Star City Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel has a very good staff, very nice people. It is very comfy place, nice clean room. Breakfast is still the same of average quality, but fresh and tasty. Staff speak very nice English. It is good located to Keleti pu station and 45min by walk to the centre, 10 min by walk to big great city park for those who like running and others outdoor sports. A lot of grocery stores and small pubs are around as well.

Our recent stay at the star city hotel was faultless and its always a pleasure when the staff are helpful as that made our trip easier as none of us spoke any Hungarian so booking taxis etc would be very difficult for us, the hotel was clean and tidy throughout and the staff were very friendly, the hotel was very good value for money and even the mini bar prices were very cheap. Thank you so much for a lovely time in Budapest.

The photos posted by the propriety, are very misleading in my opinion. They show a modern, warm environment, whereas the Hotel rooms are very depressing, outdated and in need of renovation. There was no place to place the bags, so I had to either open my bag on the floor or on the bed. I had one towel with a big hole in it. The remote control did not work, so I didn't even turn on the Tv. I complained about it, but all the help I got from the man at the reception that night, was that I should go downstairs for him to try it. The shower cabin didn´t close completely. And I could go on and on. The staff at the reception however were very nice and helpful. That said, only two of the girls there met this standard. The breakfast buffet, was variegated, albeit the food was somewhat tasteless (croissants, muesli, coffee with milk, apple juice namely) and some items went missing and were not replaced. The Hotel is located far from the city center, about 45 min on foot, but you may take the metro in nearby Keleti Station (about 10 min walk, if you go fast). The area where the Hotel is situated doesn't seem recommendable, especially at night. All in all, there is a lot to improve and I am writing this review so that others don't feel as disappointed as I did when I arrived there, because I had seen something on the photos posted by the Hotel and the reality was an entirely different thing.

Good room, awesome location and value for money. I will recommend this hotel to all. Will be planning another Budapest trip during Sep- Oct-2018. Hopefully I may be able to get the same hotel in future. Thanks for accommodating.

Just returned from a short break at this hotel. Pretty standard for a city hotel, rooms are big enough to use as a base, there are kept very clean and comfortable, good bathroom with fresh towels provided everyday. Fridge, minibar and safe box all in room. Breakfast good, buffet with usual european fare. About a 25 minute walk from the ruin bars and a bit further to the city centre. Lots of good bars close to the hotel and convenient for public transport. Within easy walking distance of heroes square. Taxi fare from airport around 6500-7000 HUF.

We were there as teachers with a large group of students. The rooms assigned were very different from really spacious ones to so small that there was no place for luggage. My room had all sorts of noises coming from the lights and the mini bar which made it difficult to sleep while my colleagues had flickering lights. There was only one friendly and helpful girl at reception whereas the man there was rude and very unhelpful.

A great hotel, we arrived in Budapest early, so they allowed us to leave the suitcase in the hotel until it will be check-in time. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The service in the hotel was great and everyone was helpful with where exactly is everything. The best part is that it was near the college I planned to go. The metro station is near and buses. So its pretty comfortable to get around. The buffet was good.

Nice place and service, near metro but out of historical center of city. Trolleybus stop. Near park. Two bars and shops in minutes. Real 3*. Lift-elevator. Handy phone service. Buy all-day tickets for group ;)

Very nice hotel! It’s near to the meter’s stop and not far to the heroes’s square! It’s fews meters far to Városliget’s Park and Széchenyi Bach. Confortable room and reach breakfast . kindly and friendly staff!

Room was quite big and clean. Bed was really comfy. Breakfast buffet is the same everyday but you have enough options if you are staying for just a couple of days. It was tasty. Neighborhood is quite and safe. We had a termostat in the room which worked so didn't experience problem with that like mentioned in some reviews. If you are coming by car, zones are all around the place so make sure that you make yourself familiar with the parking system.
