This hotel was fantastic. Set in the quieter Buda side of Budapest, it is perfectly placed for the tram as the stop is immediately over the road from the hotel. Also immediately adjacent to this hotel is the station for the cog-wheel railway which takes you up to the fresh and picturesque Buda hills. It is a 5 minute walk to the food market and the Mammut shopping mall, where you can get a tram to absolutely anywhere in Budapest and the underground station. Over the road from the hotel (next to the tram stop) there is a friendly lace where you can have a beer and a snacks and further down the road is a friendly bar which has old vinyl records as part of its décor.
The room in the Budapest Hotel are quite snug and the wardrobe space is economic but the staff in the reception are extremely helpful, informative and happy. They are an absolute credit to this hotel and made our stay at this hotel incredibly enjoyable. May I thank each and every one of them.
The view from our room on the 12th floor was phenomenally breathtaking and you can see across Buda and Pest and you can admire the glorious Danube.
All in all, the quirky Hotel Budapest was exactly what I needed as a central but not bustling part of a beautiful capital city and would seriously recommend to anyone.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Stay at one of the capital’s iconic buildings! Hotel Budapest – formerly called Round Hotel – caused a major stir as soon as it was built. The high-rise circular building full of windows was considered an architectural oddball, and so in time became one of the symbols of Budapest and a favourite with visitors. With its 15 stories and 64 metres in height, it’s still the tallest hotel in the country. From its higher floors, you get a breathtaking panoramic view of the various landmarks of the Buda and Pest sides of the city. The hotel, located in green surroundings at the foot of the Buda hills, is an excellent choice whether you want to go sightseeing, or you’ve come for a professional event, or if you want to go for a walk in the Buda hills: the buses or trams stopping in front of the hotel will take you to the M2 metro in Széll Kálmán Square in a few minutes, and also to many nice place in Buda, without having to change. The cog-wheel railway, a major tourist attraction in itself, stops right opposite the hotel, offering easy access to the Buda hills. The nearby Városmajor park is a great place for long walks, jogging and other outdoor exercise. Those arriving by car or coach can park their vehicle in the car park in front of the hotel. ... more less
