“The owner over charges”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We booked this hotel over the phone the owner quoted us 75 euros per night, when we went to pay he said the price was cash only, no credit cards. We only access to Hungarian Forint.
When we went to pay for the accommodation the owner used his personal conversion rate which would have made "Shylock" blush. When this was pointed out to him, he had the contempt to say the rates supplied on the internet were "Black market" rates. This made the accommodation more expenses than it was worth.
The hotel is located a long distance from the railway station and the centre of town, the owner offered to collect us from the railway station as a free service, when we were paying our bill he added 10 Euro onto the bill for this free service.
The bed sheets were made from a course netting.
The apartments do not have any cooking utensils, when we asked the owner for a kettle or a pot to boil water in, he declined and said he would supply us with a jug of hot water.
Breakfast was poor quality, it was bread, with cheese ham and tomatoes, no cereal, no hot food.

This lovely B&B is situated in a fairly quiet location on the edge of this little town,but close to the famous basilica, and about ten minutes walk from the centre of this little town. I was given a choice of two very nice rooms,both actually more large studio or apartment than just a room. I chose the room on the top floor which affords good views of the basilica.The accommodation is very spacious,with two sofas,a very comfortable bed in a separate area, sufficient hanging and storage space,a minibar/fridge and microwave,and TV (albeit without international channels). The bathroom is large and modern,and there is a separate toilet.
Breakfast is served in the breakfast room,and consists of a generous Continental breakfast with juice,great bread and bread rolls,an excellent selection of cold cuts and cheeses,jam and yoghurt.You will definitely not starve!
The real treasure is the owner,Zsolt,who is the perfect host. He speaks perfect English, and good German.He is extremely warm and helpful, ready to give you excellent advice on how to make the most of your stay in Esztergom. Advice on restaurants,walks,sightseeing in the area, buses etc. I was leaving on a Sunday,taking a train from Sturovo across the river in Slovakia. I asked him to book a taxi for me,but he actually drove me to Sturovo station himself, charging a very modest fee for this service.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Esztergom, a super place, and very good value for money

We found the hotel on our way to Budapest. The place is not far from the main Church and you can easily walk to the centre. We found the owner extremely kind and helpful (we have parked all our bikes in his garage), large and conforteable rooms and a great breakfast. Prices are more than interesting also compared to similar accomodation around. So a great place to stay...

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
1100 years ago Esztergom was „the first capital” of Hungary. Nowadays it is more appropriate to call Esztergom “the starting point for tourism in the Danube bend”. It is a starting point for people who long for Some cultural programmes Relaxation in calm Wellness treat Children attractions Evenings in high spirits Walking and water tours Familiarity with the Danube bend and the region Trips to the former Hungarian places in Slovakia Sightseeing in Budapest which is also in easy reach from here Taking wonderful air photos Or perhaps business or any other connectionsIt is really worth spending some days or weeks here in this town. It is advisable to organise the programmes from here. When “checking out” you will see and say: Not even a stay of two weeks would have been enough, there is still a lot we have not seen or done… But never mind, at least we have not hurried.” However, if you want to spend just one day here, Esztergom is a fine starting point also in that case, everything is nearby in this town, Basilica, castle, wellness-centre, you can forget about your car. Hotel St. Kristóf is also nearby in Esztergom.(So much about the marketing blab, and now let us share something “straightforwardly “with you.)Hotel St. Kristóf has been for about 20 years a reliable, always tidy and peaceful place of accommodation in Esztergom and the region.It may be too calm. – Never mind, our guest do not like the neighbour shouting It may not be trendy enough –Never mind, the guests returning will have the feeling of familiarity You may not have any swimming pool or seaside in your room.- Never mind, people usually prefer the really professional wellness centre which is five-minute walk from us It may not be the cheapest accommodation. – Never mind, you may know that sometimes the cheapest is the dearest We may gloss ourselves in the webpage? – That is the thing we are really bad at Maybe you could also feel well here? Just have a look at the normal and panorama photos, and if you like the atmosphere of them, your stay will be certainly enjoyable in Hotel St. KristófAs you can see Hotel St. Kristóf was designed mainly by Natural Life. By the way, Natural Life…The guests who do not let themselves cheated by trendy hocus-pocus tricks are returning. The number of such regular guests tends to decrease, or still does not? We will see…In case your interest has been awakened just look round in our rooms and apartments with the help of the 360° panorama photos. ... more   less
