This hotel is not only charming but has aimed their service toward selective discerning clients. It is in a very convenient place in the Buda district which is great in the evening, excellent restaurants within a minute's walk. The hotel is decorated in a modern way this mixed with excellent specification in furniture and bathrooms made our stay very memorable and I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Room Tip: excellent junior suite on the ground floor.
The best hostel I have EVER stayed in anywhere (and I've been around...)
Amazing in every way possible; really cozy, clean and comfortable hostel in a beautiful listed building on the doorstep to everything and the staff are so friendly and welcoming and really want to help you explore and enjoy a city that they love.
If you're a single traveller or small group who really wants to have a great time in Budapest (day and night) then this is the place for you.
They have plenty of well-equipped apartments for rent in Budapest downtown. Prices are not very low but still OK and the service is excellent.
I stayed in a flat near Octogon and I had a great time there.
It's a self-catering apartment. I stayed there for one week and I just loved it, because it's really nice with a cute garden view. It's in the very centre, pretty close to everything.
It's in Veress Palne utca, right next to Vaci utca in district 5. Nearest metro is Kalvin ter. However you mostly need to walk only.
Really good hostel, comfy beds, free internet, incredibly friendly staff, walking distance from most attractions, free breakfast and it's one of the cheaper hostels in town. I would definitely go back there. Can be difficult to find, up a staircase in the alley next to the billiard hall, follow the pictures of goats.
Private rooms are the budget way to go in Budapest. Rather like a B&B without the breakfast. Sometimes they are separate apartments and sometimes relatively independent guest units attached to a larger apartment (rather like a granny flat). Private rooms are usually centrally located, operated by Budapest-based expats and locals alike. They are not only a cheap option but also provide instant access to local knowledge via your host who will have the insider lowdown on the best places to see/do/go in the Hungarian capital. Some are quite chic and full of character and make for a memorable stay. Private rooms usually rent from around 30 Euros a night.
Stayed in Budapest two weeks ago and stayed in a lovely self catering apartment. Classical old building but renovated really well, modern, spacious and truly of a 4* hotel equivalent yet €60 per night.
Exceptional value for money and unique accommodation to boot. Worth considering.

This is one of those places where the guests stay longer than they expected, and end up working there. The writing all over the walls and the squat-like attic give it a definite acid house feel, but don't worry, everyone’s friendly, and the hippy vibe is pretty infectious.
The 24-hour bar (essentially a fridge) and adjoining lounge are great to meet people and play some free pool. It’s a party place as well, so expect to have some messy evenings. A little bit of a mission to find, but definitely worth it. AND make sure you do a shot of Unicum at the bar. Medicinal apparently. Can't really remember.
Lovely staff. Fridge in the room, Glassed Shower nice breakfast...and FREE INTERNET. I could not continue to run my business without the free internet. Good signal also. Close to EVERYTHING! Subway, Train Station, Bus stops, Opera house, Baths, Museum, Hero's Square, Zoo, West End Mall, etc. We highly recommend renting a bike--and roll around! Wonderful location! Has 24 rooms. Ave: 75 Euros/nite Reservation required.
I stayed in this hotel near the St Stephen Basilica. It's quite new, I think they opened this year. The reason I'm writing this post is the price. It's a brand new three-star hotel in the middle of the downtown and a night costs peanuts.
Astra Hotel is one of the best hidden secrets in Budapest. It's on the Buda side in the Castle district with easy access to trams, bus stations and subway.
It's a quaint historical house that is 300 years old, which has been converted into a hotel with very spacious rooms decorated with simple antiques. Each room has its own personality, also very clean and easy on the budget.
Breakfast buffet is served in a cozy dining room with enough variety to satisfy each guest's taste.
Best of all, the staff is super friendly and very helpful with great tips on where to go and what to avoid. Very important for a city where people don't speak fluent English. Definitely a home away from home.
Staying at Astra definitely made my trip to Budapest a very memorable one, can't wait to go back!

Friendly hotel, with great prices, helpful staff and perfect location.
It's three-star accommodation, but the service is way better: it offers studios instead of rooms (with fully equipped kitchen and bathroom) and a buffet breakfast that easily competes with anything offered by higher category hotels. Plus, it is located only two bus-stops from the heart of the city, with a bus that drops you off basically in front of the entrance (arrives every 5 minutes or so). Don't be fooled by the cheap prices either - they have discounts for all seasons, but the quality is really amazing.
I booked it through a webpage (www.budapesthotelstart.com) that also offers other hotels, all for special rates as far as I could tell.

The European flagship of the Four Seasons chain. Recently renovated to its glorious, Art Nouveau best.
Stunning all the way I'm sure, but I've only been in for tea, as I'm a poor student and not a millionaire, like you. I ate in the bar area, which is beautiful, and the food was good and the service impeccable.
Wish I could afford to stay there. Donations on a post card to...

Me and my fiance have just returned from Budapest, where we had a wonderful time. Following the recommendation of one of my friends living here in Malmö, we've chosen to stay at Opera Residence.
It's just behind the Opera House in a very quiet street but still in the centre, just a few steps walk from the main sights, restaurants and bars.
We rented a very nice two bedroom apartment for 65 euros a night and we got free internet, dvd player, fully equipped kitchen, full bedding and fresh towels.
Since the whole apartment house is brand new, we felt like we in a suite of a high category hotel, but we paid 1/3 of the price. The area is full of nice restaurants and nightlife.
It was totally clean and new, the service of the welcoming staff was very friendly and professional. I can highly recommend it for those who are looking for good value accommodation in Budapest.
A fantastic, reasonably-priced hotel in the city's best district. Opposite the Hilton, the location is brilliant - just five minutes by bus to the main square, the hotel is opposite the main church and viewpoint.
The 'Castle District' is quiet, high up on the Buda hilly side of the city, so you get great views - especially at night. Hotel Burg has clean rooms (with free minibar!) and English-speaking staff. Best of all, the prices were very reasonable.
Castle District, Buda.
The apartment is located in one of the best parts of Budapest, very close to everything, like the Mammut Shopping Centre (my wife was thrilled about that!), the Budapest Castle and other great sights, excellent restaurants (Grandma's Pancakes house is great and really close - highly recommended!) and close to all transportation.
The apartment is clean, bright, well stocked with towels and such, the 2 large bedrooms can be great for families, although it was only the two of us. Highly recommended to everybody who visits Budapest!
We have just got back from four magical days in Budapest, staying at this brilliant apartment. The place is fantastic, and Tomas is a very good host who can tell you places to visit. Its location is fantastic, in a beautiful old building with a cafe at the bottom. Convenient! Honestly, look no further, this is the place to go.
