You will be fine, mate! :)

District 8 (where Prater Residence is) is not the nicest area of Budapest, however they did some improvements lately. This hotel is right next to a newly built apartmenthouse-plaza complex (Corvin Setany) so you will not notice that the area has some history. Also, you will be pretty close to the Boulevard (Körút) which is a very lively street. By tram 4-6 you can rich pretty much everything around: shops, restaurants, museums etc. Corvin setany even has a metro station, so getting around will be easy

I think it is a good choice in an okay area. Go for it!

If you want something more traditional and a bit safer go for something in district 6 or 5. But Budapest is a safe city overall.

Hi Nissan, as I recall from this thread you are coming with a toddler, so I would not advise that neighbourhood, if you have not made up your mind yet.

In this thread, you got some ideas for hotels, but you can use them as guidance for the location too:

I would recommend getting an apartment or hotel room somewhere at Szabadsag ter on the Pest side, or near Szent István park. The former will be more expensive, the latter cheaper, but both are good locations with many things to do with a 2.5 year old kid (Szabadsag ter is actually a park with 2 playgrounds). You could ask some mums here too:
