Visted this place in a hurry before they closed to make our travel purchases as we only had an hour or so and found it pleasantly nice.

If you're going to Budapest you NEEd to visit Szimpla Kert. It gives you the old feel of Pest but in the most modern way, it is very quirky, very fun and you should get a shisha when you go. Highly Recommend!

Magic place, different styles, furnitures and ornaments. For sure is one of the top must see in Budapest. You can sit with friends for a drink, eat hamburger or smoke shisha. It's a dog friendly place and Kids loves that too.

Not difficult to find the place but it was difficult to find somewhere to sit down and have a beer because it was very crowded. Nice beer, quirky decoration. Recommended.
