Stayed here in Mid-November. Hotel was wonderfully located near the City Centre. It was only a short walk to most of the tourist attractions.
For the most part staff was very courteous with some exception. When we checked in the woman at the front desk was wonderful about quickly changing our rooms because we didn't want to be on the main road side of the hotel due to some noise. We were put into a room which we found out later that the heat only went on and could not be turned down. This meant that the room went up to 25C at one point. The reception staff we called told us just to open the window. Quick fix yes, but not the best alternative.
Breakfast was up and down. First day was bacon and eggs with cereal, breads, and fruit. Next day eggs with mushrooms and half the breads were gone with no fruit. Last day there the coffee machine died. So all in all ups and downs. Was nice to have a relatively cheap place to eat right in the hotel.
Shower had great temp and water pressure though if you have any issues raising your leg above about 2 feet you might have a bit of trouble getting into the shower.
All in all pretty good overall.

... down the hill and walk across the Chain Bridge before the heat kicked in. I checked with reception about Danube View Rooms and they advised me that there was one on the 6th floor available for the rest of my stay. It's an extra 30 Euro a night but I may never visit Budapest again so what the hell! I also had the concierge book me onto a 3 hour guided city tour for 6,500 Forints which starts at 10am.
It was still only 7.30 when I left the Hilton and the streets were quiet ...
Having not learnt our lesson from the previous day, we set out regardless into the heat once again, at a slower pace however than our usual pound the streets style sightseeing. Our morning was spent in the welcome cool of the Central Market, a huge indoor bazaar selling every food stuff and Hungarian souvenir anyone could possibly want. Muggins here was on the hunt for a small canvas bag as a welcome alternative from lugging around a rucksack every day which ...
... give me some idea of what was going on. So, I had a pretty sore neck by the end of the three hour performance! But I got to catch up with Annyce a bit during the two intermissions and share school experiences. We met up with two of the Fulbright students after the performance (ironically, they bought better seats than the two adults did!) and Caitlin joined is for a drink and a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. Great to just ...
... We walked around for about two hours crossing different bridges and exploring the city. We ended up at a small cafe along the river side. As we were enjoying our hot drinks to warm us up after a chilly walk Bruno Mars began to come on over the sound system. It there is one thing my exchange friends like, it is singing. As soon as the first word was sung the entire group of us were singing along to Bruno Mars for the next hour! It was ...
... kept to the front of the pack along with another couple that were similar in age to us who were also really friendly as lot of the Irish teenagers in the group couldn’t ride bikes properly and kept getting in the way.
After the bike tour ended, we stopped for a beer at a bar by the river and then went for a stroll and found a stall that sold Lángos, a Hungarian food specialty which my Hungarian friend Sarah told me I must try and Oh my, so delicious! (but also ...
