“Just what we needed - and that's all”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Me and my partner spent 6 nights there and it was super for our needs : location, a bed, bathroom, somekind of breakfast and 24 h reception. The location and prices are great and their wi-fi is super ! At least in our room and almost worth the price alone. They do not clean the rooms every day, but then again, who changes bedsheets every day at home? Got new towels whenever we wanted and the ppl working there are very nice! And yes, the bed is hard :) NOt too good standard, but it was just what we needed for our time there.

Room Tip: Get near the wi-fi hot spot! And a room away from the street probably :)

dont believe the pictures, hardest bed I have slept in, no remote for the T.V, no lamps, no kettle, random pieces of furniture with little use. broken shower head and faulty sink plug and damp in bathroom and bedroom. also the staff were probably the most unhelpful and unwelcoming people I have ever come across. shouldnt be called a hotel, more like a bad hostel.

Room Tip: choose a different hotel

Rooms were not bad bud there was a bit dust all over the furniture and floor.

Location is excellent, trams are across the street and is a big avenue with everything.

Very well located near the center of Pest, near metro and tram stations.
The rooms were large, clean but very poor.The parking for the car was expensine (12 euros per night) the breakfast very poor too.The main advantage is the price, we paid 49 euros per night, breakfast included, for a triple room in high season

We stayed for two nights on the dates of 24-25 October 2010. We had 3 receptionists but two of them were really rude and didn't even answer your questions. First night we slept well but the second night the heating was not on and when I asked about it, the one with the beard said it was automatic but alas! No heating! The bas was closed was what they said. So we regretted staying in that terrible hotel. I would never recommend that place. Try to find something better. The only advantage was that it is located in the center, that's it. They should change something quickly I guess.

The hotel is very tired and while the bedding & bathroom was clean, the rest of the room would benefit from new carpets and re-decorating. The toilet facilities in reception were extremely poor and dirty.

The pictures on the website are very misleading, the rooms do not bear any resemblance to the pictures. There is no bar, no Hungarian & Chinese restaurant, as advertised, and the fitness centre is not part of the hotel. If you want to use it, you have to pay and enter through a different entrance.

We had several power cuts during our stay and it took the hotel quite some time to sort out the problem.

The staff are not particularly helpful either, with the exception of the receptionist who booked us in on our arrival, he was helpful and the ladies who served breakfast were pleasant. The rest of the staff were quite unhelpful and unfriendly.

I would not recommend this hotel and I would not stay there again.
