We had a double room that was massive - great big deep tub to soak in after long hot days in the summer sun; the staff are lovely - the breakfast was very tasty; The location is superb - 2 mins walk to the market, bank of the Danube; 10 mins to St Gellerts, and 1 mins to the metro. There isn't AC in the rooms which we didnt realise before we got there - the days were 41deg C, and my husband usually cannot sleep in the summer without AC, however we opened the windows, put the fan on and he slept like a baby. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend and re-visit next time in budapest.

Room Tip: we stayed on the first floor in a charming and huge double room on the end. Lovely except it can get...

The location is excellent, the rooms are basic, but clean and functional, the breakfast is typical continental, but the best thing about the hotel was the helpful staff; nothing was too much for them.

We booked too rooms, but as my friend is a light sleeper, they moved him without any quibble, (not that there was any major noise).

The staff helped with excursions, public transport and made a couple of calls for us in Hungarian, before translating the outcome for us.

This is a very plain and simple lodging at a good price.. It would be ready for redevelopment in major western cities but, in Budapest, it may take a little longer. It's entry is quaint and its 1st floor (i.e. one up from the ground) reception is simple. But the service is warm and efficient. The lift works, our 5th floor room was very large and old-fashioned, the bed comfortable, breakfast OK, WiFi free and effective. The hotel is very convenient to most of the city on foot and a couple of blocks away from trams. Budapest is a very interesting, very scenic city. (You buy tram & bus tickets at Tabac stores.)

I've been in Budapest many times and have always enjoyed staying at the Kalvin House. It is in a great location. It is near the big Indoor Market and within walking distance of the Vaci Utca - a well known shopping street. It is also close to a metro stop and a tram line. There are MANY really good restaurants near by as well. Most of the rooms are big and airy - although some of the singles are quite small. They have a nice breakfast and for those who take their computers, there is free wi-fi. The staff is delightful and so helpful. One small note, there is no ai-conditioning so if you are there in the hotter months, keep that in mind.

Room Tip: Inside rooms are quieter. There is no air-conditioning in the hotel so if you are planning a trip f...

Great staff and nice big rooms, located near the Market Hall and the Liberty Bridge which will take you to the Gellert Baths and the hill with the Liberty Monument and the Citadella. My room had the biggest bathroom I've every seen and a little terrace. Anita is great and the breakfast is wonderful. Budapest is a terrific city and this hotel is the best place to stay. Don't think twice about it.

Room Tip: Get room 110; huge bathroom and terrace and close to reception and breakfast.
