We traveled halfway around the world to meet our good friends, Grace and John Micetich, in Budapest. They had been living in London for 41 days and we had been driving slowly through the Balkan states for almost that long.
So we were way past due for a catch-up visit. Why not in Budapest?
We arrived by train, an easy and …
On our last night on AmaDolce, the captain took us for a night time sail around the river front of Budapest to see the beautiful illuminated monuments. It was an emotional end to our week and the perfect way to spend the last evening with some of our new friends. Here I wanted to share some of the ...
... Danube River, and across the river, the parliament building. It was an impressive sight, and we took a few pictures of the area before heading back to the hotel. Although we had to rush it, it was nice to explore some of the area of town around the river before heading to the station. As we rushed to pack our things, we planned our route from the Vienna train station to the hotel in Vienna on the free wi-fi, and checked out ...

... know that we would eat it all for sure! Our starters came, a bruschetta and a white sausage with pretzel. It was yum! A girl came to ask if we were ready for our mains, said we would like a little longer then 30 seconds later our mains come out haha. Ah well.
The food was delicious and the beers good! Eventually it was time to head back to the hostel in hope of waking to go and explore Salzberg!

TravelPod Member ReviewsBaross City Hotel Budapest
We stayed here with friends who had booked the room on a recommendation from someone else. It turned out to be OK. Our room was clean but tiny with hardly enough space to walk around the bed. The staff were not very helpful and seemed to be bored most of the time. It's across from the Keleti Train Station, which is great if you arrive there, but a fairly long walk to the river and main sights, but you can take the Hop On Hop tour bus, which is a great way to see Budapest if you're short on time.

Historical Traveler Reviews Baross City Hotel Budapest
On arrival at this hotel my first impression was neutral, seemed a bit different and almost bordering run down.
Check in was straight forward except to be told they didn't accept credit cards only cash! I don't carry that sort of money at home let alone a foreign country with a reasonably high crime rate, so be prepared for bank charges for foreign cash advances!
The room was adequate but over heated, walls are very thin, nice to hear the people next door being sick throughout the night.
Breakfast was minimal and they use squash instead of real juice, not really a thirst quencher!
As far as the Hotel overall is concerned there is nothing bad to say about it, apart from one small point about it being a bit out of the way if you're looking for nightlife. The reception area is simple and modern, the staff are very helpul and speak excellent English and will help you with your Magyar if you ask. The breakfast buffet has something for eveyone and will keep you going into the afternoon. Their luggage and passport storage is excellent as well.
Even thought Hotel Baross is set just on the edge of Keleti Pu Train Station (as busy as Waterloo and as cosmopolitan in all ways), nearly all rooms face the tranquil court yard. Noise is not a problem whatsoever. The rates are very reasonable and inc. a good buffet breakfast. It was the little extras that clinced it such as the very helpful, multi-lingual staff, free luggage store, air-conditioned rooms, free safe in your room, etc. For those non-smokers, reception is an open area and smoking is permitted, however, not in the breakfast room so it wasn't a problem. The Hotel itself has a Baroque feel on the outside, however, has shops along the ground floor so the entrance looks quite hidden - the reception is on the 5th floor - there are apartments on the rest. There is a doorman at night (friendly too) - all in all a good, very economical hotel with great public transport links and only 3 metro stops from the Danube 'view of the castle' restaurant area (Deak Ferenc Ter). Would highly recommend for a good, clean, friendly hotel - not too many frills but all the basics are of a high standard :)
I do not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone who wants a comfortable stay in the centre of Budapest.
We spent 3 days last week at this hotel. We were approached by one of their associates at the train station (they have a booth there) upon our arrival in Budapest. The hotel occupies the top floors of a well kept apartment building across from the Keleti train station. The reception area is sleek and modern, with a good selection of pamphlets, postcards, etc. The staff speak excellent English and were very friendly. We paid approx $80 USD per night (I am sure that people pay more in busy times) for a large room overlooking the surprisingly quiet shopping area around the station with a double bed and two singles. The room had a TV and minibar and was en-suite. The bathroom was imacculate and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was very generous and included in the room rate: scrambled eggs, meat, cheeses, yogurt, cereals, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and a variety of spreads for rolls. The final benefit of our stay was that we were in front of a metro line and had easy and quick transport to the different sights of Budapest.
