Well...where to start with Budapest. We have had major discussions as to if it's prettier than Prague. Final decision is that there are allowed to be multiple pretty places out there!
Yesterday we started off with a tour of the Hungarian Parliament. One of the most impressive buildings I have ever seen. Ceilings and statues and stairwells …
... on the walking tour before we headed to the house of terror, a museum in a building used for holding and torturing Germans and others during WWII and communism. The museum was actually rather interesting and well set out for non-hungarian speakers. The last part of the museum was in the cellers where the torture a tally took place and we're prisoners were held. There was a very uneasy creepy feeling in the cellers and i walked rather quickly through the part!

Sunday 6th April - this morning we spent packing up our belongings. Rovi cooked us an amazing breakfast and made us a packed lunch for our bus trip. Rovi and Cata dropped us off at the bus station where we said our goodbyes. It was such an amazing week! Our bus trip took 6hrs with some crazy driving included and a boarder crossing. When we arrived in Budapest we had to change some money before we could get on the metro into the centre, with a short walk to the hostel. When ...
... even remotely good looking. He was completely repulsive. Later that evening he came stumbling back into the hostel room after having tried to go solo. Mercifully he was alone, Cupid's arrow having thankfully missed its mark, and probably by a wide margin too.

This hotel was nice enough interms of the rooms and facilities, however we found the staff to be rather rude.
I understand that we were a rather large group of under 35's... but they should have predicted that we would probably end up wanting a drink or 2 at the hotel bar at night and prepared themselves possibly with an additional staff member?
We waited up to 25minutes to be served at times because the man at the front desk was "busy doing other stuff"... he then was rude when he took our orders.
So, yeah, not impressed with service, but the hotel itself was nice enough
