This hotel is really well located - in between two tube stops. I stayed here solo and got a room facing the main road. It wasn't really noisy but if you want somewhere really quiet this is something to keep in mind. The room was clean, especially the bathroom. The hotel water was endless and it was really comfortable to... More

It was easy to miss the entry way as a small brass sign only seen from one direction on a passage wall indicated that the hotel was located on the other side of a large metal gate. We had walked by it earlier from the other direction and missed it. Then one needs to walk up entryway stairs in the... More

We were fooled into believing the pictures of this so called "hotel". The picture of the building is NOT the hotel and it is not a hotel but a shoddy, shady hostel. We could not find the entrance to the hotel, the receptionist kept telling us the entrance is just beside Telenor. We pleaded for help, that if the entrance... More

While staying on the Buda side of the city, the night time view across the river of the Parliament house is spectacular. The city had been beautifully planned to get around in. Castles, churches, markets, cafes, we could have spent 2 weeks here. Also a great place to walk straight onto a river cruise boat and save thousands on brochure... More

Close to everything! There are two entrances to this hotel. The "back" entrance is across the street from the Synagogue. More restaurants and shops. Excellent air conditioning. Pleasant staff. Clean room. Wasn't impressed with the breakfast cafe, staff gave the impression that we were imposing on them.

First off: Made this booking via Agoda , booking number 108034384. However, nightmare from the start. Unlike their sister location, Budapest City Central, there is no good signage. Reception staff from hell- could hardly understand her, bad attitude and icing on the cake was: :yes, we have your reservation but no, we have no room for you. Please go to... More

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
