Connection Guesthouse
Ranked #71 of 673 Specialty Lodging in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 12, 2013

This is the perfect location in Pest. The two gentlemen that run the Connection are very friendly, informative and helpful. The room was very nice, clean and quiet despite facing the street. I actually requested a room facing the street so I could people watch and see daily life in Budapest. I hope to return and I do my wife and I will be staying at the Connection again!

PS- As other people reviewing have pointed out, don't judge this hotel by the entrance way. I personally liked the old world feel to the entrance way and courtyard but I can see how some might be wary. Once in the lobby, you'll see it's a top notch place to stay.

Just back from my wonderful 5 days in this beautiful City... spent in this B&B.
After reading all those feedabacks about Connection Guest House, I've decided to spend my holiday here ad would suggest it to everyones..
The building is very nice and authentic same as all the ones in this city.. The B is super efficient, clean and the staff is super...
I had a room on the main street and could not feel any issue... no any noisy at all ! For the comment I've ready that this B&B is in front of a Pub, yes, it is true but in one week I had not any noisy from it... and for the other comments which says that outside here is a Metro station, I think we are not talking abut the same place !
The place is great, super clean, warm, super friendly, extremely central and there re not any negative feedback to do.... even the fridge in the big room...Staff works from 7am till midnight in order to get your stay as much comfortable as possible...
Congratulation to Connectin Guest House staff !!!!

Room Tip: I had a look to some of them... all of them are nice & big...

The staff is very nice and friendly.
The guy that attend me give me some hints. I have forgotten his name.
The hotel is very clean e organized.
The hotel is very well located. It's near to the Deak Tér Station. All the 3 lines of metro pass there.
It's near to the shooping area, Danube River, Charles Bridge. There are many restaurants, minimarkts around.
The best: I had booked a single room with shared bathroom and they offered me a double room like a loft.
The room is spacious, new, modern, beautiful, well decorated. I simply loved it!

In the middle of district 6 and 7, where it's all happening in Budapest.
Amidst many popular ruin pubs (a must go when you visit Budapest!).
On walking distance of everything worth visiting in this city.
(We've lived in Budapest for nearly 2 years, in the same building as Connection Guesthouse, so I know what I'm talking about :-)

Very clean place.
Extremely friendly, helpful and 'fun to be with' staff.
Great value for your money.

Room Tip: Rooms on the court yard side are quieter. Especially in the weekend there's quite a bit of noise...

Connection Guest house - great location, no more than 10 minutes walk from Deak Ferenc Square metro, and on the edge of the Jewish Quarter, with lots of bars and restaurants on hand.
Don't be put off by the entrance to the building which houses the guest-house, which is through a very non-descript door on Kiraly St, and up a couple of flights of ugly stairs, but once you get to the first floor, it all comes right. The guesthouse is really the converted first floor of a building. It´s cosy, but clean, efficiently run and with friendly staff. We had room 9 to the rear of the building, which apparently was a plus, as Kiraly St is very lively at night, (at least at the weekend, when we were there) so it can be noisy. Our room was a kind of mini-loft, with a sitting area with sofa and TV, and bathroom downstairs, and the sleepting area upstairs (the bed was very comfortable). There was a kettle and mugs in the room too, as well as a mini-bar at good prices. Wifi was available throughout.
Breakfast (Eur6 p/p, not included in the room price), was good and plentiful, and Lazlo prepared eggs and coffee for us, which was a nice touch.

Budapest is a walkable city, although it pays to plan your target areas, and the Connection guest house is well located and at a good price. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room to the back of the guest-house, and not facing Kiraly Street.

I have just stayed here for the second time. As someone has already written, don't be fooled by the run down exterior - that's quite a usual ex-communist country thing! Inside is stylish and spotlessly clean. The boys are so welcoming and friendly, and the convivial atmosphere spreads to the guests. Breakfast is at a communal table, continental style with a selection of hams and salamis, cheese, fruit, cereal, yoghurt etc. and they will freshly cook your eggs however you want them.

The rooms are immaculate and the showers are good. The back rooms are silent and the front rooms have thick double-glazing so the noise from the street and bars do not really bother you.

They provide a airport transfer service for €20. Well worth it as the guest house isn't the easiest place to find for the first time.

There is free wi-fi and nothing is too much trouble for them. They'll call you a taxi if you need, which is also good as there are some cowboy outfits in Budapest who can really rip you off. The location is excellent - right in the centre of Pest, near many bars and restaurants and just a short walk to the metro and bus stops.

I really cannot recommend this guest house enough. It will always be my first choice when I go to Budapest.

Room Tip: The quietest rooms are in the back
