The country's oldest hotel in the Castle District, Pest- Buda opened its doors firts in 1696. A stylish boutique hotel with a typical Hungarian restaurant, that is situated in the historical site of Budapest, really close to downtown- in one of the most beautiful part of the Castle District.
The history of Pest-Buda goes back until 1696, when it opened its doors in the Castle District. But we should dig deeper in the history ... Nöpauer Máté, master builder- quite exactly a church builder artisan at the time, whose name is linked to the ownership of the building of 3 Street Fortuna, from what we know, the Pest-Buda Hotel&Bisztró belonged to the master builder of St Anna Church and St Flórián Chapel.
This 2 storey, medieval baroque building, home ot a hotel and bistro, was renovated into what we see today in the 19th century- it was already operated as an inn to its visitors. As it was normal at the time, under the 3 guestrooms on each floor, there was a pub, later under the supervision of Waggenhoffer. The ownership of the inn back then, hotel today in the Castle District went from Waggenhoffer to Scmögler Ferenc, later a family of acrobates was head of operation until the nationalization when it recieved its current name, Pest-Buda.
The Pest-Buda Hotel in the heart of the Castle District, situated in the calm Street Fortuna, only a couple of steps away from the spectacular sight of the city, Mathias Church.

After the takeover of the builing in the Castle District, the Zsidai family rekindled the old Pest-Buda. Through attentive planning, an intimate, family atmosphere in the building was created. Its appearence changed, but with sticking to the traditions, the Hungarian Kitchen stayed: the dishes served here offer a taste of the classical Hungarian Cuisine to the Hotel's guests and other visitors, in a new vision.
Other than our hotel and restaurant, with the spectacular view over the Mathias Church, from mid-april to mid-october, a warm friendly terrace is open to its guests, completing the balance of our hotel in the Buda Castle.
The result of the interior design is linked to the interior designer, Somlai Tibor who made a deep research over the profile of the venue. This is how Pest-Buda turned out to be a cool, loose, classical bistro and a rustic, luxurious boutique hotel in the Buda Castle District. Ipacs Géza graphic designer, who is know from his famous wine label designs, created the main concept and the magical graphic design for us.
The rooms' walls are decorated with Hungarian contemporary artworks, rustic oak tree walls, and oak tree flooring made by local artisans. In the hotel rooms, local limestone was used to build the handmade Hans Grohe-type tropical shower, which our dear guests appreciated from the very beginning in our hotel in the Castle District.
Obviously the nice environment is the least we are offering, since we aim to serve our guests needs the best way possible.
