Hotels in Budapest
Budapest hotels are luxurious, and the range of sites and locales means that you can find a hotel to suit your needs and tastes, whatever they are. Among the best hotels in Budapest, though, is the Boscolo Budapest Hotel, located ten minutes from the Danube and in easy walking distance to Buda Castle Hill, the Opera House, and other Budapest attractions. A sophisticated and contemporary reimagining of the original 1894 building that really does look like a palace, the Boscolo Budapest Hotel has previously hosted such guests as the Dalai Lama and Paris Hilton.
The InterContinental Budapest is another popular Budapest hotel that’s situated close to the major shopping area of Váci utca. Suites have views over the Royal Castle, the Chain Bridge, and the Fishermen’s Bastion, and there’s a luxurious spa complex and a restaurant in the hotel. Hotels in Budapest offer thermal springs as part of the hotel. The Rácz Hotel & Thermal Spa is located next to a historic Turkish spa and offers a blend of stylish contemporary design and parkland locale.
This extravagant, grand hotel built in French Renaissance style was a centerpiece of Hungary’s celebration of its first thousand years.
In 2009, all 402 of the rooms in this squat glass tower close to the Chain Bridge were completely overhauled. The renovation? A modern, open, and airy take on Biedermeier style that makes this hotel the top property in the capital city.
Formerly called the New York Palace.
Just a five-minute stroll from the Danube, this five-star boutique hotel occupying the 1918 Adria Palace is within shouting distance of Budapest's most iconic sights: the Hungarian Parliament, Buda Castle, and Chain Bridge are all nearby.
The 48-room property lights up the Danube River with a luminous glass façade (it’s composed of 150 panels that rotate and change color throughout the day). Glass bridges connect the guest rooms to the lobby, which has a transparent floor revealing Roman ruins underneath.
The Art’otel Budapest is part of a small, aesthetically minded chain that is considered the pioneer in the artists-designing-hotels trend. Art’otel invited American artist Donald Sultan to incorporate oversized images of needles, thread, and buttons into the hotel’s carpets and wall hangings.
Once home to the Palace Hotel, this restored landmark property occupies a 1911 Art Nouveau building not far from the Hungarian Opera House.
Affordable, unadorned guest rooms with Danube views.

At home on the city's most prestigious avenue, this five-star boutique hotel dating to 1937 was constructed in an eye-catching Bauhaus style.
Opened in 2008, this boutique hotel is located in one of the most diverse and engaging neighborhoods in Budapest. Famed shopping mecca Vaci Street is just steps away, and the Danube, the city's theater district, as well as dozens of historical attractions, are also nearby.
