The Spa was relaxing The room was old and worn down. I had better expectations.
Excellent staff and services. Very quiet and confortable place. Great value for money spent. Perfect location. Beautiful thermal baths included in the price of the room. Maybe the moquette on the floor in the room
all was perfect....all was ok....staff and rooms too!!! i tell to all customers that gellert is shure the best hotel in budapest....no chance for others hotel to compare with gellert position too!!!! dr agnelli nothing.
The interior common areas are beautiful. The room I eventually received was great. The breackfast buffet was the best of 10 hotels in 3 countries. The "single" room was a hot, noisy shoebox, not merely a "room with one bed". An absence of water in the shower forced a hasty, gracious upgrade to a lovely room. The baths were dilapidated and disappointing- website photos out-dated. Thermal bath not available to females- upgrade in progress, I think (hope)..
Tram lines right next to it, friendly staff, beautiful building - inside and out, amazing breakfast buffet, very nice restaurant and bar attached to it, comfortable beds, easy access to Gellert Baths. The carpet and minibar in my room looked a little outdated, but everything was clean and comfortable so that was just a minor issue.
access to the spa
location and facilties no
Staff was attentive and pleasant. Breakfast is amazing, huge and many choices which is included in room price. Price was very reasonable. Access to the bath house is so convenient and guests get discounted entry, it's wonderful to walk down in your big terry cloth robe and enjoy the bath house, towels are also provided by the hotel, added perk. Tram is directly across the street and allows access to all directions in the city. Views are stunning of the bridges and river. We were there in November so not crowded at all. The furniture in the rooms is shabby chic, looks like the original furniture from 1918. Despite the furniture it's comfortable and the linens are clean and good quality. They could use new pillows, they are down but very flat.
Decent size room; location near River; restaurant on the ground floor; public transit options Very old with signs of deferred maintenance. E.g. The upstairs bathroom leaked and made a mess of our bathroom. The good thing is the hotel staff came right away and fixed the problem. The location of hotel is far from the major tourist attractions as it is on the Buda side of the river. The SPA IS A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT: it reminds me an old hotel swimming pool with freezing cold water.
english breakfast, clean bathroom, large portions in restaurants, hotel staff speaks english and german, great view (danube, hills) room needs refurbishment, hotel price is too expensive
The hotel is old but clean and well maintained. Our rooms were large and the bathrooms huge by European standards. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast is great and access is very easy by metro and bus, both right across the street from the hotel. The thermal spas were fantastic and although busy not crowded. Use the spas on the side of the swimming pool, it attracts less visitors. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Will certainly return.
excellent breakfast the Internet access is expensive and in fact does not work as the company that supplies it did not solve the problem that when (as very often happens) the connection goes down there is need to call the company for a logout before you can login again
Value for money and secured parking area. No.
the large looby where you can organize meetings, nice neighbounhood room and bathroom definetly not 4 stars, the walls were so poor acoustic that you could hear the other guests, 8% commission on exchange rate, small selection at breakfast
Pleasant, convenient location for my business meeting, spacious rooms, excellent massage
the noise of the air-conditioner, the dropping tab, the parking on the roof: difficult to reach and expensive
ıf you have a car it is not far from the citycenter, if you don't it's problem. no shampoo and no soap.
Clean, friendly staff , goog breakfast
Friendliness and helpfulness of staff, range and quality of breakfast, location of hotel and convenience of transport links. Noisy guests on bus tours leaving early in the morning - more consideration of others would be good.
Clean hotel. pleasant staff
clean, easy too find, good food and restaurants, a lot of facilities, but the most, there is fantastic stuff !
Lunch was very good conference rooms well organised Breakfast buffet was poor, hot food was cold and there was little fresh fruit etc. Rooms are rather tired looking, heating is outdated and lacks control in the room.
The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, the garage is safe for the car because it can be accessed only with your room card. The location of the hotel is far away from the city center. Otherwise is a good hotel.
the staff was great, very helpful (we needed a dentist on Sunday and they helped us find one), we also had a small problem with our room and they immediately changed it for us.The location is great (2 buss stops from the center) and a very good price/quality choice.
It was clean and close to city center. Although the hotel is rather small they have an underground parking. We had a room for three but the room was an improvisation, was a two bed room in which they added an extra portable bed. It wasn't uncomfortable though. The bathtub seemed like it had it's fair share of usage.
