Five minutes from Keleti station, and around 20-25 minutes from the city centre, this hotel is located at the back of a pub. The staff inside are very friendly and helpful, and we were checked in within a few minutes of arrival. There's no lift, so getting the luggage upstairs was tricky after a long day of travel, but luckily...

I stayed 2 nights, June 30th and July 1st. I chose Hotel Elit after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and it being so close to the main train station. It was a couple minute walk from the train station and it was easy to find. Check in was easy and fast. And yes, it is kind of a grimy looking entrance...

Located abt 10mins walk to the nearest keleti train station. This was the only hotel which had 3 bedders hence we booked to try.

It did the job close to the railways station but not the one for the airport. Plenty of convenient shops close by; wifi was strong. No lift though so heavy bags be ware. Room was nice and decent - i had a single no aircon so it was quite hot but the fan did the job.

From the outside this hotel looks more bar than hotel, but through the bar is the hotel reception and a cosy inner courtyard. Excellent value, friendly and good location close to Keleti station and easy to walk to busy square in 5 minutes or so and city centre in about 20. But plenty of places to choose from nearby. Don't...
