My goodness, there is a sign outside at the street but I couldn't understand where the hotel was: it looks like an abandoned factory. Breakfast is awful and simple (eggs, ham, orange syrup, filter coffee), and it's away from the city center. I found a woman's hair on my bed so it's confirmed they don't change the sheets. It's old, appliances are from the 70s from its looks, same for furniture. Rooms are in quite a bit of bad shape, and the whole place is sepulcral silent, not even ambient music for breakfast. No shampoo in the bathroom, but they left a hands soap package in the shower (pfff). I really regret coming here. At least AC works in hot Budapest.. it's 500m away from the metro, supermarkets are 20' by foot or 19' by metro, not conveniently located. Only one Chinese restaurant next door and you're stuck in an awful hotel.
First of all the rooms were terrible my bed had ants in side also the room walls were very hollow also the shower was never hot and the door had no lock, breakfast was rubbish cold toast, warm milk. nothing positive to say about this hotel. Also the bedroom was never cleaned and never had fresh towels it was a disgusting 3 days.
Stayed for 4 nights during Hungarian GP in 2016. Rooms and toilets are dirty, furniture is extremely old, TV is the size of my tablet. During our stay, wifi did not work in our room, with different excuses every day and no real attempt to fix it. the only good thing is free parking overnight and location near metro station.
Hotel very close and easy to find from metro station on line 3. Room was at the back and very quiet. There was handwash in the bathroom but no soap or shower gel/shampoo provided. Shower had decent pressure and good hot water. Breakfast quite simple but enough to eat though hot food very limited and not on offer one morning but there didn't appear to be many staying in the hotel. Always a friendly cheery person on Reception both day and night. Fridge in room but no telephone. The bin in the room was emptied every day but bed wasn't made up or towels changed though I had a twin room and a spare set of towels as backup. Very reasonable for the price especially if you want to spend most of your time exploring the city and checking out the spas. There was a bar and a lounge area though never used these.
at first our journey from the nepliget bus station to the hotel looks kinda a lil bit creepy.dark roads,closed hospital,unique gate entrance of hotel.well,it is actually because we arrived late at night in winter.don't worry. ;) the room was nice for the price.free breakfast.we're students with tight budget.so it was comfortable and good for us.
I usually take reviews with a pinch of salt. So, even after reading Beatriz N's review a couple of days before setting off, I was still of an open mind. Having stayed there, I can only say that the review written by Beatriz N was pretty much spot on. I maybe wouldn't quite rate it as 1 star, but certainly no more than 2. I'm basing this on the low price paid. I can only guess that Beatriz N was as unfortunate as myself & my brother and the clerk in question was a youngish chap who I'm pretty sure didn't want to be there. His manner certainly alluded to this. On our last night we encountered the happy chap again after a day out in the city. It took him all his time to serve us at the bar & when he did, he snatched my money from me & almost threw my change back at me. All of this without a please or thank you, of course. There were two members of staff who were decent, though the cleaning staff were about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike. Not once did they come in & clean the room, change (or even make) the beds & the towels (1 bath, 1 hand) were not changed either. They must have also attended the same charm school as the happy clerk, as on the first morning I smiled & said hello when I saw four of them in the corridor on the way to breakfast. This gesture was met by three blank looks & one scowl. Possibly the only thing to come out of it with any shred of credit apart from the previously mentioned two members of staff is the bed. Though it was a standard size single (which I normally fall out of) & the mattress was firm, I had three enjoyable nights sleep. The room, though clean & tidy enough for two blokes, had mismatched furniture which looked like MFI circa 1972 & a portable TV so miniscule I had to put my reading glasses on to see it. The shower room/toilet was poorly lit, the shower had mould in it & the sink had no plughole. The chipboard (yes, chipboard) walls were useless regarding soundproofing. I would neither visit this hotel again nor recommend it. This is the first bad review I've written & I hope it's the last.
Our first impression when we got to the hotel was that we were going through the back door. In fact, there was not a front door. We followed the arrows pointing to the so called entrance, which led us to an elevator that was switched off. As it turned out, the elevator doesn't work after 12am. We climbed two stories and faced a front lobby with slumber lights, and a clerk who was far from nice. But the worst came when we stepped into our rooms. After a corridor with a carpet with stains all over, when we opened the door we saw a dark and claustrophobic room, with tiny windows and very damaged furniture. The refrigerator stunk, the sheets were old and uncomfortable and the paint on the walls was peeling off. The bathroom was horrible, with mould and rust everywhere. In the morning, we were hoping that the breakfast was at least acceptable, but in was in fact poor on variety, quality and cleanliness. One star would be overrating this hotel. I world even say: this hotel shouldn't be open.
The room was not clean as I found hair under my pillow and bed sheet was smelly like it was not washed for a while. Toilet is smelly when I opened the door as air ventalation is not good. Everything else is good: location, basic breakast.
If you don`t expect much it is fine. The room was small and old but clean and smelled nice, bedmatreses were perfectly hard. The window could`t be opened so I was really happy for aircondition. The parking is by the street and free of charge and in the night till 7 am inside the guarded parking. Breakfast was ok, staff was allways watching that everything was ok. I think that this is a family hotel, people were nice.
The room was not what we had expected, however since we had only paid £27.50 per night for 2 people, the hotel was more than adequate. The room was clean and had all the facillities we needed. The wifi was good and free unlike many more expensive hotels. There was a good selection at breakfast and the serving times were more than adequate. Location was a little far out from the city centre and took over an hour to walk however it was less than 5 minutes walk to the nearest Metro station which was very cheap and covers all the main tourist attractions (with regular services every few minutes). Staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel as a cheap budget hotel or an upmarket hostel, excellent value for money.
