Good For Couples
Close to centre location
I travelled during the Russian New Year & Christmas Holiday seemed a very quiet time of year for foreign visitors, the Budapest restaurants were closed at this time but I was able to use the facilities of the adjoining Peter 1st 5 star hotel, could walk there indoors via corridors and lifts. Had breakfast in the restaurant which was only open for breakfast and prepaid evening meals in the lobby bar both very satisfactory.
Supermarkets nearby with top quality bread and good variety of goods only a short walk from hotel.
Take your kettle and buy water to boil for endless supply of hot drinks in room. TV good with plenty of channels including BBC World, CNN.
Unique Quality: The Budapest is a very comfortable 4* hotel, my room spotless overlooking a quiet street, hot room but weather was mild outside but better too hot than cold, was able to have window wide open. Weather has now turned incredibly cold a few days after my return to the UK so room probably just at the right temperature now.
The Budapest is situated only about ten minutes straightforward walk from Red Square so location and cost of staying there are its finest points, staff all pleasant, the male staff seem stern but it is just their way always helpful when needed.
Hotel price very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area that cost a lot more.
Never been inside.
The advertized rates come to some 200 USD / night / standard double - nothing unusual, to my mind. Not that I fancy staying there, though. If on a budget, I suggest skipping hotels altogether and using Home Exchange.
Unique Quality: 'Budapest' is indeed 5 minutes' walk from the Kremlin, it's nearly 150 years old and it does have a character.
Anyway, it did when I saw it last - 10 years ago.
An excellent choice
Relying solely on the Internet, I chose to stay at the Hotel Budapest. It was one of my best decisions. This older hotel (19th century) has seen better days. But the people are helpful, the hotel is small and comfy (only 125 rooms on seven floors), and a fair amount of someone's money has paid for some nice touches: my room, though small, was immaculate, sporting a brand-new Ikea armoire (complete with room safe for valuables). The doors even have electronic passcards! And breakfast is served in your room every morning. Not to mention that Red Square is only a fifteen minute walk away! All for the price of $95USD per night! Unless you want to spend a fortune in a fancy hotel, I find it hard to believe you can do much better than this little gem.
