“A room to spend time in.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

I stayed for 4 nights in March and enjoyed a wonderful vacation here. 2 comfortable chairs by the window encourage you to spend time watching the river traffic which I found totally absorbing. Even while resting on my bed in room 41, I could see the Chain Bridge. The room was spacious, and newly fitted. End rooms benefit from having a side window which opens and they are slightly larger than the centre rooms. Lots of different room lighting options to discover and very good wifi in the room. I could hear the trams trundling past below but not a problem for me.

I travelled in by public transport after lots of research on the excellent BKV (public transport) website. It was straightforward and a very interesting introduction to Budapest. I purchased a single ticket for the 200 bus at Relay newsagents at the airport and then a 7 day travel pass at the metro station, Kobanya Kispest for onward travel to Batthyany ter. I strongly recommend the travel pass for the convenience because unlike other cities which allow you to change transport within a time limit, here you need to buy new tickets when you switch modes. It can also be used on the BKV passenger boats on the Danube, routes 11, 12 and 13. The hotel website also has very good links to anything else that you want to know.

So many highlights on this trip so here are a few. A trip on The Childrens Railway, travelling up on the cogwheel railway from Varosmajor and returning by chairlift. I went to a ballet performance at the Opera House and a guided tour of the Parliament Building, both easily booked online in the UK. Afternoon tea is also served for free in the beautifully restored music room which is located just through reception.

I also enjoyed the art of Victor Vasarely at the nearby museum on the Buda side, the architecture of the great Market Hall and the western railway station, Nyugati P which is also the home of the grandest McDonalds imaginable.

Having read of numerous tourist scams in Budapest, nothing untoward happened to me throughout my stay but I did avoid the touristy Vaci Utca area in Pest. I look forward to returning to Hotel Victoria, surely the best price/quality ratio available and did I mention the stunning river view and music salon?

Room Tip: End rooms are slightly larger and have a second floor to ceiling window that opens. Room 41 was high...

I have just returned from 3nts stay with friends at the hotel and cann't say enough about the location , the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. We had rooms overlooking the Danube and the view was fantastic particularly at night when all the buildings are lit. Although on the Buda side it was only 10mins walk across the lovely Chain Bridge to the Pest side. We did the free walking tour of the city, very impressive and informative and a must do is to go to one of the many bath houses in the city. We chose Szechenyi up at Heroe's Square, beautiful! Many, many really lovely old buildings in and around the city. Definitely would return to the hotel and the city.

A great small hotel on the Buda side. Rooms are well appointed, staff friendly and helpful, and the breakfast outstanding. Our room had a great view of the Danube and buildings on the Pest side. Easy walking to many tourist areas. An excellent choice for business or pleasure.

We stayed here in 2012 and we loved the place. We had a balcony overlooking the river and another room for family with a lovely bay window overlooking the river. The rooms are comfortable and the staff helpful. I would stay there again for sure.

We loved the Hotel Victoria, especially the view overlooking the Danube River and Parliament at night. We found the Buda side of the river to be quieter and more relaxing than the Pest side, yet conveniently located a few blocks from the subway, and a tram stopped right in front of the hotel. It was a 5 minute walk to the funicular that takes you to the castle district. The breakfast buffet provided ample food, yet cooked to order eggs and meat were also prepared in minutes. There is nothing about this hotel that we didn't like, and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We must have had the best room on the top (9th floor). The elevator only goes to the 8th, so we als...

Past reviews of this hotel was main reason for our stay at Hotel Victoria. We were there from April 5th through April 12, 2013. Great room with a view. We were three sisters staying in one room. Spacious even with the extra roll in a single bed. Happened to be my birthday. Great surprise when we got to our room. A box of chocolate with a beautiful card from our hotel staff wishing me a happy birthday. Sisters surprised me with bottle of champagne, cheese and fruit tray. Great birthday dinner at 5 star HALASZBASTYA restaurant behind our hotel on the cliff next to St. Matthias church. Live entertainment of classical music. A must in Budapest even just for a lunch. What a memorable night. Weather was extremely cold. Overall, will return again at anytime to hotel Victoria. Thank you so much for making our stay so pleasurable. The hotel was hosting a classical music event. We attended and OMG! I felt Mozart and Chopin were playing live for us. Our flight back to U.S. was at 6am. Woke up at 3am and later in the lobby, the front desk gentleman served us coffee before our departure to the airport and breakfast to go for three of us in a bag. We were just pampered all over. Thanks a million! Köszönet egy millió!

This hotel was the best in our two week vacation. Perfect location on the Danube across from Parliament near the Chain Bridge. Easy walk to metro station. Tram stop outside front door. Friendly service. Made-to-order free breakfast. Happy hour. Squeaky clean and very comfortable. 5 star at a 3 star price. We were able to check in early and also leave our bags after checkout while we were waiting to depart to the airport for our flight. We will stay there again and will recommend to our friends and family.
