“Nice hotel, rooms outdated...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

This hotel is a nice old fashion hotel, which looks great in the common areas (lobby etc.) but the room is a bit dated.
the thing about the room that i found really disappointing was the bathroom that had knobs which i've last seen at least 20 years ago...

a little spruce would go a long way for this hotel.

other than this hotel and staff was very nice, intresting location and good breakfast.

Room Tip: no view so don't bother with the floor...

After staying in two hotels that were super loud, the Radisson was a welcome oasis! The location can't be beat - just a few minutes' walk to a central train station made getting to and from the hotel a breeze. Budapest is overall a very walkable city, so there was plenty to do right in the vicinity of the hotel without having to take the train, but having it that accessible was great.

The rooms were nice, well appointed, clean, and quiet. The staff was polite - though not overly friendly - and the property had some nice amenities (fitness area, gift shop in the lobby).

I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a great, centrally located property that meets most travelers' needs.

Stayed here for a long weekend in December – Lovely hotel, spotlessy clean , in the centre of Pest but not noisy. Great location, very near bus, tram and train stations but within walking distance of the Christmas Fair and main streets/areas of Pest.
Our room was on the 6th floor, to the back of the building, very peaceful and quiet. A good size double room and bathroom - very clean, warm and well maintained – good choice for breakfast too.

The service was really good. They were always there helping you out and welcoming all the time. The man by the fitness area was really friendly, so as the staff in the breakfast. Even saying hello while having your head down! Means they really care. This is great!

The beds were a bit too hard for my opinion and pillows too soft. Here is Park Plaza better. And hopefully all the rooms will soon be renovated. My friends had a old room that smelled like cigarettes. And it was a bit strange that housekeeping didnt give more soaps but it wasnt really empty either.

Room Tip: We had the one to the back, guess its good and more quiet. The 6th floor. You should ask for a renov...

Radisson has done here what it does best all around Old Europe: take an ageing grand hotel of early 20-th century splendour, refurbish it into a modern 4-star venue for both business and holidays.

It's typical Radisson class. Best for business travelers really. Right off the main train station; centrally located; conference rooms, business center, large reception, fitness center (there are only two exercise bikes, but there is a swimming pool + sauna), attentive staff with a good command of English & German.

One gripe: the wireless connection in my room was almost not usable. Very weak signal, going off every 10 minutes or so. Moving around the room did not solve the issue, not even standing outside the door in the hallway. Huge disappointment, since I was on business trip. It was too late to complain, the resident geek was away. I had to go down to the lobby to get decent wifi. I was in room 214, and it's at the far end of an unending hallway - and gholly, next to my room was that noisy ice-cube machine, audible from inside the room.

The other gripe isn't too serious, could actually mean the Radisson is doing well. In my first two days there was that huge group of German retirees; as the last Teuton was leaving - sigh of relief - a crowd of French retirees was pouring in. OK, 4-star off-season mass-tourism is made possible by the generous West European pension funds. That created huge lines at breakfast, elevators, etc. But this is the downside of success, is it not? I did not expect an empty hotel did I. Heck, do I now need 5-star to feel exclusive and individually pampered?

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the far end of the hallways, they're very long, or insist on a working wifi and n...

The hotel is quite old and needs an urgent overhaul. Nevertheless staff is friendly and tries to be helpful. But having a insect infestation (ants) in an European city hotel...this is a first in a 4 star hotel. OK the hotel tried to fix it, but using a bug killer spray and leave all the dead ants in the room is not the right approach. Swapping the room maybe... Sorry never again.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for sharing your review about your stay at Radisson Blu Béke Hotel.

I regretted to learn from your comment that you had some negative experience with ants in your room. We are really sorry for this inconvenience. As you also mentioned our staff tried to solve the problem as soon as possible, but unfortunately we could not provide you another room that night as our hotel was fully booked.

I do apologize in the name of the Housekeeping Department, please be assured that I will forward your comment to the Head of the department.

Please note that we take all guest remarks very seriously and are doing every effort we can to improve our hotel and services. We do very much hope you will find the time and opportunity to return to our hotel and that we can regain your confidence.

I agree with some others who have said the hotel appears understaffed. The staff who we have spoken to have always done their best to help but at times they have been overwhelmed. E.g one person on desk at peak arrivals time.
The sofa was tired, towels thin and fraying and carpets in need of replacement. Thankfully though bedding was clean and acceptable. Decoration was clean and fresh and bathroom clean but cold water pressure in sink was very low.
Air conditioning turned off for first part of stay but remained suboptimal even once 'working' on full power. The glazing at the front of the hotel fails to block the sound of traffic from the busy road the hotel is located on. It is however very conveniently located to access the railway station.
I mixed review, as a points reward stay just acceptable, but had I been paying rack rate I would have been sorely disappointed for a four star hotel. Good free wifi is very welcome though.
