Reviewed November 5, 2009

This hotel is located ten minutes walk from a busy Metro station and tram terminal, and about 5 mins. away from the Keleti train station. From there it is one metro stop to the Great synagogue and two to the Parliament. So it is not centrally located, on the other hand the neighborhood is generally quiet, although the tram on the street does start running at 6 AM.
We had a large room which was a converted apartment, since we were traveling with our 11 year old. The breakfast was decent, but not outstanding. The reception staff was very helpful.
There was nothing special about this hotel, but we had good value for the price we paid.

The Atlas is reasonable value in a city which is becoming more expensive very quickly. Our double room was large and reasonably furnished except for lack of shelves or counters, particularly in the bathroom and no hairdryer. The back rooms are quiet and there is a spacious bar/lounge area downstairs. Although trams run outside the hotel, it's a 10 minute walk to transport to take you to the city centre.

Location rather out of the way- it is a 25 minute walk to the 'town centre' the rooms were fine for the low price. Watch out for the rather dismal 'cooked breakfast' and steer clear of the sausages, a good vet would have them barking/moo-ing. Dont let the receptionist order you a taxi, the taxi will arrive, the driver will go into reception and they will discuss how much they think they can get away with charging you! Make them put the meter on! However...............as a value hotel, go for it if budget is your priority.

Noise from the street is a little bit disturbing (especially when you're trying to sleep). Can't spend time in the hotel, because there is nothing to do... but a bar at downstairs.

we came to this hotel with an open mind as we did get a good deal when booking. when we arrived we were a bit disappointed though as we had been told it was in the city centre however it was about 20 to 30 mins walk to the actual centre. it is worth going into the main area at night as there are not many good places to eat near the hotel, its about 5mins to the metro station though. the area around the hotel is very shabby and i was glad i was with a group as i dont think i would have felt very safe alone here. there were also a lot of vagrants in this area and the hotel told us to be careful with handbags etc. we stayed for 3 nights and only ate breakfast at the hotel one morning as it wasnt that great. the bar however was very cheap and stayed open til late. our room was quite clean but a little noisy because it was at the front of the hotel and there is a tram line directly outside in the street.

budapest itself though is a lovely city and we would return, however not to this hotel.

+ Really, really friendly stuff! :o)
+ Air-contioned rooms
- rooms were sooo dusty and dirty! We stayed there with 10 months old baby and we couldn't let her on the floor at all. And also if you self are allergic, don't book a room from here! *Jaiks!*
- Surrounding of the hotel was also really untidy. Only the centrums of Buda and Best were beautiful and well-cared so maybe this hotel is just located too far from the centrum.
- A long way (almost 3 km) to the centrum and also to the metro stop. So we had to walk a lot anyway even we used a lot of metro.
- Don't expect very delicious and diverse breakfast
