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.

... to the market areas, Bree and I were both fascinated by the architecture in this wonderful city. It was so much fun just walking the streets a bit and constantly looking up at the amazing buildings.
So already developing a bit of a neck cramp from observing the architecture, we made our way to the main square and decided to stop at a little café with great people watching to grab a late lunch before we explored the market. Big mistake. While the food ...
This morning before we checked out we went walking but made sure we didn't get lost.
Check out times in these hotels is noon not 10am like at home. We checked out of our Hotel and boarded our Viking Long Ship - Alsvin.
After lunch on board we went on a walking tour of the city.
... be a funeral for Gyula Grosics, who was a championship soccer player for Hungary from the late 1940's to the mid 1960's. The bells were ringing non-stop and crowds were pouring out of the church- there were more seats set up in the square outside, along with large screens and speakers to allow for broadcast outside. Dignitaries left by the side door and we saw them whisked away with police escorts. It's interesting what we stumble across just wandering through ...
... Square, and around the area called "Leopold Town". We were following a self-guided tour in my Rick Steves guidebook. At one point we passed the US embassy and you wouldn't believe the security around that place! There are physical barriers preventing cars from getting close without security clearance. And there are tall gates around so people can't get too close either. There are even signs prohibiting photography in the area!
Soon we were all in need of a bathroom break ...
... one of the clubs there are apparently people who are paid to walk around in pajamas telling people to basically "shut up." I guess noise bylaws work a little differently in Budapest. On Friday (Valentines Day) I did a little bit of exploring, but I was feeling rather ill so I actually ended up spending the entire day (and unfortunately, night) in the room sleeping. My comrades experienced a Budapest-style pub crawl including Palinka shots and a 4 ...
