You are wondering if you really are right when you enter through the door and second door (both with buzzer locks) and find yourself in a very worn down (old and charming -yes) hallway entrance and an elevator from 1900 cold and then have to walk on a outside walkway ower a rough inner yard - finally you are inside...

Hi all, i will start from the negatives this time:) a bit pricey, 160e for 2 nights, and not wireless internet in all the rooms. We had room no 14 that is exactly opposite the reception and the internet was working perfectly. Time for the good words: in the center of budapest,next to the metro station, next to vaci street,...

I was intrigued by an earlier review about “not judging a book by its cover” and had reservations as I entered the main door and along the balcony. Thankfully on entering the hotel, I found it well furnished, very welcoming and the staff couldn’t do enough to help. The real bonus came when I sank into the bed at night...

We stayed at Leo Panzio for 4 nights at the end of September 2010. Very convenient location for transport and also a Match supermarket opposite. Two lovely women served breakfast-no English but very friendly and efficient.

Came recommended by Rick Steves and was indeed a very nice small hotel in a great location. On a busy street, but rooms were quiet. Close to many sites, but do utilize Budapest’s wonderful transportation system. The hotel is very close to main Metro stop and just blocks from the Danube. 24 hour staff speak English and are very helpful....

Leo Panzio is one of the best "bang-for-the-buck" hotels in Budapest. Simply "do not judge a book by its cover!" Exceptionally located. Outside, Leo Panzio is in a hulking building that’s seen better days (like many buildings in major cities in Eastern Europe); however, compared to other reviews herein, we did not find the building or neighborhood un-inviting (same for...

This is a really great place, situated in the heart of the city and within walking distance of almost everything. It's superb value for what it offers and the staff are friendly, fluent English speakers and more than willing to help in any way they can. They had great recommendations for places to go/eat etc. This is a top of...

Okay, I'm going to leave the measurement of towel nap and estimate of dust mites to others. (Leo Panzio, I must add, features great nap and no mites.) Yes, I'm going to overlook a few Trip Advisor reviews--as I (with uncharacteristic wisdom) did when I booked-- from ingenuous folk perturbed by the dark, clandestine access that takes you (if you...

Leo Panzio is an excellent location. We found it it Rick Steves and Frommers and booked it on line. Upon arrival, the graffeti covered building made us a little scared and the dark hallway and stairs were not inviting but once we entered the hotel, it was a total transformation. The hotel is clean, modern looking, and quaint. The person...

We stayed here for five nights in April and couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay. We actually stayed at Le Meridien (five star hotel, I believe) for two nights as well, and we ended up rating Leo Panzio just as high because it was a smaller place with a homier feeling that was just as professional.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
