About City Hotel Matyas


This turn-of-the-century, neoclassical styled building offers 85 guestrooms and is ideally close to the Vaci pedestrian street. The City Hotel Matyas is located in the heart of Budapest and is just 100 meters from the beautiful Danube riverbank. It is also within a very short walk from Vaci Street, where guests will find a wide array of exclusive shopping boutiques, restaurants, and bars. Many of the rooms offer panoramic views of either Castle Hill or Danube River and the Chain Bridge. The on-site restaurant serves Hungarian dishes and fine wines and plays live Gypsy music. The 3-star City Hotel Matyas is an ideal choice for its turn-of-the-century charm and its excellent central location.

Good for budget travellers
The hotel is city centered and very near to Duna, in which I can walk to the river side to enjoy the night view. Price is cheap with a very large room and refrigerator is provided. The room is clean also. However, no kettles can be provided and the staff is not helpful. The hotel needed wifi password requested from the counter. I requested one and she gave me an inaccurate one. I kept saying that I can use wifi with that password and she refused to give me another one, mentioning that it took time for the password to work. It turned out that I can't use wifi for three days during my stay.

no signboard showing the hotel name
good location, clean room
The receptionist insist that I return the hair dryer after using it and cannot wait until check out. The hotel dont even have a boiler and can't request for hot water. Lots of staircase and steps to reach the room. No signboard outside the hotel gate with the hotel name.

Facade of hotel is deceptive, but it's central
Location, location, location
When I arrived there was a blackout. No electricity in the reception area. No room card could be issued and no WIFI. In the section of the building I was staying, at least there was electricity. However, no hot water for 2 days. Air conditioner did not work at all, it just blew hot air, which was an issue due to the hot weather in Budapest this summer. Staff member was however, sympathetic, helpful and pleasant. Good part of this hotel is that it is central located close to the market, CBD, metro, spas etc.

room 167
Location, some friendly staff, location
A booking for a single room with river view was made in January 2015. On 29 May 2015 I was given a little dark & with iron bars behind the windows. The view was a wall of the inner court where the staff smoked & sounds of exhausts could be heard. The room was small, dark and stuffy. The van & aircon didn't work, the telephone was useless as it crackled and no conversation could be conducted as I could not hear a thing, the tv, a very old model, didn't work properly nor did the little fridge. The blowdryer I was given on loan by the reception was hardly working. All in all room-wise the hotel was a big disappointment; this was a room for a late walk-in and not for a person who had a confirmed booking already in January. The hotel or you as booking agency could have informed me whether my request for a view could be granted or not. As I have seen another single room (with street view)in that hotel the price I paid was absolutely not justified.
