One of the best location, friendly staff and value for money, I really recommend to everyone. The Elit is a great stay to see beautiful Budapest. If you want a comfortable clean bed in a spacious room, good WiFi connection and be in a central location to see all the famous sites, look no further than the Elit. Loved it....

I arrived to Budapest only for two days. I choose Hotel Elit because of the location - near Keleti Railway Station and metro station (M2 and M4). It's the fastest way to get to the city centre.

Elit hotel is located by Keleti railway station and placed on a great location not far from metro, tram and bus stations.

Five minutes from Keleti station, and around 20-25 minutes from the city centre, this hotel is located at the back of a pub. The staff inside are very friendly and helpful, and we were checked in within a few minutes of arrival. There's no lift, so getting the luggage upstairs was tricky after a long day of travel, but luckily...
