City Hotel Pilvax, Budapest
Stay away from this place.
I already told you about this "non-stay". I never checked in because they did not have air-conditioning (as advertised). It was 30C* and the room smelled like smoke (my wife has asthma so we absolutely couldn't stay). We requested refund, so we were told to go through for the refund (5 nights plus breakfast). They denied the refund to Very unprofessional management.

The hotel did not adhere to the terms under which I booked this place. They turned off the air conditioning and the room temp was 30c* with no possibility to open a window. The room also smelled like cigarette smoke. We did not check in (my wife has asthma issues), had to find another hotel where my wife could breath. So we requested a refund (we paid for 5 nights plus breakfast), which the Pilvax hotel declined. Very poor, unprofessional business practice, I would tell everybody to stay away from this venue.

I would never go back there. I booked it based on their promise of air-conditioned rooms. On September 12 they shut down the air condition system. My wife (who has asthma issues) were ready to check in on September 13 just to find out that the air is off. we couldn't open the window so the room temperature was around 30 C* and the room smelled like cigarette. So we told them we cannot check in and left for another hotel. I asked for refund (517.65 for 5 nights plus breakfast) and they told me that I have to go through (the company I used to book this hotel). I did just that, but told me that Pilvax hotel already received the funds and they refuse to issue a refund. To me they did not adhere to the terms of the agreement and it's hard to believe that they would flatly refuse to deal with this issue. It' almost a joke that they didn't even mention that we also pre paid for breakfasts (which we obviously did not use). This place is about as unprofessional as it gets. Stay away from them.

Very Good8.0
It was a good place to stay. The only thing was the vent would make a high pitched squeaking noise anytime someone above us moved around, but it was fine.

Good location, clean, a bit loud
The staff was wonderful, they go above and beyond with directions and customer service. The room was very clean and excellent hot water with a lot of pressure in shower. It was hard to keep the room temperature right, was too hot or too cold, and since there's no elevator you can hear people arriving throughout the day/night (thud, clink, thud, clink echoing). convenient location, good breakfast with fruit, a variety of eggs, cheeses/meats, many pastries, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, cereal, including a few local things. I recommend unless you have trouble with stairs and luggage, or if you're a light sleeper.
