    Spent about three days in Budapest whilst on river cruise. Found it to be a great place. Friendly people, nice weather at the time. Had no problems at any time. Had good service. Very tourist friendly. Very few beggars noted at this time(2 years ago).Recommended!

    We stayed in a Budapest suburb for 1 month last year & were busy all the time so much to see & do. No problems with the people or the place. Well worth visiting this city with so many beautiful buildings, great restaurants & not expensive.

    My advice for visiting Hungary in general especially if you venture away from Budapest is to have some German. The tourist sector is geared towards the Germans so often English doesn’t get you very far. Some mime acting and a sense of humour will see you through because the people are great.

    We stayed in Budapest for about 5 days. Very friendly city. We found that moving a few streets away from the main tourist strip was the best place to eat, drink and meet the locals. To my husband’s delight the beer was half the price there, as was the delicious food. We tried local little bar/cafes. Best idea is to get on your walking shoes and just walk! However, don’t forget the Hop on Hop Off buses when you first arrive. They give you a good idea of what you might like to do and see.
