The Three Corners Hotel Bristol
Ranked #83 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 October 2011

This hotel is very close to the train station, so don't bother trying to hire a cab to get there from the station (they refuse). The physical facilities are outstanding: contemporary design, comfortable, nice bathrooms. Service was usually OK, but there were some rather gruff front desk staff who seemed to have time-warped here from the socialist era. Breakfast was excellent. The only reason I don't give top rating here is that the location is both inconvenient and a little dicey. I was occasionally uncomfortable walking to the hotel from the subway (skinheads). The prosperity of the local commercial enterprises is somewhat lacking (i.e., lots and lots of empty storefronts) and what does seem to be prospering is the sex trade (I was twice propositioned by women I can only presume to have been professionals within 1 block of the apartment). That said, I do recommend this hotel: good value, very nice rooms, just know what you're getting into.

Arrived on time to find a very large group cheking in and to be told the room we had booked through e-bookers was not available! The resident had broken his leg and needed to stay there. The hotel had booked us into another hotel and got (and paid) for a taxi to get us there. Wonder how the man is?

Room very comfortable but a bit noisy on occasion with windows open. Friendly and helpful staff anxious to help weary travelers. Reasonable walk to public transportation.

I chose this hotel based on its vicinity to various points of interest. I wanted to be able to walk around. That I did. The train station is really close by. I came here by train from Slovakia. The train station outside was under construction. I walked down to the hotel with one rolling bag. The reception was extremely friendly and spoke English. They offered me a room of my choice. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable beds. It offered toiletries in the bathroom. No tub but a great shower. The view was into a pretty woman's apartment, way too close to comfort. From here I was able to walk to both ends of the city. There are several grocery stores nearby. Some all night stores for snacks and sodas. It is easy to catch an underground train to any part of the city. Walk either direction and there is an underground train station. The nightlife is excellent here, the people were so warm and friendly despite my diverse ethnicity. The breakfast was excellent. Pork and cheese is plentiful in Europe. When I asked for an alternate meat at the hotel the manager in the restaurant always brought me chicken from the kitchen. As soon as I walked in he would automatically bring me some chicken cold cuts. I have beautiful memories of this hotel and Budapest. The reception will help you with the maps and help you get anywhere on a budget.

Room Tip: Ask for the room of your choice at the reception

The Bristol is a very clean and comfortable hotel, slightly off the main attractions of Budapest, but this is not that important as possibly the best public transport system in the world is only a few steps away.

Everything is new and sparkling and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are good with plenty of choice although the hot selection could definitely be hotter and the juices could be less artificial. Breads are fresh though and the coffee is good.

Rooms are reasonable sized and I found the beds very comfortable. Air-con a bit sluggish in cooling the room after hot days out. Not much choice of channels on the TV and BBC World had a poor picture quality. Self-tuning seemed to be impossible. Mini-bar as usual ridiculously over-priced, but good for cooling your own drinks.

All in all I think we got a good deal at £50 for two B&B per night. Loads of better hotels in Budapest in better locations, but not at that price, I'd imagine.

I stayed at the Hotel Bristol with my husband for 5 nights in March 2011. The hotel opened fairly recently; our room was clean, quiet and comfortable and we were provided with a kettle and tea making facilities free of charge which was a real plus point. There was also a minibar which was (unusually for a hotel) very reasonably priced. The breakfast is complimentary with plenty of options from yoghurt and fruit to hot food.

Hotel Bristol is trying to do everything right, but it felt a bit too new and that it wasn't yet comfortable in its own skin. I would also rate it as a three rather than a four star as there isn't a room service facility, a restaurant or a bar (you can have a drink sitting in reception, but it's not really a bar).

The hotel is located off Rakoczi utca, a really long road leading from the train station down to the Danube. It's about a mile walk and not very inspiring, but if you cut through the side streets, the architecture and atmosphere are much nicer. There are two metro stations, each around 5 mins walk from the hotel. Blaha Lujza Ter is preferable as it is also served by trams which take you to the Oktagon, a really nice area for eating and drinking.

Whatever you do, be vigilant of your transport tickets. The train, tram, bus and metro system doesn't seem to be fully integrated and we couldn't find clear instructions of how it all worked. This might be deliberate as it seems that there are controllers about to catch tourists out at every turn. We even saw some poor souls get stung for 6000 HUF each just one stop from the airport on the way home! A dedicated day card or tourist card seems to be the safest option although I don't think this covers the trip to the airport.

The Bristol is fine for a couple of nights, but it didn't really have the facilities for a 5 night stay. If I were visiting Budapest again I would be more inclined to stay closer to the centre in a hotel that was a bit more established.
