Central Basilica Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location is extremely convenient and the people are very friendly. The rooms are basic but very clean and so are the bathrooms. The breakfast buffet was a bit of a disappointment - the breads and the sausages were just ok, all in all an indifferent spread.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of March. We used Tesco reward vouchers which helped cover some of the hotel cost, through We paid for a non-view room as we only intended to sleep there. The hotel has a great location, just a few minutes walk from St. Stephen's Basilica. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance and the river was about 7 mins walk. The hotel was about 5 mins walk from Deák Ferenc Square which is where the airport bus drops you off. You need no.100 and can get the ticket from a machine by the bus stop or from the driver. It costs 900 forint (3-euro) per single ticket. The hotel and rooms are of modern decor. There was a kettle and tea/coffee in the room and also a hairdryer. The staff on reception were helpful with maps and directions and the staff in the dining room were efficient and friendly. Breakfast was the usual fayre - various breads, pastries and cakes. Cereal, fruit and yogurt. There was also a cold meat and salad bar as well as cooked items every day. There were various fruit juices and water as well as tea and coffee readily available. I would happily stay here again.

What a gem of a hotel. Amazing location. Super staff just the best especially Georgina at reception who could not have been more helpful and friendly. The hotel is super clean n bed so comfortable. If ur looking for an amazing hotel in a fantastic location and good price well u wont beat the Central Basilica. Recommend 100%. Thank you for a great stay.

Fantastic view of St Stephens Basilica. Central location. Spacious rooms with modern design but lack in some amenities. Breakfast had a lot of choices but none of them was something special, most of them average things served in a hotel. In general, I consider the price too high for what is offered.

Quick online check in - An excellent price of £75 for a room with a suit. Clean tidy and an excellent breakfast. Clean well equipped room and a really comfortable bed. A really friendly late night porter did the booking in

Fantastic located although it was originally a little hard to find during the new year festivities. They organised a hotel taxi transfer for us which cost 30 euros but the man was waiting at the airport for us. The hotel is classy and well looked after. The rooms have all the basic needs but presented very elegantly. Hotel includes free WiFi with details available at the front desk. Location is the number one things here bought for any traveller. Based eight in the middle of the city. 5-10 Minute walk to the river and 30ee ins walk to the Basilica. Customer service also very friendly and in multiple languages

Excellent location and very close to the beautiful Basilica. Friendly and very helpful staff.Comfortable and very clean room. Bathroom spotlessly clean.Thought the breakfast could have been better with a bIt more choice.

This was an amazing Hotel. We had a room with an amazing sight on the balcony of the church :)) And the kitchen has a microwave, fridge, oven, stove, ect,... And nearby there a bunch of cool stuff like their hostel :))

We spent 4 fabulous days in the beautiful city of Budapest and our experience was made even better by being lucky enough to have chosen the Central Basilica. It a lovely little hotel just steps away from St Stephens Basilica as well as numerous bars and restaurants. The hotel's décor is very minimalist and tasteful as well as being spotlessly clean with beds and towels changed daily. We stayed in one of the standard rooms on the inside of the hotel. The room was a good size with a lovely big bathroom - I would have preferred a shower rather than a bath but that's just me. Breakfast was included. It included a nice selection of cold meat, cheese, yoghurt, fruit,bread etc as well as some hot food including eggs - provided a good start to our daily wanderings. The young man who was on duty most morning (sorry didn't catch his name) made the whole process look effortless as did all the staff in the hotel, they were there if you needed them otherwise they just blended in - very professional. Totally recommend this charming hotel and will definitely use again on our next visit to Budapest. One very little request would be a price list for the mini-bar would be helpful

I spent 1 night in the hotel, and a series of unfortunate events happened to me all at once. First, I have asked for a lamp in my room, since I had to work and there was a beautiful desk without a lamp (and the room had terrible enlightenment). Impossible to get it, even the hotel manager was not able to help. Then, my room was quite cold and the thermostat was broken.... so I had a long hot shower, and of course the fire/fog alarm went on. Of course, regardless from the temperature outside and the broken thermostat, I was compelled to keep the windows open "for 15 minutes" !!! Last, breakfast is really not adequate for a 4-star hotel. Location is however great.
