Good-Value Luxury Hotel in a Historic Neighbourhood

Baltazár Boutique Hotel – a lovely hotel in the historic Országház utca in the northern corner of the Castle.
The Hilton Budapest City is located at a less scenic neighbourhood: in the WestEnd shopping centre near Nyugati Train Station. Lots of opportunity for shopping, eating out, great public transport connections (M3 metro, trams 4, 6) make it a good choice for a quick city break or a business trip.