The location was perfect for what we wanted and good value for money.Staff very nice and spoke perfect English. Booked a double room and was given a twin - this should've been cheaper but they wouldn't budge on it when challenged. Room did have ants in but we were moved straight away when pointed this out.
1. they do not clean the toilet as expected. 2. the cofee at the bar - was poor.
Clean, comfortable rooms. Well organised and efficiently run. Double beds were uncomfortable; 2 singles with frames pushed together. Hotel bar shut at 11. Hotel was a little far out and public transport was essential.
hospitality, cleanness, best price-comfort ratio ever..friendly stuff great place for car travelers and others to visit the city.. to supply free wireless internet...
i'd like the fact that it was in a very good location and the price was ok for the confort of the room. it has a garage under the hotel and i like that( 10 euro / night) nothing, but i've been there only for a night
Special Price offer that I received via booking.com as well as good location of the hotel. Good breakfast. Nice staff. Internet is not for free in the room. Wi-Fi works for free at the reception area only on the hotel's computer.
We liked the location not so far from the Budapest city centre and helpful staff. Actually the hotel was good value for money, nevertheless the advertisement stated that it is a 4-star hotel and it is definitely not. We did not like the plastic cover under the bed sheets and the beds were not comfortable, nevertheless we stayed only two nights and did not spend much time in the hotel.
Very nice rooms Massage service was not available
Very kind and nice staff, good and tasty breakfast. Very noisy guests, thin walls. Would not consider as 4 stars hotels.
In my opinion this hotel should have been qualified for 3 stars not 4.
spacious room It's a 2 star Hotel, old rooms, very poor decorated, close to nothing. I paid for newly refurbished room on 1st or 2nd floor but got ground floor, very old, dirty walls, unsafe, couldn't close my eyes. Overpriced. Bathroom amenities - only 1 liquid soap for everything and a shower cap.
Wellness centre Old construction - old room; WIFI did not work.
Clean rooms, garden view, on the highway,
When staying in Hotel Rubin I really liked very nice and helpful stuff, their willingnes for me to feel comfortable and satisfied. Also buffet breakfast was nice. I didn't like the noise in the room (heard from the room next door). When I changed my room, this problem was solved. The ambient I didn't like-it looks very cheap.
The airconditioning in the room did not work and the standard of the food in the restaurant was not great.
The hospitality of the staff. The rooms are very nice. The view from the top floor is amazing.
Rooms were clean and fairly comfortable, breakfast was fine, staff were very friendly and helpful.
Close with the center
Secure, free parking. Very helpful English speaking staff. Good breakfast. Close proximity and ease of transportation. Wireless internet. Allowed us to park and check in early.
Really good value for money hotel . Excellent staff were there to help with any queries we had . Rooms were spotless with fresh towels provided daily .Location of hotel is also very just 3 stops on the bus to city centre . i would recommend this hotel and hope to stay again next time i am in Budapest
very friendly staff
great location, great staff not too clean, the bed was too small and so were the blankets (as if they were for children)
Helpfull staff. It is good hotel for this kind of money. It is not true about walking distance to the Spa Gillert. It is far and you have to take taxi, from bus stop it is still too far.
very friendly staff, excellent parking facility, good breakfast mattress/pillows need replacement
Good location: in quiet and nice district Buda I, 15min walk from Citadel, public transpotr stops (bus,tram) and good restaurant are close to hotel. Affble, frendly personal on reception. This hotel is good for unpretentious people. The equipment in shower are old fashion. Needs to be improvement, but works. The mattresses in our room needs to substitut. They are old and rigid.
the air, the view, the people, the big bathroom no
Nice rooms, pansion has its own parking, Wifi works well. Rather poor breakfast.
Large room, parking place included in reservation price leaking sewage water was made difficult, poor breakfast - only basics
Nice and big room, comfortable Bed, nice garden and view Poor breakfast. The water in the bathtub don't drain fast enogh, that's a bit anoying when taking shower.
The stay was a very pleasant one. The room we stayed in was very spacious (in comparison with other hotels I’ve stayed in worldwide) with a large bathroom. What I liked the most was the solid wood furniture they have throughout the hotel, provides a pleasant environment, also they have a lovely interior garden and an interior parking space. And the most important thing that I liked was the friendliness and the helpfulness of the staff there. When we were there Ms. Ecaterina greeted us and helped us with what we wanted to accomplish in Budapest.
