"We stayed at Hotel Charles Sept. 4-11, 2013. We found the front-desk staff to be knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to deal with; the bell hop was great too. Our room was well equipped (we even had a kitchen) and it was quiet for sleeping. At first we booked for only three nights, but when our experience was so positive and we found out the rates for hotels that were closer to the action, we decided Hotel Charles was an excellent choice for us and so we stayed at Hotel Charles for our whole time in Budapest. Both my husband and I enjoy walking and so we enjoyed the 20 minute walk over the bridge and into Pest. With all the wonderful Hungarian food we were enjoying, we also thought the trek back to our hotel at the end of the evening was really good exercise. The only negative: our pillows were a little lumpy. I'm sure that if we had made the front desk staff aware of this, we would have received different pillows; and also, the television was a little small and not flat screen (we were hardly in the room to watch though). All in all, we would definitely recommend Hotel Charles. My husband and I loved Budapest and its people."

“Great Budget accommodation”
"We visited Budapest in early May 2013 and stayed at the Hotel Charles for 2 nights. The hotel staff were very attentive and provided great advice for making the most of our 3 day stay. As mentioned in other reviews the rooms are comfortable but slightly dated, all good for the price though! On our first night we dined at the onsite restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by the fantastic food and wine. Would thoroughly recommend the food here as it was some of the best we sampled during our trip! Again other reviewers have mentioned that the location is a bit further out of town but there are plenty of buses to town. Would definitely stay again."

The staff was always near and always ready to help.
“The staff was always near and always ready to help. Morning breakfast was also very tasty and diversity. The hotel is comfortable to ride over Buda, but if you wanna visit Pest you must cross over the bridge. It is not a problem if you get a car (cause we got it).”
"A large room with fully equipped kitchenette..."
"A large room with fully equipped kitchenette and kitchenware, comfortable beds, secure parking and, last but not least, very friendly, helpful, well trained and skilled staff. We arrived late after midnight and surprisingly we were offered a Deluxe studio instead the Standard one we have booked without being charged for extra services. They even allowed us to stay in our room after check-out time (11 a.m.), but we missed the chance to sleep till midday."

"I dont know where I shall start but i was choosing this hotel under my first trip to Budapest and I am very happy for that. I was staying there for one week and fromthe first moment to the last minute it was fantastic. The restaurant. The room. The people in reception. The ladies who fix room every day. They are so full of service there, that i have never seen before. Nothing is a problem for them they fix everything you want. Prices are good. I could write a book about the week who have gone but i have to stop somewhere. Thanks again all in the hotel and i will for sure under next visit choose YOU again and not spoil time with looking other places. I was feeling like I was the King of Norway and for other good that in am not. Greetings from Øystein in Norway."

"I definitely recomment Charles Hotel"
“It was probably my 5th or 6th time that i stayed in Charles hotel! I have to say that it will be my choice further on. The staff of the hotel is very polite, very helpful and extremely friendly. The rooms are large and comfortable, clean and neat. I have to mention that i checked in around midnight after a long flight and the staff at the reception had a pleasant surprice, they offered a room upgrade!! On the check out day there was another surprice, a delicious chocolate bar as a farewell gift. Although a chocolate and a room upgrade doesn't sound extraordinary gifts it's the gesture that matters. I definitely recomment Charles Hotel for your staying in Budapest.”
