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 …
... in our best clothes and it was asthonising. We enjoyed the play. A weird environment where you're supposed to dress up. Once in a while a tourist sneaks in, but quickly feels very uncomfortable with all these dresses and suits. It's always strange to see how the majority sets the pace. After that I had us drop off at the New York Palace, known as the most beautiful cafe in the world where we had a late ...

... further but plunging into the COLD water pool at our hotel soon cooled me down.

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
