Like any cosmopolitan European city, Budapest has a dazzling choice of accommodation, from cheap hotels to super luxury abodes. Budapest is an excellent place to discover on foot, with many of the main attractions within walking distance of each other. You’re never too far away from the city's highlights when you book a Budapest hotel.
See the Sights from Your Hotel in Budapest
Budapest's majestic Buda Castle is on the must-see lists of many Hungary-bound travellers, along with the Hungarian National Museum and Hungarian State Opera House. There’s plenty here to keep everyone occupied, whether they're interested in art, architecture or history. Others may be satisfied to simply admire the buildings from the outside while taking a leisurely stroll along the Danube's banks.
From Boutique to Big Brand Budapest Hotels
Many major hotel brands have a presence in Budapest, and their four-star and five-star offerings are very appealing. But there are plenty of smaller locations that offer the same level of service and luxury if you want a personalised boutique hotel experience in this enchanting Hungarian city. Use the Expedia search tool to help choose the right hotel in Budapest for your taste and budget.
Taking Your Family to Budapest
As a family-friendly destination, there are plenty of child-friendly hotels in Budapest. During the day, take the little ones to attractions like Budapest Zoo and the Palace of Miracles science museum. By night, many hotels offer cribs and roll away bed options. Families can either stay in one room together, or request adjoining rooms for a little more space. You could also try an apartment or aparthotel for self-catering amenities, so preparing bottles and baby food is easier.
Budapest Hotels on a Budget
Hungary's capital is a popular city for backpackers to visit, and there’s a good choice of cheap hotels and hostels to be found. Other budget options include a range of B&Bs and guesthouses that can often be found in lesser-discovered areas of Budapest, but that are still ripe for exploration. You could happen upon wonderful restaurants to dine on goulash or other Hungarian staples. And of course, you can indulge in some of the region’s big-bodied wines.
Budapest Hotels near the Danube
The Danube River runs through Budapest, and you will find both budget and luxury hotels along the river front to make the most of the lovely water views. But even if you don’t stay on the waterfront, the Danube is never too far away. Budapest has an excellent transport infrastructure if you don’t fancy walking to it. Wherever you stay, make time for a stroll along the Danube, crossing somewhere like Margaret Bridge to take in the sights.
Stay near the Shopping in Budapest
Shopping is a major draw in Budapest. The Arena Plaza Shopping Mall, Corvin Plaza, and Great Market Hall are retail therapy hotspots, and you can find a good choice of hotels and apartments around the main shopping areas, so you won’t have to carry your purchases too far. Further afield is Ecseri flea market, one of the biggest in Central Europe. This is where you’ll find some traditional or eccentric trinkets to give to your family and friends.
