Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Erzsebet City Center Budapest
Historic hotel in a fantastic location
This hotel was located in the centre of downtown Pest two streets away from the River Danube. The origins of the hotel dated from the 18h century and this was reflected in the decor. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the customer service was second to none.
Pleasant staff was typical of the Hungarian people generally.
Rooms were spacious and maid service was daily.
We purchased a Budapest Card for 48 hours which gave unlimited travel on all forms of public transport - this prooved to be invaluable.
The location of the hotel allowed us easy access to all forms of public transport and it was also easy to walk to many of the major sites.
We would recommend the Ocean restaurant for a special evening. It is relatively expensive (approx. £50.00 for two with a bottle of Hungarian Rose)but the quality and presentation of food was fantastic. The price of a beer in the hotel was approx £4-5 a pint, however, there was a great little bar about a 100 yards up the road where the beer was half the price.
I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Budapest, the location alone was superb but the quality of service and cleanliness was an added bonus.
Previous trip advisors' reviews were spot-on for this hotel... an average hotel if a little tired but the location would have been hard to beat! Budapest is a lovely city, though please be warned that the place CLOSES on a Sunday, so if you are there for the weekend, please do your shopping on the Saturday!!! The rooms are small but clean. We were located at the back so had no problems with the noise that so many other reviews mention. Staff are competent, speak good English and are pleasant although the locals as a whole are not the friendliest of people but that went for the whole city... The safety deposit box is free though it is located behind reception and requires a member of staff to be with you when going in and out, great for security but bad for getting into and out for your currency, camera, mobile phone, so convenience wasn't so good. Breakfast was good enough, although if I'm being really fussy the range was not wide. Also the breakfast room always seemed to be busy! For a no-frills, clean hotel with a fantastic location, I'd recommend this hotel highly.
Very Nice Hotel - Very Noisy Street
This is a nice hotel with a great location. Staff was very helpful and spoke English very well. The rooms are a little small (typical for Europe) and the street very noisy all night long - keep the window closed! The Central Cafe just around the corner is a very good place to eat.
Really good location, the rooms were clean and bigger than I expected. Nice shower! Breakfast was good, and the location is fantastic. If you are going to Budapest for the spa baths then go to Szechenyi in the park. They are amazing.
Good Location with a bit of personality
Quite a big hotel, but not one of the anonymous chain types that are all over the world. It was pretty basic but clean and pefectly satisfactory for our needs. Reception staff friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English. Rooms at the front of the hotel might suffer with noise from the traffic outside, but it's smack in the centre of a big capital city so what else can you expect? Our room was not huge, but big enough, had a good, powerful shower and the air conditioning was very welcome. Breakfast was the usual continental affair with a few traditional hungarian additions.
This hotel has an excellent location not only for getting around and about Pest but also walking over to Buda. Pest is flat, so easy walking distance to lots of cafes/bars, restaurants and to the main shopping area.
There are more luxurious hotels in Budapest and if that's what you want, pay the extra and give this a miss. We wanted somewhere relatively cheap with a central location and this is exactly what we got. Can't complain at all really.
Fantastic Location but.....
The location of this hotel couldn't be faulted. My husband & I were able to walk everywhere like parliament, the basilica, even across to Buda. The hotel is a hundred metres from a bus stop & couple of minutes walk to a metro station for the less energetic!
The rooms were comfortable & clean but small & with only a shower no bath. The beer cellar it advertises on the web is closed & they have no restaurant which we were susprised by as we had booked a package deal on their website which included 2 evening meals!! We had to take these at the nearby astoria.
Our package had also included airport transfers but after waiting at the airport for nearly an hour & getting the information desk to ring the hotel 3 times we had to get the airport minibus although the hotel did refund us immediately when we got there.
ALL IN ALL I'D RECOMMEND IT BUT DON'T BOTHER WITH A PACKAGE DEAL
It's ok, but not great
Not the greatest place, but it's OK. My friend and I were there over New Year's 2005. The rooms are clean, but nothing fancy. The lobby is very dated and seems to always be full of chain smokers. It is in a great, central location - lots of restaurants nearby. No one at the hotel was particularly helpful or friendly, but that seemed to go for most of Budapest. I'd for sure go back to Budapest, but wouldn't stay there again.
Can be NOISY at the front!!
We stayed in this hotel in October and found it clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location is first class.
We stayed in a room overlooking the street and found it very noisy (traffic) throughout the night and early morning. Best try to get a room NOT overlooking the street.
Breakfast room is very crowded even at non-peak times but the breakfast is good.
Free internet access in a little booth off reception.
Excellent location in Pest !
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Erzsebet for 5 nights in October 2004. Erzsebet is a middle class international hotel : the rooms are rather small, but very clean and equipped with comfortable beds. A good buffet breakfast is included in the rate.
The main advantage of this hotel is its excellent location on the Pest side of Budapest, very close to the Vaci Street. Shops, restaurants, metro and a lot of points of interest are within a walking distance from the hotel. Just round the corner, don't miss 2 very good restaurants : "Central" and "Karpatia" !
Great location average hotel
Perfectly adequate hotel, very good central location, fair buffet breakfast and helpful staff and rooms clean and spacious. the only problem was that the beerkeller advertised in the brochures was closed (july 2004) which was the main reason we booked to stay here. There is another bar but it was very small and closed very early.

... are apparently ruins along the Danube RIver, but I don't suspect that this road was that old.
Not much further Sam found a deep hole to the side of the trail, which turned out to be an old mine that was actually marked on the map so we knew we would soon be out of the woods. We dropped down a steep section of trail past the water tank and there we were amidst the tour buses and cars. Attila and Iza walked up to a small wooden building right at ...
... after liberation from the Turks but was rebuilt with a Baroque interior. It was reconstructed again in 1896 in Neo-Gothic style, just in time for the 1,000 year celebrations. During WWII, it was severely damaged again, with rebuilding being completed on 1970. Now it's been completely restored again, with incredible results. Almost every inch of wall space is covered with ornamentation, some of it serving as optical illusions making the wall look like ...

We’d walked past this little restaurant on many an occasion. We tentatively peer through the window. It looks full. There is one table empty. Hurrah! We’re in, taking the last unreserved table.

Tried to tour the Parliament building this morning but tickets were sold out. Balls! Oh well. Took a walk to the middle of the Margit Bridge and made a detour to the island. Strolled around for a bit and then walked the other half of the bridge over to Buda.
Dropped in at one of the bath houses and got a massage. A little weird because it wasn't your incense and New Age music kind of massage. This one felt like it was in a high school locker room. ...
... When we met with our tour guide (I believe her name was pronounced Elshi?) she took us to the central park, to start off, where many young kids meet up at night to go and party. We then rode down a central street and passed the opera house, which I loved. We ended up near the war memorial and the art museums, where it was apparently "Soldier Day" or something, so there were many armed forced walking around and flowers everywhere. It did prevent us from going ...
