Bad breakfast, dirty rooms (including food on the floor), smelled bad, rude receptionists, area seemed unsafe, bathroom dirty etc. Can't really say anything good about it.. Cheap, but isn't even worth it.. Hotel didn't have it's own bath, gym, restaurant or pub, atm etc, which were mentioned as services... Asked to use air condition of the room because it was off, answer was that you don't need to use it yet... DON'T BOOK IT!!!

Stayed for a seven night sightseeing break. If your travelling light it takes about 45mins to an hour on public transport from the airport. Bus 200E to Kobanya Kispest then the metro to Ferenc Korut, a five minute walk from there and only 320HUF!

Although the surrounding sex shops and bars make the area feel a little seedy i did'nt encounter any trouble or feel threatened in anyway.

Room 51 was large with high ceilings and windows opening into a court yard balcony. The basic room was cleaned daily and fresh towels were a plenty.

Fresh continental breakfast consisted of local breads, meats and cheeses. Fresh coffee and toasters plus juices, cerials, jams and yoghurt. Breakfast staff and cleaners always had a smile.

Daytime reception staff extremely helpful. Catch a tram directly outside the hotel, or within easy walking distance central market hall or "Raday Utka" foodie streets. Bakeries and supermarkets are also not far away.

Great value for money (don't forget 100HUF per night government tax) Would recommend.

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
