          A brilliant budget option. Clean and comfortable but most of all the staff were super friendly and helpful (special mention to receptionist Vivien for dealing with requests and unforeseen problems in a super positive and professional manner). I'd highly recommend the Star City for other budget travellers.

          Excellent”

          Very good value for money, this hotel is within a few blocks of Keleti which makes it most convenient for weary travelers but a bit of a walk for those who want to focus on the usual central city sightseeing places. Do not be discouraged, the underground (cheap enough & easy to navigate) can also be found at Keleti. Within stops you will be where you want to be. Free breakfast is fairly standard, though with a few more offerings than in other places I have stayed.

          Hotel”

          The room were ok however the property on the whole not very clear. The carpets/walls had a lot of dirt patches. Although animals are not allowed the room had a sort of animal dropping stink. The shower doors in the toilet were broken with filthy edges. Were afraid the door would just fall over when we try to close it. I have the pictures however not sure how to upload them here. The air conditioning was good and they provided a complimentary mobile with 4G. It should be a 1 or 2 star hotel and not sure a 3 star. Not sure if i would want to stay there again.

          Star City Bristol Hotel is close to Budapest's train station, but with only fast food restaurants in the immediate vicinity. It's a walk to find night life, nice restaurants or tourist attractions. Wifi was weak in the rooms, but good in the lounge downstairs. Staff were very helpful. Nice room for two adults.

          Worst hotel ever”

          1. The front desk guy (or manager) in his middle age is terribly unfriendly. He is extremely impolite, demanding and threatening throughout checkin, our 4 day stay, and check out. For those who are considering this hotel you could experience terrible impression of Hungary like we did. He definitely does not want to help except for selling tourist package tickets. 2. You may for the first time in you life to see buffet with leftover oranges with obvious knife cut by previous customers. 3. this hotel is wonderful for travellers with passion to take long walk. You will understand what i mean when you are exhausted or are with lugguges. Be prepare d to spend your vacation in Budpest walking.

          The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk from the main train station. We arrived late at night, but the receptionist was very helpful and friendly. The room size was decent, with relatively big windows. The shower was not in very good condition, which needed some repair work. The room rate includes a buffet breakfast, which offers decent selection of stuff. For such cheap price, this hotel is a very good choice overall.

          Clean hotel, good breakfast, not far from train st”

          worth the money

          I stayed for 3 nights at the Star City Hotel during August 2011. The hotel looks very clean and for the amount I paid for the single room, it was in my opinion very worth it. The hotel is located not so far from the Keleti pu train station. The neighbor can be quiet and dark at night. So it feels a bit scary to walk alone at the neighborhood during night. The hotel is also not so far from the Heroes' Square (Hosok tere). The rooms and toilets were very clean, although small, but it's good enough for me (it's a single room). the room is also equipped with air condition, which is a plus during summer time. Breakfast was good for me. We have the usual standard breads, ham, salami, hot omelettes (that's very good), tomatoes, cucumber, and cereal with milk. I received good service from the friendly reception. If you book the hotel with Agoda, it does not include the tourist tax (surprised at that), but it was not alot only around 400 something Hungarian Forint (1 Euro and something). If I do have a chance to come back to Budapest again, it is highly possible that I will stay at this hotel again. There's a safe deposit box in the room, so you can leave your valuables in it with no worries.
