Yup, Ryan James wrote Frommer's Budapest & the Best of Hungary. How amazing to stay with an expert on the city: from places to see, hidden treasures to find, Ruin Bars (the trendiest of restaurants), how things work here, etc! Ryan & Ron's home is so welcoming, on the fourth floor of an older building in a historical area WITH... More

I could not have asked for a better stay at BudaBab. The apartment was big, bright, clean, and cozy and I felt immediately at home. It was also in the perfect location and I was able to walk anywhere I wanted to go. The immediate neighborhood (the Jewish Quarter( is rich with bars, restaurants, cafes, and endearing book shops, and... More

We loved staying at Buda BandB. Ryan and Rob are the consummate hosts - generous and thoughtful. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and to help us to explore their beautiful city. The apartment is filled with interesting mementos from their own travels - each with its own story. We stayed in the larger... More

My friend and I recently stayed at the BudaBaB for 3 nights. Ron and Ryan were great hosts! They provided us with great suggestions on places to eat, the Budapest nightlife and sites to see. We also enjoyed relaxing messages at the bed and breakfast. The BudaBaB is very centrally located in the Jewish quarter near many historical landmarks, shops,... More

Even though the rooms are spacious and the high ceilings give things a "grand" feeling, the best things about BudaBaB are the location and the hosts (although the modern, and VERY roomy, shower also set it apart from most European accommodations). Rooms are clean and bright, but can be completely darkened with wooden slatted blinds. There was some street noise,... More

The location was excellent with just a few minutes walk from Blaha Lujza ter metro station. Ryan and Jack were the only and the most friendly staffs ever. They provide useful tourist information and city maps. Breakfast was good. My two-nights stay in BudaBaB was a great experience.
