Budapest in Style for 60th Birthday celebration

Jump to last reply

I will be turning 60 in November and despite two trips to Europe this year (French Riviera in May and upcoming trip to Tuscany in Sept) I would really like to do something special in celebration of this special birthday. Budapest has been on my radar and I have four days off over Thanksgiving (can extend my time). With a companion, we could do 4 nights once there for around $1000 each - maybe $1100 including 4 or 5 star hotels. I have a friend who is interested in going. My question is: does anyone have experience with hotels in Budapest and recommends a particular one? I would like an Old World rather than modern - with the lavish lobbies and elegant rooms.
I would appreciate any hotel recommendations (I have the guide book and have been looking at pictures online but a personal experience is so much more helpful). Also any particularly good coffee houses, shops, etc. that you personally enjoyed.

Thank you!
