“A wonderful find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I stayed at the Budavar for 2 nights while in Budapest after cycling the Danube Trail. What a treat...Quiet yet the perfect location providing easy access to see the city. Just beneath the castle and down the hill towards the Danube. Depending on your room, you viewed the castle, or sit on the balcony and view the Danube, Parliament Buildings, churches - remarkable.
Victor was very friendly , accommodating , helpful and very knowledgable. The perfect place to be after an amazing cycling trip

If you want to experience the most relaxing, peaceful, refreshing time as I had, you should visit this small, cozy Pension in Budapest:
You can enjoy a mesmerizing view of the Fisherman's Bastion, the Hungarian Parlament, the Danube, and the Castle from your room, your balcony, and from the dining room. When you step on the balcony you feel you could spend the whole night there just feeling/admiring the beautiful and peaceful atmosphere of the night of Buda-Pest.
I am so glad, because I also met the friendliest, most helping/charming host ever:
Victor magicly reads your mind, he is unbelievebly friendly, so you feel like you've always known him and his town.
They provide you with such a wonderful breakfast, in their intimate dining room, that only your mother could've prepared for you... great selection of tasty Hungarian specialties (cheese, salami and freshly baked pastries!), coffee, eggs, juices.
You have to see and experience this to believe it!
ENJOY!

As others have already stated it must be one of the best kept secrets in the travel industry. I stayed for 4 nights in mid-April and was very pleased with the accommodations and great service. Viktor was a gracious host always ready to answer my questions about Budapest.

Was also very pleased with the arrangement of a taxi to and from the
airport.

Hope to return next spring with the wife!!

Room Tip: The superior rooms are worth every bit of the extra cost!!

Viktor was a wonderful host for the four nights we stayed with him. His response to e-mails when making the booking was always prompt. When we arrived, he had maps of Budapest ready for us and even tickets for our first use of the Metro. He had apologized for our room being a bit small, but the view we had of the Parliament Building more than made up for that. It is conveniently positioned near to the St Mathias Church area, where there are plenty of eateries and also only about ten minutes to the Metro. If we were to visit Budapest again, this is where we would come to stay.

Room Tip: Room 5 has one of the best views

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Budavar Pension in Budapest. Viktor, the propreitor, was very helpful and nice. The room we stayed in had a spectacular view of the Parliament building which is even prettier at night all lit up. It also had a balcony to sit out on to enjoy the view. It's a perfect location - sitting right below the Castle on the Buda side. Very easy to use the No. 16 bus to the castle district and then walk down the hill to the Pension. Very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was ample. Overall, a wonderful place to stay while in Budapest.

The Budavar is located on a quiet charming street. Our room (#3) has a fantastic view of the Parliament and rooftop of the neighborhood. The bathroom is small, but very clean. The bed is comfortable and the neighborhood is very quiet at night. We walked home every night around 11:00pm and felt safe here. The breakfast is adequate. Viktor, the Innkeeper, is very friendly and helpful. The price is very reasonable for everything you get.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room #3 (third floor) with a view of the Parliament and quiet. It's good for couples wi...

Close to The Buda Castle and the green area surrounding it, I heard the birds singing in the mornings, it has the calm of the countryside, yet is located near all cityfacilities. A comfortable huge rom with bathroom and balcony - helpful owner providing tickets for spa & sightseeing,
Breakfast included - and the price: very reasonable indeed! The combination simplicity and perfection is a winner in my world of travel! A perfect and homely stay!
