      The food was really bad. They served us some undercooked sausage which made me sick. The staff tried to overcharge us for some drinks we ordered in the bar. They also awkwardly tried to join our little group as we sat and drank. They refused to restock one of our rooms with toliet paper, proclaiming that we'd used too much of it, (there was only a partial roll when we checked in). There were also bugs. Big. Fucking. Bugs. Avoid this place unless it's under new management and cleaned up.

      ... at a Lock. It is a surprisingly smooth ride, which is a relief, as some of the reviews called it "teeth chattering". Their experience will clearly not be ours :) Cruising down the river, we have passed Hainburg, Devin Castle, Bratislava Castle, and have just landed at Lock Gabcikovo. Thirty minutes at this lock too, this time to drop down 18 metres of water. Fascinating way to ...

      ... br> The city has a mix of architecture, including Successionist. 80% of Budapest's buildings were bombed in WW2 & all of the bridges. The rebuild began in 1950 & all but one of the bridges were rebuilt as replicas. When we changed lines our bus took us to Buda, known as the castle district. Similar to Prague Castle, but there are ruins of 13th century castles and statues to kings & saints & a stunningly beautiful Cathedral with a mosaic roof ...

      ... s design was inspired by the British Parliament and is a mix of Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance. I remember the red Communist star that used to sit on top of the dome's tallest spire and for years parts were under scaffolding, as the exterior was being restored. It's finally done now and looks wonderful. It was built at a time when Hungary was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire so it's far grander and bigger than is needed nowadays. Only 1/8 of ...

We were trying to make sure that we made it to the night bus tour and asked for our bill. It seemed to be taking a while when the staff showed up with a beautiful chocolate torte with ...

      ... out front of the building because everything was torn up and new bricks were being laid down. Next up was St. Stephen's Basilica. It was a nice basilica but not the most impressive we have seen. We tried to go inside, just because we were cold, but turned around when we realized we had to pay. Seriously? Pay to see the inside of a church. You don't even have to pay to see Notre Dame. Oh well... like I said before, we had our fill of churches and fancy buildings in general for a while. ...
