Where to Stay in Budapest?
Most of Budapest’s tourists find somewhere to stay in district five, which is the inner city area of Budapest and has loads to see and do. The Vaci Street shopping area slices the area in two, with the Vorosmarty Ter square, graced by the decorous statue of poet Mihaly Vorosmarty, at one end and the frantically busy and always enjoyable Great Market Hall at the other.
Take the funicular from Clark Adam Ter at the Buda end of the Chain Bridge up to the Castle Hill area for the big hitters of Budapest sightseeing – Buda Castle, Matthias Church and the Fishermen’s Bastion. The oldest part of the city, there are places to stay here but expect to pay a premium for your location.
The leafy sixth district of Budapest, Andrassy, also makes a great place to stay with its wide sycamore tree-lined avenues, cluster of cafes, restaurants and bars and cultural hub around Andrassy Avenue where you can take in a show at the Opera House, hear the classics at the Liszt Ferenc Music Academy or see a concert at the Operetta Theatre.
Budapest Accommodation Options
Most of the five star hotels in Budapest are in the fifth district and that’s no surprise as you’re right in the heart of downtown Pest. It’s packed with restaurants, parliament and administrative buildings, company head quarters and all manner of shops. If you fancy splashing out, try Le Meridien Budapest or the Sofitel Budapest Maria Dorottya for luxury slap bang where the action is.
