“Feel the history in Budapest”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Astoria hotel opened 1914. It still has similar glory but of course time has done its work. Atmosphere here is nice, rooms are comfortable and clean. Service is very good, especially in the lobby. Elevators are slow and may feel uncomfortable in case you are in a hurry. Free internet available only in the lobby, if you want to use it alo in the room you need to pay extra. You can get Budapest Cards from front desk but prepare to pay in cash only. Aircondition and showers work well.

Room Tip: 5th floor provides small balconies. Less traficc noise rooms are on the side street side e.g. 514...

It was so clean and comfortable the bed was exceptional We stayed at a few places on our trip in Central Europe and Astoria was the most pleasant. We had a quite room on the side street. The receptionist offered a more expensive room with better view but iur decision was to keep our quiet one. We would not stay in a five star hotel, Astoria is simple but friendly and perfectly located.

The hotel is well located in the heart of Pest. We leave early in the morning for the training sessions and come back at noon for lunch. The matches start early in the afternoon. So we just walk to the venue and back to the hotel, very easy. The ladies are very busy here with cleaning of our rooms, they do an extremely hard work and we are very satisfied with them. The rooms could be more spacious for two men. We will return next year to win the trophy.

The Hotel is well situated for shopping, touring round the City and just a short walk away from the Danube. The staff and service is excellent and the decor and cleanliness is also excellent. The bedrooms and bathroom are very spacious. The breakfast is very good with a lot of choice of either hot or cold food. The Restaurant attached to the hotel is very good with excellent food and service. We could not fault this hotel at all and whilst we were there the hotel celebrated its 100th birthday. Everyone spoke English so there were no problems with the language. The staff on reception were very efficient and could not do enough to make our stay very pleasurable. I would highly recommend this hotel when staying in Pest.

Room Tip: The Hotel is on the corner of two major roads in the City so you will get traffic noise if you have...

Well situated hotel for major sights and transport. Elegant and classy public areas. Bedrooms were spacious and en suites a good size, some with bidets. Beds were very comfortable, no sore backs in the morning. Staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast was a buffet with an excellent and varied choice and you could order your eggs cooked any way you chose.
Looked at the dinner menu on the first night and didn't fancy the choice but wanted to eat there as the restaurant was lovely with original features. Looked again a few nights later and the menu hadn't changed which was a pity.
Overall I would have no hesitation in booking here again.

Great hotel with good rooms and spacious washrooms. The hotel is known to have a dark history as the headquarters for the gestapo but no trace of it can be found today. Centrally located to almost everywhere and the ruin pubs are just a hop and skip away.

Next door to Astoria metro station the hotel has excellent comms to all parts of the city - free for 65+ EU residents. The hotel has a slightly old fashioned feel with well equipped, comfortable rooms with minibar and safe but no coffee making. The splendidly decorated Mirror restaurant offers good food and value. Budapest is a wonderful city with many interesting sights and lots to do including many excellent restuarants and two brilliant opera houses and one of the best concert halls and orchestra in the world. Including the cost of flights, hotel tickets work out less than in London for excellent perfomaces and better seats..

Dear Mr Ed_Smith2,

Thank you for choosing us to stay in Budapest and thank you for your positive feedback.
Budapest strives to be among the interesting cultural cities in Europe, so it is very important for us that you were satisfied with the opera and concert venues of the hungarian capital. There are the Astoria Bar in our hotel, a lot of pubs and bars with live music around Astoria and at the top we have our Budapest Music Center and Palace of Arts for classical music fans. The Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music has just been renovated and it is as beautiful as it was 139 years ago.
We look forward to welcoming you back to one of the festivals held in the city next year.

Kind regards,
