Located in the heart of the old inner walls of Pest close to the Danube, the City Hotel Pilvax offers an excellent central location on a pedestrian street. Several blocks away from the popular Váci Street, visitors have easy access to a wide array of shops, restaurants, and tourist sites. The hotel is clean and the staff were very helpful. Unfortunately, there is no lift so older guests may be wary of climbing stairs after a long day walking around the city. The decor is crisp but certainly a little retro appealing to nostalgic visitors who are revisiting the city after being away for a decade or more. The hotel serves a modest breakfast, however I would recommend that visitors take advantage of the central location to walk a few blocks to the JégBüfé around the corner which is a Budapest institution offering fresh pastries and coffee (standing only) or if you would like a more elegant and relaxed breakfast, head to the Gerlóczy on a nearby quiet square which offers and excellent breakfast with outdoor seating during the summer season.

Report
Local from Budapest, Hungary

With double beds that are really two double beds pushed together and furnishings that would not look out of place in an office setting, the City Hotel Pilvax may not be the kind of hotel you’d ever expect to see romanticized in poetry or song. It is however a perfectly acceptable place to lay your head when travelling on a moderate budget. Rooms are quite spacious, almost surprisingly so, and it is also very well located, on a side street just off the busy pedestrian shopping strip that is Vaci utca. And if you fancy a pint of Kilkenny, it’s also right next to an Irish pub. Free wifi in all the rooms helps lift their overall game, as do their regular online specials, which can make a stay here a true bargain.

On the sign above the door, it reads City Panzio Pilvax, but that is a leftover from the old days. Located just off the downtown pedestrian street Vaci, this small hotel offers solid value in an outstanding location. (You are steps away from shopping, entertainment, transportation and the Danube.)

The hotel is freshly redecorated, has only 32 rooms with pleasant sand colors throughout. There is wall-to-wall carpeting in the rooms and the bath has a shower. Although nothing fancy, but everything you need is there at a location that is hard to beat.

There is no elevator in the hotel so be prepared to walk up to the first floor on a lovely curved wooden staircase. Room décor is in soothing neutral colors and there is a sitting area and flat screen TV. Making a reservation ahead of time will get you a better price.
