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.
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!
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.
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.

... We finally ended up with two metal cots. They have very thin mattresses, so we also agreed to the memory foam pads that Blake had become quite attached to. The pads (named "Mr. Fuzzy" by Blake) cost as much as the cots, but altogether they now have very comfortable beds, that still give us a lot of flexibility for the next time they decide they need a change. Keith and I also rewarded ourselves with a mattress pad that goes all the way across our bed, and a ...
Budapest was sort of unceremoniously tacked onto the other end of the Bratislava trip, mostly because I was in charge of flights and while there were a number of great options to/from London and Bratislava, there was absolutely nothing from Bratislava to Madrid. Luckily less than a 3 hour train journey away and another country/city on my to-see list was Budapest, and it didn't take too much convincing to get Linzi and Chris to agree to this second stop on the agenda. In hindsight the ...
... read poor reviews was the labyrinth under Budapest Castle. I actually really enjoyed the labyrinth. I'll admit that some of it seemed to have disjointed themes, but that didn't mean it wasn't fun. I learned quite a bit about the real Dracula (Vlad the Impaler), who was imprisoned in the labyrinth for a while, although I don't know how much of what I learned was true since the signs posted sometimes conflicted with each other. It was still interesting to imagine him ...
... group of marionettes was completely different in style from the others and beautifully hand crafted. There was a small working marionette theatre in the museum as well and we were the only 2 people walking through this surreal space. Just incredible. While visiting the town we stayed at a camping place nearby. The people running the place were just so kind and friendly. Garden here....compost heap contained by old wooden doors there. Camping here. Path to the river cut ...
