Central, clean and friendly

The Astoria gets a 5 for such a central location and the same for a lovely breakfast in elegant surroundings. The rooms were very good - clean and comfortable however the fact that a double room was simply two single beds pushed together took something away from the stay and only gets a 4. Unfortunately it was quite noisy as the bins seemed to get emptied each morning at about 4 o'clock - ok, nothing the Hotel could really do about that but it meant for a disturbed night - 3 out of 5. Finally, yes I would happily stay there again and recommend this Hotel to friends.

Astoria review

Having read all the reviews before we booked we were not a bit disappointed. We asked for (and got) rooms that didn't face the front and had two adjacent rooms that were very comfortable indeed, with chairs to relax in as well as chairs at the desks. The breakfast was great, plenty of choice of hot and cold food and endless juice, tea and coffee. We also ate in the hotel a couple of evenings and thoroughly enjoyed well cooked, beautifully presented dishes. The menus at 4000 frts were particularly good value. Its location is excellent, right by the metro and a brisk 5 minute walk to the Danube. The staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant and we all agreed we would definitely stay again.

Excellent location next to a Metro Station and bus routes. Glorious public rooms in this historic hotel. Our room, although large and clean was a little worn but at the rate of approx £40 a night for a double room including breakfast, it was great value. There was plenty of choice for the buffet breakfast. The dining room was never crowded and the staff efficient. I would recommend this hotel it was great value for money in a capital city. We picked up a Zona taxi at the airport and booked on the net to be taken back at the end of our visit. Quick and good service. They charge a set rate so you have no fear of being cheated.

Handy location, right on metro, although we ended up walking everywhere quite easily. We had a room on the side street so not too noisy. Our room was one of the smaller unrefurbished type and pretty worn out, defintiely not 4star but served purpose and was clean. As in many places the 'double' was two beds pushed together (also the plastic backed mattress cover was uncomfortable). After the first night we asked if they had rooms with a proper double bed and was told not on the rate we paid but only in better grade rooms which are 30euro extra. Good variety at breakfast - inlcuding chocolate cake! The man on reception was more efficient than welcoming. Characterful reception and dining areas. All in all, ok if you get a good rate but don't expect 4 star if you get an unrefurbished room. Also if you want a taxi back to the airport, ask them to phone Zona taxis (get a card on the way from the airport to hotel) as they are cheaper than the rate advertised of the firm used by the hotel.

Review of 'ASTORIA'

The Astoria was pretty much as expected from the reviews I had read. The renovated part of the hotel is very impressive, but our rooms were in the un-renovated section. The rooms were a little tired looking to say the least, although reasonably large and importantly, they were clean. Make sure you ask for rooms that do not face the street as the bin men are very noisy at 5 am every morning! Breakfast was OK with a decent range on offer. All in all, the location made up for everything, but don't be fooled by the star rating, this is no 4 star hotel.

Review of 'ASTORIA'

This was a nice hotel. Not AMAZING! but nice. It had everything you could need, from good rooms, nice bathrooms, a cafe and a restaurant(which is expensive and mainly consists of goose liver and caviar!) But that was about it. The staff are reluctant to speak English! But this happens in most of Budapest. <br />Its location is probably it's best quality. Smack bang in the middle of Budapest, meaning you can get to everything, anywhere!<br />You can purchase a Budapest Card from the reception. These are about £20 each and last for 3 days, (you can also buy 2 day passes, im assuming this is about £15. These cards give you free travel on all forms of transport, and discounts into a large number of attractions and restaurants. I would definatly recommend you buy one, whether you're at the Astoria or not! The Zoo is a must see, and is free with your Budapest card.<br />If you're looking for a well priced, nice, centrally located hotel, then the Astoria is perfect.
