Ok hotel, worth the price”

price, food,

nice place to stay for a change. Margaret bridge is 10 minute walk. The room in which I stayed, I could hear everything from next room. Were kind of smelly (coz everything is made of wood, is a ship basically turned into hotel). Breakfast was ok and ample. Staff was good too. However, the price made it all worth, 20 euros for double room including breakfast.

Hostel = bunker”

location, breakfast

Well, I booked the room in Fortuna Boat hostel and that was BIG mistake. These rooms are located in lower deck (-1 level), where moisture is terrible, mostiness is what you can smell and if you are not very lucky, the window offer you the view to the ugly span bridge, so no light at all. I haven't spent more time in this place than I had to. Internet connection rather poor, not working in the restaurant. The only positive in this place was breakfast, which was really nice. Definitely too expensive for this quality.

Probably the worst room I've ever seen”

The staff was polite

We arrived there late at night so searching for a new hotel was out of the question. The price was low, so I didn't expect much, but the room was very, very small and dirty. There were cobwebs and dead spiders in the room. The corridor and showers were hardly better. Pillows were probably 10 years old.. All in all, the positive side is that you really see more Budapest when you don't want to stay in the hotel. I am not very sensitive normally, but this experience was extraordinary, one could say. The other rooms seemed to be a bit cleaner, though.

Lage, Idee, Urlaub

Wir waren im Hostel, im Internet sind die Zimmer nur vom Hotel und nicht Hostel, wir haben gefroren, keine Heizung war an und der Nachtportier hat uns einen Heizlüfter mitgegeben. 10 Grad ist nicht viel und auch der Heizlüfter hat es nicht richtig erwärmen können, Immerhin! Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit 2 Pritschen, seehr klein und nicht wirklich sauber und sehr schäbig. Sind dann umgezogen in ein besseres Zimmer. Das ging dann, Allgemein müsste das Boot, zimmertechnisch schwerstens überholt werden. Der Preis war allerdings sehr gut

Das Frühstück ist sehr gut, vielfältig und auch Abwechslungsreich.

Wir hatte ein sehr preiswertes Hostelzimmer im Bauch des alten zum Hotel umgebauten Schiffes gebucht, mit Gemeinschaftsdusche und -toilette und Bullauge . Allerdings kein Ausblick, laute knarrende Geräusche und unangenehmer Wassergeruch. Wir konnten gegen Aufpreis umbuchen in ein Hotelzimmer mit Klimaanlage und Minibad mit Toilette. Alles eng und Schiffsstandard, aber ok. Leider sind die Fenster der Hotelzimmer nicht zu öffnen. Das Frühstück war gut. Die Lage direkt an der Magaretenbrücke ist ideal. Es gibt ausreichende Parkplätze in der Nähe.

Хороший отель, мы были в самом бюджетном номере внизу - он конечно тесный, но за эти деньги - идеален. Чисто. Душ в самом бюджетном варианте неудобен - нет крючков для полотенца и одежды, места для мыла. Вкусные завтраки - шведский стол. Нормальный персонал - кроме одного придурка на ресепшене - мы кое-что забыли в номере после отъезда - и он нам не помог. Отличные виды, Дунай, мосты. Метро - до 15 минут пешком. Рекомендую.
