Help with Hungary Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello - my husband and I are going to Hungary in September for 7 nights. He studied in Szeged in college about 10 years ago so most of our trip will be spent there. We've both been to Budapest before, so we don't need to spend any time there. We are thinking of:
- 3 nights in Szeged
- 1 night in Pecs
- 2 nights somewhere around Lake Balaton - would love a town recommendation
- 1 night near Budapest Airport the night before our early flight

We are planning to rent a car at the airport for the entire trip. Plan to use Auto Europe unless someone knows of a better choice in Hungary.

What do you think of the above itinerary? We are toying with perhaps doing 4 nights in Szeged instead and either skipping Pecs (or driving through it on our way to Balaton) or just doing 1 night in Balaton. We like pretty towns and as the parents of a 3 year old - we want to relax. :-) We do not need a full-on spa in Balaton but we would love a place with a sauna.

Any tips on Szeged hotels (or Pecs/Balaton/near Budapest airport) would be great as well. Thinking of the Dom in Szeged because the location looks good and they have a/c and wifi (2 must-haves for us), but some reviews make it sound run down.

Thanks!
