Hotel is nicely situated on the Buda side of the city, in one of the well to do areas. Very nice location if you like it quiet and somewhat remote from the city turmoil. By bus it takes only 20 minutes to get to the city centre and bus services run on a frequent schedule. The hotel has friendly and... More

We have just returned after staying six days at Helios Pension in Budapest. The Hotel is situated in the hills of Buda so it is lovely and peaceful at night. It only takes 20 minutes on the number 5 bus from the bottom of the road to Budapest City Centre and the buses run every 5-10 minutes all day and... More

This is a budget hotel with self catering facilities. The accommodation is fairly basic & probably in need of a bit of refurbishment. Having said that I found the beds comfortable & it was a good base for visiting central Budapest (25 minutes by bus). The big plus was the front desk staff who all spoke English & couldn't do...

The hotel seems to be a little far from the center of Budapest. But it's not the reality. A bus takes you in the heart of the city in 20mn. It's a very nice place to be after a day of visiting the city. You'll appreciate the calm and the kindness of the whole staff. We stayed four nights in... More

We've been there for 3 nights from the 25th to the 28th of this month. The hotel is located on a hill and it's about 15-20 minutes far from the city center (bus stop is near the hotel, you have to take nr. 8 bus to the city center). The room was clean, everything was serviceable and the staff was... More

If you enjoy nature and hiking, this is an ideal hotel for a stay in Budapest. Buda hills forests begin just behind the hotel (200m climb on 3km to get to the top) and there are lots of trails and places to visit like Erzsebet lookout at János-hegy, Children's railway etc. Hotel itself was good value and peacefull, everything was...

Located on the hills of Buda, the hotel is very quiet and comfortable with easy reach of Pest centre by bus (20 mins). The apartment was adequately furnished with an all equipped kitchenette, TV, free wifi etc. There was a spacious terrace at the back opening into a large garden. The whole staff team was brilliant, very friendly and helpful,... More

Hotel is situated on a Buda side, 20 minutes from the city center, but it has good connection with the downtown. You can leave your car in a hotel parking that is being secured and use public transportation. Hotel was clean, furniture is not new but it has been maintained very well, breakfast (6 euros per day per person) was... More

We felt like home at this hotel. The staff was very helpful and nice. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The WiFi worked very good. breakfast was hearthy and tasty. We used our own car to go the city centre, which is 15 minutes away. We would definetely return. Great place for a fmily with kids.
