Hotel Gloria
Ranked #242 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed 14 December 2013

Average rating just for location and price. With higher price it would be less than poor rating. For the price app. 20 € it is very good choice. It is near metro station, nepliget bus station and on the way to airport - that is the main thing why I have choosed this hotel. I spend in this hotel just few hours (short sleeping before morning flihg) so I don´t know nothing about breakfast and other services.
Just for sleeping it is OK.

Nice neighbourhood, quiet, easy acces to city center, decent breakfast, gentle staff, a bit old but not oldish, clean ...
Excellent for tourists who want a fair, decent hotel with easy acces to the airport as well as to the city center.
Not reccomended for fault-finding people.

Room Tip: Ask a room with "garden" view.

Close to Metro Station and Airport, very friendly prices.
The breakfast also surprised - as for such a low price it was more than sufficient.

The room was not perfectly clean, but also not nasty.

Should you visit Budapest and seek for economy hotel - I recommend Hotel Gloria

At the begining my wife and I were worried because of the bad criticism that we read but the hotel is very nice, the staff are very kind, the rooms are clean and the breakfast is great.
It is not far from a metro station.

Stayed for 4 nights. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The location away from the center was very quiet but it was only a short walk to the tram stop (a great way to get into the center of town) or metro. Very good value.

I can't say much. To be honest, I guess I should be satisfied with the overall experience, since the price my boyfriend and I stayed was low, so I guess it's expected. To be exact:
We made a reservation with 20 euros per night incl. breakfast 5 months prior to our visit. So yeah, it's pretty cheap, if you want to find a cheap place to stay.
The location: about 4 km away from the city. So you definetely need to use the subway/metro. And then walk about 1 km until the hotel. So it is a little bit tiring. Oh, and there is public transportation until 23:00, so you have to be back early.
The room: old furnitures, some of them a little bit broken. My own bed was squicky. And our room was noisy as well one night. No, no.. not because of the street. Because of another couple. Big minus: only hungarian channels on the TV, no english or german, something more international anyway..
The breakfast: it was ok. There was a variety, which however became boring after the 3rd day..
The service: nice people and stuff, especially at the reception. They were helpfull and explained us everything we needed. Only the lady at the breakfast room spoke no English, just a few German.

I have stayed at Gloria for 4 nights mid April 2013. I must agree there is a mistake with star rating. There are only three stars now and I think this better reflects the standard of this hotel. Clean towels changed daily, clean sheets and comfy beds.
There was fine food and friendly staff, all that you need for short stay. Location of the hotel surprisingly good- two metro station from the city centre- not even 5 minutes.
I would recommend Gloria for people like me; travellers on a budget, those who are not too fussy, who appreciate good company and prefer places with a nice atmosphere from the expensive hotels where guests are anonymous to each other and staff.
