“Good hotel for what we needed!”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

I stayed here in a group with 9 lads for a stag do. The hotel had clean basic rooms, comfy beds and a mini bar in the room. It was located in a quite rough area with not much around just a few small local bars and shops such as tesco express so a taxi was needed to main bars and nightlife. The breakfast was basic continental and was included in the price of the room. The hotel staff were friendly but check out was slow. It was a good hotel for what we needed. We all had a excellent time while we stayed in Budapest.

For what you can expect at these very reasonable prices you can't be disappointed with atlast city, it was clean, reasonably near the city centre and had good service. The cleaning lady threw away my receipt for the return taxi and the hotel instantly offered to book and pay for a new one which was excellent. The breakfast was to a good standard. Absolutely no complaints.

I recently stayed at this very friendly hotel, it's the perfect location to get about , and use as a base.
The room was nice and warm, clean bedding and bathrooms, the only thing that let me down was the breakfast, which wasn't to choose from and the tea & coffee went cold quickly.
But definitely go back again

Its a little unfair to complain about this hotel considering the prices. If you want luxury, then easy, go elsewhere and pay more.
Yes the hotel is in a run down area and there are a fair few homeless people wandering around(Budapest has thousands anyway) but as you would do in anywhere you are not familiar with be aware.I stayed for 3 days and never once did I feel worried or threatened by the locals in the area which is pretty clean, they don't speak to or pester you. Incidentally the hotel can't help its location, but that's why prices are low.
Rooms are basic, but clean and warm with comfy beds and breakfast is OK.Not a big selection, but if you want more then you have to go elsewhere, put your hand in your pocket and part with some cash. Simple !!

Hotel in very nice located, near the tram, 7 minutes walk to the metro station. Lot's of markets nearby - for ex. Tesco express. Nice service, the room was big and clean. Very comfortable beds. The Bathroom was nice, but not new. It was clean. Wifi in lobby but on 4th floor we have free wifi point 'gery' . Breakfast was good, but not very good. If you need nice, cheap hotel you can choose the atlas hotel.

The stay itself was fine, average is a fair description. The rooms were fine and it got the job done. There were plenty of negatives though such as the deafening street noise and the tired hallways. The breakfast is also a little light on content but there is enough to keep you entertained. Confusingly, despite no obvious sources of heat, in the middle of December the hotel felt like a furnace. This means you have to either bear the temperature or open the windows and bear the tram noises.

On a last note, as there were seven of us I wasn't too bothered, but if you're travelling alone, the neighbourhood would feel intimidating with the number if unsavoury looking characters on the route into town

Reviewed 27 September 2012

The best advice I can give to everyone is to simply stay away. To begin with, the location of the hotel is in a rough neighborhood. Safety is definitely an issue. Please do not walk alone around at night. It is quite a walk to the nearest subway station too. There is nothing nearby to eat at. The rooms are so basic that it is hard to understand why you paid so much for the room. Safety deposit boxes do not work. The shower is so small it is almost impossible to have a proper bath. The staff are not very helpful. One lady in the front desk is particularly incompetent.

WiFi is only available in the lobby. There is a bar there also.

Wouldn't have been so bad is they labelled their hotel correctly as a 1 star and charged appropriately.
