We really enjoyed our stay. The property could not be in a better location in Pest, walking distance to everything. Rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast was plentiful, and the owner was incredibly helpful throughout our stay, with great recommendations. Highly recommend!

After reading the reviews on Butterfly Home on arrival it met with all our expectations. On arrival Andras made us very welcome, as it was quite late and in need of some nourishment he gave us a few suggestions of some Restaurants were we could eat, and again we were not dissapointed. The following day he advised us of the various places we could visit, the distances between locations as to make the most of our individual days. My extra thanks is the Tickets he managed to get us for the Ballet Gizzel being shown on the Opera House which was superb. We would also like to thank Timea and her Sister.

Stayed here for 1 night. Thought I would just see a couple of attractions but then I met my host Andreas (hope I spelled it correctly). He came up with a time efficient way of covering a lot of ground during my 40 hours in Budapest. And restaurants too! Get ready to loosen your belt. This little family-run B&B is the real deal: I stayed in a huge room that was quiet and spotless; breakfast was yummy (extra points for the homemade jams!), and Andreas' wife is quite the barista (cappuccino in almost under 1 minute). Would definitely stay here again.

The Butterfly is a good place to stay on a quiet pedestrian street just around the corner from downtown Pest. We stayed for one night in early September; our other accomodation could not offer an additional night, so they called Andras and he gave us a deal. He has long experience with B&B's and just recently bought the Butterfly. It's not frilly on the inside, but the rooms are spacious and clean, the breakfast is substantial, and Andras is helpful; his English is natural. If you don't already know Budapest or have a map in hand, it could be difficult to find the place; if you're just arriving in town, take a taxi from the airport. While I have another first choice (run by Andras's parents), I'd certainly stay at the Butterfly again.

We needed a place to stay in Budapest and this wasn't our first choice but it turned out to be a gem. We stayed three nights -- the first night on a newly-opened room on the third floor. A bit of a climb but Andrus, the innkeeper, moved us to the second floor for the next two nights. The guest house is in the heart of Pest not far from the Liberty or "green" bridge. Andrus was great. He gave us some good recommendations for restaurants and valuable tips like where to catch the best evening cruise on the Danube for the money and how to use the subway. He even gave us two metro/tram cards left by a previous guest. Every time we had a question he had an answer. His wife also made some wonderful crepes and shared some homemade apricot jelly for breakfast. We couldn't have found a better location for the price. We enjoyed our stay and recommend it highly.

I'll set the benchmark for this review by saying that I do have high standards and on my last visit to Budapest stayed at the 5* Buddha Bar Hotel, that was very good, but only got a 4* rating. On this visit I wanted to try the other end of the accommodation spectrum and sample one of the many B&B's.

The location of Butterfly House is excellent, not only is it in the centre and within easy walking distance of most attractions, it is also very close to the tram and metro stops. The location is also tucked away from the main tourist streets close to the university and has some interesting pedestrian areas close by with good value restaurants & bars.

The accommodation is spacious, very clean and comfortable with up to date ensuites. There is no lift, so if you have difficulty using the stairs this one is not for you.

Breakfast is what I would call local continental. It has been well described in previous posts. What I particularly liked was lots of local and home made products like the egg bread, jams and pancakes.

Hospitality - this is where the Butterfly House excels. The hosts, Andreas and his wife go out of their way to meet your every need, whether it be recommendations of where to eat, booking cut price tickets, getting taxis etc., nothing is too much trouble.

Value - given the location and the quality of the service their prices represent good value.

What I would change (these are meant to be constructive suggestions as Andreas & co have only recently taken over)- The WC deoderisers are way too strong for a small space and on entering the ensuites the smell gave them a 'cheap' feel and a bad first impression. Make sure that there is fresh bottled water in every room daily and as an American lady recommended, a box of tissues. These are all low cost add ons that do make a big difference.

What exceeded my expectations - When I asked about where to eat locally, I did not get the usual restaurant names and locations on the map. Andreas, stopped what he was doing and took me on a personal tour of the area. Also he does not live in, and I arrived on a late flight that was delayed, so arrived in the early hours. Not only was he there to greet me, but the greeting was warm & generous.

This is a family run hotel in walking distance from all the major sites in Budapest. The rooms are very clean and very spacious. The owner spoke very good English and was extremely helpful. The breakfast is a buffet breakfast made by the whole family (including a plum jam made by the grandmother) with fresh coffee or tea made on demand.
