Since we had no idea what they were talking about through the speakers, we headed towards a bridge to cross the river and go to the Castle. We stopped for a minute to see if we could work our what was happening. On the large tv screens, there was a man getting into a ...

One thing I have become adept at in European cities is politely ignoring anyone who looks like they may be selling anything. So when someone asks if I am looking for any tours today, I give them the usual polite "no, thank you" without making eye contact. Only when I have passed by do I realize I have just shunned the nice American couple from yesterday’s tour. Luckily they are amused ...
I barely remember my travel to Budapest, I was half sleeping when I woke up at 2:45 (getting a few hours of sleep) riding the bus to the airport and then getting on an airplane. Maybe I fell asleep. That's highly likely. The whole hour and a half drive was terrible due to the fact there were annoying drunk people heading back to Pisa after a fun night in Florence. Our flight finally started to board at 7:30am and we were lucky enough to get seats next to each other. I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Kapital Inn Budapest
Wäre am liebsten eingezogen!
Das ist wirklich die angenehmste Unterkunft in Budapest! Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, eine wunderbare Dachterrasse, auf der von Frühstück bis DVD-gucken alles möglich ist.
Das Personal ermöglicht nahezu alle Wünsche, von Stadttouren bis hin zu speziellen Frühstückswünschen, auf eine sehr liebevolle, persönliche Art.
Voir Budapest et y rester !!!!
Nous avons passé une semaine dans un cadre exceptionnel. La localisation de cette pension à Pest est déjà un avantage. Cette partie de la ville étant la plus dynamique est la mieux desservie par les transports en commun. Elle se trouve de plus tout près de l'avenue Andrassy, axe prestigieux qui est extrêmement commode pour comprendre la géographie de Budapest (il mène directement aux bains Széchenyi, les meilleurs de la capitale à notre avis).
Dans un immeuble ravalé depuis peu d'un jaune du plus bel effet, la pension, totalement neuve (ouverture avril 2007), sur deux étages, est remarquablement aménagée. Tout y est prévu pour assurer au mieux le confort des résidents. La décoration intérieure est de grande qualité, admirez au passage les toiles du jeune peintre contemporain hongrois qui ornent les murs !!!. On s'y sent parfaitement bien.
L'endroit le plus extraordinaire est la terrasse qui a été ouverte sur les toits, au-dessus de la cour intérieure de l'immeuble. On y passe des soirées et des matinées extrêmement agréables, c'est aussi un lieu d'échange avec les autres voyageurs.
Les chambres sont belles et rationnelles. Elles disposent de la climatisation, une literie de qualité, de toutes sortes de choses (télévision, lecteur de DVD, liaison Wifi etc.) qui rendent le séjour serein.
Le plus important sans doute revient à la personnalité de nos hôtes. Grands voyageurs et plutôt expérimentés sur les modes d'accueil touristique, nous avons été bluffés par la disponibilité de Scott et d'Albert, inventeurs d'un concept qui pourrait être mis en oeuvre partout : aucun paiement supplémentaire lié aux facilités offertes par la pension (télévision, petit déjeuner avec patisseries "maison", réservations de billets de train, de taxi etc. la liste n'est pas limitative) le service d'un hôtel 5 étoiles sans ses inconvénients.
Il se dégage de cet endroit une atmosphère particulièrement chaleureuse, presque familiale. On apprend sans doute sur Budapest en s'y promenant mais aussi en discutant avec les autochtones, catégorie dans laquelle nous pouvons ranger les gérants de Kapital Inc. qui nous ont expliqué avec beaucoup d'acuité la situation actuelle de la Hongrie, pays en pleine évolution et de fait passionnant !
Bref, absolument rien à reprocher à ce lieu de villégiature, sinon peut-être la hauteur du bâtiment et les trois étages qu'il faut gravir par l'escalier, encore que nous avons constaté les vertus de ces petits exercices matinaux et nocturnes pour réduire les effets du goulasch sur nos organismes.
Une adresse à recommander absolument. Nous comptons bien, de toute façon, y revenir au plus tôt.
Un conseil à Scott et Albert : ne changez rien surtout !
This is the place to stay
Just stop looking for somewhere to stay and book this. Gay, straight, it doesn't matter, the place is gorgeous, you'll be pampered, advised where to go, eat, bathe - and above all you will look forward to arriving back there after a day of museums and palaces.
