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.
Dream Budapest experience
"We enjoyed our stay of 7 nights at the beautiful Victoria Hotel. The view from our room was exceptional, could not get enough of it with the changing lights, day, dawn, sunset, night and the magical full moon nights with the lighted Parliament Building and Chain Bridge, unforgetabble! The staff was very helpful and great service and we enjoyed the breakfast very much as well as the afternoon tea in the gorgeous White Music room. I will definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and family. Mahalo nui loa!"
Couldn't be faulted
"We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay here. A small very friendly hotel ideally situated on the banks of the danube. All rooms face the river and the views are just captivating. Breakfast was well presented and the ever smiling Silke made us feel right at home. Our standard room was huge and nicely appointed with tea and coffee making facilities and mini bar much appreciated. Thanks to all the staff for making our trip very enjoyable."
A legjobb szálloda
"A Boutique Hotel Victoria a legjobb szálloda. Kilátás, szolgáltatás, lotion és reggeli... minden remek. A széles ablakokon éjjel-nappal láthatja a változó parlamenti házakat. Nagyon ajánljuk a Boutique Hotel Victoria szállodát."
Very nice location, very friendly staff
"The river view is amazing. The room was very quiet.
Furniture very beautiful, with hot water maker tea and coffee. Nice minibar. The breakfast is amazing, they do fresh eggs. We enjoyed our stay very much, would book this hotel also next time."
"Everything was great! The people working there were lovely and helpful, the breakfast was a typical continental breakfast but really nice and decent for the price. The room was amazing with an even more amazing view and the location is just perfect. Will recommend to anyone and I would definitely visit again!!!!"
"Excellent hotel, prime location"
"We enjoyed our stay a lot. Boutique hotel with personal service on prime location - there is not much one can wish. Definitely one of best choices when you are in Budapest, great value for the money spent."
"Make our trip memorable!"
"Budapest is a beautiful city. We were so grateful that we chose the right hotel within our budget. We were a group of 4 with 2 bedrooms. Both rooms got excellent Danube and the Parliament view even on 2nd floor. All the staffs from reception to breakfast room were friendly and helpful. It really makes our trip even better and unforgettable."
"Wonderful Hotel in Budapest"
"This hotel is in a great location in Buda; right on the Danube with beautiful views of parliament and the Chain Bridge. It is located within a 10 minute walk of the nearest metro and the tram stops virtually out front. Our room was spacious and the bed was big and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic and you could even have eggs to order. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. We required advice re: our arrival by train and getting there and Eva (receptionist) replied quickly and was so helpful. I would definitely recommend."
"Clean, beautiful view, execllent service"
"Room was very cleanBreakfast was deliciousAnd the staff was very nice and helpful.If you travel to budapest I recommendTo book there, very close to the city center , they have a taxi service just ask from the receptionist !"
"A really nice hotel. Was recommend by someone we knew. And we would recommend to other people. Staff very friendly hotel was clean beds where very comfortable. We also had a great view from our room.And was a good location."
"A good choice"
"If you need to spend 2-4 days in Budapest and need all the main sights "at hand", Victoria budget, where we stayed, is a very good option. The budget part of the hotel is located in a residential building behind the Boutique hotel. Access to the rooms is restricted - you'll have to use electronic card to get there from either Fo street or from the main part of the hotel. Our room was comfortable and had all you could expect from a 3* hotel. It, though, faced the busy Fo street which at times was noisy.The greatest value is the location - funicular to the castle mountain and the chain bridge are 5 minutes walk away, subway station 5 minutes away, Rudas baths 15-20 minutes by walk or 5 minutes by tram, plenty of bars and restaurants within a mile radius."
"Good hotel. Excellent location."
"The hotel is in perfect location with wonderful views. Good room, good size, confortable bed. The street is a bit noisy (tramway, cars) and the windows are not isolating completely the room. This is an important improvement to he done"
"Charming hotel by Danube with view of Parliament and Chain Bridge"
"Loved this hotel! Beautiful views. Staff at reception, bar and breakfast were so nice. We were on the top floor, 9, and even had a small balcony. Everything was wonderful. Small but perfect! They had free afternoon tea and happy hour deals."
"Perfect location, perfect stay"
"You really couldn't ask for a better place to stay when visiting Budapest. Our room was spacious, hotel staff helpful and friendly, breakfast plentiful and tasty and the location perfect. Recommended."
