My husband and another couple will be visiting Prague and Budapest in Sept 2019, what hotels would you recommend that are close of most sites. Not looking for least expensive but great has great accomodations, food, etc.
Just checked out of the K+K Opera in Budapest. Very nice, spacious (for Europe) rooms, prices around 100 EUR for double occ room with breakfast(very good). Lots of nearby restaurants, public transportation (M1 subway line a block away).
We stayed at the Hotel Hastal in Prague. Wonderful. Book directly with them
I also stayed at Hotel Hastel in Prague. Highly recommend. Great Location. Nice breakfast. We had a fairly big room. We arrived at 7:30am from Budapest. Would you believe they immediately gave us a room?
Due to great reviews from this Forum we have booked Hotel Hastel Fall 2019. The reviews on Booking.com have been excellent. "Well appointed, location perfect, charming family run, delicious breakfast, rooms spotless, quiet."
Hotel Grandium in Prague. Near Wenceslas Square on a very quiet street with a great buffet breakfast included. Nice clean rooms. Near a metro stop.
We also stayed at the K&K Opera and absolutely loved it-nice rooms, the location was great. Highly recommend it, if we ever are lucky enough to return to Budapest we would stay there again.
In Budapest we stayed in the Hotel Victoria, Buda side, was in RS book. Ask for a 3rd floor or higher. It looks directly across the river at the Parliament building. We swear they film the Viking cruise shot of the boat cruising in front of the parliament building from this hotel. One evening we opened the drapes, sipped wine and just admired the lights and view from our room, magnificent. Short walk to the Chain bridge. In Prague we stayed in another RS recommended place, HotelBrewery Mediviku. Great location, easy walks to everything, nice rooms, right on tram line and across the Blvd to metro stop. Forgot to mention that Victoria has an old room adjacent that serves tea in an atmosphere that brings you back in time to an almost Victorian experience. Enjoy these two wonderful cities, Hank, Novato CA
Hotel Hastel has a lovely backyard type area where you can sit and enjoy a drink. They also had a small table in the lobby with coffee/tea in the afternoon and wine in the evening.
I loved staying at the Boutique Hotel Victoria Budapest right on the Danube facing the Chain Bridge and the Parliament building. Try to get a corner room that has windows facing not only across the river but also gives phenomenal views up or down the river as well as great views of the city. It’s a few hundred feet from the Chain Bridge which leads to the Pest side of the city and the Buda Funicular that goes up the hill to the castle area.
So excited to see the recommendations for Hotel Hastel !! We are booked for end of May with them - read tons of reviews and it seems the location is great and it’s a smaller family run type place , which is exactly the type of hotel we look for ! Price was good too ( we were a bit surprised that Prague’s prices were a bit higher than we expected)
