    A very good four star hotel at a good price!

    by

    Well,where should I start?I've seen this hotel quite a few times when I've been looking for a hotel in Budapest(been 8 times).The hotel isn't close to the river.But,that isn't a problem because there are regular buses in the main street(2mins walk) from the hotel(it take 5 mins to Astoria).It's about ten mins walk to the nearest metro.About the same to the Keleti railway station.

    The hotel itself was immaculately kept.The room I had was on the inside of the building.This overlooked the breakfast room(the ones front would only look at another building).The room itself was of a good size(see photo's) and was very clean.The bed in the room had a good mattress on it(on the firm side).The bathroom was a little small.But,it wasn't enough to worry about.I was surprised to find that the floor of it was heated!The only real negative thing about the room was.It was a little dark until the sun rose properly in the sky.But,that what lights are for!

    Their breakfast starts at 7am on weekdays,7.30 at weekends.The breakfast itself had a large range of choice.Fry egg,scramble egg,boiled eggs,sausages,bacon,hash browns,beans and cooked tomatoes.There was bread(3 types),cheese,meats,cereals,yogurts and fruits/vegetables.There was also a range of fruit juices(3) and hot drinks.The bacon was a little over cooked for my liking.But,it seems to be cooked like the that in Hungary.All the rest of the food was cooked to a good standard.

    There is a small bar at the hotel.But,its situated at the side of the reception.So,you'll be sitting in the reception area if you wanted to have a drink.That wasn't a problem!There are quite a few bars/restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel.

    The staff in the hotel were very friendly and attentive.There wasn't anything that was too much trouble.I was so happy with my week stay in March.I've booked another week in June.I would happily recommend this hotel.

    Directions: Just off a main street.

    Boutique modern

    by

    We were very happy with the standard of accommodation, security and amenities of the Bristol Hotel during a four night stay. Fit out is very modern.
    We arrived in Budapest at Kelti station and the Bristol is only a five minute walk away - One stop if a bus is preferred.
    As well as that, it is well placed to access city public transport on Metro, Bus & Tram. A two kilometre walk along Rákóczi út (street) will take you to the river but the public transport options are great (suggest you get a 48 hour or 72 hour pass).
    Staff were very helpful in recommending a restaurant in which to dine (see review) and specially helpful when we arranged an early check-out. They provided a breakfast package.
    The inclusive buffet breakfast was excellent and included hot dishes as well as the usual Continental style offerings.(Available weekday between 07.00 and 10.30 a.m. - weekend between 07.30 and 11.00 a.m)
    There is a drinks bar so a relaxing time can be had in the lounge after a hard day’s touristic activity.
    Although we did not try them a sauna and exercise room are available.
    Free WIFI plus a free laptop is available also. As you would expect, there is laundry service and a luggage room if you need to put luggage aside before checking in or after checking out.

    Unique Quality: We voted the establishment better than average and declared that the price was less than what we were used to paying for the same quality. Less than one hundred dollars Australian per room per night - breakfast included.

    Directions: Easily accessed by walking 560m from Kelti Station west sth west along Rákóczi út

Hotel Location

by doodlebug007

Does anyone know if the Boutique Hotel Bristol can be classified as being in the City? Only asking as trying to book a transfer from airport and they are giving different area categories/prices etc Budapest Port, City, Danube bend, eger etc etc. Also is it the best option to prebook or is it easier to get a taxi on arrival

Re: Hotel Location

by leics

Yes, it's in the city near Keleti station. Put 'boutique hotel bristol budapest' into googlemaps and you'll see exactly where it is.

I'd prefer to stay a bt nearer to the centre of Pest, personally.

Rather than pre-book a transfer or taxi I suggest you use the excellent BUD minibus shuttle service direct to your hotel. You simply go to their office in Arrivals and book a transfer to your hotel...you won't wait more than 15 mins or so max. Very efficient, very courteous drivers, very good value. Your hotel can book the return trip for you, or you can do it yourself at the office when you arrive.

