Budapest

sunny 26 °C
View The Crazy Train on lucysarah's travel map.

OH DEAR.
On the train we realised the hostel we had booked was far out of the city. Hastilly, we booked another hostel from the station. What a mistake. The 'hostel' was actually university accomodation, the man at the desk forcefully suggested we look at the room before we paid. He was right, it was shit. However, it was late in the day, and we couldnt risk not having anywhere to sleep.
We went to cheer ourselves up at a posh looking restaurant. We thought it was going to be amaaazing when everyone in the restaurant practically tutted when we walked in, smelling of smoke from the dirty train and in our sweaty travelling clothes. The goulash soup was amazing, but the main courses were clearlya microwaved and tasteless.
After a pretty sleepless night in the dirty hostel (in our sleeping bags, we didn't trust the sheets) we checked out and began our search for somewhere better. We found the amazing garibaldi guesthouse right next to Parliament in a beautiful area. We have a kitchen, bathroom, balcony, bedroom and hall aaaaaaalllll to ourselves. Words cannot describe the decor, will upload photos later.

Spent most of the day on a boat tor on the danube to margret island in the sunshine. Hysterical recorded tour guides, Buda and Pest. We realised Budapest was not as scummy as we first thought. Our first hostel was in a bad area.

We went to Szentendre yesterday, a little old town with lots of narrow twisting streets and cafes.

It's hard to find good accommodation in Budapest, isn't it? Last time I stayed there I succeeded to find a good and cheap hotel in the city centre. I paid 15 EUR per night with my wife. If you are planning to visit Budapest, don't forget about this hotel: http://uk.video.yahoo.com/watch/3049615/8703000
Enjoy your stay!
