A great place at the nearest to airport metro station, 5 minutes walk to the metro, after that you can reach the city centre in 20-25 minutes. We had an early flight so it was very convenient to get to the airport at the morning by bus. Apart from that, a hotel is a good place to stay, it's clean, with polite staff, we had our room cleaned every day, the one thing we didn't like was the size of our room (it was too small, see my room tip). We also tried a breakfast, it's cheap and tasty! So I would definitely recommend this hotel!

The hotel is great and comfortable and close to the airport (you take bus 200E to the last stop - 20 min, and you're there). We arrived late and took us a while to find the hotel, because there are no street names, and we didn't have internet to check the map, and there was no one in the street who could help, but eventually a woman pointed to us that there is a hotel a few blocks away from where we were (the bus station). So that was a negative. Nevertheless, the guy at the front desk was great, and check in was fast. The room was in the end of the corridor (very long). Great to be in the quiet place, but there are many steps up and down to get there and a bit uncomfortable with suitcases. The room was nice and bed was comfortable, with TV and mini fridge, also the shower was nice, but you need to wait 5 min for water to heat up. We stayed 1 night and it was very cheap and clean, so definitely worth the money.
Also, it's 2 blocks away from bus and metro station with a big mall (including a supermarket), so that was great too!

It is our second (and not last) time at the hotel! Family of 2 adults, 2 children & a baby. The location is great (for us)- 20 min. by 200E bus (15 min. by taxi) from the airport, 20 min. my M3 from city center, a 2 min. walk from a huge mall! The room (we asked the same room as last time) is HUGE, warm, cosy, clean. Great beds with clean sheets & towels every day! We even got a baby's crib no charge! The bathroom is VERY big and clean! No kettle in the room but the staff will boil water for you at any time! Breakfast is AWESOME! (eggs, meat, cheese, bread, coffee, juice etc.) The staff is AMAZING! So nice, warm, welcoming, always want to help! Absolutely fabulous hotel! will be back next year once again!

This hotel is in a superb location about 20 mins by metro outside the city centre. It is situated beside a large modern shopping centre and the kobanya kispest transport terminal where you may access several rail, metro and bus routes. The 200E bus terminates here from the airport which is approx 20 mins away. The hotel is clean and the rooms, although small, are comfortable and adequate. This is a value for money hotel. I found the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served between 7am and 10am and consists of hot food such as sausages, bacon etc and cereals, juices, yogurts and fruit. No problem with the food. I would return to Hotel Chesscom without hesitation.
