“Great hostess, breakfast, & location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

If you're in Budapest, this is the place to stay! Judit is such a kind and knowledgeable host. The rooms are clean, modern, comfortable, and big. We stayed in the "orange" room and it had two twin beds (easily pushed together to make a double), a sitting area with couch, chairs, and table, an office desk, a closet, and a nice sized bathroom. Everything was perfect!

We booked airport transfer through Judit, too, and her husband, Istvan, kindly picked us up despite our flight being delayed until 2200. Very accommodating and friendly, they are!

The only surprise was we thought breakfast was included (as it says on Trip Advisor) and we were charged 4 euro per person per day at check out. We didn't order any extras like eggs just took what was on the table...which was quite a selection...but we didn't mind as the breakfast was good and convenient.

I'll stay here again when in Budapest!

We actually had planned a 3 days’ trip to Budapest in March, which we thought is the beginning of spring. The reality was a bit different. Winter had returned, there was a blizzard and the day time temperatures went below the freezing point.

The more we were happy about the warm welcome in Judith’s guest house. The way from Keleti train station, where we arrived, to the guest house was easy to find thanks to the helpful trip advices we received via email prior to the trip. Judith provided us with a lot of tips about the points of interest and also the more hidden places.

The rooms are equipped with everything you need as a sightseeing tourist. Every room has its own bath room. We slept very well in the comfortable beds. There is free wifi, so that you can check your emails or retrieve infos about the city. All rooms are very clean.

Judith’s guest rooms are located in the centre of Pest in a quiet street. You actually can walk to most of the famous places. However, the public transportation system brings you to all areas of Budapest much faster. Metro and tram stations are nearby.

We liked the discussions with Judith who gave us some insight views into the Hungarian life. As Judith and her husband like trips to cities abroad they know what the needs of sightseeing tourists are. This is what you feel when you are a guest in Judith’s guest rooms.

We felt absolutely comfortable in Judith’s guest rooms and we are sure to stay there again during our next Budapest trip.

Stayed here for 2 nights in February 2013. We were looking for a small and homely hotel close to the city centre and this choice absolutely met our expectations. The rooms are nice, clean, cozy and well-equipped, and Judit, the owner couldn't be more friendly and helpful. We really appreciated her advice, tips, and the breakfast she prepared for us was pretty tasty. We would recommend this place to anyone who wants to try something different from ordinary hotel chains.

Stayed 3 nights, the staff especially Judith is very helpful, our room was absolutely clean with absolutely comfortable beds, offering free wi-fi and smart tv internet connection too. In the neighboring street found many restaurants and cafes my favorite was called Brody, a real local one. If again Budapest sure to book again here.

Stayed here for 1 night. I was looking for a place with ensuite bathroom but not expensive. This is basically someone's apartment and the rented out the rooms. In summary, it was an okay stay but I'd stay elsewhere if I'm ever coming back to Budapest.

Pro:
- Clean, quite modern
- Responsive host if contacted via email, good English
- Location is near tram and one stop away from nearest metro station
- Free sparkling water
- Good wifi

Cons:
- A bit difficult to find even with instruction, but once you know where it is, easy to go around
- The magnetic room card key failed few times for me. I had to try 6 times until it succeed. Its a bit scary as it was midnight that time and the host is living elsewhere. She said if there's anything just call her but tourist for 1 night like me would not bother purchasing Hungarian phone card and I'll have to use my origin country number which will makes it international call! Gah!
- I really had to go to the bathroom and there's no common bathroom at all beyond the private rooms (the host said). - doubt it tho because where would she go if she needs bio break? - think she has another toilet but guests were just not allowed to use it

If you find my review helpful, appreciate if you can press that helpful vote. Thanks!

Thank you for your staying with us and for your review. It helps us to develop to be better and better every day based on our guest requirements.
We are a small charmful B&B in a historical centre part of Budapest called Palace District behind National Museum and the famous Eötvös Lorand University.

What is fact we have no 24 hours reception as we have only 5 uniquely decorated very clean en-suit rooms with air-condition in a 100+ years old building.
However we always are here when our guests arrive as they notify us about their arrival time. We are here to serve their breakfast and we are here to clean the rooms and of course to help in any matter our guests signal to us. We also provide a phone number for emergency case where they can contact us any time and as we have here FREE WIFI connection.they are able to reach us cost effective way as well.

We have a safe door opening system used in hotels with chip card; to handle it easily you have to remember only few basic thinks what we carefully show to you step by step at your arrival time.

As our accomodation have only 5 rooms we have no separate toilet on the common area but naturally every room have own bathroom with private toilet .

In addition if you stay with us you can live here like a local does we provide friendly personal atmosphere and you will have more authentic holiday experience.

Stayed here between 5th and 10th September 2012. Great location for sightseeing, spotlessly clean rooms, lovely breakfast (great coffee, fruit, cheese, meats, yogurts, super breads, cakes!) and local inside knowledge from Judit who couldn't have been more helpful and spoke fluent English! What more can I say other than thank you Judit for a great introduction to Budapest. We shall be back to finish off the sightseeing we didn't do and to eat the cakes we didn't get to try!!!!!!

We had a really nice welcome and great advise for our our 1st visit at Budapest. The guesthouse is really well-situated, close to public transport.
Our room was really spacious, clean and comfortable. We were happy to be there for a rest after a huge day of visit.
Judith, the host, gave relevant advise which allows us to visit nice areas of Budapest.
