“Good hotel where to stay”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I stayed there for one night.. Its a great deal for that money. Room was spacious, modern and clean. You should visit skybar in a very top floor, there is a perfect view to the city and its not even expensive how I thought so. The only thing what surprised my was location if the hotel, its kind of out of city and you wouldnt probably go out there ať night by your self.

We stayed here in two rooms for 2 nights in May. The price was so good and the reviews so generous that I almost passed it over. To my delight, it lives up to it’s 4 stars.
The gal at the front desk was knowledgeable and efficient. She listened and solved our problems. The place is a tower with 4 short wings coming out from the central shaft. Each wings has only 4 rooms so it was quiet and peaceful. The rooms are clean and roomy enough for comfort. I loved the shower. It was huge! It was even large by American standards.
The Breakfast was great. There were abundant choices, many of which were hot. It was spread out quite a bit so there was no crowding but I would suggest a recon walk through before you grab a plate.
There is good parking at the hotel and it is a short drive or 15 minute walk to the subway into town. There is free parking right at the station so it was very convenient to get in and out of Budapest.
The only down sides are the beds (European Firm) and the tour groups to which the hotel caters. There’s nothing you can do about the beds, but the tour groups can be dodged by asking one of them when they are scheduled for breakfast. We had a couple of bus loads of teens there one of our nights but we did not hear a peep. We planed our breakfast after theirs had no problem at all.
Don’t let the low price throw you off. The reviews are acurate. This is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you walk through and see everything in the breakfast buffet before you start.

Expo congress is clean, tidy, nearly clinical and faceless. Good staff that do their job but do not engage with guests. Reception are friendly and helpful but it stops there.
Breakfast was a small spread but ample food. The same everyday unfortunately.
Rooms are large, modern with good bathroom facilities. Comfy beds and crisp sheets, the house keeping department do a great job.
Small spa facilities are clean and well maintained a nice touch if you have time to use them. The SKY bar never opened which is a little odd for such a large hotel.
The location is a little out of town so you really need a car.

My friend and I went on a little journey around Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia, grabbing accomodation along the way.

We stayed in some great places along the way, and some not top great places also. After staying in apartments and hostels, we decided that for our last 3 nights, we would stay somewhere a little more plush. There was a great late deal on Olotels, where we got a twin room in the Expo Congress for about €40 a night. Seemed a bargain, and it really was.

The staff were welcoming and helpful, particularly at the reception desk and the skybar, which offers a fantastic view of the city. The rooms themselves were clean, the beds were comfortable and the showers were great. The only thing that let the place down was getting to the centre. There's a metro station about 15 mins walk away, and having stayed centrally throughout the trip previously, this was a little inconvenient. But other than that, a nice place to stay if you can get a good price.

The Hotel its self is very good and clean, during our stay we were told the first week that the sky bar would open after the weekend but it never opened ! later told it would open in the spring !!! the sauna and spa closed every day at 10 in the morning opening times were advertised as 07:00 to 22:00 !! On arrival we were given a room with twin beds having asked for a double on the booking after two days of asking they eventuly got sheets big enough and pushed the beds together ! then had to move rooms as it was a second booking the same problem but this time it was never sorted gave up asking ! Breakfast was good but the same every day so after 2 weeks its got a bit much ! A nice hotel the staff very pleasant just that its far from the city center.

When arriving at the hotel we were greeted with enormous hospitality, ideas on planning our trip and getting around.

The location is ten to fifteen minutes walk from the metro and then it's really simple getting around. Don't be put off by the walking it's well worth it! And we felt safe around the area all be it a little quiet.

The hotel is very clean, beds are extremely comfortable and the sky bar and spa at the top of the hotel is gorgeous! With wonderful views.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone and we'd love to come back and visit both the city and the Expo!

Brilliant staff, clean spacious room, & great top floor spa with distant views. 10 minute walk with underground journey to Central Budapest, but excellent value for money. The hotel is located in an expo area of Budapest, so is quiet if no expo events are on.
