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.

Christmas Market break with class!

Booked this hotel for two nights De Luxe Double Room with chain bridge view including breakfast based on previous reviews and I was so happy I did. Beautiful decor and very spacious open lobby with plenty of elevators.Went for the Christmas markets which were a five minute walk from the hotel. Its a fabulous hotel in the perfect location overlooking the Danube. Staff couldn't do enough for us and were so efficient. This was our first time ever to stay in a 5* hotel as it was so affordable. Best breakfast EVER with so much to choose from. Will visit Budapest in the future in warmer weather and the Sofitel Chain Bridge Hotel will be where we will be staying for sure. Great, great break.

Great!!!

This hotel was really beautiful. Rooms were spotless and more than comfortable. The whole stay was amazing. Staff were helpful and courteous. Breakfast was a banquet. No language barrier either as they all had an acceptable understanding of English.....however there was one thing we found disappointing. We had booked a double room and we got 2 single beds. We didn't ask to be changed whereas in hindsight we should have! We didn't want to be a nuisance but a doube bed on holidays would have been lovely!!!

Weekend getaway

Stayed at Sofitel Hotel for the weekend great location with fabulous views of the Chain Bridge and Castle. The room overlooked the river and was a good sized double. Breakfast on Saturday was very busy and the staff were not very organised so we had quite a wait to be seated. Would definitely go back to this hotel for location and experience.

Service - superb!!!

When I arrived at check in I was informed there was a mistake in my booking and I was being transferred to another hotel which was a bit disappointing. The front of house manager could not have been more helpful and took us by taxi the very short journey to The Four Seasons Gresham Palace. He left me his card and when I returned for the afternoon he had left a box of sweets in my room as a further expression of apology. I have since spoken to him by telephone and cannot wait for my next trip to Budapest to stay at the Chain Bridge. My stay at Gresham Palace was 5 star. Thank you Alpha Rooms for making these hotels accessable.

The best thing about my stay was...

The ambience and superb service.
