I had a stay in Budapest in Charles Hotel for 3 nights. We had one deluxe studio which meant plenty of space! Rooms were clean. It was a bit cold during the night. Breakfast was also very good and diverse. The hotel is not located in the city center, but rather in a residential area, 15-30 minutes walking from Buda...

Ok. This is a basic hotel with no thrills but it is excellent value. In essence you get a very large room with a separate kitchenette and bathroom. Everything is very clean and well maintained. The TV was very old but not a biggie. Breakfast is good and staff friendly and helpful. It is a little out of the way...

We stayed four nights in this hotel situated on the Buda side of Budapest. Everything about it was just first class. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it is ideally situated for a few day stay in this delightful city. . It is however a 15 minute or so walk to Elizabeth Bridge. The walk is predominantly downhill....

Vital Europe recommended this hotel as I was visiting Budapest for some dental work. The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms large, with free safe deposit box.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
