Szimpla will not be to everyone's taste but is worth visiting, whoever you are. Graffiti covered, derelict, bohemian and very cool but not in a commercial way. Food and drink prices are reasonable and the whole place is actually pretty clean despite the shabby look....More

District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses
the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and
colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in
an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes
and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic
crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of
the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in
Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly

I would say it's still cheaper than UK/London bars, but more expensive than other bars in Budapest because this is the most touristy place. With £ being 25% weaker than it was when I last visited, I would say international... More
