Once a Budapest merchant’s residence dating back to the 15th century, this boutique stay is now a thoroughly modern urban retreat set in the heart of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed royal district. Steps away are some of the Budapest’s most-visited sites, including Buda Castle and Fisherman’s Bastion, while just across the Danube is Pest, the youthful, perpetually buzzing side of this burgeoning European playground. The 25 guestrooms have mocha or tan furnishings that complement the patterned carpet, and large windows afford views of the courtyard or Castle district. Ask to take a peek at the hotel’s romantic wine cellar (it’s available for private events), which has vaulted brick ceilings and air of medieval intrigue.
In the Area
Spend the day exploring the Castle District, with its cobbled streets, 15th-century castle walls and refined restaurants. Visit the UNESCO-listed medieval Buda Castle, now home to the Hungarian National Gallery and the National Szechenyi Library, loiter around the fairytale-like ramparts of Fisherman’s Bastion, which affords panoramic views of the city, and marvel at the 700-year-old Matthias Church, a flamboyant melange of Romanesque and Gothic styles. Dine on Modern Hungarian cuisine at the much-lauded Costes, whose artistic, seasonally inspired kitchen is helmed by Ferran Adria acolyte Miguel Rocha Vieira.
How to Get There
We booked a short break in Budapest and decided out of the many great value hotel choices to pick the Buda Castle Fashion Hotel as our base. We're very glad we did, it proved to be an excellent choice. Located in the castle district in a quiet street approximately 5 minute walk from the Matthias church, it's a great base from which to start. The hotel reception was very helpful, checking in was efficiently done and the room we were allocated was superb, a lot bigger than we'd expected and very comfortable. Breakfast was included, a buffet style arrangement, and more than sufficient in terms of choice and quality. In the evening there were numerous options for meals and everywhere we went the food and service were excellent.
All in all a great place from which to enjoy a Budapest break and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
What an amazing experience The Buda Castle hotel is located in a very good area with easy access to all that Budapest has to offer but with plenty of restaurants nearby to suit all tastes and budgets The hotel is very clean and welcomingBreakfast options to suit all tastes with no limits to what you might consume!Bus stop just down the street to get you over to the Pest district & if you are in possession of a Bus Pass these are accepted!Overall a very pleasant trip indeed
This boutique hotel is in the heart of the castle area, walking distance to everything, even across the river. It is clean, we'll appointed, and we'll run. The staff is very helpful and professional. And the good price makes this hotel the best value in the city. We will definitely stay here again.
My husband and I booked a stay here for over a week and loved it. The location was excellent, as it is a couple blocks from Buda Castle and Matthias Church. Though close to major tourist attractions, the street was quiet. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and the breakfasts they served buffet-style left nothing wanting. Our room was spacious and clean. I would quickly stay here again if ever I found myself back in Budapest. The castle and church (and this hotel) are at the top of a pretty big hill, so be prepared to work out those quads if you walk down to the Pest side :p.
I recently stayed here on my trip to Budapest. Overall The hotel was nice. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast wasn't of a great standard. Fruit selection and hot food were poor. Location was great and there were good restaurants all within walking distance. There was only one English TV channel in the bedrooms and it was rubbish. Hotel was very quiet and more like a b and b,as the only meal offered was breakfast.
