The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
The work that has gone in to preserve this site is incredible - and it's been kind to an accurate depiction of the four periods of history it's been actually used - 1930's (Air raid shelter), 1940's (WW2), 1956 (Hungarian revolution), 1960's to 2002 (Cold war and beyond).
The guide had perfect English. Her narration, tonality, and knowledge was superb....

"Sunday set lunch - superb!"
reviewed 2 days ago by Connector33497
We came here after my son recommended it. We opted for the set Sunday lunch menu which was accompanied by a fizzy Chardonnay. A really good way to try different hot and cold starters plus a main course and dessert. All was superb and was topped off by excellent service. It was the extra finishing touches like delicious bread and...
We were really glad we found this lovely place. So glad we went twice. I had the most delicious Oreo cake and latte, husband had an apple pie and Amercano. There is something so comforting about sitting wrapped in a blanket with hands wrapped round a hot mug of coffee.
I love these classic “Transylvanian chimney cakes”. We tried a number of flavors - coconut, vanilla and nut - all came out hot and freshly made. Quick, friendly service. If you’re in Budapest, you have to try these!

We expected to be delighted by a neighborhood restaurant a bit off the beaten path—and we were right. But what we hadn’t expected was a delightful tasting menu with spectacular food and wine pairings, served in a casual manner by an attentive staff. A real value for what you receive.

What a fabulous hotel! The minute we walked through the door on our arrival we knew we had picked well. Our room was just amazing, certainly had the WOW factor and the view across the Danube was stunning, beyond our expectations. The hotel was in a good location, a short walk to the hop on hop off bus, and within...
What a lovely place to stay. 2 mins walk from the amazing Fisherman's Bastion,the best viewpoint of Budapest by night. The hotel is very well-designed, quiet and private. Good quality throughout. The hotel staff were friendly and attentive but unobtrusive. We had the perfect break here.
Where funky meets chic. There aren't many boutique hotels that offer the kind of fine dining that Baltazar does - but they do, and oh how they do! The service is exceptional, the rooms more than comfortable, spacious and fully equipped with everything one would need, and the location is ideal. Right in the center of the Buda Castle district...
The hotel is exactly in the center of the old city, with amazing views over the river and the other side of the city. Nice rooms with well thought details, really good food (stanate for this kind of hotel) and people working there very friendly. In general I see this a bit more as a business hotel, but also nice...
