“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

My mom and I stayed in Helios Pension for 5 nights, and we loved the place!
We had booked the studio, which was very convenient for us.
The room is huge, with the possibility to cook a (simple) meal.
The view on the city is amazing!
It's on the Buda site, and it's located in a very quiet area, surrounded by lilac trees, which fragance was lovely!
It only takes 20 minutes by bus to get to the city centre.
George, Szilvia and Agnes are great, and so is Esther, the lovely owner of the pension.
Every evening we had a delicious dinner in the restaurant nearby (Barracosca, or something like that), for a very reasonable price. Around 5 euro for a main dish, and 70 ct for a glass of wine!
We loved our stay in Budapest, and especially our stay in Helios Pension.
I can recommend this pension to everyone, and I will definately return to this great place!
Esther, Agnes, Szilvia and George, Köszönet minden gondját! Ti nagyok (I hope I have the right translation....;o) ).

The hotel was in a nice and quiet part of town, only a block away from the number 8 bus that takes you all the way downtown in fifteen minutes. The staff was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and great at english! Neighbouring gardens are beautiful and if you get the room we were in, E2, you'll get a spectacular view over most of budapest. We spent nights 1-6 here and night #7 we ended up at a four star airport hotel in vesces. But i liked helios panzio far more, and at a fraction of the cost. If and when i return to budapest I'll make sure to stay at hotel pension helios again :)

Room Tip: I'm sure most rooms are great, but the one called E2 must have had the best view.

The Pension Helios is a beautiful home-like setting with an expansive view across the city. The best part of the stay, however, is Agnes, who told us everything we needed to know to tackle Budapest, including maps, bus tickets, and more. The location is not downtown, but the city bus takes you directly in on a short ride. We were very pleased at the ease of it all- and the great
English spoken there! Thanks for all the help- we hope to visit again!

We were 5 days in Helios. Our apartament had 2 bedroom, kitchen ang bathroom. Room was clean and tidy. We had access to the big terrace. Near our studio was small lake in which lived frog and there is a playground for child. At 5 minuts from this hotel we can walk a bus stop which drived the central Budapest. Also near Helios is small shop and restaurant. The parking in front of Hotel is all the time guarded. If I coming back to Budapest I certaily staying the Hotel Helios. Staff in reception was friendly. Hello everybody and special for Mr. reception, which was very very friendly, helpfull and talkative. Great! Family from Poland.

Room Tip: A2 light room ang big.

The Helios is in Buda removed from the comings and goings of Pest. They serve a good and basid Breakfast. The facility is clean, rooms are large and there is a play ground for children. Your fellow guests are from all over Europe and it is a delight to talk with them.

The only negative, no lunch or dinner is served and you will need Reception to engage a taxi for you. City Taxi has reduced fares for guests at Helios Pension Hotel.

Room Tip: Stay at this facility when visiting Budapest.
