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.

Budapest is a wonderful city and BudaBaB is an outstanding bed and breakfast. I just returned from a week staying at Ryan and Ron's beautiful apartment, where my adult son and I were treated like royalty and provided with numerous tips that contributed to the quality of our visit. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed, the living room area is filled... More

Ryan and Ron are the perfect hosts to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The apartment is beautifully arranged and has a lovely vibe- the high ceilings and wide doors give it a feeling of elegance and grandeur yet it has so much character and warmth which instantly makes you feel at home.

BudaBaB is simply a place that feels like home to me. Ron and Ryan are welcoming and they will provide advice on where to go and what to see--Ryan literally wrote the book on this (Frommer's guide to Budapest). Or, if you're in the mood to be left alone and quietly just hang out in the neighborhood, using this place... More
