–   TOP PICK  – 

HOTEL CLARK BUDAPEST  

 BOUTIQUE HOTEL ON A BUDGET –

What makes this one my Top Pick for a Budapest hotel? 

Main uniqeness: The Danube view from your room, bathtub/bed.  I don’t think you could get such view anywhere else for this price. It’s one of the best angles to see the river shore with the main monuments such as the Parliament, The Chain Bridge and The Castle and believe me its truly breathtaking, waking up to this every day will take your Budapest experience to a whole new level. Please note this hotel is adults only!

WHY? 

Price-Value Ratio. Boutique hotel on a budget, it’s like a 5-star-hotel for the price of a 4 star or even less.

Elegant & modern design. For those who crave beauty in all their surroundings.

Location. Walking distance from main sights on both sides of the river.

View. Make sure you book a room with Danube view and take the perfect Insta-ready pics right from your room or balcony, whenever you want, taking your time.

+ 1. Rooftop Bar (Seasonal.)

One of the best hotel experiences, this hotel meets all the requirements for an amazing stay: excellent location, original design and great facilities, cleanliness, amazing view from our room, genuine hospitality, warm and friendly staff.

Best hotel I have ever stayed in. Location is unbeatable, so close to everything, we could walk to most places we wanted to visit. Staff are incredibly polite and the hotel itself is clean and breathtaking. Everything exceeded my expectations. If we ever come back to Budapest we will certainly be rebooking with Hotel Clark!!

Martina, Ireland

Great value for money, lovely décor and fantastic location. Would recommend to friends and family and would love to return.

The Loft Budapest

 SPACIOUS, COSY, EARTHY –

Main uniqeness: Spacious! And that is hard to find so it’s worth mentioning first. I know that many people feel claustrophobic in small hotel rooms so just being able to live in a spacious place while on vacation might be very important to them. But it’s not just big, it has a nice minimal design with cosy, earthy colors. They have double ceiling lofts and apartments with kitchen, so perfect for families with small children. They don’t have restaurant on site but don’t even need to since you will find plenty of good places as soon as you step out the door. I recommend Fruccola just across – fresh, healthy food often with special ingredients (a great variety – but not only – salads), they also have  daily menu which I love. Haven’t been for a while might just go tomorrow:-)

The location is perfect because it’s next to Vaci utca, the pedestrian shopping street, which means that during the day it’s busy but at night rather quiet. But don’t worry Deak square a transport hub and meeting point is just a few step away as are the major sites like the Basilica or the Gozsdu courtyard with all its restaurants and vibrant night life.

Location was excellent right in the centre but still quiet at night. Service was fantastic. The room was very contemporary with the best aircon ever. Bed super comfortable . The restaurant just around corner is super for breakfast and Hugos 😀

Aria Hotel Budapest

 5-STAR LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTEL 

If you are going to stay in a 5-star hotel stay in this one!

Number 3 on the list is Aria Hotel Budapest, an architectural masterpiece, a boutique hotel with a very special design. It’s right next to the Basilica and it has a super stylish rooftop bar with panoramic view. The theme of the design is music so the hotel’s wings are dedicated to 4 musical styles.

It’s a traditional Budapest building with a central courtyard, which is covered now so it’s inside the hotel now. Normally, I’m not into this kind of room design style but this hotel has such a special atmosphere that I don’t mind the regal interiors. You also get an iPad to use during your stay. All rooms have state of the art sound systems, you also get live entertainment and complementary wine, cheese, cookies, coffee during the day. It also has a spa with pool and hammer.

It was the best of everything. Awesome rooftop. Quiet rooms. Amazing breakfast. Nice staff. Close to everything. They provide a smart phone if needed where you can make local and international calls and use google maps. I would go back here and recommend it 100%.

After visiting this hotel I can understand why it is rated as #1 hotel in budapest. A truly unique romantic hotel with professional staff, great location, beautiful rooms, relaxing spa and pool area. Now what we like the most was the wine hour with amazing live music.

Perfect location and lovely hotel, couldn’t ask for more. All the extras in the room like the iPad and phone, docking station, great tv, great bathroom, very comfortable bed and pillows.. LOVED the free wine and cheese between 4 and 6 with the pianist, fabulous!

Roombach Hotel Budapest Center

  TRENDY 3-STAR BOUTIQUE HOTEL  

It’s right next to the Gozsdu courtyard and also close toDeak square. The rooms are on the smaller side here with minimal style, the lobby and breakfast area have a nice, contemporary design with bright colors. Complementary breakfast is included here. The price is just a little lower than my number 1 pick, Hotel Clark.  If you want to be in the middle of everything, always surrounded by people, this is a good choice for you as a Budapest hotel.

excellent location
friendly staff
clean&bright room
great breakfast

Hotel is well kept and really nice. Is in the downtown but room was quite. Beds are comfortable, room is cozy and restroom as well. Room has air conditioner which is working so good – you can use it as a heating after long outside winter day 😉 Breakfasts were delicious but the same every single day.

Super nice and kind stuff, wide choice for breakfast and great clealiness of the room and bathroom. If I come back to Budapest I would choose that again.

Francesca,

 I loved the location. I liked the room concept. Even though the room was smaller than what I like for a hotel room, it was nevertheless bright and comfortable, while the bathroom size very good as well. It was clean, this is what I appreciated the most.

LOFT Astoria

  GORGEOUS LOFTS & APARTMENTS  

Last but not least, number 5 is Loft Astoria which is the sister of Loft Budapest, also at a very good location, by Astoria as the name shows. I wanted to put this one on the list as well in case the other one is sold out. What is very comfortable here is that the Airport bus stops right in front of the building so you don’t have to walk a great distance with all your luggages from and to the bus stop.

excellent location
fully equipped kitchen
spacious design lofts
soundproof

Brilliant, well equipped nice and big plenty of room for the baby to run around lovely and warm view was amazing Netflix and the tv was a good touch comfy fresh clean beds good travel cot provided would stay here again!! Brilliant location and price.

Everything is new, very clean and modern. What you see is what you get; the apartment is exactly the same as shown on the pictures. Comfortable bed. Enough space for two. Well provided kitchen. Spacious bathroom with a very good shower. Good working airco. Friendly receptionist. Everything on walking distance from the apartment. The easy transport from and to the airport with bus 100E.

Just about everything about the property is amazing… I stayed in a Grand Loft with city views… I must say that I didn’t feel like going out of the apartment … it was simply superb being inside… A special mention for their staff who are extremely friendly and warm… this is one place I would love to come back to …
