“Run from There!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2008

Run from there, I Runed! Why?! I Tell You Why! Doors and windows were unlockable, The bed sheet was a single one on a single bed so I would slept on a dirty mattress. There was no electricity in the bathroom, the toilet box recharged in about 15 minutes, and motor noise as something from hell... towels were actually broken duster cloths and I had to ask for the toilet paper. They never clean up the room.There were uncovered cables, and the furniture as folling in pieces. The breakfast table was dirty and located in a cold corridor, and there were some ancient corn flakes in a ex-transparent box), acid milk and burned coffee. When you arrive they ask you for money... ! If you go there (I advise you against it) PAY IN EURO or they will cheat you! I never been in a place like this, but be aware there are more in Budapest, so In the end I booked a room in a Ibis Hotel. I payed the double, but at least I as in a decent place!

Great little bed and breakfast hotel! Five minutes walk from Deak Ter metro, and on bus and tram routes, getting around Budapest from here could not be easier. Subway and Pizza Hut and local restaurants/bars handy.

Address given as second floor but is really third if you are walking up the stairs! Using the lift it is 2. There are steps up to the lift .

Room was large, with shower room, both spotless. Adequate storage and seating, comfortable beds, (pillows and duvets are feather filled), excellent reading lights.

Location a bit noisy, but double glazing and external shutter reduced traffic noise - I prefer having the window open and the noise was not unbearable, it was traffic not people noise.

Breakfast was good (cereal, rolls, tea or coffee) and available early, though some days someone had to go out first for supplies, do not count on always getting breakfast at 7!

I met several members of staff, most spoke excellent English. All were friendly.

I would recommend this small hotel to anyone who wants clean comfortable budget accommodation.

  • Liked — Location, reading light, breakfast included.
  • Disliked — Quality of towels! Clean but small and coarse.
