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.

Fascinating!

I've been to Budapest 16 times and never tire of it. The food is of a very high standard, prices are low and hotel bills are much lower than in most countries in the EU. The architecture is fascinating and walking around the Buda castle area after dark is a treat. Because the prices are lower here (although nowhere near as low as they used to be), it's definitely worth considering stocking up on whatever you usually spend a lot of money on at home. In Budapest, you can really treat yourself without much outlay. The spas are great and they are excellent for de-stressing. I particularly like Gellert because of the sunloungers where you can chill out all day. Restaurant wise I return to these: Haxen, Hemingway, Nancsi Neni, Bagolyvár, Paprika and the little Italian restaurant on the 3rd floor in Mammut I. Going to a Sunday brunch is great. I take first-time visitors to Gundel because it feels mandatory! Sightseeing wise I would recommend going around Pest during the day and Buda castle area at night. Must-see sights for me would be the indoor market hall, Parliament, Szabadsag square, Heroes square and the Szechenyi spa. For longer stays, trips up the Danube and up the Buda hills would definitely be worth doing. In general, walking around anywhere in the centre would satisfy any curious first-time visitor. Shopping wise there are lots of shops on the ring roads, expensive ones on Vaci utca and there are plenty of shopping centres, for example West End and Mammut I and II. In all, Budapest is great for a relaxed, chilled out break without hassle.

What a fantastic city!

Had a brilliant trip! Budspest is architecturally beautiful. There is lots to see and do. I would recommend a visit to the szechenyi thermal baths and Fausts wine tasting in the Hilton Hotel. Almost everyone speaks English, however I would recommend learning a few phrases before you go to help you along.

Budapest - a wonderful city.

Budapest is a beautiful city,with so much to see;churches,museums,art galleries,the Chain Bridge,the Old Town,the spas,the Roman ruins at Aquincum,the elegant shopping arcades and breathtaking views over the Danube. A few tips: buy a book of ten metro tickets for about 10 euros,ask the hotel for a good street plan and then explore the city at your leisure. Central Budapest and especially the Old Town are expensive-the area around Oktagon (two kilometres east of the centre of Pest) is much cheaper for eating and drinking. Learn a few words of Hungarian-the people may not understand you,but they will appreciate your efforts to speak the language. Don't get a taxi at the airport;bus 200 will take you toKobanya Kispest (the starting-point of the metro line) for about £1 (1.2 euro.)

Budapest is a fantastic city which has everything that you could wish for-and at very reasonable prices.

Beautiful Budapest

I loved budapest, it had wonderful architecture, weather and food. The transport systems in place are very efficient and quite cheap. It was very easy to navigate around the city and free maps can be found at the train stations and airport. The people speak many different languages and spoke english very well. The exchange rate is good at the moment so we found that we could get 3 course meals with drinks for as little as £27 -£30 for 2 people ( not each!) I would definatley visit the city again in the future.

Beautiful City

We loved Budapest, the views especially from Buda down to Pest are amazing. We went on the Free Walking Tour which was a great way to get an overview of the city with an excellent guide. Watch out for the restaurant in Pest near to the river, some are very expensive compared to other eateries in the city, and the food is not very different. We thought the restaurants in the Castle district were the best. We also visited the Széchenyi baths which would be great on a hot or cold day as there are pools inside and out, all slightly different temperatures. My favourite part of our trip was wine tasting in the Faust wine cellar underneath the Hilton Hotel, well worth a visit. Make sure you validate your tickets on the metro, we forgot and got fined!

Friendly, accessible and lots to see

We really enjoyed Budapest as although there was plenty to see it all seemed easy to get to. We enjoyed Gerbauds and looking round the city. The childrens railway was interesting all the young workers looking very proud and grown up in their uniforms. Don't buy a Budapest card but buy a 3/7 day travel card. If you want to see inside the Parliament building you need to queue for a ticket at 8.30am.

Beautiful Buildings

Most places are within walking distance, but there is a good network of trams, buses and underground trains if required (approx £1 per each trip) There are lots of great buildings, not just the obvious tourist attractions. Good local beer (£1 - £3) depending where you go. Many restaurants to choose from, with many good quality freshly cooked main meals under £10. Bottle of wine with meal from £7. Burger King and Macdonalds are well represented if required

The best thing about my stay was ...

The streets are clean and there are lots of places to visit.

Budapest is AMAZING!!!

Awesome city, so picturesque and beautiful. In awe for the whole three days we spent there and would definitely return again. Vey warm considering it was the middle of November-around 18 degrees every day! Took a great boat ride down the River-a must for anyone visiting. All attractions very close together but you do need two days to see everything-one day for each side of the river.
