To start i will say we only paid £130 for four nights for the two of us in total for B&B so lets be fair....£16 a night each - i wasn't expecting the Hilton. I will however say that Thompson rated this as 4T's which is a bit much. It's an average 3* hotel at best. We ate out every night so dinner wasn't an issue. They tried to deny us breakfast on our second morning but apologised straight away when they realised they were wrong. We never left a tip for the room cleaners as the only thing they did was make our bed (which we could have done). They didn't even empty our glasses of water from our bedside for the 4 nights we were there, or put into the bin any empty shampoo packets mistakenly left in the bathroom. We were on the 3rd floor and the first night was very noisy in the corridor. The walls are very thin and i'm pleased i took earplugs. That said, the staff were helpful when asked anything and they didn't charge us for a phone call when i realised i'd booked our return taxi for the wrong time to the airport. The spa facilities are fine and the pool was ample seeing as i didn't intend to spend too long in the hotel. it really was for us just a base for putting our heads down. that said i don't do hostels so wouldn't have wanted anything run down. We used Airport Transfers Budapest (ATB) who were brilliant and not too expensive. Driver apologised for being late when in fact we'd touched down early. They then turned up two hours early at our urgent request when i'd booked the wrong departure time. Couldn't recommend them enough. Be careful when using the trams. We didn't know how to validate our tickets and tried watching the locals but no-one seemed to do theirs. When the ticket inspectors got on, we were booted off the tram for fare dodging and fined £20 each (12,000HUF in total). Not really fair on a tourist who intentionally purchased a ticket but just didn't know how to validate it. That was our only bad point. Recommend you learn some basic words. Thank You got us big smiles where ever we went. Recommend the Orange Hop On Hop Off bus tour - 5,000HUF gets you a 24hr bus pass, 2 boat trips valid for a year, 1 beer, and 1 Goulash. 1 boat trip alone was worth 2,100 HUF's. overall a good city to do a four day visit to.
