Finding a place to stay near Vorosmarty ter is definitely worthy. The place is unique, offering both walking roads (leading to the city's south ex. market hall) and the terminal of Budapest's metro line 1, which leads till Szechenyi, and all kind of shops across the streets (shopping, food, entertainment). The place is definitely the "good area" of Pest's city centre and staying there is one of the safest options.
However, the "night life" of Budapest's locals (buying drinks from markets and consuming them in squares) might frighten some people, even though it's actually a "classic" across most of the Buadpest squares, during night times (00:00-03:). Vorosmarty square probably has the least chances of unpleasant experiences.

This place is near Erzsébet, Deák Ferenc square and Váci street, so if you are tired from the shops you can relax here. You can have a cake and coffee in the famous Gerbeaud confectionery. (It's expensive!) In the middle there's a statue composition: Mihály Vörösmarty was one of the most famous Hungarian poet. Before Christmas you can visit the traditional Christmas market, too.

I visited Vorosmarty Square multiple times during my recent visit as it was at walking distance from my Intercontinental Hotel. A beautiful square commemorating the poet Mihaly Vorosmarty, it's also junction of Vaci Street and Fashion Street while also hosting the Gerbeaud Cafe and an underground station. A monument around shopping area is always welcome, a double deal.

Warning! Do not buy street food here! The setting was attractive, with layers of local food simmering and nicely displayed. The sight and smell was mouth-watering. Cooking in a large paella pan was part of the show too. Lots of tourists, including me, fell for it, Today, it cost me HUF12000 (or EUR40 or USD51) for 3 dishes of third-class shopping-mall-grade fast food plates - Chicken with Spaghetti and Pork with Rice! They charge by weight. At lunch, when I ate, it was HUF450/10 dKg (100gm.). That was very expensive. At dinner, it was even worst at HUF600/100gm. So be warned, and check prices before you buy. Good luck.

Do not buy street food here. Smiling servers pile the food high on large plates and only at the end do you find out that it is charged by weight. They wanted huf 15,000 for badly cooked chicken andtastless potatoes and onion and two soft drinks.They kept piling on pickles even although we did not want any. We paid about a third of this price at a restaurant the night before and had drinks and steak.
I think the place on the square was called Kavarli Grill or something like that .Avoid at all costs.

This is a central square in Budapest, which somehow lost its glamour, despite the months-long renovations.

This square is named after the writer Mihály Vörösmarty, who was famous for his romantic poems, plays and patriotic songs. A beautiful statue adorns this square showing the poet surrounded by figures of different classes of Hungary, like farmers, scholars and workers. This statue was erected in 1908. This square is also famous for several other reasons. The Christmas Market of Budapest is held here every year. It hosts the an old cafe' called Gerbeaud Café which was established in 1858. It also has the metro stop Vörösmarty tér leading to the millennium underground railway. The British Embassy is also located here. The Vigado Concert Hall is also located at one end. It has a beautiful Lion Fountain located in it which is a popular meeting and resting point for the tourists.
An interesting feature of this square is that it has had numerous names during the past . In Fact, it has had so many names that they affixed a pillar with all these names in the square. In 1812, 1833, 1846 and 1866 it was called Theatro piatcza Játékszín tér, Német Színház tér (German Theatre Square) and Régi Színház ter (Old Theatre Square) respectively because there was a theater here. In the1830s it was referred to as Harmincad tér or the thirties square, in 1840s as Séta tér or Promenade Square, in 1874 it was called Gizella tér to honour the Archduchess Gisela of Austria, in 1918 it was named Károlyi Mihály tér and finally in 1926 as Vörösmarty ter.

I visit Budapest regularly every year for the past 11 years and one of my favorite places to go is always Vorosmarty square.

Here you will find most of the big brand shops, good restaurants / coffee shops, or if you just want to sit around and watch people.

This is not the place if you are looking for cheap clothing but I always enjoy shopping here when the big brand shops have sales.

Enjoy browsing around!

This market and the shops in it are targeting tourists who are not aware of the exchange rate and the local prices.
STAY AWAY from a station called BOLDOG! The prices are not written next to the dishes and instead are written on a separate board in the local names without any clear way of knowing which is which. For 3 meals and 3 drinks, we ended up paying 21000 HUF = 65 euros. The food was bland and not freshly prepared. They heated it in microwave before serving. The "Gluhwine" had no wine in it. They scammed us by making us pay for porcelain cups without asking us if we want drinks in it or in a paper cup. And once we tried to return them thinking that it is like other Christmas markets where you return and get deposit back, they told us that they don't understand us.