Small cozy hotel in quiet part of town. Great rooms, great service. If you can to choose, take a room on the attic - it is excellent! Great value for money!
Room was really nice and cosy, and the area is beautiful. Breakfast was really good!! It´s a bit far away from the center, but it´s easy to reach by bus. Reception lady don´t speak english too much...
Perfect location and nicely decorated. Cozy rooms, very calm street and in gthe same time pretty close to main roads.
It would be good if you offer supper. The hotel staff does not speak any foreign languages (English or German).
free parking on the street, close to centre limited breakfast; air condition doesn´t working, noisy room
I liked pretty much everything, room, food, service. Well a pleasant lady told me that I can pay by a credit card or cash and cash amount would be lower. I loved this since this is normal in Canada where I lived for 13 years and people can usually save up to GST & PST which is around 15% but she didn't know what price we reserved our hotel for (€60/night for 2 nights) and she said that it would be €60 cash and there was obviously no discount there.
Friendly easy to move around safe no
The pension is in a relatively quiet neighborhood, with two trams you can get easily to downtown Pest. Free parking available. Keep in mind that rooms are smallish, with no TV.
family pension, lovely, very clean, spacious room, excellent service, quaiet place, rather far from the centrum
Ideal Location for Trams which link to Metro and Rail. In a quietish area with access to local shops and restaurants. Somewhat tired and attic room where we stayed quite spartan. Breakfast ok for a few days but would become monotonous after a while. Would recommend but only for a short visit.
The hotel is clean, nice, a bit old-fashioned. However, it's value for money experience. The thing that I did not like much - was a remote location from all the city sites, it took me a train and a metro ride to get anywhere.
Price, position. No aircondition. Rooms above crowded street.
That our room was on the silencest side, parking garage Poor breakfast without any fruits, unclened room with the spider nest in the furniture, dirty carpet, expencive payment for parking in hotel garage. Hotels with attitude to guests cant charge the parking for their oun guests!
The location of the hotel and its price The rooms should be better equipped (beds, bed sheets, TV sets)
very noisy; you can hear the water running from the toilets in all neighboring rooms; a lot of noise starting 7 AM from the construction site next to the hotel
Value for money,buffet breakfast included Cleanliness of my room (spiders in corners),broken shower,parking inside hotel expensive
The top floor rooms were under the roof so they were very very hot- and there was no air-conditioning in the hotel. Also there has been a kind of road working going on on top of another construction just next door so the noise was terrible and it can be heard from each and every corner of the hotel. During my stay I have discovere many similar hotels with the same rates but quiter and more concerning towards the customer needs
Nothing special. I was expecting more. Yes: the noise of the street and from the building in construction near the hotel was almost permanently. The hotel has no arooms with AC and it was very hot, even for end of may.
Hotel is clean, friendly, helpfull, flexible and honest personnel
The room was big and bathroom was clean There were soo many stairs to get to our room. The room was unbearably hot. No ac fine but no fan-tortuous. Uncomfortable to sleep like that.
The area is quite nice, there is a very nice and friendly bar next to the hotel and the waiting staff are very friendly. Bus and local travel right outside so you can bus into the city centre or take a walk down to the city which takes about 20mins. Nothing great or special about the hotel except it was cheap and ideal for young people. The hotel is very poor in many areas. There is no aircon for start, it's like sleeping in a sauna. The rooms are located so far from the main reception it gets tiring walking 5 mins to get to room. There is no safe, tv or forge in your room, so can't even secure your personals or out cans or bottles on the fridge, it's very poor standards. They don't change the towels often enough andyou have to keep asking. The WiFi internet virtuallyis useless it does not reach to the room and it's very poor. The food is terrible and even the staff there drink in the bar nextdoor, which explains it all. The staff were not very pleasant and always seemed to be unfriendly. There is building work going on so it's very dusty at times. Can be noisy when students or travellers have late night sessions. I would never come back to this hotel ever, and u would never recommend it to anyone, it's very impractical. 2/10 and that's being kind.
excelent service and excelent information desk maybe it was kinda noisy
The location and the price are acceptable. The breakfast is variably, sometimes good, sometimes poor.It`s strange combination of comfortable Bara and less comfortable Bara Junior. The reception maybe should have the city ticket for sale, because Hotel is outside the shopping zone, but the bus station is very near the hotel.
