Reviewed 14 April 2014

Not too distant from the touristic centre of Budapest, Central 21 offers excellent value for the very reasonable amount of money paid. The rooms are a little bit on the small side, breakfast is so-so, but I would still recommend it for a short stay, especially on a budget.

I stayed at Central Hotel 21 for 4 days and was very satisfied. This hotel is centrally located, and very convenient to reach via public transportation.

So in addition to the disturbance of every taxi pulling up, late night revellers, early morning refuse collections (my personal favourite at 0600 - complete with flashing lights) - I had...
