    Room was not clean beds were to dirty to sleep on. All over it was not clean and staff unfriendly. Hardly spook English and the breakfast seem to be fried stuff all over. Loads of fried meat which as vegetarian left hardly any option to eat. So I went to the supermarket for my own breakfast. Considering the price this was to expect...

    Close to a mall and busstation

    Mattresses were very uncomfortable. In the morning, during breakfast there was no clean plates, spoons, forks or knives for some 20 minutes, untill the staff washed them. All the guests have to wait for that although it was the middle of breakfast time..

    Hotel is very affordable and is easily accessible with car. Free public parking spaces can be easily found around hotel. All in all, you get what you paid for.

    I am not used to write bad reviews, but this experience was just so bad, that I can't hold myself back. We booked a one night stand in this hotel and as we knew it was pretty cheap, we did not expect much. The only thig I wanted was a clean room with a proper bed and a bathroom, but the room that we got was far from these expectations. Dirt was all over the room and the bed was so used and old that we could literally feel the holes in it.I was very upset and refused to shower in the bathroom, because I did not feel comfortable with all the dirt. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone..nor for the price and not even the quality.

    The food is terrible . Flies on food . The room was not cleaned once in 5 days . No beds made . Cracks in walls .ceilings . No hairdryer . Take all your own soaps . Dryer . No tea coffee maker . I had to pay for tap water which was warm and the woman put the money in her bra . The guy on nights was the only helpful guy . The rest of the staff are horrible and rude . The blonde waitress has a boyfriend that lurks about and all they do is kiss when your having rubbish breakfast . Ate hardly anything . Go out to the Mall it's 2 mins away . For the Grand Prix . Though we moved hotels . The polus charge 30 / 40 euro . Each way . It's 20 mins to get to circuit . But add a lot more time for queues on day of f1. Get the 8e bus to town centre and Budapest is awsum . The pool at polus is full of kids . So didn't go in .cost 1euro . Did not see bowling ally . It's an old hotel which I don't even suggest for the Grand Prix . Get a different hotel . Parking is 4 Euro a day as is wifi . Food is bad . No care . The mattresses are stinking . Felt dirty getting out of bed . Awful and smelly as were the pillows . Which weren't even pillows . Just cloth in cases . No joke .We changed hotels to the burg in the castle . Totally amazing in comparison .

    Came here for the grand prix . But dates changed to week after . But we had already planned the break and would have lost £2000 .so we still came and extended our stay and changed hotels . The mall was good and get the bus to town centre . We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights . Just survived it . It's a cheap hotel and they don't want to make it nice or spend on it . The one staff was having an argument with another staff and no care .

    Rooms were untidy, beds dirty, bathroom a disaster, breakfast looked like some leftovers,...don`t recommend at all.

    The only advantage of this hotel for us was the location, as our business partner has its headquarters really close.

    Worst experience ever. Booking.com should re evaluate this member. It deserves not even 1 star. In the bathroom pubic hair all over, bad small and broken shower pipe. The price on booking reservation was 55€, i paid 69€, great syncro booking.com!!!!! I asked for one matrimonial bed, i got 3 single beds. I will reconsider using booking.com after this experience. No further comments on this s&€t hole of Polus 3 star hotel.....

    We stayed there only for one night, otherwise we would search for something else. Quite dirty, I even saw cockroaches, the bed shits were washed but fullof yellow spots. We didn't really like the breakfast but this depends on each person taste. Don't recommend!!

    I would suggest it only if you need a place for a few hours and save some money. I don't have any good thing.
