Hotel/Itinerary Advice For Budapest

Jump to last reply

Hello All,

I'm new here. My husband and I recently relocated to Austria and are loving exploring Europe. This summer my in-laws are coming for a visit and while they are here, they have expressed the desire to go to Budapest. We're not familiar with the city as we haven't had a chance to visit yet. My father in law isn't in the best physical condition and extensive walking can be difficult for him. Given that, we are hoping to find a hotel that is a short walk to the major sites and such, or that is simply a great location for accessing what the city has to offer. We will mostly be planning to visit historical sights and museums. Any info, tips, advice, etc would be most helpful.

    You should probably pick a hotel that is right on the Danube on the Pest side. There is a nice walk along the river with a lot of cafes and restaurants as well as some nicer hotels.

    Be aware that while Pest is fairly flat the Buda side is quite hilly and much higher than the Pest side and there are a lot of major sights there. You can get taxis or a bus to get to the Buda side but you definitely want to go since that's where the Castle and historical museum are, as well as the Fisherman's Bastion and great views out over the city and Parliament building.

    Even the Buda side sights - esp the castle - can have many different levels and I doubt (but don't know) they have elevators. You want to make sure your FIL has one of those canes that can expend into a seat in case he needs to sit down in the middle of sightseeing.

    A boat ride (esp one in the evneing when everything is lit up) and a bus tour during the day might be a good choice for him - but realize he might not be able to get off the bus at all the stops if he can't keep up. Taxis are not expensive so you might want to rely on those more.
