BE CAREFUL IF YOU GO TO MAMBO NIGHT CLUB IN BUDAPEST! I DRUNK TWO BEERS, THE GIRL WHO CAME TO ME ASKED A COCKTALE. I CHECKED the pricelis, it was about 40 EUR.At the end i wanted to pay the bill and they asked 400 EUR!!!!!!! Two bodyguard came with me to the bankomat outside and they forced me to pay the money.i went to the police station, but they did not care with me. So i think, better if you don't go there!!!!

few years back a schoolmate (we were there for a school trip) paid the equivalent in forint of 80 euros instead of 8 to get inside a club; it was only her, but i remember they tried to cheat us serving Martini with water at the bar.Obviously i told them and got pissed off for that.
Be careful.

Me and my buddy went to a strip club and you had to pay a shitload to get in and if you wanted the girls to dance you had to buy a drink which was like 20 euro a peice.

Wow! Does anyone have anything good to say about Budepest? I am going there this summer, and would love some info on the best place(s) to stay. I'm on a budget - so 20 euro/night is max.

And thanks for the info on "nightclubs"!

I went to a club (don't know the name anymore) with my captain and some other sailors and captains when we were with our inland-ships in Budapest. Also the same thing happened. Only difference that we were fighting with the bodyguards and ofcourse did not pay at all.

Do not forget Budapest is a very nice city but these thing can happen like in any other city. Do not blame a whole city for what happened in one small place.

Despite that accident the city is truly lovely. My impression is that it's a city between two worlds: the western and the eastern .

Lovely food, and when i came there it was incredibly cheap (5 euros per meal at restaurants beer included).
The women are beautiful and the city has a lot of wide and nice streets. Our experience was helped by a nice weather in April.
