The location is amazing - at the foot of the Buda Castle Hill. a three minute walk to Elizabeth Bridge, an 8 minute walk to Chain Bridge, and a block off the Danube. The service was just as good. Cooked to order omelettes for breakfast and a front desk staff that were very attentive and even provided shuttle to the...

When I think back to my stay with Hotel Orion Varkert only these words come to mind; clean, helpful, polite, good catering and what a convenient location. My boyfriend and I stayed with this hotel from the 31st of March until we left on the 3rd of April, a relatively short stay. We arrived in Budapest for the first time...

I went here with a friend and we had a nice stay. The place was basic but the beds were comfy! We didn't have breakfast included and last day when we checked out, we kinda wish we did. The owner graciously gave us a few croissants and a banana! 😀 The elevator was super small but it worked, lol! This...

This is tiny, but fancy hotel at a great place in the side of the Buda Castle and just a few minutes from city centre. Reasonable prices, great and friendly staff who not saving a single word from helping you find the best places in Budapest :) 24/7 reception, but unfortunately not supporting SZÉP cards for payments.

A few stops with the tram will take you from the hotel to a Metro Station. The Hotel is located os a quiet street. You can...

We spent 3 nights last week at this lovely little hotel, the staff were so helpful and the breakfast was excellent. It's in a really good location next to the Elizabeth bridge on the Buda side, but easy walking distance over to the Pest side.

We spent 3 nights at this delightful little hotel on the Buda side of the Danube. Excellent location, right by Elizabeth Bridge. The rooms were very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Great breakfast included in our deal. We would highly recommend the Hotel Orion Vakert.

Stayed for 4 nights Monday-Friday on a city break with my partner. On arrival we realised I had accidentally booked the room for one person not two but the receptionist was fine about it, they amended the room rate and it was only an extra 10 euros per night so this was fine (total cost came to just over £200...

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
