Expert review of Leo Panzio

A cheapish, no-frills choice in a satisfyingly central location.

The primary attraction of the Leo is its position in the middle of things. However, there are other characterful features that float my boat – I’ve a soft spot for places set in residential buildings (it’s on the second floor of a flaking, traditional apartment block with a typical central courtyard), and I particularly like the old-fashioned wooden lift with its sliding door.

Location: 

Location is the hotel's biggest plus. It overlooks the busy Ferenciek tere, and is less than 50 metres from Váci utca. It’s a very convenient base for exploring the city.

Bedrooms: 

The rooms offer a decent enough amount of space and have a certain faded charm, with blue carpets and burgundy coloured furnishings. I was particularly impressed by the size of the shower cubicle (is that a bit sad?). Most rooms face on to Ferenciek tere, with some overlooking the run-down inner courtyard; all are air conditioned, and have TV, minibar, etc.
