Hotel Lucky
Ranked #255 of 332 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Its a OK hotel, stayed for 3 nights, breakfast served between 7am to 10am which is a selection of European meats and cheese's.

The bedroom was ok, only allowed to turn the air conditioning during the Summer months despite having warm nights so kept my window (that lead on to a small terrace) open, but it is a quite area.

Good access to the centre of Budapest via the 82 and 77 bus link to the M2 metro line.

Was allowed to use their PC to check my mail and Facebook!

Room Tip: If you are coming to and from the centre via the Metro, the last metro back to the hotel is at 11.33...

At best this hotell is 2 star, everything was quite clean but it needed a major overhaul, TV was about 20 years old and no english chanels. As everyone says that the clerk is very helpfull and speaks good english.The breakfast i can only describe as being typical Hungarian.
The bus is right outside and takes about 25 mins to get to downtown .
On arrival i was told that a goverment tax of 400 huf per day had to be paid. If your on a tight budget then this is the place to stay. but for a few pounds more you can stay in the Hotel Eben which is near the tube and Arken shopping centre

We paid for hotel through the internet, but had to pay extra, 1.30 EUR per person , per day x 6 people x 3 days. I was seriously surprised when i was charged extra for the parking, even no body told to us that parking is paid when we asked. So in total, the bill was 50 EUR higher for 3 nights then at the start
There is internet in the rooms but you have to pay for it... system for paying the internet is , as much as they can take, they do. Originally price is 300 forintas per day (not a lot ) , but password is the same for everybody. They try to charge you for all days you are in hotel, multiply by person, what is non sense.
Breakfast very poor and not good quality. Location is more less ok for the price...
In total , if charging was fair, would give better marks, like this that's all.

It is far from center. It is not far from Polus shopping mall.
But we chose here because it is close to our friends apartment. Transportation is easy, bus to almost frontdoor, then bus connected with subway to town center.
Winter is not the best season, so we didn't see other guests, and don't expect variety for breakfast for this reason.
Kind staffs.
Air condition kind of too warm.
Recommended if you chose this area for some reason like visiting friends nearby.

Although a litlle out of the centre this is alleviated by the the superb tram services that go to the Metro.
English speaking hotel clerk, Laszlo speaks very good English and is very helpful

I gave the review this title to be kind and because I don't know general standards in Hungary, never having stayed anywhere else there before.

We stayed for just three days as our daughter was taking part in the Triathlon World Championships and we were supporting the team.

The hotel does look charmng, in an old worldly Germanic way, but to be honest 3 stars is over generous in my opinion.

Our room was very basic. The old heavy TV had no English channels and the remote control didn't work. The bottom sheet was too small for the bed and by the time we woke up in the mornings it was completely rucked up and uncomfortable. In the bathroom the shower head was broken and the only way to have a shower was to hold it in your hand and spray yourself; the towel rail was also hanging off the wall. There were no toiletries provided - only a soap container fixed to the wall. The safe locked OK but was not attached to anything so a thief could just have lifted the whole thing and made off with it! This would not have been too difficult either as our room door didn't lock properly!

To be fair we didn't ask anyone to sort these problems out as we were in and out all the time and only used the room as a place to sleep, but the mere fact that so many things were wrong suggests that insufficient care is taken of customers' comfort. Perhaps this is commonplace in Hungary, I don't know.

On the other hand the staff seemed very friendly, everything was kept clean and the buffet breakfast was better than we expected as there were scrambled eggs as well as cold meats and the usual continental fare.

Would I recommend it? Probably not; it's quite a distance outside the city, which is inconvenient and you have to catch a bus to the nearest metro station (although they are frequent). All things considered if I went to Budapest again I would pay a bit more and find somewhere in the city itself - probably 4 star.

Old building, not clean. We foound lots of ants on the floor, water was half-heated, power point was loose, night light did not work, there was no elevator, breakfest not so good for this money, room price is high. For this money you can get much better hotelrooms at better places in Budapest. Air condition was good working, staff were nice. In restaurant we found bad odour.
