“Great trip to Budapest!!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We have been looking for an economy hotel in Budapest, cause the prices for accommodation are quite high there, especially according to the current rate of euro. We chose City Hotel Ring 3* and didn’t regret! The staff was wonderful, really professional and helpful, always ready to help and solve all problems. We were greeted with a smile, settled quickly, explained where all the services in the hotel are, and were provided all the necessary information about the breakfast, tours, additional services, etc. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the room (a room was on the 1st floor, but actually it was the third floor). Our room was overlooking the courtyard, so it was very quiet. The plumbing was a little bit old, but everything works correctly. Room was cleaned and towels were changed every day. The breakfasts were the same every day but very delicious: scrambled eggs, several kinds of sausages, several kinds of cheese, vegetables, bread, toast, cereal, milk, jams, butter / margarine, tea, coffee, cappuccino, juices. If you need an iron and a hairdryer you can ask them at reception. The most important thing for us was good hotel's location. This is a huge PLUS of City Hotel Ring 3 *!! It takes you 5-7 minutes to reach the Danube (Margaret Bridge) and 10-15 min. to reach the Parliament. The Underground Station (Nyugati palyaudvar), the second largest shopping center as well as many public transport stations are next to the hotel (3-5 minutes’ walk). We bought Tourist card for 72 hours (Tourist Card - not to be confused with the Budapest Card, because the last one is twice as expensive and covers not only transport, but also some excursions, and also provides discounts). This card allows you to use all public transport in Budapest and even some water transport lines. You only should to show it to the inspector. There were also many restaurants, cafes, bakeries, supermarket SPAR, pharmacies and exchangers with a good rate near the hotel.
We would like to express our thanks to the hotel staff for their hospitality! It is evident that the staff takes pride in their hotel and appreciates every guest! I recommend the hotel to everyone!

We spend two night at the City Ring Hotel, the room was large and clean. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. It is well located, not at the city centre, but nearby most of the attractions in a short walk away. One of Budapest's largest shopping centres is just down the road.
The breakfast is good and is served in a lovely pub at the hotel first floor.
Hotel City Ring is very good value for money.

I spent 4 nights here last week as I was visiting my daughter.I arrived at 1 30 in the morning which was no problem at all.I was in Room 123 which was very clean and cosy.There is a fridge which was brilliant for storing drinks and snacks.The location is fantastic with train station a few minutes walk away and trams nearby.You can take the trams 4 or 6 at McDonalds to go across to Buda. You can also walk across Margit Bridge ,turn right and you will find Margit Island, a haven of peace where people walk,jog, cycle or simply sit watching the traffic on the Danube.Across the bridge in Buda is a restaurant called La Trofea where you can eat and drink all you want for about 13 euros.The House of Parliament is a short walkfrom the hotel as well. The city of Pest is about 25 mins walk or you can take the Metro.What struck me about the hotel was the kindness and friendliness of the staff at reception. They were also very helpful with directions etc. Do not expect a fancy hotel.However I would stay there again no hesitation as what it lacks in plushness is made up for in warmth, cosiness and a homely feel.

Room Tip: Ask for non smoking room at back as trams can be heard at the front.This may not bother you however.

Our family just spent a week at the City Ring Hotel. We had room 111, which can accommodate 4 people. The room was large and spotlessly clean, and the staff kept it that way despite the best endeavours of a 3 year old and a 2 year old.
The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. They provided good recommendations for restaurants (but you must try Zeller) and they also heated milk for us in the evening.
The hotel is well situated for transport and attractions. Be aware that you can hear the trams in rooms that are facing the road, however this did not disturb our sleep.

Our inlays had room 116 down the corridor. That room was smaller, and the trams could not be heard there.

The hotel is really very good value.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side are quieter. There is no elevator.

My wife and I spent four nights at this hotel in March for our wedding anniversary. The hotel is very conveniently placed for the Metro, and for Trams and buses, and for the attractions of Margaret Island. There is also a river bus stop very near as well. The Parliament building and the Danube waterfront are a short walk away, and public transport links to the Buda side as well as into central Pest are excellent.

The hotel itself was basic, which for the price we paid was to be expected, but the bed was comfy, the bathroom clean, and the room came with a fridge, which was a bonus. Despite being on the main ring road, the room we had was quiet, warm, and comfy. I'll admit that we mainly use any hotel simply as somewhere to store our stuff while we explore, and to sleep in, and so for us this hotel was more than adequate. There are a good number of shops and supermarkets nearby (one of Budapest's largest shopping centres is just down the road).

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Gabor who welcomed us on our arrival. They were polite, smiley, and spoke excellent English, and even managed not to laugh at my awful Magyar! The young lady running the bar was also very helpful. The bar, attached to the side of the hotel, is cosy, with a good selection of reasonably priced drinks. My wife and I tend to avoid hotel bars, but we made an exception with this one, as it was so nice. Service was great too; this is so far the only hotel I've ever stayed in that actually had a hairdryer that my wife could borrow (others tend to tell us that "another guest already has it...") and on our last day they allowed us to leave our bags there from checkout until mid afternoon, which saved us having to carry them around all day.

There are a lot posher, more luxurious places to stay in Budapest, but if all you want is a basic, no fuss no nonsense place to sleep, in a convenient location, the Hotel City Ring is very good value for money.

We stayed here for 4 nights on a long weekend visit. It's very central & there are lots of supermarkets & eateries in walking distance, as well as being close to main attractions such as Parliament. The room was clean & comfortable with a fridge, tv & wifi. It was basic, but you only really sleep there, so it doesn't need to be more. Staff were friendly & helpful, I would recommend.
