“Good hotel & friendly staff”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

We stayed at the Carlton in Dec 2011. I think this is a good hotel for the price but it should be considered a 3 star by American standards.
Great breakfast & attentive staff.

Truly, when we booked this hotel, we thought the name "Carlton" would involve some extra quality above the average. But it wasn't. Carlton Hotel Budapest has 4 stars but it deserves 2 and a half, no more.
Briefly: rooms are a bit small. But it's clean. The worst part is the bed as every room has 2 small beds put together, as we were told by the unfriendly guy at the reception desk.
Breakfast is the best thing of the hotel as there are many options... except sweet things!! 4 different cheeses but no cakes, any of them! I called this the salty Budapest breakfast.
Location is nice for exploring the city, just in front of the Chain Bridge. We read on Internet Pest is better than Buda for hotels, but for us, location was more than ok.

Tip: In the main street, just exiting the hotel to the left there is a good cheap restaurant for lunch (Ildiko Konyhaja)

Room Tip: Don't ask for king size beds. They have only rooms with 2 small beds put together.

The best thing about this hotel is the location, being very close to the chain bridge and within walking distance of all the main attractions on both sides of the fantastically stunning Danube. The rooms are small (but no smaller than most city hotels), clean and serviced daily.The toiletries were poor really especially the shampoo that looked as if it had been around for a while, but just take your own. Breakfat was a tad disappointing, even though there was the usual array of rolls, meats and jams etc. Hot food was very very limited (ie congealed looking scrambled egg and small sausages) and the coffee was poor. Even the hot water for tea was only just warm! OK we didn't starve, but neither did we want to linger over breakfast. Having said that, the staff were pleasant and helpful and our experience probably wouldn't stop us from going there again. By no means awful, just felt it could do better. There is a great little bar just around the corner (go down the steps and turn right), which we went to every night for our nightcap (the hotel bar/reception area not somewhere where you would want to sit). Very smoky, but great fun and full of locals which is always a good sign.

This hotel is in the perfect location for exploring the Castle area of Budapest. The rooms are small but comfortable, clean and suitable for a few nights rest from exploring Budapest. The bathroom is a good size, good shower over the bath and a good stock of soap, shower gel , hair dryer, etc. The beds were a little hard for our liking but others might like them. There is a minibar in the fridge with a small stock of soft drinks and alcohol and prices are reasonable. Tea and coffee making facilities are in the room, although they weren't replenished every day, but this wasn't a problem for us. The breakfast was a very good selection of buffet items including hot sauasge and omlette, cold meats and cheeses, cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast, tea, coffee and fruit juices. The staff were helpful and more than pleased to look after our cases, after check out time, until we left for the airport. There is a genuine Hungarian restaurant at the bottom of the steps, to the left, where staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

The Carlton hotel is in an excellent location !0 minutes from the castle area and about 15 minutes from the main areas of Budapest.The room was clean and there was a kettle,safe and a fridge in room,the breakfast was good with a variety of dishes to suit everybody ie (scrambled egg,small sausage,cold meats sliced cheese ,lovely fresh bread rolls,salads,cereals and a lot of other items.) After a full day sight seeing we found a nice bar about 5 hundred yards from the hotel and a nice cellar restuarant about 2 hundred yards from the hotel.I would recommend this hotel and would be sure to stay there again on my next visit to budapest.

Room Tip: we had room 113 it was at the back and away from the lift
