Reviews for Budapest hen activities

Male Strip Show

The strip show was great & our guide was the nicest. The only issue was an incredibly rude bar lady at the venue.

Alice Murray
Wine Tasting

Very good facilities and location. Wine expert was lovely and very good at explaining everything, this was a highlight of our weekend!

Emma Wood
Nightclub Entry

Very good

Edward Rangedara
Outdoor Go Karting

This was a lot better than we initially expected. We did have any issue where 2 carts stopped working so the guys felt left out. But, overall it was good.

Food and Drink

When in Budapest, there’s only one thing for it and that’s to try Gulyás, also known as – Goulash. This traditional Hungarian dish is served as a stew with beef, onion, paprika, tomatoes and pepper as the classic base. Most Goulash dishes are served with white bread to soak up the broth!

Heading to a restaurant in Budapest is a must whilst in the city. If you’re after some sophisticated dining whilst in Budapest then why not try one of the up-market restaurants such as Caviar & Bull, Babel Budapest or Aszu Restaurant. Just make sure you book a table for one of these as they’re very popular!

If you're in need of a pick-me-up in the day, or you’re looking for your next caffeine fix, then head to The Goat Herder or the FLAT WHITE.

The Goat Herder serves up some pretty impressive coffee and has a selection of quick-bites to chow down before you move on and explore more of the city.

The FLAT WHITE is another fab coffee shop serving up great espresso, tasty breakfast eats and delicious cakes to boot! Sit down at a table and spend an hour here to re-charge before you head out onto the streets of Budapest again.

For a great spot to have a drink why not head to one of Budapest’s many ruin bars and gaze upon the marvellous décor of these derelict buildings. For a swanky and sophisticated drink head to Bar Pharma, Budapest’s best cocktail bar and try a range of different cocktails that won’t disappoint your taste buds!

Budapest Nightlife

When in Budapest you’ve got to head to one, or a few, of the ruin bars. These bars have set up permanent residence in disused and derelict buildings, using the shells and turning them into amazing venues.

Many have inner courtyards, and where the ceiling has dilapidated it’s created an inner sanctum perfect to watch the stars from below with a drink.

With most of these ruin bars having the classic shabby chic décor, mis-matched furniture and some great music to boot they’re a popular choice for tourists and locals alike for either a quiet drink, or the end to a fab night out in Budapest.

Why not head to something truly unique and try a thermal bath spa party in Budapest. Get your group along and remember to bring those swimming costumes as the baths open up for the evening ready for party goers to descend.

If you’re looking for a quiet night out there’s many bars to grab a table at and get a bottle, or few, of wine and enjoy the evening without the music and dancing!

The Best Time to Visit Budapest

Naturally, when the weather is a little cooler, and bear in mind Budapest can get very cold, prices come down for accommodation as well as the restaurants and clubs being that little bit quieter. Everything will still be in walking distance but just remember to pack a thick coat, scarf and gloves if you want to do some sight-seeing!
With summer comes more tourists and a hike in prices, but this is true of most European cities. You’ll be able to walk around the city with ease as the sunshine warms up the streets. Even head on a bike tour and soak up the sunshine as you explore both Buda and Pest. It’s totally up to you which season you’d like to come in!

Getting around

The Metro system is the quickest and easier way to get around this city as it’s well connected to every corner. The metro system in Budapest is the second oldest in the world after London. You can even hop on the BKK which is a ferry services that runs along the river!

Budapest is a lovely city to walk around in, especially in the warmer months, as there’s something new to discover on every corner. Take a stroll along the river and cross one of the bridges from Buda into Pest, or Pest into Buda!

Taxi’s are easy enough to get and after a night out this may be your best option if walking to your accommodation isn’t a viable option!
