... the poster anyway!! I got several other photos very quickly hence their poor quality. The paintings spread from late Renaissance to Baroque, the nineteenth century, pre 1945 and post 1945. We were knackered after looking at several floors of art work, mostly by Hungarian artists whom we've never heard of like Borsos, Barabas, Zichy, Derkovits, Rippl-Ronai etc But there was some good stuff in there, like the two photos I took, only forgot to get ...
... and get in for dinner. They claimed that it was cheaper to eat out than in and so it was. The restaurant was beautifully appointed, white damask tablecloths and an interesting menu. Food and wine were fantastic and cheap and atmosphere lovely.
Yesterday we opted for a hop on hop off bus tour as the weather was pretty dreadful and this gave us a terrific overview of the city on both sides of the river and also ideas for places which we want to return to. ...
... Our guide from the Segway tour had said that older people can get a prescription from the doctor to go to the baths as they supposedly were good for healing ailments......I think our doctors should start prescribing this! We had heard of a pub that was built in a ruin, so our mission that night was to find it and get some night snaps of the city. And I'm glad we found the pub as it was such a bizarre place! Not only was it wax built in a ruin but they had decorated it with old ...
... crossing. The Croatian guards looked at our passports and waved us through (no stamp this time), then about 10m further on, the Hungarian guards waved us to a stop. Looked through out passport, then waved us through (a new stamp in the passport this time). Very little fuss. One thing we did make sure of this time was to check on the requirements of driving in Hungary: didn't want the same trouble ...
... although very busy. We also forgot to bring our flip flops so (especially for Leah) that was kinda gross. The place is (obviously) very old too, but they keep it in decent shape. The baths were lovely, but some a bit dirty (but heck, with that many people floating around in the it's ***********trol). In the basement of the bath we found a Sauna ranging from 70-100 C and went in for a stint. After Clayton was keen to cool off and found a giant ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Hungaria Budapest
Worth the money
On the positive side the Hotel was clean, conveniently located to public transport and the rooms were a fair size. On the negative side the staff were cold and unhelpfull, the food was awfull and the area noisy and a bit seedy. However for the price I paid it was good value.
A great stay
After reading mixed reviews I was a little wary of my forthcoming stay, I need not have worried A large clean on-suite room Double bed (single quilt a bit odd but adequate for a single guy) The restaurant was totaly self serve and plenty of good food available for breakfast and the lobby bar reasonable and again friendly. Yes the hotel was out of the centre but with a Budapest card ( 16 for three days did it not matter that a short walk to the left for a metro, or a little bit further to the right for the tram stop. Budapest is a great friendly place and after two short trips I can hardly wait for my next stay in March, In a different hotel due to a good deal I found on the web. Please find out for yourselves and do not worry what other people think it is your holiday enjoy.
Stayed here in Jan 2005. Was a bit wary after reading some of the reviews, but had an open mind. Was impressed on entering the hotel. Corteous greeting and helpful. Room was fine and clean. Giant bed. Sheets changed daily. Reception and concierge were very helpful with directions etc and anything we required. ordered more pillows and they were there in 10 mins. Do people expect too much. I could not fault the hotel.
We returned on the 9th jan from this hotel. We had a great time there, it was very clean, you got a good choice of food at breakfast, and we found the staff to be friendly and helpful, we will be returning again in the near future.
We had mixed feelings about staying here because of the poor reviews, but we struggled finding accommodation in Budapest at New Year, so went ahead and booked it anyway. It was a pleasant surprise to find courteous staff, swift check-in and a perfectly nice, clean, comfortable room with fridge and tv. The price was extremely reasonable, too. We paid $352 US for 3 of us for 4 nights. The breakfasts were excellent, with a huge choice of hot and cold dishes.
Just got back
Have just got back from spending four nights at the Grand Hungarian and have really enjoyed it. The Hotel is located near to the Eastern railway station which provides excellent public transport to anywhere in the city. The rooms were warm and clean with a maid service every day. The only down side was that there is no tea/coffee facilities provided. Breakfast was included in the package and was varied and of a high standard. here is traffic noise if you are located at the front of the hotel, but I am sure they would move you to a quiter one if requested.
This hotel is really Terrible
This hotel smells of decaying bodies. The interior and exterior are really out of date and well worn. There were cigarette holes and marks on the carpet in a non smoking room. Staff do not smile and are very cold. Food was aweful. The bar had lot of drunken yobs at the bar. This hotel is used for stag and hen parties too! They cant cook a decent breakfast. They gave me and my wife a twin-room instead of a double. There is a busy highway near by and also this is far from the city centre will cost you alot in cab fares. I went for a massage and the bench collapsed whilst I was lying on it having a massage. This one really BAD hotel!
Too far from the action
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in August 2004. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was acceptable but cold. Although we enjoyed our stay, the location is not convenient for most of Budapest's sights. We took so many cabs that we should have just stayed at a higher priced, better located hotel.
Great hotel shame about the location
We had a lovely suite in the hotel and the staff were helpful and friendly, it is on a busy junction where traffic roafrs past day and night. Close to public transport and the railway station
