The location of the hotel was the key to our good stay in Budapest. The hotel is close to many restaurants and bars leading to major thoroughfares where metro, bus and all other transportation could be found. There were no phones in the hotel rooms, and we were not able to get a kettle or an iron. We had to...

I'm happy we choose this hotel. Nice clean rooms, small but you have everything you need and anyway you spend of the time exploring the city. Our room was on the ground floor, so we heard cars passing by the window, and still it was ok(almost no trafic during the night). Staff is very friendly and shuttle service is great.

We stayed with five persons in an appartment of central hotel 21. Great stay, clean rooms, friendly staff, nice breakfast, good location. The breakfast-area is a bit too small for the amount of guests staying there, but service was good. They also offer a good and not too expensive transfer-service to/from the airport.

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.
