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.

Me and my wife spent 3 nights in the hotel and we were very satisfied with the place. Quiet and peaceful place and very clean. The location is not that far from the downtown core and there is a bus that leaves you on Vaci Utca. The staff were very nice and helpful providing tour and bus tickets at a... More

We have just had four nights at the Hotel Pension Helios Budapest. What a great place for us, four Seniors, to explore the city. The bus stop was just a five minute walk away and with all transport free for our age group (show your passport) we were able to use bus, boat, tram and underground. The hotel was a... More

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
