I visited this hotel on a college trip with 20 students and 3 teachers. We paid roughly £350 for 3 nights. The hotel was horrible. The staff were fine but we only saw about 3 members of staff the whole time we were there.
Firstly the hotel is in a rough neighbourhood and even our tour guide on the first day (who was born in budapest) told us to not go out on our own or in small groups at night because the street was dangerous. We encountered many drunk/homeless people living on the side of the street.
The reception was fine but the bar was extremely small even though the drinks were very cheap. We paid for bed and breakfast but we only went to breakfast on the first day as it was so poor. There was minimal cooked breakfast and mainly just bread and butter as there was no toaster to make toast. The orange/apple juice machine was completely empty and only dispensed left over water so the remaining three mornings we went to the tesco down the road and bought breakfast from there. The rooms were small but our view was horrible, just run down high rise buildings. The bed's weren't comfy and the sheets didn't smell particularly nice either. The bathroom was better but the shower was broken as you could not turn it on without it spraying out of the door and soaking the floor every morning. But the shower/toilet/sink were good quality. The hallways were lit by motion sensor lighting which very often was turned off so you had to find a light switch or try to get into your room in the dark. The corridors/landings were often filled with groups of students staying up late, which was fine because we were one of them but for other people staying here I can imagine this is horrible. The stairways were never lit either so it was quite scary walking up flights of stairs in the dark. Overall the hotel was horrible and had I not been with my friends I would have hated this, if i went with my family or on a trip outside of college I would have been horrified to stay in these conditions.
