We weren't expecting anything that special with Budapest, but were happily proven wrong. Absolutely stunning city with, especially the view from the top of Buda looking down on the chain bridge. Everything was excellent value for money even in the more upmarket areas. On the down side although the area around the Danube was really great, the rest of the city was a little dull.
Insider Tip:Sparty on a Saturday night is good fun, if you can forget about hygiene/personal space for a night. Pal's hostel is the best place to stay in the city - hotel quality at a hostel price.
