    Although the hotel is right along the main street, in the signage over the entrance, it was not easy to notice the words, Rex Mathias, and thus to find the hotel.

    The receptionist was welcoming and delightful. She told me about the outdoor weekend jazz concerts very near the hotel. Excellent and generous breakfast!

    The room was dirty and there were LOTS of spiders and spider webs. Some of the webs were in the corners on the floor - which means that they never even wash the floor in this hotel. This was disgusting. The hotel claims to provide a private parking. However, its capacity is insufficient for all guests. The parking was full when we arrived, and we had to park on the street instead. Consider that if you choose to arrive by car. No hot food for breakfast.

    Not too far from the city center. Not too expensive. English-speaking staff.

    Breakfast could be better, it would be great to add kettle and cups to the room.

    Szentendre is worth seeing. It is really charming and romantic. The hotel is located in a quiet street, leading to the historic center. Our room was comfortable and clean, but we mostly spent our time walking around the city, admiring the sights.

    We arrived at 8:30pm and immediately went for dinner at the hotel's restaurant. As soon as the waiter saw us, he complained to the cook "Now I have to stay till 10". Even after we ordered we could overhear some parts of their not too kind conversation where they refered to us. It was a really unpleasant experience.

    We booked it last minute and was the only property with freee room

    Can't say there's much that wasn't good but I would say this is more of a B&B than a hotel. Rooms are probably less furnished than in a hotel and the bathroom isn't a "proper" bathroom. It is still private, but it's a plastic bathroom inserted into the corner. Nonetheless, it was completely fine and was very clean and big enough so no complaints.

    The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. A great location, within walking distance of the Danube, restaurants and the centre of town. Hotel has parking, a nice breakfast, clean rooms, air con, wifi, and private bathrooms.
