Hotel and Airport Transportation

Hello,
We we’ll be staying one night after arriving via River Cruise on Sunday morning Oct. 13th with a flight the next day at 11:30 am. I am looking for a Hotel for 1 night ideally near the docks at Mahart Port on the Pest side and advice on transportation to the airport.

With JUST ONE NIGHT (and I am guessing less than 24 hours) in Budapest.

Then you have to stay on the river. You will have enough time to use the No. 2 Tram to visit the Market Hall, Chain Bridge, Danube Corso, Shoes on the Danube Memorial and Parliament Building. Nope, nix that. Its Sunday and the Market is closed. So, lets say from your hotel up river to the Parliament, then a walk across Szabadság tér to the Basilica and the pedestrian area in front. Then ride the M1 up Andrassy ut to Hero's Square. Then home (walk Andrassy ut and hop on and off the M1 as you get tired). Dinner on the Corso someplace. I sort of like https://www.facebook.com/panoramacsarda/

Next day, well, if you are flying out; eat breakfast and call a taxi to the airport.

Hi from Wisconsin,
Oh gosh. You are going to be in Budapest. Let's not stay in a Holiday Inn. You might as well stay home.

The place I have stayed at for my last five visits has been the Radio Inn. In a way, it was pure Soviet. However, while it has a web presence it just never allows a registration.

You are paying for this trip so you get a bBudapest experience. You want a Budapest experience. The Marriott room ($175) will have a great view if you are willing to pay the price. and you intend to sit in front of the window looking out onthe city you should be walking in. Let me just throw out the first place I saw on a Google Maps. I didn't read reviews or anything. The Silver Hotel ($41) is more classic Budapest. The rooms have that funky Eastern European look. And instead of entering a chain motel you will be IN Budapest. There are dozens of places to stay in Budapest.

The New York Palace. forget the name this is over the top Budapest at about $144. The famous New York Cafe, now more of a restaurant, is on the ground floor. Take a look at THAT cafe. The rooms are modern but the entrance...wow. And while not on the Danube, you are in the heart of the city.

I would recommend going on booking.com and looking around Budapest, probably Pest center. And find a place with a price/ comfort level/location. Next time I go back the New York Palace is going to be my splurge. But $144/night is about what motels want in my part of Wisconsin, and I only get a crappy new room in blah building in Wisconsin.

While you are in town go into the Four Season Hotel at Roosevelt ter. The Pest end of the Chain Bridge. Go in at night, have a drink (splurge) poke around the lobby and enjoy this beauty, then stroll back and forth across the chain bridge.

By the way, the Four Seasons has moved. It is now located on Széchenyi ter. ;-)
