“Perfect place to stay for seeing the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Ideal downtown location, a short walk to public transport and many restaurants, shops and attractions. Very clean and comfortable, large rooms. I came on a busy weekend for Kata, but she was still very helpful with directions to her favorite restaurants (not good for the waistline ; ), doing laundry and organizing cheap transport to the airport. Always with a smile, my only regret is that there wasn't more time to talk with Kata about Budapest and Hungary. This guesthouse is a fantastic value and I heartily recommend staying here.

Had to spend one night in a hotel so I booked this online . Arrived around 10 am the same day and the room was ready for me . I was expecting to have to wait a bit for the room to be ready but luckily everything was set . The place is very clean and Kate is really helpful . I forgot to book a taxi to the airport and I called her at 4 am and 10 minutes later the taxi was outside waiting .
There is a internet place next door if you need to print your plane tickets .
I only stayed one night but I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Budapest on a budget .

At the guest house you have the use of a shared bathroom with two showers two sinks and shaving point. There are two separate toilets. All are kept impeccably clean. For €4 each you will receive a hearty continental breakfast that will send you on your way to explore Budapest. There is a guest fridge. You have access to free wifi. Many brochures and city guides. McD's close if you have kids. Other local food vendors are available. Some awesome Turkish meals. A taxi to the airport from Kate's should cost around 3,600 florins if she books it for you. The zoo is a great place to go and see the hippo's and rhinos and big cats were amazing. There are many attractions to see. Visit heroes square which is 3km walk from Kate's. There are many trams outside Kate's and the large metro station is maybe 5 minutes walk away.

Her children were fantastic and well behaved and were very helpful in telling us places to go and see. They all spoke excellent English. Kate was most helpful in securing a taxi back to the airport saving us nearly half in price for what it would have cost should we have done it ourselves. Its a simple dwelling but I've stayed at many 5 star complexes/spas and guesthouses that had less friendly and attentive staff. She has only been open less than a year so she can only improve. If you want something close to the centre that will be really cost effective thus giving you the ability to see more then pop and see Kate.

I would have loved the ability to pay by card. There are many bank machines and banks nearby however.

Great location with Metro station and tram stop being 5 minutes walk away. Kate provided a fantastic spread for breakfast (recommended). Kate is the kindest 'landlady', her children have the best manners and are extremely helpful, truly a 'home from home'. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Budapest and Kate Guesthouse played a big part in that. When I go back to Budapest I will definitely want to stay here. Free wifi and internet available.
Travelled with a friend as 2 singles.

Room Tip: The noise from the tram line could be intrusive for light sleepers.

Kate guesthouse is close to the city centre with a very good location in pest. Kate was very nice and helpful and made my stay enjoyable. The guesthouse was clean and I felt welcome with free tea and coffee. I would also reccommend the buffet breakfast.
