Remember, this is a simple old world style classic hotel, so westerners must keep this in mind. If you want high luxury, go to the Four Seasons and pay 10 times more. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The front desk is also your concierge. They can make reservations for just about anything... More

This hotel tries it's best but falls a bit short. The location cannot be faulted- you are literally only a moments walk from the Basilica of St Stephen. The staff are great and all praise to them however the building is a little unloved. There were holes in the wall of our room where a fitting of some sort had... More

We have stayed at Hotel Central last year and we enjoyed it a lot so we have chosen this hotel again, this year. Besides the central location and the comfort provided, they surely have the most helpful staff that we have met.

While this is supposed to be a 3-star hotel, the only good thing is its location near the Basilica and A.C. The bed is lumpy and hard as are the pillows and comforter. Bed is also very low to the ground, suitable for a small child, but not for an adult. The sheets were too small for the bed. Look... More

Due to the high turistical/business season in Budapest, we had to look for a second option for lodging. We found this hotel as available so we booked there. This location is perfect for the tourists which travel by anything but car. Hotel does not have a parking available, even picking up or leaving someone is troublesome. Te parking nearby are... More

This is a great value mid-range hotel with excellent location nearby the St. Stephen's Basilica. It's close to shopping streets and public transportation. (Don't forget to visit the ice cream parlour next door). The AC worked well despite temperatures up to 30 degrees Celsius outside. The staff is friendly and helpful. I recommend it for long weekend stays.

What we liked most in this hotel is its perfect location. Very accessible to the train station and to the famous landmarks of Budapest. You can even just walk around in most part of the city center. St. Stephen's Basilica which is just a very few steps away. We were allowed for an early check-in. At night time we still... 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.
