+ Friendly staff and nice bed. Thai massage was very good! Ok prices. - BUT it was to hot in the rooms, dinner took foooorever to get (and was not that good) and the bubblebath in the spa dident work.
A bit far from the city centre, but it depends why are you in Budapest for. Very affordable, a great spa, very good massage, friendly staff at the spa, nice swimming pools, great for kids as well. The garage elevator needs a bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it is kind of cool. The only unpleasant part during my several stays here was that once, when I did not have the breakfast included, the waiter kept staying next to me until I have literally signed for every little thing. We go inside the restaurant, sit down with our daughter, she comes and has us sign on the room before even getting comfortable. Then we ask for coffees, same thing, maybe they thought we were gonna skip town or something. Anyways. The furniture is a bit old, pretty much the same stuff I remember from many years ago.
I stayed on night here and during my entire stay I have never felt like in a 5* hotel. Long waiting time at the check in, old room with uncomfortable bed. Breakfast was poor with regard to options, quality and service. The entire breakfast room looked unorganised and not enjoyable. Great when housekeeping is starting to knock on doors at 8am. They did not knock my door (do not disturb) but started to have loud conversations on the floor. Thus the night was shorter than i had desired... Can not recommend that place. There are a lot better places, offering much more quality at even better pricing
It's dreadful..........run down, out of the centre. The staff are lovely, but, it simply needs a large investment to make it a reasonable hotel. The only good thing about it is that there is a great kebab stand at the train station.
This hotel is absolutely excellent, my boyfriend and I loved our stay from start to finish. Our room had everything you could possibly need in it, including a massage chair! The bed had to be the most comfortable one i've ever slept in. The room comes with comlete use of the spa which is just amazing after a day of sightseeing. All the staff were so friendly and very welcoming and certainly added to the stay. The hotel is situated roughly 3 miles out of the centre of budapest. We travelled to the centre via taxi which cost between 2500-6000 forints depending on the time of day. Would certainly recommend this hotel!
I traveled a view time to budapest due to work. This hotel is always booked. It is perfect to stay here. Allthough an update of the bathroom and room could be wise. Free wifi was not successfull. Breakfast is great, good choice of food.
We used to stay here about 4 years ago. A few things have changed. The first thing we noticed is how derty and stained the carpets in public areas, corridors, etc have become. Which is a shame as you consistently see people dusting and polishing. The rooms are conformable, and a reasonable size. They are slightly dated, complete with an electric trouser press. The bathroom is OK, but not special in any why. Very much like a normal domestic bathroom, complete with a over the bath shower. The consumables are reasonable. We took the free transfer into Budapest. We were only offered one stop. Last time we used it they were more. Wifi was about 2.5 Mbps. I could not connect to Amazon Prime vidio. Was it blocked? A reasonable selectionof pay to view movies were available. Some were quite old, yet they were all one price, from the oldest to the newest. 3 good reasons to stay here are the staff, the pools/spa, and the food. All of the staff are professional, smart, helpful, and spoke good English. The swimming pool downstairs is of a size you can actual swim up and down in it. It's open very early, and closes very late.They are 2 thermal pools . A large selection of reasonable priced spa treatment are available. We like the different restaurants the hotel has. Good selection of local and international dishes available. One point of note is that some times prices are given in Forint, some times in Euros. When I booked the prices were in Forint. I recieved an email confirming the booking in Euros.When I came to pay the price was again in Forints. Perhaps some one from the hotel can confirm when prices are changed from Euros to Forints or the other why, the same exchange rate is always used. We are returning in about 4 months and will stay here again.
It seems like the standards in budapest are not aligned with the rest of europe. We stayed in this hotel for a conference, we were organizing. It took al lot of effort to explain and keep explaining that meeting rooms need to be prepared before the sessions begin. The hotel itself is somewhat outdated. The interior of the rooms could be better, especially the bathroom. Lots of people complained about the humming noise from the ventilation system. The hotel restaurant is quite Ok, but do not expect anything special.
Well, I have felt in this hotel as I did while during a trip in Egypt. The 5* of the hotel, probably would worth 5 somewhere far away from Europe. Guys, it is very cold in the rooms, bathroom heating was absent and they charge 5 EUR an espresso at breakfast time...
When I arrived at The Aquincum Hotel I went to the check-in, where I was welcomed by a man employee, whose name I couldn't remember, unfortunately. After I filled in the form for the checking in he asked me to give 100 euro for the deposit for the mini bar (?!) in case if I consume something during my stay. We tried to make the transaction via my credit card, for which he wanted me to provide a pin... I have never used a pin with my credit card, which made it impossible for me to pay using this payment method. I had to give almost all of my euro cash that I had just because I have been asked to pay in advance for the minibar, for the whole period that I am staying at the hotel. However, during this whole thing was happening, a small queue with approx. 4 people, has appeared. I asked the gentleman if I could change the payment method and give him cash, then he nervously asked if I could wait aside for 5 min, while he takes care of the rest of the people on the queue and then we could continue with the checking in. At this point, I couldn't believe that I have been asked to move aside, even though I already had the money in my hands, so I told the man that I also have things to do and I am actually in a hurry as well. To that he responded with, "EXCUSE ME MADAM, BUT THOSE GUESTS ARE BUSINESSMEN!". Well, thank you! How does this make them a priority?! In fact, I was also on a business trip, with the only difference that I am a 24 years old, woman, not dressed in a suit and tie. Why didn't he called someone else to take care of the checking out of the businessmen and CHECK ME IN, the actual and potential future guest of the hotel?? Apart from this experience the hotel is fine, the breakfast was tasty and various, the executive club rooms are also nice. The humiliation at the reception has costed you the minus rating that I am giving you.
