Mercure Budapest Duna

The coach journey to Hungary was pretty uneventful – there were actually people at border control this time although they didn't say anything about lack of visa for Slovakia. Fiona and pretty much everyone else on the coach fell asleep except me, I ended up chatting with Chris and Emma which was nice :) We got to Budapest but I can't remember …
So after napping it out on the bus for another couple of hours, I got awoken by being told we would soon be arriving in Budapest and we would be dropped off in the city to chill out for a few hours before the bus would be going back to the hotel.. I really picked the worst bus day to be sleepy!!
Anyway I picked my feet up and jumped off …
... relocated here. However they are rather spread out and don't have the impact I thought they would. There are a couple of hero photos and one or two of the National Museum because I like the building. The other buildings await a ruin bar which isn't as bad as it sounds as it frequently means the saving of the place. The buildings are magnificent, well at least their facades are and it is sad ...
We left Lviv by train heading to Budapest. Ivan was devastated that he didn't get his Mila Ménage in G-viv, but he was happy nonetheless. This time the train was very run down, the cabins only slept three with very little room besides and there was no aircon. It made the Russian trains seem like s five star hotel.

... by as they shopped the duty free items in the airport. Shortly thereafter, our gate number appeared and we made to gate 23a in plenty of time. I got to ride a bus out to the plane and walk up the stairs on wheels (I have always wanted to do that). Once again, I lucked out on seats and had an empty one next to me, and I was by the window.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
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
