“Tiny, compact”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

La Prima Fashion was a new experience, its ”sister” hotel Atrium Fashion was our hotel at our previous Budapest visit. As all hotels, the pictures shown at their own sites, are taken mostly from suites or other larger rooms, and all photos from lobby etc. were made to seen larger than they really were. The bathroom was really tiny, so that some bigger traveller could not get into the shower tube because of its doors. Luckily we are not fat! The window was large, but behind it you could only see a wall of some other building. Ok, there was a balcony with a table and two chairs, but only for smoking, I suppose (this hotel is non smoking), because you could hardly see a piece of heaven. Breakfast was satisfactory. But the beds, they were awful! We had space enough with my husband, but it was impossible to sleep one minute on your side, because it really started aching on my hip bones, even though I do not have got arthrosis - yet - and I don’t have extra fat on my hips … We had ordered this trip by OK-Matkat. When leaving, the guide asked, if I had asked any extra mattress. We arrived in the middle night, so you will not firstly think if you have to ask some softness there. The situation of the hotel is very nice for those who like to travel along the Vaci utca all the time. Our room was in 5th floor, so the traffic did not disturb.

This hotel is so uniquely decorated, comfortable and luxurious for a very reasonable price. Nándor at the front desk is amazingly helpful - he answered millions of questions for us, booked us a medieval dinner and massages, and even stored our luggage for us our final day while we explored. The free breakfast is a great value and the hotel is right by the Christmas markets. I definitely recommend this place.

Very well situated in the Centre of town, close to the Elizabeth bridge. We found it to be an excellent base for our long weekend break. The rooms are large, comfortable and modern. Breakfast was continental in style. The hotel was very quiet with no odd noises in the night. Free wifi is provided. No complaints at all.

We stayed here 7 nights on our first holiday to Budapest. The hotel is situated just off of the main tourist street Vaci Utca which has lots of shops and a general busy feeling to it. It was very easy to walk to most of the main attractions from the hotel and was also close to the metro and tourist bus stops. During our stay we also went on the nearby Legenda cruise boats which are near the hotel too.
As we were staying 7 nights, I requested a larger room with a bath by email prior to the visit. We got this as requested which was great. The rooms are very nicely decorated and the housekeeping is to a very high standard- cleaned and made-up in mornings and then later they come back to turn-down the bed and put a chocolate on the pillow.
Breakfast was served in a continental buffet style with a selection of breads, cheese, meats, fruits, cereal and juice/coffee. I found this to be a good option but the choice stayed the same every day.
The reception area of the hotel has a nice seating area where we sat some evenings before bedtime. The choice of drinks at the bar was limited and I was disappointed that they did not have any white wine at all but managed to find a suitable alternative for our nightcap.
Getting to and from the hotel was easy using the Airport Shuttle service- although we booked this separately as it was cheaper.
Overall, we had a lovely stay and would return to this hotel again on future trips.

Nice little hotel in excellent location. Decent Buffet breakfast but small breakfast area could be difficult to get a table. Staff were all very nice, only disappointments were; young guy on reception one evening could not cope with 8 people wanting a night cap! Also, disappointing that we're sold (at high price), tickets for the wrong bus tour particularly since having asked specifically for the Giraffe red/yellow/blue (boat). Rooms are a mix, ours was small and 2 other couples with us were good size rooms. All in all a very pleasant experience and would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Make sure you get the correct bus tour tickets if booking at reception.

We spent 3 days at La Prima Fashion hotel and its location is perfect for visiting Budapest.
It’s really close to main Pest’s attraction such as Danubio, Chain Bridge, Vaci Ucta shopping street and main Market; you can also walk to the Parliament.
We use hop on hop off tour bus that stops close to the hotel; also Danubio boats tour pier is just 2 min walk from the hotel. Many shops, bar and restaurant are at a walking distance.
Reception staff is really nice and helpful. Breakfast is good with a proper selection of food
Room are clean and comfortable, housekeeping twice a day; just a little remark: rooms’ temperature is really high, even if you switch off the heating system, temperature in the room is too much. We ask for a late checkout and we paid for it a very reasonable price.
A quick tip: if you need to book the airport shuttle do it on line because is cheaper than booking it at hotel reception.
