CLASSY APARTMENT: EXCELLENT APARTMENT!

I was looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Budapest and was finding it hard! Then I thought of airbnb and went to their website and found "Classy Apartment in the centre."

This site is good as you can see what the apartment is like, what the owner looks like, whether it's available and the fees.
I liked the look and booked. With-in 24 hours, I had confirmation.

We did have trouble finding the apartment, as there are two streets with the same name. We did find it though! This street comes out on to Andrassy Way.
We had made a time for when we would be arriving, so Gergely would be there.
Gergely met us and let us into the secure underground parking area. He was a very nice, friendly person, who showed us the lift, and up we went to the apartment on the 1st floor.

What I had booked for the two of us, was a one bedroom apartment. It had a king size bed, plenty of wardrobe space, the bathroom was great, and I had a washing machine, free washing powder included, ironing board & iron. The kitchen was fully equipped, had everything we needed. The lounge area was huge. Windows could be opened, and then we looked out into the street which wasn't very nice - quite safe, but very old buildings. The apartment was air conditioned/ heated, depending on what time of the year you stay here.
Free Wi-Fi was included in the price. Gergely had plenty of brochures for us and a map and answered any questions we had. When he saw we were settled in, he left.
We did pay 5 euros per day for secure underground parking.
We found we could walk to Heroes square, or catch the bus or metro quite easily.

We were very happy with our stay here. It was quiet and secure. We had a security card to get inside the block of apartments.
May 2013 - A very good price!

For check out and check in between 10 pm and 6 am an additional fee of 5 euro.
NO CLEANING FEE or SECURITY DEPOSIT
NON SMOKING APARTMENT
Minimum stay is 2 nights

Mayer RommsInn: Accomodation in the center of Pest

We were in Budapest in July 2005 and stayed in minihotel “Mayer”. This hotel is located in the very center of Pest. There are 3 metro station nearby: Astoria, Ferenciek tere and Deak Ferenc ter. The pedestrian street Vaci is very close to this place. In July we paid 35 euro/night for the room for 2 persons. Shower&toilette are in the room or near the room (not shared with other guests). There is a mini-kitchen in the hotel.
I recommend to stay here - nice room and very good location.

The hostess name is Ilona Kovatch.

Mariann Apartment: Walking distance from everything!

I found some very good deals at the following web site. http://www.BudapestHotelSearch.com

I ended up booking at the Mariann Apartment. The apartment was very close to everything downtown on the Pest side. It was an easy walk to just about anywhere. :-)

Be forewarned though, most of the smaller hotels/apartments do not seem to take credit/debit cards. You will need to pay them in cash when you arrive, so make sure you know how much you will need. You can get Hungarian Forints at any ATM for a decent exchange rate. There are MANY exchange places in Budapest. Most have competetive rates, but the closer you are to Vaci Utca, the worse the rates get.

I tried to book a room with city center apartments on my second trip to Budapest and they sent me a confirmation email for a "soft" reservation. Basically, they put my name down on a list and if I was the first one to come up with the money, they would rent to me. They told me a Frenchman wanted the apartment and I was leaving for Budapest in 2 days and wouldn't be able to get the money to them, so they rented it to the other person instead. I found the other apartment 2 days before I left for Budapest. :-) So if they have a price for "soft" or "firm" reservations then go for the firm reservation if you want to ensure someone doesn't take your room.

Office tel.: from outside of Hungary 00-36-1-266-4146 or inside Hungary 266-4146
Fax.: from outside of Hungary 00-36-1-266-5563 or inside Hungary 266-5563
Mobile tel.: +36-30-397-5675

It is a full apartment so you can do laundry, cook food or watch TV there.

Backpacker's Guesthouse: Good Hostel, Reasonable Location

A little out of town on the Buda side, what this place lacks in location it more than makes up for with its good vibe. Cheap and cosy.

A good kitchen, Internet, a huge movie collection, drinks available, nice beds, good showers, and a terrace.

Fórum, Novotel, Asztoria, gellért: Szálloda

Since I am not very familiar with hotel prices in Budapest I am unable to tell you exact figures for hotel fares. I staid with relatives for the entire three weeks and did not have to worry about accommodation.

There are a lot of hotels and hostels in Budapest and the pricing depends on the class of the hotel. You can also look for "Panzió" or "Zimmer Frei" signs. These places rent you a room or a small apartment type place for the night. They are usually include breakfast as well. If they don’t, no worry. Food is affordable in Hungary and it tastes good.

On the image there is a concert hall called Vigadó. Beautiful building and it is better than no picture at all. This architectural marvel looks like part of the Notre Dame.

