From fancy hotels to party hostels – where to stay

You can book hotels, hostels and pensions at a better price compared to other European cities. Some of the wellness hotels provide thermal water and / or a historic spa.

The choice is yours: cheap party hostels with little pools and funky courtyards; boutique and design hotels with a great view; nice and comfortable 3- star and 4 -star hotels or luxury hotels along the Danube with stunning architecture. The closer you are to the Chain Bridge and the Danube, the better the location. If you are looking for peace, choose a hotel in the Castle District, on Margaret Island or in Buda.

If you want to be close to the best pubs in town, the 5th, 6th or 7th district or the Jewish quarter, especially Király Street is the place where you want to stay. If you feel like diving into the excitement: a 4-starred family friendly hotel is attached to Aquaworld, one of the biggest adventure baths in Europe.

Short term apartment rentals are popular in town: you have more space and privacy from just 40 €. The recommended areas in Pest are around the Opera House, Andrássy Avenue or Király Street. If you want to stay at a campsite in Buda, try Zugliget, Ave Natúr, Aréna, Haller or Római camping.

Keep an eye out for special offers such as the Budapest Winter Invitation: if you stay at least 2 nights, you'll get free entry to a thermal bath plus one night as a present. There is never a bad time for a romantic and exciting getaway in this city, hotels and hostels always have low prices.
