After our trip around yesterday we decided what we wanted to see today. After breakfast, we walked down to the indoor market. It was very big. The veggies were interesting. Some were nice and some not so good. The meat was kept in containers that didn't seem to be refrigerated. It looked very dodgey. Before this we went into a very ordinary looking …

... sparty (big party in a thermal spa). Upon our arrival we were greeted by a big queue, headed by a glorious old man, I would come to know as "Big John". And considering I didn't meet a "little john" I assume the big part of his name comes because of his personality and strength of character. Not in reference to another friend or family member. Big John, as it turns out is 68, Irish, he has beaten cancer twice and is cool enough to be partying it up at ...

Tonight we taught another yoga class at Istvan's studio. Again the class was full to capacity with a wonderful group of students. Istvan is a very kind, gentle soul & it's obvious he works hard to cultivate a positive community of ...

Our first stop was one of their sister hostels called Retox. Retox is a proper party hostel with a huge courtyard and bar. We sat and drank for about an hour or so while I got to know everyone. Tegan, my friend from Krakow, had traveled to Berlin and ...

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
