Dominik Panzio
Ranked #129 of 190 Budapest B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 14, 2010

During 2010 I stayed 3 times at Dominik Panzio, it always was short stays for 1 or 2 days. I found this hostel pretty good. The price is low, the room (though with shower and toilet outside) are good enough. They serve a breakfast for additional money, it is not big, but quite enough to start a day.
The hostel is situated a little bit far from the city center and walking from metro station to the hostel is not a pleasant trip. A number of beggars, criminals (I even witnessed a robbery of a shop!), many buildings are neglected – this all is rather depressing.

Apart from the location (about 5 minute walk form city park and about 10 minutes from heroes square) and the one nice member of staff (others were pretty grumpy/rude) the hotel was rubbish. If they had called it a hostel i may have been a bit nicer as it has much more in common with a hostel than any hotel i've ever stayed in. The worst bit about the hotel was definitely the room.. no frills - literally only had beds in, and they were like rocks with the thinnest duvets covering them, but because the room was so boiling most of the time this didn't matter. The sheets on the beds had rips and holes in and didn't even cover the whole bed, i could see the old foam mattress underneath. The window also had a crack in it and didn't close properly and the walls were dirty. We were there for 4 nights and they attempted to clean the room once, giving up half way through. The shared bathroom was also poor, it didn't have toilet paper for at least 2 days and the smell wasn't that great either, in fact the whole hotel smelled of smoke/damp. The price of the hotel was very cheap but for pretty much the same amount we'd been staying in the hotel chesscom the previous few days and they were a world apart (if chesscom hadn't been full at the weekend we would've stayed there). At chesscom the rooms were really nice, real beds, tv, en suite and a lift, despite being quite far out it's definitely the better hotel, if you're on a budget go chesscom not here! The best thing about dominik panzio was the coffee machine and when we left.

The hotel is like a hostel. The room was small, the beds are hard as rocks and my boyfriend's sheet had a rip in it. The pillow was so uncomfortable I woke up with a stiff neck and had to use my own pillow (as we'd also been camping on the same trip so had it with me). The hotel smells, it's quite smoky. The staff - one lady who greeted us at the beginning was nice but others were quite rude - when we left my boyfriend said thanks to the guy at reception and he didn't even look up from his desk. The hotel is very noisy and the walls are paper thin. The cleaning staff had obviously entered our room to change the bin and had moved stuff around a bit but sheets were not changed. In future I would pay a little extra for something nicer as despite the free parking and ok location, this 'hotel' is not great at all.

During night, it gets incredibly hot in the rooms, and its difficult to sleep. Shared bathroom is a nightmare of its own. Animals are allowed in rooms ?!??!

We chose Dominik Panzio because of it's location and price, expecting a lower class hotel. The prices are indeed low, considering that it's only a 10 minute walk to the eastern railway station. Nonetheless it has the characteristics of a hostel rather than a hotel, and if you want any kind of peace and privacy, this is not the place for you. The rooms are very basic, with showers and toilets shared on the floor. Isolation is not adequate, neither towards the street nor to the hallway where loud guests tend to pass by at night. Downtown is a good 40 minute walk (or 5-6 stops with bus number 7) from the hotel. I would only recommend this hotel for people who rather spend money on drinks and party than on accomodation.

Bad points: The room was dusty and the beds were very tiny and hard as rock. We think our beds had flees, as we woke up with some marks. The room will make you stay out as much as possible.
Bathrooms are at the end of the hallway and even thou we see the cleaner everyday, they are quite dirty, so we couldn’t shower for the 2 nights stay. They are used by anyone so their cleanliness will vary by the degree of civilization I guess.
There is free wireless access to internet but only near the reception.

Good points: The members of stuff from reception were very friendly and helpful. We really liked them. The bus stop is very close to the hostel (this is not a hotel), a 2 minute walk. The hostel is close to the city centre. You only have to take bus 7 or 173 and it takes about 10 mins to the city centre.

We do not recommend this hotel.

The room will make you stay out as much as possible. Small, ancient windows, smelling of cleaning agents but clean enough. The beds are hard as rock, but I've slept incredibly well on them.

Bathrooms are at the end of the hallway. They are used by anyone so their cleanliness will vary by the degree of civilization of the other guests.

There is free wireless access to internet but only near the reception (there is also a computer for those without a laptop). There is no wireless signal in rooms or restaurant.

The breakfast is basic and it's the same every day...but it does it's job.

The stuff from reception was really friendly and helpfull. A great kudos from me.
