The Rooms are avarage. The bathroom is avarage. There is no hair dryer in the room. You go and ask for it from reception each time....

If you are looking for a great location which is central to everything and within easy walking distance of the Danbue and Chain Bridge, this...

Just a short walk to the main squares, bridges and shopping streets. Reception are really helpful and speak English. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable ( and very warm ). They do not...

An older hotel with slightly dated rooms. However, the location and value are spot on... it's 5 minutes walk from the Danube, right next to a metro and only a few minutes from the main hub of the Pest side. Perfect for a city break when you're never in the hotel and would rather spend money on other things. Breakfast...

Old Pest town location was great for walking to many shops, restaurants, and historic places. But bringing a car is not recommended, as even with GPS took nearly an hour to get close enough to hotel (on pedestrian only street) due to street construction to unload our bags, then park in a garage a kilometer away. Hotel was reasonably clean,...

We had some trouble in our showers, the water stranded and then flooded, it was a mess. When we complained the reception, they told us there is nothing they can do, the only choice was to switch...

Stayed for three nights Friday until Monday. The hotel is basic although it is clean and the breakfast is good with a range of cereal, pastries, toast, yogurts etc. Staff were generally friendly, however we were denied additional towels as ours were wet. The room was a good size and the bathroom was clean with a good shower. The location...

This hotel is in an excellent location right in the centre of Budapest, if you're a heavy sleeper and just want to get your head down and have a shower and not spend too much then this hotel will be ok for you. The hotel smells strongly of fried food right around the day. Got into the hotel room, the...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
