This place is really a restaurant renting out rooms. The whole thing seems a bit shady. The rooms are in a building that has also locals living there. There is no real reception or hotel staff. It was cheap and the room was ok, we didn't spent that much time there anyways. The only time when we saw the staff...

The hotel is centrally located, but the entrance is through a restaurant and not really visible from outside. We booked a night through the Internet but when we got there they told us the house was full. I showed my reservation but a very rude waiter (from the restaurant) told us to go. He called the manager on the phone,...

Restaurant stuff will empty your wallet in cold blood and shamelessly explain you why your bill is so sky high for so poor meal and service. Menu has no meaning here.

When I got to the hotel, I was asked by one of the waiters to wait until he had time to check me in. It took about 45 minutes before he had time to sit with me. So, I thanked him for making time. While he was doing the paperwork, I asked him about internet access which was included in...

A cynical tourist rip-off. A very BAD start to my evening in Budapest. They charged triple for wine and then for bread and then some bogus tax on top. The bill was more than 3000 F more than it should have been. If Franz Joseph I stayed here in 1885 then they should be even more ashamed of themselves. On...

Had a meal at this resteraunt. The bill when it arrived bore little relation to the menu. The guy who runs this place does a disservice to the rest of the resteraunts on the Vaci Utca who serve good at fair prices. This place doesn't.

After being warned by our Tour Guide that same day to always look at a menu when ordering drinks and food, we were that giddy that we forgot and as my two sisters, niece and myself had had such a lovely evening and we were heading for a bar we had been to the previous night - The For Sale...

I was annoyed with myself for falling for the sales patter of the man outside this restaurant. There are signs on the pavement offering a 'tourist menu' for a good price and '50% off Hungarian dishes'. The restaurant and decor itself are fine. It is in a cellar and thus very cosy. When we ate there Gypsy violinists were playing...

While strolling down the street on a recent trip to Budapest, I was suckered into having a drink on the streetside tables. The waiter said a beer was 600 forints or about $3.00. I asked for the larger size which is my fault for not asking the price, but the bill came to $25 for 2 larger beers, I complained...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
