... among the sea of cars due to an accident, which took up majority of the time. When I arrived at the metro it was surprisingly lively at 9:00pm; it was fully lit, and fully guarded. The eleven stop ride brought me to the centre of Budapest, and I could feel the change of scenery instantly. The smell, the architecture, and the shops, all gave off a vibe that I was completely new to me. I was so caught up with the unfamiliar culture that I managed to get ...
... any more. Go into the Hilton and find out where the hell this place is – and I don’t care how much a taxi costs – I’m not walking back. Just take me to Gerbeaud. It was good enough for Queen Elizabeth (aka Empress Sisi); it’s good enough for me! The taxi reeked of smoke and of course just above the driver’s head was a sign in English, “No Smoking ...
... Budapest from Vienna we met a traveler from London on the train. We had a good time talking with him and when we found out he too was stopping in Budapest and would be staying near us we planned on having lunch with him. So off to meet in front of Comedy Theater. It is a theater built at the end of the 19th century in opposition to the conservative National Theatre and it became an institution of Hungarian drama, and one of the oldest theatres ...

Dinner was at a medieval themed restaurant called Sir Lancelot, where Ivan was knighted Sir Ivan "the brave" and Vlad ate a Pork knuckle that must have come from a pig only slightly smaller than a rhino. After dinner Vlad and Ivan went on a bit of a bar crawl through Boobyfest, settling ...
... of guiding us through the chaos. We checked into the Mercure, showered and relaxed, and then headed out for dinner and a river cruise. I indulged in some local comfort food - grilled Camembert w/ raspberry sauce, goose leg w/ crushed potatoes and red cabbage and for dessert, a special Hungarian sponge cake called Somloi galuska - something like Tiramisu. It was delicious!! The river cruise at night was a real treat - all the beautiful buildings along the ...

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.
