Recent guest reviews
Stayed for 3 nights and would happily stayed longer. Reception staff were excellent as were bar staff. Breakfasts were very good with helpful staff despite the hotel being full of competitors for the kick boxing competition who all arrived early for breakfast. Rooms were too warm for me as aircon was turned off. Opening the balcony door solved the problem. The pool as good and clean as was sauna but floor was slippy from excess water due to the high volume of residents mostly just back from competition. Overall very good
We stayed 3 day's & the day we arrived as we want to combine the 2 single bed become 1 arrangement, we found out under the bed was very dirty a 1 pair of white sock. Immediately we inform the front desk & they transferred us to other room, no more sock but under the bed was very dirty, a lot of dust, the mirror in the toilet was not clean up properly, as well as the remote control of the tv. It was disgusting to found out under the bed a sock, dust, really dirty. They should be strict of the cleanliness. Head of the house keeping must be double check & alert about it.
My stay here was very good although only for 2 nights, staff are good and there is a garden for the smokers, weather was good enough to sit out there in the evening. I enjoyed my stay here although it is a little way from the city you can walk through the park to Hero Square which is quite a sight.
This hotel dots all the I's and crosses the T's for accommodation, clean, comfortable rooms. A pool with a Jacuzzi and the best pool in the tour. We were told that towels were supplied by the spa but found only what looked like small cotton sheets but the did the job so no complaints. Food was OK and breakfast I had what could only be described as a joint of belly prok but I have eyes bigger than belly syndrome so I had some. An O K place to rest your head.
All together it's not bad. The rooms are in the average category, nothing special. Breakfast is copious focusing onto the hungarian foods. Parking area is good, not a big issue to get there. Location good.
We had a room with a great balcony opposite a church. The room was clean and very comfortable with a good bathroom. A large welcoming foyer with helpful staff. There are sitting areas inside and out of the foyer. Dining room was spacious and the food was varied and plentiful. We really enjoyed our stay and there is a wonderful restaurant within walking distance on the main road offering more genuine Hungarian cuisine. The hotel offers spa facilities, including a swimming pool, hot tub and sauna all free of charge. The locals prefer to use local Hungarian Forint instead of Euros and a 10 % tip is expected within the country. Highly recommend this hotel and staff. Would love to return in the future.
The hotel is well located, the place is in a quite and clean area and very smooth. the rooms are equipped with water saver, it's very hard to wash your hands or your faces unless you have all day... otherwise the rooms are ok, the breakfast is middle and need to be early otherwise you 'll be missing it.
We stayed at this hotel following a cycle tour from Vienna. It is quite a distance from the centre of the city &, apart from the church opposite, the surrounding area has seen better days! The welcome we received was cool bordering on hostile! However our request for a double rather than single beds was acted upon promptly & the room & bathroom were of a very good size. We had booked half board for the first of four nights & expected a limited choice of menu. However, we were told what we were to eat - a choice of one in each of the three courses & none particularly appetising! Each breakfast was adequate in quantity but quality was poor - croissants far from fresh, poor selection of yogurts, unappealing cooked fare - especially the tasteless scrambled egg - & notices stating we would be fined if any food or drink was removed from the restaurant! On the third day on our return, we discovered that our toiletries had not been replenished from our arrival & used glasses had not been washed. Not a hotel we would choose again!
It is a great pity that we can only award three stars to this hotel. The rooms and public areas are extremely nice, very clean and well kept. If only the restaurant and bar service standards could match this we would have given five stars. The food in the restaurant was first class but the service at the bar and in the restaurant was very poor. The hotel was extremely busy but there was only two staff to wait bar and tables. Staffing levels were completely inadequate the management need to take note.
I stayed in Budapest at this hotel for 15 days, my very first visit to Budapest. I went to participate in an international aquatic championship with a team from the USA. My stay at this hotel was very nice, close to public transit (bus/train/or tram) to and from the city center and our competition pool. The concierges were always very helpful, calling taxis for me (it's extremely difficult to hail a taxi in Budapest), and lending me a hotel umbrella on the days when there was rainfall. I also needed many extra towels for my two roommates and me, plus dozens of clothing hangers, and all was graciously supplied. The complementary large breakfast area was spacious with plenty of comfortable tables for all the hotel guests and my enormous team. This hotel has a spa area that is also quite nice, though its pool is rather cold, but with a little positive thinking one can consider it refreshing, while the jacuzzi was simply not hot enough though far better than nothing! I tried to schedule a massage with their in-house masseur, but he or she was never available in the morning nor at night when I could be there. I think this time frame could use some improvement, after all daytime is for visiting the absolutely magnificent city of Budapest! Housekeeping service was a little odd in comparison to the USA. They simply did not come unless a sign was hung on the room's doorknob, and when they did come, they did not pick up trash, such as food plastics left on tables, which again is the norm in the USA. I slept often on the sofa bed, and I liked it, though my roommates did not. It had an odd dip in it, but it did not bother me much. I do remember thinking that the other beds felt hard like trampolines. I guess this hotel could improve on mattress comfort too. They also have no bedsheets like in the USA. It was just a sheet plus a comforter (that often fell apart). Maid service did make beds and take out trash from trash cans, but if you are a messy guest, in general, that look will remain so! Lion's Garden became my home away from home. Thank you, Lion's Garden, for your hospitality! I absolutely treasured my stay in the infinitely interesting city of Budapest!
