Our 3 Top Picks for Hotels Near Budapest Airport
Our favorite Budapest airport hotels include:
- The 3-star ibis Styles Budapest airport
- The 4-star Airport Hotel Budapest
- The 4-star Airport Hotel Stacio.
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.
