Budapest is a vibrant city and the ideal destination for anyone interested in history, beautiful architecture, and nightlife! But where to stay in Budapest?

I visited the city a couple of times and I absolutely love it! I can confidently say that Belváros – Lipótváros (District V) is the best place to stay in Budapest. It’s the ‘downtown’ part of Budapest with plenty to offer to both first-timers and returning visitors. 

Read the post to learn about 8 areas that would fit everyone’s preferences and budgets. You’ll also find the best hotels in each area.

I went through hundreds of hotels and included only the best-rated ones here. All accommodation is sorted by price so you can go ahead and choose your ideal accommodation in a matter of a couple of seconds now! 

Keep in mind that Budapest attracts many visitors (more than 4.6 million per year). This means that booking in advance is always a good idea!

Quick Picks for Your Stay…

These are the best hotels in District V, the downtown area of Budapest.

Watch my video, it will give you a visual explanation of all the areas:

Should you stay in Buda or Pest?

Deciding whether you want to stay in Buda or Pest is the first thing to do before booking your accommodation. Even though the 2 halves of the city are well-connected, they have quite a different vibe:

  • Buda is on the West bank of the Danube River and is more residential than Pest. It’s calmer and fit for laid-back travelers.
  • Pest is vibrant and always awake. It’s situated along the East bank of the Danube River and features all the major tourist attractions

I personally think Pest is best for most tourists because it’s perfect for sightseeing. 

This Buda vs. Pest map will help you visualize all Budapest zones:

Budapest has 23 districts, so here are my personalized neighborhood recommendations for all types of travelers:

1. Belváros–Lipótváros (District V) – best for first-timers

District V, also known as Belváros – Lipótváros is the best spot if you’re visiting Budapest for the first time or have limited time in the city. Belváros is a district in Pest, and it actually means ‘downtown,’ so it’s close to everything that you’ll want to visit!

Some of the main tourist attractions you’ll find in downtown Budapest include the Hungarian Parliament Building, St. Stephen’s Basilica, the famous Chain Bridge, and the Shoes on the Danube Bank memorial.

If you’re staying in this neighborhood during December, you have to visit the Budapest Advent and Christmas Fair at Vörösmarty Square (see the best Christmas Markets in Europe here).

2. Budavár (District I) – best for a luxury stay

District I is centrally located on the Buda side and is home to some of the city’s most remarkable attractions. I recommend you start at Buda Castle, then move on to the Fisherman’s Bastion and Matthias Church

There are plenty of magnificent sights on Castle Hill, but although the walkup is definitely worth it, it can be a little tiresome. If you don’t feel like walking, hop on a river cruise and admire the landmarks from afar while sipping on wine. 

Art lovers will find plenty to visit in the Castle District, and the Hungarian National Gallery is a must! If you’re into unique museums, you’ll surely enjoy the Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum.

Considering all the attractions that are here, you should expect steeper prices at restaurants and accommodations, but it’s well worth what you’ll get.

3. Rózsadomb (District II) – best area for families

If you go a bit North from the Castle District, you’ll arrive in Budapest’s District II – Rózsadomb. 

The area is perfect for a family stroll along the beautiful streets or relaxing at the baths in the area, such as Lukács Thermal Bath and Veli Bej

For food, one of the best things you can do is visit the Fény Street Market Hall and try some of the local food.

Margit tér Park is an excellent place to spend a day with a family, but for an even better adventure, take the kids out to the Children’s Railway, where the little ones can assume the role of training guards and ticket masters. 

District II may not be the “epicenter” of tourist spots in Budapest, but it’s close to the center of the city, and you won’t miss out on anything! Plus, there are some great accommodation options.

4. Terézváros (District VI) – best area for budget travelers

District VI, also called Terézváros, is located on the Pest side of Budapest and is an excellent choice for budget travelers. It is 20 min walking to 15 mins by public transportation from the Parliament depending on where you stay exactly. 

Andrássy Avenue is the highlight of Terézváros; this is a 2.3-km (1.4-mile) street that leads up to the famous Heroes Square. The avenue has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site so you should definitely take the time to walk the length of it!

If you’re staying in the area, you have to spend some time at the Szechenyi Baths which is just around the corner from there. Szechenyi is one of the oldest and most famous thermal baths in Budapest with 18 pools, saunas, steam rooms and more! I’ve been there and would ove to come back again!

The Szechenyi Baths host summer night spa parties in almost every month of the year!

History buffs can learn a lot at the House of Terror Museum, but I have to warn you – it’s creepy!

In terms of restaurants, I think The MAGIC Budapest deserves a special shout-out. This Harry Potter-themed restaurant is extremely popular, so be sure to make a reservation!

Erzsébetváros is also known as the historic Jewish District of Budapest. It’s the best spot for tourists interested in the city’s vibrant nightlife and a great location for a stag do! 

The Jewish Quarter is one of the smallest Budapest neighborhoods, but it’s also the most populated part of the city!

The main attraction in the area is the biggest synagogue in Europe and the 2nd biggest in the world – the Dohány Street Synagogue.

The New York Palace is a popular tourist destination, mainly because of the famous New York Café, dubbed ‘the most beautiful café in the world’! You can make dinner reservations, but if you want to stop for coffee during the day, get ready to wait in line!

You’ll find TONS of good bars and local restaurants in the Jewish District, and, of course, the famous ruin bars. Szimpla Kert is the first bar of this kind, so it’s a must-visit.

6. Józsefváros (District VIII) – coolest part of Budapest

If you’re looking for a cool and artistic district, Józsefváros is the place to be. This district is called ‘Palace District’ due to the large number of palaces in the area, with Gráf Festetics Palace being the most notable one.

To feel the true artistic spirit of the place, pay a visit to the first Hungarian artists’ colony on Százados Road, where many famous artists once lived and worked. 

Highlights of the neighborhood include the Hungarian National Museum and Natural History Museum. For shopping, head to the Corvin Plaza Shopping Mall (map) or explore one of the many shops and boutiques lining the streets. 

I advise you to stay as close to the center of the neighborhood as possible, as that’s the best tourist area.

Ferencváros, the 9th district of Budapest, is a diverse and versatile area in the South of Budapest. 

You have to check out the Central Market Hall, where you can find anything you want, from traditional food stalls serving lángos and goulash to vendors selling fresh produce and spices. And of course, you can get plenty of souvenirs!

It’s home to the National Theater and the Palace of Arts (Müpa Budapest), making it a cultural hotspot. Other notable mentions are Zwack Unicum Museum and Ludwig Museum

The area also features the bustling Ráday Street, lined with restaurants and cafes, and is known for its green spaces like Nehru Park.

The food options in Ferencváros stretch much farther than the Market Hall; the Ukrainian Courtyard serves top-notch Ukrainian dishes, Hoppácska has some of the best sandwiches in the city, and Palacsinta Palota is renowned for its pancakes!

8. Angyalföld (District XIII) – for the best green spaces

Although located on the Pest side of the city, Angyalföld is a quiet neighborhood, great for laid-back travelers looking for green spaces. 

The Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden is the best place to start exploring the area, and you’ll also find tons of great restaurants, cafés, and charming bookshops in Angyalföld. 

TIP: if you’re in Budapest during the Sziget Festival, which takes place in August on Óbuda Island, Angyalföld is your best bet for accommodation – the rest of the city will be hectic!

I also recommend visiting Margaret Island (Margit Sziget), a gorgeous island park perfect for a relaxing day outdoors.

NOTE: if you decide to make District XIII your base, please know that you won’t be within walking distance of the city center, so you’ll have to rely on public transport (~30 min to the center), tram and bus being one of your best bets.
