Bed and Breakfast in Budapest Hungary
BudaBab Bed and Breakfast Central Budapest Hungary B&B Guesthouse Lodgings Accommodations
Hosts: Ryan and Ron
Address: 1072 Budapest, Akacfa u. 18 IV/24, Hungary
Activities/Attractions: Budapest is the political, administrative, economic, scientific, and cultural centre of the country. Budapest is often called as Paris of Middle and Eastern Europe. The river Danube runs through the centre of Budapest, dividing it into two sections: the hills of Buda on the western bank and Pest on the east. The two sides are connected by nine bridges (two for railway traffic), the oldest one being the famous Chain Bridge that opened in 1849 - and this is only one of the amazing historical monuments that have made the Hungarian capital famous all over the world.
Budapest, known as the "Queen of the Danube", is a magnificent city exuding a cultural sophistication that entices and enchants. Gracing both sides of the legendary river with grand historic buildings, regal bridges and graceful tree-lined boulevards, it is the city's elegant beauty and romantic atmosphere that has given Budapest Parisian status among the Eastern European countries.
Budapest offers the visitor the familiarity of European culture with a distinct Hungarian flavour. It is evident in the neo-Gothic Parliament buildings, sidewalk cafes and Magyar cuisine; classical concerts and Hungarian folk music; the cobbled streets of medieval neighbourhoods and shady parks, and everywhere the sounds of an unfamiliar language. Highlights for visitors include a river cruise on the Danube and a thermal bath in one of the Turkish-era bathhouses.
"It’s been a very enjoyable stay here with you guys. Besides the selection of teas and the computer in the kitchen, I very much enjoyed the “style” you gave to my room. It feels very familiar and calming. It’s nice to see you guys watching TV together, to see you reading emails together or making omelets (send me an email and I’ll share some great frittata recipes). After me and my boyfriend finish our adventure in California, if we survive the Republicans, it would be nice to come back to Europe and maybe open a B & B in Prague, inspired by what you created here in Budapest. Ciao!"
"I thank Ron and Ryan for the warm welcoming! The room, the breakfast, everything was just a very nice surprise! Thanks."
"This was my first trip to Budapest and I am very sure it will not be the last. The city captured my heart. When I come back I will be sure to knock on your door, for it was indeed a pleasant place to stay. Thank you so much for your warm welcoming atmosphere and your help."
"Thank you very much for your nice, friendly and warm hospitality and all the little tips. After my Hungarian friends moved into the countryside of Budapest, it’s good to know to have you and such a beautiful and central place here … so I like to say See you guys soon again!”
"I must thank you so much for your great hospitality. I needed to spend a relaxing holiday and I must say that in your lovely apartment you breathe peace and calmness. You gave me much helpful information about Budapest. One more thing: Your respect towards the guests is great and worth mentioning. I’m a quite reserved and shy guy, but you made me feel at ease with you. I’ll recommend your B & B to all the travel agencies with whom I work, sending tourists to Budapest. If you come to Italy you must visit my town Ancona and its neighborhood. I’ll be your special TOUR GUIDE."
"I feel so lucky to have had your B & B recommended, and followed up on it. You have a beautiful B & B and I like your eye for detail and the loving way in which you look after it as well as your guests. Thank you for taking such good care of me, the chats and help, and making me feel at home. I’ve done a lot of traveling over the past 18 months and I can say that you stand out and sure to be recommended to any friends coming to Budapest. Good luck to you and whatever ventures you have in your lives."
"Thank you for your hospitality! We enjoyed very much your B & B and your gastronomic recommendations. Paprika Café is the pearl of Budapest … however, instead of making us any richer, it just makes us fatter! Oh well!!! All the best for the future."
"Matthew and Will stayed in a lovely B & B in Budapest. This being stop #3 on their European adventure, they were weary and ready for a refreshing stop and a relaxing atmosphere. Well, thanks to the hospitality of Ron and Ryan, that is exactly what they received.” Thank you so much for everything. It was outstanding!"
"Thanks for making my first trip to Budapest so easy. You have a comfortable home, and I really enjoyed my stay with you. Thanks for all the tips and info, and the loan of the AC converter. I’ll certainly recommend you to anyone coming to Hungary!"
"Thank you for the nice time which I spent here in your guesthouse. It’s a very central situation you have here. Everything is not too far and it’s really cozy in your home. All the best."