I cannot fault the place at all (even the 3 flights of stairs are marble, palatial and worth the walk) - impeccably clean, the hosts are real hosts and very considerate (even arranging train tickets for us etc.), the location is perfect (around the corner from the Terror Museum - the most impressive museum I've ever been to), transport is easy (the metro line to the centre (the centre is a 10 min walk) looks like something Mary Antoinette would have used to visit her dairy at Versailles).
And Albert is a fountain of info about Hungary, Budapest, it's politics, history, future. Brought the place alive.
So just book it, you won't be disappointed.
Book here, book now!
We stayed there 2 night in July 2007, and quite simply this was the best guesthouse I have ever been to. The owners are the kindest and most helpful people you could meet. The place is stylish, quiet, friendly, perfectly located... The terrace is awesome, the breakfast is fantastic, the building is renovated with the greatest taste. But above all it is the atmosphere of the place and the lovely owners that will make your stay memorable. It is gay friendly but you don't have to be gay to enjoy it! Budapest is an amazing town, Kapital Inn makes it even better.
A Great Place
For the ladies, if you go to Budapest, the place to stay is the Kapital Inn. We found the Kapital Inn on-line at purpleroofs.com. It had only opened about a month prior to our arrival in May. We contacted them directly and they didn't have the room we wanted originally but they worked it out for us and we got just what we asked for.
We drove to Budapest and after a bit of difficulty traversing the highways due to our lack of understanding Hungarian road signs, we arrived at our destination. Finding parking was easy, maybe we were just lucky, but never the less we were able to park only steps away from the building. If you are unable to find street parking there is public parking close by. We find the Kapital Inn listed at the door and press the buzzer and are immediately greeted by a cheerful and friendly voice, the door opens. We walk in and our immediate comment is "Oh my God, what have we gotten ourselves into?" Have we made a mistake? We view the courtyard of the building and are not impressed and somewhat apprehensive. The courtyard certainly needs work but we didn't let that sway us. Bounding down the stairs is this tall American with a friendly voice, a nice smile and with energy to spare, its Scott. We now have to tackle the 3 flights of stairs up to the B&B. OK, I knew about the stairs and I eventually made it to the top. I still would prefer an elevator. We walk through the door, one more small flight of stairs and we are at the B&B. Right then and there we knew we made a great choice.
There is a great roof top terrace with lounge chairs to enjoy the sun and a covered area where there is a cushy love seat and oversized ottoman where you can sit and watch the big screen flat panel TV. Our room was a large non-smoking room with a private bath, beautiful furnishings and a flat panel TV. The bathroom had a great shower large enough for 2. No ugly white hotel towels here. The room and the bath were very tastefully done. And the best thing is, unlike our hotel room in Vienna, there is air conditioning and wireless internet access. If you have to stay connected and travel with a laptop, no worries. The breakfast room/bar has a stocked refrigerator so if you need something to nibble or to drink its right there for the choosing. Breakfast is served each morning, hot or cold, at anytime you choose. We slept in late typically and we were still able to enjoy a nice breakfast. Albert serves fantastic cooked breakfasts. So we had breakfast on the terrace every morning.
What we liked the best about staying at the Kapital Inn were Scott and Albert. From the time we walked into the place it was as if we were with friends. Most B&B owners could care less about spending time with their guests but Scott and Albert were more than accommodating. We needed to do laundry so Scott did it for us. We wanted to schedule a walking tour of the city, Scott was able to give us the tour. We wanted to stay in for dinner, so Albert arranged our pizza delivery or picked up burgers for us. So as the first lesbians to stay at the Kapital Inn, we highly recommend the Kapital Inn as the place for the girls to stay in Budapest as Scott and Albert will certainly make you feel at home. And, if you are lucky like we were, you'll make two really cool friends. Oh, that should be 3, we can't forget Andy!!
A First Class B&B for the Gay Traveler!!
My partner and I had a fantastic four day stay at the Kapital Inn this past June. We booked several months in advance as part of a multi-city tour of Eastern Europe. Kapital Inn was by far one of our most memorable stops during our travels. The warm and lively owners (Scott and Albert) were outstanding hosts, offering everything from recommendations of places to see and dine, delicious breakfasts and of course turning us onto the new and hot gay bars in the area.
