Fantastic placePosted Nov 18, 2015
Pros: #1: Super friendly and helpful staff. The location is fantastic - on a quiet pedestrian street near lots of action. Nice breakfasts.
Cons: The WiFi is a bit spotty. Upgraded routers would be nice.
Location: Many jazz venues. Raday utca has lots of nice restaurants. Central Market Hall is close.
The Butterfly Home was perfect! Super comfortable and a great location. Best of all was the staff, all of them. Really helpful and kind. Got a great general orientation to the city on arrival and great help all through the stay, including help with transportation, reservations, and especially recommendations. Although everyone was fantastic, I want to especially single out Roland. I'm a big jazz fan and Roland provided excellent insights into the jazz scene. There is a lot of jazz to feast on in the area, and Roland's advice really helped me make the most of it. I realize this review is filled with superlatives, but that's how I felt about the hotel. When I return to Budapest, I will juggle my schedule if necessary to make sure I can stay here again.

Quirky B&B In Great LocationPosted Oct 24, 2015
Pros: The B&B was a little quirky but it was clean, spacious and the staff were superb. The breakfast was good too so all round it was not bad at all.
Location: The B&B was within reasonable walking distance of all the major attractions. The Citadel and Castle District a must do just for the views alone.
My wife and I spent a couple of days in Budapest for the first time and were blown away by what a great place it was. Architecturally stunning in places and set on the Danube it didn't disappoint. We will be back and next time it will be for longer. For us the slight downside was eating out can be a little expensive but there is plenty of choices.

Nice LocationPosted Oct 21, 2015
Location: Walking distance from lots of the cultural and historic sites, shops, restaurants, etc.
The Butterfly Home is a nice hotel in a nice section of the city. Fantastic breakfast included with our stay. Staff and owner were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I can't give a complete review as there was a reservation mix-up and they put us up in a studio apartment next door. For what it is worth, the apartment was very nice. Lots of modern amenities including Internet, TV, large bathroom, kitchen, etc.

A great stay!Posted Sep 17, 2015
Location: Close to metro.
They have options for pick up and drop off at the train station or airport. Best breakfast of any of my other hotels/pensions in Europe. Huge room, close to metro, and a mascot dog!

Hidden gem in great neighborhoodPosted Aug 7, 2015 on Hotels
My room was huge and well-appointed, with coffee/tea and a modern bathroom. The windows stretched up to the ceiling and looked out on a charming side street. Breakfast was phenomenal, with cappuccino and omelets made to order, in addition to a lovely buffet layout. The proprietor was very service-oriented, pointing out the best jazz clubs and non-touristy restaurants. The Butterfly Home is right in the heart of restaurants, museums and shopping. If you want to venture farther, public transportation is nearby, and taxis are easy to find. I will definitely stay there the next time I am in Budapest, the Pearl of the Danube.

We stayed a week at the Butterfly Home, Andras and Roland were both very helpful, answering our questions and giving information about the city. The location was ideal just 200 metres from the metro station and 1km from the Gellert Hill, and most of the other sites of interest were within walking distance. The hotel itself was very clean and we had a lounge attached to our room, breakfast was in the restaurant next door, where Andras' father in law cooked up some yummy omelets. If we return to Budapest we would certainly stay there again

Great location in the cheaper end of town- a great location very close to a metro station. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. Coffee was the best I have had for a long time.

Strongly recommended!!Posted Jun 4, 2015
Pros: Quiet, on a pretty alleyway. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Reasonable rates.
Cons: Can't think of anything for now.
Location: Central market, city center, subway, close to the hop-on, hop off bus stop. a lot of restaurants, bars and museums.
Very quiet hotel close to the center of the city and subway. You can't ask for a better hotel staff, I mean Andrea, the owner and manager. He emailed us prior to our arrival with detailed directions with all the options described. He even took the time to warn us to be aware of the pocket-picker, though we never experienced anything like that. When we arrived shortly after noon, he was waiting in front of the hotel to greet us. The breakfast was nice, he will make and serve you coffee. He speaks fluent English and is very helpful in terms of giving you tips about saving money. The hotel is located in a very quiet street, yet close enough to the attractions. It is only 3 minutes from the Central market where you can buy souvenirs and local products to take home. We traveled to 4 countries this time and stayed in 6 hotels. They are all very good, but we have to give the best to this one.1

nice hotel good value for moneyPosted May 11, 2015 on Hotels
Nice hotel close to most main attractions and close to tram stops. Room basic but nice. Delicious breakfast every morning. Helpful host that's happy to point things out on map and make recommendations.

Nice find in a cute neighborhoodPosted May 4, 2015 on Hotels
Great quaint place to stay with personalized service by the owner. The only negative was that because it's not a regular hotel it doesn't have someone at the front desk 24/7. So one night when we came in and the lights weren't working (around 10pm) we had to email the owner and wait to hear back from him. Eventually the problem was resolved (within 30mts to be fair), but just something to be aware of!
