“Avoid it”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This hotel is a total disaster. Located on a main square of Debrecen, looking stunning from the outside and the original parts of the building still hold up nicely. We were told that the hotel is on a market for sale. The main building has outdated rooms you can see on the website. The "new" building, the additional wing to the original built in the 1970s, is where our room was located. That wing and the rooms should not be rented out to visitors. Dark hallways, tiny rooms, no decor, less then hostel accomodation. The breakfast was sufficient. The staff do a minimum that they're expected to do. The hotel offers a parking for a very high price behind the building. Don't use it!!! Park at the city parking lot for half a price. If you stay over the weekend, the parking is free from 8 PM on Saturday and all day on Sunday.
We used the spa facility once during our stay. Enjoyed the pool and the sauna. The steam room and the hot tub didn't work properly.
Insist and book a room in the original building, facing the square.

It was very disappointing to find out there was no wifi in the room. The outside building and the surroundings looked nice, but the inside was so outdated. They can use a renovation inside; need upgrading ASAP. The room and bathroom were clean and okay size. For me not having WIFI in the rooms was deal breaker.

i choose ex communist hotels for their location only!having read the reviews and from previous eastern european experince,i got exactly what i expected for the price.my room,in which i only sleep and wash was quite good and spacious.everything worked.breakfast seemed to be appreciated by some,hungarians i imagine.i neede the hot water and milk for the tea which i carry with me around europe.the rest i can get elsewhere.the restaurant was adequate.100yards from everywhere,was the main selling point from which i could leisurely stroll around town foer the few days i was there.

From the outside the hotel still has a look of grandeur from the old days, but inside it is simply old! This faded glory effect can sometimes be charming, here it is faded. Rooms are old, furniture is old, parking is chaotic and the food unmemorable.
A shame really, breakfast is to be found in a stunning ballroom setting. The hotel is on the central square. With a little work this would be a really nice place, but until then it should be missed. It is not worth the money.

The hotel looks nice from the outside, but inside… it’s another story. It needs renovation; old and outdated. The rooms had not wifi in them that was super disappointing. I would not recommend this hotel to travelers.

No problem with Aranybika, average hotel, clean room & bathroom, helpful staff, no wifi at the room, but not disappointed if you choose this hotel.

You have to looking forward another hotel :-) It was terrible! Very old furnitures in rooms, and my main problem was the missing air conditioning, it is unbearable on hot summer days. The foods are poor, not operating coffee machine, late or missing food resupply, chaotic parking system, complicated accessibility of the hotel, often noisy rooms, and the family apartments views are intolerable. I do not recommend to anyone...
