      good location. simple, decent clean rooms. pretty good breakfast. good value for money. would stay there again.

      hotel reception staff could do with a bit more effort/enthusiasm. they initially gave us the wrong room (a twin instead of a double) - although they swiftly gave us the correct room after, we didn't receive any apology, if anything, more of a grunt from the head receptionist. More junior members of staff were much more helpful and approachable.

      i thought the room cleaning people were very nice

      the lights in the dining room were unpleasant and made me not want to eat there

    • Group of friends

      The stuff is very helpful and friendly. Location is good just right at the corner of major sights.

      Don't look out of the windows, the picture is very poor))) don't need to take breakfast in the hotel, you can find better offers for the same price in town.

      brilliant location!!

      there wasn't anything to dislike as such but could perhaps do with a bit of an update particularly the bathroom which had minor knocks and cracks but overall was clean and functional so not a problem.

      Good location...only few minutes from city center and in very quiet part of city. Staff was very friendly and polite.Breakfast was more than excellent.

    • Single

      Services + city centrum.

      Internet access should be free or at least with reasonable price for a whole day or whole stay. It is a nuisance to run to reception and always choose a separate time span for your needs.

    • Single
      8.2

      Its location is very convenient to my needs. The staff is friendly and most of them really try to help. Too bad the restaurant is no longer open except for breakfast. I like the croissant/cafe option. I have stayed at this hotel three times and may well return there the next time I travel to Budapest.

      The sheets should be able to be tucked in. I also like a sheet under the duvet. I would have liked a coffee maker in the room. There is internet in the room --I am told-- but it is at a very high daily rate. It should be free.

      We can recommend this hotel because of good position, obliging personal. It is ideal for young pair.

      It was very convenient, well-located, clean, friendly, reasonably priced with a traditional atmosphere and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

      Excellent facility. Clean, well appointed rooms; very good location; pleasant staff.

      My husband and I thought that hotel was an excellent value because the price was good and the location central. Our room, which was on an inside courtyard, was quiet and comfortable. At the cost of 6€ a day each, the breakfast was also a good value, offering a huge selection of both hot and cold dishes. In addition we appreciated having a non- smoking floor. Close to the hotel is the Govinda Vegetarian Restaurant (closed Sundays), which is wonderful and extremely well priced. T

      The carpet in our room was very stained, and smoking was allowed in the bar, which is adjacent to the room where breakfast is served. Also the Internet was very expensive--close to $20.00 a day and unreliable. However, the hotel staff sent us to a pleasant cafe next door where wifi is free. Unfortunately, because the Cafe Central allows smoking, we could not use it. The good news is that beginning January 1, 2012, the cafe will be completely nonsmoking.

      Excellent location to explore Budapest. Located in nice pedestrian area. Very clean and quiet hotel.

      Bar area seemed to be closed for the duration of our stay.

      The location and the beds.

      The room was small and had too much unnecessary furniture. The bathroom and shower were also quite small and there were two big cracks on the shower floor which had been disguised by a rubber floor mat that didn't even fit the shower space and made it quite uncomfortable if not dangerous. The only toilettery provided was a tiny bar of soap (one for two persons) that was not renewed during our stay. The towels were see-through, rotten and there were even holes in them and they were never replaced in the three days we stayed there. Also, the room was noisy and you could hear all the noises from other guests. Internet was very expensive and there was only one computer and no printer.

    • Single

      Erzebet is an excellent hotel with one exception. The carpet on the floor I occupied, #2, was absolutely gross and in need of replacing years ago. Hey, I'm a camper and a dog person, so my level of tolerance is high. But I couldn't stand to look down at the carpet. It was beyond being able to be cleaned. Other than that, this place is great and I highly recommend it.

    • Couple
      5.0

      It's located really near the center of Budapest. The room is comfortable.

      The staff is a quite rude. The breakfast croissant and milk is really poor (1/4 croissant). I request a double room and i received a twin room. I asked to delay the check out and they told me it was not permitted.
