              Enjoy it!”

              Location, quiet pedestrian street, nice staff, good breakfast

              Before I review this good hotel, I want to warn who reads this against a restaurant where we were ripped off. The restaurant's name is Buborék Bisztro and its address is Dorottya utca 8 (this is very near to that known square called Vörösmarty Tér). If you ever eat there, beware of prices of wine because they charged us 3500HUF = 16US$ for just a glass of wine (it was our fault not to ask beforehand how much this would cost -we just assumed that it would cost what a glass of wine normally costs all over Western Europe-, so they took advantage of our "innocence" to ripp us off). Now, with reference to the City Hotel Pilvax, we were very satisfied with the location (it's in the heart of Pest, very close to Ferenciek Tere metro station which line is perfect to get to the airport), with the staff (very nice people), with the room and with the breakfast. The room was not so big but its size was enough for the two of us (picture attached). It was very clean, it had 2 comfortable beds, good heating, a not so big but very clean bathroom (picture attached), a convenient wardrobe, a couple of chairs, a desk, a normal TV set (not flat screen) and a small refrigerator. The sleeping quality was also good. We didn't hear any noise at all from other rooms and neither from the pedestrian street where the hotel is located even when our room was on the first floor (there is no elevator). In regards to the breakfast, we loved the breakfast room (see attached picture) and also the breakfast which offered much more than a usual continental breakfast. There was scrambled egg, small hot sausages, 4 types of bread, pieces of tomates and other vegetable, 2 types of cheese, several types of cold meat and cold sausages, butter, 2 types of jam, yogurts, bananas, apples, oranges, cereals, cold milk, hot milk, tea, coffe and fruit juices. Finally, let me mention as well that in the hotel lobby they have a computer for guests (and there is also wifi).

              hotel pilvax was a great place to stay in budapest- centrally located and within walking distance of most attractions. the room was well equipped and clean. the staff spoke good english and were polite and helpful. we asked for a room at the back and it was very quiet. good atmosphere at jack doyles next door (with a live irish band on friday nights) and good food. the hotel was excellent value. just be aware that there are no lifts.

              Nice hotel, centrally located in Budapest, close to many attractions, affordable prices usually, great staff. On the negative side I would say that the hotel definitely needs a refurb. Our room had issues here and there, mostly because no refurbishing was done for some time. Visited previously, but now for a next visit we would probably go somewhere else instead.

              the hotel is located in the center of budapest. the main attractions are nearby (we walked most of the days. only for the visit of margit island we used the public transportation). the staff was very friendly. our room was situated on the first floor so we did not miss the elevator. the breakfast could be better (hardly any fruit). the rooms were clean and comfortable. if i would visit budapest again i surely would book this hotel again.

              The Pilvax is located directly in the heart of Budapest and is very close to everything. The next subway station is less than 5 minutes away and everything, especially all the major atractions, are within easy walking distance. The staff was very friendly, attentive and professional. The room was a bit dark due to the window being a rearside window. Size and cleanliness of the room were absolutely okay. Overall good value for money.

              This hotel is located in a pedestrian street right in the center of Budapest, which is quite nice. Unfortunately, noise isolation (from the street and the hallway) are non existent. Be aware there is no lift, so if you're carrying heavy luggage, you know what you will find. Shower with good pressure, toiletries were a bit poor (just shower gel). WiFi worked poorly in my room. There is a mini fridge which is quite useful. I didn't go for the breakfast as I didn't want to book it for my 3 nights stay as I needed to leave early on my last day: I sent an email to the hotel, they said it wouldn't be a problem, but then the price for breakfast per day went from 5e (agoda) to 8e (on site). The bed is ok but a little bit too hard, pillows do their work but also need some renewal.

              Location, ( and price )

              This place has to be the best in Budapest. It is so central to everything. Within a short walk you can reach all the points of intrest, the Jewish quarter, the central market, the river, the trams, it's just fantasti. The staff are so helpfull. If anyone has anything bad to say about this place they should stay somewhere costing three times the price. It is not the Hilton, but for service and location it has to be rated highly.

              location

              Average type city hotel. No elevator, not suitable for heavy luggage. Room satisfactory. Breakfast not included but places nearby. Head towards river. Cheaper and better than hotel. What was a problem was the irish bar next door and just under the hotel. There were tables and chairs outside but after 11.00pm they moved inside but you could still hear the bumping of the music. We know it is a city hotel so you don't expect it to be peaceful and quiet. Manager told us next time to ask for a room on the back. Don't let this put you off staying here.

              In city center, near the attractions”

              The lady at the reception was friendly - thanks. The hotel location is good - not that far from the 'Buda' side of the city via Elisabeth Bridge. Just a walking distance to Citadel, Gellert Hill. It's also close to pedestrian shopping street and cafes. The single room I stayed is very basic, but spacious enough for a solo traveler. Basically, good for sleeping/resting at night only (as the hotel itself is very minimalist). The good thing, there is 'Pappa Roti Cafe' in front of the hotel, serves 'halal' Middle Eastern Food.

              Value for money”

              Hotel staff was extremely kind, professional and helpful. The room was clean, as well as the reception area. Location of this hotel is very good, close to the pedestrian zone, howevernnot noisy at all

              I stayed only for 1 night, and I was very content for choosing this hotel. Wifi connection was good, there isba small supermarket around the corner. I didn't have breakfast at the hotel, so I cannot write about that. The only negative side I've experienced was the food smell in the hallways and in the room (1st floor), probably from thei hotel's restaurant.

              Location, friendly staff, cleanliness

              We enjoyed our stay (I was there with a friend, each in his single room). It was good value for money. The rooms were not large, but adequate. The hotel is on a quiet pedestrian street, in a central location, close to public transport. There is unfortunately no lift, so you have to walk up at least two floors, which did not bother us, but may be a problem for some guests. The staff in the reception is very helpful and nice.

              good location

              This hotel is located in city center, it is a budget hotel and convenient, room is big enough but a bit old decoration. The Staff is friendly and helpfull but the wifi is not always steady and only available in lobby. There is a bit shopping mall and alot of restaurant arround the hotel. if u don't expect a lot, just go for cheap price. there's nothing special.
