As Budapest's popularity grows among visitors to Europe, its hotels have filled and rates have risen accordingly -- but it's still a bargain when compared to other major European capitals. Rates are often discounted during the winter months, when tourist numbers are down. The cheapest places to stay are rooms in private homes, which you can find via websites such as Airbnb. There are also many inexpensive pensions and budget hotels, though these often are located outside the city center and lack amenities such as air conditioning; ask before booking.
