Our stay here was so wonderful. We, too, arrived during the St. Stephan's Festival. Below our sixth floor room overlooking the Danube, were festival tents hawking local bier, wine, nuts, tower cakes, goulash, lagos for 800 meters in both directions. Our first evening meal was spent in this beautiful open air setting on picnic tables looking at the stunning Parliament building. The next nite, we were overwhelmed watching the barges fire their fireworks simultaneously with accompanying music from near the Margaret & Chain bridges and one in front of us! Even without the festival, this location is perfect. We took a boat taxi from a stop 100 meters up (and free to "pensioners" over 65) to Margaret Island, ran around the island and stopped in to the water park with hot springs after, then walked along the Danube home. (Do your run first, before entering the spa, for once you are in there, you cannot go out and return)
It was another short walk to the Chain Bridge for entry to the Pest side or the funicular for access to the Castle & Museum. The restaurants nearby the hotel on the water were very good...wish I could remember all the names, but they were within 200 meters of art 'otel. One name was easy to remember the Carne di Hall...get it? Another was an outdoor grill with a nice duck breast and great steak, even if we did have to box it up to go see the fireworks from our room. It was St. Stephan's, and they were slammed. The third was a Belgian bier place. All had outdoor seating, but you might have to reserve those tables. The grill was all outdoors with maybe 20 tables. The location made the city wonderful and we walked from 10-10 each day eating unhealthy wonderful food and still lost weight!
