Couldn't get any better location wise. Right in the centre of the city and Main Street vaci utca. Although we know to steer away from the expensive touristy vaci utca, we still reckoned it was a pretty good location for a city hotel. Close to all attractions we wanted to see, gellert hill, market hall, chain bridge, parliament, veli bej....

Really a beautyful hotel, in the center of the center of Pest. Near the Metro, near the river Duna, near the Central Market, near the Hard Rock Cafè, what would you ask more? Breakfast? Excellent! Budapest? Really beautiful!

In Budapest it does not exist a place more central than this hotel; for this reason it's the perfect choice to visit Budapest during a week end. From Vaci Utca each part of the city is easy to reach with the underground, with the tram or simply walking. Great breakfast with a view on the street. Rooms are clean but...

What a disappointment this hotel was. Despite the outstanding location, the hotel smelled old and like smoke. It didn't feel clean and the rooms were dark. I think the location drives the popularity and the price point. I am certain there are better finds in this great city.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
