Eco Friendly Hotels Hungary ( 2021): A Selection of Top 3 Green Hotels

An eco hotel, or a green hotel, is an environmentally sustainable hotel or accommodation that has made important environmental improvements to its structure in order to minimize its impact on the natural environment and eco friendly hotels Hungary are considered excellent place to hang out for a couple of nights in Budapest and then beyond in Hungary.

In general, although Hungary lags far behind the best performing EU countries for eco-innovation, there is increasing awareness and improved ‗eco-dynamism’ in Hungarian companies.

At present, the city only has 5m² of green area per capita, significantly less than the EU’s average. To make matters worse, the green areas that Budapest does have are often isolated and patchy, while city parks with old tree populations suffer from under-investment.

 

 1. Irota EcoLodge 3* – Eco Friendly Hotels Hungary

Irota EcoLodge
Irota EcoLodge

Offering tastefully furnished houses, a seasonal outdoor pool and barbecue, Irota EcoLodge is located in Irota, 45 km from Košice. Free WiFi is provided and free private parking is available on site.

Certain rooms have a seating area where you can relax. Certain units feature views of the pool or garden.

On a rural road surrounded by hills and fields, this family-run, carbon-neutral ecolodge is 20 km from the 18th-century L’Huillier-Coburg Palace and 22 km from the caves at Aggletek National Park. Route 27 is 30 km away.

Featuring rustic-chic, retro, or modern decor, all 3 wooden cottages sleep up to 6 guests and include free Wi-Fi, solar power, upcycled furniture, kitchens and private gardens. Children 2 and under stay free.

Complimentary amenities include parking, bike rental and a chemical-free outdoor swimming pool; meals prepared with local food are available for a fee. Some pets are welcome (no charge). Minimum-stay rules may apply.

The brand new Irota EcoLodge premises consist of three spacious, luxurious and well-equipped holiday villas and a shared natural swimming pool (size 6x16m). Although slightly different in detail, the houses basically have the same lay-out and are all adjusted to guests with special needs. Each house (170 m2) has its own style: The Lower House is the rustic, countryside type, the Middle House has a retro, 1960s feel, while the Upper House has a sleek and modern design.
On the outside terrace, you will find all necessary furniture to enjoy the beautiful sunny days. From here, you have easy access to the natural swimming pool which is picturesquely located amidst the reeds. From the Lower House you have access to the fishing pond. The houses are detached, which guarantees full privacy. However, in case your group decides to rent more than one house, doors in the wooden fences in between the properties make it easy to move from one house to the other. All houses are provided with parking space for two vehicles.
Mobile phone coverage in Irota is limited, but in each house you have a telephone land line as well as free WiFi at your disposal. The natural beauty of the Cserehát region, of which Irota is called the gateway, is located on the south side of the Hungarian-Slovak border and is defined by the Sajó, Bódva and Hernád rivers. Compared with the rougher, Slovak side of the area the Cserehát is undulating and covered with forest. It also has a thriving wildlife.
Visitors will see a lot of foxes and deer. The usually shy wild boars are less visible, but also present in large numbers. The hills are 250 to 300 meters high on average. The area is popular with hikers, bikers, fishermen and hunters, while the large variety of bird species makes the Cserehát an ornithological destination par excellence. A nature reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Aggtelek National Park is only a 40 minutes drive away.

What a fantastic property to stay at. Located in extremely rural Northern Hungary, there are 3 properties (built and running self sustainably). Each the same size but each with a unique decor (modern, retro and Hungarian). Everything on the property was spotless, well thought out and positioned. We rented all three houses with three families and it worked out perfectly. Hosts were very easy to communicate with prior to our stay as well as checking in and during our visit. The surrounding countryside is stunningly gorgeous. It was late October so we were unable to use the pool but plan to re-visit when it is warmer so we can enjoy that as well.

Perfect place for families or groups. Bring all the food and drink for your stay as the nearest stores are quite far – and to be honest once you get there you will not want to leave the property unless it is to explore the forests and farmlands surrounding it.

Calm, silent neighbourhood, perfect place for relaxation. Premium quality with environmentally conscious construction and management. Our hosts were very friendly, mindful and flexible.
The houses are well designed, completely eco-friendly; yet offer all the modern conveniences and comforts. They’re also much larger than one would gather from the online photos. We really appreciated the good internet connection, stunning interior; showers with good water pressure; veranda with comfortable furniture; BBQ facilities; natural pool; grocery basket on order with real Hungarian sausage and wines, the lovely village food from Mrs. Miklos with 4 menu’s to choose from; mountain bikes; all the modern conveniences one would expect from modern upmarket urban accommodation, yet nestled in the quiet tranquility of the Hungarian countryside.
 Irota Ecolodge is the perfect tranquil getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life with all the serenity and tranquility one would expect from the Hungarian countryside, yet with all the amenities of modern accommodation, which makes it all the more amazing when one realizes that the accommodation is completely eco-friendly. What Jeroen and Lennard have achieved offers a new vision for what can be accomplished for country living. Using the latest eco-friendly building techniques and innovations, a tranquil and sustainable yet modern green countryside lifestyle is now possible, the perfect getaway.

The Ibis Budapest City hotel is located in the centre of the business district of Budapest, within easy access to public transport.

The hotel has covered pay parking, and free Wifi Internet access for guests on a business trip. There are restaurants close by.

The hotel is clean, bright and modern inside and the reception staff are friendly and very helpful – there is also a small 24-hour bar in the lobby with comfortable seats and this was a great place to sit and chat and catch up with friends.

