Philosophy: the attraction of a small boutique hotel – in contrast to major hotel chains – is that they are able to offer a unique atmosphere, personalized service, direct, personal relationships and experiences.
Set by the foot of the Buda Royal Castle, directly on the Buda side of the Danube Riverbank, our family managed boutique hotel with its 27 panoramic rooms enjoys an elevated location in the heart of Budapest. The hotel is less than a 10 minute walk from Buda Castle district where the Royal Palace, St Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion are located. These are some of Budapest's most visited sights and also UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The historical Chain Bridge – only 250 metres from the hotel– takes travellers to the Pest-side of the city which includes the central business and shopping districts.
Our 4 star quality hotel offers well-appointed modern guestrooms with free WiFi, A/C, a rich buffet breakfast (try our home-made egg specialities!) as well as a historical concert hall and tearoom. The hotel prides itself on being a home away from home for a weekend break, honeymoon, anniversary, business or cultural trip to Budapest. Hotel Victoria guarantees its guests value-for-money accommodation, a perfect base from which to explore the city and enjoy the personalized service in this first-class destination.
Another highlight of our charming, relaxing hotel is the most incredible view that you can imagine of Budapest. As each room is on the riverside and is equipped with floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows, the view of the Danube is fascinating, encompassing Margaret Island as well as the Pest riverbank (a member of the UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Parliament and the famous Danube Bridges. Imagine all this while having breakfast in our breakfast lounge with the sun rising or sitting in your armchair in the guestroom, having a nice glass of wine with the brilliant lights of Budapest's skyline in the background.
Hotel Victoria was originally built at another location of Budapest in 1983, as the first private hotel after World War II. Since at that time the private accommodation sector was not accepted, the state forced the owners to sell the hotel to a state-owned company. Fortunately the company did not want to buy the name: Hotel Victoria. Some years later, the construction of the new Hotel Victoria began and it opened in 1990 in one of the best locations in Budapest, on the riverside of the Danube in the centre of the city with a spectacular view from all of the hotel rooms. The hotel offers all major services for tourists and business people. The primary aim of the owners is to operate Hotel Victoria as the best Boutique hotel in Budapest. We understand that the expression ’Boutique hotel’ is not very well known yet in Budapest, however the location of the hotel and the quality of services provided, will hopefully make it very popular in the near future.

“Fantastic view of the Danube and Parliament”

The hotel is perfectly located in Buda; the staff is very kind and helpful, comfortable rooms, clean and with a great view of the Danube river. Close to one of the main streets in town, full of restaurants, bars and shops. Also a few metres away from the Chain Bridge. Beautiful sights from the front room both during the day and night. Would definitely recommend it!

Friendly staff, clean and immaculate rooms (no traces of other people's hair in the bed). Fantastic river and parliament views (especially during the night). Worth the visit looking forward to staying again.
“Superb River Views”
Reviewed a week ago
I had previously stayed in one of the "big hotels" on the Pest side and we chose this hotel because of the excellent river views of the Chain Bridge and the Parliament building - the 2 top sights in Budapest, especially at night. We opted for the 4* room and, although I didn't see the 3* option I would definitely recommend paying that little extra. Our room was modern, clean and met our needs perfectly for a short city break. Mini bar was well stocked and, by UK standards, sensibly priced.
There are some nice enough bars and restaurants nearby, but most of the action is on the other side of the river which is a very pleasant 10 min walk away. Trams stop right outside and, should you need one, taxis are plentiful and again quite reasonably priced.
Our room was a really good size, with big windows making the most of the wonderful views. We loved buying a bottle of wine locally, chilling it in the room, and then watching the World go by after dinner, sat in the room's comfortable chairs. There is some noise from the trams, but hey this is a central location!
Breakfast was totally acceptable and was in line with what one would expect from a relatively small boutique hotel.
We found the staff helpful - they lent us an adaptor plug and wine glasses, stored our luggage and booked a taxi for us on departure. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for a couple of nights before a river cruise.
The hotel is quite small but it is the very modern style we like and it was very comfortable. The weather was very hot whilst we were there and the air con struggled to keep the room cool, we did ask the staff about it but nothing changed.
Breakfast was adequate but it was pretty limited.
We asked for a taxi when we were leaving but despite four of us all fitting into one taxi when we arrived, they insisted that we should have two on leaving. When the first arrived it was enormous so we all got in and with our cases. However the taxi driver argued with us and insisted two of us go with the other taxi, we refused so he removed our luggage and the two drivers drive off without a word! The hotel were not interested so we walked off and flagged down our own taxi. We were not very impressed with this aspect.
The hotel is located on the Buda side of the river and whilst you have wonderful views from the bedroom, I would stay on the Pest side for our next visit as it is more central.

We loved the Boutique Hotel Victoria in Budapest. First of all, we enjoyed staying on the Buda side of the river. Not only was the hotel located on the rampart street facing the river, providing great views, but there were great restaurants right down the street. The neighborhood was a nice contrast to busier and more touristy Pest where we did most of our sightseeing. The hotel itself met all expectations. The common areas and our room were very nice. We had a picture window view of the river from our room. Bathroom was great. Breakfast very good. We were told the hotel was renovated two years ago which makes sense. From our standpoint the cost was very reasonable also. Public transportation was easy, with a metro stop 4 blocks up the street, and tram stop in front of the hotel.
