Historical Traveler Reviews Boutique Hotel Victoria Budapest
Fantastic - a little gem
You don't go to the Victoria for its decor, nor do you choose it for it's luxury. You choose it because of it's stunning, jaw dropping views, and it's central location. Every room has a view over the Danube from Buda over to Pest, and within a few minutes walk you can be at the top of Castle Hill, over the river in Pest, or slightly further afield to Margaret Island.
We'd requested a balcony room, and were lucky enough to get one. It meant we had to get the lift to the 8th floor, then a walk up a flight of steps to the 9th, but I will never, ever forget my first view of Pest as we stepped out onto the balcony. Utterly magical.
The room was clean, the staff incredibly helpful with excellent English, and the breakfasts were enormous with plenty of choice. We didn't try the Belgian Bar next door which we'd heard good things about, but did eat at Carne Des Halles a few doors down Bem Rakpart towards Margaret Island and would recommend them too.
It's a 4 star, but with a view better than any of the 5 stars. Put it this way, it's only a few doors down from the Art 'Otel and you're guaranteed a river view. Would not only recommend I would implore you to consider the Victoria. We're going back in a few months - what more can you ask for?
A very Nice Hotel, with excellent views of the Parliament Building and chain bridge.
The receptionist was the most helpful of any hotels I have stayed and and very knowledgable.
The only downside was the connecting doors between rooms, the people in the adjacent room had a tendancy to come in at 3.00am and switch on the tv at a very load level. If you are a light sleeper perhaps this isn't the hotel for you but otherwise excellent.
Great stay at the Victoria
We stayed at the Hotel Victoria for one week this past September (2004). The hotel and staff were both wonderful. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff very helpful a the breakfasts hearty. You cannot beat the location for all of the Budapest sites. The view from the rooms is incredible. I highly recommend this hotel.
Great hotel, lovely rooms with views, as much breakfast as you can eat. Friendy staff.
Would recommend the Belguim bar next door for mussles & chips and lots of good beers. Cafe Kor accross in Pest was fantastic and would highly recommend.
A beautifully furnished and comfortable small hotel on the river right below Castle Hill. Try for a room above the 3rd floor for spectacular views of both Parliament to your left and the Chain Bridge to your right.
Service was very pleasant and attentive. We were there for two nights in July 2004 and recommend it highly. One night we parked our car in the hotel's 3 car garage and the other night the desk clerk insisted we park in front of the hotel in sight of the desk. A Metro stop is 2 blocks away. Enjoyed a great dinner at Kacsa Vendeglo a few blocks from the hotel.
After doing an extensive web search for a place to stay in Budapest in July 2004, we choose the Hotel Victoria. What a funtunate choice this turned out to be!!! It has a fantantic location on the Buda side and is only a short distance on the street cars to get over to the Pest side. As everyone else has mentioned, there is a wonderful view of the Danube and the Parliament Buildings. The personnel on the front desk were more than helpful and friendly and personable. There are two rooms on the top floor with balconies. We had one of these rooms and it was great. Try to get one if you like to sit on the balcony - they even have a nice table and 2 chairs! Almost forgot, the breakfasts are quite ample and delicious and served in a lovely sunny room. My advice, stay there, you will love it along with the beautiful city of Budapest.
Great little hotel
This hotel turned out to be a good deal for us. As advertised, all rooms have views of the Danube, including the Parliament and the Chain Bridge. Located on the Buda side of the river, it's an easy walk across the Chain Bridge to Pest. A plus for this hotel is that it is actually air-conditioned, which can be hard to find in Europe. There are only three rooms on each floor; rooms ending in the number 3 are larger than rooms ending in the number 2. The breakfast included with the room provided a decent array of breads, meats, cereals, along with eggs made to order. The hotel staff speaks good English and were quite helpful with arrangements we needed to make. We'd recommend this hotel to other Budapest visitors.
Good value for location and service
The Hotel Victoria has a great location right on the Danube looking towards Parliament House and the Chain Bridge. It is very convenient for crossing the Bridge to Pest and for the funicular to the Castle. The rooms have great views and are spacious and comfortable. However if you are non-smoking ensure you request a non-smoking room. The staff are very helpful and speak excellent English.
Spectacular Danube/Pest Views
Hotel Victoria is a true gem on the Buda side of the Danube. The view of the river, Pest, Parliament, the Chain Bridge -- all spectatular! The hotel is about a 7 minute walk from the subway/train station and right on the tram line. Although there are busy roads between the Victoria and the Danube, there isn't much noise. My room was clean, quiet and had a balcony. Breakfast was tasty although service was a bit slow (not unusual in Budapest). The front desk staff was helpful with tourist hints and directions. Compared to the rates being charged by the big hotels in Budapest, this little gem is well worth a look (I pity those staying at the new Four Seasons -- Hotel Victoria has a much better view from all rooms!!)
Perfect location, charming and memorable
This hotel is a good value and we found it lovely. We loved being right on the water and the views across the Danube were wonderful. We like to walk and it was easy to go up the hill to the old town, and over those lovely bridges to the new town. I jog and it was great jogging along the road by the Danube. Our room had good sunlight and was comfortable and spacious. And this hotel is very close to a great beer hall and a very modern lovely expensive hotel with a nice bar - so we could enjoy that hotel's bar and be back at our hotel in 5 minutes. I don't want to oversell this hotel - it's modest, modern and small, acceptable but not amazing breakfast and (in fall 2001 which is when we went) had one of those old-fashioned wall blow dryers that looks like a vacuum cleaner hose - but we loved staying here! We didn't have a problem with any noise and I tend to be sensitive to that. We'd stay here again and look forward to the time when we can!

Travel Blogs from Budapest
After an early breakfast we were driving away from the hotel by 0800 for what the GPS was telling was a 6 1/2 trip to Budapest. Considering that it was only 420 kms I thought that the GPS was full of ****. We were spewing that we didn't get any snow on Christmas Day, just our luck it started about an hour into our trip . Out ******* standing. It …
... normal. When I say everything I just mean the lazy rivers and the underground metros, those trains fly! We relax in the various pools for a few hours before becoming wrinkled beasts and decide it's time to move on and grab some food. Aimee enjoys some traditional Langos for lunch, which is really just deep fried dough with some sour cream and cheese on top, personally I can't see what the fuss is about. We head to a market for some dinner (one paper plate of ...
... it! To say I was ****** is an understatement.
Shirley and Bob were helped by a local speaking man while this exchange was going on and I went with them and finally a got some money but had to show my passport. Found out the next day that the local exchange kiosks located on every corner don't ask for a passport, speak English, are happy to see you and give a ...
... a park in Pest. It's the oldest spa in Budapest, originally opening in 1881. It has had some upgrades in the years since. The waters were delightfully warm and the air was pretty chilly. We were glad it wasn't below freezing when we had to dash from one pool to the other and then back to the changing area.
We ate dinner at the hotel and celebrated the Chinese New Year. Lovely four course meal with dragon dancers ...
... empowering. I decided I would go to Budapest the day before I left. I sped up my departure from the lovely, though rather one dimensional, Krakow as a chance encounter with an American led to a conversation where he very enthusiastically raved about Sziget when he was in Budapest this time last year.
Sziget is a European Burning Man. The largest festival in Europe this year it includes big name musical acts spanning ...
