I come to Budapest every year once or, rather, twice. Burg has become my regular \'headquarters\' there for some simple reasons: (a) the small team of personnel is a highly professional, dedicated and sympathetic gang who really make the effort required for you to feel welcome and at home; (b) the hotel is just wonderfully located in the heart of the castle district and in the midst of the most impressing historical-touristic sights of the capital; (c) you pay a very reasonable price for a comfortable hotel with a generous breakfast and rooms providing everything needed for just a lovely weekend of for a productive fortnight spent with work.
Wonderful location! Great views. Comfortable and very helpful staff. Nice breakfast buffet, typical for europe. No elevators, but it was fun not to have them. Highly recommended; half the price of equivalent in Vienna.
The hotel staff was amazing. We lost a wallet, and the staff was extremely helpful, first with looking for the missing wallet and calling various places for us, and then for helping us deal with our sudden lack of cash and credit cards. These people really made our 4 days in Budapest worthwhile. It's also in a great location.
The hot water is sort of iffy. It never got below warm, but there were times when it wasn't hot.
This was my first visit to Hungary, and I chose the Burg hotel based on location and affordability. The cab driver from the airport remarked that I had chosen " a very good hotel, " and I was not dissapointed. The Burg Hotel is located in the castle Hill section on the Buda side. Withing walking distance to Buda Castle, other major sights, shopping, and restaurants. I found a charming bakery a block away down an alley, there was a wine tasting on the corner, and the view was outstanding. The room was clean, had a cranking AC, and since I was traveling with my father, we appreciated the suite room, which was two seperate bedrooms, each with climate control and a seperate TV. Do not except a major high tech flat screen TV, but as I was sightseeing, that did not bother me. I had a little trouble with the key and lock as I really had to keep turning the lock in order to get the door open. In addition, I would not recommend this hotel to disabled visitors as there are no elevators, and the tub area required a big step to get into. Lastly, the free breakfast was filling and varied, unlike another place that I stayed at in Hungary. All in all I would stay here again.
