“One of the best bars in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

There is not much to dislike in Szimpla. A lot of fun people, reasonable prices, very good atmosphere, different interiour and again, lot of fun.
They play all kind of music, so everybody gets to listen to some favourite during the night. It seems that they close up when people leave :) have been there a few times, until very late hours, but never saw them close.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Went one afternoon after seeing it in a guide book. It was so indescribably different that we went back on the following 2 nights when the place was absolutely buzzing. Vast choice of drinks at reasonable prices, Shisha too and carrots!!! All age groups present from teens to oldies (like me). Excellent music, not too loud so you could actually have conversation without shouting. Do not go to Budapest without seeing this place.

“Do not leave Budapest with out going here!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This place deserves more than 5*! totally unique and has an amazing atmosphere, wasn't ridiculously priced either! we had that much fun we went out of our way to go every night of our trip! there was a great mix of people couples, backpackers, groups, young, old ect! just make sure you try to see allllll of the bar its massive! oh and ladies there is only ONE set of toilets that has proper seats (all the rest are holes in the group which aren't great when you've had a few), its downstairs and the one to the right (they are both next to each other) :)
