Ice Train to Budapest

The driver picked us up nice and early....NYC cabby driving skills, and then dropped us at the wrong end of the train station. But no problem as we walked to the other end into the station part for pastry breakfasts. On the train, they had the beverage and snack cart again (like on planes). When we arrived in Budapest the driver was not to be seen …

And here you are Budapest

... like i was walking into a disney movie. This was followed by more wondering around the city and walking through the park at the top of the city (well I guess depending on what way you hold the map!).
My third day in Budapest was spent on a walking tour getting to know more about the city, however, the guide lacked confidence and spoke very quietly so I missed most of what the guide was saving.
The afternoon was spent exploring more of buda with a fellow Australian ...

Viszontlátásra!

... eating my own words. a 6 hour train journey faces me, and the chaos that was present on the flight will probably be caused by me if I can't find some English somewhere. I intend to go to Zagreb, but who knows where I might end up... now it would be wrong to leave Hungary, or any country for that matter, without speaking a word of the local language, so until next time viszontlátásra! (and now you know why I haven't tried to learn ...

Bottling Budapest

... one year old radio presenter who insisted I come out looking for girls with him. Despite dozens of polite refusals, his poor english meant that he couldn't quite figure out that I was more interested in walking around the city at night than chasing tail. If he'd been less hellbent on having sex I might have been inclined to go out and have a few beers with him, but he just seemed like the type of guy who would clutch asses without consent and drool absently at anything ...

... train and sat down at one of the seats. I was kicked out by a lady that said that our car wasnt going to go to Budapest. So I went to the next car and it was completely full, went to the next and that too was completely full, I rushed to the first car and found a spot. I grabbed it quickly and was so lucky to find it. There were 3 Americans and one Vancouver girl there.

Side note: I went to the bathroom later and their were people in ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Budapest Buda

    Mercure Buda Excellent Value

    from

    I thought this hotel was excellent. Like the previous reviewer I was on the 8th floor and found the room spot on. The hotel is ideally located for sightseeing and socialising. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the breakfast plentiful and varied. We paid 37 per night for a double room with breakfast which we thought was outstanding considering we paid 70 for a night at what can only be described as fawlty towers in the shape of the Britainnia Airport hotel at Newcastle Airport. A flashback to the mid 70's.

    Fully satisfied!

    from

    We stayed there for two nights on Christmas holidays of 2004. Location was very convenient - 3-5 minutes to metro station and walking distance to key sightseeing spots in buda area such as palace, cathedral and old villages.

    Good value, well placed

    from

    We booked this hotel through a low cost airline's affiliated travel company so we were expecting budget accommodation. But for the price we got a very comfortable room which was very clean and exceeded our expectations in terms of facilities. It has a swimming pool, sauna & jacuzzi & the bedrooms have a hairdryer and a minibar but no tea and coffee making facilities or iron/board.

    The staff were generally very friendly although the restaurant staff were a little reserved. The hot buffet breakfast was excellent the only criticism being that the tea was a little cold both mornings. The hotel is excellently placed for the metro which is 5 minutes walk. We thought that this hotel was really great value and would use it again.

    Mercure buda

    from

    I stayed here and found it very good. Location just minutes from Castle Hill and close by tram or metro to everything of interest. Literally a two minute walk to the red line at Deli pu. Breakfast superb, rooms great and warm and clean, pool lovely, staff friendly and helpful, prices excellent. I would recommend it to anyone!! Great value too!

    Disappointment

    from

    I agree with emiller444. This hotel is a disappointment. The room wasn't clean and has an old aspect. The hotel is far of the center. I will never return there again.

    Not so enthusiastic about the Mercure Buda

    from

    I was not as impressed with the Mercure Buda as the other reviewers. The hotel was a standard 4* hotel catering to tours. The food (breakfast buffet and dinner) was typical mediocre tour food. The people at the desk were not particularly helpful. I wanted information about walking tours I had found on the internet and they were only interested in selling me a particular company's bus tours. They were neither helpful or pleasant about getting information for me.

    Great hotel for the money

    from

    Very warm, clean, nicely decorated hotel with an inviting bar and very lavish breakfast spread. I thought the hotel staff was nice but clueless. This is a hotel that accommodates many large tour groups - any request we had about the noise level of the 50 teens staying on our floor went unanswered and simple questions about taxis, the bill, etc. were above their heads. English was a problem. Something else to consider is the location: it is walking distance to the castle district but it's approx 300 steps up. You need to take the subway to get to pest - only a 5 minute ride though but public transportation stops at 11 pm. If you'd rather save the money and stay a bit out of the way then this is a very good choice. BTW, we booked on octopus and got great rates.

    Enjoyed our stay!

    from

    My boyfriend and I went to Central Europe this past summer and our first stop was Budapest. We stayed at the Mercure Buda for 3 nights.

    When in Budapest, there is the Buda side(more historical, and hilly) and there is the Pest side(more of the modern part of Budapest and flat). I prefer to stay on the Buda side, and this hotel is very close to the historical centers like Castle District. It is also a 2-5 minute walk to the train station and a tram stop that takes you around the city. The transportation system here is great!! We really loved the breakfast selection, and the fruits that was served was really good!

    Beautiful city and nice hotel to stay in! Would love to visit this city again!

    Superb

    from

    My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our four night stay. There is a really buzz about the hotel. It is very central- just a few minutes stroll to the castle district. The bedrooms are very well appointed, the reception staff are very accomodating and efficient. There is a great choice of foods at breakfast and the hotel bar is open until late. The exterior of the hotel belies the warmth and quality of the interior. The only criticism we have is that we could smell an odour of cigarette smoke in our room.

    Excellent in every measure

    from
