Sex Scene and Prostitution
Budapest is a famous prostitution city in Europe. Prostitution in Hungary has been legalized and regulated by the government since 1999. Under the law, prostitutes are basically professionals who engage in sexual activities in exchange for money. The government allows this activity as long as they pay taxes and keep legal documents.
According to the law, local authorities are obliged to mark zones for legal prostitution if there is profound local need. Most local authorities deny the existence of such need, and they often refuse to designate such zones. The trade union of Hungarian prostitutes is still fighting for the zones. There are strict conditions under which prostitutes are to operate, keeping distance away from schools or churches. It is illegal to lend a flat to a prostitute, or to run brothels.

Red Light Districts
Budapest has a reputation for being a kind of massive red light district. This may have been true once, and the laws may well still be more accommodating here (or look the other way more concertedly), but for a visitor keen on something other than sex the red light district is basically invisible and with the exception of the occasional strip-club emerging after 9:00pm (there are a total of two that assert themselves in the center city) and a handful of x-rated video shops, the sex industry has no real marketing presence for those not seeking it out.
Prostitution itself is not a crime, but providing support for it or deriving any kind of profit from it is.
Despite this Budapest is known to many as the capital of sex. They make no secret of the fact that they travel here because of the extensive sex industry and because the prices of sexual services are lower. Another thing that makes this possible is the current attitude of the law enforcement agencies, who turn a blind eye to the enterprises involved with and active in the sex industry.
The foreigners (tourists, businessmen) concentrated in the capital started to discover the girls of Budapest and the possibilities it offered. The most striking thing in this era must have been the enormous difference between the prices. If you were trying to spend a Western salary here, you practically felt like everything was for free. Sex included. Another absolutely palpable difference was and still is the beauty of Hungarian girls. Usually not many people could resist the temptation and started pouring almost all of their money into Budapest nightlife, more specifically into the sex industry.
These days, much of the sex business is in apartments all over the city, with 1-4 girls per apartment. The girls advertise on the internet: you call the number they provided, they give you an approximate location. Then, when you are near the location, you call again and they provide exact address and the number to ping at the gate so that they can let you in. Generally, girls tend to speak at least a minimal amount English necessary to conduct business (although by and large their clientele is local). Some websites also indicate the languages a specific girl speaks.
The main website is badgirls.hu (another web address of the same site is rosszlanyok.hu, which means the same thing in Hungarian). In addition, you can try beszamolok.com, fotogarancia.hu, asscort.hu, lhp.hu/erotika, szexxx.com. This last one has many out-of-date listings, so be careful.
Prices vary. Most girls who advertise on the web charge HUF 10,000 for half an hour, HUF 12,000 for an hour. Some are slightly more expensive. Sex in brothels can be as low as this and as high as triple the price. On the street, girls often ask very high prices and you need to negotiate. HUF 20,000-25,000 for an hour is fair in their case.
You can find street prostitutes in Budapest from these areas (note that these areas frequently change as police sometimes close a location down in effect, by placing a few officers on the spot for the entire night):
- You can find lots of girls standing in front of different hotels in city center. You will get a BJ for about 10-20 000 HUF and one hour suck and fuck around 15-30 000 HUF depending your looks and negotiation skills. You can also pay in Euros.
- In Budapest’s main street Váci Utca there are always girls jumping on foreign tourists and businessmen. A good place to spot these pro ladies is the terrace close to the Burger King.
- Street action is also taken place near the Meridian hotel and between Szabadkai and Gubacsi street.
- You can usually also find street hookers in Thököly street (between Dosza Gyorgy and Hungaria), Chazar Andras Utca Ulloi street, near Budapest Kileti Pu railway station and the rather seedy area around the Ferencvaros railway station.
- Another good hunting ground makes the area between the hotel Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge and the river Danube.
- In the Népliget Park nearby the TIT Planetarium Budapest you can also find often street hookers.
- When you have a car at your disposal you could go into the direction of Gyor, Dabas or Kecskemet, where you will notice a lot of hookers waiting along the road.
- Many line ups can also be seen on the road N60 to Bucharest. Usually they ask cheap prices but be on guard since the local pimps are never far away.
- Nepliget International Coach Terminal (Nepliget Volanbusz palyaudvar) and the West End shopping centre nearby: especially around the Burger King and the metro station you can find a lot of roma girls offering sex for money. Note that the West End area is only during the day - police stop the action at night.
- Blaha Lujza square, sometimes gipsy streetwalkers can be spotted here.
- InterContinental Budapest, in the area around this hotel on Apaczai Csere J. u. 12-14 you can spot many Roma girls willing to join you to your hotel or apartment.
