First off: Made this booking via Agoda , booking number 108034384. However, nightmare from the start. Unlike their sister location, Budapest City Central, there is no good signage. Reception staff from hell- could hardly understand her, bad attitude and icing on the cake was: :yes, we have your reservation but no, we have no room for you. Please go to...

Great little hostel in central Budapest. Nice, friendly staff, good, clean room - according to hostel standards. It is around 3* hotel level, really nice. When I was there the building was under renovation.

One night stay September 2016. Housed in Soviet era building on one of the city’s main roads. Reception is on the first floor, approached via dingy archway and dark courtyard, convoluted route following brass plate direction signs. Once in the hotel, clean but functional and beyond the offer of helping myself to coffee or a cup of water in the...

Nikolett the receptionist was really helpful and accommodating for things to do in Hungary. The rooms were really clean, the bathroom was modern and there was good wifi! If your a light sleeper you may need earplugs as it is truly very central. Would recommend to my friends!

It was great to arrive in the evening and have our room with great view, a balcony and a white wine. The service was really good. The room was quite basic but cute. It was an excellent price. The entrance of the building looks a little creepy, but inside it's fine.

The good points were the location, security, staff, welcome. It's not easy to find but well worth it when you do. The beds in Room 1 are well past their best. Possibly just the mattress but more likely the whole bed. Very rickety and uncomfortable.

This place is really difficult to find but once you find it, it's a little gem. Great value for the price, fantastic location, clean rooms and really friendly staff. The only thing missing is a fridge and the shower is a bit of an experience but once you tame it, it's a refreshing shower that wakes you up! Free tea...

If you can get past the filthy street ground level (2 small signs on either side) & elevator area to follow the signs, this is a nice renovated hotel close to the center for walking. Ask for a 'quiet room' to avoid siren sounds and street noise. It was clean and restful after long flights. The hotel desk clerks are...

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
