8/10 Great

07 March 2008

OK but some problems

The staff on reception were friendly and helpful, no problems when booking in. The bedrooms and the hotel were spotless, but I did have ants in my bathroom, was not happy with that and from about 7.30am, you have very little chance of sleeping I have never stayed in such a noisy hotel, do not know if its the cleaners or other guests but doors banging, then the cleaners with their vacuum cleaners, I always take ear plugs on holiday but it was that loud it shook the beds. The other thing we were not happy with that when you came in late at night the porter/night manager was asleep on the sofa all the keys were laid on top of reception anyone could have walked in off the street and took the keys and robbed your room. Do not know what breakfast was like we dont eat it, the bar is on the expensive side, but hotel bars often are. Small bottle beer in hotel bar, 600 HUF in a local bar 220 HUF.

great hotel

The Kings Hotel is well situated for exploring the sights of Budapest. The rooms, though unpretentious are beautifully clean and have a fridge, air conditioning and room safe. The breakfasts had a good selection of continental type food. The staff were friendly and welcoming and very helpful. The hotel is also well situated for exploring the sights of Budapest and is only a couple of minutes away from the Great Synagogue. The hotel is good value for the money.
