Great value for money”

We really enjoyed our stay in Central Hotel 21 - the staff was really friendly, the room was spacious, modern and clean. It was facing a small inner garden and it was quiet, the beds were comfortable, so it was 1 of the few hotels I've stayed in where I had a great night sleep. Also, parking was in a garage opposite the building which was quite convenient. Definitely recommend.

The location was very good because there are tourist spots very near the hotel. And its the last stop from the airport. The staff also recommended hop on hop of bus tickets that are cheap and the best way to see Budapest. They are very accommodating just ask then what you need to know and they would gladly assist. The Rooms Are Very Nice, way better than the photos on the site. Bery nice place. Will definitely come back!

Clean hotel in central location”

Clean rooms and very good prices

The hotel was very clean and the location to most tourist sightseeing location was quite short. The hotel is also very near to the metro station from the airport. We booked two twin rooms, which both had one big bed - one with a king size mattress and one with two mattresses. Both rooms were sufficiently big and were very well cared for. There was also a safe which we were free to use (it works with a key). The bathrooms were kinda small, but clean. The hotel didn't provide many bathroom utensils (except for 3 towels and small soap bars), which we didn't mind since we brought everything needed. The only downside is that for some reason we weren't able to find many many cafés nearby to have some breakfast. For that you have to walk a little further. The breakfast in the hotel cost 5€, which we didn't try since it seemed a little expensive for Budapest. There were some bars around the hotel though. All in all we really liked the hotel and next time coming back to Budapest, we'd definitely stay there again.

Comfortable clean rooms, great location friendly staff

We had a really great stay. The staff at the front desk were helpful and friendly and they also allowed a free of charge late check out for our benefit. The rooms were quite facing an inner court yard. Needs were extremely comfortable and the rooms are very clean! Best of all in a central location near the city center great bars and restaurants and public transport. Highly recommended!

Very friendly people, but a noisy room”

Very friendly and well English speaking personel

We arrived late in the evening (which the hotel knew we would) and it still was 28 degrees outside. The room was very warm, they didn't have airconditioning (I didn't pay attention to it while booking the room), but they also didn't already put on the ventilator, so it would be a bit better in the room. Besides this, the room was on te ground floor in what appeared to be a noisy street. So I woke up several times because of cars and talking people passing by. I have to say that the receptionist at night as well as the one I encountered the next morning, were very friendly and helpfull. Both spoke English very well. But, if I would visit Budapest another time or you came here for some rest, I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
