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

... we returned for afternoon tea and a drink on the boat. I watched a folk dancing exhibition with a 5 piece band, four dancers, and three singers, it was great and very professional, but I did get roped into dancing! That was fun. We had an excellent dinner for our last meal followed by an evening cruise on the Danube. This was another must see, truly spectacularly beautiful, when you see all the lights on. A good way to end the ...
... the quieter side at night, and I spent half an hour walking from the riverside to the top of the hill which had the Fisherman's Bastion and the Mattias Cathedral.

At the top, I was able to see the whole of "Pest" lit up, even making the sky look kind of reddish. My Nikon could really capture the colour in the skies ...
... city. And, not being part of the Euro Currency system, I knew it was going to be super cheap!
So after school on Friday, I caught a flight to Budapest. Budapest is actually made up of two cities, Buda and Pest which mirror each other across the Danube river. Buda is the more historical and centuries-old part and Pest is the more modern, party, and communist created part. So OBVIOUSLY, as a history teacher….I stayed in the party center in Pest ;)
Two days ...
... right when it opened, but instead elected to sleep until noon. This is a vacation, right? When we finally rolled out of bed I gathered up everyone's dirty socks and washed them in the sink. I have to admit I was a little frightened by the black water running off them, but after three rounds of washing they're almost (using that word generously) white again. Our water heater is busted and won't be fixed until tomorrow, but we think we can milk it for a couple of ...
... in the middle of the city - and a parking spot opposite the hotel. The travel gods were smiling on us. The hotel is everything we hoped for. We even got a room upgrade for free.
Wasn't quite dark outside yet so we decided to go for a bit of a walk and get our bearings, and find somewhere for dinner. Remember the comment about the travel gods? Well we checked on the car as we were ...
