Hotel Charles, Budapest
Old World Ambiance, Contemporary Convenience
The Charles had, to me, an old-world feel to it: the large keys (not keycards), to be left at the front desk; the formality and cordiality of desk and bell staff; lobby and dining area decor. Guest rooms were roomy, comfortable, and well-equipped; the kitchen area would have facilitated an extended stay. Having come from a smaller, pricier, "modern" hotel, I was quite favorably impressed by the inherent value offered by Hotel Charles. The breakfast spread, included in my room rate, helped the day start well. I enjoyed dinner in the restaurant one night — duck entrée, with creme brûlée dessert — and recommend that if one wants to eat in. The hotel is conveniently on a bus line — 9 stops from the train station, 2 from the Rutas baths, with just about all of Budapest accessible through bus, tram, and subway connections. If I return to Budapest, I'd definitely stay at Hotel Charles.

Great place on Buda side
I have to say, this place has good reviews for a reason. I paid 45 USD and I can tell you, you're not going to get a better value in the city. Restaurant was reasonably priced and extremely nice for a 3-star hotel. Bed was comfortable and while the room was a bit outdated, let's be honest, you're not staying at the Ritz-Carlton. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Good value.
I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room: complete with large living area, kitchenette and bathroom. However, not all rooms have A/C: if you go in the summer, make sure you request one that does. During our stay the temperature was cool and the A/C was not necessary.
