Review: T62 Hotel, Budapest, Hungary

This review details my stay at the T62 Hotel, a funky design hotel right opposite Nyugati railway station in Budapest, Hungary.

One night in Budapest

After a hellish Ryanair flight I found myself in the Hungarian capital of Budapest.

As much as I love Budapest, the city would only be a stopover this time on my way to the Czech Republic.

Given the fact that I had an early train departure from Budapest’s Nyugati Railway Station, I went looking for a hotel close to the train station.

Of all the available hotels, T62 Hotel seemed like the best choice, having good ratings and an excellent location directly opposite Nyugati Station.

From the airport, it was a relatively straightforward trip by bus and metro to reach Nyugati Station.

For my one-night-stay at the T62 Hotel I had booked a “large double room” for 75 euro, a rate which included breakfast.

Check-in was swift which was great as all I wanted was to go to bed as soon as possible in order to maximise my sleep.

Both in the reception area as well as in the corridors of this Budapest design hotel you will notice the highly expressive and colourful murals.

T62 Hotel room review

My large double room did indeed turn out to be quite spacious.

It had a comfortable double bed, a desk as well as a seating corner with one large sofa and two chairs placed around a coffee table.

A kettle and complimentary tea and coffee were placed on the desk.

The room also featured air-conditioning, a flat screen TV and plenty of power sockets at convenient places such as the desk and directly above the bedside tables.

Alongside the hallway you can find a large closet with a built-in storage safe.

I certainly liked the design of the room as it felt contemporary but still warm and homely thanks to the large curtains and wooden elements.

The floor-to-ceiling pictures in black-and-white of Buda Castle (behind the couch) and Matthias Church (behind the desk) also brought some distinctive Budapest vibes into the room of this design hotel.

From the windows of my room I had a great view over Nyugati Station as well as the station square.

Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the room as apart from the neat design it was also clean and comfortable.

Just like the room itself, also the en-suite bathroom was neat and clean and it had all the amenities you might need.

Thanks to the different tiles on the walls and floors it felt bright and funky.

As I still had a couple of emails to send before I could finally go to sleep, I decided to head down to the bar with my laptop.

The T62 hotel bar is located right next to the reception desk and at this late evening hour was staffed by the receptionist himself.

The hotel bar was certainly the most colourful and uniquely designed part of the hotel.

Although it had a contemporary design the hotel bar even mirrored some of the ruin bars for which Budapest is famous.

For a hotel bar, I certainly found it an enjoyable place to sit down with a beer.

Breakfast buffet

Each morning, breakfast is served in the room directly next to the hotel bar.

I thought the breakfast buffet at T62 Hotel was decent in both quality and quantity.

There are freshly baked breads and pastries, cheeses and cold cuts, eggs, hash browns and beans, cornflakes, as well as a small salad bar.

Coffee, hot water (for tea) and different kind of juices are provided by machines.

Budapest Nyugati Station is literally located right across the street from T62 Hotel.

To reach this train station, all you need to do is to simply walk over the pedestrian crossing to the other side of the street, which won’t even take you a minute.

This makes T62 Hotel ideal for those with an early train departure from Budapest Nyugati Station to destinations such as Bratislava, Prague and Berlin, which was the direction where I was heading this morning.

However, do check whether your train indeed departs from Nyugati Pályaudvar (the Hungarian word for station) and not from the other two main Budapest railway terminals of Keleti Pályaudvar and Deli Pályaudvar.

T62 Hotel also has a convenient location for those who are looking for a cool design hotel for their Budapest city trip, as city centre sights like the Parliament building and St. Stephen’s Basilica are just a 15-minute walk away.

T62 hotel review conclusion

T62 Hotel is a funky design hotel located directly opposite Budapest Nyugati Station and a stone throw away from the city centre.

It’s not only the convenient location that is a great about this hotel, as I certainly loved my spacious, well-designed and comfortable room.

Service was friendly throughout my stay and the breakfast buffet ensures that you have enough energy for a morning of sightseeing in Budapest or a train departure to destinations further afield.

Overall, I had a great stay at T62 Hotel and would certainly wouldn’t mind staying here again if the price is right.
