Finding a hotel for a city you have never visited is always a risky business, and at the time we intended driving, so needed a place we could park the car easily. Helios responded to emails immediately and gave very helpful information. It was also very reasonably priced, so, as they say, it was a no-brainer. In the end we... More

It was a lovely experience with Helios Hotel and their really friendly and helpful staff. Very easy to get to and from the city. All the facilities were in order. Nice view from a balcony, although quite noisy neighbours, but there is no fault of the hotel. The only minus is a floor in the room, it wasnt swept. But... More

The room and bathroom were clean. All the staff were very friendly, Aggie made us feel welcome straight away and gave us some information on getting around and things to see. The hotel itself is outside of central Budapest so the location is quiet. To reach Budapest by bus takes 15mins, the bus stops are 300m down the road and... More

We are a family of five and sometimes find it a little difficult to find suiting accomdation. But there was plenty of room in the appartment. 15 min from city centre by bus. Very nice garden with a little playground. Quiet area, friendly staff. Very recommendable.

It's always interesting to re-visit some places for me. You see things in new light, mentioned something you have not mentioned before. That's amazing. The hotel got even better this time than before. Easy to explain: things I mentioned first time remained, some new and good - were discovered. I'd like to mention Personnel hospitality, because the Team is just... More

If you want to choose the hotel in Budapest take "Helios", will not regret. The ideal place, adequate service, best option, sensitive service personnel... I do not know what else to say? One word - come!

We had an enjoyable stay at Helios and wanted somewhere quiet. Being on the Buda side, overlooking the city which is a 20min bus ride away (No.8), the buses are frequent and a short walk to the pension tolerable. There is a local shop for essentials and restaurant. Bring your own tea/coffee as, even in rooms a kettle is provided.... More

For the price you pay at Helios you could easily get a closer hostel near to the center of downtown. I paid the same amount as a fellow traveler, who stayed near to the main metro intersection stop, had breakfast included, and a much more comfortable bed. It's a decent place but given the unhelpful instructions on navigating the public... More

My boyfriend and I spent five nights at the place and we loved it. It is a quick, direct bus ride away from the city centre and the neighbourhood is beautiful. The hotel is quiet and cosy, while the staff are nice and very helpful.
