“Andrássy Avenue is the most representative road of Budapest. It's connecting Erzsébet tér with City Park.”
“Best location to stay in Budapest is the city central. It's located directly in the historical center of Budapest. Less than 5 minutes walk from famous Vaci street, Andrassy Avenue, The Hungarian National Museum.”

Some reviews about the hotels and the locations:
Le Meridien Budapest: ”This was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The location could not have been better. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest.”
Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace: “We stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel for 4 nights. The location is a few hundred yards from the chain bridge. It does not disappoint in any way.”
Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge: “The famous Chain bridge and a stones throw from the city centre and metro station. Due to this fabulous location we were able to take a stroll during our first evening- from Pest to Buda, and to the basilica. Perfect for night time photographers with heavy tripods etc. Breakfast was very dear at 25 Euros. We tried once, it was very good but alternatives were abundant in the shopping area directly behind the Sofitel. Swimming pool, sauna and spa were excellent as a wind-down from a busy sightseeing day! I would most certainly recommend Sofitel to my family and friends.”
Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest: “I stayed here for a week on business and found the Kempinski to be first class. The buffett breakfast is amazing and one of the best that I've seen. Great location to shopping and the river, all within walking distance. A half hour jog will take you across the bridge to the castle. Would stay here again.”
Bohem Art Hotel: “I loved Bohem Art Hotel. The entire staff is sweet, helpful and charming. I loved the location. It's a quiet neighborhood street in what could be a very noisy area. There is very little foot traffic and even though I was traveling alone I never felt unsafe. I actually was able to walk to everything that I wanted to see and fully appreciated being able to walk along the Danube, to cross the bridge to Buda, shop in the Central Market and stroll on Vaci Utca.”
K+K Hotel Opera: “We stayed at this lovely hotel for 4 nights. It’s in a great location near the Hungarian State Opera House. A metro stop only a few steps away. Many restaurant options and variety in this fantastic neighbourhood. Our stay was wonderful and would highly recommend this hotel!”
