Reviewed 25 March 2014

Stayed in this hotel 13 -18 March. Near many cafes and restaurants, very close many of the city. Clean hotel, friendly receptionists at the front desk.Cleaning at the hotel was every day, towels changed every den.Idealny hotel for traveling near two metro stations, providing access to various points of interest.The rooms are large and bright. Chose this hotel because of the large windows in the room. Book through administrator airport shuttle service, tarnsport was booked time.Will certainly recommend your hotel. Thank you for comfort.

I stayed there for 4 nights with my hubby, we loved the place! Quiet enough, clean rooms and super nice staff! The bed was a little too hard for us. Pilvax köz is not for cars(?) so we slept well! In my opinion the breakfast was awesome, worth of trying, but just a little top expensive.

Stayed for 4 nights, Wed 19th - Sat 22nd Feb. Hotel easy to find from nearby Metro station and good location to explore beautiful Budapest on foot. Our room on 1st floor, above reception, was of a reasonable size and layout, but the old metal frame windows were draughty and the curtains did not cover them. The corner shower cubicle was small and one of the sliding doors came off the runners every time - it had been repaired previously, but needs replacing! The buffet breakfast was minimal and of poor quality, the amount supplied reducing each morning and not being replenished, irrespective of what time it was? Milk spilled on the floor was not even mopped up by the grumpy waitress? The meal we ate there one evening was of a completely different standard - very tasty, but only a small portion and much more expensive than other meals elsewhere? Our last 2 nights' sleep were disturbed by the noise of other guests returning late in the early hours, even though we had opted for a room which was not above the Irish bar. I think Avios should review using this hotel, we will not again.

Dear ‘Ann572014’,

Thank you very much for your feedback about your stay at City Hotel Pilvax.

Glad to hear that you liked the location of the hotel as well as the size of the rooms. We regret that you found the shower door damaged. We kindly ask your guests to inform the front desk when any damage is detected and the maintenance department will fix it as soon as possible or another room will be provided. Some repairs – like replacing the shower doors – can permanently be managed only upon out-of-ordered rooms that we continuously perform.

Your opinion concerning the buffet breakfast has been forwarded to the Pilvax Bisztro’s management, every feedback will help us to improve our services.

In regards with the guest behaviour we’d like to underline that keeping the house rules is mandatory for everyone, if someone do not respect other guests’ rest, the hotel staff immediately take the necessary measures.

Thank you for choosing our hotel and sincerely hope to have the chance to welcome you here again.

Best regards,
Zsuzsanna K. Csapone
Hotel Director

We have just returned from four nights at Pilvax Hotel. The room was basic but clean. It was cleaned daily and the towels were changed daily. The only negative thing was the noise. Other guests could be heard at all times of night. Sometimes it felt they were in the same room! I feel that when someone is singing loudly at 5am the reception staff should have told them to be quiet. The location was fantastic. Breakfast at Anna's was superb. Try and walk slightly away from the centre for cheaper food and drinks. Budapest was a wonderful city with lots to see and do. One final point if you do visit Budapest take your swimming costume and visit Gellert Baths.

I've just spent 4 nights in this super hotel. It's in an excellent location, so close to everywhere you'd want to visit. The reception staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful, with a relaxed, informal manner and a great command of English. Our room was large and well equipped, the shower clean and modern and you can get a hairdryer free of charge from reception. I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: You might need a pin or a bit of blu-tak as our curtains didn't quite close properly!

Great location. Walking distance to any sightseeing. Vaci just 2 minutes walk. Nice rooms, but old shower. No sound isolation inside and outside. Very friendly staff. No elevator. Very expensive restaurant. But next door Irish pub was excellent. The hotel is old , but very clean. Hairdryer on reception.

Dear Guest ‘Anna I’,

We would like to thank you for your recent visit at City Hotel Pilvax and your feedback about our hotel. We are happy that you liked the staff, location and room facilities. The cleanliness got the second highest score on the rating summary thanks to the housekeeping department’s efforts which makes us very proud.
