“Reasonable quality hotel close to the metro”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

This is not where you go because of the ambience. The corridoors and rooms have an institutional feel. Someone suggested that the place was originally built as a lunatic-asylum :) But rooms were clean (one in our party got a smelly one, but they were immediately relocated to a non-smelly one). Location is perhaps not where you would like to take a late-night stroll alone, but is close enough to the metro to be a viable choice if you are looking for a cheap hotel.
Do not expect too much from the lobby-bar, seemed to be closed most of the time.

It's the worst hotel in which I have ever been. 3 stars is so unreallistic. It's a 1 star hotel: smelly rooms, old furniture and carpets, broken plumbing in the bathroom, very poor breakfast. The guy at the reception was polite, it was the only good thing at this lousy hotel. I will never return.

Positives:
- it is very close to the Metro so getting in and out of the city is easy before 11pm
- the staff were friendly and helpful
- the rooms were turned over every day and clean
- there is wifi in the lobby and we were also just about able to get it in the room (room 222)

Improvements:
- breakfast was pretty disappointing - see picture - you are served a plate, there is no choice and it finishes at 9am
- rooms were tired, with old furniture, not at all welcoming or comfortable e.g. The beds were hard, sheets almost see-through and there was no bath

Generally, although the location is great to get into the city the surrounding area does not offer anything in the way of shops or restaurants. The hotel staff were kind, but I would say the hotel is far from 3 star standard.

Old stile Communist era hotel, with clean rooms friendly staff, 200 m from Metro station.
Bus station Nepliget also 300 m.
Easy reachable from the airport
Suitable for visitors of town who are interested to look around and not spend a day in room.
Blue metro can take to the downtown in 10-15 min. Take a day-week tickets.
Breakfast can be better.
Car park available during weekend while during week you will need to have luck.
Average hotel with good value

Room Tip: Try to ask for rooms located on back side of the building due to the heavy traffic from street side

we stayed at platanus for 2 nights during the weekend. the rooms are really extremely basic. nothing is fancy in there, but bare and essential. it is a hostel rather than a hotel but our room was clean and there were no smells, despite the very old carpet! sheets and towels were clean too, fortunately. Breakfast is not that rich...just croissants and some bred and cheese...however, not that bad. Good point is that the hotel is less than 10 mins walk from the underground and even closer to buses. in 10 mins time u r in the city center. If u look for something basic and have no need to recall a nice room in yr mind and pics, then go for it. If u want a pleasant place, then pick some better hotel... this is really nothing more than a hostel.... (Lisa -Milan Italy)

It's a good hotel close to the underground and Nepliget bus station. Good for budget travels. Breakfast was simple, but good. The rooms were nice and clean. You can get easily to the main attractions.
