4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Hotel is located just 5 min from Metro Line 2 Red( Puskas ferenc Station). You can easily plan tourist destinations from here.That was the plus. Rooms had tea /coffee maker facility. When we entered the rooms it felt warm; so adjust the temp accordingly. We stayed during the Easter weekend, Our room was not cleaned the first night so we had to request for cleaning and it was then done. The bills are all in their local currency (HUF) even when you pay in Euro.

We stayed here for 2 nights early June, The hotel itself is a very clean & tidy hotel. It has everything you need. We asked for a double room - we were given two singles pushed together which we didn't mind. Our room was on the 3rd floor, very clean, nice bathroom, tea & coffee facility. Couldn't ask for more!! The hotel itself is in a bit of a run down area..... there is a metro station just around the corner (please remember to validate your ticket before gettin on the metro) Only 4 stops from the city center. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant.. can;t comment on that. The pool is small.... & gets busy! So we didn't bother. Otherwise great little hotel.. will be back again!!

My stay at the hotel was generally very good with the staff friendly and helpful, very good facilities and good quality rooms. The hotel provides excellent value for money, is right beside a tube station for easy access to the city centre and has a well equipped gym, swimming pool and sauna. The rooms were well equipped, the beds comfortable and the showers more than adequate. Overall a really good stay, thank you!

I had to wait at check-in for a few hours, and we sometimes waited the elevator, however the room was quiet and clean. The location is very nice. Metro station is near to the hotel, and it takes a few minutes on foot. And it takes about 10 minutes to Area shopping center on foot.

Room 248 was perfect. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. HouselHousek to be applauded whole hotel spotless. Loved the pool and use of robes was very welcome. Felt breakfast had on one day wasn't good value more thought needed on how it's presented. Will definitely stay again. Metro, buses and trolleybus 2 mins away. Slightly far out if you want drink/nightlife although can get drink in hotel.

Overall a very fine hotel, the staff was very polite and helpful. The breakfast was ordinary but fine quality. The room was okay but the bedes need madras replacement, the are worn out on room 446. Will be back for three weeks in January, I hope the room will be more Nice to steeplechase in.

First of all, I would never stay at your hotel again nor recommended it to anyone. The reception and restaurant staff have an appalling attitude which needs serious attention. I found most items on the breakfast menu inedible

I'm often in Budapest because of my dental needs, and I always stay at Hotel Arena. I like Hotel Arena because it's accessible to all transportations. It's just a few minutes' walk from the Metro Station. The reception staff are friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is fine, but it could definitely need a makeover. Variety would have been nice. In all the times I've stayed in the hotel, breakfast has been the same, even the sliced and very dry grapefruit, the only fresh fruit being served during breakfast (aside from the fruit cocktail servings). During our last night, our room was not made up. When housekeeping came, she was only bringing towels with her. I told her we need toilet paper, too, and she should at least clean the bathroom. She wasn't very happy about it. So i told her,

Air conditioner no working properly. Room dated and dirty. Tub very high and bathroom very small, it was like a sauna can’t get dress inside. No amenities (soap dispenser only) Found pubic hairs on my pillow

Very very rude unhelpful staff never a smile or a good morning rooms very small cleaning of rooms not very good breakfast good however it was like a rat run trying to get food no outside sitting space at all