This B&B is a 5-star establishment with a welcoming and meticulously crafted décor that was designed for comfort and an eye for pleasure. The four modern guest rooms are on the upper floors of a 19th century building with soft comfortable furnishings and extra details, including a mix of fine linens, well accessorized furnishings and beautifully wrought paintings by your host Albert. Our deluxe room was tastefully decorated and included a flat panel LCD, private bath with double shower and air conditioning.
Opposite the guest rooms and slightly offset was an impressive outdoor terrace with a 42" plasma TV. The terrace is 100% private and is a great unwinding space after a long day of sightseeing. Evenings were spent relaxing on the large sofa, having cocktails or drinking a nice bottle of Hungarian wine and talking with our hosts who provided an insiders guide on what to do the next day. If you're lucky enough on a calm quiet night you can actually hear the eerie sounds of the steam engine and whistle blowing from the Orient Express arriving into Budapest from other exotic destinations.
The metro is a block away making it easy to get to various points of interest in Budapest -- which in itself is an amazingly beautiful and clean city.
So, if you are looking for a gay B&B in Budapest, the Kapital Inn is a 'must'. Scott and Albert are truly new found friends of ours! They made our stay warm and comfortable and went to great lengths to ensure we were completely satisfied.

First things, first - If you've made your hotel reservations elsewhere for Budapest - cancel them and book at Kapital Inn.
About the place - you feel like you've escaped to a day spa when you walk in their doors. The hosts, Albert and Scott, have taken care of every detail in their B&B and take the same care of their guests. They have put much thought into making their Inn unique.
The location is near a metro and tram stop making getting around very easy. Breakfast every morning was creative and filling - ranging from chocolate French toast, omelets, cereal, and fresh fruit.
Thumbs up to everything! Kapital Inn made our 5 night stay in Budapest much more special than imagined.
Great find in Budapest
We found this B&B by chance through Google. It is recently opened and is a real find. The guest rooms are on the top floor, surrounding a fabulous roof top terrace. The terrace is partially covered, very private and cannot be overlooked. It has a large screen TV, with a big selection of DVD's or loads of international channels. You can have a candle lit dinner on the terrace, with good hungarian food prepared by the host (Albert). I recommend the fruit soup! The room is large, decorated to a high standard and contains also a flat screen TV with DVD. The bathroom is tiled with a shower big enough for 2! The bed is large and comfortable. There is a kitchen area next to the terrace with a "help yourself" fridge with drinks and snacks, fresh fruit daily.
The hosts go out of their way to help you and to make your visit enjoyable. The property is located just off Andrassy Ut, which is a wonderful french style boulevard full of upscale shopping and near the Opera. You can get anywhere in the city on the M1 Subway (less than 2 minutes from the B&B) and trams or buses.
There are a large number of cereals, bread and fruit for breakfast, but we were also offered a cooked breakfast every day we stayed, including omlettes, pancakes and french toasts.
This place was a real discovery and is very good value for money. We enjoyed our stay and the hosts Scott and Albert are charming, friendly and welcoming. It is a very gay friendly atmosphere without some of the drawbacks you can sometimes find when you visit "gay" venues!!
The only note of caution is that it is on the 3rd floor and there is no lift. I am a big man and managed fine, but it could be difficult for people with limited mobility.

Can't say enough good things
I visited the Kapital Inn while on a multi-city tour of Europe. I've stayed many places over the years, and I would put Kapital Inn at the top of the list of places where I would like stay again.
The hosts are great, the location is great, the place is just great.
The owners just recently opened after renovating the top floors of the an older building on the Pest side of Budapest. The top floor, where the guest rooms are, is beautifully done. One of the highlights of the place is a huge terrace with a big screen TV. Every night before going to bed I found myself staring for what seemed like forever at the beauty of the night sky from one of the comfortable lounge chairs. My first night we watched a movie on the terrace which was perfect since I was wiped out from the previous days of travel. The front door is only a 5 minute walk to Octogon metro/tram stop where you can connect to most all of the rest of Budapest.
You wouldn't think the hosts were new to the guesthouse business. They seem like they've done it for years and are a many steps ahead of most gay B&B's.
If you're in Budapest, want a place to call home that kind of feels like home, then give Kapital Inn a try. You won't regret it.
