    Medium prices, low quality

    by

    Me and my girlfriend stayed 1 night in Hotel Touring. This hotel was in the 3rd district in Budapest, near the Danube.

    When we arrived we saw two buildings, made of ferroconcrete, so they were really ugly. As I heard these buldings were some kind of workers hostel in the socialist era, and Gerand Group bought them.

    The interieor was cheap and ugly, as well the rooms were. The bed was clean but it was an old furniture. The whole design of the room was weak, I really didn't like it. The bar was expensive, I felt myself as in a 4 stars hotel, but hotel Toruing had just 2 stars.

    I used the wifi connection hardly, since it was too weak. The employees said that it is because the students on the upper floors steal the sign, and overload the network. I accepted this explanation, since I couldn't do anything else :(

    I don't recommend you this hotel.

    Unique Quality: The overal view of this hotel is poor, they are ferroconcrete buildings.

    Directions: Near the Suburban Railway's Bekasmegyer Station.

Budapest to Bucharest

by canadiantraveller87

Hi there

I am just wondering if anyone can let me know the cheapest way to get from Budapest to Bucharest, Romania. Either a bus, train or a combination if that is necessary. Thanks!

Re: Budapest to Bucharest

by canadianinromania

Cheapest way will be Eurolines. There are smaller companies that do this route; but getting accurate information online is near impossible. You can ask people in Budapest while you are there.

Are you planning on any travel in Romania at all? If so, you can get an International train ticket 1 way from Bud to Buch that allows you multiple stops on the same route. Each time you stop you just need to get a new seat reservation; which are quite cheap ( 2-5 Euro)

Alain was explaining everything but I was more in awe looking at the beautiful ambience around me !

Franciscan church on Ferencziek tere (square)

by 1courage

This church is originally medieval and was built in the 1250`s in gothic style.

After the big defeat that the hungarians suffered at Mohács in 1526, the turks came to Pest-Buda and burned up among others also this church. 15 years after the turks occupied Buda, transformed the church and until 1686 it remained Sinan-beg`s mosque.

In 1686 right after the reconquest in this church was celebrated the firs catholic mass. Leopold the I. gave back the church to the fransiscan monks in 1690.

The recontruction in baroque style lasted for several decades and terminated in 1743. On the 21th september of this year the new/old church was reconsacrated.

In 1950-ben a the communists dissipate te franciscan order and so the monks could return here only in 1990.

Just like the biggest part of the franciscan churches, also this one has the tower at the obbosite part to the entrance.

Due to the heavy traffic of the nearby Kossuth street, the church isn`t in very good shape. Fortunately the street will be completely modified and pedestrianized within a couple of years and so this church will not be in a rushy place anymore and also the Ferencziek square where you find it will be once again a calm and lovely place.

15th March - Commemorations at the National Museum

by MedioLatino

The 15th March is a National Holiday in Hungary to commemorate the revolution of 1848.

At this time major festivities are being held around the city, one of the biggest ones at the National Museum.

(The National Museum is on Muzeum krt., near Kalvin ter M3 underground station)

Children's railway

by Dabs

A fellow Vter recommended this to me and then I saw a writeup of the trip in Fodor's and it turned out to one of the most enjoyable things we did.

The children's railway is totally run by children except for actually driving the train. Children sell the tickets, take the tickets, give information, etc. It was known as the Pioneers Railway until 1990 when Communism was kaput.

Part of the fun is actually getting there, we took tram 56 from Moszkva Ter, a 15 minute ride through lovely tree lined streets and residential area. At the end of the line, head back the way the tram came up and look for a staircase going up, at the top you should see the sign for the railroad. Buy your ticket and hop on board for the 45 minute one way ride through the hills and forest of Buda.

There are 6 stops in between, if you have a morning to spare, you can get off, the station had a brochure that detailed what you could do at each stop that was in English. One of the stops was the highest point in Budapest (Janos-hegy), a nice idea if you have a clear day (we didn't). If you get off here, I understand you can take the chairlift back down or you can get back on the train.

At the end of the line, follow the crowds and take the cog wheel railway to the end where you can pick up tram 56 to take you back to Moszkva Ter.

The cost is 300 ft (around $1.50 US), a real bargain!

You can do the entire trip backwards from what we did, not sure if there is an advantage to doing it one way over the other.
