Budapest offers 'luxury for less'

26 Nov 2008

The Hungarian national tourist office has invited people looking for a cheap city break to visit Budapest, claiming that the capital offers 'luxury for less'.

Holidaymakers can eat at gourmet restaurants, stay at five-star hotels and enjoy spa treatments in Budapest for a 'fraction of the cost' of other European cities, according to the tourist office.

One of the city's popular luxury options is the St George Residence, a five-star hotel situated in the Buda Castle district.

This part of Budapest is rich in history, boasting quaint cobbled streets, Unesco world heritage sites and medieval buildings.

There are a number of establishments in the city where visitors can eat out without blowing their budget, such as the Apetito restaurant in the Castle district or the Spoon cafe and lounge, which is situated on the banks of the River Danube.

During the Christmas period, visitors to Budapest can test their ice-skating skills in the city park or, for a more relaxing experience, head to centres such as the Mandala day spa, which offers a range of treatments.
