“Extremely Cold...”
Reviewed January 26, 2008

This hotel was awful and cheap. Apart from being located in a very weird-looking area of Budapest, it was cold... I practically froze under my blanket (it was the end of December and there were approx. 10 degrees Celsius in the room). The only good thing about this hotel: the food was great.

Hotel was OK, rooms were quite tidy but no A/C was a big problem when you have +36 degrees outside. Breakfast wasnt, at least to my scandinavian taste, so good but at least there was one. Hotel staff was VERY polite and helpfull! The neighbourhood wasnt too bad to my opinion. I was there 5 days with my girlfriend and at least we didnt have any problems. I didnt see that anyone else had them either. Of course the location isnt the best one ( takes approx 15 minutes to city centre with bus etc) but at least this hotel is cheaper than those in the city centre.

Rooms were OK, but no A/C so very difficult to sleep at night in 35degree summer heat.
Very bad room service....bed never made...duvet thrown in the corner by the television.After the first morning breakfast I brought a cup of coffee to my room....that cup remained there for my 4 day stay...starting to grow mould and no one removed it.
Lifts were constantly out of order as was the gym/suana/pool....not sure if they even have this facility...maybe false advertising.
Very dodgy area....feeling of a nasty neighbourhood....did not feel safe during th day not to mind the night.
Dodgy electrics...lights constantly going on and off.Got the feeling that the electricity was turned off at night to save on running costs.
Would not recommed this hotel but I suppose for the price....you get what you pay for. Would not stay here again...prefer to pay a bit more for a better safer environment.
Staff friendly enough.

  • Liked — good powerful shower
  • Disliked — neighbourhood
  • Tips/Secrets — pay a bit more for a better place

Room ok. Food, Fair. Neighborhood, scary. Hotel is fenced like a prison, to keep the bad guys out. Staff warned us to "watch your belongings in the neighborhood" It is also too far from downtown. We were afraid to return after dark.
