I was pushed into this place because the hotels in the other town and the first two hotel options in Debrecen were fully booked. Hotel is a Classic - would be great to see this place in it's glory. Location is absolutely perfect. Hotel is totally worn out, place is not so clean any tidy. All places are in scruffy...

The Wifi on the 4th floor (where our room was located) did not work. Every now and then there was some very weak signal and it disappeared. I asked help from the reception but no can do. Hence, you could see people using their computers in the downstairs main lobby. You can forget the idea of working in your room....

This hotel is in the best possible location. View from the windows was fantastic, air conditioning was in our room and the room was generally tidy and nice. The hotel looks beautiful from outside but the inside comes across very old, unmaintained and a little dirty as well. They should definitely renovate it. But all together it was a very...

Nice location, beautiful view, sadly very poor service and uncomfortable bed! No air conditioning! The staff and the management was really helpful though. The hotel needs some serious renovation. Overall don't think the hotel hit the 3 star requirements.

This was a true Grand Hotel 75 years ago. It still has the grandeur of great paintings, a superbly beautiful dining room, but the rooms are frankly terrible. It was 40 degrees heat and no air conditioning. They have a fine buffet lunch for about $6. The staff are friendly, but the place lacks a lot overall.

As we are fond of achitecture, we had to stay at this hotel. It still has a lot of its charm of the past when entering the hotel and in the breakfast room. 'Grand' is definitely the right word here. The room had nothing of the old style suggested on the pictures of the entrance and they were decorated in...

We where a group and booked three rooms. To be honest I was luck because mine was usable, but definitely not a 3 star hotel! When we requested different rooms, they said that the hotel was fully booked but honestly I couldn't see to many persons entering the hotel, so they could not change them. Just look at the pictures!

It is true what people say: this place is quite old and sure has seen better times. The rooms are dated but clean and the beds are good. Main hall and breakfast room are beautiful. Still in the original style. Price a little too high for value. Location is perfect.

The reviews of this place seem unfair and unbalanced. The price is fair taking into account what they give you. We had a splendid superior room that was both cosy and has a great view to the plaza. We enjoyed our stay and would come again! I would recommend the place to others. STAFF: Very mixed experience. The staff are...

This hotel has a nice central location, old style but a 2-3 stars level of room facility, restaurant service. Complained for malfunctions in the room, that was not prepared during our stay. Young staff with less experience and skill. Modest service level in the restaurant. Pets are welcomed. Car parking for extra fee.
