Great Hotel for the Price

This hotel reminded me of a really clean, nice dorm. Don't expect anything fancy. On the other hand, the staff is super helpful and friendly. The hotel is just across from the Hungarian National Museum and just a few blocks away from 2 different subway lines. There's AC in the room and the staff can make you coffee in the morning, Overall a great value for the price.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Voros Postakocsi is a short walk from the hotel and although it's just as pricey as the other places on Raday utca, the service was good and the food was great. (Try the goose liver, for sure.)

Great staff, great value

We booked this hotel because of the location, value and the reviews it received. We were not disappointed. The price was unbeatable. The service was excellent. The staff was quite helpful and very friendly. The room was quite basic, but we had everything we needed. Bring your own toilettries if you are picky of what you use. The bedsheets were rough, probably needed a little bit of fabric softener. The hotel is 5-10 minutes walk to Grand Market and Astoria hotel. These are stops on hop on, hop off bus routes. From the hotel, you can walk to major attractions within 30-40 minutes, but it all depends on how often you want to stop along the way. There are bakeries, restaurants, a grocery and a pharmacy near by. The Turkish restaurant next door has very good food. We had dinner there a few times. Budapest is not as cheap as we thought, so we also saved money by going there. Ask for an interior room if you like to sleep in late as the street traffic can be noisy.

Get the brochure for a free walking tour at front desk. Do it yourself or meet up with a tourguide. A great way to explore the city. Visit Grand Market for some food Hungarian beer.

Great Location and Price!!

Nothing can beat its location! It is right across the National Museum, and very close to Gellert Bath, Grand Market Hall, the Synagogue, Vaci utca, and other tourist spots are just a few stops away. You have tram and metro stations just outside the door. It is not a fancy hotel, but really good if you are traveling under a budget. Staffs are very nice and helpful, room is clean, and good price!!

Eurotrip with friends

Really enjoyed the hotel and thought it was a great deal for the money. I stayed in the jacuzzi room with 2 friends and had plenty of room for a rollaway third bed. The hotel staff was also very helpful with directions, tips on what to see, and coordinating rides to the airport.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

If going to Parliament, take the train past Parliament like you're going to the Church on the other side of the river. The views are great, and if you weren't planning on taking a tour of the inside of Parliament, you save time by getting a better view than you would have walking around on the Parliament building grounds.

Wonderful stay at Budapest

The hotel is very clean and comfortable, and the staff members are exceptionally helpful. It was a wonderful place to stay at Budapest! The best is its location--if you don't mind walking, it takes 20-30 minutes to the Parliament or Buda Castle, to Fisherman's Bastion, and 5 minutes to the Great Market. If you don't want to walk, you can take Metro--one stop is only 1 minute away and another 3 minutes. Very convenient. The hotel makes my visit to Budapest very enjoyable! My only minor complaint is that the room is a little noisy (traffic) and there was also a short period of time no staff members were at the counter and no hot water available.

There are more money exchange places nearby the hotel than in tourist attraction sites and the rates are better.
