We booked quite a while in advance however when we arrived the room we booked and paid for in advance was unavailable as they were full. We were only told this after thinking we had been given the wrong room by mistake.
The place is quite noisy as I got woken up every night in the early hours. Whatever was above us sounded like it would come through the ceiling.
We were impressed with the breakfst that was included however the collection of dead bugs squashed into the table cloth put us off as well as some mouldy meat on the second day.
The staff were a mixture of helpful and just plain uninterested and uncaring.
Now for the good points, its close to everything while being a nice distance away way too. Right between two tram stops.
The view from our room over the river was beautiful and being woken up in the morning by the duks swimming past really made us smile.
Its not the best place we have ever stayed however it is also not all bad, we were dissapointed that our booking clearly ment nothing and nothing wad done to try and rectify it. We wouldnt stay again.

... point for a stretch and chance to get something to eat and drink was hectic due to it being hliday time here as well. I guess one issue when travelling in peak season. On arrival at the hotel we were allocated our rooms before a quick orientation walk to see what is around the hotel. Unfortunately 30 mins was not really enough time to get one self tidied up before going out and having dinner. There relly was not a rush to do this and we should have been given a little more time to ...
... passionate about it. The area is now very up market with high end shops, but mostly not Jewish owned. She took us past a number of Synagogs and showed us the old cemetery in the Ghetto. Because of the lack of space up to 24 people are buried in the one grave, and some graves are tight up against the one next to it. As we were finishing this tour the thunderstorm hit. Well the clothes we have on that need to last us three day, as we do not have en-suite facilities ...
... our hands. And so the longest night of the trip began, with Laura falling asleep at 3am and Tom not getting any zzzz's till about 4. Awaking dead to the world we began our first day, which was designated to venture about the famous monuments in around Stalins park and Petrins Hill, detouring via the castle. Being a extremely overcast day, we unfortunately did not get to enjoy the views which the lookouts were rumored to give but did love the different monuments we got ...
... searched the train station apothecary without any luck. As I walked back to the posting board, I heard a voice call my name. It was Rayden from the beer tour the night before. It turned out we were on the same train to Vienna, and staying in the same Hostel. I find the world to be full of coincidence, and doubly so when traveling.
We boarded our train and sat across from each other at a small table in our car. He told me about ...
... with tourists and tour guides, everything is adapted to fit the typical tourist needs, and the prices of meals and basic stuff around what’s called the Old Town are absurd when compared to stuff from the supermarket.
But that’s the way it is. I actually did research some good restaurants and ended up having a super tasty schnitzel with butter potatoes. Unfortunately the quantity on the plate wasn’t enough to kill my hunger, but the place was ...
