Novotel Budapest City Hotel
Ranked #92 of 336 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed 27 November 2017 via mobile

Although the hotel is located outside commercial and tourist areas, Novotel Budapest City is still a good choice in this wonderful city. It is easily accessible through numerous bus and tram lines that go through the great palaces of Buda and impressive attractions of Pest. From the hotel, one could go straight right at the door of the Central Market with a short bus-tram combination. The hotel itself is decades-old but it was evident that improvements are constant undertaking. As such, the hotel has an upbeat and chic atmosphere that contrasts with its rooms which, in my opinion, need to undergo the same works for theme uniformity. Nevertheless, my room was comfortable and clean and had complete amenities. My only suggestion is for the hotel to provide more “real” pillows on the bed instead of throw pillows to augment the two (had a stiff neck on my 2nd day). The breakfast restaurant had good selection but can still be improved with a little imagination. The casual restaurant though offers excellent choices either for lunch/dinner or nightcap. I will surely think of this hotel next time I visit Budapest.

Typical Novotel standard meaning no surprises and pleasant stay. Perfect location with tram and bus stops literally in front of the hotel (we preferred the tram lines 17 and 61 going to Szent Kalman Ter M2 metro stop in less than 10 minutes). Paid parking available on site which is convenient if you travel by car.
MoM Park Mall is also next door with many restaurants and shops available.
Breakfast was good with many options.
Pool and spa available but we did not use it.
Although rooms showed some signs of ageing we had a pleasant stay and it is a good value for money. I do recommend this hotel for a family stay

The room was fabulous to stay and it's comfortable to sleep there. Great location there as it is in central Budapest, close to downtown area with tourist areas. Services were very helpful to provide an excellent customer services such as taxi arrangements.

This is an excellent hotel for a conference. Good conference facilities, very smart and efficient. Rooms basic but clean. Meals OK only, but breakfast good.

For a personal visit would not stay here, not a great location about 50 minutes walk to centre, but again good for business conference purposes.

A clean and reasonably positioned Novotel, however lacking some basics.

Average sized bedrooms, with separate (very small) toilet room and shower room. Bedrooms are really hot EVEN in November - air con is centrally switched off, and external windows only open slightly (with lots of traffic noise when opened!).

Mini bar fridge and safe. No iron or ironing board - tiny and depressing ironing room on 7th floor.

Very small TV, positioned in the corner of the room.

Free and fast Wi-fi throughout.

Good selection of food at breakfast including a waffle maker.

Good shopping complex (Mom Park) a 3 or 4 minute walk from hotel - includes Starbucks, Spar, numerous clothes shops and food bars.
