison to the standard should be lower (maybe until the work near hotel is done?). For those who are staying for a short time in Budapest I can recommend that hotel - the location could not be better.

Room Tip: 503 - great view on the river, but also on the bridge (could be noisy, especially in the morning wit...

The building shows its age (a century), and the non-renovated (yet) section, where I stayed, has awfully bad common areas (stinking elevator, ancient electric cables on view, poor installation of movement-sensitive electric lights, sullen interior patios and iron-gridded windows). The Matyas Cave where breakfast is served is not up to the task of warming us for a day of work or hollidaying; it speaks high of a past age when it was used for merry festivities, and is able to seat a couple hundreds people. If you keep in mind that it is a 3 star hotel, it is good value for money. Piers for the Danude cruises, departure stations for the (competitive) hop-on-hop-off bus tours, dozens of restaurants, thai massages and money exchange offices within a radius of about 200 meters... The great (positive) surprise is the quality of the beds, and the cleanliness of the rooms and the bathrooms, and their maintenance.
