Whether you’re hitting the city for the weekend or enjoying a cruise before heading down the Danube, Hungary’s capital is the perfect getaway – and we’ve rounded up the best hotels in Budapest for your romantic getaway.
BEST HOTELS IN BUDAPEST
Once you’ve settled into your spot, it’s time to explore… Budapest’s approximately 120 hot springs pump out nearly 70 million liters of warm water every day – wonderful water for various ailments or just for relaxation.
But in addition to being well-maintained (in thermal baths and hotels – the places we have chosen below all have their own resorts), Budapest offers shopping, good restaurants for all tastes and budgets, and a great night out.
This is a self-service environment. Many of our favorite hotels in Budapest are historic, but the luxury they offer comes at a fraction of the price you’d pay for the same level in several European destinations.
It is quick and cheap to get to Budapest from the UK by plane. That said, if you are looking for a destination without a fly, you can do the Budapest train in the UK within 24 hours (Eurostar to Brussels, Nightjet sleeper Vienna and EuroCity train Budapest, or Eurostar to Paris, TGV to Stuttgart and Hungarian sleeper to Budapest).
Our top Budapest hotels are all centrally located, within easy reach of the Danube, great bars, restaurants and shops, and sights including Buda Castle, St Stephen’s Basilica and the Dohany Street Synagogue.
Don’t miss a day of swimming in the Neo-baroque Szechenyi Spa Baths built in 1913, or a night out in the Jewish Quarter with its ruined pubs (bars and nightclubs in abandoned buildings, many with large terraces) and its amazing street food.
