“Comfort and relaxation close to the centre but out of town”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Friendly staff who will always give good advice in English (and other languages). Great breakfast (€6). Clean, well serviced rooms. Large garden with sheltered seating. Frequent bus service to town (day, two day and week tickets a very good idea). Baroskos, the nearby recommended small restaurant, offers real Hungarian food and good prices. All in all, a very happy stay.

Don't hesitate - book it.

This hotel/guesthouse is situated in a quiet area of Budapest. It takes about 20 minutes by bus to the centre of the city. Bus tickets are available through the reception and the bus stop is a short walk away. The rooms were spacious and clean, and ours were also equipped with a small kitchen, sufficient for simple meals. Our rooms also had access to a huge terrace. The grounds include a childrens play area which would be nice if you were travelling with small children. The reception staff were all extremely helpful, and multilingual as well. They gave us many suggestions of how to make our too short stay in Budapest the best we could. There is breakfast available, but we chose to make our own. There is a small convenience store a short walk away and a nice restaurant, recommended by the staff, 10 minutes walk away. We were able to leave our car in the free parking in the courtyard for the whole time we were there. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

The guesthouse is situated in a villa area, very quiet. Beautiful location on the hill, courtyard, mountain atmosphere with trees, patio, pond, fresh air. Attentive staff, very helpful, the willingness to provide details about the city, connoisseurs of English and German. Rooms are very clean and spacious but can offer privacy, great view over the city.
Accessibility to the bus station, 15 min to the center ring of the city, tickets to the reception house.
Car parking is provided in the courtyard. In conclusion, excellent service at reasonable prices.

Very quiet area, beautiful garden, excellent service, private parking space. At the reception you can buy bus tickets, sightseeing tours, etc. Best money can buy if you want a quiet holiday in Budapest.

This place is located in the outskirts of Budapest, but the neighborhood is one of the best in town! Not very easy to reach the city center from here, but public transportation is within walking distance. This is a big house, quite new and very friendly. There is parking, a large garden, breakfast and free wi-fi. The staff is helpful and polite, and the area is great for relaxation, away from the noise of downtown Budapest. We had a large room, overlooking the hills around Budapest, with all the amenities you can expect in its class. Extremely quiet neighborhood, and a feeling of upscale living!
