More like a hostel not hotel
Room was fine and people at Reception were nice. However, no cleaning or changing of towels for the whole stay. Also, no lift and no assistance to carry bags to second floor.

Poor 2.0
Terrible service at the counter and as a company overall. We realized our cancellation did not go through 3 days into our 7-day fully paid for booking. The establishment refused to refund us the last 4 days OR give us the keys to the 2-rooms we booked. They had taken our money $2000 USD) and given the rooms away. Terrible service. Don't waste your time with this management. They are greedy and not about service.

Good 6.0
It's a good hotel, the only problem i had was, I could hear other people next to my room. The walls are from wood or something.
Esteban, us2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Pro- location was great. Easy to navigate from the hotel to public transit. Con- the rooms are old, poor lighting, in need of repair. The bed is not an a typical bed, but more like a futon that is covered in a scratchy material, which is covered with a single flat sheet. The pillows were old and flat. The is no circulation of air in the room and the air cond did not work. At check in - we were met by an very unpleasant lady that did not care to provide any type of assistance. She provided a room key without providing any information or detail where the room was located or even how to get to it. We were placed in a dirty room. Apparently, this room did not include towels. After working with a very nice person who seemed to want to help, we were switched into another room. Unfortunately, the next day without clear communication we were moved back to the original room. Again no towels and were instructed we have to take dirty towels from the room we were being move out of to be used in the original room. The pictures and descriptions of amenities used regarding this property is a misrepresentation. I can not recommend this property.

Ár/érték arány kifogástalan.
First of all, guys at the reception could not be more welcoming that brings the level of service and hospitality to the highest level. The price of the room is unbeatable especially if One has some expectation regarding the service that One receives for their money along to the short distance to railway stations as well as the underground! Rooms are also not only spotless, but they have kettle, aircon and everything that One might need for a shorter to mid-long vacation, One can even cook on a hot plate./microwave on the first floor of the premises. (Lots of eateries, pubs etc. are also nearby located if One needs these for a quick bite.) Ár/érték arány kifogástalan. Tisztaság magas szintü, valamint a hotel összes alkalmazottja ott segït, ahol tud, hogy a vendég a lehetö legjobban érezze magát a nyaralása során. Vïzforraló, légkondicionáló van a szobákban, de ha valaki szeretne valamivel komplexebb fogást készíteni, mikrohullámú sütöt és elektromos fõzõlapot az elsõ emeleten talál. Keleti Pályaudvar, Blaha Lujza tér, Astoria a közelben van. Zuallererst könnten die Leute an der Rezeption nicht freundlicher sein, was den Service und die Gastfreundschaft auf höchstem Niveau bringt. Der Preis des Zimmers ist unschlagbar, besonders wenn man Erwartungen an den Service hat, den man für sein Geld erhält, bis hin zur kurzen Entfernung zu Bahnhöfen und zur U-Bahn! Die Zimmer sind nicht nur makellos, sondern verfügen auch über einen Wasserkocher, eine Klimaanlage.
