TravelPod Member ReviewsMercure Budapest Duna
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

... Margrit Island. We brought some provisions for a picnic lunch on the island and spent a lovely hour taking in the lovely surrounds of the park looking over the Danube and the buildings of Pest. It was the a trolley ride and another walk back to Body House where we relaxed a little before catching our taxi to the airport. Next stop ...
... knew a fair bit about WWII. I had to give her a crash course in it then and the museum in addition to the info we were getting loaded up with... It was hard work! I am yet to read it all properly and know what I'm going in about.... But I will say Hungary is an extremely interesting country to find out more about. By the time we got out of the house of terrors - complete with the most inhumane gallows I've ever heard of - we realised our bodies were desperate for ...
... passing the first McDonalds in the Soviet bloc. It had been a genuine tourist attraction for people in surrounding countries as well as Hungarians. They did find, however, that the burger they received did not really look like the picture. McDonalds are everywhere in Central Europe now and packed. The River Cruise at night was spectacular. Buildings were lit up and interiors were shown on a screen inside the ...
