1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2008

This hotel was an absolute dive! Our room was old, dirty, stained carpet and bed sheets, ants crawling on the bed, shower head and shower door fell off, mold in the shower. They kept telling us they would move us to another room but everytime we checked with the front desk nothing was available or they didn't understand english. We were with a group of people so changing hotels was not optional. The hotel is also next to a park of some sort with music blasting all night, every night; on top of that we had to listen to all the drunks trying to find their way to their cars parked in front of the hotel. More often then not the party goers stopped to chit chat (aka yell) with other drunks. We only had breakfast at the hotel, a buffett that included all you can eat rolls & 2 small slices of meat and cheese that was on our plates when we arrived. We travelled around Europe for 17 days and I was not ready to come home to the USA until we stayed here. The only positive I found about this hotel was an archeology dig behind the hotel that I found to be fascinating. This hotel is NOT for the faint of heart!

My daughter and i stayed at the Best Western Lido March 08. Dont be fooled by the 4 star rating. If you are looking for a clean warm cheap 2 star then this one is for you, but beware of the SCRAMBLED EGGS!!!!!
The Hotel does operate a shuttle service to and from the centre although we were not made aware of this until the second day of our stay, if another guest had'nt told us about it i doubt if we would have ever been told although once found it was an excellent service just a shame the last trip back from the centre was 1800 would have been better if it was 2200 as the taxi's can be quite expensive. (This service was to me the Hotel's saving grace).

we stayed at the best western lido for one night. we had originally booked for 4 nights, travelling with another couple.we booked this hotel because it was cheap, and the other couple were on a tight budget. in the event, the other couple couldn't travel and so we changed our booking to one night, with the other 3 nights in a better hotel in the city. thank goodness we did . this hotel is awful. they had lost our booking upon arrival, but found us a room anyway. the room was dismal, old fashioned and scruffy, badly in need of renovation. at least it was warm and clean though. the poky bathroom had a shower which flooded all over the bathroom floor since the shower door didn't close properly. we chose to grab a quick meal in the restaurant as it was late when we arrived. the evening meal was lovely, and very cheap, but breakfast next morning was another story. the hot food was inedible, so i just had a bit of bread and jam. it was supposed to be a buffet, but there was little choice, and it all looked pretty unappetising. we left the hotel after breakfast to move to our new hotel. we used the minibus srevice provided by the hotel. it was a long way into the city, but as we were the only passengers, the driver took us right to the hotel door, which he didn't have to do, and we appreciated that. hotel lido is not in a convenient position for sight seeing budapest as it is way out of the city. hotel lido is cheap, there is nothing else positive about it.

Only reason to stay in this 2 star (not 4) hotel is if you have business in the area, although i'd rather spend an extra 30-40 euros and stay in a better hotel. Location is in a residential area far off from the city center and away from public transportation. Rooms have not been renovated since the '70s and are quite gloomy and depressing. Room service is fast but food is just ok. Fruit salad consists of 1 apple and 1 banana. Paperwalls. At least there's wireless in the room. Glad I got here at 8pm and that I am leaving tomorrow morning.

Nice hotel.good medium sized room.breakfast good average choice but how many different things can you eat??.swimming pool,ten pin bowling alley,tennis,restuarant ok but quite.But reason being go out of the back gate by gym/fitness and sauna i believe . And there are outdoor restaurants/bars/bands galore all facing on the danube.(please note there are mosquitos)and that was the name of the restaurant/bar we liked best. hotel out a bit but hotel runs free shuttle bus twice a day.Budapest worth a visit look round the city and go on the river we spent a week here and loved it change your money in the city good rates

Mum and I stayed 4 nights in may '06. Good location by the river, but beware of mosquitoes!
The nearset HEV train stop 20 minutes walk away, then a metro ride into the city centre. We used the free hotel shuttle bus-reliable and easy to book the night before. Last pick up was 6.30pm-too early if you wanted to stay out at night. Without the bus, it would have been difficult and tiring or expensive to get into the city (5miles away)
Hotel room was large and clean. Staff were friendly, most spoke English. Breakfast was good- cooked and the usual cold continental. Didn't use the restaurant for evening meals as it was expensive and uninviting. Found better, cheaper restaurants and bars on the waterfront; lobby bar was never open. Felt safe walking in the area at night.
Pool was clean, but needed a revamp, jacuzzi not working and advertised bowling club was closed.

Overall good value for the money we paid, would definately stay there again provided that the shuttle bus was still operating.

Cheap to stay at but 15 minutes from centre by car or taxi. hotel run a good free shuttle service into Budapest but this finishes at 18.00hrs. The taxi fare into Budapest is about £ 10 so to go into town for the evening you are faced with £20 per night for taxis. The breakfast is no more than adequate.Otherwise the hotel is modern clean and pleasant. You pays your money and takes your chance !, but at £25 per night per person it takes some beating on price (booked through Easyjet)
