We stayed with our kids for two nights at the star city hotel. The rooms were OK and so was the service. Generally fair value for money. It is a long walk from the rail station if you have big bags.

What we wanted was somewhere clean, safe and friendly to sleep whilst we were in Budapest. This hotel did all of those things well. The area is residential so is quiet and this is helped by the courtyard arrangement of the hotel. the room was a good size and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful with a good standard of...

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
