Budapest, the capital of Hungary, offer good sightseeing for tourists. I just return from a three days luxury travel to Budapest and in below article I’ll give you an overview of this city.
First let me answer to the popular question “Is Budapest better than Vienna?”. I like more Budapest than Vienna because superb views of the Danube. Also, I found nice luxury hotels in Budapest along the River with breathtaking views and outstanding services. And I spend less in Budapest than in Vienna…
For this article, Luxury Travel in Budapest, I choose to stay three nights in three different luxury hotels in Budapest:
Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest, Sofitel Budapest Chain Bridge and Boscolo Budapest – Autograph Collection (you can read below my reviews for each of them). I select those luxury hotels based on the best reviews and ratings and also availability.
Isn’t impossible to visit all top 10 attractions in Budapest in only 3 days as Budapest has its history all around. Of course if the weather is good. Also the food is delicious and you should try both good restaurants and popular ones (like the one from the Central Market Hall).
The currency in Hungary is Forint (1000 Hungarian forints = 4.5051 US dollars). I would not recommend to change USD/EURO at hotel desk because rate exchange is not good. Search for a bank or a specialized stores called Foreign Exchange Bureaus (there are a lot in Budapest)
