      Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Hungaria Budapest

      Worth the money


      On the positive side the Hotel was clean, conveniently located to public transport and the rooms were a fair size. On the negative side the staff were cold and unhelpfull, the food was awfull and the area noisy and a bit seedy. However for the price I paid it was good value.

      A great stay


      After reading mixed reviews I was a little wary of my forthcoming stay, I need not have worried A large clean on-suite room Double bed (single quilt a bit odd but adequate for a single guy) The restaurant was totaly self serve and plenty of good food available for breakfast and the lobby bar reasonable and again friendly. Yes the hotel was out of the centre but with a Budapest card ( 16 for three days did it not matter that a short walk to the left for a metro, or a little bit further to the right for the tram stop. Budapest is a great friendly place and after two short trips I can hardly wait for my next stay in March, In a different hotel due to a good deal I found on the web. Please find out for yourselves and do not worry what other people think it is your holiday enjoy.

      Not bad at all


      Stayed here in Jan 2005. Was a bit wary after reading some of the reviews, but had an open mind. Was impressed on entering the hotel. Corteous greeting and helpful. Room was fine and clean. Giant bed. Sheets changed daily. Reception and concierge were very helpful with directions etc and anything we required. ordered more pillows and they were there in 10 mins. Do people expect too much. I could not fault the hotel.

      I didnt find any of the other problems people had. The smell in the corridors was the same smell you get in the malev planes. Its obviously a cleaning agent and not disagreeable. Stop complaining. Its a damn good hotel and catch a 7, 7a or 78 bus and ur in the heart of Budapest in 5 minutes. They run every two minutes. I would recommend this hotel, dont mind the begrudgers. Dont whatever you do, use Taxis. Complete rip off. Get a Budapest pass in the Hotel for '''''''''12.50 for two days and use the underground trams and buses as often as you want. Airport minibus for 3,600 florints is the best value and prompt and reliable. Use 16 bus to palace and number 2 tram for sights

      Really Good


      We returned on the 9th jan from this hotel. We had a great time there, it was very clean, you got a good choice of food at breakfast, and we found the staff to be friendly and helpful, we will be returning again in the near future.

      A grand time in the Grand Hotel Hungaria


      We had mixed feelings about staying here because of the poor reviews, but we struggled finding accommodation in Budapest at New Year, so went ahead and booked it anyway. It was a pleasant surprise to find courteous staff, swift check-in and a perfectly nice, clean, comfortable room with fridge and tv. The price was extremely reasonable, too. We paid $352 US for 3 of us for 4 nights. The breakfasts were excellent, with a huge choice of hot and cold dishes.

      As for location, the Keleti Station was just across the road, providing cheap public transport. The underground is easy to use. There were lots of affordable bars and eating places within walking distance of the hotel, so we didn't need to venture far in the evenings. The language didn't seem to be a problem anywhere. Everyone was very patient and nice.

      It's a shame some people who put reviews on here are so negative, complaining about decor and the facial expressions of hotel staff!

      I think if you've paid a reasonable price and you get what was advertised, then you should be happy. It's no good complaining about the location afterwards. You should do a bit more research beforehand and if you need to be in the middle of the sightseeing bit of the city, book a hotel there.

      Just got back


      Have just got back from spending four nights at the Grand Hungarian and have really enjoyed it. The Hotel is located near to the Eastern railway station which provides excellent public transport to anywhere in the city. The rooms were warm and clean with a maid service every day. The only down side was that there is no tea/coffee facilities provided. Breakfast was included in the package and was varied and of a high standard. here is traffic noise if you are located at the front of the hotel, but I am sure they would move you to a quiter one if requested.

      This hotel is really Terrible


      This hotel smells of decaying bodies. The interior and exterior are really out of date and well worn. There were cigarette holes and marks on the carpet in a non smoking room. Staff do not smile and are very cold. Food was aweful. The bar had lot of drunken yobs at the bar. This hotel is used for stag and hen parties too! They cant cook a decent breakfast. They gave me and my wife a twin-room instead of a double. There is a busy highway near by and also this is far from the city centre will cost you alot in cab fares. I went for a massage and the bench collapsed whilst I was lying on it having a massage. This one really BAD hotel!

      Too far from the action


      My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in August 2004. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was acceptable but cold. Although we enjoyed our stay, the location is not convenient for most of Budapest's sights. We took so many cabs that we should have just stayed at a higher priced, better located hotel.

      Great hotel shame about the location


      We had a lovely suite in the hotel and the staff were helpful and friendly, it is on a busy junction where traffic roafrs past day and night. Close to public transport and the railway station

I turned on a movie in the background and started the packing process. Although I had a bit of time in the morning before my flight, I was anxious to be prepared and ready to go. The day left me exhausted and feeling a bit under the weather yet again. I slept in the next morning and decided to venture out for a ...

      Venice is tiny.

      It is also incredibly beautiful and I really enjoyed the novelty of having the water everywhere. After snapping enough photos to prove I really got there I got back on the road, this time to Trieste.

      I loved Trieste, definitely a highlight of the trip. The campground I stayed at was run by the friendliest guy I've meet in ages - Eduardo. I stayed a couple ...

We had a bus tour to all the main tourist spots and as we are staying on the pest side it was our first time to the Buda side of Budapest. Wonderful old palaces, churches and interesting seeing the signs of the more recent history of German invasion in WWII and communism. Beautiful views down over the Danube from the Buda side. At the end of the tour we were dropped off at the central ...
