How to Choose Accomodation in Budapest

Booking an accomodation in an unknown country is a difficult choice to make, as you need to consider a number of factors. Are you traveling with kids? Do you need air conditioning? Are you expecting a full restaurant and bar to be located on the premises? Stag Kiss Budapest compiled a list of 10 determiners which will help you find the best place to stay in the Hungarian capital.

Apartment, Hotel or Hostel

There are generally three types of accommodations in Budapest: apartments, hotels and hostels. Depending on your budget, you can get daily maid and concierge service, as well as breakfast options in a hotel; book via Airbnb or HomeAway and live like a local in an apartment, or socialize in a budget-friendly dorm room.


If you’re traveling with children, it is inevitable to find out certain aspects of your accomodation, such as if the building has an elevator, if there are railings or child bars on windows on upper floors and if there’s room for a crib or trundle bed to make sure you and your kids will have a blast.


In order for you to be able to relax after long hours of exploring enchanting sights, it is important that your accomodation is a peaceful oasis without all the disturbing noise. Do your research online, and don’t feel embarrassed to call the hotel asking for a quite room, either.

Age of Building

The age of a building in Budapest can tremendously affect the quality of your stay. Sometimes older buildings have issues with termites, roaches, rats, mice and bed bugs, whereas more modern, recently renovated buildings are less likely to deal with these problems.

Room Size

Rooms in the city centre tend to be quite small, so if you don’t want to be stuck in a mouse hole for days, check photos and reviews of your accomodation.
