Location description from owner
The Central Hungary region
The landscape to the north of Budapest is shaped by the river and the hills. You can easily get out into the countrysidealong the winding main road that follows the former Roman Limes, or by taking one of several cycling routes that arebeing constructed. But the best way to appreciate the river and its sights is to board a boat travelling from Budapestthrough the Szentendre Danube branch as far as Visegrád.Szentendre (C/5)***, a pearl of the Danube Bend, can easily be reached on the “HÉV” train from Budapest’s BatthyánySquare. The green train carriages carry passengers between the capital and many smaller settlementsbeyond. Many people live in these towns and villages and commute to work in Budapest.As the narrow river valley broadens once more, you’ll arrive at one of themost picturesque Danube settlements – the former capital of Hungary,Visegrád (B/4)***. Here is the royal palace***, built in the 14th century byKing Charles Robert (Róbert Károly) and reconstructed in Renaissance stylein the 15th century by King Matthias. The palace remains in perfect condition,and is famous throughout Europe. Fellegvár (Upper Castle) was built in the13th century on the hill above Visegrád. It played an important role in the city’shistory at times of peace and war alike. You can enjoy the Danube Bend’smost beautiful panorama*** from the terrace of the castle. The third part ofthe monument complex is Solomon’s Tower, a residential fortifi cation built inthe 13th century; today it is a venue for exhibitions. Stay a little longer and paya visit to the Tourist Centre and Yurt Camp on Sibrik Hill, shoot down thesummer and winter bob-sleigh track, have a go at mini golf and join one ofthe countless marked tourist paths. When there’s winter snow, grab your skisand try the ski lift at the nearby Nagyvillám. The neighbouring Park Forestof Pilis is an important hunting range, as well as being popular with hikers.The stretch of the Danube Bend between Esztergom and Visegrád is one of the prettiest in the country. It took thousandsof years for the river to forge its way through the volcanic hills, today known as Visegrád Hill and Börzsöny Mountain,forming an S-shaped valley as it did so. The area had already attracted prehistoric man, probably less for its panoramathan for its fertile ground. It is no coincidence that the conquering Hungarian tribes also chose this site for their fi rstroyal capital. Esztergom (A/4)*** is the “Cradle of Hungary”, its oldest city and its capital for 250 years.Those living on the right-hand side of the Danube often say that the best thing about the left-hand side is the viewacross to the other side of the river. It is true that there are no sights to compete with Visegrád or Esztergom onthe left side. However, it has worthy sights of a different sort – the Gödöllo Hills, Lower Cserhát and GalgaValley, former volcanoes (South Börzsöny, Csovár), a limestone mine at Naszály, the Somlyó Hill of Fót (famousfor its grapes), Danube oxbows with wonderful fauna and even a slice of the Great Plain.
Budapest because:• it is the cultural, political and transportation centre of Hungary;• it is built on both side of the Danube, the great European river that isregistered as a World Heritage panorama;• nature is safeguarded in two national parks and a number of environmentalprotection areas;• it has represented a “multicultural Europe” for centuries – over 200nearby villages are populated by Hungarians, Serbs, Slovaks and Germans(Swabians);• it has a strong artistic and cultural heritage;• there’s always something happening: festivals, concerts, theatre performances,sports competitions, exhibitions, church events, wine celebrationsor handicraft fairs;• there are many outdoor activities to enjoy: trekking, rock climbing, biking,horse riding, golf, rowing, swimming, potholing or fl ying;• its restaurants offer not only Hungarian cuisine – and wine and palinka– but food from all over the world.Don’t hesitate – come to Budapest, the centre of things!There are many ways to explore the city. You can go sightseeing by bus,boat or taxi. You could get a ride from a friend or take a long walk on foot.However, a tram is an especially good option in Budapest. The Danube sidepanorama*** can be best appreciated from tram No 2. Let’s board at theJászai Mari Square terminal on the Pest side of Margaret Bridge (avoidingthe morning or afternoon rush hours) and take a seat next to the window onthe right-hand side. We will soon arrive at Kossuth Square with its statues,memorials and Parliament***, a huge palace in Neo-Gothic style. Afterleaving the square, we’ll proceed to the Danube shore where we can admirethe panorama of Buda, with the churches of Víziváros (Water town) andthe Castle District, where the slim tower of Matthias Church reaches to theskies. On the journey between the historical Chain Bridge*** and the modernElizabeth Bridge, you’ll see the impressive Castle Palace and Gellért Hill’ssteep wall of rock. The Saint Gellért Statue is perched on the side of the hill,and above it sits the Citadel. At the southern foot of the hill, another amazingstructure, the Liberty Bridge, connects the two