Carlton Hotel Budapest
Ranked #82 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed 7 December 2013

We had an excellent stay here - good value for money - an excellent location and very friendly staff - could not complain about anything. The staff bent over backwards for my special dietary needs - and the rooms were clean a& comfortable and provided everything a guest could possibly need - well thought through - could not fault this hotel at all

Once we arrived @ the hotel we were welcomed by a friendly staff and we noticed the position is remarkably good, right near Buda’s embarquement.
The impression of the room is that this is not really a 4 stars hotel, rather a 3.
Though, the position, as I mentioned, is worthy.
The hotel is quiet. You can relax.
We chose a transfer service to the airport for our return trip, it was priced 8500 HUF

Very nice hotel located on the Buda side, you would not think that it's so nice when approaching. The center is within walking distance, and it is easy to use public transport if you like.
Recommendable

The location is amazing. It's located directly at the beautiful Chain Bridge and just below the Buda Castle.
The rooms are clean and spacious, but a little bit outdated.
The breakfast is good, but lacks variation.
The staff is very friendly.

I was starting to regret booking this hotel, having read other recent reviews. I travelled with my elderly parents and reviews regarding it's location I was nervous. Although on arrival we did have to make our way up the steps to get to the Hotel with our luggage, we asked at reception and there is actually a lift that brings you down from reception to the garage. Reception then open the door for you and you are almost on the street level. When coming back in we just had to ring the bell and reception would open the door again.

This hotel is in an amazing position. It is a three minute walk to Chain Bridge and about the same to the funnicular railway which brings you up to the Castle Dristrict. It is also only about a three minute walk to an area where you can pick up any of the Hop-on/Hop off buses.

The rooms are a little basic and small but are very clean. The style of the room is visible on the web site so it wasn't a surprise.

Breakfast is a little limited but it is sufficient to set you up for the day.

One hint if you like tea bring your own tea bags, they have every kind of fruit tea you could wish for, but no ordinary Tea.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the rear of the hotel as they are quieter.

The highest point of the hotel is its location, about 100m from the Danubio river and the most famous bridge of the city - Bridge of Chains -.
Its lowest score goes also to to the location, placed in the middle of a streeet with a serious slope, so the options are to climb a high staircase (in the lower street) or to slip down about 40m of a cobbled street when arriving trough the upper side, and both are rather inconvenient when you are carrying a suitcase.
The staff is very helpful and fluent in English and they can help you with information and touristic servicies.
It has acceptable wi-fi connection (free) in all the facilities and the breakfast is ok though not so varied as could be expected.

Room Tip: A tip to avoid the staircases/cobbled slope when arriving with heavy suitcases: in the lower street...

The location of the hotel is fine. Not exactly in the city center, but close to the river and one of the bridges.
The entrance is not easily accesible by car or other type of transportation (especially in bad weather conditions) and the space in front of the hotel is very small.
The rooms are ok, but not for 4*Category as well as the services.
Irons and Ironing Boards not allowed in the rooms. If you want then you have to go on the underground level where the HouseKeeping Department is.
The breakfast buffet is good, but there is lack of service. In the morning when is the rush hour you need to wait for a table to be cleaned and set up.