Even though it's a bit far from the city centre, there's a tram stop just in front of the hotel and the tram service is very good. The use of the SPA is not included in the price of the hotel. Also, it's a bit far from the city centre (although it's very easy to reach by tram).
I personally liked the hotel and the restaurant, it is a comfortable hotel, very close to the tram and easy to get to the downtown area. It is one of the quietest hotel I have ever stayed, even the airconditioning system is very quiet. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. It would be nice to have instructions on phone use (like what number to call the front desk - it happened to be a long number, not zero) left in the room.
The room was clean. The hotel was near the trams stationa and there was an easy access to city center. Staffs were also friendly.The breakfast was ok.
Price for the room is the best what this hotel have to offer. Brekfeast is ok. Hotel have parking in front of the hotel and it`s free of charge. We booked double rome an they give us twin.In hotel was school excursion and they were very noisy whole night. Bathroam is old and dirty. Position on the map is wrong, hotel is about 2km further from the city.
The location near the railway station and not far from city, the comfortable, clean room and the not always professional but very helpful and kind stuff. My room was ready at midday. Unfortunately in the morning I have met a Polnish group. They have eaten nearly everything - it was few left. I could have coffee and some cereals.
Clean, comfortable room and reasonable breakfast though the building looks less attrective from the outside. a free ticket for the annexed (excellent) sauna/ fitness area is was greatly appreciated Ok when making a reservation through internet, otherwise too expensive
Good positions for visit Budapest.Close to tram station.Quiet place and safe parking. Abundant breakfast.
Location was good and it was easy to take the tram to the center The bathroom was not clean
Good reception, nice staff. Good service in general. A little bit far from the center.
There is no restarant and bar in the hotel and near
Yes it was a nice experieces. The room it was very big but not so nice and not so clean.
Quiet location, not very far from the city centre. Poor range of wines available in the lobby bar.
Internet access Breakfeast. I wish a big variety on this breakfeast
Free internet access. Good restaurant Restaurant with smokers
Free wireless of decent quality, good airport shuttle services My bed was broken! Plus misleading information on booking.com (there actually is no sauna, massage or even restaurant, except for a very frugal breakfast). Also I saw no currency exchange facility even though I needed it.
the breakfast... lots of food. it is close to a big shopping mall. the smell in the room! it was smelling like wet concrete... like it was always wet... in the bathroom there was no way for the water to go if you use the shower and the water spills out...
Hotel was clean and staff excellent. I asked to change the room ( to non smoking ) and staff gave me new one in a minute. I recommend this hotel. Just make sure, if you are not smoker, to get non smoking room. Anyway, even if you will get the smoking room, the smell isn't so hard.
I really felt comfortable no
Affordable, good breakfast, very easy to reach if you don't miss the highway entry, comfortable enough for how much you pay. Bed sheets could be a little whiter. A second chair in a double room would be greatly appreciated.
breakfast, friendly staff beds were creaky. Our room was close to the roadside, so it was a bit noisy, It was easy to hear people talking in the corridor
Simply but nice. Good breakfast.
Great price/quality, spacious rooms, decent breakfast
Cleanless, rooms, meal, near where I whent
is was clean in the rooms. i didn't like the breakfast.
Advertised airport shuttle, but you pay 30 Euros each way for it, but the driver/desk clerk was worth it, he went out of his way to settle me in & helped w/the luggage. Breakfast buffet was great. Nice quiet area, yet bus accessible to all. Lovely Patio! The airport shuttle advertised, should not have been included in the description, it is the reason I chose it. Surprised me having to pay for it. That should be removed as one can hire a taxi. Yet, I would stay there again, overall, I loved it!
Great opportunity of hanging out with people from different places of the world The way you charged me for my few phone calls plus your room-buffet are way too expensive!
The location is very good, the tram stops in front of the hotel, so you can easily reach the city. The staff at the restaurant were making comments on guests right in front of them.
I did not have time for tour through the hotel, I only slept there. The food was quite good. Generaly hotel is equal to price. I recived very dirty room, I had to change room to other ;/.
