9 Hotels Near Budapest Airport for Every Budget

Unlike airports in many big cities, there isn’t a massive selection of hotels at Budapest airport. In fact, there’s technically only one. The ibis Styles Budapest Airport is just a few steps from the Budapest airport terminal.

While the ibis Styles is the only hotel at the terminal, the town in which the airport is technically located (Vecs) has a wider selection of hotels specializing in the needs of travelers who are arriving late, leaving early, and are likely in need of transportation to and from the airport.

This article compares outlines our top three choices among the various airport hotels in Budapest, compares some of the features, and answers common questions about the different Budapest airport hotel offerings. We also outline a few cheap airport hotels in Budapest and compare which hotels offer an airport shuttle (and which will require a taxi or transit).

Our 3 Top Picks for Hotels Near Budapest Airport

Our favorite Budapest airport hotels include:

All three of these properties tend to compete on price, coming in around the US $100 per night range when we checked.

Given prices that are quite similar, it’s really a matter of weighing up the location vs. amenities.

In terms of location, the ibis is the hands-down winner, as it’s only a few steps from the terminal.

When it comes to amenities, however, the other two hotels have a leg up. The Airport Hotel Budapest and Airport Hotel Stacio have wellness facilities, whereas the ibis does not. Further, the Airport Hotel Budapest has free parking, whereas the others offer paid parking.

If I were arriving late or departing early, I’d personally choose the ibis. That said, we’ve outlined the features of our top 3 picks below.
