The Hungarian capital has more than 200 hotels and more than 2,000 apartments or rooms for short-term rentals.
However, we recommend that you book your accommodation in advance in order to benefit from the best rates, especially during the periods of July (Formula 1 Grand Prix of Budapest), August (Sziget Music Festival) and Christmas when many hotels in Budapest are full.
Budapest has 1.8 million inhabitants on a surface area of 525 km2 (1/3 on Buda, 2/3 on Pest). Buda with its hills is more residential while the heart of the city beats in Pest where most of the hotels in Budapest are located.
