When searching for a luxury hotel in Budapest keep in mind what you really look for in a 5 star hotel: exceptional wellness and spa facilities ? great comfort, design and service? convenient location? neighborhood? or best panoramic views?

0202-xNewYorkPalaceBudapest.jpg.pagespeed.ic.rEW6H6PGGZWe all expect to get it all in one. The good news is that in Budapest you can actually find some of these hotels.

I have made a list of the Best Budapest Luxury Hotels based on friends’ experiences and travelers reviews. Hopefully it makes it easier for you to pick the hotel that suits the best to your interests.

All Luxury hotels in Budapest are in beautiful and convenient spots of the city, they only differ in that some of them are located on the river bank and have spectacular panoramic views of the Danube, Buda Castle and Chain Bridge, while others are located in the city center so they lack the stunning views, specially at night.

If money is no object undoubtedly stay in one of the best hotels with river view, you won’t regret it.
