After reading this forum I can't wait to get to Budapest! But we're not travelling until 14th November. We will be arriving quite late, the flight lands at 8.40pm, so by the time we get to the hotel we won't want to go too far for food. We're staying at the Starlight Suiten on Merleg Utca, and I'd be very grateful if anyone can recommend a restaurant nearby.
Also, I've been reading about the Christmas markets - will they be open in mid-November?
