Novum Hotel Golden Park Budapest4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Located just off the main railway hub of Keleti. Shouting distance of the tram and metro stations. However, far from the city center. Previous reviews had made me a bit skeptical about the hotel. It was not very clean certainly with old carpets and upholstery. However, the room linen and towels were spotless (was a concern in many reviews). The rooms lacked kettle, had decent wifi. Had booked two rooms: 419 and 423, of which one had a strange odor (like it had not been opened for a long time), to which the staff agreed and changed the room in 5 minutes. Breakfast was just fine, but a bit late (after 7). Front desk was helpful with good English and information.
We had a large room with ensuite bathroom and fridge and sitting area. Unfortunately the television was very old so we dont know if it worked, didnt take a chance. The room was clean and comfortable and also very quiet considering it was on the 6th floor above a busy road! The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast sufficient. The hotel is opposite the Keleti Station so very central for travel. The hop on hop off bus was also a good way to find our way around the city. All in all, good value for money!
The location of this hotel is good. Our room was small but clean, beds comfortable and bathroom adequate. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The negative is that the hotel needs a bit of tlc and a coat of paint.
Arrived in the evening and found our room virtualyy unready still containing the previous occupants underwear in the shower !!! - the room was next tot he tram terminus end of line and quite noisy all night if the window was lef topen. the hotel in general was tired and dated and a long way from the city, breakfast was so bad we gave up after the first day and went to starbucks we wont be staying here again
I stayed at this hotel on my stag do. We had four rooms of three and all the rooms had the basics and what you'd need for a weekend away - although we'd have preferred rooms together and not all on separate floors! Yes, the décor is very dated and old fashioned, but there isn't anything genuinely wrong with the place. It was decent enough to just go back for a shower and change & then off out again. We never had any problems or issues with anything. Towels and bedding were changed during our stay. What else do you really need? The staff were pleasant and tolerant even though we came and went at all times of day/night. The bar staff were happy enough to serve us, although it is a little more pricey than typical Budapest bars, it's still reasonable. Especially when you're using the monopoly money that is forint. The location is bang on. It's right next to a subway entrance and there are always taxis knocking about. Adjacent to the hotel is KFC, Mcdonald's and Burger King which is always handy. We had breakfast included in our package, but I only made it down for that once. It was just your typical continental breakfast with the additional of Hungarian spiced sausage. Not too bad, but nothing spectacular. Overall, a pleasant stay and for the price I have no complaints. I can see why hotel snobs are pulling their faces at the four star rating. But, if you're looking for something a bit more modern and fancy then don't go cheap!
We travelled in August 2017 in Budapest with a group of Greek tourists from Athens...When we arrived at the hotel we thought that we forgot how to count...4 stars??? Hilarious! Dirty entrance (creepy at night without many lights), thick old carpets attached to the floor at the corridors and in the rooms that have not been cleaned since last century. In the room the carpets were torned out in order to change some old cables (and never repaired of course). There was something like "mini bar" and something like "tv" in there, because an empty (even a bottle of water, since we arrived with 35 Celsius degrees) non freezing machine is not called "mini bar" and a crt television (with only hungarian chanels) is not called tv in 2017. The whole room had two free sockets for customers far away from our beds (very convinient for charging your phone in order to hear near you the alarm). We were lucky since our sheets and towels were clean, contrary to our friends' rooms that were not cleaned. (the reception said that they did not have proper time and they forgot to clean it!!!)- Remember: 4 stars hotel!!!! The bathroom was extremely narrow and there no personal grooming products of course. The breakfast was poor, with many products that we did not know what they were, since there was no product description and the stuff could not explain to us furtheremore, because their english seem to be in embryonic status (very convinient for allergic people as you may understand). The dinner was just bland (we ate just once, couldn't stand second). When our agent made complaints about the condition, the formal answer was: " we are planning a renovation, so we can provide you no more facilities". No comment! The only pros that we found: a) the position of the hotel ( opposite the main railway of Budapest), b) the aluminum windows that had good soundproof (but without mesh panels to avoid many insects that live there..) and c) the polite and willing men at the reception. So think before you book or ask them if they started...renovating!
This is a very minimal standard hotel for a group. The hotel lobby looks like a 1950s communist era lounge for low level party affiliates, the front desk service is young men hanging around talking, phones and TVs in rooms not functioning and the area is marginal. All 41 of our group was shocked by the stained rugs and dirty shower curtains. Real disappointment. Close to the M2 which was the only positive. I have traveled with groups for 17 years, have very minimal standards for hotels and this is one of the worst 5 I have stayed at.
The staff were very friendly and a credit to the hotel. The hotel itself is located next door to the train station which is great but still a metro journey away from the city centre. The room was very old, carpet is stained a bit dirty and needs replacing. The shower curtain doesnt fit properly and the bathroom gets flooded easily. The bed was ok and it was overall comfy enough :) lets face it, its a budget hotel and does what it says on the tin. Nothing special and plenty of better places to stay.
The service is excellent, took care of every problem very quickly But the rooms are not 4 stars at all not even 3. The breakfast is ok The hotel location is great and next to all public transportation
I booked via tourist agency this 4 star hotel, a standard single. Positiom of the hotel very good, close to any way of transport and eastern railway statio. The room I received was owful, wonr out, far not a 4 star standard room, maybe 2 star ??? in the bathroom towels very old, torn, just liquid soap, poor old plastic curtain at shower, bed ok, tv with very few channels, no sport channel at all, not the best image. Corridor carpets vey very dirty. Breakfast ok, but no toaster no fruits, Over all if you have another option do not book it... pice was 50 euro...too much for this
