“Poor Service, Filthy Rooms”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

Title says it all. Stay away from this place... if you want to see rats then go here. I was traveling alone when I saw this hotel while browsing online. I was looking for a place to stay and it was the one nearest my location. I actually thought that I had a good deal because price was cheap. I then realized that it was actually better if I stayed away from this hotel in the first place. Staff were not helpful, rooms were so-so, bathroom was filthy and I even saw one rat running after another. BAD!

I went for a dental trip in Budapest and the clinic kreativ dental proposed me to stay in this hotel, and even offered me my first free night. Filthy rooms, one of the dirtiest bath room than I have been given even in a hotel in my life, un friendly staff, terrible break fast ! I ran away the next morning.
The management is extremely unfriendly and not helpful at all. The front desk staff is very incompetent and obviously not trained to solve problems.

A big bed takes the whole room.No place for comfortable chairs and hardly any space for luggage.Worn down furniture and and overall impression of needed renovation.
The restaurant is OK,and so is the food.
The hotel is situated close to the metro,and easy accsess to city centre.
The staff is not very friendly - but professional and correct in their job.

Room Tip: Choose away from main road and metro to avoid noise.

Pretty clean and comfortable hotel with good breakfast. Located close to major shopping centers. If your room faces the street, it can be noisy. For a short stay is fine.

This hotel is clean and comfortable and excellent for travelling around Budapest. There is a train bus right outdie the door and one stop takes you to the main terminal where you can either get the underground to the capital etc or get trolley bues or trams elsewhere. Also at the terminus, there are good shopping malls and a fantastic Ikea where if you are feeling a bit homesick this does the trick becuase its virtually the same as in England.. I had an unfortunate incident in Budapest onn my first night and the hotel went out of their way to help me. I had the best cheese toastie I have ever tasted in the world at this hotel. The only fault is the beds. They are rock hard and can give you back ache if you're prone to these kind of ailments. The hotel is used for Kreativ dentist patients and I can hihgly recommend it.to future patients of the clinic.

Room Tip: ask for rooms on the first floor.

My boyfriend and me went on a Budapest tour and stayed at the Eben Hotel for bed and breakfast. The room was big, but there was no space to put away your luggage unless you unpack and store it in the closet. We had a TV (only a few programs worked) and a mini-bar. The bathroom wasn't too clean. We could see a few long hairs on the floor from previous costumers.
The hotel claims that they have Wi-fi all that you can access on every floor, but our connection wasn't too good although our foom was on 1st floor.
Breakfast was sorted as a buffet and was really good.
Eben is not located in the city centre, but metro station is a 5 min walk (approximately 8 min ride to Vaci street), and a tram station is right in front oh the hotel.

I will come again to this hotel because of it's price and position near the city centre.

Have stayed here a number of times over the last 10 years .Hvae mainluy stayed because ogf dental treatment nearby at the Kreativ clinic,but having said that I would still enjoy coming if I wasnt a Dental customer.
It is situated very close to a good shopping Mall and neat to a metro station from where you can take trains every 10 minutes into the centre of the city,its only a 15 minute ride.As Hungary is not in the Euro its a bit cheaper than going to Eurozone countries. we enjoy coming here ,the hotel is basic but clean and tv in all the rooms.The restaurant is very good with a good selection of dishes on the menu for lunch and dinner,although the hot breakfast is a bit strange and they could perhaps not bother!all the staff are very welcoming and friendly and nearly all speak english.
