Budapest is wonderful. I spent a week there and wished it could be more. I stayed at the Hotel Castle Garden… inexpensive, just outside the gate to the upper cathedral/castle where you can catch the small free tram that takes you down to the other side of the river. Everything felt safe and walkable.
I felt very safe in Budapest. It’s an amazing city! I was there in April for two weeks doing some volunteer work. I had to ride the bus at all hours….3:30am, midnight…sometimes alone and sometimes meeting up with others. I never had an issue and never felt unsafe. The Hop On/Off tour gave me a good overall history of the city. I stayed at Kalvin Palace, basic room with private bath. It was centrally located just a block from University so always foot traffic outside. Easy to walk to several places.
Budapest is such a lovely place!! go to the thermal baths, the bus routes are really easy to navigate with google maps, also the city boat tours are lovely, in the evening definitely try out the ruin bars! they are so fun and social.
Definitely go to the restaurant/bar Mazel Tov in Budapest! We also really liked taking a tour of the Parliament and going to the top of St. Stephen’s Basilica (need very minimal cash as a donation to the church to go to the top, but so worth it!!)
I loved the Fisherman's Bastion. It is well worth the time and right next to Matthias Church making it a 2-fer. The views are great too. You can walk down Castle Hill to the Funincular and definitely walk across the Széchenyi bridge to Pest. I'm a vegetarian and Budapest was rough for me. Neither the food nor the service were exceptional at the New York Cafe but the architecture is incredible and it's an easy stop if you are checking out Andrassy Ave. Széchenyi baths are incredible, especially after a long flight.
In Budapest, go to Massolit café on nagy diofa utca. Go visiting the Kerepesi cemetery, for free and in fact a real museum with hundreds of sculptures. For lunch go to Araz restaurant or Kiosk or Monk's bistro and chose the napi menü (lunch formula) if you have no allergies and orthorexia. Don't go to the big synagogue but to the little one on Kazinczy utca. Much cheaper and much nicer. And go bathing at Dandár bath and not where all tourits go.
Budapest is great for a short visit. Loads to see and do, but not so big that you get lost, or wear yourself out trying to see everything. Pack a swimsuit for the baths!
Things to do: I loved Budapest! It's beautiful! Parliament is a must see and stunning at night all lit up. I went at sunset and got amazing pictures. The fisherman's bastion is honestly one of my favorite places I've visited in Europe. Looks like a fairy tale. The gellert bath house was super fun. Spent half a day there enjoying the mineral baths and got massages. I did this on our last day to recover from all the walking. Food: As to food, I enjoyed the Gesztenyepure (chestnut puree with whipped cream)

Recommendations: Budapest is beautiful! I recommend crossing the bridge to have a look on the Pest side of the river. It’s also quite cheap city.
I have some very personal recommendations. Must see: Szimpla kert is a type of romkocsma if you google "romkocsmák Budapest" you will find similar ones but Szimplakert is indeed one of the best but Instant is also nice or Gozsdu udvar!! Very unique kind of chill places are these. Margitsziget (very beautiful park) I really recommend Parlament! Night also! So pretty! Hike up to the liberty statue (15 min from Parlament) especially amazing at night. Easy hike 10 min. But beautiful view! Liberty Bridge. Also very cool! Belgrád rakpart! -very nice walk around the river with historical details If u like beer and wine its quite cheap in some places (not the tourist places) A good Tokaji wine worth to try! One of the best wines in Europe! Eat: Gulasch soup, kürtöskalács (chimney cake)
Itinerary: Amazing Best city in eastern europe. I love the weather . 4 days is enough Things to do: Parties night life here is amazing. Shopping is cheap. Food: Goulas and langos are the best to try here. Food with Paprikas as well Safety: Budapest is a safe city but you need to be careful anyways everywhere Budget: 200 euros is enough to spend 4 days in Budapest everything is so cheap and nice Accommodation: Hostel can make you cost less of course and great experience Recommendations: Try Langos! Go to Buda Castle. Go to thermal bath here
Things to do: Old Town, Buda Castle, Marguerita “Island”, Terror Museum (very chocking...), Széchenyi Thermal Baths (so good, I think this one is the most popular, to relax a little bit, but there are many more thermal baths in the city), The Parliament, Saint Stephen’s Basilica, Vajdahunyad Castle, Heroes Square, Széchenyi Chain Bridge (connecting Buda and Pest). To eat, I recommend Napfényes Ízek, Vegan Love (more junk food) and Kozmosz (cozy lovely restaurant)
I had the best time in Budapest! I hired a local guide recommended by a friend - ended up being the best idea. Oh—and used couch surfing to meet up with other travelers and make friends. I stayed in a nice hotel in the Jewish quarter though. It was amazing and I can’t wait to get back. I felt safe the whole time. I also used their “Uber” service called Bolt which was recommended to me by locals. Made my life a lot easier.
