Hotel Charles outdid our expectations. The staff were incredibly helpful and did more than enough to make our stay comfortable. We originally had booked a standard room without air conditioning but as it was so hot in July, we asked to upgrade to a better room for an extra 10 euros a night. It was definitely worth it!

My family love this hotel and we used to stay every time when we are in Budapest. This was our third time.

This hotel is not situated at the citycenter. So you have to take the bus (but the bus station of line 8 and 112 is in front of the hotel) if you don`t travel by car. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and the accommodation definitely worth thy money. Would stay there again!

We have arrived and first impressions did not help. After settling down we went to the town Centre. Day by day thinks improved. Excellent value for money considering very good bus system (8 and 112) takes you to main points in the city in 5 minutes. The hotel is with god and average rooms. Select one on the top floor....

Situated on the Buda side of the city which is the quieter side but only a 5 min bus ride away from the livelier Pest side.

We visited Budapest in April, 2014. The hotel is located 10 min away from main tourist section by bus. Extremely friendly, helpful staff, and clean big bedrooms are its main strengths. Furthermore, its really a bargain compared to other hotels, even hostels in central eastern europe. Take into account: you need to take a bus to get into pest, though... More