shores. We’ll alight from thetram and walk over to the Hotel Gellért. Here we can refresh ourselves withthermal water from the fountain beneath the cupola. On the opposite side ofthe river, we can see Corvinus University’s Faculty of Economy and theCentral Market Hall*** with its colourful top.Now let’s take tram No 19 towards Batthyány Square. Try to fi nd a seat onthe right-hand side of the tram for the best views of the Pest panorama,with the Baroque towers of the Downtown Parish Church***, the hotelson the Danube shore, the “Vigadó” building and the boats docking at theriverside. We can see the Hungarian Academy of Science and the Secessionist-style Gresham Palace, which now functions as a luxury hotel. Atthe tram’s terminus, we can study the Parliament building up close, itsdome refl ected in the water, and stroll around the square before takingthe underground to Deák Square. From here, let’s take continentalEurope’s oldest underground train line (which has been running since1896) to Andrássy Avenue and Heroes’ Square***. There are regularstops at which we can emerge to enjoy some of the sights along theroad above.Castle Hill*** deserves at least a full day. If you allow enough time, you canvisit the most important sights like Matthias Church***, the Fishermen’sBastion*** and the former Royal Palace***. However, we can also takea walk around the narrow streets with their Baroque houses that wereoriginally built in medieval times. After stopping at the Telephone Museumand exploring the Labyrinth, we can have an ice cream or a cake at thetraditional Ruszwurm Café.To get a proper feel for the city’s colour and energy, we should taketram Nos 4–6 and cross the 4km-long Great Boulevard (Nagykörút)from Margaret Bridge to Petofi Bridge. If you prefer a less-conventionalform of transport, try taking the Funicular up Castle Hill, or go into theBuda Hills via the Cogwheel Railway, the Chairlift or the Children’sRailway. If you fancy travelling by water, we could take a boat tripto Margaret Island***, one of the biggest parks in the city.There are many cultural attractions for us to enjoy. The Museumof Fine Arts*** and the Hungarian National Gallery*** have arange of top-notch exhibitions, and there are many annual eventslike the Spring and Autumn festivals, the Island Festival and theCelebration of Crafts. Listen to a performance at the Opera House ora concert at the Palace of Arts. Alongside the main venues, there area number of small theatres, stages, clubs and underground pubs. LisztFerenc Square and Ráday Street are good places to start.The city has some other rare and special features. It is, for example, the onlymetropolis in the world where you’ll fi nd 80 hot-water springs. The thermalwater has been feeding spas here for almost 2,000 years. The Rudas***,Király (Royal) and Császár (Imperial) spas – with their splendid cupolas– are among the few surviving examples of Turkish architecture. The Neo-Baroque Széchenyi Thermal Baths*** – located in City Park (Városliget)***– is the biggest spa complex in Europe; however, you also shouldn’t missthe Secessionist-style Gellért Baths***. There are many options for thosewho prefer some active recreation. Armed with helmet and torch, you canvisit some dripstone and aragonite caves***; alternatively, you might takea pleasant walk in the Buda Hills. There are several tourist trails and lovelyparks like Margaret Island, City Park and Shipyard (Hajógyári) Island. Theseplaces can be reached on foot or along cycling routes. After you’ve strolledin the parks, you can go shopping on Váci Street*** or at the Westend CityCenter shopping hall. Finish the day off with a coffee at a café terrace or amore substantial meal at one of the many enticing restaurants.

“Ideal Location, accomodations so-so”
Pros: This apartment is located on Vaci Street, which was ideal for walking to all the major sights and near restaurants and a bakery where we picked up pastries for breakfast every morning. The apartment fit our simple needs with a comfortable bed, small sitting area, small kitchen and bathroom, TV, free wi-fi. It's located on a central enclosed space between buildings, so it is very quiet. There was an entry to one other apartment from this area, but there was quite a bit of security to get to the apartment door, so it felt very safe. Cons: The washing machine was either broken or we weren't operating it correctly (because the instructions were in Polish) and half of the window coverings were not in optimal condition so, though the windows were covered, it made the place appear shabby. The ground floor entry is from a large, clean, concrete area hemmed in by buildings and this is the area the apartment windows look out on - no view. We are generally satisfied with simple, adequate accommodations, but if you want a little more comfort and some kind of view, I would not recommend this for you.
Hello, Thank you for your stay at my apartment and the review after. We are fixing the washing machine and put an English manual beside it. Sorry, but we thought that it has simple programs with different temperatures so everyone will find out which suits the best. The curtain is also fixed already. :) Best regards, Barbara
