I stayed here one night, but I have to say that this is not a three star hotel. The building is very old, it rather looks like an old student hotel, not like a three star hotel. The room was as clean as it could be, but looked also depressing. It was really hot, so it was hard to sleep. The air conditioning was not working. Or to tell you the truth, it heated the air, and it was noise as well, so we decided rather to switch it off :) The location is also not good, it is far from everywhere, there is not even a restaurant around it. It is close to a metro station, so if you would like to use the public transport, you can get to the city center without changing the metro line. It was easy to find a parking place next to hotel. In the morning we had to left before 7, so we did not have breakfast - as I reading the other comments, I think we did not loose anything.
For this kind of room, service, and environment, I think the price is a little bit expensive. I am not recommending this hotel. Only if you are looking for maximum a night stay around this neighborhood, but you can find much more hotels in Budapest.

I don’t really like give very negative reports because there is a place for every budget, but the Platanus has seen better days. The hotel is set up for short cheap stays, during my visit there was at least 5 coach parties of teenage school children, as you can imagine it was a bit noisy during the night. Consequently because of the type of cliental the room furniture is very basic. There is a small café in the reception area but no bar as such, the restaurant which doubles as the breakfast room does not open in the evening and there is nothing immediately around the hotel for food so that was a problem. As for breakfast, it was so full on two of the days with the school kids I couldn’t get close to a table and most tables were piled up with the remains of the previous person’s breakfast hence not so pleasant so I gave up. All the staff were very pleasant and the price was very good but as the saying goes ‘you only get what you pay for’ so don’t expect luxury and you won’t be disappointed. It was a little way out of Budapest city centre so not very convenient for tourists. As for being a 3 star establishment as all the literature says, I would class it as 2 stars at the most and struggling a little with this classification!

This hotel is quite comfortable, with a lot of services, but everything was nothing more than acceptable, expect for the location, that is about 30 minutes far from the centre of the city, and for the staff, that is very nice and kind. 6/10.

The hotel is little under the average rate of a hotel. The positive thing is that it is very close to the blue metro line - Nepliget station. But I selected "average" for location as the district looks like a ghetto - no shops or anything nearby! The breakfast was good, the sheets on the beds were clean, but there were no shampoo and hairdryer in the bathroom. As a whole, the hotel is good for 2-3 nights and if you plan to be outside and visit the sightseeing in the city.

Room Tip: I was in a room with a view to the street which is very noisy all night long and could not open the...
