"Congrats to Tony and the entire staff at Bestsellers. I've been visiting them and buying books there almost since my arrival in Budapest in 1999. Everyone there has always been very professional and efficient. Still the best place in town for English-language books. Obviously still going strong because of their great service and welcoming ambiance. Here's to another 25 years!"

Gary Lukatch


"Great shop--big selection of English-language books including a section of works by Hungarian authors. They saved me when I ran out of books on my trip last April."

Christa Smith Clark


"Yours is clearly the best English language bookstore in Central Europe. Take it from me, a Central European specialist, whose main beat for many years has been Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna and Prague."

Cesar D. Beltran


"Boldog születésnapot kívánunk házi könyvtárunk egyik legnagyobb beszállítójának :-) ! 25 éve a hazai könyvimádók szolgálatában; köszönjük a kedves és szakszerű kiszolgálást és sok sikert kívánunk az elkövetkezendő 25 évre is…!"

Kovács Tibor


"Bestsellers is the place to be for English language readers in Budapest! The bookstore, though not very big at first glance, offers an extensive collection of old and new titles spanning genres and subject matters. An added plus is the meticulous staff, who are always there to help you or simply make your day more enjoyable through their friendly attitude. "

Daniel Penev


"I'm so happy I found this bookstore while visiting Budapest!! They have a great variety of books for English readers. The gentleman working the counter was so kind and knowledgeable. He seems to really care about his customers and books! Highly recommend Bestsellers!! "

Maura Corcoran


"This is my "lifeline" in Budapest. You see I'm an avid reader but it was difficult to find the books I liked to read in the city...until my mom discovered Bestsellers! It saved my life!!! I absolutely love browsing through the shelves. It felt so much like my second home. Thank you Bestsellers."

Ma Lea Fiona Estrada


"The best bookstore with English books in Budapest so far. They offer some books in other languages too. French, German, Russian.... I have even found Sophie Kinsella book in Italian that I needed so much!"

Kamilya Basyrova


"Love this bookstore - It was my lifeline when I spent a year teaching English in Hungary in 1993-1994 when it was brand new! I bought many a Lonely Planet there back in the day. When I go back to Budapest (which has been way too long now), I always go for the pleasure of finding Hungarian works in translation that are difficult to find elsewhere, and of course I go for the sheer nostalgia of it. I'm so pleased to see you all are still going strong!! Greetings from Paris. "

Kim Baker Sassi


"Happy Birthday to Bestsellers - surprisingly fresh and wise at the same time this age of 25!!! :) We love You, Budapest Booklovers."

Csilla Tompa


"Found this bookstore in 2014 when we visited Budapest the first time, and now that we live here....we visit this shop often...not just for books...but journals, magazines and they have an awesome quotable card selection. "

Erzsebet Ann


"Beautiful bookshop next to the basilica!! Great variety of books and very welcoming staff and owner!!"

Michelle Khoueiss


"If you don’t find it here , you probably wont find it anywhere else in Budapest. I was one of its patrons till Apple introduced eBooks :( But I still have the occasional longing for a real book !"

Ganesh Hariharan


"Sono stata nella libreria nel marzo 2014 e ho apprezzato la grande varietà di romanzi in lingua italiana. Molte le offerte anche in altre lingue. Una tappa obbligatoria per chi si trova a Budapest!"

M Salvini, Toscana, Italia


"The right books in English about Hungarian history and great literature by Hungarians! The owner Tony is also so helpful! A must drop by near St. Stephen's Basilica!"

Peter Varga, Michigan, USA


"Bestsellers was my oasis during most of my 17 years in Budapest. A superb selection of books and periodicals and the option of timely delivery of most anything that wasn't in stock. It pioneered the concept of friendly and knowledgeable shop personnel in Budapest. The world needs more Bestsellers!"

Jacob Doyle, Turkey


"Excellent (predominantly English language) bookshop with helpful staff."

