Small ,Friendly B+B style HotelPosted Aug 23, 2013
Location: 2 minutes from Fisherman's Bastion and Castle area
Clean room. We had room 3 which had an excellent view of Parliament across the Danube. The proprietor was very friendly. We will definitely stay there again if we're in Budapest!

Quiet spot, clean and conveniently locatedPosted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had an enjoyable stay. The location is perfect for Buda and the castle district and not too far from the metrpo tp get over to Pest. The street is quiet, the rooms clean and comfortable. Viktor the host is helpful and friendly, and speaks good English. Overall very pleased. The breakfasts are very mediocre however - a bit more attention given to this and things would be top-notch for a city break.

Great service, amazing viewPosted May 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
The manager was very helpful. Hotel is up a bit of a hill but only a few mins walk, worth the view. Breakfast on the deck was lovely.

beautiful view and fun locationPosted Nov 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
We stayed in this B and B for two nights and were unhappy to have to leave. The owner is exceptionally nice and easy. We arrived around 8:00 pm, but we had sent and email about our time of arrival, and he was there to greet us. We took the "hotel shuttle bus" from the airport, which had several other passengers to drop off at several other hotels in the city before our drop off, but we did see a bit more of the city at night that way. The location is wonderful, just below the lovely Fisherman's Bastion, all lit up at night. Our room was on the top floor...can't remember why we chose that room, but it was comfortable. The front rooms are larger and have river and Parliament views., with private baths. Maybe we were reeling from the prices of hotels in Italy and decided to economize, as the room we had was less expensive. We shared a toilet room and a shower room with the couple in the adjoining hotel room, which never was a problem. Breakfast was nice... nice rolls, hard boiled eggs, cheese, sliced meat, (I made a sandwich), fruit, juice, coffee, tea, milk, cereal, yogurt. All good. Stay for the price, location. friendly owner, comfort and wonderful view.

The hotel is excellent and the proprietor/manager is very friendly. the only problem is the location high up in Buda, close to the scenic Fishermen's Bastion. From the breakfast room there is a wonderful view over the Danube to the Parliament building. However the short walk from the nearest Metro station involves climbing a steep hill, either going up alleys with steps, or following zig zag roads. This is a drawback when one arrives with luggage.

The perfect base to explore BudapestPosted Sep 4, 2012
A well situated B&B, three minutes walk from the Fisherman's Bastion. The rooms are comfortable and the superior room was very spacious. Some rooms have views across the Danube to Pest. Couldn't fault the service and the propriator was very helpful. The rooms were clean and well-maintained and most importantly the situation was quiet.

Great place!Posted Apr 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
Everything about this pension was great - location, cleanliness, friendliness, comfort. The only lack was the food at breakfast - it was meager and the fruit was old. We didn't care much and everything else was perfect, but if food matters, you might be disappointed.

The Budavar Pension - a fantastic quiet locationPosted Aug 12, 2011 on Hotels.com
We stayed with Victor for five days, and found Budavar Pension to be quiet and clean, the location perfect, and the management very helpful. There was nothing we needed that wasn't provided including advice on events we were interested in. Would highly recommend this place.

ideal locationPosted Jul 3, 2011
we stayed from 12-24 june, this b&b is in an ideal position for the castle which is across the road and is in a quiet position. the hotel is very clean and breakfast has everything for a light start, boiled eggs, cereal, meat cheese and more, victor was very helpful suggesting places to go etc. i emailed him and asked if he could arrange a taxi to pick us up from the airport, we were delayed for 2 hours and guess what the driver had waited for us all for 22 euro's. the red tour bus is well worth the money victor sells the tickets. top tip if you want really good food as reasonable prices when you come out of the b&b turn left go about 200 metres past the first restaurant to the next one which is the gong, ask for clair who is the boss's daughter who will give you an hungarian history lesson in english if you want or any other info you want or maybe like us to hear hungarian views on anything you want to talk about, we were normaly about the last to leave, they were probably glad to see the back of us. all in all a very good holiday.

Wonderful little pension - superb location!Posted May 12, 2011 on Hotels.com
The location is superb: just a few steps up to the Castle District! The rooms are roomy and clean, and the owner and his son were very helpful and friendly. They even accommodated by food allergy (gluten) which was great! I would definitely go back when in Budapest. A head's up: they only take cash, so if you book it through hotels.com, your reservation would be confirmed but it wouldn't be paid for.
