... real experience of culture shock: Bathing suits in Europe
Since I have an aversion to public pools I did not partake in the bath (other than sitting on the edge) so I had ample time to observe people. I expected to see speedos, but I did not expect to see speedos on men over the age of 35 with a gut resembling Santa Clause. But what was most impressive was how comfortable everyone was with each other. Most often in America you will see ...
... apartment, slammed the bags down and hit the streets. I had, for some time now, really been looking forward to seeing Hungary and especially Budapest as, what may come as a surprise to everyone, I actually know a little bit of history about the region. The country itself is more than a 1,000 years old, and it was never really that peaceful. Endless battles, Kings, Queens and all that royal jargon, allies that turned into enemies and enemies that turned into allies all help ...
... you to sit and enjoy your time. The people here are so warm and helpful and you instantly feel how genuine it is. There is absolutely no tourist feel to the hospitality. The waiter brought our Soproni and the lovely elderly couple in the table near us turned to us and raised their glasses to say "Cheers". My accent must have given me away because they both said "American" at the same time when I attempted the same toast. I said yes and the man said "to your health lovely ...

The next couple days in Budapest were super relaxing: toured all day, stopped for Hungarian cakes and coffee in the afternoon, then went out to very Eastern European clubs at night (think aggressively loud techno and whole rooms of people swaying to the beat, solo). The city is divided into Buda and Pest (who knew?), and while we mainly explored ...
... you could already apreciate the beauty and elegance of this city, which didn't have anything to envy to Vienna. It had, besides, a touch of eastern europe that you could see in some broken walls or bad manteined paints. In general, an aspect a bit more careless and poor than its close central european neightbour.
We changed currency and went into the subway on our way to the hostel. Carlos was staying in a hotel and me, i just found myself coming ...

Historical Traveler Reviews B & B Bellevue Budapest
L'idéal pour visiter Budapest
grand calme, bien placé, accueil très agréable et éclairé, chambres propres. Excellent rapport qualité prix (n'allez pas croire qu'il y a la clim, une piscine, ou autre luxe ....tout de même, je n'ai pas dit çà !!!)
I have travelled throughout Europe many times, have stayed in every type of accomodation, and never have I felt as completely at home as I did here! Upon arrival, the owners and I sat on the beautiful terrace and we chatted (If they're reading this, remember me? The girl who loves Petula Clak!) about travelling and music etc, and they provided me with a wonderfully detailed map and gave me plenty of insight on ways to get around. Their restaurant recommendations were spot-on. My room was absolutely lovely, spotlesslty clean and cozy, and very spacious. The shower/toilet were fine, especially by European standards as far as space goes. There was also a really nice balcony in my room overlooking the courtyard; at night I would sit there and listen to some music, enjoy a cigarette, chat with friends at home. Breakfast was perfect--fresh bread, meats, cheeses, cereals, yogourt, etc..you get to meet your fellow guests, which I enjoyed. It's also very centrally located, just about a two minute walk to the Bettany Ter metro (I think I spelled that wrong)
Like Staying with Relatives
Staying at the Bellevue B&B was like staying with a relative who puts you in a comfortable room, introduces you to the other guests, prepares you a satisfying breakfast, and sends you off for the day with the map, suggestions, and directions to have a good stay. From the B&B you can walk up the hill to the castle, or down the hill to the square with the bus/tram.metro station. The location couldn't be better.
Home away from home
This is a wonderful b&b! It is in a beautiful and quiet residential area of Budapest on the Buda side of the river, about 5-10 minutes' walk to Metro/bus/tram stops, restaurants, grocery store and post office. It is also very near to all the sites on Castle Hill.
The proprietors, Judit and Lajos, speak English very well. They are wonderfully helpful, patient, kind and good-humored and they seem to tend to attract a similar type of traveler to their small b&b.
This truly felt like our "home away from home" and I would definitely stay there again should I be lucky enough to travel again to Budapest.
An excellent choice
I strongly recommend this bed and breakfast. The owners were great - very helpful and provided a nice breakfast in the morning. I had a big room with a panoramic window over the Danube all for 47 Euros. The location is also very close to lots of things you will be seeing in Castle Hill, and about 5 minutes walk from the closest metro (though up a lot of stairs).
The Bellevue is a great place to stay and in a super location. Here's why we liked it:
Loved the Bellevue
We stayed here in Oct and found it to be a great place to stay. It was convenient and had some great views. Judit is serves a very good breakfast and she and her husband speak very good English. We would reccomend it to everyone. Jim from Pa
We stayed in Bellevue for almost a week and we had a great time. Budapest is a wonderfull city that needs to be explored carefully, that means: the city won't ´give´ itself immediately, it - except the without any doubt extremely beautiful Danube-riverbanks - has te develope in your mind, at least it had in ours. But when it happens you'll love the place. B&B Bellevue is located at the Buda-side of the city, right beneath the Fishermans Bastion, close to shops, a bank, restaurants and - very good - public transport. But, if you, as we do, like to walk, there is not a single problem either. Everything, except the outskirts, is easily reached on foot. Especially the morning- and eveningwalk across the Chainbridge is recommendable. Judit and Lajos speak excellent English, and are very friendly and helpfull people, there almost isn't a question that will be left unanswered. They know all about locations, transport and they can make arrangements for you if you like. We had a nice breakfast in the kitchen/breakfastroom, at a big table together with other guests from all over the world, wich we found entertaining and interesting (Did you know Hungarian dentists get costumers from all over Europe? Did you know there are Americans travelling trought Europe by train - and loving it? Did you know Tom Lanoye has a twin brother?) So the company is okay, and the food is, but wait till Judit decides it's time to have you taste her omelet! The rooms are clean and well kept and in ours there were fine reproductions of paintings by Klimt. Most rooms have a spacious balcony. Isn't there anything te be said against Bellevue? Well, I can't really think of it.
Great place to stay
This is a great little B&B centrally located in Budapest, very near castle hill. The Bellevue is a few minutes walk from the downtown, so there is very little noise at night (I slept fine with the windows open). But, everything in the city is within walking distance.
The rooms were clean; the breakfasts tasty and ample, and the owners very helpful and friendly. The furnishings (particularly the bed) were somewhat modest, but the cost to stay here is so inexpensive that the overall value of the place can't be beat. I would definitely stay here again. If you can, stay in room 3, which has a balcony and a view over the city.
Very Nice Stay in Budapest
Very well kept, nice location. Great Breakfast, Advice and Hospitality from Judit and her husband. Will return when next in Budapest! Jon & Tammy
