“Pretty standard”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Hotel is located 3 minutes from the bus stop that connects you with the airport and that is the biggest advantage of this place. Rooms are very basic but neat. If you stay in Budapest for few days I'd recommend to find something in the center - there are plenty of small hotels/rooms in the center in the same price range.

Room Tip: Don't take doubles on the 5th floor with shared bathroom - aircondition in in the corridor, so w...

Hotel Chesscom is perfect. It takes only 15 minutes by bus to reach it from the airport by bus 200E. Also it is 1 minute walk away from one of the M3 Blue Line Metro Station KOBANYA-KISPEST which is only 15minutes away from the Main City Centre Metros and also the station is a built as a big shopping centre. Very good value for money and affordable price which is a must if you are a solo traveller or a budget tourist I recommend no other place in Budapest than HOTEL CHESSCOM. Furthermore the Hotel Staff are really friendly and helpful and everyday where suggesting me different day trips outside the city. Thanks Hotel Chesscom next time I am in Budapest you will see me. :)

I chose to stay at this hotel as I was on a budget, and having checked out the reviews on Tripadvisor, and it certainly didn't disappoint. It's not much to look at from the outside, but once you're in, it certainly seems to be more of a 3* than 2*. The receptionist was friendly and very efficient, and the room itself was ideal for my needs.

I had a single room, and while it wasn't the biggest, I only needed it for somewhere to get my head down at night. The bed was a standard double, and the mattress firm, but that's how I like it. My only complaint was that the pillow was too soft for my taste, but that's personal preference. There is a safe in the room to store valuables in, a small LCD TV above the bed, and a fridge to store drinks etc. in (although nothing was provided by the hotel).

The bathroom was spotless, and the shower very good, nice and powerful. Free wifi is provided by the hotel, but the signal was very weak, even though I was only on the first floor - I could still connect though, so not really an issue for me. Breakfast is provided in the room rate, and consists of a choice of cold cuts (meats, cheeses, etc.), some hot items (bacon, eggs, and sausages), and a choice of tea/coffee or fruit juice. Basic, but very nice - hit the spot in the morning.

Location-wise, it is relatively near the airport, and I can highly recommend the hotel's own airport transfer service - at €5 each way, dropping you off right on the doorstep, it's an absolute bargain. The metro is also very nearby, only a 5 minute walk through the nearby shopping mall, and it is about 15 minutes on that into the city centre.

Overall, definitely recommended for anyone visiting Budapest, especially if on a budget. I would stay there again, no question.

Room Tip: Use the hotel's own airport transfer service, arranged on their website - absolute bargain!

I chose the hotel based on the location and price, and it turned out to be worth every penny. The metro station and the shopping mall are just next door, as was the bus for the airport.
Looked a bit old from the outside but rooms were nice and clean. Fridge and safe were good to have and even the wifi worked well! Good breakfast as well.
