J's Guide to Budapest

Happy Tuesday all, we hope you had a lovely relaxing weekend and didn't eat too much chocolate or drink too much - were guilty for both. So back on the detox for a short week ahead. 

At the beginning of the month J went to Budapest to explore the city. See below everything you need to know about Budapest and everything you need to be doing there. 

So with my Aspinal of London red backpack and passport cover packed and Zara cat eye sunnies in hand. I was excited to see what Budapest had in store for me. 


I wasn't very familiar with this city so it took a lot of research to perfect the trip. Im not going to lie I wasn't expecting a lot out of this city - but I was in for a shock. There is so much to do, so  much to see and amazing architecture and culture surrounding. It was the perfect long weekend escape plus more reasonable than 1 night in the cotswolds. 



There was a huge variety of hotels to choose from at very reasonable rates, however I opted for The Corinthia Budapest being one of my favourite hotels in London - I was curious to check it out. It didn't disappoint - from the moment of arrival. All the hotels have been designed very grand and traditional which instantly make you feel at home once arriving. We were welcomed into the reception area. I haven't seen one quite this grand and dramatic,

think marble floors, high ceilings, LOTS of gold, staircases of dreams and florals to match. I was already impressed.

🔑 Its definitely a vibe 🔑

We didn't waste any time - straight to the room to unpack a quick glass of champagne and we were out in the -3 weather which was actually warmer than London that weekend.

We kept a tight schedule and wanted to get some culture in for the afternoon so we headed to PEST to the Citadella - a U shaped structure fortress built in 1851. The views were amazing - and instead of getting a cab we decided to walk down the 45 minutes worth of stairs to really take in the culture and the history behind the Citadella.

💦Back to the hotel for a quick spa before dinner 💦

Known as the best spa in Budapest and it was AMAZING. Exactly what we needed after a 4am wake up - even if you just wanted a relaxing spa getaway this would be a perfect choice to rejuvenate.
