Budapest? Beautiful! Entertaining! Hospitable! But don’t just take our word for it. A recent survey of more than 130,000 international travellers saw beautiful Budapest receive more five-star ratings than any other European city – nearly 60% of non continental visitors giving the maximum rating.
It’s wonderfully priced too. Budapest beating its rivals ‘price per night’ by more than 4 Euros. Little surprise that the Guardian rates it as one of Europe’s ‘best value cities’.
As The Lonely Planet Guide says, “Hungary is a heart-stealer”. And she will steal your heart in all manner of ways. From elegant cafe culture, a vibrant arts and music scene to imposing architecture and a rich cultural legacy there’s something for everyone. Beguiling Budapest. They say that although you may leave Budapest, there’s a part of her that will never leave you.
Complex, confident and curious – the ‘Paris of Central Europe’. A perfect blend of Western European luxury and exotic central European heritage.
