Carlton Hotel Budapest

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel has a brilliant location, close to the chain bridge it is near to lots of the city attractions. It is also tucked away up a small road so is quiet at night when you need to sleep. The staff were very friendly and helpful and provided great information about transport and restaurants. Our room was large and comfortable and the bathroom was modern and well-equipped. We found the breakfast buffet catered for every taste and the food was good quality. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone like us who want to enjoy the sights and attractions of the city.

So we didn't actively choose this hotel as it came in a package deal. Finding the hotel was pretty easy over the chain bridge to the right of the funnicular with a nifty little corner shop right next to the tunnel. On arrival we were unfortunately given a basement room as we were informed it was fully booked. Was Easter after all.Room was clean and so was the bathroom. Nice touch was the hot drinks and biscuits on cold and wet days during the day. Location is perfect for local transport and the big bus which is walking distance (3-5min across the roundabout). Pub across the hotel too if you are desperate and don't feel like venturing too far. Basement access is available through the garage but with your key card if you can't use the stairs (quite accessible). Breakfast good with this one lovely sweet and soft cheese that I forgot to get the name of (delicious). Luggage can be left in their luggage room if you have checked out and still have time in Budapest. Overall lovely no fuss stay but certainly 3 star.

Stayed here for 2 nights after staying in luxury of Hilton Vienna... This is a really cramped up hotel with really small room size. The top floor look and feel is small due to the slanting roof at the top. Plz book some other hotel instead

This hotel is near the old Buda castle and Clarkes Square for easy access to hop on hop off bus.Great restarants near by Loved Budapest my wife and I had a great time.If you are a smoker get a balcony room so you can sit outside and have a smoke

Location of the hotel is really good! Rooms are a bit old fashioned, but they are clean. Breakfast is good enough. Staff is friendly. For this price range you can not find any better options. I reccomend this hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed here three nights for my birthday. On arrival the receptionists were super friendly, helpful and welcoming. They also let us check in early as we were sat in the lobby half asleep because of an early arrival. The room was alright, nothing amazing and more on the three star side in my opinion and the 'double bed' was two a two singles hybrid with single blankets which was super disappointing and weird. Very clean though and it had a safe which was handy. I found the minibar to be pointless as there was one bottle of water in it when we arrived...not much of a minibar! Breakfast was an excellent spread with hot and cold options. Location wise the hotel was a short walk across the bridge to the main shopping area, the ruin bars were walkable, and it was super close to the castle. Price wise this hotel was decent and close to everything we wanted to see.

Stayed here from Thursday to Sunday in March and found it to be comfortable and clean . Near to the chain bridge and not to far from the pest side. Good breakfast and helpful staff. Airport pick up was handy as well.

What a great hotel in a great location and so close to all the things to see whilst in Budapest. First time we have travelled to this great city in Hungary and the hotel just made the holiday even better. The rooms were very clean and looked after and the staff could not be more helpful in all ways and guided us to tourist locations and places to eat. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the chain bridge which takes you over to the Pest side of the Danube which is well worth a visit and some historic landmarks to see. Breakfast although continental offered so many choices and even though busy at times, the staff did everything they could to make sure you were seated very quickly. The hotel even organised our transport back to the airport when we departed which was very kind of them and nothing was a bother, pity some British hotels do not offer this exceptional service. My only complaint was that there was some noise during the night which we phoned reception about but did not do anything about it, but apart from that we would definitely return to this hotel. Good for couples, families and a lads night out location. Well done Carlton Hotel staff and looking foward to seeing you all again.

What's not to like, great location, rooms decent, plenty of choice for breakfast & helpful staff. 5 mins easy walk to Chain Bridge to get to all parts of Buda & Pest. Lovely local bar immediately opposite hotel & great restaurant within 100 metres. Perfect for city break would stay again.

We stayed here for 4 nights as part of a groupon offer. The hotel is in a fantastic location only a few minutes walk from the Szechenyi Bridge. The main attractions such as Fishermans Basin and Buda Castle are only a short walk up the hill and the city centre all within 15 minutes walk. The Hotel reception area includes free use of the computers and printers and they now offer self service coffee and biscuits between 1pm and 5pm which was really appreciated after coming in from the cold. Staff were very friendly and there is also free wifi throughout the hotel. Our room was on the 6th floor and was very clean on arrival, rooms are basic and include tea/coffee making facilities however I wasn't a fan of the cardboard cups. The beds were very comfortable. We were located next to the lift but didn't really bother us as only really heard noise in the morning when we were already up. I am a massive fan of food and we really enjoyed the breakfast and there was always plenty of choice. There is no restaurant but there is one next door and loads of restaurants to choose from all within walking distance. Overall this is a quiet hotel in a fantastic location and we enjoyed our stay.
