This B&B is grat in every way. The location is handy just below the Fishermans Bastion and a short walk from Batthyany Metro station (line 2). All sights at Buda are just a walk away. Service is great, Victor is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and peaceful, and if you have a room with a view, that's what...

We stayed here almost for a week and everything was just perfect. Viktor, the innkeeper, was so friendly and helpful. It is located up on the hill, very close to Fisherman's Bastion, so it is very easy to get to the hill areas including the castle. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Budapest.

Staff were incredibly friendly, he went above and beyond. For example i mentioned in passing that we'd tried to visit parliament the day before but tickets were sold out. As we came down later he told us he'd checked online and there were definitely tickets available for that day. Great location too, literally next to the fisherman's bastion. We had...

Viktor was an outstanding host, friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was quite large and very comfortable. The location was ideal for walking and public transport. We would definitely go back to Budapest and definitely back to Budavar Bed and Breakfast.

Six night stay. Room overlooked the street without the promised view of the Danube but was spacious. Bed wasn't the most comfortable and the pillows were old, flat and tired. Room was clean and tidied daily. Toiletries were not included, just a pump bottle of liquid soap. No tea/coffee facilities in the room but a kettle was available in the...

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
