King's Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stay two nights in a triple room.It was our first time in Budapest.The room was very dirty.The carpet was full of splodges and I think they don't washed it by years now.In the room was missing the bath liquid,shampoo,and bath soap.The only good thing that they have in the hotel were the reception guys that were very helpful and very politely!The name of the hotel doesn't match with the conditions that they offered to the customers.
Travelled here in August with 15 other guys on a stag weekend.Stayed at kings for three nights and it was ideal for what we wanted rooms were basic but clean and tidy,breakfast not so good but hotel very central and plenty of places to go and eat nearby,staff were very helpful.Would use it again for similar trip but not with my wife as a bit less comfortable than she would like.
The room I stayed in was 305. I am not a picky person, when it comes to hotels - all I need is a comfortable bed and a bathroom, working Wi-Fi. The room had really thin walls, so I could hear everything (even the snoring) coming from the room next to mine. It is probably not hotel's fault, but there was some construction work going on next to it, so I would wake up every morning to the drilling noise. Pillow cases were dirty. The staff didn't seem too friendly, although I did try to make eye contact with them each time I'd leave the hotel or come back in the evening. If you need a Wi-Fi connection, the one at the hotel doesn't seem to work properly, or maybe because the room was a bit further from the modem. I am really thankful for letting me to check-in earlier, because I was very tired after the flight and needed some rest. The room also had a double bed, although I requested a single room. Thumbs up for that. The location is what matters the most when I travel and it was great, a walking distance to metro station or the parliament or the Liberty bridge etc.
Pro's: - Excellent location, right in the heart of Budapest. - Friendly, helpful staff. - Clean bedding and towels. - Air conditioning worked a treat. - Huge amount of Bars, Cafes, Restaurants. Con's: - Breakfast wasn't for the English appetite. - Hotel requires refurbishment / updating. - Cleanliness requires attention to detail. - No English spoken TV. - The lift was a scary ordeal. ( Floor moved / bounced ) - Definitely not 3 Star, more like 1.5 or 2 max. - Caters for Stag / Hen Parties. - No view from room. Summery: You get what you pay for I guess !, but Budapest does have an IKEA and they could make this hotel great if they invested a few HUF into it. it doesn't cost the earth and it's just not necessary to have a broken lampshade, wood chip wallpaper or a contemporary decor scheme these days. The outdated decor and styling reminds me of a Skegness B&B back in 1982.
I stayed in the Kings Hotel with 5 other mates during August this year whilst in Budapest for a weekend The hotel is in a superb location being right near one of the main bar drags and only a 10 minute walk away from the Danube and everything it has near it We were met by a very helpful receptionist (forgotten his name. Sorry!) who's English was excellent and couldn't have been more helpful! The rooms were good enough for us 6, not the cleanest (walls and the floors looked like they could have done with a paint and a ripping up) but we barely spent anytime in there! We didn't have any breakfast as it is only on from 07:00-10:00 a time we were definitely not up for! Be prepared upon checkin that a sum of around 15000HUF or €50 is required as a deposit from each person so ensure you have cash when you get there
Hotel was decent - Good, large, clean room. Some choices for vegetarians at breakfast but little in terms of cooked food. As a vegan, you need to provide your own margarine and soya milk as they are not provided. No problems with this. Plenty of local supermarkets and there is a fridge in the room.
Just returned from a city break in Budapest and stayed at this hotel. The room was clean and Air con was a blessing. Breakfast offered a wide variety of choices and was a great was to start the day. The best thing about this hotel is it''s location in the old Jewish quarter, and so many of the tourist sites are within a 15-30 minute walk.
Hi The rooms are old but everything works properly, but what made me angry was that after we returned from out and when a new guy that hasn't even met us before was at the reception , when we asked him for our room keys, he just gave it to us by telling the number of the room! He didn't even ask our names! It could be anyone asking! And we had our important valuable things at rooms! Stealing from the people's rooms in this hotel for a thief must be super easy! Another thing is that they charged us for our dog 15€, I'm traveling at least every 2 months and no pet allows hotel ever charged me extra for my doggy.
Good location, surrounded by a few back street bars and restaurants. A short walk from the Synagogue And the hop on hop off bus routes also the underground. Room was basic and clean if not a bit dated, but importantly it had the necessities - Hair dryer, safe, mini bar Staff were friendly and helpful.
Last day here, must say it's not as bad as the reviews suggest. Yes it's old and a little stained in places and could probably do with a revamp. But it was very clean and comfortable. We were on the top floor in room 504, air con was fantastic and free as was the kettle, safe and fridge ( always had to pay extra for these at other hotels). Breakfast was only just ok tho it was edible. The coffee was nice tho. It's the perfect location for going sight seeing or for drinks . We would defiantly stay here again
