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 …
... There were also barges which were obviously the homes of the barge drivers. One we saw had two cars on the back and at the front pretty curtains on the windows suggesting that this was the home end. In the middle the business part of the rig, but what it was carrying is open to speculation.
Pedalling on such a beautiful day was easy and we stopped at a couple of points to marvel at the views – green, green fields, the river, typical ...
... hostel called "Retox". The concept is you don't detox here, but you do the opposite.
Well guess what, I slept the first night there because everyone was gone partying and I really needed some sleep. I guess I wasn't doing retox properly. But the next few days significantly changed that.
So, on Wednesday,I got up bright and early and visited the heroes square with the budapest sign full of tourists posing in it and saw a fake disney-esque ...
... so much character.
Another overcast day so its off to the Central Food Market. I walk down the pedestrian only Vaci street. The premier shopping street in Budapest. It is a very pleasant walk even if it is drizzling. The food market is one impressive building. Its not as busy as i was lead to believe, but the smells are amazing. I take lunch here and i am not disappointed with the Hungarian food.
I cross the Danube by one of the many bridges and ...
... Royal Palace, Matthias Church and various squares and old buildings. Some of the streets were having the stone blockwork relaid so I took photos and studied how it was being done in case someone wants me to design streets properly rather than using concrete block paving. The temperature began to drop as the sun went down, Hungary is one hour ahead of the UK and it was getting dark by 16:30 so I began to make my way to ...

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.
