We stayed for 2 night at room 209. Was a triple room. The room was comfortable the bath was clean (they clean it every day). The room was a bit could but on the closet we have some blankets. The receptionist was very helpful( we forgot to ask for the name) . The breakfast was great. The hotel is near bus station ,night bar's,for only 10-15 min you are on Danube and shopping malls. Was my first time in Budapest,I enjoyed. If I go again I will go here .
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It’s clean which is the main thing, the carpet is pretty filthy though. Super dated and needs a revamp. Breakfast ok. Get one bed sheet with no mattress cover which I wasn’t impressed with. Was a bit tempted to book into another hotel.
Location wise is good, however the streets feel unsafe at night time. The room floors are discussing, very thin walls so you can hear everything in the halls. The elevator is a joke! I do not recommended you use it! However, the staff are all very nice, the bathroom was clean although very dated. There were no mattress protectors on the bed. There was an electrical socket hanging off the wall. Overall the hotel is very dated. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Despite the terrible hotel we had a very enjoyable mini break in Budapest. Such a beautiful City!
When we chose the hotel we knew it was basic. We did not know how much. We chose it mainly because of its location: location is not good but it is close to where we went. It would have been better to go farther. The hotel is between basic and poor, not clean, the room is poor, the bathroom is horrible, the toilet is violent, and the straw is dripping; we had to put paper so the drizzle would not drive us crazy all night long. The heating worked but even at the maximum, the room was very cold and we had to sleep with clothes. In the end, a surprise awaited us, and although everything was paid in advance, we had to pay another payment.
Me and my family stayed at this hotel from the 11-15th of December 2017. On arrival the hotel from outside did look gloomy and old.. once we arrived in the hotel we got settled in to find the lift had about enough room to fit 2 people and 2 suitcases in. Once we got into our rooms we instantly noticed the floors were absolutely filthy. For the whole holiday non of us dared to take our shoes off because the floors were that disgusting! Looking around the room the ceiling appeared damp in the corners, and then to top it all off our bathroom towels were stained!! Luckily we had bought our own towels! When it came to breakfast there appeared to be limited food. It tasted awful and I honestly wouldn't even feed it my dog! I had to spend more money eating out for breakfast for the rest of my stay! Security seems poor, we could leave our key behind the desk but wasn't asked for any identification etc when picking it up! And as well if you're looking for a good nights sleep you won't find it here. Walls are thin and there is a lot of noise outside during the early hours of the morning!! The location is central and we were lucky enough to walk to the centre everyday and used the hop on and hop off buses to get around which was great! Budapest is an amazing city and we enjoyed sight seeing and exploring the beautiful city it's just a shame the hotel was a let down!
How this hotel achieved 3 Stars is beyond me. The rooms are outdated and dirty and there is so much noise from outside and the other rooms. Security is a total joke, you could hand your key in to a member of staff on reception while you go out and a different member of staff would give you the key back with no questions asked on your return. They don’t even raise there head when anyone walks in. The shower was rubbish and the toilet was filthy. Breakfast is just not for the English appetite, we only had it the first morning and went elsewhere the rest of our stay. The only thing going for this hotel is that’s it’s warm and in a good location.
We booked 5 days in Budapest for our annual Christmas time break. Everything about our time in Budapest was wonderful apart from the hotel. We arrived very late and we checked in fine. Our room was on the 3rd floor and the steps were the start of many steps we would climb that holiday! We could have taken the lift but we liked the exercise and frankly the lift seemed as creaky and dated as the hotel. Our room was ridiculously hot and stifling. Even with the window open. Too hot to sleep at night. Unable to open window during the night because it was very noisy. Even with ear plugs I couldn’t sleep. Appreciate that people want to go out and have a good time, we do too but shouting and screaming at 3am ain’t funny. Not the hotels fault but like I said too hot without window open. It was either windows open far too noisy or windows shut far too hot. Bed comfortable, linen clean. Lighting awful, position of mirror silly so you could not put your make up on. Our hairdryer was great though, why don’t we have hairdryers in the bathroom in the uk? Our shower was broken with a massive crack in it so water went absolutely everywhere. Reported it but nowt done. Didn’t really affect our stay though. Breakfast was poor. Coffee good though. Staff extremely nice and smiley. One morning we arrived at breakfast about half 9 (ends at 10) and there was nothing left except coffee! Why say it ends at 10 then? Location was good, we managed to find the ruin bars and did all the sights by foot. Highlight for me was the Christmas markets and the Széchenyi thermal bath. Absolutely wonderful. We also found two cat pubs. We walked approx 15 miles a day and had a fabulous time. All in all we had an amazing time in Budapest and will definitely return. Possibly not to this hotel but at the end of the day it was clean and affordable for us if a bit dingy and basic.
