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.

1. The friendliest & most efficient staff I ever met (better than in 4-5 stars hotels!) 2. Excellent breakfast in a very quiet and very pleasant atmosphere 3. 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 ?!

We booked the cheapest room but they gave us a deluxe room. The approach of the staff was helpful. They were always interested with us. Maybe not new, not so clean but it was comfortable and we were pleased during our stay.

We stopped by as we were attracted to the 10€ pp price tag for a 3 course meal. We were pleasantly surprised as the atmosphere was lovely- white tablecloths, candlelit, decorative outdoor lights- and the food was hearty and fullfilling. We had Goulash (traditional soup- not a stew- was delicious), Chicken Paprika and Dumplings (sauce was lush!) followed by a... More

This is a well run hotel 4 stops on a bus route to the center of town. Staff are very helpful. I believe all their rooms have air conditioning. Their restaurant serves very good food. However if you want to take a drink up to your room, the extremely strict bar woman insists on decanting your drink in a plastic... More

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.
