“3 days long business trip in Szeged”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

I think is this hotel is quite good. The location is excellent; in the middle of the city center so you can reach famous things quickly. Note that people from parties crossing Széchenyi square so there was one night when I woke bacuse of shouting students. The staff was kind and did their job good. I like this old, Renaissance look. The room had a small wooden smell and the ceiling is at 4 meters so it looks nice! My room number was 214 and and first day after woke up the room was a bit warm because heating was turned on. I tried to close it but the switch was broken. Receptionist woman said that this room is the warmest room and she know that the heating switch is broken. But nothing serious it was just a bit warm and I prefer colder rooms to sleep. The bathroom is clean and absolutely ok. The TV is a monitor too so use it for your tablet too. Breakfast is good, scrambled eggs, cooked eggs, Frankfurt sausages, 3 type of sausages, snorker, muesli, milk, coffee, cocoa drink, soda, butter, jams, bread, crescent, cakes, tomato, paprika, 3-4 type of cheeses. The price is fair for these.

Room Tip: If you like warm rooms or going to travel in winter then choose room 214.

Let me start with the good things. Hotel Tisza is right in the heart of the city, you cannot get a better location. The building is grand , old but maintained all right, the interior is very beautiful. The staff (the receptionist women) are kind, and the breakfast is okay. The price is attractive so I guess this, and the location is a big point to choose this accommodation. Wifi works fine.

BUT (here comes the negative part)... The rooms are clean but would need a little update and the beds..!!! OMG! I made sure to reserve a room with double bed (french bed as it is called in Hungary) which basically should be a queen size bed. Now, despite the booking confirmed such bed, the room had two single (twin size) beds with WOODEN FRAME, just pushed together. I am sure it is fine for friends or a sport team, but not suitable for people actually want to cuddle in bed (unless one of them is willing to sleep on the wooden frame, or they decide to sleep on one single bed together). The two beds kept slipping away from each other for the slightest motions. Another thumb down for the tiny miniature soap for two people.
No hair dryer. :( Keep this in mind when you book a room in Tisza.
There is a smokers corner in the back yard, but you gotta do it standing between the parking cars, not a single bench to be found. I don't know if this is common, but we were asked to pay at the check in (!). I don't like that.
This hotel had much better years, and it has great potentials, but as it is now I would not call it customer friendly. Its location makes to popular but it could be run much much better.

The hotel is located next to the main square. The multilingual staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast wasn't amazing but more than adequate. The room was decent: good mattress, nice blankets, and hot water. But note that I had heeded other reviewers' warnings/suggestions to spring for the superior room if I could afford it.

The hotel is a relic from the past when it was an elegant, downtown hotel and also from the Socialist era. But it is in a super location, it's perfectly clean and the service is great. Everything worked, which can't be said about many hotels with more stars. A very good value for your money.

Looks good on the outside but our basic room was very dated, with a shower room squeezed in containing one of those macerating loos and a shower which was in a poor condition. The quilt covers did not fully cover the quilts; there was a hole in the centre of the upper side which showed the quilt through it; I've never seen that before! The breakfast room was amazing and very opulent, and the breakfast was OK, especially when we asked for fried eggs and they were cooked specially for us.

Like going back in time, I think the hotel has had better days. Probaby staely in it's day but merely funtional now.
That said, it would be unfair not to say the rooms were clean (though small) and the staff were friendly and helpful.
I didn't like the shower too much because it was hand held, no hook up on the wall. And the water pump was noisy. Though again the shower was clean.
Nice city with plenty of places to eat and drink, and we were lucky enough to stumble on the Alarbardos restaurant about half hour walk from the hotel, in which we had the most fantastic meal.
