The Danube Guesthouse is set in a classicly dated building with ornate entrance and quaint stairwell and lift inside. Okay it needs a lick of paint but we just felt that building oozed charm and as Zoltan (our excelent host)... More

Impeccably clean and well-located guesthouse, The entry feels like walking into the early 19th century (except for the lift). The bedrooms are very modern with great mattresses. Zolton and Bob are very helpful. Stunning historic synagogue to explore in the same block,

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.

“Our room faced the courtyard, and it was quiet. The window gave us enough air as we were there in April. There was no airconditioning.”

“Rooms with a courtyard view are quieter. We had room 2 which was a really nice size as well.”

“We had a courtyard facing room and I believe that would cut down on air noise you might here from the street.”
