Small hotel with very helpful staff. We hadn't included breakfast in our booking but they let us add it when we arrived and we were glad we did. On the Buda side which is hilly it is at the river (though not really a river view). That made crossing to the Pest side an easy walk.

Located on the Buda side of the city this is a great little hotel which we would highly recommend. The staff were very helpful, and all spoke English very well and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was large and had everything we needed to use it as a base for our visit to Budapest. One small criticism is...

Great hotel in Buda close to the Elisabeth bridge and about 10 minutes walk to the funicular that takes you up to the old Castle area. Quiet with only one bar nearby but only a short walk over the bridge into bustling Pest. Good clean room and very good buffet breakfast

OK, so not the poshest of places, for us Brits think of a slightly European travelodge... but... Great friendly service, nice breakfast, nice family feel... well placed as dispite on Buda side, it's 5 mins walk from the Elizabeth bridge... But, best of all was the price! Less than £60 for two nights!!

Spent 3 nights here with my daughter in this 3* hotel whilst visiting Budapest. Thought the hotel was lovely, very clean, good size room, bathroom a bit small but adequate. Staff were extremely polite and helpful! Buffet breakfast with cereal, yoghurts, croissants, bread rolls, cold meats cheeses, etc. Hotel was situated in the old town which was perfect. To me...

We booked this hotel thru European Destinations and were not disappointed..its just across the Elizabeth Bridge in a quiet little section with little street traffic. Its perfectly situated near Buda Castle and various other attractions, we were happy to walk over to the Pest side daily to sightsee over there, but there are several other means of transport (bus, tram,...

I can't say much about the hotel, because I didn't stay there since when I arrived from the airport coming from Colombia at midnight and with our luggage, a very friendly guy told us that we didn't have room, and they had arrange another place to stay. We had booked to rooms. The other place was quite strange, with no...

We stayed at this hotel at the end of November, beginning of December, traveling by personal car. The hotel is situated relatively in the city center (10-15 minutes to the city center by walking). The rooms are ok, with enough space and clean. The bath is small, but also it was ok. At breakfast they don't give too many possibilities:...

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.