G. Boyd-Gibbins, Budapest


"Wonderful place to visit in Budapest! We were able to get recommendations for novels that interested us. The staff, including the owner Tony, were attentive and very helpful. Looking forward to visiting this bookstore again in the near future."

S Varga, USA


"I can highly recommend this bookshop as being one of the most long-standing providers for all residents and expats alike. Not only has this shop been providing an outstanding service to all its customers over the 2O odd years in existence, but its friendliness, quality with a smile, orderliness and excellent range of materials for young and old alike, lend it to being a great 'drop-in' place whilst ambling around its gorgeous location near the Basilica....one very happy customer!"

Aly Murphy, Newcastle upon Tyne


"The assistants are friendly, intelligent, pretty (I mean the ladies!) and they order me all the books and movies I would like to buy. I wish I could order more."

Péter Hahner, Budapest


"I am a customer for 12 years now, and I am staying for a lot more. The perfect choice for any book lover."

Adam Juhasz, Hungary


"A great place for booklovers"

Elayne Antalffy


"Bestsellers is Budapest's first English-language bookstore (opened in 1992). With its spacious and bright interior, the shop is a popular meeting spot for English-speaking travelers. The store has a wide selection of fiction, as well as reasonably good collection of travel books, including books on Hungary. A wide selection of newspapers and magazines is also available"

Frommer's Budapest


"Budapest expats' favourite bookstore offers the city's best selection of foreign literature."

TimeOut Budapest


"Budapest’s oldest and best English-language bookshop, with thousands of titles; English and Hungarian literature, travel and reference, academic and children’s books, as well as newspapers and magazines. Staff are friendly and can order books in."

The Rough Guide to Budapest


"Our favourite English-language bookshop in town, with fiction, travel guides and lots of Hungarica, as well as a large selection of magazines and newspapers overseen by master bookseller Tony Láng. Helpful staff are at hand to advise and recommend."

Lonely Planet Budapest


"Not many children, but plenty of big kids, turned up at Bestsellers bookstore in District V at 1am on Friday night to get their hands on the latest instalment of the Harry Potter saga."

Budapest Business Journal, 2005. július 18


"Már több mint 3 éve vagyok rendszeres vásárlója ennek a remek boltnak. A munkatársak gyorsak és kedvesek, mindig igyekeznek megtalálni a számomra legkedvezőbb feltételeket. Szívből ajánlom a Bestsellerst mindenkinek."

Mészáros Edina


"Valóban sokkal könnyebb s egyszerűbb a Bestsellers-en keresztül idegennyelvű könyvekhez hozzájutni ahelyett, hogy az embernek mindenféle személyes adatokat kellene kiszolgáltatni a külföldi online könyvesboltok számára, méghozzá úgy, hogy az embernek egy internetes ívbe kell beírnia ezeket, bankkártyaszámostul, mindenestül..."

Pálmai Ede


"A legjobb ilyen bolt az országban. Sajnos, az egyetlen, ennek ellenére kitünő."

Lánchidi István


"Évek óta innen szerzem be az angol nyelvű könyveimet. Az üzlet munkatársai nagyon kedvesek és segítőkészek. A megrendeléseket gyorsan és pontosan teljesítik, a bolt választéka pedig széles és sokszínű. Szerettel ajánlom mindenkinek, aki szeret olvasni! :)"

Könyvmoly


"A bolt felhozatalában értelemszerűen az angol részleg az uralkodó. Balról rögvest egy komoly és sok igényt kielégítő napilap- és képesmagazin-polc foglalja el a falat. Két kényelmes fotel is vár itt ránk, s tapasztalatból állíthatjuk, leülhetünk, akár egy kávézóban, s a mégoly hosszúra nyúló lapozgatás során se szól senki ránk. Közben azt is látjuk, hogy jönnek, sétálgatnak a vevők, van, aki csak napilapért lép be (a Wall Street Journal-tól a Le Monde-ig), látszik, hogy él a bolt."
