... from the hotel down to the Danube for an up close view of the Chain Bridge and the Shoe Memorial. It honors the Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during WWII. They were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot by a firing squad at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river. The memorial represents the shoes left behind on the bank--more examples of people's inhumanity.
... It started with a quick training sesh, Petes face was a picture before he got on the machine! Training went well and we mastered forwards, backwards, up and down pavements and 360 degree circles! We were ready to head to a public area! Gulp! We were then given our own Seg, each with a different name. I had Andi, Shona had Anita and Pete had Mario.

Of course the stores were not the same, even the material of the clothing was not the best, but the fact we were in a mall, none the less, filled with Christmas decorations, made it feel like we were home.

We only stayed one night in Ulcinj, but in the morning we had plenty of time to explore before our bus left for Budva. We headed up to the old town which overlooked the entire city and the beach. It had castle walls and a fortress. There was also a museum of a guy who was the first person ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Leo Panzio Hotel Budapest
Loved Leo Panzio!!
We loved Leo Panzio! Very clean, helpful friendly staff, great location! Can't complain about it at all!
A great budget hotel in a great central location
Having stayed there twice, I can confirm that some rooms are smaller that others, but the cleanliness and helpful service makes up for this. Not surprisingly, the breakfast room and its variety was small but very adequate.
While this hotel is right in the center of town above one of the main metro stations, it is also within walking distance of the Danube and many sights. Even though this is on a busy street, the double glazed windows and air conditioned rooms leave you with a quiet night's sleep.
I can highly recommended this clean, comfortable, basic hotel.
Comfortable, modern and well located
The Leo Panzio provided a wonderful refuge from the hot weather. It's not much to look at from the outside, but the room
was perfect and the price was excellent (89 Euro). The A/C was delightful, the decor was warm and modern, and the beds were probably the most comfortable we slept in during our entire trip. The staff was helpful and after checking out we were able to store our bags there for the day since our train didn't leave until later in the evening. I recommend the Leo Panzio without hesitation!
We stayed at Leo Panzio three nights. We loved the friendly staff, the old elevator, the courtyard and the location. The room was lovely, though small, with a balcony and beautiful view. A double room was only 89 Euro/night, with breakfast and tax, booking through the hotel's e-mail. The rooms are air conditioned and have a tv and mini-bar. We would definitely stay there again!
Nice hotel and great price/location
We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel in a great location and high quality rooms. Served continental breakfast which was included. Best hotel on our whole 3 week trip of Europe. The hotel is well signed so it was easy to get in the entrance, but did take some trial and error once we entered the courtyard and took the right elevator. All the comforts of a hotel chain on the inside but in a great location! Definately would stay again.
Clean and friendly in a good location
We spent one night here and found it a very good place to stay. We stayed in room 10, which had good views of the city's lovely architecture and toward the Danube. The room was spacious enough for our needs, and the high ceilings create a very nice atmosphere. The bed was extremely comfortable - the best of my whole trip (which included 5 different hotels). The young staff were friendly. The breakfast was adequate. The location is very good.
Mixed results for me
My experience of the small hotel Leo Panzio was a mix of good and not so good.
GOOD: superb location, clean, low price, breakfast acceptable but not hot food, friendly young staff, good old lift.
BAD: the rooms have very small floor space and mind the step (but the highest ceilings I have ever seen.) You don't have a key to the front door, you have to buzz entrance outside to get in each time. I arrived at 9p.m, no answer for 10 mins. Stood around with my bags. This was probably just bad luck as someone was usually on reception 24 hrs a day. Ask for a room away from reception as the entry phone there being buzzed at all hours can be heard from inside the rooms. Rooms 10,11,12 quietest. 12 is the best. At the low price you get 20 yr olds staying at the hotel who come in at 0200hrs. Also walls between rooms not thick. Rooms poorly lit. On my last day I asked for a wake up call. i didn't get it but had already been woken by other guests so got my flight! Reading the other reviews, perhaps I just had a little bad luck and i am too fussy about noise as am a light sleeper, so over all i give this hotel the thumbs up.
Small but clean and modern
This place was great. The small size of the room was definitely outweighed by its convenient location (right over the ferenciek ter subway station), helpful staff who spoke good english, stylish furnishings, and overall cleanliness.
Building looks old from the outside. But the metro is directly in front of the building. Very convenient! Once you get inside, everything is modern and clean. The staffs as well as the people of Budapest are very friendly and charming.
Leo Panzio, Central Pest
The Leo Panzio is a great choice for travellers looking for a clean, comfortable stay in central Pest at a reasonable price. Situated near the Elizabeth bridge and Pest's main commercial shopping centre, the hotel is in easy reach of the river and the main attractions that Budapest has to offer. To get to places further a field, there is a metro station one minute's walk from the hotel's front door and tram number 2 from across the road runs alongside the length of the Danube.
Although the hotel looks initially daunting from the outside, situated on the second floor of a gothic apartment block used by businesses and private residents, once inside, the decor is bright and cheerful. The rooms are a good size, they are clean and have good facilities, including colour television, minibar, air-conditioning and ensuit bathrooms with shower and hairdryers.
The continental breakfast of cereal, bread, meats, cheese, fruit and yoghurt sets you up for the day and the staff are friendly and do all they can to ensure their guests have a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
