... and crepes are desserts for Greeks. Shocking...considering they are our breakfast foods. That night we had Democracy Conference with some students from Athens University. I am not a political science major but sometimes I can follow political science talk...everything at this conference went right over my head. It was interesting though to see how passionate they all were. As I was packing up my bag that night, Cynthia (one of roommates) comes in with a box. She had ...

Once we arrived the Blue Danube Hostel we instantly realised that Matt had managed to book the best hostel of the trip by a long way. With a huge TV, surround sound music system and mood lighting, not to mention a fully equipped kitchen it was a miracle that it was simply £12 a night. Not only was the ...
... first time in 5days we started Wally up and ventured up to the highest point in Budapest 'citadel'. From here we could see the most amazing view of Budapest. All the way down the Danube. You could see the flooding at its highest quite well from here too. We watched the sunset and stars till late...perfect. In the morning we went back down to our parking spot (hehe) as there was more to do in pest!! Lovely hot day so we got some drinks and went and sat on the ...

Kim and I walked towards the city where we parted ways for the day. Kim had opted for a bus tour and I decided to just keep on walking. I once again headed to Buda Castle to check out the area again as some of it had been closed off the day before. From there I walked down along the river to cross back to the Pest side using the Margaret Bridge, instead of walking the Chain Bridge again. This bought ...

The Aussie guys were going out for a drink but the others returned to the hotel by c 2100. Got a quick diary and blog done for the day before and bed by 2200, needing some ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Aquincum Hotel Budapest
This is a corporate hotel
Hotel best for business and NOT for sight seeing in Budapest as the hotel is way out of the centre.
Best option is to experience the executive club, where drinks are free through Happy Hour. This way the hotel takes on a far better perspective, when really it is only worthy of four stars. The young staff were great - the older ones were" grumpy old men."
You would have to pay ME to stay at this hotel again!
We arrived at the Aquincum hotel having caught the very efficient shuttle bus from the airport. The check-in was very quick & the staff were excellent. We decided to upgrade to 'The Executive Club' which cost £10 per night per room. We had a room overlooking the river & had a huge 6' x 7' waterbed which proved to be a lot more comfortable than i expected.
We stayed in this hotel for a long week-end in April 2005. We had a reasonably pleasant stay but do not think the hotel merits a 5-star rating.
We stayed in this hotel for my mum's birthday, with her sisters and some of my cousins (8 girls in all). We had a great time. Yes, you can't walk into the city centre unless you are really keen, but the public transport service is very good, 15minutes max.
We stayed for 2 nights 20-22 Feb 2005. The hotel was graded a five star
The hotel is quite unconvenient if you plan to go to Budapest for tourism.
The hotel and facillities were excellent.We stayed 18th Jan 05 until 21st Jan when it was nice and cold.We ate in the hotel every night which was a bit expensive (compared to the rest of Budapest) but that was because we spent the majority of the day visiting all the sights and as it was quite cold, we couldn't be bothered to get the bus or tram back into the town.The meals were nice though and so was the service.But I have to say, it would have been nice to have had more restaurants around the hotel or within easy walking distance just to get a bit more variety and to keep the cost down.
On arrival at the hotel we were asked if we wanted the executive upgrade. I am so glad that we took it. The Hotel was wonderful and the upgrade (cost €15) was unbelievable. I read the previous review about this hotel and cannot agree that the hotel was anything but 5 star in every category. The food was wonderful (to be fair we only had Breakfast) the service at both check in and check out was swift and efficient. The executive lounge was wonderful (free alchoholic and non alchoholic drinks from 5pm to 7pm easily made up for the upgrade) the upgrade room was large with a King size bed and a basket of fruit and 2 bottles of water was provided in the evening free of charge. I would most certainly go to this hotel again. As for the fact that the hotel was far away from the centre, the nearest train station was a matter of 200 metres walk, no problem there, and it took 20 minutes to be stood in the centre of Budapest (which is a wonderful city and well worth the visit).
Impressive facilities and rooms spacious and well-equipped. However, service was generally poor, particularly in restaurant where they ran out of food one night during our stay. Our friends had a room right at the end of the corridor which often did not get fully serviced (towels not changed, bed not turned back, etc) -as if it was too much trouble for staff to go right to the end of the corridor! Lack of safes in rooms was a problem - it was a complicated process leaving valuables at Reception.
