• Still raining when woke up. Another nice breakfast. Confirmed the cheese served at Owl's Castle was curds and paprika, as they had that at breakfast.

• Headed back to Betthanny Ter and caught the 9:00 train to Szentendre. Raining pretty much all the way, but mostly …

• Intended to sleep-in to 6:45, but Betty stretching out ~6:15 got us going (sort of)

• They had asked 6-euros for breakfast when we checked in; we went for it, which turned out to be a good choice as it was a nice buffet. Only disconcerting thing was several instances …

Timisoara -> Budapest -> Bratislava

... afraid to do anything but wash them by hand. Since I don’t have to pay for each load here, I can wash them separately and hopefully get a bunch of the dye out so I can wash them with the rest of my clothes on the camino.

Before doing any of that though I headed to the store. There’s a big Tesco (name of a store) right across the street from the hostel that the receptionist told me about. I went in there and wow! It’s the ...

Side note about meeting people. I met a really interesting guy yesterday on the bunk below me. He's an airline pilot from Malaysia flying for Malaysia airlines. He flies the A330 (a widebody). He's 25. Got to talking about flying and how he got into it, ...

    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.

    Superb Location!


    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.

    Good hotel


    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.

    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!

    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.
