We will be embarking on a river cruise from Budapest in June 2013. We have scheduled an extra 2 days in Budapest to enjoy the city. Can anyone recommend a good hotel and also advise on what sites we should try and see in our short time there. Thanks for your help. Wayne
My favorite hotel for first time visitors is the K&K Opera, but Budapest has more good hotels at better prices than most place in Europe. As for what to do, get a good guide book. This web page also has some useful infromation. http://budapestflat.shutterfly.com/fivedaysinbudapest. Also look across the top of the page to links with picture of Budapest (BU1,2,3) and Hungary (HU1, 2, 3). Give me some dates and i will see if there is anything special going on in town while you are there.
