    Hotel Chesscom

    by

    Hotel Chesscom is a 2 star hotel that we stayed for a week.

    It is located in 19th district, between the city center and the Ferihegy airport. Although a bit far from the center Kobanya-Kispest metro station is just at the corner so we reached the center every day in 17’(about 10 stops). The airport bus 200E also departs/arrives from Kobanya Kispest so it is very convenient if you want to be near the airport (the bus ride takes about 15’). If you arrive at terminal 1 you can use bus 93.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful when needed, there was always someone at the reception, they will give you the same map that is available at the airport too. We arrived early in the morning so we just left our bags there and returned later.

    We were placed at second floor where we had a spacious double room (actually it was a triple room) with plenty of room for us, there was a table, 2 chairs, a safe and a satellite TV but the most helpful thing was the fridge. The view was towards the mall (pic) with a bit noise from the cars but nothing really annoying.

    We had shared bathroom with another room which was very clean and most of the days it was like a private one as the other room wasn’t occupied. New towels were provided each day.
    The hotel has 21 rooms, some of the insuite (single, double, triple, quadruple) while others(single, double, triple) with shared bathroom.

    The price was so good that it was impossible to resist (22euros per night!) and although we were stressed about it we enjoyed our stay there.

    There is a computer for internet access at the lobby for free but also wi-fi signal through out the hotel. Free private parking is possible on site.

    Opposite the hotel is a shopping mall (KYKI) which house several clothing brands, cafes etc but above all a Tesco market where we could buy supplies every day.
    Breakfast is served daily between 7.00 to 10.30am but it wasn’t included in the price so we preferred to have breakfast outside on local cafés which is always much better

Budapest Concerts

by ddschur

We will be in Budapest in very late September of this year and have an interest in attending an opera or classical music concert.

Where is the best website to determine what will be playing at that time and access to tix to something we might be interested in attending?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Hello

This site is quite good:
http://www.jegymester.hu/index.jsp?lang=ENG¢ralHeader=1
On the left side you can check opera and music and also can buy your ticket online. You can pay with card and print a simple page as your ticket.

A good general site that may be of help: www.whatsonwhen.com. It's a world wide site, so it may also be of use in the future. Gary

The Hungarian State Opera house is the place to go. It has some pretty cheap seats, but it gets booked out fast. For the most popular operas, you'll want to book at least a month in advance. As someone already said, jegymester is the place to go for booking, but you can get more information (and direct links to jegymester) by checking out their website:

Smart evening wear is the norm, but it's not enforced, so you can dress in rags if you dare :).

Travel Tips for Budapest

Keep your eyes open..

by Mique

For on every corner you litterally might find little gems like this one.. Nd i know that is something we all do when we travel but in Budapest i really felt like i needed another set of eyes..

This little coner adornation i found on Buda hill..

Holes in the walls

by MedioLatino

On some buildings of Budapest you will still see some holes or like on this one the places of the holes which are "original" memories, marks of shootings from WW2 or the revolution of 1956.

Hope they will be gone in the next 5-10 years or so...

"Hungarian National Accelerator"

by cheesecake17

Well, where ever you go you will see this little bomb shaped bottle which feature a golden cross on the front call UNICUM....now the taste of it..uhmmmm I am not a drinker so this taste pretty awful to say the least..:)))).....

Anyway... I have heard that Unicum is an acquired taste..and drunk mostly in Hungary and by Hungarians.....not one of my favorite memories of Hungary...LOL......

All it is ..is a skilful blend of more than 40 carefully selected herbs and spices. The lengthy ageing process which takes place over 6 months in oak casks gives Unicum its inimitable bitter-sweet flavour and exotic bouquet. It makes a perfect aperitif or dessert drink due to its beneficial and soothing effect on the stomach.

If you are brave try it at least once.....:)...

Critical Mass

by MedioLatino

Biking in Budapest is still not the easiest in the world, but slowly and surely its getting better.
Critical Mass participants are fighting for the recognition of biking in the city and for more bike roads.

Here, we have actually reached the critical mass, since last April there were 50000 bikers participating! It was amazing! :)

If you happen to be around, join one of the CM City tours (there is usually one in April and one in September). Bike and maybe a funny costume :)

Inside the independance-park...

by Pavlik_NL

Inside the independance-park is a little lunapark with a giant wheel. Not that gigantic, but high enough to have a nice view over Pest and towards Buda. The park is behind the independance-square, where soldiers change guard at the monument for the unknown soldier. Inside the park is an old castle, which has some very nice courtyards, and some bathinghouses.
