“very charming hotel (or bed and breakfast?)”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

Very charming small hotel. Staff is very friendly, street is green and quiet (but not a country-like) street. It can be easily reached by tramline 61 (via metro-station Szell Kalman ter, (on old maps called Mozskva ter), dir. Moricz Zsigmund korter, stop at Szürell utca.) Good breakfast. If you like art nouveau/jugendstil, this is the place to be. Prices are very reasonable.
Tip: on Szell Kallman ter you can go very fast to the old center of Buda (Matthias church etc) with bus 16 or 16a. From there to the center of Pest (Deak ferenc ter) with 16.
We liked it very much there!

The staff, the stay, the standards, and the setting at Abel Panzio made our trip to Budapest wonderful. The owner and his staff were extremely accommodating with polite service, friendliness and attention to helping us get around Budapest. For example, when leaving we had a early flight and they packed a hearty breakfast to take with us. Our private room was large and very clean. The main room for relaxing, reading, and having breakfast comfortable, cozy and old world classy. It was a great way to connect with fellow travelers for food and conversation. The tram with quick connection to the Metro was very convenient. The neighborhood was a quiet relief to the hustle of the city. A nearby, small restaurant was quite affordable, delicious and enjoyable. Overall, Abel Panzio was a perfect match of value and comfort. Scott and Sylvia/ USA

Room Tip: The first floor room with the three large windows to the street with a high ceiling was very spacio...

we spent 4 or 5 days in a double room with private bathroom, I can only say good things about this place, people in charge was very friendly and of great help. They not only made us feel at home for those days but they provided a lot of info regarding the places we wanted to visit.
Their location is not in downtown but in a quiet lovely place two blocks away from the bus. There was also a trolley very near, actually at the end of the block, that took us to the castle. Great place for the value, clean and safety.

I stayed in this wonderful pension in January 2012 for 7 nights. It was exactly what I was looking for: conveniently located (a 15-minute walk to Gellert Hill or a short tram ride), friendly, quiet and clean. But it was also more than that - a beautifully converted villa with the most kind and lovely owner and helpful staff, interesting guests, a lovely welcoming atmosphere, Hungarian art on the walls. I stayed in a double room (with en suite) which had lovely beams, plants and sky-lights and a huge desk (as a writer, this was beyond perfect). I felt more like I was staying with friends or family than in an anonymous hotel. Next time I'm in Budapest I will make sure I am staying here!

This lovely, quiet, private pension, located on the Buda side, will continue to be our location of choice as we return to Budapest in the future. If you're flying in it's about a 22 Euro ride from the airport, but make sure you take a taxi from the taxi stand and not one of the local "cabbies" waiting outside the baggage claim. The "innkeeper" is a very charming man and makes his guests feel genuinely at home. Breakfasts were genuinely continental with plenty of fresh break, cold cuts, juices. Our room with its own bathroom overlooked a very nice backyard for quiet time when you want to have some quiet time from the busy city. It's a nice walk to Móricz Zsigmond square where you can ride bus 7E(express) quickly to the Pest side of the Danube. The square is also where you can catch the Metro to other parts of the city.
So if you're looking for a home away from home enjoy Abel Panzio and ask for a "room with a view."

My wife and I got a double room and mother-in-law got a single room for two nights. The neighborhood was nice if a little out of the way and was easy to find. The house itself was very nice and the fridge was stocked with beer, wine, and drinks. While the rooms were spacious and clean they had a little bit of a run down feeling to them. The bed was lumpy, the shower head wouldn't attach to the wall, and the shower curtain kept falling off of the rings. The staff was not helpful with recommending restaurants or shows, and they kicked us off the breakfast table 10 minutes before the breakfast was supposed to end so they could begin cleaning. It interrupted a nice conversation we were having with some of the other guests. The next time I am in Budapest I am going to look for something that is a little bit more guest oriented.

My husband and I stayed at ABEL Panzio for 8 nights July 2011 and we were happy and comfortable there. The house is a beautifully restored Hungarian villa (built 1913) with all the charm which this implies. Situated in a quiet residential area it has a shady and restful garden which residents can use. Convenient for the city, with excellent transport links, it is near shops and local restaurants. Staff are courteous and friendly - approachable and helpful in every way. Also speak good English. Our room (ensuite double) was spacious and very clean.