My room was quiet and spacious with a very comfy double bed and table-top area thoughtfully provided with a multi-plug cube – there is free WiFi throughout the hotel. The bathroom was spotlessly clean with a great shower – and a hairdryer.

At breakfast time there was a really good range of hot and cold food ranging from porridge to traditional Hungarian. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to friends.

. Tram and metro stops were about two minutes walk away from the hotel. The rooms were large and clean with plenty of storage space, and, importantly, the bed was very comfortable (and was king-size). The bathroom was great, with an efficient shower. I had never stayed in an Ibis Hotel before, and I would now thoroughly recommend the chain to others. What really made the hotel was the friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency of the staff. Reception staff in particular were incredibly helpful and polite, especially when dealing with masses of different enquiries from numerous customers.

Their language skills were impressive, too. Breakfast was of good quality. Budapest itself is a beautiful city, and is clean, spacious and interesting. I would love to visit again, and would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel.

Good location pretty near to metro which we got from bus station, some nice restaurants nearby as well as convenience stores, Lidl, Spar and smaller ones, also money exchange places, comfortable and spacious room for our needs. This place served well as a base of operations for our exploration of Budapest.

Hotel and facilities:
This is a 3 star hotel part of Accor hotels which has a small reception and 24 hour bar. After a certain time late in the night you can order drinks at the bar to have in your room.

Reception and housekeeping staff were very friendly. The hotel does not have a pool or gym.

If you arrive after midnight, you need to hit the buzzer at the entrance and the 24 hour reception will open the door for you.

Room:
The room was surprisingly very spacious and clean. The aircon worked very well and the large bed was comfortable

Bathroom:
The bathroom was as per the standard Ibis hotel layout. Compact with just enough room, walk in shower and very clean.

Location:
Location is the main reason I booked this hotel. Plenty of bars, restaurants and convenience stores in the immediate vicinity. Walk one way and you will be on the main road with plenty of trams and a short walk to the nearest metro. Walk the other way and in under 10 minutes you will be at the very popular ruin bar Szimpla Kert, the street food ‘Karavan’ and endless amounts of more bars and restaurants.

The streets always felt safe in this area when walking late at night even though there were plenty of drunk fellow travellers and locals around. Even the highly rated New York Palace cafe is 3 minutes walk from this property.

Conclusion:
If you plan on spending most of your time in Budapest exploring this wonderful city and require a comfortable room to rest in, with a clean bathroom and for a good price in an excellent location, look no further!

Ranked among the most romantic hotels in Budapest, our ADULT ONLY hotel provides you a real relaxing atmosphere.
Comfortable beds, polite and helpful staff, extensive breakfast. I liked the room layout, with shower and toilet separate, very comfortable armchairs to relax in. The coffee from the machine in the breakfast room was excellent. The hotel is in a great location close to restaurants, bars and the sights (two minutes’ walk from the Opera House).
The only thing I’d mention is that I’m really not sure Casati Hotel qualifies as an eco-friendly hotel because they provide recycled toilet paper and don’t wash the towels everyday. In this climate emergency age, much more is required. I would suggest:
– ditch the idea of individual toiletries (small plastic bottles, plastic shower caps etc). Provide refillable dispensers for soap (as was provided in the shower), shampoo and conditioner.
– sanitary bags don’t need to be plastic, they can thick paper as on planes. The bins are emptied every day so that would be sufficient.
– please please provide an alternative to the Nespresso machines. All those plastic capsules that must be used each year! A French press and jar of ground coffee in each room would be a good alternative.
I would recommend Casati to anyone visiting Budapest and will stay there again if I ever return!

The location on the Pest side of the Danube is ideal – walking distance from Deák Ferenc tér, between Andrássy út and Király utca, a stone’s throw from the Opera and close to all manner of interesting places. Considering this alone it was excellent value. There are different room “styles” – we stayed in a “Natural” room (look on their website for more details). We didn’t try to pick a specific type and can’t speak for the others, but the “Natural” style was very nice – airy, simple, uncomplicated.

The staff were all extremely polite – without fail greeting us every time we walked past, and without feeling forced – and very helpful. The rooms were kept very clean, and the hotel is very serious about being eco-friendly (more so than anywhere I’ve been before, if that’s important to you). It’s also the little things – the hotel has a very nice sauna in the basement, a decent gym, well-functioning wi-fi, good breakfast – and a fabulous cocktail bar (Tuk Tuk Bar!

The hotel is situated on a quiet side street. Many restaurants, metro station, shops etc. nearby. The decor is nice & quirky with some original artwork scattered on the walls (some in the avant-garde style even). The rooms are sparkling clean and very spacious. Staff was nice and helpful (except for one guy who didn’t seem too interested, but maybe he was having a bad day).
Striving for eco-friendliness, though this could be taken much further – but on local standards, Casati is a shining example. The breakfast was all right, but not too many vegetarian options (unlike mentioned in some earlier comment)). The services (gym, sauna etc) we didn’t try. Overall, a nice little hotel with a good vibe if you enjoy a quiet, relaxing stay.
Breakfast was great and they had a range of things to eat. The buffet is small but then again it’s a small hotel. Saying that there was fresh fruit, at least 3 pastry types, bread, sparkling wine (YES!), 4 types of cereal, lots of different yogurt, salami selection, cheese selection, hot sausage/bacon/egg and plenty more. Breakfast was open until 1200 on weekends and they continued to refill everything throughout the morning so there was plenty to eat. They even had diabetic jams, lactose and gluten free bread along with soya milk.
