For the price it's a very good hotel. We stayed here with my 3 year old son for 2 nights. It's central close to vaci utca and close to the main sights. Clean. Friendly staff .really good and recommended

We stayed in City Hotel Pilvax for four nights. The service was good, price was ok, we got everything we wanted. The location of the hotel is excellent, near the main walking street Vaci Utca. The reception is open 24/7. The room was clean and cosy. A good hotel for this price if you are not expecting anything special.

We were looking for a basic, safe, friendly hotel in a central location and this was ideal! The staff was very friendly and helped us book reservations and tickets around the city, and gave us recommendations for good places to eat/drink in the area. Don't go in expecting lavish facilities-- the room felt a bit like university accommodation, but that...

The location of hotel is excellent and before we visited after reading some reviews I wasn't expecting much. As already mentioned in previous reviews it could do with makeover. But we were pleasantly surprised we stayed in 3 bed room. It had plenty of room for us and room was comfortable and clean. A kettle would be an advantage in...

The only think I like about this hotel is location. Walking distance to almost everything. To the Chain Bridge, Shoes of Danube, the port where we can take the public boat service across the river. Shopping mall, shops,cafe and restaurant. The hotel was too basic. No kettle, no hair dryer. Staff was ok. Not friendly or helpful. They just give...

The first thing to make clear is that we paid about £30/night for this hotel, so you can't expect much for that price. Having said that, it is clean, the staff are friendly, and the beds were firm but comfortable. There are obviously things that could be improved, such as the doors on the shower being stiff and trying to...

This hotel is right at the heart of the city, it's a 2 minute walk from a huge range of restaurants. If you do go here and are looking for a cheap time in budapest I would recommend taking a walk away from the inner city as it is a lot cheaper! There are a few bars in the area...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
