Travel Blogs from Budapest
We left Prague at the crack of dawn and ventured two blocks to the "unsavory locals" ridden train station. Don't think I've even clutched that much to my luggage in Africa. Anyhow after some time we purchased our tickets and were on our way in a mad rush for Budapest because they only announced the platform 10 minutes before the train leaves. It …
... a younger person’s hotel; brightly coloured, pub crawl advertisements everywhere and a party terrace. They even had a free breakfast every morning (and breakfast is just the best.) That night, we walked around trying to find a place to hang out, but we realized that Hungary doesn’t always accept Euros, but rather a highly inflated currency called the Forint. That wasn’t even the weirdest part about that night, while we were ...
... have two regular seats to Romania. We decided against the sleeper car because it would actually cost more than we have been paying for hostels and we are pretty good at sleeping up. I brought my alpaca blanket, so we can snuggle and sleep soundly (I hope). At least we do not have any transfers or long stops in the middle of the night like the last train from Belgium to Switzerland via the Netherlands and Germany.
Once business was taken care of we made our way to Heroes ...
... cold to very hot bath water style, which was a little too hot to stand, especially in 30+ degrees direct sunshine, however I imagine this would be delightful during the winter.. The temperature during the day in Budapest often topped 35 degrees, which was a problem for our van, which was parked in direct sunshine in a car park. We always try to park in the open or under lights, to maximise security in areas where we're not entirely ...
... no buses available anymore for Sunday to go to Budapest. So I'd have to get a ticket for Saturday night and an overnight bus. FML! Samedi 7 septembre 2013 I did the free walking tour in the morning. Got bored and left half-way through. Bought and sent some postcards. If you're finding that a lot of my postcards these days are just quotes, it's because I'm getting lazy. Hahaha! I want to send postcards, but I can't be bothered thinking of anything to write. Soon ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Burg Hotel Budapest
Burg in Buda
We stayed here for 3 nights in March and the only negative feature was the hammering mentioned by the previous poster. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable and the location convenient. We found it easy to walk down the hill and across the bridge, jump on and off trams and buses. We found some charming restaurants both in Buda and Pest, especially the little A La Carte Kisetterem near Batthany Ter, good food, good local wine, helpful waiters and great prices. The Burg Hotel gives good value at reasonable prices and we would recommend.
Me and my husband just returned from a whistlestop tour on central Europe and spent 4 nights at the Burg hotel. We got the room on sale(59 euros I think) and it was great value for that price though I might not have been so happy paying more. The hotel itself is very clean and the staff were really nice...willing to help with purchasing the buda card(would recommend the 4/7day metrocard instead though). and booking our taxi to get us to the airport for 4am. The taxi seemed more to be a son or brother of the hotel staff...but who cares as he got us there in one piece and didn't rip us off !!!
I stayed in this hotel a couple of weeks ago and to be quite honest I can't really see why people are so excited about this hotel. Apart from its location it's nothing fancy at all. The man in the reception on the night shift when I arrived was not very friendly at all and didn't have a very welcoming attitude. The walls are very thin so I spent an HOUR!! listening to a couple having sex very loudly at 2 o'clock in the morning. Not very pleasant at all. when I arrived back to hotel at 1 o'clock in the night I found the front glass doors locked by a metal chain and no bell to ring. After a few bangs on the door a sleepy man came and let me in, giving me the feeling of intruding.
We just spent close to a week at the Burg Hotel and really enjoyed our time in our clean spacious room with a view of the church right out our window. We were there in February and paid the equivilant of 59 euros a night with breakfast. This hotel was great, and I would recommend it, but be aware of what you are getting into: most of the 'action' goes on in Pest as far as restos and bars go. This hotel is situated on top of Castle Hill, which is charming and all, but when it is negative 7 and snowing, you will wish you didn't have to take a bus and a metro to get into the thick of things. Granted, there are a few cute places in the Castle District but you will probably want to get out and see more than just that. Be sure to bring your bathing suite and go to the baths, especially the Szechenyi Bath, a Budapest trip is not complete without taking the waters, and it is so cheap you've gotta do it.
We liked this hotel a lot
We liked this hotel a lot. It is fairly basic but very comfortable and very clean. It is right in the centre of the old town and there are some funky bars and nice restaurants near by. We had a room at the front of the hotel and while we didn't notice the noise from the tour buses, we were sometimes woken by other guests climbing the stairs between floors.
All in all, a really nice hotel and very friendly staff (who all speak English). Would definitely definitely stay there again.
This is a good value small hotel on the main square in the old town,with good views over to the church and fishermans bastion.the rooms are clean and comfortable,mini bar but no tea/coffee makeing facs.
the breakfasts were very good with a nice choice and the staff freindly and helpfull.thereis a little mini bus which connects with the trams/metro
which stops outside the hotel. only 1 problem is that in the old town there only 8 resturants(most expensive) for your eveing meal for more choices at better prices you must be prpeared to travel in to pest side of town.
We always stay here
My boyfriend and I travel to Budapest at least once a year since he has family in the wine country. we have stayed at The Burg 5 or 6 times since it was built and each time was wonderful. The views from the rooms are all fantastic. The service is excellent. the front desk clerk speaks English and the breakfasts are lovely. The location cannot be beat but mostly the views are why we stay here. in February we watched the snowfall all night outside our window.
This nice little hotel turned out to be an excellent choice for our weekend trip to Budapest. Friendly service, relatively large rooms with good air condition, and you can't beat the location and the view. The hotel is directly on the central square on castle hill and the rooms have a magnificent view of St. Michaels church and the square. All of that for the price of 68 Euro!
I would definitely stay there again.
A good value for the money, this is a small, basic, clean place.
On the plus side, it's directly next to St. Michael's church and the Fishermen's bastion, very well located for some tourist walking.
On the minus side, it's so close to the church that the bells woke us up every day (not to mention the tour buses).
So, so long as you don't mind street noise, it's a very good choice.
