I have a few days to play with in my itinerary the first week in May in Hungary. I have a love for the Grande Dames of hotels like the Grand Hotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary, Pera Palace in Istanbul, Empress in Victoria. I’ll be into my solo trip about two weeks by then. A spa day sounds very tempting. I’m considering Hotel Palota in Lillafured outside Miskolc for two nights to relax, do a little hiking and get off the regular tourist trek.
Has anyone stayed at this beautiful hotel? If so, what was your experience like? Would you recommend it if it came at the expensive of time in Eger?
(James E., I hope your listening and recovered from your kidney stones. You are our default Hungary guru!)
I also heard Szechenyi Chain Bridge in Budapest is closed for repair and there is a passenger ferry to carry passengers across. Does anyone know if the ferry is covered by the regular transit pass?
