Where else could you spend every night of your holiday, yet still feel like you have gone to multiple different clubs. Competitive drinks prices too

We knew about the place from our friends that recommended us to go there for a night out. We didn't expected to be so awesome. During the day the place is so chill and relaxing and you can spend as much time there as you want without anyone bothering you. We went also in the evening and it was packed... More

Szimpla Kert was definitely an experience. The set up is similar to a court yard with numerous bars leading off from it, and a maze of inside and upstairs places to sit, filled with old bits and bobs that give it a cool atmosphere. Drinks are well priced, but staff not so friendly. Most unusual of all was the appearance... More

After being told by numerous people to go here the expectations were very high and thankfully it delivered. Crazy art and furniture with lots of different areas to explore. Good mixed crowd, very international but nice friendly vibe. Great experience overall.

We visited Szimpla quite late at night and we both had burgers, I had a chicken one and my partner had a beef one. They were soooo good. Really good size and so much flavour. Also, the prices here are really great! The atmosphere was awesome and quirky, wish we had come another night for drinks. Would recommend to anyone... More

Ten year ago this place were my favorite when I used to come at weekend to find the quiet place to read book, or to work on laptop. Just came back after some year leaving Hungary, and the atmosphere is not as usual as I knew. Lots of foreigners, and crowd, noisy... but still feel its simplicity. The place I... More

Went to this place on 2 days and spent a lot of time sitting, talking to friends, smoking Shisha, drinking and listening to the music. It tends to get busier by the hour and by the nighttime it is really busy. Fairly easy to get a drink as there are many bars inside. Would recommend this place to people who... More

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
