I' m considering traveling throughout Hungary in a rented car. Has anyone done a trip like this in the past? I don't speak Hungarian and I was wondering about communication problems. Thinking about going in September (hopefully, after most of the tourists have left). Any thoughts and or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
We are two black British and American friends visiting Budapest for the first time. Would like to visit Pecs during our stay, but wanted to know how safe it is for foreigners...meaning black people to get get around the city? What should we do and shouldn't do so as not to get unwanted attention or irritate the locals? We are fun and outgoing ladies and just want to enjoy our break, but another friend had a not so good experience when she visited with her white boyfriend and that has left us feeling somewhat anxious.
Is it best to travel by train or bus? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
My partner is Hungarian and I should visit with him, but he gets so protective when people look at us (me especially) that I wanted to do this trip without him...could do without a bodyguard, so hence I'm going with a friend instead. He knows I'm going away, but I am not telling him where to until we arrive there. I want him to know that I love him enough to visit his country on my own and he wouldn't need to be so protective of me when I visit with him. Any advise on a fun trip would be appreciated.
My wife and I are going to rent a car in Budapest and drive to Zagreb. Of course I don't know Budapest and not excited about driving in a fairly big city and not knowing where I'm going. Where would the best place to rent a car to get on the highway to Croatia, i.e air port or down town.
I'm going to Budapest with my own car and I want to find a place to park it free like in a parking of the hotel or on the street like the locals, should be free overnight (it's about one night only).
From the following what would you recommend, given the area, as close to city center and as safety for the car:
1. Metro Hotel
2. Senator Apartments
3. Vila Hotel Kristal
4. Toscana Apartments
Other recommendations welcomed as long as it is a budget option (under €80/room, incl.parking and breakfast)
