Recent guest reviews

4 nights in s very handy Budapest location Clean, newly refurbished room, good breakfast, helpful staff. Would definitely recommend it. Be warned if you have heavy luggage... There is no lift, the building is probably listed. No problem climbing the stairs if you are healthy.

Nice place, good location walking distance around 10-15min to margit island. Room has bathtub, wifi etc. Good value of price. Quite close to metrostation. Recommended. Stuff was nice. Supermarket and some other shops near.

Not well visible from the street initially, the Hotel feels much like a hostel. That said, we did not pay much for it so knew what we were getting. The room was clean/tidy and the reception staff were friendly enough. We had booked a double but the beds were twin so just pushed them together, The corridor was sometimes loud at night as the walls/doors were thin but earplugs solved this problem. Overall, a decent hotel that did what we needed it to.

Stayed for 4 nights at this extremely conveniently located hotel. If you catch the bus and metro from the airport you will have only about 100 metres to walk which is great if the weather should be inclement. When we arrived and actually got the feel for the layout of the city and tourist sites (and sights) we realised that this bottle of perfect for so many. Near good restaurants, cafes, trams, buses. What's the hotel like? We were made very welcome. Reception staff not gushing but pleasantly helpful. Breakfast in the adjoining bistro was adequate and you could eat all you wanted. Room was very clean. Advise though, that no lift and since the ceilings were originally high it is 40 steps to 2nd floor. Our room was quiet. Wonderful for the price.

This hotel is obviously basic in its offerings - but we had a fantastic stay here nonetheless. Positives: super comfy beds, excellent shower, good size room and bathroom, mini fridge, kettle provided on request, room is a good temperature and we weren't facing the road so room was very quiet. Main positive is the staff who were always helpful and friendly. Only negative I can think of is that there's no lift and our room was at the end of a long corridor. Didn't ruin a great stay!

A good 3 star hotel in a great location. Easily accessible on the blue line at Nyugati station. Our room faced out onto a side street so the noise was not an issue. The bed was a little on the hard side and only one pillow was given. The bathroom was clean and the shower powerful, although was small inside. The staff were very helpful; giving directions, suggesting ways to reach places, printing out boarding passes and arranging a taxi (a taxi to the airport cost 9000 huf with a tip. We arrived in the morning so got there via the 200e bus and the metro- you can purchase tickets in the airport). They even let us check in early upon arriving from the airport. You have to leave your key with reception when leaving, but the reception was 24 hour (we were told). Overall, very good and helpful staff with rooms as you would expect for the rating.

We booked into the City Ring as part of our holiday deal with British Airways and it was exceptionally good value with breakfast included. We checked in no problems and found our large triple room which had a small high window overlooking the main road. The pillows were a bit thin but we all slept comfortably. Wi Fi was OK which suited our 15 year old son. We were able to store water and drinks in the fridge provided. There wasn't a safe in the room and so we used the one available at reception. Shower was powerful but the cubicle was a bit small. We had breakfast in the bistro next door and it was adequate to start the day. Our flight home was late afternoon but we were able to leave our bags in a small service room and came back to collect them later. Staff were always pleasant and helpful and the street noise didn't bother us. The hotel is in a great location near a few tram stops and close to Nyugati Palyaudvar railway station which is on the metro No 3 blue line which is the main airport link.

I was worried when we first arrived (but I had read the review on Trip Advisor). The hotel is very shabby but the room was actually better than the corridors and reception. It was a large room and was very clean. The beds were comfortable but I could have done with two pillows. The TV worked but we did not need it as there was so much to do in Budapest that we left the hotel after breakfast and did not return until the early hours of the morning. We had a few drinks in the Bistro attached to the hotel on the first night and had a few drinks, the food looked very nice and we were going to go back and eat there but we never made it back. We did have breakfast in there which was okay but there are lots of cafes around. The staff at the City Ring were so friendly and helpful. We bought a Hop On Hop Off bus ticket from the reception and on another day they advised us to walk up to the Metro (about 5 minutes walk) to buy a day travel card to use the buses, trams and Metro. We really wanted to see a Klezmer band and one member of staff looked up where we could go and marked it on a map for us. It is very shabby but the location is excellent and the staff are fabulous. I would stay there again.

Well the hotel is pretty economic so you get what you pay for I guess. The rooms are very small, and not very clean. The location is exceptionally good, if you're there on business or leisure it's located in one of the busiest streets of budapest and where a lot of dinning places are around you. I didn't have time to explore the city since I was there on strictly business. But for what I paid I'd say it was ok, breakfast wasn't bad and the staff were always trying to be friendly. I can't say if they're friendly or not, but there were always trying to be. Good hotel, serves it's purpose.

This hotel is located on a busy road, which makes it quite central and rather noisy. The rooms are tired and in need of renovation. One room has a filthy carpet and the bathroom was dirty too. The worst problem was a strong smell of gas in one of our rooms, which the manager claimed he could not smell. On our insistence of moving to another room, we were told that they were full. They were suddenly able to move the guests, however, when we refused to allow the teenagers to sleep there. You can certainly find something better than this hotel in Budapest!
