Reviewed 10 December 2016

Nice budget hotel. Very cosy. Clean. Nice breakfast. Comfortable bed. Brilliant shower. Room cleaned and fresh towels every day. I loved it. Warm welcome at reception. Staff couldn't do enough for us. Mini bar in room. Once I found my way about Budapest I was delighted to find I was walking distance to Szechenyi Spa and to Arena Plaza shopping mall. I had a lovely time in Budapest. In going back to Star City Hotel next year. Except next time I'm going to say a bit longer. Well done Star City. All credit to you.

Room Tip: Room at back of hotel. Pretty quiet

We spent two nights. Receptionist was helpful, allowed us to keep our luggage in their storage room during Sunday even though we already checked out. The breakfast was delicious. Rooms were okay, cleaning services worked every day.

Dear nasty322ku,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our hotel. It is such a joy for us to read all the beautiful reviews here on TripAdvisor. I am happy to read that overall you had an enjoyable stay with us. - As you mentioned - it is true that we are not in the busy downtown, but we are also not far away from there. With 'Keleti pályaudvar' subway station a short walk from the hotel you can reach many fantastic attractions nearby and the mentioned downtown area as well - within 10 minutes.
Thank you so much again for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. We look forward to being at your service once again in the near future.
