    I love your recommendations. I am traveling to Budapest in June for my 1-year wedding anniversary and I haven’t book a hotel yet. The Corinthia looks amazing!

    • Vicki says:

      I think hostel standard has certainly improved since I first started traveling (back in 2008!) but I feel like I’ve done my hostel time – I’ll be sticking with you at the 3* and above level!

  2. Barb says:

    The Boscolo Hotel is my favorite on the list. Sometimes I go there to do some work at the New York Cafe, when I am in Budapest.

  3. Megan says:

    This is a great round up for anyone traveling to Budapest! I like that they have a few nice looking budget hotels. That’s likely where I’d end up but of course I’d like to try out all three five stars!

    • Vicki says:

      Thanks Megan! I’d love to try the 5* but I always go for the budget end too – they end up being such good value it’s hard to pass them up!

  4. Tami says:

    What a perfect resource for hotels or places to stay in Budapest. I love how you covered the range from hostel to luxury. There’s definitely something for everyone!

  5. Nisha says:

    This must be my lucky day. I am getting to see all the posts that are going to be most useful to me. We are planning a trip to Eastern Europe and Hungary is definitely on. 🙂 Thanks.

  6. Samantha Sparrow says:

    I am actually currently saving up to take my Mum to The Corinthia Hotel Budapest, as we believe we both deserve a bit of luxury and the spa facilities definitely won us over when looking! However I must say I’m pretty impressed by the look of the Katona Apartments!

    • Vicki says:

      Aww – what a lovely thing to do for your mum! The Corithia was would be pretty special stay for me as I very rarely shell out for luxury accomm, unless its a special occasion!

  7. Vicky and Buddy says:

    This is a really great round up; thanks for including all budgets. I really like the Katona Apartments, especially because they are soundproofed. After exploring all day it’s nice to get back to a nice and relaxing place.

  8. Vivek Sharma says:

    The historical city Budapest is stuffed with many luxurious hotels for tourists. Many hostels are there which help you cut-short your budget. The hotels given here are incredible. Their charge depends on their star counts. I am not ignoring the hostels. They are also looking pretty. Generally tourists become choosy in picking their accommodation as they have to spend more time in it than traveling outside. It is the truth!
