Travel Blogs from Budapest
I didn't know anything at all about Hungary before I went over so I did just a little bit of reading up, but on the whole I liked the idea of not going with any expectations, and planned to take it as I found it. Budapest is the capital of Hungary. It's known as the 'Paris of Europe', and along with Vienna, it's THE City of Opera. Budapest comes …
... up a whole lot of stairs to the top, I didn’t actually whinge so quite proud of myself there! As we were walking up Zoltan mentioned that one of the other couples on the tour were Kiwis so of course I went over for a chat and we put to and two together and realised we had a mutual friend (Jenny Hoebergen) from Matamata ( Glen says he can’t take me anywhere). The palace grounds were pretty cool and they had a small changing of the guard while we were ...
... gorgeous bargain was made !! After lunch we pushed onto the canon store , to be told the depressing and disheartening news , Canon was on deaths door aka buy a new one :'(. Holding back tears we trooped up to Fishermans Bastion , a fantastic lookout across the city and eventually wound our way past the palac and down to Grand Central Market for dinner . With ruin bars to explore tomorrow and a hike to Budapest best look out , our time is coming to an incredibly fast close here ...
... that with his accent it totally sounded like he told me to sit, and I said why would you even mention the word sit in the middle of take off. If he would have said nothing Im sure I would have continued to run and the take off would have been smooth as usual. He said he understood and we laughed about it, but he did admit to me that he was quite nervous there for a few crucial seconds. As we flew I looked over at Courtney and saw the biggest smile on her face and could tell she ...
Today we woke up around 8am so that we could get to our walking tour by 9am. It was a free walking tour and at the end you give the guide a tip. We got some starbucks for breakfast (suprise suprise) and then met the rest of the group. The guide was really good, her name was Stefania and she was really friendly. The walking tour took us pretty much all over Budapest. We saw the most famous street in the city, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews NH Budapest
I have been visiting Budapest since 1987, my partner and I have been going there together now for a couple of years. The NH Hotel is simply our favourite hotel of those I have stayed at. We spent two weeks there in July 2004. The location is wonderful - all the main sights are within walking distance if youu do not mind walking for 20 mins or so, and the hotel is in the old antique district. It is very near the river and you can walk on to Margit Island, which is a lovely way of spending a hot afternoon. You can also stroll over to the main sights of Buda in about 45 minutes.
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. A very smart contemporary styled hotel, worthy of its 4 stars. The rooms were in excellent condition with top quality furnishings and bedding. This hotel only opened in October 2003. Staff was excellent, room service prompt and very reasonable prices. The bar area was nice too. Breakfast was fantastic, an unbelievable array of items:- cereals, dried fruits, fresh fruits, all kinds of rolls and breads, bacon, eggs, sausage, hash browns, mushrooms, tomatoes, danish pastries and my favourite - pain aux raisin, pancakes - I think you get the picture, oh and every kind of juice, every kind of tea and of course, coffee!
Excellent all round
I am lucky enough to stay in high quality hotels all over the world due to my work. This hotel is an absolute steal, great prices excellent decor, bar, restaurant and reception staff. All round great hotel, I will be staying here whenever I am in Budapest again. It is not right down by the river but is close enough that it doesnt matter.
Superb friendly hotel
A great hotel, clean, trendy with excellent restaurant and helpful staff. Definitely recommend.
My friend and I stayed at the NH Budapest from Tuesday 21 September until Friday 24 September, having previously stayed in Prague (Andel's Design Hotel) and subsequently staying in Vienna (Pension Domizil). We arrived by train into Nyugati station, which was 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Compared to the hustle and bustle of the streets outside, the hotel was an oasis of calm. The public areas are great in a well designed, understated sort of way. The room was very nice and modern, though the lighting was a bit dim. It was also a bit annoying that we had to walk to the end of the room furthest from the door in order to turn off the lights! Breakfast wasn't included (EUR 16!!!) so we ate out. We went for a run in the rain one night and the sauna was greatly appreciated afterwards! The hotel isn't all that close to the main tourist sights, but we didn't mind walking most of the time, and we did brave the underground a couple of times. All in all, NH Budapest is an ideal place to stay.
Great hotel - fantastic city
My girlfriend and I have just returned from a long weekend in Budapest staying at the NH. The staff are very friendly and very helpful and speak perfect English which helped as our Hungarian is not too good - they arranged our transport back to the airport for us and it arrived bang on time!!
The hotel does cater for business people although we did not feel out of place at all. Hotel design is clean, modern and functional. It is a short walking distance to the trams and metro and is situated about 5-10 mins walk from the Danuabe and Magrit Island. Our room was clean and well designed with very comfy bed!! Overall a great base to explore the city.
Just returned from 5 nights in Budapest at the NH. This is a really nice place that caters to business travellers, but also works well for tourists like my wife and I. The hotel is in a good location, in a nice neighbourhood in the north of the city centre about 500 metres from where St. Margaret's bridge spans the river. There is a tram line running east-west/west-east about 250 metres from the hotel and a river-side north-south/south-north tram that terminates next to St. Margaret's bridge. The Metro is within walking distance, with a stop about 600 metres to the east. The rooms are modern, comfortable and clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Our, quite reasonable, price of accomodation included a medium to large breakfast buffet at which we happily ate every morning. Would definitely stay there again.
Excellent new hotel
Just returned from staying 4 nights at the NH hotel and couldn't fault it.Very efficient & courteous staff,rooms where large and very well kept and the position was great for sight seeing and plenty if places to eat and drink on your door step.
We have just returned from 4 nights in Budapest - great city and had a lovely time. We stayed at the NH which is close enough to the centre of town to walk in and is also close to the Danube.
Fantastic hotel in a great city
This is a lovely hotel. After staying in a supposidly 4 star hotel in Paris this was an easy 5. The rooms were nice and roomy and very modern. The staff were excellent always there to help. The restaurant served superb food nearly stopping us from searching out the other great restaurants in this city.Stay- 4 nights March 2004
