If you don't mind the distance from the city center - that's the best choice!

Posted Aug 4, 2010
They allowed me to check in at 8AM without extra charge. Good big breakfast, free parking, not easy to find though - it's better to have some kind of GPS device. Far away from the city center but the bus stop is in front of the hotel. Take number 34 and the at the end of the route switch to subway. It takes about 40-45 minutes to get to the city center and you can buy tickets from the reception.

All right

Posted Jun 17, 2009
The room was small and somewhat dark with communist-era decor. It was not at all like the photo, and therefore did not correspond to expectations. Dinner and breakfast were very good. Train service to the center was frequent and fast, but the station was 30 minutes away by foot.

Very pleased with Alfa Art

Posted Jun 15, 2009
We selected the Alfa Art Hotel for several reasons, some of the most important being its location away from the center, free parking, convenient to public transportation and overall value. It was an excellent choice. The staff spoke English and were very friendly and helpful; our room was comfortable and had A/C and a minibar; all the public areas were attractive and spotlessly clean; the buffet breakfast was one of the best in our month tour of Central Europe; nice restaurant with many choices; a lovely outdoor terrace just by the path along the river; many other amenities. Will definietly stay there again.

Great hotel but too far from town.

Posted Sep 20, 2008 on Hotels.com
Hotel and staff very nice and helpful. Great breakfast and dining area. Sad parts were the hotel is very far from downtown and the shuttle they claim to have to take you there does not exist. You will pay at leats 30 US dollars by taxi to get you to town. Also taxi drivers show their anquish while driving because of the traffic. Too bad for such a nice place. My next trip to Budapest will find me downtown for sure. Pay the extra for a closer hotel and you will certainly save in the long run.

Very nice but far away

Posted Sep 18, 2008 on Hotels.com
I was very pleased with this hotel and its staff for my 2 night stay in Sep 2008. Clean, great free breakfast and super service. You must first do your homework though on how far you would like to be from downtown or historic area. It took me an hour and a half by airport bus with no other stops from the airport. The traffic is really bad most of the day. You will spend lots of money with a taxi getting to and from anywhere. The downtown courtesy shuttle does not exist like they say. The night receptionist said check in the morning to see because he really did not know of this. In the morning I was told maybe a week or so in advance they may be able to accomodate a ride for you downtown. You will also see much frustration from taxi drivers when they are stuck in this incredible traffic as they feel they are losing time and money, and they expect more of a tip for their anguish. not pleasant.. approx 25 US dollars to get you downtown and maybe more getting back. So spend the extra money and stay downtown. I will promise it will be cheaper for you overall. I certainly wish this was closer to town because of the unique atmosphere of this little hotel.

Lovely

Posted Jul 23, 2008 on Hotels.com
Although quite a bit outside the centre of Budapest, if you looking for a quiet relaxing stay with beautiful scenery, clean and comfortable rooms, this is the place! Staff were lovely and welcoming, nothing, I would enjoy returning to this hotel.

Alfa Art is in a nice quite location with a nice view with great staff

Posted May 28, 2008
However, it is quite far from the center of town, and public transportation back and forth to the center is not convenient, requiring at least one transfer, sometimes more. If you like being in the middle of the action, this isn't the place. We enjoyed the quite location and the back terrace of the hotel had a very nice view of the Duna (Danube) River. If I ever returned to Budapest for pleasure again, I would go back to Alfa Art Hotel. I would recommend first time visitors to stay closer to town.

Beautiful location

Posted May 28, 2008
This hotel is situated in a beautiful, peaceful, and quiet location on the Danube. It's a bit far from the city center but there is an excellent ferry service a few minutes away from the hotel taking one to the heart of Budapest.
