Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Once I get there the receptionist lost my reservation, then me and my friends were put in a very dirty room under restructuraction. The day after they gave us another room, nice and clean. Last day they said that I didn't pay when I paid before, so for proving it I had to waste a lot of time and I lost my train.

This hotel is situated in Buda and is well served by buses (also by night buses). If you take the bus 8 or 112 at Avar Utca stop, just a few meters from the hotel, you can easily get to the Ferenciek Tere metro station.
My double room was quite large with poor and old furnishings. Very small bathroom with a shower tray. The sheets and towels are changed every three days and for additional changes you need to pay a fee. A bit 'lacking in terms of cleaning.
Furthermore, breakfast buffet (from 7 to 10 a.m.) is plentiful but the quality is not great (they don't serve normal coffee but barley coffee). Rooms are very far from the reception, in fact, you have to go upstairs and pass through a long corridor, then climb many stairs and finally take the lift. There's no air conditioning and not free Wi-Fi (you have to pay it separately). The hotel staff is kind and helpful.
Remember then that Bara Hotel and Bara Junior are exactly the same hotel.
Overall, satisfactory experience. My opinion is positive!

Very nice journey and beautiful city!
I recommend this hotel if you do not have too many claims.

For our citytrip for 5 days to Budapest we stayed at the Bara Junior Hotel. It's located about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Pest ( although there is a bustop in front of the hotel ) Rooms and furniture are a little bit outdated but clean. We travelled from the airport to the hotel with the airport shuttle service for € 5,- per person ( recommended )
We stayed in the Junior part of Bara, which is quit a distance from the lobby of the Hotel, about a 100 meters walk through a corridor with a few stairs.
The breakfast is simple, but sufficiant. The coffee was not very good/ strong. Beside the hotel is a small cafee, where we chilled after visiting the citycentre opf Pest. The prices of the drinks there were a laugh.
Overall a very nice hotel for a very reasonable ( cheap ) price

Stayed there on sep17th one night only. The room is small but clean, i was alone and i found it okay to me, and its quite far from the reception.In my room Tv didnt work. Breakfast is ok, acceptable. Staff friendly. Hotel is good for short stay, but next time i think i should go to other one because here i didnt feel welcomed.

we spent only one night in hotel bc we had plain to catch in the morning so for this purpose hotel is ok. room is so far from the reception with long corridors and spiral stairs so you got feeling that you must throw pieces of bread so you can find your way out:)
room is basic and clean, breakfast was good
