“The perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 15 May 2011

Came to Budapest late at night. Stepped into the hotel and four days later I could not say a bad thing about it. Nice and big rooms. Nice staff. Quiet. The location near the Chainbridge and close to the city center is also perfect.

I stayed here for a couple of nights for business, and was very pleased with this hotel. The reception area is very pleasant, and the staff very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was a good size - as they are all suites there's plenty of room, with a separate bedroom, living area with small kitchenette, and bathroom. I had a look at my colleagues room, and the only difference was that he had a sofa rather than 2 chairs, and a bath with shower over rather than a shower - so I suggest that you ask specifically for a bath if you would like one.

Everything was spotlessly clean, and having read other comments I can assure people that the entry system is indeed card entry and therefore very secure. The room has temperature control, however I couldn't get this to work and the room just got hotter when I turned it down, so I had to open the windows instead.

The shower was a good strength - always an important feature for me! The towels were rather small though, they could do with being larger.

Breakfast was very good - continental breakfast is served, and there's a very good range.

Location was fantastic - just a short walk to most sights, and plenty of good restaurants very close by, so the fact that the hotel doesn't have a restaurant really isn't an issue.

One useful feature is that the wireless internet is charged by the time used, so if you buy 6 hours, then that might last over several days, so no need to buy 24 hours and renew it each day.

All in all I would definitely stay there again if I return to Budapest.

Hello,

We spent 2 days in Budapest and came across this hotel by way of... Trip Advisor. It caught are interest more for location then any other reasons. However, the fact of it being ranked #13 and the positive reviews from other seem that it would be a safe bet- it was!

The place has a fantastic location if you want to be close to the Danube River and see many of the sites in that surrounding area including: Chain Bridge, Markets, Central Shopping, Budapest Parlament, etc. In fact, it sits about 100 yards or less back from the Four Seasons Hotel, that alone might tell you something- nice area.

The hotel was OVERLY clean, staff way always very welcoming every time we entered the door, overly helpful. and the room was indeed- a suite. A bedroom with a living room- nice.

If you like clean, friendly, great location, and reasonable price, this is your hotel. Note, Budapest sights can be easily walked to many areas from this hotel. If you cannot walk it or elect otherwise, the metro is less than a 1/4 mile away (if that).

To add to all of this, we visited over 12/27-12/29 and it was about -4degrees celsius each day. However, it was such a great trip and the hotel made it all that much better in not having to walk over over to Budapest (or that far) from the location of the hotel.

We travel quite a bit, this year we have gone to Africa twice from Las Vegas and Europe twice. We know what it means to here of good quality locations when you are looking for peace of mind. We strongly recommend this hotel if it fits your price range, you'll not be mistaken, at least not from what we experienced.

Happy New Year and have fun in Budapest, it was a blast even being so cold! Loved it!

Our Viking River Cruise down the Danube ended in Budapest and we decided to spend an extra night to explore the city a bit more. The Starlight Suiten hotel is a very short walk from where our boat docked - we rolled our luggage over ourselves. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and very helpful - spoke excellent English too! Our suite was great - the "sitting" area (couch, writing desk, TV and a tiny kitchenette) was very comfortable, clean, and modern, and the bedroom was good-sized. Loved the towel heater in the bathroom! Very good continental breakfast included. Location can't be beat - we walked all over the city from this central point. I believe there are Starlight Suites in Vienna and Bucharest too. I defintely recommend this hotel.

if you are looking for a great hotel with an amazing location then this is it! My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of the hotel and the city. The front desk staff were super, going beyond the call of duty when asked to assist us in the middle of the night (due to time zones) with banking problems due to online fraud. We had no problems with language at the front desk and other staff were eager to smile and say hello. The breakfast was HUGE (and included in our package along with free internet).
The suite was very large, with a big sitting area with fridge/bar/couch/tv and desk, the bedroom was also large with a queen bed, wardrobes, shelving, make-up area and the ensuite 4 piece bathroom was smaller than the rest of the rooms but average for Europe.
We never made it down to the fitness area (too busy walking the city and eating the wonderful breakfasts!!) so cannot comment on this area.
We WILL return to Budapest and we WILL stay at the Starlight Suiten - no question.

This was by far the best place I stayed in Budapest. Affordable, clean, good location, unintrusive service. Rooms are really comfortable and modern.
