Lovely Buda Site

Posted Apr 28, 2017 on Hotels
Enjoyed this Buda site. The view was great. The breakfast wonderful. The staff exceptionally helpful. The pillows were lumpy, terrible for comfort.

Dissatisfied.

Posted Aug 25, 2016
Pros: Good view, free parking, pleasant staff.
Cons: Need to clean more thoroughly, it will be better to renew some stuff or at least refurbish it. Noise insulation for the entrance door is necessary.
Hotel is quite old, but it was not the reason to set such a small marks. Rooms were not clean - spiderweb everywhere, lipstick on the bedside table, absence of noise insulation (you will hear everybody in corridor and neighbor rooms.

Superb value hotel for family stay - recommended!!

Posted Aug 9, 2015 on Hotels
Disclosure: we are staying at the Budai Hotel regularly as they have an unbeatable superb offer for families. We stay in the family suite (great value for money) - the children have their own bedroom, we have ours, there is a bathroom with a bath and an additional separate toilet. The rooms have an amazing view of the Budapest panorama (it is on a hill); the hotel is located in a very quiet neighborhood, so no noises at night. The staff are very nice, the hotel manager is very friendly, the rooms are clean & tidy. It is not a modern hotel, but perfectly adequate. We come by car - it is easy to park outside. It is also easily accessible by public transport - 10 mins walk to the nearest tram (it is the beginning/end of trams so easy to get on/off) with interconnecting metro, there are also direct buses to the centre eg to Keleti railway station. The breakfast is usually not included in price - I highly recommend it; it is a very good buffet breakfast with really varied choice, including individually ordered strong coffee and fresh fruit. We will definitely continue to stay at this hotel whenever we are in Budapest.

Lovely big room with great balcony

Posted Aug 29, 2014
Pros: See above - especially the views from our big balcony.
Cons: Would be really nice to have a fridge and kettle - as the shops are not close and the room we were in had plenty of room for this.
Location: Quiet mountain location - approx 8 km from shops etc.
We had the room with the big balcony. Really big room with separate lounge, big bathroom and separate hallway. Need a car to get to the shops or tourist things, but perfect spot high on the hill overlooking Budapest - great views. No English channels at all on the TV - so we couldn't watch TV. If there was a fridge and kettle provided, it would be lovely to spend a week in the serenity of this place. No shops anywhere nearby, but we just drove to Budapest (about 8 km) to buy our meals - the restaurant normally opens for night meals - but not when we were there because they werre catering for a wedding. This is where it would be good to have fridge and kettle - we could then be self sufficient. Great to have a lift, as we were on the 3rd floor, so that made it so much easier, as we had a lot of heavy bags.

Dear Lyn, thank you for staying in Budai Hotel! We are delighted to hear about your positive experience. We strive for guest satisfaction. I am glad to notify you that since your visit, we improved our TV service - we bought brand new flat-screen TVs in the beginning of 2015, and now we also offer English channels. We also bought brand new refrigerators into each room (1 per room), which are completely noiseless, and their capacity is 40 l. You can also use a kettle for free in the restaurant area. Now there is a tobacco and grocery store 900 m away from the hotel, you can reach it by car in 2 minutes. Lift is still working. Please visit us again and enjoy the improved service - the kettle, refrigerator and new TVs with English channels!

Bescheidenes Hotel.

Posted Apr 14, 2017 on Hotels
Ruhige Laage, allerdings man hat einen langen Weg zu fahren. Keine Garage - man hat das Auto vorm Hotel zu parken.

Slitet hotell som vann på sin charmighet

Posted Oct 14, 2016 on Hotels
Hotellet ligger i utkanten av Budapest. Fantastisk utsikt över staden. Positivt med fri parkering. Bemannad reception dygnet runt. Kom sent (23:30) men var inga problem att checka in. Rummet var slitet. Så rent som ett gammalt slitet rum kan bli. Heltäckningsmatta. Badrummet var i behov av renovering och kanske inte skinande rent badkar. Madrasser som det brukar var i Ungern, dvs stenhård. Frukosten var inte lyxig, men det som behövdes fanns där så som bröd, youghert, ägg och kaffe.
