Budapest Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Budapest

From popular cheaper chains to boutique hotels, your stay in Hungary’s capital of Budapest can be as luxurious or budget-friendly as you like. This artistic city has a range of accommodation options for solo travellers, friends, families and couples, making it a holiday destination to suit all.

Split in half by the winding River Danube, Budapest is a vibrant city that’s made up of stunning architecture, geothermal springs and unmissable view spots. Whether you visit for the Christmas markets or at the height of summer, Budapest a destination that will delight visitors of all ages and all tastes.

Where to stay

District V

If you’re looking to be in the middle of all the sights during your holiday, District V is the place to be. As the tourist centre of Budapest, District V is home to several large hotels as well as dozens of delicious restaurants, bars and shops. You’ll have the iconic Hungarian Parliament building on your doorstep, as well as Liberty Square and endless museums. District V also has a buzzing nightlife, and handily leaves you just a short walk away from all the sights across the river and further out of the city.

District VII

District VII is well known for being the city’s lively and artistic hub. As Budapest’s Jewish Quarter, it’s also rich with history - you can’t miss the Dohány Street Synagogue, built in the mid-19th century and now officially Europe’s largest synagogue. Hotels in this district will leave you perfectly situated for exploring the thermal spas, museums and shopping centres - and you’ll also be slap bang in the middle of all the city’s ruin bars.

District I

Located on the left hand side of the River Danube, a holiday in District I offers a quieter stay in Budapest. This is where you’ll find the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Castle District, which contains both the Buda Castle and the Fisherman’s Bastion. It’s also home to a number of lesser-known thermal baths including Rudas Baths and Gellert Thermal Bath just a short walk away from most hotels in the area.

What to see

Budapest is a city that’s rich with history and cultural hotspots, so you’ll never be short of things to see and do during your holiday. After a wander along the River to see the striking Hungarian Parliament building and the moving Shoes on the River Danube Bank memorial, you’ll be in the heart of the city. Take a tour of the Hungarian State Opera, and soak up the free views of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, one of the most famous sights in Budapest.

Whatever the weather, no trip to Budapest is complete a trip to one of the many thermal baths. Széchenyi Thermal Bath to the north of the city centre is the most well-known. It’s home to 21 indoor and outdoor pools ranging in temperatures from 18°C to 40°C, with room to take in a few laps or just to simply enjoy a soak. Fisherman's Bastion, over the other side of the River, is another unmissable spot. The panoramic viewing terrace has fairy tale turrets and archways, and offers the best views across Budapest.

Nightlife

Budapest has a lot to offer in the way of lively nightlife; millions flock to the city every year for a holiday to enjoy the inexpensive, eclectic after-dark entertainment. The ruin bars, so called for their locations in dilapidated buildings, are dotted around the city and are a must visit. Szimpla Kert is one of the most famous ruin bars, featuring a warren of little rooms filled with mismatched furniture, live music and eclectic art. There’s also plenty of other nightlife to keep you busy, too, from casinos to bars, nightclubs and even parties in the thermal spas!

What to eat

From hearty meals to sweet treats, Budapest has its fair share of delicious food for you to sink your teeth into. As the national dish of Hungary, goulash is probably one of the most popular meals around. It’s usually made with beef and vegetables, and is seasoned with a touch of paprika for a warming kick. For dessert, try a dobos torte - a delicious sponge cake layered with chocolate buttercream and topped with caramel. Or, treat yourself to a Kürtoskalács, a hollow cake that resembles a chimney, and which can be personalised with everything from cinnamon to Nutella – you are on holiday after all!

Shopping

The vibrant Váci street is one of the most well-known shopping areas in Budapest, and features everything from souvenir shops to high street stores and local crafts. The stylish WestEnd City Center is another of Budapest’s shopping havens. It’s got floors of international and local shops, as well as plenty of food stalls to keep your energy levels up.

Review of 'GRAND HUNGARIA'

A little out of the way but once you understand the public transport system you can easily and quickly get to the main tourist areas. Alternatively a taxi cab is around £5.  Rooms are clean, tidy and functional; ours was a 'double' but was in fact two singles pushed together with individual bed linen. "Functional" sums up the hotel (and Budapest) in that everything is well organised but don't expect a warm greeting as everyone is more intent on getting on with their job rather than expressing any greeting.  We used the brasserie rather than the restaurant and the food was very good at reasonable prices.

