“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

My husband&I just came back from a visit from Budapest where we've stayed for two nights in this hotel. It was very clean, the staff is very polite and helpfull. Rooms are big enough. Be sure to ask for a room on the garden side and you will have no problems regarding the rather busy traffic. Beds are a bit too soft. There are smoking rooms available. The hotel has a garage (we parked our car free of charge). Breakfast is good, not much variety but does the job. Nearby is a pretty good restaurant (even the staff described it as "just ok"). The location is not pretty but its close enough. With bus lines 8 and 112 you'll be in the city centre within a few minutes. Btw in the hotel you can pay both in HUF and EUR. Btw it was great value for money but let me emphasize that we had a coupon from a discounter webpage so we paid less then 100 EUR for 2 nights (double bedroom). On the hotel's webpage I saw much higher prices (140 EUR/night) which would be too much for this sort of accomodation.

Room Tip: Ask for the garden side! It's much quieter.

Dear LeilahZagreb,

Let me thank you for your thorough comment about our hotel! I am happy that you found our staff helpful and polite and you share it with other travellers. You booked a package with us that included garage use as well. Usualy we charge 10 eur/night for the underground garage use, which is secured and is available for hotel guests only. Parking on the street (in front and next to the hotel) is free of charge. Let me mention that our front rooms are also pretty quiet, as they are equipped with soundproof windows. Of course garden view rooms are 100% noise-free.

We are very much looking forward to see you in Hotel Mediterran again!

Best regards,

Attila

staff were very polite and helpful room was cleaned every day the only downside was the busy road outside.
reception staff were always helpful when asked for information.
i would still go back to this hotel
and the restaurant just about 50 metres along the road had good food and nice staff.

Room Tip: 5th floor if you are a smoker or 4th floor less noise from the traffic

Dear sandy8383,

Thank you for sharing useful information and your experience about our hotel. Kind of you to mention the nice service you had from our staff! About the location: the hotel is 2 km-s from Váci utca/pedestrian street. Buses 8 and 112 stop at the corner (150 metres) and it is a 10 minutes ride to get to the centre. Thank you again for your kind words and visit.

You are very welcome again in our hotel in the nearest future!

Best regards from Budapest,

Attila

Hotel is located 10 minutes of walk from Elisabeth bridge in Buda part of the Budapest, or 10 minutes from Buda castle. Rooms are clean, and spacious with standard equipment (TV, mini bar, WiFi in room), only thing that I would change is a pillow (they are to thin IMHO). In the basement there is a garage and sauna with Jacuzzi. Breakfast was also standard only my wife was expecting croissant (but I din't :) ).
But in my opinion best value of this hotel is their staff. They are professional, helpful, well educated and they all speaks foreign languages despite the fact that they are young.

My partner and I recently spent 4 nights here and would defintely recommend it.
The rooms are basic, the equivalent of an Ibis or Premier Inn, functional and very clean. The hotel is quiet, peaceful and well located.
Based in Buda, you can get the 8 or 1112 bus from outside the hotel straight into the centre of Pest. Alternatively, if you fancy a walk, the Metro station is about 15 mins away. Castle Hill and the Citadella are walkable.
There is a petrol station across the road which we found really handy when we wanted to grab some snacks. There is a great pub on the corner up from the hotel which sells amazing food, great beer and is very cheap indeed.
The staff were excellent. They really went out of thier way to make us feel welcome and were very helpful (especially the dark haired younger chap!). This hotel is a great base from which to explore an incredible city. Budapest is a must do. So much history, culture, great food, beer(!) and people.

I only have 2 criticisms. Firstly, there aren't many places near the hotel to eat. You do need to go into Pest or up to Castle Hill for resturants. This shouldn't put you off though.
The second is very minor. The TV only has American CNN!A bit of BBC News or ITV would be good when you're having your downtime!Although, German "Pop Idol" certainly provided a few laughs.

Room Tip: Off the road!

Dear KT1801,

Thank you for your praising words! I appreciate your full and detailed review so much! Our staff will be happy to hear that they could make your stay convenient! The guy at the reception you mention might be Wolfi. I will not miss the opportunity to pass him your friendly words! Thank you!

About Tv channels: it is true in room we have CNN and no BBC, but in the bar area our clients are welcome to enjoy more than 100 channels, including BBC and many more.

I am proud to read your nice words about our capital city, Budapest, encouraging other travellers to visit Hungary! Thank you for that!

Hope to hear from you soon and meet again in Hotel Mediterran!

Best regards,

Attila

The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful , my biggest gripes, traffic noise due to its location and the beds, why oh why do foreign hotels class and consider two tiny single beds to be equivalent to a double, I booked a double room, on arrival I was given a room with two tiny singles, so small and uncomfortable I had to ask for a change of room at one in the morning to one with a double bed, the staff obliged and gave me a room on the front of the hotel adjacent the extremely busy main road and surprise! surprise! the double bed was no more than two of the tiny singles pushed together and as they have a wood surround still no better, and to make it worse not a double duvet, but two extremely small and thin single duvet's, to conclude not a very pleasant experience.

Dear Steve W,

Thank you for your review and for sharing your experience about the hotel. I sadly noticed that the sleep quality did not fulfill your expectations. Although my colleague provided you a double room, in that room the 2 single beds were pushed together, and it is true there is a 7-8 mm gap between the 2 beds. We have some rooms with classic double mattress bed as well, but those rooms were occupied by couples. We usualy give these rooms to them, and single bedded rooms for solo travellers. However, I make the necessary steps and will set some more double matress rooms in the near future.

As you mentioned you were satisfied with our staff. Let me thank you for mentioning it besides the negative things you had to experience.

Wishing you all the best and thank you again for your constructive opinion!

Nice hotel with a good bus connection downtown (bus 8 or 112 just round the corner). Clean rooms and bathrooms. Friendly English speaking staff, willing to inform and help. Good breakfast. The only negative remark is the fact that smoking is allowed in the hotel lobby, which is rather annoying for non-smokers.

Dear johan2712,

Your positive review is so important for us! Thank you for sharing your opinion with all the Tripadvisor fans!

You mention smoking in the lobby. Let me inform you that from April 2012 in all hotels in Budapest will not be allowed to smoke in the lobby, restaurant and common areas. It will prevent non smokers from unpleasant cigarette smoke. Some smoking rooms will still be available for smokers.

Thank you for your visit and your comment! Looking forward to seeing you again in Hotel Mediterran!

Kind regards,

Attila