Backpackers Guesthouse

the 5 star rating ive given this place is not easily come by. after staying in nearly 40 hostels in my travels, backpack guesthouse was undoubtedly my favourite...although a little hard to find (i most definately got lost!) this was duly compensated by the friendly faces which greeted me and the homely atmosphere which it oozes! i would highly recommend this hostel, as its facilities are also outstanding..kitchen, hammocks, lotsa movies and really helpful staff, oh and the caving is also awesome...stay at this place!!! :)

Facilities are dormitory. Coast from 1200Ft / person, normally 2000Ft / person.

Official IYH: Only in Budapest ! very expensive, more than 3000Ft/person.

Private Rooms: Local travel agents, such as Ibiz , can find private rooms for you, cost from 2000Ft. / person + fee.

Hotels: Tourinform has all information. They sometimes book a room for you for a small fee.

Zugliget "Niche" Camping: Something in the way

Here a charming camp. The first you´ll see is a very calmed child, who speaks english, german and italian. He´ll show you the camp and so you can choose the place you want.
Maybe you can think that showing the camp it´s a simple work, but the child shows you the camp walking, and you have not see the slopes of buda hills yet...

Mariann Appartments: Ok as a base for the week!

This large privately owned apartment is on the second floor of an ugly building. There are no nice views from the windows. Saying that, it is centrally located and close to both the metro and trams.
It had everything you might need like washing machine and dryer. Colour Tv, small kitchen, bath and shower. The linen was clean but thin and old and so were the towels. Maybe I am a little too fussy.
My big concern was had there been a fire the only way was probably out of the window. There were three locks to contend with before running down the the 2 flights of stairs to get out!!
200 Euros for two people for 4 nights.

Buda Base: Buda Base

Nice and clean hostel. It was right by the Danube with a truly amazing view outside the window - just like the postcards in the shops. It cost just £5 per night and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Budapest.

Mayer Rooms Inn: B&B accommodation in Budapest

We stayed at the Mayer Rooms Inn, a B&B/private rooms type of accommodation, in an excellent location in Pest. We had our own room, which was very large, had its own TV and overlooked the quiet courtyard, while we shared the bathroom, shower and kitchen with the other guests.

Our landlady spoke about as much English as we did Hungarian so we had most of our communicate was in German. It cost 10,000 Hufs per night (about 40 Euro).

Citadella Hotel: Looking for budget hotel in Budapest?

The hotel was clean, staff- very friendly, not any problems but remember-you should book in advance as it's quite small. You may leave your car and move around by public means of transport.

Perfect location - in the citadel on the top of the Gellert Hill (views!), very special atmosphere - as it was a real fortress.

Szõnyi Hotel: confortable and cheap

this is a nice hotel, not so far from downtown, not so expensive, and confortable.
it's located in XIV disctrict, in Szõnyi ùt 38. I was afraid it was noisy because it's along the train railway, but it's very quiet and i didnt hear the train at all.
the hotel is quite new, rooms are cleaned, bed are great. You can use sauna and yacuzzi downstairs, whenever you want.
internet is for free in the hall.
just breakfast is not the best one i had.
i took 12 minutes by walk to reach the Mexikoi metro station.
i spent 47€ for a single room a night.

i just dont suggest to book taxi pick up service from/to airport on http://www.ohb.hu/ because there are cheaper ways...

Ramada Plaza Budapest: Enjoy the thermal spa and a good swim

We were on a tour of Imperial Europe when we visited Budapest. We found the Ramada Plaza an excellent place to stay. It's on the Buda side of the river, across from Margaret Island. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a shuttle bus available for a charge from the hotel to downtown. This must be reserved ahead of time.
The best part of this stay was the spa and pool area. Budapest is known for its thermal hot waters and the Ramada Plaza is one of a few hotels that has the water on their premises.
There were two smaller pools that had very warm water, a large lap pool and a good hot tub. We also enjoyed the saunas and steam rooms and the lounge area. The staff at the spa were very friendly and helpful. There was a bathrobe in the room to wear to the spa area.
The rooms were clean and the bathroom was good size with shampoo and conditioner included. They had liquid soap in the sink area. The lighting was very good - all the lights worked.
Our tour included a full buffet breakfast which was excellent. They had an omelette bar which was cooked according to our request. There was plenty of fresh fruit, crusty breads, vegetables, salads, cereals and lots of cheeses and sliced meats. There was an abundance of choices of pastry, and hot meat. The dining area was very nice.

Definitely the spa and pool area were the best part of this stay. They were lovely and wonderfully comfortable. Also, very convenient, as we did not have to try to find a place on our own to enjoy the thermal waters. You can also purchase juice, fruit and a bit of food in the lobby to the spa.
