First of all I have to admit that for me Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities in the hall world, as arhitectural or as a personal point of view of the city. As all the capitals I've been before has a bit of everything of all to keep every kind of people alive. You have to visit it to admit I was right. Enjoy
Definitely worth a visit. Lovely open clean spacious city. Fantastic architecture, many sites, attractions to visit. Boat trip on the Danube a must and the baths a definite. Would definitely return to this beautiful city.
What a beautiful city, however it is very much let down by the locals. The Hungarian people of Budapest that we came across E.g at the metro and in our local shop of spar just to name a few were very very rude to us, by which we felt was because of our race. I feel that we were very much made to feel uncomfortable everywhere we went, by men and women. It's such a shame because I feel there is a lot to Budapest however we could not experience it probably because of the locals making us feel uncomfortable. We went to szechenyi spa and gellert hill just to name a few of the landmarks we went to however we felt too uncomfortable and almost made to leave. I feel that if you want Budapest and especially Hungary to make the money it needs then you best appreciate us tourist rather then be point blank rude. Just re Think the reasons you even have tourists coming to Budapest and be a bit nicer to us English.
If I had to describe Budapest in one word it would be "Wow". It has so many beautiful buildings and things to see. The people there are so friendly and helpful - if they see that you are struggling to understand directions or signs, they will ask you if you need any help with the language and most people speak good English. The city becomes magical at night, when the buildings are illuminated it is as if someone has painted them gold in an instant - the parliament building is not to be missed. I was impressed by the variety of trams and electric powered (from overhead cables) busses. In my opinion, a city that does not have trams on it's streets is not worth visiting (London, take note 🙂). Trams are such a civilised way to travel and see the city. In addition to all of the above - I found Budapest to be such good value for money. Okay, there are relatively expensive "tourist traps" where you will pay £3 for a beer but, walk down the next street where the locals eat and drink and you will get a bowl of goulash, delicious fresh bread AND a beer for £3 .... I plan to return to this fantastic city (or should I say cities - Buda and Pest ?) probably in winter, hoping to see a sprinkling of snow on the parliament building, churches and castle ... which would be the icing on the cake !
4 nights in an apartment 15 minutes walk to all the bridges, for under 100 pounds, beer between 1 and 2 pounds , huge ice cream 50p, meals out all under a fiver, need I go on!. If your on a tight budget Budapest is the place to visit , lovely river Danube with it's gorgeous bridges , make sure you see it at nightime! . lovely bars and eating places all over the city and a first class zoo if you have kids in tow. make sure you have a good map otherwise your get lost!. and surprisingly few speak English.
Nice clean rooms with air con and big showers. Stayed here for work visit to Central European University. Overlooks a typical Budapest courtyard. Well situated for a lot of Pest attractions, including shopping district. Would definitely stay here again.
Picked these two up in the arrivals area near the luggage belts. The map was brilliant it had all the train/tram/bus and metro numbers and stops detailed so clearly on it. Had a guide book but never used or needed it as this map was so good.
A fantastic city. Ideal for walking around and seeing special sights around each corner. Take a river cruise to start (1 hour) as it helps your orientation and ability to plan what you want to focus on. More than one weekend worth of viewing. Hop on hop off bus ideal to get you started. Do not go for the giraffe option, closed roof, no air conditioning and not as frequent. That was our only mistake! A lovely weekend enjoyed by us all (3couples).
My husband and I visited beautiful Budapest for a few days in May. The guide books state that both Forints and Euros are accepted everywhere, however that is not the case; Euros were not accepted at the airport or in any of the shops or bars. A list of basic phrases in Hungarian or German is advisable as most of the locals could not speak English and in some places we were completely ignored. The public transport of buses and trams was simply great and a fabulous way to not only see the city centre but also the surrounding areas. You need to purchase tickets before jumping on and off. You can't visit Budapest without a cruise down the Danube; a lovely gentle way to see all the fabulous architecture this great city had to offer.
First time in Budapest and I would just like to say it was amazing. The people was very friendly and the city was clean. The building and the history of Budapest is amazing So if you like your history and friendly people then Budapest is place to be The nightlife is great and the clubs and bars are some of the best that I have seen and been to for a while So for a good weekend and good people then Budapest is the place