Review of 'GRAND HUNGARIA'

Our recent stay in the Grand Hotel Hungaria was Quite pleasant.The room on the 7th floor was fine, but the shower was of a very poor standard for a hotel that rates itself 4 star.<br />Breakfast was good...quite a lot of choice.The foyer was very busy,as one would expect of a hotel that size.We were taken aback to be phoned from reception on our last morning &given 10 mins to check out at 10am,even though our booking confirmation said check out time was 12pm!<br />Budapest is a beautiful city,with a splendid transport system. The 3 day tourist ticket is great value.We loved Heroes Sq, the baths,the view of the Danube from high over the City on the Buda side,the huge covered market.<br />

Review of 'GRAND HUNGARIA'

I arrived on a train from Bratislava quite late so I was pleased that the hotel was in walking distance from the main Keleti station. It is a little out of the centre of Budapest but&nbsp;&nbsp;there is metro station right by the hotel and you can be at the major sites in minutes. The hotel itself was very nice and I would rate as 4*. Room was large and all hotel amenities were good and price very reasonable. Downside was the traffic first thing in the morning very busy. All in all good hotel and excellent location if you are travelling by train to other parts of Central Europe.

Review of 'GRAND HUNGARIA'

Hotel itself was clean & comfortable, and pretty central - 2mins to metro station, and just a couple of stops to most of the attractions, or about 20mins walk.<br />The only downside was the unhelpfulness of a lot of the staff - they are focussed on large groups, therefore didn't respond well to individual queries.&nbsp;&nbsp;Answers I tended to get were shrugs of shoulders, can't help, or ask someone else.&nbsp;&nbsp;Bit of a shame, but the hotel itself was nice.

reading the first review on this page I had to go back and make sure I was in in the same hotel.The staff could not have been more friendly . We were upgraded to a suite and it is a&nbsp;&nbsp;little walk the sights but being someome who travels a lot I think it was better than O.K.<br /><br /><br />YOU MUST CHECK OUT THE SHOPPING CENTRE&nbsp;&nbsp;AND THE CHINESE MARKET

Review of 'GRAND HUNGARIA'

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Grand Hungaria. The hotel meets the standards I would expect from a four star hotel with clean spacious rooms and a good breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful.<br /><br />The hotel is not really located at walking distance from town although we did not find this a problem as both underground, buses and trams were reliable and easy to use. The location was not in the nicest part of town, but it was safe and had a few shops and supermarkets close by.<br /><br />Overall we felt the hotel was good value.

Review of 'GRAND HUNGARIA'

The hotel is not very close to the city centre and main shopping area as their brochure said. It is almost a two quilometer walk, which we did not mind. Lucky for us we love walking and the weather was great.<br />What good being near the Rail Station is, when it is out of service (repair season).<br />We were upgraded to a suite, which was very comfortable. No kettle with tea and coffee was provided by the hotel in our room. We bought our own tea and coffe and milk and borrowed a kettle and that is the reason we could make a drink whilst in our bedroom. <br />The hotel breakfast was very very good and it is a positive point for the Grand Hungaria.<br />The hotel staff member should come to England or go to the USA to learn good customer services. They are not friendly people or helpful. Actually not to many Hungarians are. Very rude people over all. Of course we met few lovely ones. We have talked to other foreign people who have the same opinion as we do. The natives do not welcome us with open arms and seems to resent our presence. However the city is gorgeous, there are so much to see and the surrounding villages are of great interest.<br />Going back to the hotel, we would have given it 3 stars only and chosen a better located one such as Intercontinental, Marriot, Astoria, Sofitel.

Review of 'GRAND HUNGARIA'

Pros: Hotel standard is excellent as too is the food, value for money I would rate the Hotel a 5 star.<br /><br />Cons: Location although relatively central, has 7 lanes of traffic out side (as well as a fly over), and as they don't have their A/C on until summer, spring time is unbearable in the rooms.<br /><br />The subway is right outside, however having travelled extensively on public transport throughout Budapest, this has to be the worst of the worst, the smell of Urine is very over powering, as are the&nbsp;&nbsp;Tramps that live there and approach every one possible.&nbsp;&nbsp;This is very intimidating.<br /><br />General: If you can avoid this subway, or perhaps master the trams (which do pass by the Hotel) all in all, you are getting a good standard of Hotel, which is very clean and accommodating.
