“Nothing special”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The only really good thing about this hotel is its location.Had a room with two twin beds but it turned out to be a smoking room ? At least it had a strong Smell of cigarettes. It was very noticable every time I entered the room. The hotel itself was clean but the lobby was very spartan and not much comfort. It must be said I did not book the room and as such I do not know how much it cost. I will be going back to Budapest in 2013 but will be unlikely to stany here again.

Dear Pat1187,

Thank you for sharing your review about our hotel as every feedback is very important for us. We are really sorry for the smell in the room. If you would told this issue for my colleagues at the reception desk they could provide you another room which does not have any cigarette smell. We hope that you could take advantage of the location and you had enough time to explore the city.

Best Regards,

I was at a conference and didn't pay for the hotel, but I would stay there again at the going price. The room was comfortable (on the 6th floor), the bathroom was fine with a good shower. The location was great. I enjoyed walking around the quarter when I had some free time.

Room Tip: My room was overlooking the street, but I didn't notice any noise. There isn't much traffic.

We arrived pretty early from Krakow and the staff was no very friendly/helpful. The room even when it was on the second floor and looking to the street was quiet so we could sleep prety well, the downside was that the shower was not working well. Room was clean and pretty decent for the price, you are just 5 minutes walk from a subway station and walking distance from many city attactions. the wifi only works in the common areas but if you are in the second floor there is a chance your computer can pick the signal. thre is several bars and restaurants in the vicinity so you can pick wer you want to eat or if you don´t want to pay the buffet breakfast at the hotel it will be easy to find another place just walking around the corner.

Budapest is a very large, moving city. Spent 3 nights in this hotel. Very small room. Very small bath. In the heart of everything so good location. No wifi in room. Had to go to the lobby. No amenities in the bath. Mattress on bed is shot. Needs to be replaced. Marketplace is two blocks away. Breakfast - average.

Dear Seetheworld010,

Thank you for sharing the review about your stay. We are sorry that you were not satisfied with the size of the room, the bath and the mattress. Our rooms have standard size which is approximately 20square meters. We have Wireless Internet connection in all rooms not only in the lobby. However in the rooms if you want to use it you have to buy a card for it which is available at the reception desk. We hope that apart from the unpleasant facts you could enjoy your stay in Budapest.

The hotel was clean, and the service nice. Free Internet in the lobby. Be mindful of the windows if you are on a lower level as the street noise from local pubs and cages can be noisy.

Be careful of paying for parking at the front desk- they say they have a deal with Franklin parking(.25 blocks away) however Franklin demanded additional money. I am sure this was just a misunderstanding, however I recommend know in advance to the cost of parking. It was an additional 15eu for our car to be released.

Overall the stay was satisfactory. We do plan on going back to Budapest, however we were not impressed enough with the hotel to stay there again.

This is a no frills hotel, so it is a decent value for one night. The only above average score that we would give is the location is choice.

Enjoy your stay in Budapest. It is an amazing city and you should give yourself at least 2-3 full days.

Dear Sir / Madame,

Thank you for choosing our Hotel Erzsébet City Center and for sharing your
opinion about your stay. We are sorry for the issue with the Franklin parking house. It must be a misunderstanding as we have the deal with them and it could not be happen to pay extra for parking if you are our guest. We are happy that you liked the city and we hope you could visit many sights. We are sorry that you will not visit our hotel again but we hope that you will enjoy your next stay in Budapest.

Centrally located with walking distance to main Budapest attractions. Metro station nearby with Direct connection to airport. Rooms are average but price adequate. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast could be more tasteful. Alternatively there are many restaurants nearby.
I will definately stay there again when back in Budapest.