- Astoria, in the underpass and above ground, on the northeast side (corner of Rákoczi and Károly körút) there are a number of streetwalkers. They also stroll a half a block on the north side of Rákoczi and on Károly körút up to the theater.
- Üllői út - this is the road to the airport. There are girls near Nagyvárad tér (primarily on the right side when driving to the airport) and further down, towards Határ út. Some are especially pretty, but some seem underage. Most of the action is between 10 pm and 1 am.
- Kamara erdő, on the outskirts of the town, near the motorway to Vienna.
- Teréz körút, on the entire street (north side only) but especially closer to Octogon. Their primary haunt is in front of the McDonalds near Octogon. The stroll area then continues down on Andrassy ut to Opera.
They come in two varieties. In most strip clubs, it's extremely difficult to get sexual services from the dancers if they are obeying the rules. Instead they might offer you a two-girl private (15 min) lesbian show for about 30 000 HUF (local money).
Then there are a handful of clubs where sex is available, but not with all dancers. Usually, there are one or two girls available for sex, who are usually much less pretty than the dancing-only girls. In addition, there are some brothels that disguise themselves as strip clubs, but those are listed below under "Brothels".
Warning: watch the drink list closely when you are ordering drinks at strip clubs. Sometimes they try to con you having small prints hidden (on last page?) in the lists and you will end up paying high extra charges.
Here is a list of no-sex strip clubs in Budapest:
- 4 Play • Nagymező utca 49• 36 1 705 7510
- Dolce Vita • Október 6 u 5 • 00-36-1-266 4049
- Hallo Bar • Kiraly Utca 65 • +36 1 322 4621
- P1 • Podmaniczky Frigyes 2/b • +36 20 333-8679
The following strip clubs have one or two girls available for sex, but not all:
- Club Kiraly • Kiraly utca.70 • 06-1-352 1359
- Marilyn Table Dance Bar • Baross utca 4 • +36-1/266-56-14
- Unnamed strip club on Galamb utca, near the Marriott
- Several peep shows located in the city centre have also other erotic services on the menu and sometimes girls provide even full service. Most peep shows are located on József körút (like József körút 68). But also on Osvát utca 9 and Ferenc körút 68 you will find establishments.
Brothels / Nightclubs
Brothels in Hungary are not legal but seem to be tolerated to some extent. That said, they are a bit of a dying breed as most of the action is moving to the internet, where the girls who advertise rent their own apartments.
Be careful when asking for the taxi driver’s help when looking for sex or brothels in Budapest. They will probably try to steer you to one of the strip clubs, since they tend to pay them the best money. Fine if this is where you want to go, but not so helpful if you want to find new places for sex.
Hotel staff can also recommend prostitutes. Major hotels (and plenty of small ones) tend to have a few girls that they regularly offer to clients. This is a reasonably safe approach as the girls have an obvious stake in playing fair with you.
- Zug Bar, One of the oldest and most trustable brothels, with generally a reasonably wide selection. The club operates as a drink bar/topless bar, the girls dance on the stage. It is a bit of out of town, but not too far, about 20 minutes by cab from downtown at night. Open 9 pm to 5 am. Check out their website: Zug Bar - The award from the US Army for "entertaining" soldiers is really funny.
- Belami, near Zugbar. Small, usually 3-4 girls only. Also operates as a normal hotel.
- Mambo Night Club, on Hegyalja út. The selection varies, and there are sometimes some girls who dance only. A bit pricey, with HUF 30,000-35,000 for an hour, but centrally located, near Elizabeth Bridge on the road leading to the motorway to Vienna.
- Sweet Escorts, near Nyugati on Teréz körút. This brothel does not disguise itself as a night club. You must ring the bell from the street. Security or the owner will come down and lead you upstairs, where there are 4-8 girls usually. Most of them are 30-40 years old and not the best looking ones, but the prices are affordable: about 12,000 HUF for half an hour.
- Unnamed brothel on Perényi út, across the street from the shopping mall. Dial +36 70 602 9973 for exact address. They like you to book ahead at least 30 minutes. The girls are pretty, but it can be a rip-off. Sometimes you pay full price, and then the girl tells you you are not her type and she will only felate you, etc.
- Unnamed Chinese brothel near KÖKI shopping center. There are 3-4 Chinese girls with a mama-san. Language is likely to be a barrier as they tend not to speak any language beyond Chinese.
- BunnyHouse, in this villa outside the city of Budapest you can have sex two times with a two different ladies of your choice for €200. There is a taxi transfer (one way free) offered from Budapest to this club located on on Hóvirág u. 50. This place might have closed.
There are also a number of brothels outside Budapest, but not too far, on the roads towards Vác, Kecskemét, etc.
