We were still a little jet lagged when we woke up, but went out to explore some of the Pest side of Budapest.
We walked to the Danube River and looked along the Chain Bridge to the Buda side. Then walked along the river for a while. Which really isn’t blue, ha, ha!
We visited the Holocaust Memorial of the 52 pairs of brass shoes. …
... hotel through the Jewish Quarter, past the Rumbach Street Synagogue to Printa Café, which was recommended to us by someone else. It is across from the ruins of another synagogue. We stopped at Printa for croissants and a latte for breakfast. It was very cute, with lots of trendy art for sale on display.
We then walked to Jozef Nade ter, where we started the bus tour. The tour took us, rather quickly and with frantic violin music playing in the background ...
... experiencing growing pains as it was coming into its own late 20th Century economic stability. There was still a sense of resilience yet with a down-trodden national morale. Having Western tourists grace its city streets was still a novelty, and mostly an unknown inconvenience to the people. While there were many young people there (then), the social night life seemed to still be hushed and underground, and based primarily on the intellectual conversation found at late-night ...
... of the things I find more difficult than with my BlackBerry and b) a significant fraction of the places we’ve visiting along the way don’t have easy to find and enlightening web resources available.
Anyway, today started out as most of the mornings have started, i.e., somewhat leisurely. We’d be up by 08:00 or so, have a communal breakfast, clean up (ourselves and the apartment), make plans for the day, and get going ...
As my travels carry me further east, the countries from here on (and as I go north) are probably less visited by most people I know. Having thus far spent a few hours here, have generally gotten a good vibe about Budapest. The city center is quite beautiful with its old buildings, similar to Vienna's but the facades are darker in color. Some places, seem to accept both forints and euros. I walked around a pedestrian area ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Starlight Suiten Hotel Budapest
The perfect hotel
Everything about this hotel was brilliant.
The suites were amazing; two large rooms with comfortable furniture and a TV in each room, plus a good bathroom.
The staff were particularly friendly and helpful, in addition to speaking fluent English and German.
We enjoyed very good breakfasts with a large choice of cold foods plus bacon, egg and sausage, served from 6 to 11.
(We did not use the other facilities).
Finally the location could not be better for visiting all the tourist attractions.
What a great find!
I got a really good deal on a short stay at the Starlight Suiten, and was completely delighted by my visit. The location is amazing, just round the corner from the (much dearer) Gresham Palace Hotel and the Chain Bridge. The suite was lovely and airy - with all new furnishings. I was there on business so the desk setup with wireless connectivity was great. The staff were really good - very friendly and helpful. I left very early in the morning - before the normal breakfast time - but was still asked if I wanted a coffee. I will definitely choose Starlight again when I come back for a holiday trip, and have already recommended it to my friends.
Friendly, friendly ,friendly and friendly
Friendly staff at a friendly hotel with friendly rooms
at a friendly location
In a very friendly town
Starlight Suiten is a mega-star hotel!
We got a great rate through a travel website and weren't sure what to expect as the photos of rooms are a bit odd-strange angles so we thought they may have been a bit too clever!
The rooms are way the biggest we have experienced before in Budapest(after numerous visits) and very comfortably furnished.The bed is very comfy!
The staff could not have been more helpful, always smiling and very good english.
The steam, sauna and gym were very clean and very enjoyable.
Breakfast was delicious and constantly refreshed.
Location was perfect for walking to any major tourist sight and shopping.
Overall we are now great fans and will return soon.
Good location, big room
The location of this hotel was great-literally right next to the Four Seasons Hotel-just around the corner. It is only 200 meters from the Chain Bridge and the Danube.
The staff were helpful and friendly. Gergo was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was well taken care of and large. It has a microwave so you can heat up water for a tea. Two televisions are nice but only BBC for English speaking channel.
The Pay-per-view movie was an outrageous nearly 14 Euro rental fee! The breakfast was fine. Nothing spectacular.
The housekeeper on my floor was very nice and helpful-always with a smile.
There were excellent restaurants and cafes in the area-within the same block- and it was close to the main shopping street.
St. Stephen's Basilica was just a couple of blocks away-great concerts in the piazza there.
For the price, size of the room, and location-it was an excellent deal!
Central Location, friendly staff
Stayed here in March 2005, great base to explore Budapest. Excellent suites with large living room complete with mini bar, sofa, bureau etc.
Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was better than expected.
Nice relaxed atmosphere.. don't hesitate to book if you get a good deal.
Some good restaurants nearby.
Just back from a great 4 day break in Budapest. Hotel was lovely and staff very efficient and friendly. Great location to main attractions. Would recommend the Shakespeare Restaurant for a meal. Food,ambience and staff excellent. Will be back next year!
Very clean hotel, People very friendly and helpful. Food araouond and about OK. Really enjoyed our stay excellent value for money. One of the best I have stayed in Europe. Already friends of ours booked.
Fantastic and convenient place to stay
We stayed here in May 2004 and found the staff increbly helpful and friendly. The room was big, with a good bathroom and the convenience of having a separate loung and bedroom was excellent for a non-smoker living with a smoker. The room was at the back and very quiet. Breakfast was filling, but nothing very special. The hotel is located very close to the Chain Bridge leading to the Castle and the old part of town, close to the shopping centre, and within 10 minutes walk of the major restaurant area (although there are also plenty of good restaurants within a few minutes walk) so we found it central to all our needs. The helpfulness and hospitality of the staff on the front desk cannot be stressed enough - they were a huge help and only laughed a little at our feeble attempts at their language! We return to Budapest in January and have already booked - we don't want to miss out.
