“Good choice”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

we stayed for 3 nights and we have nothing to complain about. the receptionist was very nice and helpful, the room a little small but very clean, with new furniture and a good sized bath. the room was cleaned daily and the towels were changed daily.
quit close to the city center even on foot, very close to the metro station.
nice neighborhood and very quite.
we didn't serve breakfast at the hotel.
good wi-fi in the room.
we parked the car in the underground parking, where you must be a good driver to fit the car into the hotel designed parking place because is quite narrow.
I would recommend the hotel and would go there again.

Not too distant from the touristic centre of Budapest, Central 21 offers excellent value for the very reasonable amount of money paid. The rooms are a little bit on the small side, breakfast is so-so, but I would still recommend it for a short stay, especially on a budget.

during our stay we met 3 different guys, which all of them are very nice. especially the first guy when we check in (i forgot to ask his name), he provide all the information we need regarding the hotel, the city, and the transport. when we enter the room, they decorate the towels into "2 kissing goose" which it's very lovely. the room itself was very clean, has 40inch LCD tv, telephone unit and refrigerator. the shower and toilet are in the same room and it is clean too. the room is maybe small, but it was enough for us. the hotel provide free tea/coffee at the lobby, computer access at the lobby, and free wifi in the room. the hotel are very close to grocery shop and underground & tram station, perfect for city trip. the aisle is too dark, which the only thing we don't like. overall, i would stay there again on my next visit to budapest. keep up the good work guys!

very, very small room. Rooms are very clean, nice, everything is new. Staff is nice and helpfull. It is good place to stay for a night or two. Near to interesting places. Very nice place for this value. Bad breakfast. Hotel 21 doesnt have private parking, you must find free place on the street. Reccomend!!

Dear pikim t!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Central Hotel 21 *** Budapest.

We know the problem about the parking and we are really sorry about it.

From the beginning of April 2014 we have parking places in an underground parking house near to the hotel.

I stayed at Central Hotel 21 for 4 days and was very satisfied. This hotel is centrally located, and very convenient to reach via public transportation. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and modernly decorated. All the hotel staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. The only, very minor, complaint was that the wifi signal in our room wasn't as strong as it was in other areas of the hotel. For travelers looking for both comfort and value, I highly recommend staying here.

unless you're a heavy sleeper. As one or two other reviewers have commented the rooms on this floor are rather odd - they lead directly onto the breakfast room. So in addition to the disturbance of every taxi pulling up, late night revellers, early morning refuse collections (my personal favourite at 0600 - complete with flashing lights) - I had also to contend with the noise of tables being prepared for early morning breakfasters. The more positive or untested features of the hotel (which I think justify an average rating) were to my mind - clean modern rooms (although personally I found the bed to be a little on the low side) and a very comfortable bathroom with heated flooring; friendly and welcoming staff; breakfast not taken (I was trying hard to get some sleep); good central location on an in other respects fairly quiet street. Finally, just a heads up that the rooms do not have AC (I assume all are the same) which could be a big issue in the height of summer - especially if you're staying on the ground floor and have to resort to opening the window (and it really is street level)! I was also a little uneasy that there was no 'phone in the room but maybe that's just me.

Room Tip: 'nuff said!
