About the Author

Robert Smyth is a Budapest-based British journalist who hails from the River Mersey directly across from Liverpool. He has been living in Budapest for around 15 years during which time he’s seen certain aspects of the city change beyond recognition, but can still find enough old world and quirky charm to keep him there. He holds a degree in Economics from the UK, which he followed up with an MBA at Budapest’s former Karl Marx University only to find that writing holds more appeal than the world of business. He has written print and online guides respectively for the Blue Guides and Whatsonwhen; he also writes columns on wine tasting for the local Englishlanguage press and is Business New Europe’s correspondent for Hungary. When not writing about traveling or wine, he likes to travel and taste wine.

Format: Paperback
I was in Budapest for the first time in August for 2.5 days, so I had limited time. I researched a number of books that would help me learn about the city and provide suggestions for what to do, but I found too many books were far too comprehensive, assumed you had a week or more to explore, and included a lot of information that I didn't need. I stumbled upon this book and bought it and it was perfect. In particular, I liked the initial sections which gave a solid but not overwhelming history of the city and its culture and gave broad-brush strokes setting the context about the various parts of the city. Once I arrived, I heavily used the "walking guides" and found them to be very accurate, very well thought out, and very efficient and effective in giving me a real flavor for the various parts of the city. What I really liked is the fact that the walking guides included not just the traditional main sites and locations, but also sprinkled in neighborhood walks and annecdotes that give you a real sense for the city. I highly recommend this book for anyone who will be in Budapest for just a few days but wants to see more and learn more than what you'd get from a typical tour.

I had 1.5 days in Budapest, a city I had been to 10 years ago and was traveling with my mother who had never been. This guide book was perfect. Just enough information to give us options and directions on what to do, without being overwhelming or too detailed. It does get a little confusing moving thru the various sections of the book, but we read it on the plane ride over and had dog-eared the book and were ready to go when we landed!

With this guide, we were able first, to decide what we wanted to see and do, and then how to get there. The walking maps were excellent as was the map of the trolly system . We never had a problem or misstep and felt it did a really nice job of being our guide.

These frommer pcket books are reallly really helpful, specially if you are visiting several countries and traveling light.
The book gives you a good advice on that to do on the days you are in a city, perhaps sometimes I follow / combine the two days in one , not going to all the recomendations but to the ones that sound good or interesting to me.

It wont tell you where to eat, for that just stop to a local place where you see many people seated, check their prices, and kind of food and be happy and open to new foods.
