Where to stay in Budapest

Due to the turmoil that Budapest and Hungry have endured, it is difficult to find a hotel in Budapest that isn't modern architecture. For my taste, I think if you are going to spend your money, you should at least stay in a hotel that has some character. After all, absorbing the local character is why many of us travel abroad. That said, these are the ones that I chose for you, best location, best price and best accommodations.

For me this is the best Hotel to stay in Budapest. It is really beautiful, the rooms are very spacious.
The hotel is situated in a gorgeous building with an abundance of old style elegance. It´s located within walking distance to many of the sights and there is public transport just outside.

It was fully restored in 2003 while maintaining its neoclassical facade and it's two magnificent glass atrium. The fully restored 19th-century spa, indoor pool, saunas, steam bath, Jacuzzi, fitness room, massage treatment rooms, and more provide an excellent place to relax.
