Star rating:
4 star hotel

4

An ideal base for families wanting to explore the Buda Hills.

Hotel Normafa makes the most of Buda’s greenery, and therefore offers something a bit different for those who prefer breathing space around their city base. From the outside, it looks rather like an alpine chalet, with shuttered windows and a steeply sloping roof. However, it is well-equipped with modern facilities and will suit outdoor types very nicely.

Location

The hotel is in the Buda Hills, beside the wooded area called Normafa lejtő, which has some great walking trails and picnicking spots. The Normafa station of the quaint Children’s Railway is only 300 metres away and the chairlift within a mile. Buses 90 and 90A run here from Moszkva tér. You can get to the centre in 20 minutes or so.

Bedrooms

There are 46 double rooms and 16 suites, all of them clean and cheerfully decorated. Those under the eaves have sloping ceilings, but otherwise there’s little of the look of the chalet that characterises the exterior of the hotel. All have in-room safe, tea- and coffee-making facilities and minibar.

Public areas

The public areas are contemporary in style, with clean lines and polished floors. The hotel is regularly refurbished and so everything is in good nick.

Eating and drinking

The Normafa Grill has an excellent reputation, and a wide range of food (including a short children’s menu) at reasonable prices. The Pergola Café has a terrace overlooking the pool, and a bar area.

Leisure facilities

The leisure facilities are perfect for a family break, including a main outdoor pool, a children’s pool, a playground and a fitness centre with sauna and solarium. You can rent bikes too, and there’s a babysitting service.

Service

Good.
