If you are looking for a great location, value for money and personable service then this is the place to stay in Budapest. The Danube Guest House is located on the Pest side of the city, a 10 minute walk from the Vaci Utca and the banks of the Danube itself. Situated on the first floor of an apartment block the guest house is ideal for city breakers who want less of that corporate hotel experience and more of something a little different.

On arrival Zoltan and Bob, your hosts, will ensure that you are orientated and they’ll have welcome suggestions for the sights to see and places to go in the city, the kind of tips that you wouldn’t pick up from a guide book. Bob and Zoltan are gracious and welcoming hosts and they proudly run a comfortable, spotlessly clean guesthouse where you are made to feel like it’s a home away from home.

My friend and I stayed in two of the 3 single rooms available at the guesthouse. Both were en suite and as single rooms no bigger than we expected, with functional and tasteful decor and the basics of tv, hairdryer, en-suite. The guest house is wifi enabled and high speed internet access is available for those who need it. Hot beverages and juices are offered and available at any time of the day and breakfast in the morning is a choice of fresh pastries, cereal and fruit.

Budapest is a beautiful city and I would definitely recommend and stay at the Danube Guest House again should I return to Budapest as it made my break there all the better!

This is truly a guest house, as the name implies. We liked the location for sightseeing and the owners were very nice and very helpful. The room was a good size and the only one in our five city trip that included washcloths with the towels. We appreciated that. Breakfast was included with juice, water, fruit, coffee and tea available all day. Breakfast included the above, as well as yogurt, cereal and warm pastries. A computer was available 24 hrs. for guests. What we would have appreciated would have been a window to the outside. Our only window fronted the kitchen of this guesthouse. The owners live in the guesthouse and all guests enter a door through the kitchen. Amazingly, this was not really a problem with noise, but gave one a sense of reduced privacy with the window open for ventilation. It turned out not to be a problem, but it could have been. I think the owners were cautious and if any problem arose, they would have taken care of it. Even with the above, I would stay here again. It was friendly.

I found the guest house on this website back in the Autumn of last year. I was very pleased with the accommodation, especially the welcome from the hosts and the location, which is very handy for the metro, but also just for walking around the lovely city. We had a truly wonderful time. We stayed in the small double shown in the picture above which was, I think, the only double with an outside window. It was very nicely decorated.

However, there were two points, which I almost feel bad about bringing up when we enjoyed our stay so much. But I think I should explain why I'm not giving the guest house 5 stars. Firstly, the room floor was not clean and was covered in long hairs that stuck to everything. Second, the duvet was not a full sized double so didn't go over two people properly and some of the slats had fallen out of the bed base so it was very saggy (we put them back in ourselves and then it was fine). I am sure these issues were just a glitch as no-one else seems to have had any problems. I'm also sure that Bob would have fixed them straight away if we'd asked, but we liked him too much to complain!

Whilst you can get really posh hotels in Budapest there don't seem to be many of this standard, so the guesthouse really fits a requirement.

The location is perfect--good transport links, easy walking access to the sites in Pest and Buda, and plenty of interesting dining options around. Probably also the best deal of the B&Bs. The rooms are brand new with en-suite bathrooms. The hosts are willing to help and advise on any aspect of the trip.

Easily one of the best places I have stayed in. Such considerate hosts! What makes this guest house special are the little things, such as the filtered water available in jugs stored in the fridge, which shows a real concern for guests. The room was clean, modern and very homely. Breakfast was fine, with cereals and fruits available, along with a pastry of choice. In addition the location is excellent, though I had a hard time trying to find the place as it's on a long road. Just remember it's very near to the synagogue!
