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.

So, as it turns out Budapest was once Buda...up on the hill and Pest....down on the flats...separated by the Duna (Danube in English)....which I'm sure a lot of you knew, but this wee las didn't. We arrived into Budapest at the cities main and oldest train station. The station is grand to say the least and its tracks lead all over the west and east of Europe. After our final currency exchange...the Hungarian Forint, we headed down to the trams and across town. Our hotel lay neatly ...
... had a goose leg with red cabbage and potato onion hash. For desert we shared a chestnut rum purée with cherries and whipped cream. That filled us up so much we needed to keep walking after we reached our hotel. We strolled along the Corso, which is the Danube waterfront boulevard and then back along the pedestrian shopping street which was still busy with restaurants and souvenir buyers. Back at the hotel we started the repacking ...
... July 2014 rolls round and now I am officially 27! Robbie and I went on a hunt for a biking tour of the city - unfortunately didn't find one so we went on a free walking tour instead which was still great, we saw parts of the city we would have not seen and found out weird facts like hungry in invented sparkling water, the rubicks cube and more! We then climbed to the highest point in the city where a liberty statue was and man was that some work, we were just drenched in ...
... cruise down Danube River which offers a different viewing perspective of the capital city, in fact on both sides of the river there are plenty of architecture to marvel at. The scene is further enhanced by the city lights in the dark. It is definitely a unique experience to cruise down the famous Danube river, one of Europe's longest rivers which runs through nine countries in total.
... br> After checking into our hostel and dropping off our luggage, we wandered around a little bit passing through a large street market on our way to the house of terror. Going into this building we knew we were about to experience something saddening. Everything looked grim but also really interesting. We learned a lot about how Nazis effected Budapest and about the communist take over once the Nazis left. It was interesting to learn ...
