4 females brought a Wowcher deal to Budapest and what can I say but what a fabulous time we had and such a clean city. We felt safe visited many different things and although a little cold in the evening when we did our Danube river cruise we said that we would visit again and would recommend to all. Just be aware that you can not get Hungarian currency in travel agents in the UK.

Great City. Stayed at Pals Hostel which is very central. Good value for money. A hop on / hop off bus can cover the one hour boat trip too if you purchase the correct ticket. It's worth it if you want to enjoy the sights. The thermal baths are nice and relaxing. A must place to go to if you like to patty is The Ruin Bar' Lots of little alcoves that specialises in cocktails/wine/beers ect. Free entry too!

Stayed here for 4 nights in march 2019. Good clean hotel but on a main road and we were warned by the taxi driver that traffic is heavy morning and late afternoon. Eventually got to out room on second floor and understood what he meant. We thought the motorbike was coming into the room. Spoke to reception and was moved to a room on the 4th floor at the back. Much better and much quieter. The hotel is clean and staff are very helpful. They even provided some cake to our room when they realised it was my wife's birthday. In a good position to walk to most places though much if the area gas been developed, this is just on the outskirts but still convenient for anywhere you want to go including liberty and Elizabeth bridges.

We arrived in Budapest on the 21st December and was treated well for the first couple of hours. Taxi drivers etc seemed rude but after a little conversation (and my very poor attempts at Hungarian) every situation was left with a smile and good manners, but on a whole people are very rude. On 3 seperate occasions I was told "no we don't sell" or " no try next door" at different grocery or alcohol stores without me getting chance to ask or attempt to buy anything, witch I found confusing and frustrating as I think of my self as very easy going and very polite, I only want friends no enemies. All excursions and tourist activities we where spoken to nicely and had good service but the problem i had is with the everyday stuff like grocery shopping, buying alcohol or cigarettes. Or basically going about daily business. 90% of local people was so rude and at times just plain nasty, mean and ignorant. I have traveled the world extensively and after visiting/traveling 15+ countries, Hungary (Budapest) is the only one so far to make me feel unwelcomed. I have read and heard that Hungarians are angry people but I always think of that as personal experience until I visited and found out for my self that infact most people are horrid, the lack of manners is clear and money certainly talks. The thermal baths are very good and really enjoyable as well as certain river cruises (beware some cruises looked over sold with packed boats and steamed up windows). Our cruise was good and cheap With drinks provided but no food which we did not mind. In conclusion hungary and Budapest is a nice place with great historical sites and an interesting history but for me the people really let it down as you do not feel welcome like most countries although the food is really good. Your probably better off visiting a nicer European country as it has similarities to Paris and Amsterdam but with a lot more arrogance. I do not like to categorise people as I believe we are all made equal but the local population I met over 11 days in Budapest made it difficult to enjoy my stay and I would 100% never visit again. Next time steer clear of Hungary, krakow is very similar but with a lot more smiles and general good attitude towards human beings in general
