Recent guest reviews

Big rooms and cheap minibar and good location of hotel. Very useful and friendly staff.Small and old beds, generally is hotel little bit of old. Parking place is in garage of another hotel. Hotel don't have restaurant and offer only breakfast, which is ok.

Very good location. Few minutes walk to the tram and bus stations. Very friendly and helpful staff. Decent spread for Buffet breakfast . Room was ok. There were beautiful painting exhibited in the gallery as well as in the corridors ( few of them for sale)

I met with reception staff upon my arrival and the gentleman was so uninterested and rude. I went up to my room and it hadn't even been hoovered properly. Luckily the bedding and bathroom were clean and usable. Location is great and you can pretty much walk everywhere but I would not stay here again.

We reserved for 2 rooms, being 2 couples. One of the rooms, 411, was better, the lingerie and the towels were clean, the bathroom also clean, but the mini bar fridge did not worked and the single bed was broken. The other room, 401, was very very smelly, we talked with the receptionist, but he told us that he will have another room, but the second day. Also he told us that the room was not used, but if we will use the shower, the smell will go away. We brought a room deodorant, used the shower and everything, but without any result and stayed there 2 nights, but it was horrible. The third day we asked to change the room, they offered us 311 room, but this room also it was very smelly. We asked to change again the room and we received 412, which was a normal room without a bad smell. Please take into consideration that the toiletries include only a very small soap and some shower gel in a bottle in the shower. We preferred not to have breakfast there, but in the evening we asked if we can eat there and they told us that they can serve dinner only to groups. The good part it was that the receptionist were very nice and they helped us changing the rooms and also they borrowed us a knife when we needed it, the wifi is working properly, the distance to the center is 30 minutes walking, in the area you have a 24/7 shop and a Spar supermarket, if you want to grab something. In conclusion, I would never go to this hotel and I will not recommend it.

An old building which has been pleasantly adapted to a small hotel. Comfortable and well-located. Everything efficiently done and clean and tidy. Staff were fantastically helpful with a number of (non-hotel) issues and really made me feel welcome. A very decent buffet breakfast.

A small and warm-feeling hotel, my room was a single with all requirements met. No view (other than overlooking other rooms within the block), but clean, and perfectly functional. Staff helpful, breakfast good value for 5 Euros, and location couldn't be better for public transport. Those posting poor reviews are clearly unrealistically expecting more than the price will allow.

Please dont go there, very old building...we locked ourselves in the bathroom by accident because the door didnt close well, so we had to break it to get out. The reception staff is good but the man with gray curly hair...he was rude from the moment we checked in. We asked him for tickets for the szechenyi baths and he sold us for the spa too (we didnt asked for it) and also didnt explain the conditions, so when we got there we couldnt enter because of the hour (he didnt tell us about the entrance timing). When we returned to the hotel to get our money back, another man of the staff told us that it was our problem because he asked him (curly gray hair man) about our problem and guess what...he said that he explain to us everything!! Anyways, this other man gave us our money back, but I think is terrible that this guy lied about it. Its very sad that this hotel has such bad opinions....the only positive thing is the location of it.

We stayed at Unio for a short break. The hotel was of old traditional style with clean comfortable rooms. Based in between to Metro stops it was a great location to see the sights of the city. There was a good choice for breakfast, a cooked or continental style was available with a choice of juices, fruit teas and coffee. Gluten free option too. If you like Earl Grey tea then you are in luck as this is the only tea served as in most places in Budapest. If you want breakfast tea then bring your own! The staff were very helpful and helped us navigate our way around Budapest. Great for a short stay.

Friendly staff. Room was a bit dusty outdated but ok. Nice clean bathroom, was traveling in november so it was nice to take a hot and long bath after all day walking in the city. Breakfast was good, had everything you need to start a day.

The hotel is very central just a few metres away there are all type of transport to all Budapest. Reception staff is helpful. The room was big but needs a little bit of restoration while the carpets in rooms some times are not cleaned but the toiletries are changed every day. The break fast has a good variety of food to choose from but the linen on the tables is not changed regularly some times they are left dirty for more than 2 days. On my last day the lift was not working and I had to take down all my laguage down stairs 5 stories on my own with no help from the staff. When I asked the reception he told what can I do if the lift is not working. But after all I recommend this Hotel.
