Today we set off early and caught the hop on Hop off tourist bus - it took 2 hours to do the full round - it …

... without a seat, and i mean A LOT of people.

We all talked for a long time, rested for a little while and then we arrived in Budapest. The train stopped almost every 10 minutes, no one really knows why, but it did. Once we arrived, I started walking, I didnt even have a detailed map, I just walked. I went about 1K in the wrong direction and had to back track. Then I got the wrong direction and went another Kilo in the wrong ...

... teaching hosptital, and many smaller speciality clinics. Hungary has a very different healthcare system than we have in America (it's truly a socialist healthcare system with no private insurance and they have these so called "specialty clinics"). These clinics are interesting because they are focused into one area, for example this on was cardiology so the focus is on the heart and the ...

    ... the wine in the old days. We ate at a place called Fanny?? (jokes aplenty ;)) before taking our bus back to Budapest. That night we cooked our hosts some burgers Kiwi-style which I don’t think they’ll forget for a while ;)

    Our last night was spent back at a hostel and we checked out the Parliament and the Sziget island where a big music festival is held each year (black seeds are going this year!).

    After our 8 days in Budapest we boarded ...

      Mercure is situated on Dorottya pedestrian mall - so central to everything. Mercure is a little dated however clean and tidy with an excellent breakfast

      Bliss In Budapest for the lads (& girkls)

      Just got back after a 3 night stay with 6 friends on a 40th. (Mar 17th-20th 2005)

      Last Minute Bargain

      from

      We arrived in Budapest via the Danube hydrofoil on a cold wet day in May, 2004. Unable to get reservations stateside (we did not realize it was a holiday weekend, so most shops were closed and everyone was traveling (to Budapest!). We flung outselves on the mercy of the tourist bureau, and they put us here are a very nice rate. The location is incredible on Vaci street, and thankfully the folkloric shops were open. The location is very convenient to the underground so we went to Buda (check out the Labyrinth), walked to church, and metro'd to to a modern shopping center and the beautifully restored wrought iron Market Hall. The basement restaurant was good, and the gypsy musicians were remarkable. The daily breakfast buffet is amazing in scope, and much of it is fresh. Other good restaurants are nearby; we had quite the gala dinner at Karpathia. We would definitely stay here again.

      Great value hotel in city centre

      from

      Just returned from a two night stay in this hotel. Superb central location in the middle of the city`s pedestrianised main shopping street with Metro station less than 100 metres away. Excellent comprehensive buffet breakfast. Tour office at main hotel entrance providing tickets for tours, theatres etc. First class restaurant, brasserie and cafe in hotel. Standard bedroom small but adequate Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended for short city break.

      Very central

      from

      Four of us stayed at the Taverna, in Pest, in early December. We were very well placed for shopping and sightseeing. Close to the Bridges and other city sights. Take a walk over one of the bridges and up to the Fishermans Bastion via the cliff railway. The views are stunning, particularly at night when the Pest side is lit up. The hotel itself was fine - the rooms are kind of what you would expect in a large hotel - nice and clean with small clean shower rooms. There is a travel booking office at the front door to the hotel and in December there is the most fabulous Christmas market about half a minute's walk from the front door where you can buy your Christmas decorations, hats, gloves, jewellery, etc, all whilst you sip your hot mulled wine and eat the local delicacies which are on offer from very clean and professional looking stalls. Only word of warning - don't expect drink in central bars and restaurants to be particularly cheap - it's not. Nip down a side street or two and it's a bit better - more like home prices. Don't forget you are in a big city and you will be paying city prices and service charges are added on to almost everything. Don't let this deter you though - it's lovely.

      Great Location, great value

      from

      Just returned from Budapest staying at the Taverna in Vacci Ucta for 3 nights. The hotel has a great location on the main pedestrian street and the standard of accommodation was very good. Good sized, clean, warm rooms with very helpful staff from reception to house mother. Enormous breakfast in lovely position overlooking main street. Close to Metro station and Gerbault cafe. Rate board indicated 170 Euros a nt for double - we paid 35 b&b, amazing value!

      Ideal Location

      from

      We stayed for 3 nights in a VERY cold February. The hotel was in an ideal location, situated in Pest, no more than 500 metres from the Danube. The central location meant that we missed nothing. The staff were always friendly, and the hotel always warm, which was a feat in itself!!

      As regards Budapest itself, we found it rather quiet. If you are looking for a cultural experience, full of museums, architecture and churches then Budapest is for you.

      Taverna Hotel ok...

      from

      We have just returned from a three night stay at the Taverna Hotel in Budapest. The hotel location is excellent, right in the middle of one of the main shopping areas, and within easy walking distance of many of the wonderful sites Budapest has to offer.

      Very nice hotel

      from

      We, 4 friends, spent recently 4 nights at this hotel.

      The rooms are niceand clean, the staff very friendly and the location perfect. I also have to tell about the delicious breakfast. Some day we'll hope to come back to Taverna and the beautiful Budapest.

      Taverna - A great choice

      from

      We spent 3 nights recently at the Taverna and had a very good experience. We chose it for the location - which is indeed excellent - but were pleased with just about everything. It is a great value for the money.

      Plus: location, price, service, breakfast

      Minus: Rooms and bathrooms a bit small (though certainly not a "deal-breaker")

      Great Central Location

      from

      This hotel is in a great location for walking around the city and getting to the Metro stations.

      The rooms are small with possibly the smallest bathroom I have ever seen with just a shower not a bath. However, they were very clean. The room had a minibar but no room service and no tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast was reasonable but very busy. I would recommend staying here for the price and location but would probably stay at the Inter-Continental if I had the spare cash.
