“Good Price, Good Location”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

The hotel is located next to the main square. The multilingual staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast wasn't amazing but more than adequate. The room was decent: good mattress, nice blankets, and hot water. But note that I had heeded other reviewers' warnings/suggestions to spring for the superior room if I could afford it.

The hotel is a relic from the past when it was an elegant, downtown hotel and also from the Socialist era. But it is in a super location, it's perfectly clean and the service is great. Everything worked, which can't be said about many hotels with more stars. A very good value for your money.

Looks good on the outside but our basic room was very dated, with a shower room squeezed in containing one of those macerating loos and a shower which was in a poor condition. The quilt covers did not fully cover the quilts; there was a hole in the centre of the upper side which showed the quilt through it; I've never seen that before! The breakfast room was amazing and very opulent, and the breakfast was OK, especially when we asked for fried eggs and they were cooked specially for us.

Like going back in time, I think the hotel has had better days. Probaby staely in it's day but merely funtional now.
That said, it would be unfair not to say the rooms were clean (though small) and the staff were friendly and helpful.
I didn't like the shower too much because it was hand held, no hook up on the wall. And the water pump was noisy. Though again the shower was clean.
Nice city with plenty of places to eat and drink, and we were lucky enough to stumble on the Alarbardos restaurant about half hour walk from the hotel, in which we had the most fantastic meal.

The hotel is very centrally located and virtually on the banks of the river Tisza.
All the shopping areas, cafeterias, restaruants are walking distance.
The rooms are very dark or at least the one we stayed in was.
Strange place really, seems to have more of a dormitory or hospital type feel than hotel atmosphere.
The furniture seemed quite worn out and the whole place needs an upgrade.
The beds were comfy enough though and the staff were friendly enough.

It was last year. We came to Szeged late, it was raining and Novotel (hotel where we slept three weeks earlier) was full, so we didn't have too many possibilities to looking for accomodation. In fact, we were happy that we have found any place to sleep. Tisza is in the center of town, in stylish, elegant building, could we expect more? Our room wasn't impressive- small, old-furnitured, with tiny bathroom, in the corner was sitting very big and very fat spider. We could put up with it. But we were shocked when we saw COCKROACHES. Yes, in this hideous, horrible, awful "hotel" are cockroaches. The staff weren't suprised, gave us our money back, so we asked first taxi driver about the best hotel in Szeged and went to Forras - now I can say the best hotel in this town really. Of course it's more expensive that other one (costs about 140 euro, Tisza 80 euro, Novotel about 70) but cockroaches are not included.
