    Good value

    by

    I staid there 4 nights mid-June and can say that it is a good choice. It is a small, boutique type hotel. Reception and restaurant for breakfast are small but nice. Reception is efficient and kind.
    Situation on the Buda embankment of the Danube at 5 minutes walk from the "chain bridge" is favourable for communications. Is it a noisy surrounding ? There is along the river a two lane avenue on a lower level. Next on a higher level there is a promenade for pedestrians and bicycles under some trees, a tram line and a one way lane for local traffic.
    From my room on the 9th floor I had no noise at all (except the elevator machinery located at that upper level). From the restaurant on the ground floor or outside from the sidewalk the noise was moderate, nearly nil at night.
    The trams start around 5 a.m. It should be noted that the five stars hotels on the other side of the river have also trams, busses and other traffic in front of them.
    The rooms are large and well furnished. The negative point is the small douche room.
    Although the sun started shining on the window around 5 a.m. in June the air-conditioning of my room (under the roof) was efficient even at 30°C outside.
    The breakfast buffet is not up to a 4 star class although one can order eggs and beacon. The food is on display in front of the window and is warmed up by the sun. This is not recommended for yoghurt, cheese or ham. In summertime they should refresh this part of the buffet.
    Conclusion: Hotel Victoria gives quality for a reasonable price. I booked at 118 €/night, breakfast incl., but as the HUF had decreased against the EUR I finally paid only 112 €/night.
    In London I would have a 2 star hotel for that amount, in Paris or Rome a 3 star with view on a wall !

    Unique Quality: The view (from the level 4 and higher) is fantastic. The fact that there are only 3 rooms perlevel (9) makes it a quiet hotel (no noisy tourist groups).

    Directions: On the Danube river bank, Buda side.

  • Great Location

    by

    Stayed at the Victoria in March 2006; this is a comfortable small (27 rooms) hotel with fantastic views of the Danube, Parliament, the Chain Bridge and Margaret Island. The bedroom was spacious, the bathroom was well equipped and the staff were great. Breakfasts served overlooking the Danube with good breads, cereals, cold meats, cheese and eggs on a buffet and hot dishes to order from the kitchen.

    The girls on the desk were very helpful with restaurants, taxis and directions. Trams stop just up the road or a short walk to the Metro at Batthany Ter where there are good cafes.
    Turning away from the Danube you can reach the Fisherman's Bastion by climbing the steps from one of the side streets. Easier still catch the funicular up and walk down.

    The hotel can arrange an airport pickup at very competitive rates.

    Jewel on the bank of the Danube

    by

    This is an excellent , small hotel on the Buda side, situated on the Danube.

    Unique Quality: If possible stay in one of the rooms on the 9th floor. There are only 2 rooms on this floor, but both have a balconey that afford a beautiful view of the Danube and the city. The other floors do not have a balconey. Caution: the elevaor only goes to the 8th floor,so you have to walk up one floor, but it is well worth it.

    Directions: Buda side

  • Great location and great views of Pest

    by

    Right on the Buda side of the Danube. New hotel. Large rooms by European standards. Ask for a room on the upper floors for the best views of Pest, the Parliament Building, the Chain Bridge, and all of Pest. All rooms face the river and the hotel itself is less than 100' from the river bank. Trams run right in front of the hotel, and there is a metro station about three blocks away.
    Very friendly and helpful staff.

    Unique Quality: Fantastic views!

    Directions: Riverfront on the Buda side.

    Hotel Victoria, Buda

    by

    Good value small modern hotel on the banks of the Danube, just below the castle district, and opposite the Parliament building.

    We stayed here for five nights in September 2000. The rooms are large and nicely furnished, with huge wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the river, and Pest on the other side.

    It is a 10/15 minute walk to the nearest metro (Batthyány tér), but there are trams which run along the embankment outside the hotel.

    Unique Quality: All rooms have large windows overlooking the Danube.

    Directions: On the western Danube embankment, just north of the Chain Bridge.

    A view of the Danube from every room

    by

    I have stayed here 4 times between 1998 and 2000. Now that the Art Hotel has opened with the same views and a much larger price Hotel Victoria is even a better choice.
    .
    The 2006 prices are much higher, but, in relation to other hotels with the same view the hotel remains a good value.

    Unique Quality: First -- every room has a view of the river, the parliament building and the chain bridge. That's hard to beat:) Second -- it is a 5 minute walk to the funicular to Castle Hill and to the Chain Bridge. In the other direction it is 8-10 minutes walk to the Bathyanyi Ter metro station. [on the Red line] -- so it's in Buda, but it's awfully convenient. Third: The rooms are very modern and the staff is very professional and helpful.

Pay a little more for another hotel

Stayed at the Victoria for only two nights in early March, 2005, on business.

Positives:

- great view of the Danube and Pest side of the city from all rooms
- boutique-style hotel
- staff tries to be helpful

Negatives:

- the one big negative is the NOISE. Even with windows closed, the traffic and tram noise was constant and extremely annoying, as the lines for these are directly below the hotel windows. The trams operate 16 hours a day and they are frequent - every 10 mins. The road below is not a road, it's a friggin 3 lane highway with cars, motorcycles and truck trailers speeding by at up to 100 km/h 24 hours a day

- I had a problem with tourists partying well into the night, which forced me to change hotels. This hotel seems to cater to a lot of low-budget tourists - you know the kind.... paying $30 for a flight, drinking too much, too loud (can anyone say "Mother Britain"). When I called reception to complain about the noise at 1:30 am, they did nothing about it. So the next day I left and checked into a better hotel. Payed a bit more, but at least I could sleep.

- breakfast is minimal - how bout some real jam with those croissants? It's the least they could offer for 80 euros/night.
