3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

Location, location, location... that was the main point. Brekfast was ok and the beds where good. Rooms are very basic but the wi-fi worked well. Smell in the bathroom was nos so great. Hotell is very labyrinthine.

Dear Panu L ,

Thank you very much for sharing your opinion about your stay at the City Hotel Mátyás.
We are glad to hear that you were satisfied with the location and the room facilities. The hotel rooms and corridors were created in a historical building and this feature gives our uniqueness among most of the hotels in Budapest.
More than 85% are non-smoking- and around 15% are smoking of the rooms. Signs are displayed on every door. It may happen that the guests smoke in a non-smoking room and the housekeeping department has to ventilate the room all day and even for a couple of days after them. In these cases we kindly ask to inform the front desk immediately in order to solve the inconvenience.
Sincerely hope to have the chance to welcome you back soon!

Best regards,
Zsuzsanna K. Csapone
Hotel Director

We stayed here for a week. The rooms are simple, but clean and nice. Our room faced a quiet backstreet. The location is really perfect if you, like us, want to explore the vibrant Inner City district (Belváros) and the Erzsébetváros and Ferencváros disctricts, which are within walking distance. The hotel is also just a stone's throw from the Danube. For what you get the price is really quite amazing.

We stayed for 3 nights in November.

The hotel is old, full of character, clean, warm, well managed. The reception staff were very helpful.

The rooms were the normal international rooms - nothing exceptional. There was a fridge but no coffee-making facilities - although there was a machine in Reception. I had a ground floor room, and was initially concerned that the road works mentioned in other reviews were going to disturb my sleep. They didn't, and should be finished before 2014. My room had a shower, which worked fine but was a tad small - nowhere I could stand to get out of the stream of water, so I had to switch it off while I soaped myself. Plenty of coat hangers.

The breakfast staff were excellent - we were a party of five and they remembered us after the first morning.The breakfast is buffet-style, in a remarkable cavern with frescos, stained glass, resin pillars - absolutely bats!! Amazing.

It's in walking distance from a lot of the attractions, 100 feet from the Danube, there are tram and metro stops very near.

Excellent value, and well recommended.

the entrance seems old but we liked that, adds character to the hotel! once to go up to the floors with rooms it is more modern and warm inside. we got a room facing danube and its spacious, wifi works great, shower is nice and strong, breakfast was plentiful and it is a few steps away from danube and the main vaci utca street. its a short walk to the christmas market, theres a bus close by which helps if you need to go to train station, we are returning to budapest in 3 days and will come here again. the beds are very comfortable !

Room Tip: we just got the room with danube room
