Prostitution in Budapest
Prostitution in Hungary is fully legal being regulated by the state authorities. As a result, the city of Budapest has a lively sex scene which provides work for over 7000 sex workers. The city represents at least a third, if not half of all of Hungary’s prostitutes.
Despite the relaxed legislation, organised prostitution including operating a brothel is not legal though these do exist under different guises and are often tolerated by the authorities (see Brothels, below).
Whilst many prostitites are migrants, attracted by the lure of legal paid work, you can find local ladies working in licensed venues and on the street.
Prices vary depending on where you engage the services of a sex worker in Budapest but are generally €40-€60 per hour with elite models costing more. Brothels can be double this price and street prostitutes will try their luck so be prepared to negotiate. Escorts often start at around €180 per hour but can be as much as €300.
You can find details of the types of businesses were you can receive sexual services as well as street prostitutes and escorts in our guide below.
Budapest Escorts Guide
Many of Budapest’s prostitutes are available for escort services with most choosing to remain independent. There are some agencies who provide introduction services. We’ve provided details of the main ways to book an escort in Budapest along with some price guidelines.
This Hungarian site is a directory of sex services and is the biggest of its kind in the country. Through the service you can find over 700 escorts, 250+ massage providers and you can even filter the results for fetish services.
The site authenticates all of the photos used in the ads and even offer a 10,000 HUF (€32) refund if you find a fake photo.
The search function is great and it allows you to find escorts based on location, age and physical attributes.
The best part of this site is the fact that each escort has reviews published on their profile pages meaning you can get some assurances of the quality of service from other punters before you make a booking.
You need to register with the site in order to contact the girls via email but you can see from their profiles when they were last online. Judging from the website, the girls who advertise on Rosslanyok are quite prompt with responses. Phone numbers are also provided on each profile.

Most are Hungarian but all are verified by the service, which has good reviews.

Rates on these sites vary a lot but you can expect to pay around €200-€300 per hour for an outcall service.
Sex in Budapest
Getting sex in Budapest is easy enough but the lines can be a bit blurred on the kind of venue you are actually visiting. Brothels often double up as strip or night clubs and massage parlours could be escort agencies. We’ve tried to group those establishments where you can get sex in the city into categories but be mindful that in some of these clubs, other services may be offered.
You won’t find overtly obvious brothels in Hungary as organised prostitution isn’t legalised. However, brothels do operate in Budapest but most are run as private nightclubs, strip clubs or escort agencies. Many massage parlours are (to all intents and purposes) run as brothels (see Erotic Massage Parlours, below) and you can often get full service with your body rub.
Zug-Bár Night Club
Bonyhádi út 141, 1141 Budapest
Zug’s has a policy on fair pricing and running a ‘clean’ venue which has earned them an award from the US Army; services for ‘Entertainment’ in case you are wondering! The place is mainly a bar and nightclub with strip shows but you can also arrange for an in-call service with one of their girls. There are several private rooms available including the domina room.
Open from 9.00pm to 5.00am, the Zug bar isn’t the most centrally located brothels in Budapest but it is one of the oldest and most reputable.
Csömöri út 94, 1147 Budapest
The Belami Bar and Lodging House is a small brothel in the north east of the city.
There are ten rooms in this hotel and they run an on-site erotic show in the bar every night from 9.00pm to 5.00pm. The girls who work here provide full service for guests or extra rooms can be used.
The venue also has a jacuzzi and sauna.
Prices here are very reasonable and you can get full service from around 12,000 HUF (€40).
Mambo Café & Strip Bar
Hegyalja út 2, 1016 Budapest
This nightclub and strip bar also operates an on site brothel.
Entrance is free and the club is centrally located not far from the Elizabeth Bridge.
You can enjoy the strip entertainment and stay in the bar to browse the selection of working girls but the drinks prices are quite high. Private dances start at around 10,000 HUF (€32) with a service costing at least 35,000 HUF (€115).
The club is open from 9.00pm to 5.00am, daily.
Király u. 70, 1068 Budapest
Like the Mambo club, you can expect strip shows and even massage on site at the Kiraly Club though principally this is a brothel.

Entrance to the club is free and you can visit Kiraly from 8.00pm to 5.00am, Monday to Sunday.
Podmaniczky Frigyes tér 2, 1054 Hungary
P1 has the reputation locally for being one of the best places in Budapest to get a service. P1 is just a few minutes from the Basilica and is a relatively new venue in the city. .
The club runs regular offers to tempt in tourists and the latest is free entry and an open bar voucher from just €25. You can only receive discounts if you arrive on foot or via their free taxi service; for some reason, if you arrive by any other taxi you must pay an entry fee (3,000 HUF or €10).
As with many of the establishments featured on this list, the P1 club has two faces; the primary one being a strip club with erotic shows/lap dances (10,000 HUF/€32) and the second being a brothel service.

Sas u. 9, 1051 Hungary
Run by the same owners as the P1 club, Club P2 also operates the same voucher system and uses the same stable of girls to provide services.
In fact, the only difference between the two clubs is location. P2 is the original venue and the one that initially earned the reputation for being a safe and reliable establishment. Prices are good and the staff aren’t pushy; both reasons make this a popular place for tourists.
P2 also has a restaurant on site which is open from 7.00pm to midnight; the club opens its doors at 9.00pm and closes at 5.00am.

Budapest is called the ‘Paris of the East’, not just for its architecture and for being quite cosmopolitan but also because of its thriving street prostitution.

Generally, the following areas are popular with street prostitutes in Budapest after 10.00pm with rates being anywhere from 10,000 to 30,000 (€32-€96) HUF for a service.

- The main shopping street of Váci Utca gets bust after dark.

- The area around Kós Károly téri park
- Outside the Ferencvaros and Budapest Kileti Pu railway station
