Across the street from the Franciscan Church, Leo Panzio is an off-the-beaten-path-finder's dream. It's an easy bus ride from the Budapest-Keleti train station. We almost missed the inconspicuous entrance, but clear directions provided before we arrived helped us buzz through the large outer doors and a second stairwell door to behold a working vintage elevator; I felt like I'd stepped...

There is a metro station just in front of the hotel but if you like walking there are a lot of attractions that you can go on foot. Very nice and helpful staff. Nice breakfast. Good value for money...

Situated right on top of Keleti metro station. Very easy to reach from airport. Easy access to Hop on Hop off bus terminal 13 and 11 for green and pink line and river cruise dock 10. Walking distance from good restaurants. Supermarket right accross the street. Building might be old but rooms are spacious and clean. Very friendly staff. Hotel... More

I spent there 3 nights, it was comfortable, basically cheap (41 euro) comparing with the other hotels nearby, really-really center location, if You take a look at the Budapest map, its right in the middle of everything. Crew is friendly and smiley, breakfast is various, rooms are extreme clean. I really felt the familiar, cozy athmosphere. 5*

As in the title, the hotel didn't really have any facilities not even a lobby to sit and relax. Therefore when there you have to use the room which is very small. Couldn't even swing a kitten let alone a cat. We curtailed our stay and moved to a much better place just up the same road for not much... More

This hotel is located in a beautiful historic building - in a walking distance from railway station and its location is great for weekend getaway. Very near the bridge. I liked its athmosphere, rooms are small but very cosy. Only one little complain - I expected wider choice of breakfast, at least whole-grain option of bread instead of just white... More

It was a nice stay, crew is nice and friendly, the room is extreme clean, bed in comfortable, off-season rate is (41€ for single room) reasonable comparing with other hotels nearby, breakfast is good. Its just above a metro stop (Ferenciek), all touristically significant places are in walking distance. I hope i shall come back once... :)

We stayed here after our other accommodation fell through. The location is fantastic. Right in the center of Budapest and so easy to get to all the major sites. The hotel is clean and the rooms are a descent size also the security is great. The extra bonus of getting breakfast is also great. The rooms are slightly dated with... More

We arrived into central Budapest about 1.30 am after a late night flight from London, so our first impression of the hotel wasn't great. However the rooms were very comfortable and warm and the shower was very welcome so that was all we needed at that time of the morning. Next morning, we were very pleasantly surprised by the hotel.... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
