The charming three-star Hotel Sissi, located just a few blocks from the Danube and about a 20-minute stroll from city center, offers a few extra touches uncommon among hotels in its price range. Along the way, it maintains its dedication to Budapest's favorite 19th-century princess without getting too frilly.
Thanks to inspiration found within the lifespan of Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie (a.k.a. Sissi), the hotel features a few old-fashioned touches. Downstairs, the Sissi balances a romantic impulse with sleek sophistication. In the entry, we encountered a cabinet displaying St. Louis colored crystal glasses above a shoe shine machine. Dansk collector plates are sold in the lobby and little framed etchings of women in hoop skirts hang on the walls.
The one and only "Sissi" room is booked for romantic stays and is inspired by the Victorian era, with a four-poster bed, lacy pillow shams, and candlelight sconces. Surprisingly, the other 44 rooms at the hotel are 1960s modern, featuring yellow and blue floral print bed covers, basic wood furnishings, and a funky blue wall trim. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, satellite television, minibar, telephone and free Wi-Fi.
Rooms facing the street are quite peaceful, as are all double rooms facing the back garden. The hotel's terrace offers an inviting retreat just a few blocks from bustling Pest.
Note: The Hotel Sissi shares a backyard with the Corvin Hotel next door.

About the Hotel Sissi neighborhood
Formerly Budapest's seedy Red Light District, Józsefváros has reinvented itself in recent years. It's now a fun, eccentric 'hood, home to world music stores, gothic clothing shops, boho cafés and pubs, and the grand neo-classical Hungarian National Museum. Nearby Ferencváros sports its very own savvy student scene.
