Recent guest reviews

Hotel very conveniently situated next to an underground station within a few minutes from the centre. Very comfortable and friendly service. Rooms ok but requires more hanging and wardrobe space. Excellent Value.

Sometimes cleaning room was not completed 4 times in a 14 days visit. Or towls, no cleaning of bed / or bed ok and no towels, but old ones removed. Parking told free in garage, but still have to pay 2000FT/day At review part of this survey only "excellent"can be chosen for service,clearliness, etc

Stayed for three nights in August, nice clean efficiently run hotel, good breakfast, and didn't we appreciate the Air Conditioning. Not in city centre, but only a couple of stops on the brilliant metro - the station is less than two minute walk from hotel, and trains run at least every four minutes.

I had very pleasant stay at the Danubius Hotel Arena. The staff was very courteous and always available to help. The Hotel is clean and service very good. 1 would definitely consider coming back. Highly recommended Hotel .

I loved this hotel and I found it si cheap, it offers many services including a large option of breakfast. The rooms are clean, nice staff (thanks Daniel for your hospitality!), and it's right next to a metro station, so it's super easy to get to the center (around 5 min). The only thing I didn't like is that outside there are a few people who live on the street and ask for money, which made me feel unsafe.

We needed a one night booking and Danubius Hotel Arena was a great choice. The restaurant offered great Hungarian cuisine, and I will show a great dish-goulash stew with dumplings. It was unique. The room was really nice.

The hotel is very good and the staff is friendly. It is not int the town center, but all transportation is close by. The breakfast was good, and the restaurant is fine. The lobby staff where very helpful with information about the city.

I tried several hotels in Budapest and I did stay in this hotel just one night but this hotel was very convenient for me. I like the location, there is always action in the lobby and the restaurant is ok too. The hotel is classic and maybe even outdated but all is ok. The bedroom is allso oldfashioned but the airco is working well and the bathroom is ok with good waterpreassure on the shower. The bed is not too hard and the roomsize is ok to. I liked the friendlyness of the employee and as I will be in Budapest often I think this will be my home far away from home. Price against what you get is good

I stayed at the Danibus Hotel Arena while I was in Budapest for the FINA Masters Games. For the price of the hotel compared to other hotels in the inner city, I was very pleased. Public transportation is needed to get to the main sights so the hotel might want to ensure guests can navigate public transportation to get to the inner city area. Overall, I have absolutely no complaints. I was especially pleased with the breakfast buffet from 7-10 each morning. The food and drink selection was great. I got the breakfast included package when I made my reservation and I am glad I did. I was also really happy with the front desk employees. They spoke good English and the were very helpful when I needed assistance.

This is a budget hotel so don't expect too much! Characterless and in a part of the city that doesn't have a lot to offer in walking distance other than an enormous shopping mall. It could do with some outside space rather than one bench for smokers. We did have a couple of meals in the coffee bar area which were surprisingly good. Not gourmet by any means but perfectly adequate. We were there as part of deal with a dental clinic. If you don't want a fancy hotel, this will suffice. Budapest is a beautiful city and I would recommend anyone to visit.
