    Historical Traveler Reviews Leo Panzio Hotel Budapest

    Loved Leo Panzio!!


    We loved Leo Panzio! Very clean, helpful friendly staff, great location! Can't complain about it at all!

    A great budget hotel in a great central location


    Having stayed there twice, I can confirm that some rooms are smaller that others, but the cleanliness and helpful service makes up for this. Not surprisingly, the breakfast room and its variety was small but very adequate.

    While this hotel is right in the center of town above one of the main metro stations, it is also within walking distance of the Danube and many sights. Even though this is on a busy street, the double glazed windows and air conditioned rooms leave you with a quiet night's sleep.

    I can highly recommended this clean, comfortable, basic hotel.

    Great value.

    Comfortable, modern and well located


    The Leo Panzio provided a wonderful refuge from the hot weather. It's not much to look at from the outside, but the room

    was perfect and the price was excellent (89 Euro). The A/C was delightful, the decor was warm and modern, and the beds were probably the most comfortable we slept in during our entire trip. The staff was helpful and after checking out we were able to store our bags there for the day since our train didn't leave until later in the evening. I recommend the Leo Panzio without hesitation!

    Great hotel!


    We stayed at Leo Panzio three nights. We loved the friendly staff, the old elevator, the courtyard and the location. The room was lovely, though small, with a balcony and beautiful view. A double room was only 89 Euro/night, with breakfast and tax, booking through the hotel's e-mail. The rooms are air conditioned and have a tv and mini-bar. We would definitely stay there again!

    Nice hotel and great price/location


    We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel in a great location and high quality rooms. Served continental breakfast which was included. Best hotel on our whole 3 week trip of Europe. The hotel is well signed so it was easy to get in the entrance, but did take some trial and error once we entered the courtyard and took the right elevator. All the comforts of a hotel chain on the inside but in a great location! Definately would stay again.

    Clean and friendly in a good location


    We spent one night here and found it a very good place to stay. We stayed in room 10, which had good views of the city's lovely architecture and toward the Danube. The room was spacious enough for our needs, and the high ceilings create a very nice atmosphere. The bed was extremely comfortable - the best of my whole trip (which included 5 different hotels). The young staff were friendly. The breakfast was adequate. The location is very good.

    Mixed results for me


    My experience of the small hotel Leo Panzio was a mix of good and not so good.

    GOOD: superb location, clean, low price, breakfast acceptable but not hot food, friendly young staff, good old lift.

    BAD: the rooms have very small floor space and mind the step (but the highest ceilings I have ever seen.) You don't have a key to the front door, you have to buzz entrance outside to get in each time. I arrived at 9p.m, no answer for 10 mins. Stood around with my bags. This was probably just bad luck as someone was usually on reception 24 hrs a day. Ask for a room away from reception as the entry phone there being buzzed at all hours can be heard from inside the rooms. Rooms 10,11,12 quietest. 12 is the best. At the low price you get 20 yr olds staying at the hotel who come in at 0200hrs. Also walls between rooms not thick. Rooms poorly lit. On my last day I asked for a wake up call. i didn't get it but had already been woken by other guests so got my flight! Reading the other reviews, perhaps I just had a little bad luck and i am too fussy about noise as am a light sleeper, so over all i give this hotel the thumbs up.

    Small but clean and modern


    This place was great. The small size of the room was definitely outweighed by its convenient location (right over the ferenciek ter subway station), helpful staff who spoke good english, stylish furnishings, and overall cleanliness.

    Friendly Staffs


    Building looks old from the outside. But the metro is directly in front of the building. Very convenient! Once you get inside, everything is modern and clean. The staffs as well as the people of Budapest are very friendly and charming.

    Leo Panzio, Central Pest


    The Leo Panzio is a great choice for travellers looking for a clean, comfortable stay in central Pest at a reasonable price. Situated near the Elizabeth bridge and Pest's main commercial shopping centre, the hotel is in easy reach of the river and the main attractions that Budapest has to offer. To get to places further a field, there is a metro station one minute's walk from the hotel's front door and tram number 2 from across the road runs alongside the length of the Danube.

    Although the hotel looks initially daunting from the outside, situated on the second floor of a gothic apartment block used by businesses and private residents, once inside, the decor is bright and cheerful. The rooms are a good size, they are clean and have good facilities, including colour television, minibar, air-conditioning and ensuit bathrooms with shower and hairdryers.

    The continental breakfast of cereal, bread, meats, cheese, fruit and yoghurt sets you up for the day and the staff are friendly and do all they can to ensure their guests have a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

    ... opened to get in with two of them being dead locks - one on the outer door and one on the inner door. The 3rd one is like the bar dropped in on an old medieval gate although our one slides across. We were told to make sure they were all locked when we left the building which also had secure access on the entrance.

    The apartment is located on a main road at the edge of the Jewish district. After settling in we headed for the old ...

    ... for me, everyone;s like rushing for something all the time, I really want to take to enjoy my time, my own time and feel the world.

    After recharging, I dun know why the hell I decided to walk up the hill and see the Liberty Statue. But I did. I used my last bit of strength to walk up that hill and got to the top. The signs was saying that it would only take 20 mins but I know I took much longer. But it was worth it. That view from the hill ...

    ... and gave us a small history lesson at the same time. I didn't realise that my knowledge in history was so little. In each country they all ask the groups if we know this person or that event. I'm pretty much always shaking my head. We did a bit of both sides of the river and a small walk over a historical bridge. The morning was taken up with this walk so it was time for a milkshake, instead of a proper lunch as it was all we could find. ...

He was a fan of B Munich and the young lad Real Madrid. We spoke of the English, Spanish and German leagues and laughed at mocking Chelsea.

    I admit I didn't sleep much these two nights for whatever reasons but I genuinely wish Mohammed Mohammed and Mohammed a safe walk to finding a new ...

    When I arrived in Budapest, despite my famished state and irritated mind frame, I made it to the apartment I was staying in through airbnb and dropped off my baggage. I immediately headed back out to find food. I had walked past a Burger King and thought if nothing else I ...
