ACHAT Premium Budapest
Ranked #153 of 336 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Firstly I am basing this review on one night mid week, paid €45, + €10 for breakfast. The hotels' revolving doors open DIRECTLY onto a cycle lane, you must take great care when going in and out. The desk staff are super nice and really helpful, but there just aren't enough of them, had to wait an unacceptable amount of time to check in and out. The room; smallest single bed I have ever seen, pillows that were very old, hairdryer didn't work and the shower head holder was broken, other than that it was an OK room. buffet breakfast was excellent, but continually running out, and had to wait, again an unacceptable amount of time to get even basics like bread! With just 20% more effort this could be a really great hotel.

Room Tip: rooms ending in low 20's are near a noisy main road

The hotel is nice and comfortable. The service is very good and the rooms are very clean. The hotel is away from the center but the tram stop outside the hotel. Price stay in the hotel is cheap for a luxury you get in return.

Let's be upfront and honest....I made the reservation knowing that the hotel has a very mixed reputation. I went for it because it is a short distance from the University for Public Service, and because it is cheap! (Although a bit a la carte - Early check-in? Late checkout? 15 euros.)

So, trying to respect Grandma's advice, updated to 2014:
The front desk shift at arrival was very nice. Every staff member after that - desk, bar, restaurant, housekeeping - rude and condescending.

The room was as requested, and more than adequate. Sadly, the bedding smelled of hair oils and body odor. When requested new linen - rude and condescending.

Thank goodness for the "high speed Wifi". Although I seemed to fail to find a place where it was high speed. In fact, it barely connected. Except in the public toilet near reception desk. My tablet went crazy in my bag as I stood doing my business.

Not in mood to go into town for dinner so I went to the restaurant. Closed. Why? Three busloads of visitors. (None in sight.) I reminded I am a visitor - But your company did not say you wish dinner, the tour operators did for these others. No dinner there. Staff - rude and condescending.

Returned to room and called room service - No room service today, we have three busloads of visitors. Hmmmm. Returned from outstanding dinner at Ysipro Cafe (2 tram stops away) and thought to have a glass of wine - house red (a Hungarian red, normally very good). No house wines today but for 4 times more money this is the red we have available. It must be good - the three busloads of visitors are drinking it. I went away.

Room overlooked the busy street. Starting at about 2200, there must have been accidents everywhere in Budapest because ambulances with sirens screaming went by every 15 or 20 minutes all night long.

Breakfast - a buffet. It was excellent. Seriously. And I was earlier than the bus tourists, so plenty to choose from.

What a lovely bike trail there is in that part of Budapest - in fact it easily accessible from the hotel front door! About 30 centimeters! Be quick as you exit the hotel or you will get run over!
Second day luch time. No bus passengers. In the mood for four cheese quesadillas. Call room service...........No room service. Too tired from working the three busloads last night. Restaurant closed but will open for dinner.

Thankfully - it was time to check-out.

Final note: Always Always insist taxi drivers in Budapest use the meter. Any fixed price quote will be 3 to 4 times higher than meter. (Learned that back in 2011.)

Room Tip: Ask for room not on front of building. It was noisy all night long!

The front desk service really stood out here on our visit. They were very helpful with booking our airport shuttle, helping us understand the public transit and assisting us with booking our river tour. The location is a little bit out of the way from the main sights, but there is a tram station right out in front that connects easily to the stadium metro stop, which then interconnects to everything else you need. The room was very nice and clean, but the free wi-fi was very in and out from our room on the 4th floor. Lastly, the 10 euro breakfast wasn't bad, but not great either.

The hotel is nice and comfortable. Good quality price. Far from city centre is not a good location if staying without car. They do a pre authorization on your credit card and the do it instantly, but when checking if there is nothing to pay, cancelation of pre authorization comes with a phone call to the hotel bank which is not instantly as in check in procedure...

We stayed here for a week-end. Hotel is new and modern. The room is very clean, spacious, bed is comfortable, bathroom is spotless.
Breakfast was excellent.
Location not close to city center, but you have good connection by tram and metro.

Poor location, decent room, nice park behind hotel, poor staff that scam you for a "city tax". This is the 3rd hotel I've stayed at in Budapest, and the first to rigidly scam guests for extra city taxes.