You can also pre-book online if you want, but I have never bothered:

If you're flying into Terminal 1 at the Budapest airport you might like to consider taking the train to Nyaguti station and then a taxi to your hotel from there.
I was told by my hotel receptionist that the motorway from the city centre to the airport is currently having major roadworks and it can take up to 90 minutes to get to the airport.
I took the train from Terminal 1 which was only about 15-20 minutes and very cheap - HUF365

Hope you have a good trip,
Regards,
Mike

As previously suggested, you don't need to prebook. Depending on your arrival terminal, you can take the train, shuttle or taxi. All of them are convenient and you won't be ripped off. Taxi is the most expensive option, but you will exactly know the cost before you take it as there is a booth giving you the price to your destination.

Hi J, Margaret again

Can l just ask about the BUD shuttle service you recommended as we will probably try to use it:-

Is their office quite easy to spot at the airport as think there are 2 terminals there?

Also do the booking staff/drivers speak reasonable english

Many thanks

Margaret

Re: Hotel Location

by leics

Hi Margaret. You have mail!

But for other people:

There are BUD offices in all 3 terminal buildings. You will land in terminal 1, and the office is on the left just before the exit doors from arrivals.

In my experience all the drivers speak at least adequate English, many much more than just adequate, and are very courteous. The older office ladies can be a bit unsmiling but they understand English quite well enough and are both efficient and organised.

Travel Tips for Budapest

ATM machines

by irvbur

Although ATM machines are to be found all over, the transaction is always in local currency. BE PREPARED. For example, do not go up to an ATM and think you'd like to withdraw $500 worth of local currency. You first must know the amount in local currency that $500 will buy. I always carry a currency cheat sheet when travelling. In addition to ATM transactions, it's also easier to bargain and make purchases.

The Old Town, after being...

by Pegasus74

The Old Town, after being destroyed in WWII, was reconstructed to restore its original allure. Retaining their medieval form, the cobbled streets run amid stretches of baroque and Gothic houses, many of which have peaceful courtyards. The Fisherman's Bastion, with its seven conical turrets connected by a walkway, presents a perfect river panorama. Through the arched viewing terrace, you can get a good view of the elegant Parliament building together with its reflection on serene Danube.

Conspicuous by her spectacular spire, the neo-Gothic Matthias Church is not to be missed. Located next to the Fisherman's Bastion, its exterior is resplendent with multicolored roof tiles and its dazzling interior is richly decorated with beautiful floral motifs. On Easter Monday while I was there, this place was packed with tons of worshippers, as well as visitors who simply peep and go.

The Museum of Military History, located at the west corner of Old Town, is one interesting museum that houses a wide range of such military items as uniforms, weapons and flags relating to the skirmishes and wars that have afflicted Budapest. The exhibit about the 1956 Revolution is of particular interest. This section displays pictures of the demonstrations which ended in a Soviet invasion and a huge civilian death toll.

Karoly krt

by DPando

One of the most visited boulevard during our time in Budapest..it link our hostel and the city center, actually closer to the tourist info point 1 minute from deak ter on foot there is a small but nice internet coffee shop. its in a small courtyard where side by side of it you can rent bycicles

Take a closer look at the buildings

by MelanieBee

As you walk around Budapest, pay attention to the buildings around you...

for instance, this building (indicating that you can get your own place decorated like this for free) in Dessewffy utca , is riddled with bullet holes.

Some of the buildings in the arcades are quaint, and some even well maintained (see picture 2).

And some (picture 3) are a mixture of classical architecture and retro advertising...

The hill named afetr Bishop St Gellert.

by dabidc

Bishop Gellert represents the time in Budapest's history when paganism was overcome.

The statue faces Pest and is best viewed from the steps as the path leaves the hill.

I noticed that there were some men working on the top of the parapet behind the statue. After a while I took another photo, see the next view, and I would like to find out if any one knows what was taking place.

The date was Friday October 1st.
