Kuni lõunani on asjalikku asja, siis jagatakse natuke diplomeid ja kõik.
Kohaliku koja poolt on kingiks veinipudel ja hiiglasuur raamat. Ma arvan, et nad teevad seda meelega. Õnneks lubab üks kohalikest N-dest, Zsigmond, mind Budapesti kaasa võtta, seega ei pea ma selle nännikoormaga vähemalt ühistranspordiga seiklema.
Päike. Nagu Murphy …
The Buda side of the Danube has a long bike path running the entire length. I've walked it a few times but today I got to bike it with some diversions.
The path is busy with tourists, couples, and families out biking.
... it had to be rebuilt in 1949 since it was completely destroyed during the final battle between the Soviets and Nazi Army at the end of WWII. At both ends of the Chain Bridge there is a pair of lions that has very important task which is to guard the bridge as best as they can. Well, the bridge is very beautiful so we believe they´ve been doing a great job so far :)
Note: After WWII 45% of the city of Budapest was completely demolished.

After the factory I started the long walk back (The factory is well on the other side of town) and after walking for about 20 minutes I realised that I wasn't going to make it back in time for the bus. I started looking for a taxi and eventually found one who charged me 20 Zloty to get home (only about $7AUD) which I was more than happy to pay given the situation. I made it back with plenty of time to spare, so I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alfa Hotel Fiesta Budapest
Enjoyed the stay
My daughter and I had a great time in Budapest in July 2005. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. At breakfast we had a wide selection of food, a lot of fresh fruit and drinks. The coffee was very good, too. The location of the hotel is superb to enjoy Budapest day and night. We'd be glad to stay at the same hotel again.
I had booked 3 triple rooms at the hotel fiesta for a nine strong stag party.
On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who took our details and showed us how to operate the over complicated door locks.
Our rooms were all excellent, clean, tidy and nicely decorated.
The hotel its self is perfectly placed to enjoy all budapest has on offer and the price was very reasonable indeed.
Breakfast was not the best but that is the only slight floor in our stay.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Budapest and not wanting to spend a fortune on accomodation, after all there are better things to spend your holiday money on.
Recently stayed at the Fiesta and was very happy with the hotel. The location of the hotel was great - walking distance to many attractions and less than 5 minute walk from the central subway station that connects all of budapest's subway lines.
Hotel Fiesta very conveniently located
We stayed at the Hotel Fiesta in Budapest in March 2005. We found it very conveniently located. We went there to go to the opera and it is only 10 minutes walk. Also near to all communications. We had a quiet non-smoking room which we had asked for. The only negative we found was that we had a room on the top floor and it only had roof windows that could not be opened except asking the staff and no view. We were told that anyway windows cannot be opened by guests for security reasons. The room was big, nicely furnished, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great and staff friendly. We would stay there again.
My family (myself, wife and 4 yr old daughter ) stayed 3 nights in early March 2005. The room was quite large by euro standards, very new modern furniture (leather couch) and quiet. The breakfast was filling and good (I do agree about the weak juices noted in another review, though). The hotel was about as centrally located as you can get, being 100m from Deak Ter, the crossing point for all the Metro lines. We didn't have any meaningful contact with the staff , nor did we visit the bar, so I can't comment about those, but the room itself was clean and comfy. We got a great deal at 46 euro a night (winter special), but I feel its worth much more than that
We stayed at the Fiesta for a short break in Feb 05. We had spent a lot of time looking at the reviews for the NH and a couple of other hotels, but decided we really wanted something pretty central in Pest.
Good value smart hotel. Central location about 5-10mins from Vaci utca, Deak ter, Chain Bridge, Opera house, etc.
First I would like to say that I am an experienced traveller, I worked in the travel industry for 15 years as a tour guide and resort manager, so I am more than used to experiencing the many and varied hotels, food and cultures on offer throughout the world. I mention this only to stop anyone thinking that my comments are due to my not being able to understand another countries ways and habits.
very central, good value for money
We stayed here in summer 2003, and were very happy with the standard of the hotel. Our room was clean, modern, had satellite TV, and maid service was great. In the morning, breakfast was eaten in a huge arched cellar restaurant.
A longish walk to the nicer parts of Budapest (Buda, Fisherman's Bastion, Chain Bridge etc) but this isn't much of a problem. Especially if you get the metro.
