The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
One of the highest places in Budapest includes Buda Castle, home to the Hungarian National Gallery and Budapest History Museum. The turrets and terraces of Fisherman’s Bastion offer amazing and memorable views over the Danube. It is quite close to Mathias Church.
We found this on a late evening stroll by accident. Very pleasant surprise with 5 floors of very different art, sculptures etc. We were very close to closing time but managed to have a glimpse of the variety and quality of the works and even managed to purchase an 18th century icon. Wish we had more time!
I do highly recommend visiting Matthias Church, a church at one of Budapest highest locations - its exterior and interior architecture is amazing. The coloured tile roofs provide a combinations of warm lights and shadows and colours with orange, brown, golden hewed frescos reaching from floor to ceiling, beautiful stain glass windows, far reaching arches, century old wooden pews and...
"Remarkably preserved Hospital and Nuclear Bunker"
reviewed 2 days ago by martinphobbs
An interesting mixture of a preserved 1940s-1960s hospital built in a set of caves in castle hill; and a nuclear bunker added in the 1960s. You get a mixture of a history lesson about medicine during the period, the history of conflict in Budapest, and the perils of nuclear war. The tour takes an hour and is packed with interesting...

I visited Budapest on a school trip from England, my friends and I were exploring and found this really nice and cute restaurant. The food was really good, the prices were decent and we received the best service from a waiter called Leslie.
Stumbled upon this little stand at the Citadel and was pleasantly surprised to find their chimney cakes were vegan. I went for a cinnamon chimney cake, which was still hot when served and it was absolutely delicious.
Really nice hotel, very clean, cosy, great food and cocktails at the bistro! Also, the area is excellent for those visiting Budapest for the first time, I think. Would totally recommend and will possibly return myself soon enough!
Great panorama view from our room. Nice breakfast and great coffee. Kind staff. Easy to get around city from the hotel. The cleaning was very good. I’m coming back this summer again. Looking forward already.
"One of the most beautiful, warm and welcoming places to stay"
reviewed 1 week ago by helenalapetite
I loved Baltazar. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed warmly. The service was great throughout our stay, and we had a beautiful room. Breakfast was just as good. We really felt welcome and comfortable, and were looking forward to coming back to the hotel every night.
Baltazar is located in one of the most amazing spots in Budapest...
My second trip to the city, this time on work, stayed overnight and loved the hotel. Great setting, looks historical but very modern from the inside. Good rooms. Used limited service but was 1st grade. The executive lounge is good, staff very helpful and courteous. Breakfast room also had great views and had a big spread.
This is an excellent boutique hotel in the heart of the historic Buda area. We stayed three nights and its location made it easy to see all the sites despite the cold. It's a short walk to the Buda Castle, Matthias Church and the Fisherman's Bastion, and the national history museum and art gallery, all of which are worth seeing....
