OK

Location was good but overpriced for the size of the room and lack of hotel amenities. Ok if you only need a bed for a night. Staff were pleasant enough but weren't willing to go the extra mile. I asked for directions or suggestions on places to see or eat at a few times and always got very short, flat answers.

A Sicilian restaurant around the corner, I forget the name, was very nice and had good prices. (Under €15 for dinner and a drink)

Friends traveling abroad

This hotel is conveniently located near a bunch of good restaurants and going out places. It's also relatively close to the famous Great Market Hall. A couple of the staff members were at best lacking personality and at worst pretty rude, but it was only a couple and the rest of the staff was more helpful and accomodating. Overall, it was a good value and good location.

Awesome!

The hotel is centrally located, close to a subway stop and is within walking distance from many places of interest. The staff is very nice and efficient, they were very helpful when I had some problems with my computer and they did everything to help (and it did help!) The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. I keep their address to recommend them to everyone I know who wants to visit Budapest and since I intend to go back in the Spring season I'll definitely book again with them!

Great Trip, Great Value

We stayed a week, sightseeing and enjoying Budapest. The hotel is in a great location and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. This hotel would be our first choice on a return visit and we are so satisfied that we would use one of their other hotels when traveling in other countries.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Try a "hop on hop off" bus tour when you first get to the city. You can get a ticket from the front desk. With the tour you get 2 boat ride tickets on the Danube. It's wonderful at night.

Nickle and Dime Central

I stayed at the Erzsebet Hotel Budapest in 2006 and it was the best experience. Free Breakfast, Free internet in the lobby. Friendly staff and I couldn't wait to stay there again. In 2010 it was different. Even though my orbits res said free breakfast when I booked it they refused to give it to us and said it would be 8 Euro or 6 Euro if I paid in advance for everyday we were there. While in 2006 the breakfast was good it was not 6 Euro good there is a Match (Supermarket) one block away and with our 12 Euro (2 people) breakfast budget we were able to purchase Caviar, Goose Liver, Several Cheeses, Fresh Breads, Salami, Butter and Jelly, danish Juice, Coffee, Diet Coke and Red bull for about 8 Euro. The once free internet was $5 for 30 minutes. Most hotels in Budapest offer it for free and there is a REALLY NICE bookstore Barns and Noble type but Much nicer on Andrasy ut and they charge .50 cents for an hour. Dont touch the phone either we made 5 calls totaling 7 minutes all LOCAL!!!! and the bill was $20 ALSO the electricity in our room was busted and they said it had to be us because it worked fine. After having an electrician look at it they decided the could set up another outlet for our converter. 24 hours later the whole hotels electricity went down and we had to walk down from the 8th floor. Also do do not exchange your money there. they were offering 209 forents for every USD and Citibank by Vorosmarty Ter was offering 250 for Every USD I think 20% Exchange rate is a bit Much. Lastly and just an annoyance in the 2.5 weeks we were there our room key broke 4 times for "No reason"

The main market has places to eat lunch upstairs very inexpensive. Papa Fritzi is a great cheep traditional resturaunt located by the Opera house on Kiraly Ut and Pesti Lampus across the street offers EXTREAMLY AFFORDABLE fine dinning. Lastly get breakfast from the Match and eat in your room.
