“choose a hotel nearby”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We stayed in a hotel nearby on Hegyalja way and it was really fantastic. You can walk up to the Castle hill and you can enjoy the beautiful historic area. I prefer this part of the city, it is cheaper, nicer, calmer, safer...

“beautiful and great vista of Budapest”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

It really is very beautiful up the hill and the view over the city is incredible from up there. The streets up there are so pretty and the Fishermans Bastion fairytale-like. There is a funicular cable car if you don't fancy the steps, we always take the steps.

“Take the Funicular...”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

...unless you're a teenager.

It is a long, steep climb up the "hill" from the Danube bridge.

But either way it is well worth the effort.
