I genuinely could not find fault with this gem of a pension. It really is excellent value for money. We came here for our wedding anniversary but chose a budget option as we had only recently returned from another holiday. I very much doubt that we could have been more comfortable if we had paid double or treble the price.
Our room was a reasonable size and had an immaculately clean bathroom. The shower was a good size with a powerful flow of water. The beds were very comfortable. Although our room did not have air conditioning it was equipped with a large fan. All of the public areas were spotless.
The price we paid would have been good just for the room but breakfast was included as well! There was a good range of cheese, ham, salami, tomatoes, cucumber, several types of bread, croissants etc. As if this wasn't enough you could have eggs and bacon freshly cooked any way you liked.
Sylvie gives everyone a warm welcome and takes the trouble to ensure her guests understand transport links etc. She said she only took over the Villa Korall six months ago. To her credit she seems to have maintained the high standards set by the previous owner (judging from previous reviews). It is a sign of a well managed hotel that standards were maintained when Sylvie took a couple of days off. The two young men that took over from her simply carried on providing the same exemplary service.
Although Villa Korall is not in the centre of Budapest the 139 bus runs frequently from nearby and only takes about 15 minutes to reach a transport hub in the city which was an easy stroll from the old town. Alternatively buses, metro or trams ran from there to the Pest side of the city. We thought that the quiet location of the hotel was a real bonus.
