B & B Bellevue Budapest
Travel Blogs from Budapest
... Pest. It turned out we were staying in Pest which is more of the shopping and nightlife part, and across the Chain Bridge was Buda which had all the sight seeing. We stopped at a couple places on the Pest side like St. Stephens Basillica before heading across to see Buda. We hiked up a set of stairs to the top of Buda and had a beautiful view of all of Pest. There were many cool buildings and monuments. After our tour, we went back to ...
... and free champagne and wine. It was a really great last evening. Then, in true con tiki style, we went to a bar/club, apparently the only one open on Mondays. It was a lot of fun to just party one last time with everyone. Then in the morning, had to say goodbye to a lot of amazing people and head to Croatia.
PS Met a girl who said to stay (ladies) in the Ana Din Hostel - it's a female hostel and she said it was amazing and would highly recommend it
... the Mausoleum.
One could walk around in amazement for days in this place. Realizing the time and the need to get back to check out and head to the train station, we picked up the pace to head back. But......the eyes continue to be amazed with all the artistic memorials and how each individual or family is honored. This is a sight to observe, breathe in and exhale out. On our way out our walk is once again slowed ...
Personally I'm not a big fan of publicly displaying quotes I agree with and I guess this one is an exception - this was the lesson I learnt from the scariest night of my life. After spending the night in that house alone I refused to go back to the house in the dark. After Gabi came and everything started settling in, I realised that the house is not as haunted as I previously felt.
It was my fear ...

Historical Traveler Reviews B & B Bellevue Budapest
L'idéal pour visiter Budapest
grand calme, bien placé, accueil très agréable et éclairé, chambres propres. Excellent rapport qualité prix (n'allez pas croire qu'il y a la clim, une piscine, ou autre luxe ....tout de même, je n'ai pas dit çà !!!)
Want to go back to Budapest just to stay here again!
I have travelled throughout Europe many times, have stayed in every type of accomodation, and never have I felt as completely at home as I did here! Upon arrival, the owners and I sat on the beautiful terrace and we chatted (If they're reading this, remember me? The girl who loves Petula Clak!) about travelling and music etc, and they provided me with a wonderfully detailed map and gave me plenty of insight on ways to get around. Their restaurant recommendations were spot-on. My room was absolutely lovely, spotlesslty clean and cozy, and very spacious. The shower/toilet were fine, especially by European standards as far as space goes. There was also a really nice balcony in my room overlooking the courtyard; at night I would sit there and listen to some music, enjoy a cigarette, chat with friends at home. Breakfast was perfect--fresh bread, meats, cheeses, cereals, yogourt, etc..you get to meet your fellow guests, which I enjoyed. It's also very centrally located, just about a two minute walk to the Bettany Ter metro (I think I spelled that wrong)
Budapest was a really amazing, interesting city. If you visit, stay here, you will not be disappointed. I will never forget this b&b, and I will definitely return again!
Like Staying with Relatives
Staying at the Bellevue B&B was like staying with a relative who puts you in a comfortable room, introduces you to the other guests, prepares you a satisfying breakfast, and sends you off for the day with the map, suggestions, and directions to have a good stay. From the B&B you can walk up the hill to the castle, or down the hill to the square with the bus/tram.metro station. The location couldn't be better.
Home away from home
This is a wonderful b&b! It is in a beautiful and quiet residential area of Budapest on the Buda side of the river, about 5-10 minutes' walk to Metro/bus/tram stops, restaurants, grocery store and post office. It is also very near to all the sites on Castle Hill.
The proprietors, Judit and Lajos, speak English very well. They are wonderfully helpful, patient, kind and good-humored and they seem to tend to attract a similar type of traveler to their small b&b.
This truly felt like our "home away from home" and I would definitely stay there again should I be lucky enough to travel again to Budapest.
An excellent choice
I strongly recommend this bed and breakfast. The owners were great - very helpful and provided a nice breakfast in the morning. I had a big room with a panoramic window over the Danube all for 47 Euros. The location is also very close to lots of things you will be seeing in Castle Hill, and about 5 minutes walk from the closest metro (though up a lot of stairs).
Great B&B - from seasoned travellers!
The Bellevue is a great place to stay and in a super location. Here's why we liked it:
It is on the Buda side, meaning its more residential and less chaotic than the Pest side where most of the commercial attractions are. Its a 5 minute walk to good restaurants, the ATM, the subway, the Danube, coffee houses, the Castle, and a supermarket. Only caveat is that it requires walking up and down a hill, which may be arduous for more senior travellers or otherwise hampered.
The owner, Judit, is just lovely, full of spot-on recommendations, and an accommodating hostess. Perfect English as well.
Rooms are clean, updated, and large relative to European standards. We booked the room with balcony overlooking the Danube and it had a spectacular view.
As two women travellers, we felt quite safe walking at night around the neighborhood.
Next time, we bring the whole family.
Loved the Bellevue
We stayed here in Oct and found it to be a great place to stay. It was convenient and had some great views. Judit is serves a very good breakfast and she and her husband speak very good English. We would reccomend it to everyone. Jim from Pa
We stayed in Bellevue for almost a week and we had a great time. Budapest is a wonderfull city that needs to be explored carefully, that means: the city won't ´give´ itself immediately, it - except the without any doubt extremely beautiful Danube-riverbanks - has te develope in your mind, at least it had in ours. But when it happens you'll love the place. B&B Bellevue is located at the Buda-side of the city, right beneath the Fishermans Bastion, close to shops, a bank, restaurants and - very good - public transport. But, if you, as we do, like to walk, there is not a single problem either. Everything, except the outskirts, is easily reached on foot. Especially the morning- and eveningwalk across the Chainbridge is recommendable. Judit and Lajos speak excellent English, and are very friendly and helpfull people, there almost isn't a question that will be left unanswered. They know all about locations, transport and they can make arrangements for you if you like. We had a nice breakfast in the kitchen/breakfastroom, at a big table together with other guests from all over the world, wich we found entertaining and interesting (Did you know Hungarian dentists get costumers from all over Europe? Did you know there are Americans travelling trought Europe by train - and loving it? Did you know Tom Lanoye has a twin brother?) So the company is okay, and the food is, but wait till Judit decides it's time to have you taste her omelet! The rooms are clean and well kept and in ours there were fine reproductions of paintings by Klimt. Most rooms have a spacious balcony. Isn't there anything te be said against Bellevue? Well, I can't really think of it.
Great place to stay
This is a great little B&B centrally located in Budapest, very near castle hill. The Bellevue is a few minutes walk from the downtown, so there is very little noise at night (I slept fine with the windows open). But, everything in the city is within walking distance.
The rooms were clean; the breakfasts tasty and ample, and the owners very helpful and friendly. The furnishings (particularly the bed) were somewhat modest, but the cost to stay here is so inexpensive that the overall value of the place can't be beat. I would definitely stay here again. If you can, stay in room 3, which has a balcony and a view over the city.
Very Nice Stay in Budapest
Very well kept, nice location. Great Breakfast, Advice and Hospitality from Judit and her husband. Will return when next in Budapest! Jon & Tammy
