Room and facilities were great plus it is in the heart of the Jewish quarter so walking distance from many great sites and underground stations for things further afield. Staff were very friendly and helpful and it's a been beautifully restored with lovely copper finishes - felt very luxurious yet was extremely... More

Had an incredibly pleasant stay here. Staff were very nice and helpful at all times. The rooftop pool and indoor spa area was amazing, especially given the extreme weather. There could be more sun loungers by the pool but that is my only criticism. The rooms were great, everything we could need (except maybe more mirrors) Would definitely return to... More

This is a good choice for visiting Budapest. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was quite tasty, but you often had to wait quite some time for a free table. We booked this hotel, because it had an outside pool. The pool area was beautiful, but unfortunately the weather... More

We were stunned by the facade and the lobby of this hotel. Entering the hotel room, we were still surprised at every detail and amenity offered. The breakfast in the hotel was excellent, too. And the location is perfect for sightseeing in Budapest.

The room was quiet and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The building itself has lovely art deco features. Best thing was the location though - close to the train station (we were on an inter-rail trip) - and right in the middle of the Jewish neighbourhood which has tons of great restaurants and bars. You can experience great... More

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighborhood 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.
