Hotel Fortuna

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Four of us (me, wife, mother-in-law and friend) went on a budget break to Budapest. Flights and four nights/bed and breakfast at the Fortuna cost £120 per person. Let's face it - you shouldn't expect too much for that. The place is basic but clean, almost a throwback to a building of the eastern bloc but with a few refinements. Our room was spacious, light and very warm. Yes the furniture was dated and reminiscent of "Homes Under The Hammer" before the modernisation takes place. But we were after somewhere to lay your head and get a good breakfast in the morning. The hotel ticked both boxes. Add to that a very friendly and helpful receptionist called Sophie (who printed off our boarding cards the day before we left) and the fact that the hotel is situated 500 yards from the Metro station, and you have a decent base for your tour of the city.

I would not recommend staying here if it is your first time visiting the city or if you prefer staying in the city. It is in a very awkward location, not near any convenient shops or restaurants. When arriving (never visited the city) we were unsure where or how to get to the city centre. We felt very isolated during the stay. The hotel is 5 stops from the city centre. If you are confident using the metro and don't mind basic hotel rooms, then this hotel is a good fit for you. Unfortunately, I am not this traveler and found the hotel inconvenient, out of date and uncomfortable to stay in. The breakfast was also very basic. On the plus side, the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant.

There are may be better 3 star hotels in Budapest , but this one is convenient for in the middle of the night arrival and departure by public transport. Good public transport connection to the city center. Outdated TV with only 2 channels ( in Hungarian) . The breakfast is very modest, more like 2 stars

Lovely place and handy distance en route to airport and city center. I was staying for one night on a flight from Dubai and then to England the following day. The hotel allowed me to check in at 2am and then offered to look after my case the next day while I explored the city. I could then pick up my case on way back to airport which was very helpful. The room was nice and cosy and smelled lovely! Great value.

Usually I don't go by reviews but I wish I did this time,this hotel has got to be the worse hotel I have ever stayed in,the rooms needs modernising,cleaning properly as there's insects,cobwebs and other things around especially mosquitoes which was weird and got a lot of bites to prove it.... For a continental breakfast it was so basic.... The only thing decent here was the shower which had hot water If u are thinking in staying here please read the reviews as they are true

Very friendly and helpful personal.Otto (very kind receptionist) helped very much with locating attractions and other things. Night shift personal was also very kind. The hotel is located very close to underground station. I would recommend this hotel for families with 2 or more children and for groups of friends.

The worst hotel i experienced, after not accepting their touristic bus offer, their behaviour changes, the guy on reception was so stupid after asking him to clean the room, they didn't clean it after 3 nights, room wasn't clean, bathroom smelling very bad and old!!!!! Breakfast so poor and hotel in general was noisy. Don't recommend anyone this hotel.

The worst room that i booked in my life!Don t go there.There is mould everywhere in the bathroom and stains all over the place.The windows didn t close proper and there was a water leek.The shower was full of rust stains.I booked it for the low price but is was a bad decision.You can find better hotels for that money.Don t go there!

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.
