100% locally owned and operated, The Groove offers comfort, quality and style to make sure you enjoy Budapest and make the most of your stay. Cleanliness is an absolute must for us and our renownded super-comfortable beds with orthopedic mattresses will make you sleep like a baby so you can be fresh and ready for your adventure in the city the next day.

Our helpful local staff will take care of your needs around the clock, and you will never be short of information on what to see and do here. In case you prefer finding your own info you can go online anytime on our computer or use the wireless network, all for free. If you are looking for company, find a cooking partner in the fully equipped kitchen, hang out with fellow travellers in our lounge or watch a movie in our cozy TV-corner. In addition to the lounge area, all our spacious rooms offer chillout areas for you to enjoy the beautiful view and make new friends.

The Groove is located in the very heart of the city in what is probably the nicest area for travellers and locals alike. Our house and the theatre next door are both protected national monuments and offical parts of Hungary's national cultural heritage.
We are just 3 blocks from Nyugati train station, the center of public and long distance transportation and 2 blocks from the Danube river. You are no more than a 10-minute walk from anywhere you may want to go including the main tourist attractions such as the Parliament, the Basilica or Margaret Island, as well as great nightlife and shopping areas plus some hidden treasures of the city that only we can tell you about...
Our building features a 24h-pub and one of our favorite cinemas in town screening international movies with original sound, with a non-stop restaurant just across the street and 3 grocery stores and a dozen cafes and bars within 2 blocks.

Be careful, a stay at The Groove is so pleasant you will not want to leave!
(As proven by dozens of guests who came for days and stayed for weeks...)