Do not visit this hotel if you appreciate cleanliness and modern standards of living! Stopped here for 3 nights this weekend and dreaded going back to the room each day. We stayed out as long as we could. If we could have booked into another hotel, we would have done. The whole hotel is very dated and scruffy. There is zero security....The reception staff didn’t even look up when we entered or left the building. We left our key with them on the first night, and upon our return we just said our room number to get the key back. They didn’t even ask our name. So anyone can can gain access to a room key by just saying the room number. If you do happen to stay here, keep hold of your key. The safe in the room is free to use, but we didn’t feel comfortable leaving our passports or money in it as it was only bolted to a wooden wardrobe shelf. Not secured to the wall. There is also a free luggage store at the hotel, which is a locked room. But again, there were no security checks and anyone can get access to cases which aren’t there’s. The room walls are paper thin! I could hear everything from next door even with earplugs! The neighbours to our room were in and out all night every hour, up until 7:30am! The street is also noisy during the early hours of the weekend with people leaving the pubs and clubs. The bathroom extractor fan is also constantly running, so this is noisy too. The room cleanliness is very poor. We needed to keep our shoes on as the carpet was black with grime! The bathroom was mucky, the toilet brush looked as though it had cleaned a million soiled toilets. The walls were grey with muck and the ceiling was cracked in the corner from damp. Plug sockets were also coming away from walls in the bathroom. The showers was useless, as when it was turned on, it sprayed everywhere due to the pressure behind it. They are not high enough either....the shower head came to our shoulders. There is a hairdryer but they are dated and very slow. The only positives about the hotel were that it was warm and the bed sheets looked clean. The breakfast looked very unappetising and we didn’t dare eat any of the cooked food. We ate one croissant each on the first morning, then had breakfast elsewhere during the rest of our stay. This is also classed as a no smoking hotel, but there were people smoking in the walkways on the way up to the rooms. Will not be returning or recommending this hotel to anyone. Booked through Thomas Cook after their recommendation....Needless to say I will be contacting them too
We wanted to stay in this hotel for 3 nights and ended up staying 0. The hotel is in a not very clean street, but that is nothing they can do anything about. Still, the lobby is dirty and the furniture is very worn. The elevator is by far not big enough for 2 adults and a baby in a baby carrier, even though we had not much luggage. But the room we got was the worst thing about that hotel: the floor too dirty to even take your shoes off, the wall behind our beds should have been white but was dark grey, the bathroom was mouldy. Somehow the wall was like 4 or 5 meters high, which was quite uncomfortable as the room was very few square metres. The “children’s bed” was the only thing that seemed clean in the room but considering we were asking for an additional bed fitting for a few months old baby, what we got was not what we had expected. It was so dirty that we left right away. Funny fact: the cleaning staff was right at the same floor as we arrived, meaning a lot of towels and bedlinen lying around on the main floor. The only nice about our short stay there was the receptionist we met at our arrival, who was very eager to help us with sightseeing, internet access and so on and who really seemed to care. All in all, I would definitely not recommend anyone with a small child to stay in this hotel, even if it’s not too far from the city centre.
I recently stayed at King's Hotel in Budapest. It's a centrally located hotel with many pubs, bars and restaurants located near by. The rooms well designed, clean and off good size. The bathroom however, would have been easier to use if there was a complete shower, nevertheless it was clean and well maintained. The room does offer a kettle and mugs but you'll have to bring your own tea and coffee. The breakfast at the hotel was good with a wide range of food and drink to chose from. Majority of the staff at the hotel are very friendly and welcoming, but we did encounter one staff member who was quite rude and unhelpful on one of our nights spend there. Other than that, it's a good hotel to stay at if you're spending a few days in Budapest.
