Appartment: Nice new appartments

We stayed four days in Budapest and had chosen an exellent appartment in the town centre as accommodation. This brand new appartment has one sleeping room, a living room with a kitchen, a toilet and a spacious bath room and offers sleeping facilities for up to four people. All kinds of appartments can be booked via internet, for example on page:

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.

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...

Wombats Hostel: Super Clean & Central Hostel

Now as a single traveller a hostel can sometimes be a noisy, hot and slightly daunting experience, but this was not the case with this place. From the minute i walked through the door, all the staff were very helpful. i stayed in the 8 bed dorm room, which was the cheapest option available to me, and the rooms are laid out very nicely. The room i had was in the shape of an L, so felt like two rooms of 4 beds with an onsuite bathroom. Each person was assigned a locker, which operated only with the key you were issued. The locker was big enough for me to store my suitcase in and also had some hangers for those who wanted crease free clothing. This at no extra charge. Bedding was very clean and also at no extra cost.

The bathroom was fairly new looking and very clean mostly, however the shower holder was broken so you had to hold the shower head when showering. This was a only a minor nuisance though.

Each bed, had its own little lamp and power outlet so you could charge your phone or camera over night without worrying that your possessions were so far away.

The hostel itself is only around 5-10 minutes walk from Saint Stephens Church and 5 minutes walk from the shopping district. A metro station which links all three metro lines is also only within a few minutes walk. Really useful when going to and from the airport.

Downstairs in the lobby was also a bar. Lobby has lots of open spaces and on arrival you get a drinks voucher to use in the bar. Most people tend to be very friendly to have a chat to. Wifi is also available FOC here. The Wifi code can be obtained from Reception.

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.
