“Beware...you may not get a room!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

My wife and I booked a 3 night stay at La Prima 4 months before we travelled. We liked what we read and got a good price. However, when we arrived we were told that they had overbooked and we had to go to another hotel that they had arranged for us!So BEWARE, if you think that you have a booking here and are looking forward to your stay, they may have sold your room for a better price and paid for you to go elsewhere!!!

This is an exceptionally clean and modern hotel in the thick of the scene of Budapest just steps away from the Danube River and the main shopping district of Vaci Utca. The rates include free wifi and an excellent breakfast buffet. The rooms are very small as are the bathrooms but they are impeccably clean and the staff are very nice and accomodating. They are a completely nonsmoking hotel. If finances are such that you cannot consider the higher end hotel chains on the Danube, this cozy hotel will be perfect for your vacation.

Room Tip: Be sure to request either an interior room (overlooking a courtyard type set up facing other room wi...

Stayed at the hotel for a night. Like to boutique style that has been decorated. Perfect location, located at centre of the shopping area.

If you're tired of faceless luxury hotels and want to branch out into something a bit more boutique with some individual character while in Budapest, look no further than La Prima fashion hotel. Located in the middle of Vaci street (one of main shopping streets on Pest side), La Prima was the perfect choice for my brief stay.

It delivered on many of my important metrics - excellent location, reasonably priced, substantive breakfast included in the room price, artfully designed and comfortable rooms, etc. Note that the rooms are actually pretty decently sized too, so you won't be walking into a space the size of your closet.

Finally, the language barrier was no issue at all, which might be a concern at smaller, non-chain hotels; all staff that I interacted with spoke English well. One of two places and locations I stayed on my long weekend trip to Budapest and this was hands down the winner.

Booked through laterooms and got a great deal - £185 for 3 nights bed and breakfast for 2 of us. It really is superbl located just where the Vaci Utca (main shopping street) crosses teh Elizabeth Bridge approach, just 200 metres from the Danube next to the Elizabeth Bridge with superb views of the Citadel and Castle Hill. The location couldn't be better to be honest.There are many restaurants within easy walking distance including the italian restaurant which the hotel sits above (although we didn't eat there) which seemed very busy. Staff were all very helpful and courteous and the room was an excellent size and very well furnished. Even though it is very close to many of the sight it is very quiet in the room. I would happily go back and/or recommend to anyone planning a short break.

Room Tip: There seem to be few differences that I could see and all seemed very quiet, even those on the front...

The Hotels location is probably one of the best in the city, just in the corner of the main shopping street Vaci Utca. Reception staff was very helpfull and also sold us tickets to Gellert thermal spa and booked us massages, which was super helpful!
Decoration and design of the hotel is beatiful ,but at least our room (standard?) was not very spacious. Normal size person hardly fits to the shower cabin ;)
For short stay it didnt matter, but for longer stay I would recommend deluxe room or suite.
Also our room had wall-to-wall carpet which made our nose get stuck.
The internet page of the hotel seems to have only pictures from deluxe rooms and suites.
Beds were very comfortable! Cleaning was very good, couldnt find even a spot or slight dust nowhere! Breakfast was basic but good, different coffee options were definete plus =)

Room Tip: Court yard room is very quiet!

We stayed there for 7nights (16th to 23rd March).The hotel is in throwing distance of the Danube.It also just off Vaci utca where there are alot of shops and restaurants.Its also in walking distance of most of the attractions.The main door to the hotel is quite small.It could be easily missed.We had two double rooms on the inside of the hotel.The room was a decent size and looked over the reception that I had.The mattress on bed is of agood standard(I slept very well).The cleanliness of the hotel was without question(immaculate).Breakfast starts at 7am and had agood selection of food and drink.The bar is in a strange place.Its at the reception.So when you had a drink at the bar.You have people coming past you.But,there are alot of places around there to go for a drink.The staff are very helpful and answered questions quite happily.I would highly recommend this hotel.
