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.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you very much for choosing our hotel for your stay in Budapest and for taking the time to share your feedback with us as it helps us to improve your stay for the future. We are sorry about the inconveniences, unfortunately our building does not have a wheelchair friendly layout, which is communicated precisely on all booking channels. Whenever our wheelchair guests inform us in time about their preferences we can usually prepare a room most suitable for them. Please be sure that next time you inform us in time and we may be able to provide a room on the elevator floor. We hope to welcome you in the future as our guest. Warm regards, Károly Szombati, Sales & Marketing Coordinator, Hotel Charles***

Dear Guest, If you wish, our staff helps you to organize a direct transfer from the airport to the hotel. This must be the most convenient way. It cost cca. 24 EURO/ one person/ one way, if somebody else arrives with you, it costs cca. 26 EUROS/ 2 people/ one way. Our driver will be waiting for you even if your plane should be late. You can pay the transfer afterwards in our hotel. If you would like us to organize your transfer, please write us an e-mail to reservation@charleshotel.hu with your booking number. I hope I could help. Best regards, The team of Hotel Charles***