"I think that the B n B is so great it felt like home. Thank you for the tour. Great food! Best wishes."
"Thank you so very much for the wonderful week with you in lovely Budapest. The thermal baths are heavenly - don’t know how I will be doing without them. It has been good catching up with your lives after the years working for the county together. You have a wonderful and interesting life here in Hungary - never a dull day. Ron- thanks for taking me to Mass at beautiful St. Stephen’s Basilica and to the opera to enjoy Rigoletto. You both are very dear to us, and we hope to continue to follow your journey around the world. Thank you both so much for wonderful memories."
"Thank you so much for you hospitality. We had a wonderful time here. Budapest is an adventure and well worth travelling to. Maybe twice or even more often."
"This was a great way to spend our first four nights of our 6 month journey. We appreciated all the tips of where to go and how to get there. Thank you so much for the birthday cake- very sweet of you!"
"We had a great and relaxing time at your place and in Budapest, starting with the tasty breakfast every morning. We especially enjoyed your calmness and hospitality. Thanks for the hints around Budapest. Looking forward for the next time at your place."
"Thanks for being great hosts during our first trip to Budapest. It was grand to have someone point out the sites worth seeing, and of course those not worth seeing, which weren’t that many. When traveling to a foreign country, city or otherwise it’s great to have someone who speaks your language on many different levels. Of course being centrally located in the city was a huge plus as well. Again, thank you. We will be sure to refer friends to stay here."
"Thanks so much for the warm hospitality and great conversation (and coffee!). We had a wonderful stay - was just what we needed: a caring, comfortable place with a wealth of info and insight into getting around Budapest and beyond."
"Hospitality is something I know and you are for sure!! A memorable trip from my Peace Corps stint in Ukraine will be Budapest and you guys. How special you made this. Hope that our paths will cross again. Warm regards."
"Thank you for four nice days in Budapest: hospitality, friendly reception, good talks, etc."

"I really had a great time and wanted to thank you for everything. It was the first time that I had traveled to Europe on my own - and your warmth was much appreciated. Also, I wanted to thank you for being such gracious hosts! I think you went above and beyond in terms of your hospitality, helping me to get oriented, and tips on where to go and what to see! I'm going to let friends know about your bed and breakfast."
"What a wonderful place to find you. I’m so glad we got to spend this time with you. Ron, thanks again for getting us to the baths … that was really special."
"As I write this on the morning of my last full day, I think of how my first trip to Budapest would have been much different and not as enjoyable if I had not stayed with you. I wanted a trip that would let me experience Budapest not as an American tourist but as an American living in the city. Even if I had not stayed with you, your website alone would have prepared me. The location of you flat alone was worthwhile - close to the city center, but far enough away that I did not feel surrounded by tourists. I knew that I wanted a solitary experience, but I also knew I needed some people with whom I felt secure ... you two were exactly that. I have no doubt that if I had stayed in a hotel my Budapest experience would not have been as positive."
"Budapest is an elegant city, much like my home Buenos Aires. My encounters with you and the people here were very friendly and comfortable. Thanks for everything."
"Budapest would not be nearly so “bitchin” were it not for this wonderful, cozy, beautiful place! Thank you so much."
"This is a delightful venue. I enjoyed your friendship and hospitality so very much. Thanks!"
"I must say you are very lucky to live in Budapest as this is a remarkable city, much more beautiful than I had expected in my wildest dreams. And what a great apartment you have! Anyway, thank you very much for everything. It was very pleasant to stay at your flat for a few days."
"I spent a week in Budapest, and in the middle of my 6 weeks trip this was like spending a week n a nice home. Thanks a lot for being the kind and relaxed hosts that you are! What Budapest brought was beautiful architecture, a mix of people I met (from Hong Kong, Singapore, Ireland, Sweden, Spain, Denmark, Serbia … so quite a mix!) and eventually even cash and my luggage! (Ed. Note- Lost luggage took 2 days to catch up with Jacques). If you ever come to Holland, you are more than welcome."
"Had a great time staying with you 2. Very hospitable! I had a decidedly enjoyable time visiting with the “locals”. Thank you for use of the mobile; it was very helpful. See you again!"
"Just wanted to thank you, once again, for having us to your beautiful home."
"Thank you so much for all your warm, welcoming hospitality from the moment we stepped out of the elevator. You made our stay in Budapest memorable and completely enjoyable."
