    I was in Budapest a few days ago. It was very good. Our hotel was great, with friendly staff. we went around the city by bike. It was great! I think the name of the shop is Hi-bike! Their logo was a big hand. The shop is close to Deak Ferenc sq. You can easily find it Their prices are good and the bikes too. This was one of the best entertainment. We looked at the night life also! Do not miss out! Go to the Morrisons.it was great. I really want to see the Margaret Island again! Bec It was fantastic! Have a nice trip when you going! I had only 1 problem the weather on this wednesday. :( :)
