Innkeeper Victor is a perfect, accommodating host with excellent knowledge of Budapest and surrounding areas. His B & B is clean, convenient and unique. I would not hesitate to recommend Budavar to anyone seeking off-the-beaten path and charming accommodations. It's been a pleasure staying there.

We stayed three nights in this B&B, beginning of May 2015, and we really appreciated our stay. The room was clean, very quiet, comfortable and rather big, with a balcony. We had the room in the ground floor, so with no view, but the rooms in the higher levels have a view on the parliament. The building is perfectly situated,... More

I had a great stay here. The B&B is in a quiet area--I slept well, a rare thing for me in hotels--and the views are beautiful. Viktor is a helpful host who can answer all your questions about Budapest. I only have a couple of small suggestions regarding possible improvements. As a vegetarian, I need my bread to be nourishing,... More

Budavar is located on a quiet street in Buda hill with stunning views over Pest. The manager Viktor will help you out with whatever you need. Rooms are tidy and the breakfast of simple but honest fare.

I've just returned from a lovely long weekend stay at the Budavar. It is in a great location on the Buda side, nestled under Fisherman's Bastion and a mere 5 minute hike up the hill from a metro stop. Our room was clean, spacious and traditional, with a double balcony looking up at the very pretty Fisherman's Bastion. Viktor was... More

I stayed here for a quick business trip and can thoroughly recommend it. It is a bit of hike up a hill from the Buda riverside, but I like the exercise. Excellent views from the window and very easy access to castle hill.

I have just spent 10 days at Budavar Pension B&B and it's a marvelous place! Located just below the Fishermens Bastion and Buda Castle. Quiet and clean room and the nicest and freliest inn-keeper Victor. Breakfast with everyting you need and fresh eggs in the morning. Close to everything you want to see in Budapest with a 10 min walk... More

I am so glad that we found this little gem! The Buda side of the river is certainly the crowning glory of a beautiful city and the Budavar Pension, nestled beneath the Fisherman's Bastion is the perfect place to rest your sleepy head after a long day of exploration. We had a superior room which was huge. Our bed was... More

I stayed at the Budavar Pension for four nights and I have no complaints. Viktor is a great host and the place has a homey feel to it. We actually arrived early on our first day to drop off our bags and Viktor invited us to have breakfast. Breakfast is free every morning, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and... More

This was a perfect place to spend a few days sightseeing. Viktor was so kind - he had sent me directions from the metro and was a very welcoming host. It is wonderfully located - very near the Fisherman's Bastion and Castle region - in a quiet area and yet within easy walking distance of Buda and Pest. The room... More
