Close to main train stationPosted Aug 25, 2013
Pros: Our courtyard room was quiet The room had a/c and it was needed during our stay Location
Cons: The toilet was noisy and slow to fill but it did work fine The courtyard is the designated smoking area so it is possible to get smoke in your room
Location: Choice of restaurants in the neighbourhood was limited
We are a family of four and found the hotel to be fine for our needs. It was near tram lines and subway. The breakfast was good but somewhat limited in choice. The room was a little cramped but our children each had their own bed.

Great budget hotel for familiesPosted Apr 8, 2013
Pros: room is big and buffet breakfast
Cons: area surrounding the hotel
Hotel is OK, though neighbourhood is little bit rough. However, I have seen that police is very vigilant. I shall recommend this hotel for families, as family room is big and breakfast is an added bonus. Staff members are very helpful. Hotel use a taxi company. They are also very good in terms of safety and reliability.

Good Location, friendly and helpful staffPosted Nov 16, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel was a short walk from the Metro with access to all locations of interest. Staff were very helpful in providing service and giving suggestions for dining and other activities. The room was hot at night because once the heat is on, it is on full blast. Temperature could be adjusted by opening windows but that also allowed street noise. Earplugs helped. Carpet was stained but did not appear dirty. Room was very clean overall and linens fresh. Breakfast was very good, typical European fare - great!! Would stay there again if I return to Budapest, perhaps next year.

I would stay here again.Posted Sep 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
I enjoyed my stay at the Star City Hotel. It was convenient for my one night stay in Budapest and I felt it was excellent value. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast, though quite basic, was adequate. My room was on the first floor; it was comfortable and clean but a little small. The window overlooked the central courtyard and so it was very quiet in the room. It is easy to get to the centre of Budapest by bus and it is a short walk to the nearest metro stop. I would certainly stay here again if I came back to Budapest.
Very helpful StaffPosted Aug 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel was located in a run-down residential area. From the outside, the hotel did not look appealing at all but the lobby was not bad. Carpet in the room was in POOR condition. It was so bad that I did not feel comfortable walking on it without my shoes. They were so kind to include the breakfast with the hotel stay but the breakfast was TERRIBLE. Orange juice tasted like OJ mixed in water. Overall "included breakfast" was worthless. Again, Staff was good. Spoke very well English but I think this hotel can do a whole lot better in terms of cleanliness to attract more customers.

We enjoyed the hotel staff and the breakfast. The bathroom was a little uncomfortable. The location was pretty close to the Kelli train station and the city park (where szechenyl bath house is).

Not a bad hotel.Posted Jun 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
IThe location is not very central, however, I was able to walk all over the city from there and just took a cab at night on the way back. The service was good but the room was not the best. My room slept two people and if you can split the cost it would be much better but not the kind of hotel for one person to just relax. Rather, it's more of a place to sleep after touring the city all day.

Hotel Star consistently lives up to its name.Posted Apr 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel was welcoming and calmed us down after a tiresome walk brought on by a taxi at Keleti trying to overcharge us - we walked away from the taxi to the hotel which was fairly close by. Bus tickets on sale proved to be a good facility though at one point these ran out. Bar was good value - minibar less so. Breakfasts good quality and varied.
