Fantastic location Posted 23-Mar-2015
Central Budapest, close to hop on and off bus, easy access to all sights, staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Watch for service charges adds normally 13% to all bills. Castle hill worth evening dining. Fantastic views and atmosphere. Had great time with only one disappointment. Red and yellow hop on bus service offered free boat trip. As a leisure sailor I am perhaps a little more aware of the need for safety. The trip was in an unseaworthy boat, areas roped off obviously under repair, choughing diesel fumes, no obvious safety equipment or life rafts and vastly overcrowded. The staff looked like thugs rather than experienced sailors. The accident on the Thames immediately came to mind and I was so alarmed we got off before it started. Don't miss the bathes, no matter your age or mobility, brilliant day ignore the weather. Allow at least two hours and try all the bathes lie in natural spring water of at least 36 degrees. You will be in heaven if you like meat. Everything meal has good quality meat in many different forms and tastes. Not a great place for veggies. Wine very pleasant and inexpensive. We were made welcome every where we went. A lovely place to spend a city break. No more than 5 days, 3 would be ideal. Everything is priced in both euros and Hungarian currency. Travel with only euros no need for local currency.
