Finding the best Budapest hotels is not an easy task since the city offers more than 300 hundred hotels and other lodgings and the number of new accommodations is growing year by year. Here I tell you about some of the best hotels in Budapest.
You won't do better than the Gellert, one of the oldest hotels in town with a wonderful tiled Turkish steam bath and spa, on the banks of the River Danube in the Buda district. With its art nouveau interior and high-domed ceilings, you can steep in the atmosphere of the Austro-Hungarian empire. Once you've had enough of perspiring, there's a stylish central European coffee shop serving pastries, cakes and ice-creams.
Right in the centre and close to the Danube, Zara, which was opened last year, is one of the few such hotels in the city, offering something intimate and chic, rather than the historic. It's on the elegant Vaci Street with its boutiques and coffee houses.
Green Bridge Hostel
Close to all the important sites, including the Gellert spa, the Danube and a large local market, the Green Bridge Hostel is an unpretentious and convenient place to lay your head. In addition to comfortable beds, the friendly Australian-Hungarian couple who run it also offer bottomless coffee throughout the day and a free wireless internet connection.
Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal
The Grand in Pest is one of the places to be seen and once again will transport you back to a bygone era. It was opened for the Millennium Exhibition of 1896 when one of the guests was singer Josephine Baker. In true Budapest style, it also has a Turkish-style spa.
This lovingly-restored hotel, with its 18th-century stone walls, is one of the oldest buildings in the historical district of Budapest and simply oozes "times past" charm. The rooms are light and airy, the prices extremely reasonable and the breakfast is a feast-like buffet.
A hideaway in a leafy part of the city, the Beatrix has won several awards and has also earned a mention in the Good Hotel Guide. There are singles and doubles as well as an apartment which sleeps up to four. Escape to the garden, complete with a fish pond, barbecue, deck chairs and hammocks.
