Security

Security Level: 2 
Petty crime is the security concern that is most likely to affect travelers.  Demonstrations and protests occur; however, they are generally peaceful and pose a threat primarily through their ability to cause travel disruptions.  Corruption is a concern among Hungarian police forces. The threat of terrorism is lower in Hungary than in other European countries; however, the possibility of an attack cannot be discounted entirely.

Hotel Accommodations

Budapest is the favored place to stay offering a good range of hotel options with nearby shopping and dining advantages. The selection ranges from luxury accommodations near the Danube River to business-minded hotels catering to all budgets. Western chains, as well as independent chains, are being snapped up quickly. Cancellations at many hotels tend to be reasonable for this event. In certain cases, hotels ask for a 14-day advance cancellation with full stay penalty. Many hotels do not require a prepayment but may require a minimum two night’s length of stay. Terms and conditions vary at each hotel. Lower room categories tend to be reserved first. We encourage you to book your rooms early and read the booking conditions.
