“Great location, large rooms”
Reviewed 6 October 2009

Stayed over the New Year's holiday and once located (it's a bit of a challenge to find!) the location was very convenient to Vaci Utca and other key sites. The staff at the hotel and the cafe next door were so helpful and friendly. The rooms were large but very basic and the bath was very spacious as well. The single room had a shared balcony, overlooking a courtyard which was not too scenic in winter, but a nice feature given the budget price. Hearty breakfast with bread, meat and cheeses.

Truly a gem! Beautiful rooms, friendly staff, good location and excellent breakfast. One of the nicest hotels I've stayed at in Europe for the price. Would recommend this to anyone.

It is very difficult to know what to expect when you first see the entrance to the Hotel Kalvin House as you enter into the hall of an oldish building rather than the hotel itself. Once inside, the hotel is spotlessly clean with large bedrooms. The furniture is old fashioned but the spacious rooms and modern bathrooms make up for that. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast is self service and was fine. Rooms at the front were a bit noisy so if you want less noise ask for a room at the back though the room may be less bright. You can book a taxi pick up from the airport and back through the hotel before you leave home. You'll be met by the driver and you just pay him direct - very reasonable for the five of us. Location is excellent as it is barely a 5 minute walk to the Central Market, the Green Bridge and Vati Utca which has lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Probably not for you if you want a standard, characterless chain type hotel room but I would recommend this to anyone as a very good central hotel which is great value and very friendly.

In search of an affordable hotel that offers you a comfortable room, a simple yet good breakfast, and on a location in the heart of Budapest? This is it! Within walking distance of downtown Budapest, the Danube river, the subway (the oldest on the European mainland) and all of the touristic hotspots. I've been there numerous times over the years, and it is just fine!

The Hotel Kalvin was very easy to find and only a short walk from the metro stop. The rooms in this hotel are some of the largest i've ever seen and very nicely furnished and very clean. The photos of this hotel are very acurate. The staff were very friendly and helpful and circled locations on a map when we were stumped.
Near the hotel is the largest indoor market in Budapest and if you love food you shouldn't miss the opertunity to visit as it is only at the end of street.
Also just around the corner are lots of tram stops and bars and restaurants.

Location, price & staff at this hotel were excellent. The rooms were huge and the breakfast was ok. The staff was very helpful whenever we needed anything.

The only downside was we had a room facing the street and it was pretty loud when people & trucks were out there.
