It has a small kitchenette, a boon I must say. After more than a few extractions I was unable to bite and chew for a few days. I was grateful to...

I stayed at the hotel for eight nights and enjoyed the attention of staff at all times. Desk staff and restaurant staff were always helpful, and the few problems I encountered are quickly resolved. The hotel is located in Buda, but on several bus routes, with stops right outside the hotel, so that it is easy to get into or...

We loved this hotel. Old fashioned big room, clean, even a small kitchen. The staff is super friendly and the hotel does a great buffet breakfast. We stayed here 8 nights and the bus to the city stops right in front of the hotel. Dinner here is good too. We would stay here again.

The room is just right to the price. Very helpful staff. I liked the room because its a little bit old fashioned and i like that. The place has a small shopping centre not far from the hotel. Nice place to stay value for money.

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.
