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.

First of all I have to say that the staff is really great and kind. Rooms are old style so the judgement for the furniture is low but the room is comfortable and I always slept well there. They have an excellent restaurant.

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.
