Train from Budapest to Bratislava or Brno

Jump to last reply

I don't usually ask questions here, but I'm stymied even after hours of internet time with Seat61 and other sites. Here is our upcoming itinerary:

Leaving Les Eyzies for Paris October 12 by train. Tickets purchased. Hotel in Paris to be arranged, but not concerned about that.

Flying to Budapest on Air France from CDG on October 13. Tickets purchased.

Spending October 13-18 in Budapest. Hotel booked.

October 18 - we want to leave Budapest by train and head to Bratislava, where we have booked a hotel for two nights, the 19th and 20th. Is there somewhere we can get off the train between Budapest and Bratislava and spend one night in a nice town? I cannot find this anywhere. Are they all direct trains? It doesn't matter to us which train station we leave Budapest from, as long as we can make a stop and then continue on the next day easily to Bratislava. Barring a stop on the way, we will buy tickets to Brno in the Czech Republic, book a hotel there for one night, and then backtrack to Bratislava the next day.

October 21 we will be back in Budapest and take a late afternoon flight to Paris, where we will spend two nights before going home to the Dordogne.

I'm finding it very difficult to get information, even with the Man in Seat 61's help, on where we might hop off the train between Budapest and either Bratislava or Brno. It would ideally be a small town, not another city, but at this point I'm not going to be picky.

Any help is appreciated. I'm not so familiar with this part of Europe and I can muddle by a bit with Slovak and Czech, but Hungarian is a mystery (I do realize there is info in English, and German which I can understand, but there don't seem to be any websites that set it all out clearly in any language I can clearly understand).