Internet was not applicable in Rooms.
It is very close to the public transportation network. The room is quite small. So it is the bathroom.
The staff was kind and helpful, the tram station is in front of the hotel and you can get in any part of downtown Budapest in less than 20 minutes. You can buy tram tickets at the reception. There is free parking available and it's really quiet at night. I really don't understand how they got 3 stars, it's more like a hostel actually. The room looked old and the moquette on the floor was very dirty, so was the curtain from the shower.
A little bit old fashioned,but clean,every day a new towels,fridge in he room polite staff.Reasonable price for value
From hotel I could reach everything easily and quickly by good public transport connection. The hotel has nice staff, and the cuisine of restaurant was very good.
Everything except the bed The lack of a mattres. I had to use the doublefolded blanket as a mattres and the bathtowel as a blanket
Kalmar is more of a guest house, than a Hotel. It is run by Eszter and her family who also live at the property, a apartment house with several extra room which they rent on daily, weekly or monthly basis. The breakfast is served at Eszter dine room with gorgeous fine china from the old times. Location is very good, in a very safe neighborhood and off the beaten track but just 3 minutes walk from the the south bridge of Szabadsag (the green one) and the fabulous thermal baths at iconic Hotel Gellert (do not miss it)
We loved the beautiful, peaceful location! Nice neighborhood to walk in and close to town for sightseeing, in addition to easy transportation access. We will definitely stay there again. A minor point, but the shower temperature was a little hard to regulate.
Rooms are clean and large, the location is good. Beautiful building and garden. Small breakfast, for example no juice or water, only coffee (1 cup). Wifi unreliable/nonexistant, at least when I was there. The bill was higher (slightly, but still... kind of unprofessional) than stipulated on booking.com.
Place and wiev from the apartment and nearest territory were nice. Odor and and replication of the breakfast menu.
Free wifi internet. The kitchenette. The room was very large.
Really spacious, very clean, very friendly, helpful staff and excellent value for money The guest house is in a very quiet location so there wasn't much to do in the evenings in the immediate vicinity.
The reception lady is very kind, even though reception works from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm everyday. The sir of the neighbored hostel, who transferred the key of Professor's Guest House to us in the night when we arrived, is very very kind and helpful. He is one of our positive impressions of the city. Taxi management in the Budapest Airport helps guests avoid being cheated. The hotel is very close to The taxi driver from the hotel to the Budapest Airport attempted to obtains money through fraud. He drove us first to a false terminal, then asked for additional 5 Euro to the right one. We denied his cheat and tried to call for Taxi Management, the diver yielded and escaped quickly.
Convenient location; good value for money.
Spacious Shower was not great, some (temporary) problems with the internet
very informal ambient easy communication tv has only four channels (local)
Double room is spacious, nice and clean and with ref. The TV has only one local channel brodcasting the local language. It will be more attractive if it has an internationa satellite, defintely I'll stay again if TV sattelite is connected.
Relatively cheap, basic room, rather close to the center, good public transportation I was there during the 42 degrees heatwave in July 2007: the room was without airco, therefore really hot
Situated in quiet,safe and civilized XII. district, helpful staff, decent breakfast,clean bathroom, beautiful view of Buda hills from room 122,private parking with video surveillance, bus station near hotel, Southern Station 20 min walk on Alkotas street or with 61 tram in 5 min, there is a plaza Mom Park in proximity with good restaurants,shops,currency exchange( not advisable to exchange at hotel) and Matchpoint supermaket. Asked for non smoking room and got a smoking one,TV was just for decoration beacause it didn't work, noticed some stains on the bedsheets but besides that I had a pleasant stay, good value for money, definitely recommend.
nice breakfast, good tratement of the personal, good location the tv was not working properly, only 5 channels, to much distance from front desk to room
The breakfest was really good, big choice and the food was tasty
Hello my rest was very good.Reseption was very perfect. Rooms was clean and bathrooms.This hotel was near the center. Parking was comfort.Internet was quickly and free of charge.We was happy for this rest.
The location is fine, and is only a few minutes away from the real centre by bus. Avarage quality of breakfast.
Excellent room, very clean. Polite and helpful staff. Cooked breakfast wasn't hot enough. Coffee wasn't hot enough.
