District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.

La vista era così bella che ho sempre dormito con le tende aperte
Hi, Yes to all. Hairdryer is in the bathroom and we had cabin baggage only so used it - it was fine. Iron is in the wardrobe and fridge also in room.

The rooms with a view on the river side of the hotel cost almost double all the other rooms in the hotel. Because you really don't spend much time in the room don't waste your money on a view!! The hotel is so centrally located everything is a short walk from the hotel and easy for a family.

Hi. We booked private transfers with our operator but I'm sure the hotel can arrange. They are very good. Also there are always lots of taxis parked within 30M of the hotel. Enjoy! Graham

I was there in July and it was hotter than what the internet said was “average.” Put Budapest in your Weather app and keep checking.
