The Hotel Victoria is 4* but don't be expecting luxury.
We stayed as a group of 3 for 3 nights for about £100 each and thought it was outstanding value.
The hotel is about 5 mins walk to the bottom of Buda Castle Hill, about 5 mins to the Chain Bridge and about 5 mins to the metro. It is right on the banks of the Danube and has the most stunning views across the river to the Parliament building which is beautiful, and down the river to the Chain Bridge. We could have walked from the hotel to any of the key tourist sites.
Breakfast was from 7-10am, and was basically breads, cereal, cheese, ham with a hot breakfast on request.
The rooms were very clean, our room was very big, we had satellite TV (great for watching the winter olympics!) and the perfect view! Beds were comfy, and we all slept well. We were in room 83 and I would recommend requesting a room on floor 5 or above and ending in -3 as they are on the corner, to get the best view.
The staff were for the most part polite and friendly - they booked us cabs and reserved tables when we asked. When we were leaving for the airport and I realised I had thrown away my e-ticket for the flight home they helped me go through the rubbish to find it!!
I would definitely recommend staying at the Hotel Victoria and would go back.
Do note though when planning a trip to Budapest that museums tend to be closed on Mondays and lots of restaurants are closed on sundays.
