Nice Hotel in Budapest very close to the central Market, young and well mannered personnel. Our Room was too little for five persons and without enought space for clothes and luggages!
Besides the 5 times false fire alarms in the middle of the night. Our stay here was great, we booked 2 nights extra and it had a great kitchen.
Everyone was very kind and we enjoyed our time in the hotel
I've stayed at Meininger hotels elsewhere, and this is why I chose this one. I knew it will be clean and the bed sheets will be soft and the pillows will be comfortable, and that there will be laundry
Nice location near the city centre and Gellert hill, basic breakfast, clean room but it stank a little bit.
Our room wasn’t clean during our stay , and the breakfast was okay but very limited to what choice there was.
Everything perfect, large rooms, tidy and well located hotel. My only disappointment was the guest kitchen. There were not enough plates, glasses and cutlery. No pen to write the details on the food
The process of parking is unfair, booking says 20€ but in reality customers pays much more. You lie to customer.

Great Market Hall neighborhood was once an area mainly devoted to industrial work but it has subsequently been transformed into a cool and chic neighborhood with artistic works, cosy cafes and great restaurants- this is why we chose to base MEININGER Budapest Great Market Hall here! On the banks of the River Danube, there is so much to see and do locally you may not feel the need to venture that far out at all! The local neighborhood has some of the most fascinating museums in the entire city including the Holocaust Memorial Center, a 1920s synagogue serving as a memorial for Hungarian Jewish Holocaust victims, and the Ludwig Museum which displays great modern works of art. Those looking to party in the evenings have the option of Budapest Park nightclub nearby. There is also the Budapest Music Center literally right next to the MEININGER Budapest Great Market Hall which puts on some great live shows.
The Great Market Hall itself (the best of the fresh food markets in the whole city) is an attraction that should be on top of the list: the abundance and mix of spices, fruits and vegetables and salty cuts of meats create a hectic and heavenly ambience that is unforgettable for a traveler. The local foods and ingredience such as Hungarian Paprika and Langos, as well as the interaction between traders and customers, create an experience unique to Budapest and this has to be felt in person!
In terms of the surrounding areas, there are some fantastic options to visit. Népliget, which is known as "People´s Park", containing statues and a planeterium is just to the east. Józsefváros, the 8th district of Budapest is right next to us, as well as the Inner City and Palace District. Across the Danube there is the Gellért-Hegy area and the neighborhood of Lágymányos which is part of the district of Újbuda.