"Excellent location, next to the Chain Bridge. Sylish and chic hotel. The rooms have fabulous views over the Danube to the Parliament Building. Staff were most helpful. Breakfast was also excellent with cooked breakfast freshly made."
"Hier stimmen die Bewertungen"
"Wegen guter Bewertungen habe ich dieses Hotel gewählt und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Schon die Lage an der Donau gegenüber dem Parlament ist grandios. Die Begrüssung war sehr freundlich und das gemütliche Zimmer bietet alles, was man braucht - vor allem einen tollen Ausblick.
Beim Betreten des Frühstücksraum wird man schon gefragt, welche Eierspeise man will und bekommt diese frisch zubereitet. Auch das Buffet ist ausreichend und gut sortiert. Direkt vor dem Hotel ist die Trambahnhaltestelle und man kommt achnell überall hin. Die Fischerbastei oder die Innenstadt ist in 10 Minuten auch zu Fuss gut erreichbar."
"Overall experience top class"
"Hotel Victoria, the location is perfect on the Buda side within walking distance of the Chain bridge and castle area . The hotel experience was top class from the staff to the decor. The breakfast was excellent and the happy hour in the evening a great surprise such great value . We had a river view which was amazing , the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about places to visit . Overall 10 out of 10 ."
"COZY, HOME AWAY FROM HOME!"
"This was our last stop from our Eurotrip coming from Paris. We really had a pleasant stay here. It was indeed a relaxing stay. Has a good location, nearby restos and walkable tourist spots, esp a walk away to Budapest bridge. Their breakfast offered great continental entrees, everything was just delectable. Overall, thumbs up! We will definitely consider staying here again in case we decide to revisit Budapest area."
"Another Perfect Visit"
"This was my second time at this hotel (the first visit in 2011) and it was just as memorable. Gorgeous view from my room of the Danube and Parliament and an easy walk to the funicular and Chain Bridge. Two good places to eat are within steps from the hotel. The staff is most helpful. Breakfast was very good. If I return to Budapest a third time, it will most certainly be at this hotel."
"We stayed for 5 days and had amazing rooms with fantastic views over looking the Danube with the parliament buildings across the river on one side and the chain bridge on the other. The service and staff were brilliant. The Breakfast was of a high standard too. All in all couldn’t fault it and would highly recommend a stay there and will definitely be returning ourselves."
"Just the views surpass anything you'll see on a postcard!"
"Victoria may be officially designated as a 4-star hotel, but I have no qualms rating my experience there as a 5-star experience for several reasons:
- The rooms are huge, comfortable, spotlessly clean, well-equipped, and offer truly breathtaking views of one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Being located along the Danube on the Buda side, you get postcard views of world-famous sights you don't get to see from hotels on the Pest side. It also affords more peace and quiet at night.
- The staff couldn't be any warmer and more service-oriented. These folks know how to treat you like family. No reasonable request is too big for them to accommodate. Bravo!
- Don't let the complimentary "continental breakfast" tag fool you. They offer so much more than Americans' idea of the term (e.g., eggs cooked any way you want, with some meats available too).
- It is less than a 5-minute walk to the subway station, a transfer location that provides quick access to all points of interest in Budapest. For walkers, it's also within a stone's throw of the magnificent Chain Bridge, giving you easy access to the Pest side.
- To top it all off, Victoria's prices are a huge bargain for what you get. You can go ahead and pay three times as much at a hectic luxury hotel in Pest, but WHY?
Very highly recommended!"
"Séjour avec une amie sur 4 jours ! Ville magnifique et hôtel superbe !!! Le personnel agréable et à l’écoute. Le petit déjeuner au top ! Je reviendrais sans hésiter ! Gros coup de cœur <3 pour la Hongrie"
"Cannot recommend highly enough"
"This is my second stay with my wife there, and my experience there this year was as of the highest quality and service as the last time. The employees are courteous and always smiling, always willing to help and are never dismissive. The breakfast is delicious, and there is nothing negative to say about my stay there. Will most definitely be returning again and again on visits to Budapest. It's position is ideal, and all things are easy to get to from its location. Not to mention the view from our room is stunning."
"Everything just right"
"Very nice and modern hotel with polite staff. Perfect view from rooms looking over the Danube river. Hotel has private parking garage. Breakfast was very good and very nice variety of food considering it is a smaller hotel. You can't hope for better :) Many thanks!"
