Expert reviews

Frommers review:

“When it opened in 2013, this boutique hotel brought a welcome shot of style to the Castle District; it’s a good option for design lovers who like to avoid the chains.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Budapest.

CNN review:

“The 11-room Baltazar, located in the Castle District, is Budapest’s newest boutique hotel. Rooms are all individual, colorful and decorated with vintage furniture and pops of fun touches. Bathrooms have rain showers and feature handcrafted local limestone.”

Telegraph review:

“This small hotel of just 11 rooms is owned by the Zsidai family, who have been leading restaurateurs in the city for more than 30 years. As you’d expect, its restaurant is top drawer, and the hotel has a colour, character and attention to design detail that makes it very special.”

Amazing place

The hotel is absolutely amazing. Staff is very helpful, rooms are exceptional, everything is very comfortable and clean. We are staying in this hotel constantly and it's one of our most favourite in the whole Europe. ⭐️

The style, the comfortable and spacious rooms.

Extremely limited breakfast for the breakfast included. 2 croissants, a juice and a hot drink, which left me breakfast-less since I do not eat croissants. Unless you pay for something else of course.

Vibrant, perfect hotel in a quieter area

Perfect stay. Loved the location in the quieter area up on Buda Castle. Comfy beds, spacious rooms, nice decor, good aircon and all the facilities you need. Friendly staff.

Some might find it quite cut off and not very accessible (up a hill), but others - like us - might really value this. There are buses up though. No real grocery shops around. Restaurant was okay but pricey - roasted aubergine was lovely though.

Great Boutique Hotel but needs a better bed

The location is a historic neighborhood so it's beautiful. The staff is very friendly. Room is big. Overall beautiful interiors.

Main issue was the uncomfortable Mattress and bedding. We stayed for 3 nights but they didn't renew room coffee pods.

Great choice for a hotel

An absolutely wonderful hotel, will be sure to stay again when in Budapest. The building, the area, the team - everything is spot on.

Absolutely loved every single thing about this hotel.

I’d go back.

Gorgeous boutique hotel. Great restaurant and bar.

I liked everything. No facilities like a gym or a pool. But it was funky and fun.

THE best place to stay in Buda - location and views of Pest gives best of both sides of the city.

Excellent location in beautiful historic Buda - super quiet and you can hang out on the western wall with the locals, but just a couple blocks from the more touristed area of historic Buda. Super quiet and beautiful. Great bus that goes right into Pest side is literally across the cobblestone street from the hotel. Just get BudaGo app and you're set. We had a beautiful view from our 4th floor room. Also - the Baltazar Bistro is one of The Best restaurants in Buda. They have a grill that does amazing duck legs and steaks and everything we had there the two nights we ate at their restaurant were fabulous. They also recommended Pest Buda restaurant that is related to theirs - incredible for Hungarian specialties. Also the continental breakfast that was included -croissants and cappuccino and preserves in the morning - were perfect. And weather-permitting you can eat outside with a gorgeous view. Inside dining was beautiful as well a choice of two rooms to sit in.

I didn't want to diminish my rating since I loved it so much and the entire staff were truly so exceptionally nice - but the hot water for showers was a bit unreliable on our 4th floor. When I mentioned it they offered to switch the room but we declined so that's on us (Thank you Daniel!)

Highly recommended, comfortable and fancy choice

Very comfortable, silent and beautiful room with lovely scents. Perfecty clean everywhere. Every detail is well designed and made of precious materials. The staff is lovely and very helpful. Bar has great selection, breakfast is more than enough. Location is very good, you can reach everything easily with public transport, bus stop is opposite.

The restaurant offers correct food but the price-value ratio of wine selection is definitely bad.


15 May 2023

Very good

the area and the decor in the room. the shower.

lots of staff hanging around.


13 May 2023

Very good

Incredible location, very quiet place at night.

The Frenchy Breakfast is too repetitive. Information provided about public transportation was a bit confused

Fabulous boutique hotel in a great neighborhood with bar and restaurant on main level

Adorable boutique hotel w restaurant attached

There were no negatives!

By far the best hotel in Buda Castle

The location was great - 5 minutes walk to Fisherman's Bastion, staff was incredible helpful and kind. The beds are super comfortable and we had everything we needed for our stay. Also we we're impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the entire hotel!

The TV didn't had Netflix or Youtube.

Loved the hotel itself, photos really don't do it justice! The food and drinks are great, especially the cocktails and the staff are so helpful and friendly. It is in Buda so a good walk from Pest but it is totally do-able and it wouldn't stop me staying here again!



15 April 2023


Superb, warm hospitality! Fantastic location in the historic' foody' Quarter and very safe to walk about late in the evening to take in the atmosphere. Great brasserie attached to the hotel.

Very little indeed!


14 April 2023

lovely location ; as there is lots to see in buda castle. near transport link : was able to catch bus just outside the h

the hotel was inside the castle area. clean room and friendly staff


26 March 2023

Excellent way to enjoy a short 3 or 4 day City break.

Staff were excellent. Location was perfect. It was quiet at night, so you can actually sleep. Bathroom/Shower etc were of particularly high standard. Restaurant, for dinner, was excellent.

I don't tend to like beds where two mattresses have been put together, with two single duvets. Either have twin beds, or have a proper double/Queen size bed with appropriate-sized duvet.

Great location and very helpful staff


25 February 2023

Wonderful stay in the Buda side

Wonderful location and interior design. The room was really confortable. The host was kind enough to accept our check in about 2hs earlier - really nice. I would go back to Baltazar easily, highly recommend it.

I missed a fully functional restaurant, with more breakfast options, and maybe some drinks service too - this would be awsome after a long day walking around the city.

Personalized hotel room in a quite yet well situated part of Budapest

Small boutique hotel with few rooms, on Buda hill, super quite environment whilst at walking distance from St Mathias church (3min) and many restaurants. If you start the day with a run or a walk, the place has stunning views over Pest, magnificent at sun rise.

Hotel servers are so nice and friendly 😄


15 January 2023

Very good

Decor and comfort was fantastic. Cozy place in decent location for Buda side of the city.

Breakfast available in the boutique hotel was average.


9 January 2023

Very good

Gorgeous hotel - very cool decor! The staff were exceptionally helpful. We were arriving late at night so they sent a detailed email with info about checking in and also surprised us with a bottle of champagne in our room as it was our honeymoon! We loved the Loccitane products in the bathroom too. We really liked the area also - it was nice to be slightly removed from the main tourist area but we could still walk everywhere and take the metro.
