The room was very small, but well, I was there to sleep, nothing else. It was very new, good condition and it was realy realy clean. Thank you cleaning lady, you did an awesome job. I would go there again, anytime. But maybe next time they have to design a floor plane for a bath, they place the toilet on...

The room we got was very dark, small and without real air conditioning (the small movable device in the room does not count as real aircondition in 21st century). The breakfast was basic and the overall state of the premises simply nothing extra. For the price they are charging you get something better in other hotels...

First the hotel crew is wonderful, very friendly and will help and guide you with anything you may need. The room was clean with everything you need. Walking distance to the center of town. Excellent in my book

We were three friens and the room was quite big. Bathroom and room were clean and beds were comfortable. Hotel is close to a very big and busy road which has many bus and tram stops. The hotel staff was nice and kind

Superb place to stay. Don't be put off by entrance. Our room was just off the courtyard and seemed more like a bed sit - our own little quiet haven! Whilst we initially thought it was a little way out of the City, we soon learned it was a short pleasant walk. The reception staff were excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Myself and my friend stayed here for three nights and it was such a lovely stay. Our room had two single beds and our room was overlooking a really cute court yard. Our room was so lovely and warm and so nice to arrive back to in the evenings. Both the bathroom & the bedroom were really clean and were...

I stayed in this hotel this month. When I booked it I initially thought it was a hotel set up as the name suggests but upon arrival it felt more like a hostel! Despite this our room was as described and was actually lovely. Room cleaning was available everyday. Breakfast is also available for an additional small fee. Unfortunately you...

A. The rooms were really small. Although the room and bathroom had all the necessary stuff, the rooms were really small again. We literally had to step over our baggage to cross from one side to another. B. The breakfast spread wasn't great, especially if you're vegetarian (which we were). Otherwise there are 3-4 options (eggs, ham, etc) which should...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was very enjoyable. Very comfortable beds and a nice cosy room! Bathroom and room were very clean. The receptionist was very helpful and had good English. He recommended places for us to visit and to eat. The minibar in the room was very cheap and had a large variety of drinks! You...

Central Hotel 21 was a good choice for our stay in Budapest. Prices were fair and the service friendly. The rooms are basic (shower but no bath, which was as described) but absolutely fine for our needs. The reception staff were warm and helpful. They spoke excellent English. We had booked a transfer from the airport to the hotel via...
