Just spent 4 days in beautiful Budapest, and this lovely hotel is in the most perfect location. Each room has enormous picture windows, so uninterrupted views of the Danube. Opposite, on the other side of the Danube is the magnificent Parliament building, and just to the right is their famous Chain Bridge, both lit up beautifully at night. Fantastic photo opportunities! Behind the hotel, up endless steps and sloping pathways, is the beautiful Castle district - a must see tourist spot. More excellent photo opportunities. If you prefer, a few minutes walk from the hotel is the Funicular railway, which takes you up to the Castle district - quite expensive, but saves the legs!
Breakfast was good, and you can even come back at 4pm for free tea and biscuits! Didn't really need to eat again till evening, and there are several good restaurants within a few minutes walk. Particularly liked the Belgian one literally next door!
A couple of important tips about Budapest. We were told that everybody, including visitors, must carry photo I.D. Also, if you are over 65, you can travel FREE on all the buses, trains, etc. Didn't apply to us, but sounds like a really good deal if you want to check it out further.
