4.6/5 based on 17,000+ reviews on the web
Based on the British House of Parliament, Residence Parliament serves as one of the city's most beautiful landmarks with its recognizable neo-Gothic architecture. This site is the center of government activity, but it is also a magnificent domed structure and one of Europe's oldest legislative houses. This building was inaugurated in 1896 on the 1,000th anniversary of Hungary. Stroll along the Danube to take in views of the structure's exterior before entering. Walk up the building's intricate staircase and through its central hall, pausing to notice details like historic sculptures, stained-glass works, ornamental mosaics, and the Holy Crown of Hungary, which has been displayed here since 2000.

  • Poor breakfast, awfully small room, skimpy hotel... we've asked for extra toilet paper and got none... later we got stuck without any, so we had to purchase. If you're masochistic, go to this hotel. But if you love yourselves, find another place to accommodate.
