The three-star Papillon Hotel, which sits atop a hilltop square in Buda, provides comfortable accommodations perfect for visitors in search of a leafy retreat from concrete-central Pest. And the prices are downright reasonable to boot.
Thirty rooms are spic and span, all with en suite facilities, television, refrigerator and minibar. Guests can sample sweet treats like candies or pocket-sized bags of salted snacks that are left on pillows or desks before their arrival. Beds are sleek with bright white duvets and painted white headboards and backboards. One apartment is available upon request and offers a spectacular panoramic view from the balcony.
The Papillon is located near Mechwart Park, a 10-minute walk west of Margit Bridge and a short distance from Buda Castle. From the 4 and 6 tram stops, it takes about 10 minutes to reach the hotel on foot. It can be difficult for first-time visitors to find the Papillon, but its off-the-beaten-path location brings with it quiet solitude.
And solitude of Papillon is really just the tip of the iceberg. Outside, guests can take advantage of an on-site beer garden, terrace and pool. Plus, the rooftop terrace offers stunning panoramic views.
Breakfast is included. Air conditioning is available for an additional 10 percent of the room rate.

About the Papillon neighborhood
Budapest's Turkish history is most readily apparent in Rózsadomb ("Rose Hill" in English), in everything from the bath houses that dot the area to Gül Baba's Tomb on the Danube. The riverfront, with its wide streets lined with clothing shops, grocery stores and cafés, provides access to Margit Island via the Margit Bridge, and the steeper sections have a quieter, residential feel.
