Hotel is very nice if to compare the level of service and attitude of the staff and the price for the stay. The rooms are old and a bit old fashioned, but big enough and clean. The work of the personnel gives the spirit of a luxury place to stay at

Very good location - bus stops near the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff, speeking english. They try to help you with anything you ask. You can buy on the reception tickets for an excursion on a bus, boat or Sicheni bath - the price is the same like anywhere. Perfect breakfast - for any taste. Parking inside the courtyard.... More

We've stayed at Charles Hotel for 3 nights with my girlfriend. It was great pleasure to be there. The stuff was extremely friendly and helpful. I had a plan to propose during our visit in Budapest and they helped me a lot. I've chosen the flowers and sent them a photo via email. They arranged everything in a perfect way.... More

Very spacious room, clean and quiet. Bus stop on the other side of the road. Excellent public transport and they sell tickets at the hotel. Friendly staff. Good value for money. The only negative point is we had two small duvet instead of a large one, some couple might like that ahah. Restaurant and service 5*!!! I recommend the Angus... More

We struggled to find this hotel upon arriving in Budapest, confusing it with another accomodation that calls itself 'Apartment Charles' and another address where the road name was the same, but the district was different. Actually it is super easy to get to! Just get the 112 or 8 bus direct from the main rail station, ride it across the... More

Charles Hotel is on the Buda side, but only about 5 minutes away from the city center. The bus stop is right in front, so it is very convenient. It is within walking distance to Castle Hill.

Situated near the top of Gellert Hill but downtown Pest is just a 5 minute bus ride away. The bus stop is at the hotel door and buses are every few minutes. I stayed here twice in September, the room overlooking the courtyard was quieter. Room was clean and comfortable, staff are very helpful. Restaurant is also very good.
