Budapest IS beautiful


It's also a buzzing, vibrant city that is reasonably priced. Lots to see and do both in the Winter and the Summer. The hotels are of a much higher standard than you find in typical Mediterranean holiday resorts and during school holiday times is one of those few destinations that are genuinely affordable.

Most people come to Budapest for a 3 day city break and yet you could easily also have a fabulously affordable 2 week Summer Holiday here staying in a decent standard hotel or apartment. With typical Summer temperatures in the high 20's and early 30's you have a range of outdoor pool complexes, Margaret Island, City Park and the Buda Hills to chill out on a hot Summer's day. This really is more than just a short break city destination!

Does not include transfers to any from the airport or baggage allowance


A taxi transfer for the 11 mile journey to the city centre costs roughly £20.00 and takes about half an hour. The airport taxi service is contracted by Fötaxi and is efficiently run. You go to the kiosk outside arrivals, tell the operative the name of the hotel and you're given a ticket with the car reg number on it. Within a minute a nice shiny yellow taxi pulls in ready to assist. Impressively efficient service!

If you're travelling light, the 100E articulated bendy bus also departing between the two terminals outside arrivals takes about 40 minutes to get to the city centre and costs less than £2.50!

But before leaving the arrivals hall, there's a ticket desk for purchasing your 1, 3, 7 or 14 day travel pass which you can validate either immediately or a future date. Get it there and you can then hit the ground running!

Looks like a good deal. Can I trust this website? Does anyone has experience? Thanks
This ain't bad. Unlike some other cheap Budapest deals, this hotel is half decent and not far from the Grand Boulevard where the 4/6 tramline runs. There's a trolleybus stop even closer and the nearest metro line isn't all that far either. A river cruise, especially an evening one is not to be missed!

Well I hope you've got a travel pass. The public transport system is fast, frequent, fully integrated and reasonably priced. The Google Maps app public transport feature works really well with it.
Which to visit first Buda ? or Pest?

Which to visit first Buda ? or Pest?


All the fun and action is in downtown Pest. Buda though has some key attractions though, including the Castle District, Fisherman's Bastion, The Royal Palace, The Statue of Liberty, the Gellert baths and Stunning views of the Parliament building as well as elevated views of the city. It is very quiet at night time though compared to Pest. The two sides of the river complement each other. Don't forget Margaret Island in the middle of the river too!

I’ve used it many times, never had a problem.
Has anyone been on the train to Vienna from Budapest? Looking to do a day trip when I'm there if any one has any advice... ?
Won't be taking this deal but will certainly be going this year. After finding Prague and Vienna too touristy and to be honest dull last year it's Budapest and Bratislava this year. Still haven't found anywhere as good as Innsbruck in winter though.

Takes about 3 hours on the train. There used to be a hydrofoil service that ran between the two cities and took about 6 hours, bit sadly no longer available.

You're going to find Bratislava quite dull too compared to Budapest. Of course with Budapest the Castle District and Belvaros are especially touristy so best avoided if you want to mix with Hungarians, rather than tourists.
Is it a suitable city for wheelchair users?
TOPTIM06/02/2020 20:29

Is it a suitable city for wheelchair users?


No definitely not. Whilst the 4/6 tramline is wheelchair friendly, progress in that department is extremely slow. Having used a wheelchair in that city I've found it very difficult. Mobility scooters are pretty non-existant too.

The new line 4 metro has lifts at the stations, but much of the older transport infrastructure requires steps or escalators. Really frustrating and is one area where this needs to accelerate.

You're going to be restricted to certain areas of the city, such as the inner city, which is pedestrianised and flat, but sadly I cannot wholeheartedly recommend Budapest as a wheelchair friendly city at this time.

It would appear it's cheaper to buy hotel + flight separately...

In that case do it because so many airlines fly there that air fares are competitive.

Direct flights are available with British Airways, LOT, Norwegian, Wizzair, easyJet, Ryanair and Jet2. Take your pick.

Also there's a broad range of accommodation. The vast majority of hotels have fridges and free high speed internet and there's many spacious and reasonably priced apartments that are modern, stylish and generously equipped with convection ovens, full size fridge freezers, dishwashers and washing machines. Not like your basic stripped out Mediterranean apartment where many can't even even provide a convection oven. Pathetic!

Of course, I work in public transport 😄 it's one of the first things I look into. We bought a weekly pass it came in very handy, sometimes we just tram surfed around the city. For around £12 it was excellent value and only asked once to show it. We used the BKK Futar app which was handy.
We had an airbnb apt at Margit bridge with a view of the Danube

Good to hear. I've used the BKK Futar app before, but I've found the Google Maps version much easier to use with a clearer layout.

I love Margitsziget, as a visit to the Palatinus Strand is always one of the highlights, as is the Riverside buffet bar (where you hire those canopy bikes), the nightly water fountain display and a visit to Hippy Island. I don't rule out a future stay at the Ensana Hotel as it's perfectly situated for a Summer chillout.

Must have a look at Airbnb.

BTW those travel passes come in handy for those public river boats too. A great alternative to the No 26 bus!

I first went to Budapest in October 2019 and I was absolutely blown away, it may sound like a cliche but I feel in love with the City. Went again in January and enjoyed it even more than the first time, now I'm chomping at the bit to get back out there. I gave heat for the deal, but you can get out there dirt cheap if you know what you are doing

Happy to hear suggestions particularly from people who have been there before like yourself, have been hearing a lot of good things about it! Interested in the beer festival in May!!
