We had a fabulous three night stay in Hotel Charles Budapest. The reception staff were so polite and helpful and they had excellent English which is a big help. It is about a fifteen minute walk into the city centre so we got a bit of exercise as well. There are buses just outside the hotel if you don't feel... More

This is a very friendly, helpful and absolutely honest restaurant. Delicious food is served by pleasant staff. The menu is varied and we also had coffee there one morning-all equally delicious and served by delightful staff.

The room was great, location on a bus line, but easy to walk to downtown. The hotel desk people provided service like something from another era - always pleasant, extremely helpful, advice on how to get anywhere, changing money, and English was spoken. We got the buffet breakfast every morning, which was a wonderful start to the day.

Very good location, excellent bus connection 4. Very nice room, well equipped, but VERY NOISY because of the trains and I was asked TO PAY EXTRA for the air condition ?!

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighborhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
