“Fantastic find, next to the metro, clean and friendly.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I read the reviews on here before I booked this hotel and went with the best ones. I was right to do so, I stayed 4 nights as a solo traveller at the beginning of December and was really happy with my choice. I needed a base for exploring the city but also somewhere I felt comfortable being on my own. This did both, the staff were friendly the rooms are looked after well if maybe a little dated in some areas but nothing to moan about. The location is fantastic for getting to all areas of the city via the metro I got a 72 hour travel card from the 'blue container' on the corner and it was very easy to work out. The entrance to this hotel can be a little off putting when first seen but go with it and you will be pleasantly surprised when you reach the reception. The hotel is kept really warm and though there is a building site outside currently where changes are happening with the metro it doesn't look great but it really didn't cause any issues during my stay. Breakfast is a reasonably simple continental but there was always plenty of it. Sleep quality was good but not excellent other guests were not a problem with noise but the walls are thin in this hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a convenient hotel for exploring the city.

Stayed with a couple of friends for a night, and overall everything was good. The staff were nice and friendly, the rooms were clear, and they let us check out a hour later than we were supposed to, without any trouble.
Advice: ask for a room on the sixth floor, they are newer and better than the rest.

I stayed with a friend for three nights from 17 November 2012. Check in was smooth and rooms were reasonable. The area is under renovation as Budapest's 4th Metro line is under construction which does not gives nice look. Though hotel is just almost opposite train/Metro Station of Keleti but it is not that easy to locate hotel because of construction work going on. Once you enter the building approach/pathway is great and beautiful. Hotel reception is on 5th floor, rooms are recently refurbished with LCD TV. Though bathrooms are small but very clean and recently refurbished.

Location is ideal for taking Metro 2 red line. After 23:30 you can either take buses or walk down straight for 10 minutes towards Blaha Lujza Metro station where trams available 24 hours.

There are some good small restaurants in the adjacent streets i.e. Karim Grill (from hotel turn left and again turn left) which sells doner Kebabs for FR490 (£1.38) and some Pizza shops. There is also a bakery on the same street (from hotel turn left cross the street, after two buildings).

Free Wi-fi is available but signal is strong on 5th floor. There is also a computer terminal with internet at 5th floor which is free to use.
Breakfast was good but no fruits. Later we learned that Hungarians do not like fruits much.

My partner is generally skeptical but even he was happy with this hotel. The location was great, the hotel staff exceptionally friendly and most spoke English so there was no issue communicating. The room was good sized with all we needed. The free breakfast was a good continental breakfast with eggs, Croissants, cereal, yogurt, bread, jams, Nutella, lunch meats and cheeses and the best part was the cappuccino/espresso machine. The room was clean enough though not quite spotless and the hotel hallways (though not the rooms) still smells like smoke. But overall we were happy and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Few rooms overlook the city. Avoid room 616 unless you are a smoker. The staff smokes just outside t...

Located right next to the metro stop means you'll be in the city centre in under 5 minutes. Good selection for breakfast and friendly helpful staff on reception. We ate in central Budapest each night as we didnt explore the neighbourhood round the hotel and it suited us better.

Rooms were clean and typical for a European 3 star hotel. Only down side: Road noise can be heard if you are at the front of the hotel and there is a large amount of building work right outside with starts early! Really can't grizzle at £24 a night though. Does what it say on the tin.

Baross hotel is a very nice hotel in middle of Budapest. For very reasonable price you get service like in 5* hotel. From reservation over e-mail through welcoming and concierge everything was on high level. Everyday service on reception was outstanding specialy from lady Zsuzsi. In this category of hotels more then perfect.

From the outside it looks like you've made the wrong choice, but inside is another matter. Located on the fifth and sixth floors of the building and overlooking a beautiful courtyard, the Baross Hotel is a clean and friendly place to stay. We found the bedrooms clean and tidy and with very good bathroom facilities that appear to have been recently upgraded. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast - inclusive of the price - was as good a continental breakfast as is available in hotels costing a lot more.

The only negative is that although the Baross is well located for getting around, and is very close to the Keleti Railway Station with its great facade, the area itself is currently undergoing extensive regeneration work, so expect the inconvenience of hoardings, scaffolding and dust.

But maybe this why such a lovely hotel comes at an even lovelier price?
