    We visited the Synagogue during our trip, it was very interesting and there were free tour round (in multiple languages). The tour guide was very knowledgeable and happily answered everyones questions. The architecture was really impressive and the site has multiple areas like the exterior temple and garden. We would definitely recommend.

    Really lively place with plenty of food places, bars etc.

    It was raining the day I went but it was still busy. I think it may be slightly overrated (my opinion only!)

    Not a huge amount for vegetarians but the restuarants do have options which is limited.

    I chose spiller bistro and their burger and chips was really nice. Service was excellent. Either 5 8 or 12% service. You choose. I chose 12 as they were on the ball, smiley and quick with service. Total including service with a bottle of water was around £20 or pound less. To get an idea.

    Weather was rainy and about 4 degrees 13th January for your understanding.

    Very safe to walk around as well!

    We stayed three nights at this lovely hotel before our river cruise, and staying here may have been the highlight of the entire trip.

    Without doubt, this is a stunningly beautiful building, especially the breakfast and cafe area. The exterior is also magnificent. Our room was spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. Rooms in the historic old building appear similar to those in the new, but have higher ceilings. Breakfasts were superb (make sure you book breakfast included), with a wide-ranging buffet plus cooked to order. I highly recommend their version of eggs benny.

    But the best part of all may be how the staff made us feel. I can't say enough about the large serving staff of mostly young people. Genuinely friendly, ever-present without being obtrusive, they certainly made my wife and I feel like very special guests.

    If I were to be a character written into a novel, who ends living for an extended time in a grand hotel (A Gentleman in Budapest?), this is where I would want to be.

    It was a joy to stay here.

    Great price, great atmosphere. The aesthetics are so chilled and nice, it made for a great night. There are nice open space areas to get fresh air, cool off, or smoke. And there's bars everywhere serving all sorts of stuff.

    The synagogue was beautiful and the guide very informative. The ghetto almost impossible to read the information as so many people all standing in front. This was January, later in the year must be a nightmare

    Situated right behind the Great Synagogue of Budapest is the poignant Holocaust Tree of Life Memorial, designed by sculptor Imre Varga. It is said to be the hidden gem of Dohany Street. The memorial was built in honor of the 400,000 Jews who were killed by the Nazis.

    As you observe the memorial, you will notice that it is constructed in the form of weeping willow symbol of mourning in the Hungarian Jewish tradition, it has the names of Holocaust victims inscribed on its leaves. The park was established in the 1990s after Hungary regained a democratic rule. The memorial was completed in 1996, thanks to the generous donation from Estée Lauder, renowned international manufacturer of beauty and skincare products.

    Located right behind the Great Synagogue of Budapest is the Raoul Wallenberg Holocaust Memorial Park. It is truly a serene and peaceful place to reflect on what happened here. Raoul Wallenberg was another diplomat who became famous for his heroic activism in saving thousands of Budapest Jews during the Holocaust in 1944. Wallenberg, a young and energetic envoy from Sweden, was fearless in confronting German and Hungarian Nazis even at the risk of his own life. Tragically, he later died in a Soviet prison.

    The place we stayed is Kiraly Street, It is a shopping street with lots of different stores. It is not like the pedestrian Fashion street at all and it is more for the locals. There are lots of small cafe and restaurants, grocery stores etc,

    The further away you walk from the city centre, the more reasonable is the price of the restaurants and cafe.

    Entry fee: 1000 HUF (around 2.5 EUR). Enjoyed my time here, exploring amazing level of details and talent placed in creating the glass mosaics. The Roth Miksa Memorial House in Budapest was the home of Roth Miksa, the internationally well-known Hungarian mosaicist and stain glass artist responsible for making mosaic and stained glass prominent art forms in Hungarian art.
