Stayed there for 4 days and it is very good value for money, as it is smack in the middle of Budapest, surrounded by all bars, restaurants, clubs and the old town is just a10 minute walk. Breakfast is basic but ok. Be careful when exchanging money only go to authorised places as got ripped off just outside one as... More

I have stayed several times at this hotel, mainly because of its excellent location next to the Basilica and in the vicinity of a huge range of bars and restaurants. I have attended the Formula 1 race in Budapest many times and this hotel is perfect for me being close to the Metro station allowing easy access to the place... More

Just got back from Budapest where we went to watch the F1 race. This hotel is perfectly situated next to the Basilica which is close to a variety of restaurants, shops, bars and the river. The Hop On Hop Off tour is great value at around € 22 as you get 2 boats trips included. Visited Maragrita island which is... More

I liked the hotel overall, it was a nice and comfy hotel and the breakfast included was splendid. The whole hotel was elegant but better wi-fi system and thicker pillows would have been appreciated. It would be good as well if the wi-fi on our smartphones would have worked even when we were down on floor -1 and in the... More

The best thing about the hotel is it's location - right next to St Istvan Basilica. The rooms are pretty good though basic. The bathroom is quite big and fancy. The air conditioning was not really up to the mark, luckily it was quite a cool night but could be a problem on warmer nights. The breakfast was very disappointing.... More

Was delighted with the location of this hotel; even better than we expected! It is central to everything; shops, restaurants, attractions etc. Very friendly staff on every shift, always willing to help with finding good places to eat, booking tickets arranging airport transport etc - could not have asked for better! Room was basic but comfortable for what we paid,... More

Location location...the only positive factor to choose this hotel. Air conditioning could take over 1 hour to cool the room. Its a worn down, used-to-be place which has only 1 positive aspect to its benefit. Of my many trips, this hotel could be the one with the worse breakfast ever. I have had some stale croissants in my life which... More

The location of this hotel is one of the best that you can find in Budapest. It is within walking distance of several attractions and only a couple of blocks away of all means of transportation (very important for us since I was traveling with my 80-year-old mother!). The staff was very kind and helpful and the rooms were simple... More

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.
