  • A shopkeeper suggested we visit, and we were glad we did. Found some great shoes for hard to fit feet. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. Clean rest rooms and a great food court. Y...  read more »
  • הקניון מכיל כמות גדולה מאד של חנויות בגדלים שונים וכמות מצומצמת של מסעדות (מזון מהיר ורגילות). ההגעה לקניון בעזרת המטרו די בעייתית (מרחק חצי ק"מ בערך) ולכן פחות נוחה.. 
  • Personally I prefer the west end even if the arena is not bad, medium to large business center, lot of shops! The food corner offers a McDonald's, a burger king and kfc! A lot of calories where meter square ^ ^ to get there we took the subway but you have to walk 10 minutes to return the taxi which cost us only 1400f until oktogon

  • Oriasi meretu hely. Vasarlas eseten sokat kell setalni. A gyorsettermek szinvonala es minosege siralmas. Fenti kavezokat ajanlom. Mozijegy vasarlashoz mindig sokat kell varni.
  • It's location is somewhat strange as you have to walk from Keleti railway station for about 5 minutes. The layout is easy to understand and it has some great stores.
  • Great shopping experience, the place has electronic boards to give you directions to specific shops so finding something is really easy. It has underground parking if you're travelling by car, and easy bus access if like me you were just visiting. Eating there is vary viable, we visited both Starbucks and Okay Italia while we were there, great service at both.
  • One of the best shopping malls in the city. It has an IMAX cinema and full Tesco hypermarket and tonns of other stores inside. During winter there's an ice skating rink in front of the building. Only disadventage that it's not easily accessible by public transit. It takes like 5 minute walk from the closest metro station. But it's a great place for parking our cars for free.
  • Szép nagy pláza, és van Sportdirect :)
