Budapest combines a heady mix of contemporary culture and rich, detailed history. Set either side of the impressive Danube River, it is made up of old, fairytale castles, amazing ornate domed churches, and streets filled with quirky cafes, unique bars, and intimate art galleries. The Parliament building stretches out across the river’s edge, offering a fine example of the city’s architectural wonder, and the Chain Bridge provides a familiar frame to this story-book city. More recently, though, Budapest has soared in popularity for its urban edge and the trendy uprising of Ruin Bars and design-led spaces.

The two sides of Budapest are reflected in its selection of accommodation. On one side, there are a range of historic buildings that have been turned into plush hotels, offering an insight into the opulent lifestyle of Budapest’s past. Then there are the more playful, design-led Budapest accommodation options, including boutique hostels that showcase the city’s youthful energy, tiny guesthouses that give a hat tip to age-old traditions, and cheap apartments that allow visitors to dig deeper into the vibrant culture of Budapest and discover everything the city has to offer at their own pace.
A new trend has emerged in Budapest in recent years, bringing with it a whole new cultural landscape to the city. Ruin Bars are a new breed of hangout where young creative types gather. The seventh district on the Pest side of the Danube is filled with old warehouses and empty apartment blocks that have been turned into hot new venues, imbued with their original raw charm and decorated with a colourful mishmash of design styles. What was once a prominent Jewish Quarter of the city has now been turned into the place to be on a night out, whether you’re looking to try some local beers, meet a few interesting people, or listen to some lively music.
The Ruin Bars are used by locals and tourists alike and are a great way to explore the lifestyle of the city. To make the most of living like a local, make sure you stay in one of our budget apartments in Budapest.
Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport lies 16km away from the city centre, and is well-connected via an airport shuttle bus, the local train networks, or a public bus that travels to the nearby metro station where you can hop on the direct line to the city centre. There are also a number of taxi ranks situated just outside the terminal building.
Visitors also arrive in Budapest by train via the efficient cross-country service that connects all of Eastern Europe’s major cities. For the most part, visitors coming in from neighbouring countries will arrive at the main Keleti Train Station. In addition, it’s location on the Danube means that Budapest is a popular hotspot for cruise stopovers, with ships and ferries sailing in from surrounding cities like Vienna and Belgrade.
Getting around Budapest is a piece of cake thanks to its expansive and well-connected bus and tram services. There are numerous stops throughout the city that cater to all the major hotspots as well as sights and attractions further afield. As well as over ground transport, Budapest also has a very cheap and efficient metro system which has a variety of routes and lines that span the city.
The best way to get around Budapest, though, is by foot or on by bicycle. There are a number of bike hire spots dotted around which provide a great relaxing way to see all that the city has to offer.
