Today we walked across the chain bridge from our hotel in Pest to Buda and went up the cliff by funicular to the castle complex (which is enormous!). Our tour guide today, as yesterday, was a lovely man who'd lived in Budapest his whole life. He told us all sorts of interesting stories about being a teenager during the bloody conflicts that …
We finally arrived in Budapest late in the day. It is a huge city of 2 million, much larger than any of the others we’ve been in. After a confusing walk through many little alleys we arrived at our hotel the Erzebet (named after Eizabeth, a former Austrian? Hungarian? queen and also the nearby bridge. The room is small with not much view. On …
Szia! (said like seeya) :-)
Wow! Very short drive up from Vienna, which was quite nice! We didn't have our usual driver Gabe, as he had to have 2days rest, so we had someone else (just quietly, Gabe's a much better driver!). We also got a sleep in! Wahoooo! So we headed off, 3hrs later we were in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia! We had 2 1/2 hrs total there, but this included Noddy doing a walking tour. Had lunch there, of which I tried a pastry thing which was ...
... Baths. We have not decided if we want to actually go to one of the baths, but we decided to stop in and have a quick look around. From the little we were able to see from the lobby it they look very nice. Across the City Park from the baths is the Vajdahunyad Castle. The castle itself now contains the Museum of Hungarian Agriculture, which we elected not to visit. We did decide to walk through the grounds and take pictures. Not far ...
... a flushed. Being a 35º day, Shannon and I were fine, well I was anyway, but this was apparently a hot day for Hungary. While it does hit these temperature every summer, it's like when we get a 45º day back home, they happen, but boy are they hot! To cool off, we headed for our final destination, the Matthias Church next the Fisherman's Bastion. Along the way our guide pointed out a statue of a guy on a horse, but no one cares about the guy. Look at this statue for a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Erzsebet City Center Budapest
This hotel was located in the centre of downtown Pest two streets away from the River Danube. The origins of the hotel dated from the 18h century and this was reflected in the decor. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the customer service was second to none.
Previous trip advisors' reviews were spot-on for this hotel... an average hotel if a little tired but the location would have been hard to beat! Budapest is a lovely city, though please be warned that the place CLOSES on a Sunday, so if you are there for the weekend, please do your shopping on the Saturday!!! The rooms are small but clean. We were located at the back so had no problems with the noise that so many other reviews mention. Staff are competent, speak good English and are pleasant although the locals as a whole are not the friendliest of people but that went for the whole city... The safety deposit box is free though it is located behind reception and requires a member of staff to be with you when going in and out, great for security but bad for getting into and out for your currency, camera, mobile phone, so convenience wasn't so good. Breakfast was good enough, although if I'm being really fussy the range was not wide. Also the breakfast room always seemed to be busy! For a no-frills, clean hotel with a fantastic location, I'd recommend this hotel highly.
Very Nice Hotel - Very Noisy Street
This is a nice hotel with a great location. Staff was very helpful and spoke English very well. The rooms are a little small (typical for Europe) and the street very noisy all night long - keep the window closed! The Central Cafe just around the corner is a very good place to eat.
Really good location, the rooms were clean and bigger than I expected. Nice shower! Breakfast was good, and the location is fantastic. If you are going to Budapest for the spa baths then go to Szechenyi in the park. They are amazing.
Quite a big hotel, but not one of the anonymous chain types that are all over the world. It was pretty basic but clean and pefectly satisfactory for our needs. Reception staff friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English. Rooms at the front of the hotel might suffer with noise from the traffic outside, but it's smack in the centre of a big capital city so what else can you expect? Our room was not huge, but big enough, had a good, powerful shower and the air conditioning was very welcome. Breakfast was the usual continental affair with a few traditional hungarian additions.
The location of this hotel couldn't be faulted. My husband & I were able to walk everywhere like parliament, the basilica, even across to Buda. The hotel is a hundred metres from a bus stop & couple of minutes walk to a metro station for the less energetic!
It's ok, but not great
Not the greatest place, but it's OK. My friend and I were there over New Year's 2005. The rooms are clean, but nothing fancy. The lobby is very dated and seems to always be full of chain smokers. It is in a great, central location - lots of restaurants nearby. No one at the hotel was particularly helpful or friendly, but that seemed to go for most of Budapest. I'd for sure go back to Budapest, but wouldn't stay there again.
Can be NOISY at the front!!
We stayed in this hotel in October and found it clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location is first class.
We stayed in a room overlooking the street and found it very noisy (traffic) throughout the night and early morning. Best try to get a room NOT overlooking the street.
Breakfast room is very crowded even at non-peak times but the breakfast is good.
Free internet access in a little booth off reception.
Excellent location in Pest !
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Erzsebet for 5 nights in October 2004. Erzsebet is a middle class international hotel : the rooms are rather small, but very clean and equipped with comfortable beds. A good buffet breakfast is included in the rate.
The main advantage of this hotel is its excellent location on the Pest side of Budapest, very close to the Vaci Street. Shops, restaurants, metro and a lot of points of interest are within a walking distance from the hotel. Just round the corner, don't miss 2 very good restaurants : "Central" and "Karpatia" !
Great location average hotel
Perfectly adequate hotel, very good central location, fair buffet breakfast and helpful staff and rooms clean and spacious. the only problem was that the beerkeller advertised in the brochures was closed (july 2004) which was the main reason we booked to stay here. There is another bar but it was very small and closed very early.
