What is Budapest like in July?

I'm considering a trip to Budapest mid July. I'd appreciate viewpoints from those who has visited around this time of year. I'm concerned it might be unbearably hot and overrun with tourists. Would it be better to wait until September/October?

It can be unbearable hot and humid. I can "do" heat -- it was the humidity that did me in

It can be hot and humid in Budapest, as it can be in London, New York, or many other places. I would not characterize July in Budapest as overly humid though. Some days, yes, but on the whole, not really. Of course you could "hit" a bad week. To be sure, September weather is less likely to be hot and humid, but it could happen then too.

As for tourists, Budapest does not get so "overrun" as some other places.

I visited Budapest in September and thought the weather was perfect. We needed a light jacket during the day. Don't forget to have the goulash and cabbage rolls - the cuisine is wonderful.

We visited last year in August...hot and humid as on the East Coast of the US....no hotter/no more humid.
It certainly was in no way "overrun" with tourists like Rue Cler, the Cinque Terre, Florence, etc...

I was in Budapest last year the last week of July. It was REALLY hot and sunny, around 90 degrees.
People were walking around with umbrellas to shade them from the sun.
But the city was still delightful.
I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel and the Danube View rooms were fantastic. I highly recommend it.

Just returned from 5 days in Budapest. Three of the days were almost unbearable hot. Most public buildings, i.e. museums, restaurants don't have adequate air-conditioning so sometimes there is no relief but in your hotel room. I would go in September or October if I had the choice.
