Just across the street from our hotel, Danubius Astoria City center. I have never been to a tea house like this. Eclectic decor Turkish music good to good service a wonderful time away from the tourist mentality.....me, my book, hot tea with hot milk. The tea menu was a little overwhelming....I chose what looked like a spiced "chai styled" blend.... More

It was a nice discovery. Really cool and relaxing place where you can find nice magazines. There are many young people. We ate great Carrot broth that you must try. The only thing I didn't like was espresso. It was too sour.

I was introduced to this place by an Arab tourist whom I had a blind date with. After the first shisha I was hooked! This is the perfect place to chill, with the nice variety of teas, cakes, and smokes. Delicious Middle Eastern food as well. It's also tucked in a quiet but very accessible corner. My only minor quibble... More

Traditional Arabic place, food made as it must be (tried hummus and mutabal), they have also lots of teas, coffees, mezzehs and sweets. Sisha is well made too, recommended!!! Service is kind and helpful. If you want an Arabic place this is the best in Budapest. Very classy interior (2 storey), during summer they also have a terrace.

A bit hard to find, unless you're probably a local since it's on a side street off the main road. Once you get to it, you're greeted by outside coffee and tea imbued people, sitting on the patio. A few people were inside due to the cool Budapest nights at this time of year. We wanted to use sheesha so... More

I stopped by this Coffee house mostly because it was posted on Tripadviser. I am a great fan of Good shisha, having spent several years living and working in Bahrain. The Double Apple shisha that I had was of excellent quality and expertly delivered, my coals were properly tended. The Turkish coffee was good, ( for a non Arab Country).All... More

I stopped in this restaurant primarily to use the bathroom and get a little snack. I was suprised by how fancy and elegant the inside was. The chocolate ball with coconut on the outside was absolutely to die for! There was lots of tea and drink options. It smelled wonderful and the staff was very friendly! I wish to go... More

If you are looking for an Orintal place with a good Shisha so this is the place 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻, smiley staff, didn't order much because the plane is to kill the time , but actually it isn't a waist of time, for sure I come back the next time when I visit the city again.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
