      staff were nice,naturaly kind, friendly and proffesional. Breakfast was grate. No fus, enough space, clean dining room.

    • Couple
      10.0

      The hotel was excellent, very close to the Keleti station, which was very important to us since we've arrived at 5 AM to Budapest. The staff was so kind to let us check in at 10 AM on the first day, and even though check out time is 11 AM, we were allowed to stay until 2 PM on the last day. The people at the reception desk were also very very helpful with info about Budapest and everything else.

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      I liked the buzzing foyer and the helpful desk staff. I liked the friendly and unintrusive cleaners. I liked the central location although it was a bit of a scruffy area.

      I disliked the pandemonium at breakfast time although I admit that it was partly my fault for chosing the peak 0830 time. Some of my friends weere so unimpresswed that they abandoned their prepaid breakfasts for something in the much quieter McDonnalds down the road.

    • Family with children

      The hotel is very close to the train station, which is good for train travelers. Hotel staff was nice. We booked a double room. When the hotel staff noticed that we had a four year old son with us, he gave us a suite. The room was clean and nice. Breakfast was excellent!

      Not many restaurants near the hotel. The area doesn't seem to be very good.

    • Family with children

      For the price that we paid it was super!

    • Family with children
      8.2

      For those who are travelling by train, the location of the hotel is excellent. Its just a stone away from the main train station and it takes about 10 mins to reach the city centre.

    • Group of friends
      7.4

      Very pleasant stay. had a room on the front of the hotel with a balcony. breakfast fast was also ok.

      only two Internet PC's where available, which did not always work. you have to pay for the sauna.

    • Group of friends
      4.6

      Breakfast and near public transportation.

      The sign of the hotel says Grand Hotel and Best Western sign is so small that we missed it and have to ask several people where it was. The Hotel needs a lot of improvement in the rooms; new carpeting, towels, good ventilation to get rid of smell.

    • Single

      Near the Station and in fron of the bus tour stop

    • Group of friends
      6.6

      This Hotel îs Good if you have a train to catch this way you can sleep in. For it's $$$.$$ and size of the rooms in Europe it's fair. But not cheap.

      Parking for it's guests should be free.

    • Family with children
      6.2

      The room was very comfortable, nice, clean and they cleaned it every day. Wi-Fi internet was very well in the room and there was no problem.

      The hotel doesn't give the full information about hotel policy. Particularly, the hotel takes deposit which is, though, given back but you are not imformed about it before. Besides, they blocked my credit card without informing me and all time I was in the hotel I couldn't use my credit card. They took cash too. There are always many people in the lobby and it's always noisy. It was a bit noisy in the room too though there were double windows.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The staff are excellent. Room service and the cleaning staff were very good. Reception and porter staff are very helpful and very friendly. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was spacious, very comfortable and excellent value for money! There is also a good buffet breakfast which gets regularly replaced.

      The air con in the room was very poor and did not work correctly. Our friends staying in another room also complained of the poor air con system. The bar area is poorly ventilated so it is not a comfortable place to sit and enjoy and drink. The female staff member there was also not as helpful or freindly as the other colleagues - sorry!

    • Older travelers
      4.6

      Stayed twice in 12 days due to circumstances. Tea/coffee had to be asked for instead of being in the room. A/c in room 620 did not work. Twin beds very narrow. Kettle had to be placed on the floor to plug in. Sheets on the beds did not fit so came away when turning over. Disappointed considering it's a 4* hotel. Staff dealing with the drop off zone were impatient and harsh at times.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      The breakfast is good with plenty of choice from a varied choice. The staff on reception, restaurant and bar were very approachable, helpfully and very kind...

      The hotel is a bit dated with basic facilities even in junior suites. The price deal we got though balances out against the quality of average facilities. The bathroom and room were clean but the bathroom was very spare and basic
