Hello,

Myself and my wife will be travelling to Prague --> Vienna --> Budapest in September.

Any suggestions as to reasonably priced accommodation in these 3 cities?

What would be the best way to travel starting from Prague?

Also, any recommendation as the "to do".

Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Cheers,
Mike

I stayed in Prague in a guesthouse just outside the city. It was very cheap and very nice. Unfortunately, I dont remember the name of it but I was told to stay anywhere outside the city that has the train station near by. The ride only takes about 10-15 minutes into Prague. If you can at least confirm that the train station/stop is near by, then I would go with that. You will save a lot of money by staying outside the city, although Prague is very very cheap.

In Vienna, we stayed at the Etap hotel, it is chain in Europe that has very affordable rooms. I stayed at Etap hotels all across Europe. They have the basics but they are clean and comfortable. I will check to see if I can find a website for you.

Budapest, I havent been there yet ...

Ok, this is the location we stayed at...it is near (walking distance to the Gasometer, where you can take the metro into the city).

Sorry...it is near the city, if I remember correctly 15 or so minutes away by train. In Vienna, you have to buy/pay for your fare before hand in the machines...no one really checks in the train but if someone does, then there is a big fine if you dont have your ticket. I suggest you get a week pass or so if you are staying long. If I remember correctly, the ticket is also divided into areas, I could be wrong but it is easy to figure out.
