“What a location”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Came to this hotel as a surprise city break for my boyfriends birthday and it didn't disappoint. The hotel itself was clean and tidy - our room as also massive with a separate lounge and bedroom. The staff were very friendly and very helpful.
As it was my boyfriends birthday on the day we arrived they left out a little card to him and also a bottle of sparkling wine. Just perfect.

The location is also something else! right next to the Chain Bridge and within walking distance of so much in the city. My boyfriend and I didn't use a taxi once... and believe me, we went pretty much everywhere! If you don't mind a walk even the city park and thermal baths are do-able.
There are great restaurants and bars just around the corner so this is just a perfect base.

Just a shame we had to leave as this was a great peaceful haven.

Room Tip: We were in 508. If you look out of the bedroom window, you could see the bridge.

Nice hotel, great location - only a few steps from the chain bridge and the basilica, spacious clean rooms, private parking, good breakfast, but the highlight definitely the staff! Comparing the prices to the hotels nearby its a great value too.

I just returned from a 3 night's stay in Starlight Suiten Hotel, Budapest.
What great rooms you get for a reasonable prices! There is a separate bathroom, bedroom and living room. There are two TVs, a safe, a minibar, a microwave and free coffee (Nescafé) and tea (Twinnings). Free Wifi works perfectly.
The buffet breakfast was good!
The reception staff was very helpful!!!
The location is just great: very close to the Danube river, the Chain Bridge, the Erzsébet Square, ...
I would certainly recommend this hotel!

This was my first visit to Budapest and this hotel seemed to fit my needs, reasonably priced and central. The suite was comfortable and clean, the area was split in three, bedroom, lounge and bathroom. The fridge was well stocked with various drinks and a bottle of wine on top of the counter.
The shower was powerful and the water hot.
I paid extra for the buffet breakfast, it was a typical European breakfast scrambled eggs and bacon but suited it me fine.

The staff were all very friendly and all spoke good English.

The corridors carpets were in need of replacement but otherwise a very good Hotel

A group of 9 of us stayed here for two nights in May. It is a perfect location, behind the Four Seasons Hotel and turn right out the door 5 minutes from the chain bridge and the river. Rooms are large, air conditioned and quiet - a refuge from the bustle of the city. Across the river you have the castle and funicular to get up to it. Great views of the parliament building during the day and the night.

Turn left out the door you are heading 5 minutes for Café Kor which some consider is one of the best restaurants in Budapest. You need to book online in advance, but we found it excellent and really good value. All the buzz is around that general area near the cathedral.

The open top bus tickets are a great deal for around 15 euro and include bus trips ( a bit hot and boring) boat trips (a must do) and coupons for free soup, free shots, free beer and even free bicycle hire on Margaret island.

A perfect place to explore a lovely city.

The suite was very comfortable and spacious. There was a separate bedroom as well as a good size living room.Also a wet bar with a small fridge and micro. It was ideally located on the Pest side ,about a 10 minute walk to the Chain Bridge. The negative aspect was the breakfast. There were 2 choices:Continental and Buffet. The Buffet was 7 euros pp which was not worth it.We have had much better breakfasts that have been included with the room in other hotels.

Thank you for your review; we are really sorry to read that the breakfast did not meet your expectations. Please note that it is a standard in the Starlight Suiten to only use the best high quality ingredients for breakfast, that is the reason why there is an extra fee for that.

We booked five rooms in this hotel for a week in preparation for a family wedding. We had people coming and going on various dates, some allergies to contend with, to say nothing of the stresses that come with wedding arrangements. The entire staff at this hotel could not have been more helpful. From discussing our initial needs, to booking transportation, to giving us guidance around the city...every staff member whom we encountered was polite, helpful and patient.
The rooms here are perfect, especially for a longer stay. We had a very spacious bedroom with attached bath, a large and comfortable living room, a microwave, sink and fridge/minibar in the kitchen corner. When we wanted something quick and easy, it was steps to a CBA little market where we could buy sandwich supplies and beverages etc to be heated up or kept cool in our little kitchen. Great way to save time and money!
The location of this hotel couldn't be better. Again, literally steps to the line 2 tram that runs along the Danube. We could hop on the tram, or pick up the metro for longer distances. But the best part was that we didn't really need to use either. With the location of the Starlight Suiten we were able to go on foot to just about anywhere. We could cross the Chain Bridge and enjoy the Buda views, we could get to Parliament in 15 minutes, we could walk to the cool "ruin pubs" off Andrassy Ut. The public transportation was handy when we were tired but this location allows the happy walker to get just about everywhere.
The rooms are clean and tidy, the staff is helpful, the continental breakfast is ample, and the price is more than reasonable. We will definitely use the Starlight Suiten again when we return to visit the newlyweds!

Room Tip: We were in 306. Our room faced a bank or some sort of big building. There was no view, but none wa...
