  • Had a wonderful experience at Faust Wine Cellar. Sommelier was extremely enthusiastic and full of knowledge, the wines were amazing and the setting incredible. Enjoyed the experience so much we have booked in to come again. If travelling with luggage make sure to take a few bottles home.
  • A tasting at Faust Wine Cellar was one of the highlights of our visit to Budapest! Finding the entrance is a bit difficult as it's through a bit of a maze in the hotel, however directions provided when we booked the tasting were very good and there are signs to point you in the correct direction. Gabor had a great selection of Hungarian wines for us to try and was very knowledgeable - each came with a bit of a background about the vineyard and highlights about what made the wine unique. Would definitely recommend if you're in Budapest - we'll definitely come by again if we're in the city!
