              Very kind staff, clean room and bathroom, not far from Keleti railway station, good access to the center, very good restaurant few meters from the hotel.

              Very big pillows.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Room is clean and breakfast is good.

              It is quite far away from the metro and train station. The area is quiet at night. Single lady traveler has to beware of it.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              the staff was very helpful. the room, though not big, was clean and well equipped. the location is perfect for travelling by trai, as the hotel is a 10 minutes walk from the main trainstation (keleti).

            • Single
              8.8

              i had already been in Star hotel and decided to come back coz the service is very good,the staff friendly and helpfull,the room spacious and clean.i strongly reccoment this hotel,good price for the quality

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              The layout of the room, lots of space, nice service people at the desk.

              The area was really shady. The people around the area seemed thuggish. The bathroom and shower did not seem very clean. There was an odd smell in the room and it also smelled like someone had smoked there.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              I loved the friendly staff,the cleanliness of the room was excellent so as the variety at the breakfast buffet,.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              quite far from main train station about 1 km and along the way to hotel is very dark at the night time.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Good location, excellent breakfast, free wi-fi in one part of the hotel. Value for money!

              Our friends got normal double bedroom. But, we got very small room, with broken shower and toilet seat!

            • Couple
              5.0

              - Good price - convenient location if travelling by train (not far from the main train station)

              - Extremely small room (is this a double room?) - poor equipment in the bathroom (no hand soap in reach, broken toilet seat, shower pressure extremely low) - not so flexible staff (asked for check-out at 12 instead of 11, and rejected as impossible) - poor breakfast choices (including - warm yoghurt?); they start to remove food (and the choice is not huge anyway) already 30 minutes before closing

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Persons at the reception extremely kind and competent

            • Couple
              7.0

              Good staff...really good brekfast for a 3 star hotel. Very accessible from Keleti.

              Cleaning was ok, but not so good,they need to improve abit on that

            • Single
              8.8

              Nothing fancy, but hotel provides value for money. The hotel staff was helpful. I requested the guy at reception to call Airport Shuttle for me and he did! The reception is open 24 hours: I had early flight to catch and checked out around 3am. Bearing in mind that it is only a three star hotel with mixed review, I was not expecting any-one to be there. Overall, it was a good experience.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              I liked breakfast, the room was very warm, I liked the price.

              The room was small, less space than you would expect.
