I just came back from my trip to Budapest.
Budapest as you surely know is a wonderful city, one of the greatests european metropolis, now vibrant and modern with many beautiful places to visit, spas, islands on the Danube with many clubs and parties and reachable in only 1 1/2 hours by plane.
But let's stick to the subject that this thread is about. Going there to get dental care at lower cost.
This is only a report of how I did it. you can find many other options if you wish and do many other things on the city, I'll only give you details about the low cost travel, stay and dental care. to get there
Swiss airlines has every weekend cheap flights to different cities in Europe.
You have to be registered on their web site www.swiss.com
and you'll get an email every wednesday at 8:00 with the offers for the weekend. If you are not registered you'll not get the mails and the offers and those are not accesible directly on the web site.
Every weekend there are many destinations and allways one at low cost ( 150-170 CHF ) Budapest is featured often for flights from Zürich.
Also Budapest is a low cost destination from Basel on the web site www.swiss.com
, no need of registration, it will cost CHF 120 but you have to reserve in advance ( some 2-3 weeks in advance to get the low price ). where to stay
Thanks to flow23 I got an appartment in Budapest.
This is an studio, with a bedroom, kitchen, fully equiped kitchen, bathroom with a bathtube and washing machine.
The cost is 45 EUR per day reserved it through their web site www.budapesthotelsearch.info
via e-mail: email@example.com
phone: +36-30-397-5675, but they also have 2 and 3 room appartments if you need more space.
The appartment is modern, comfortable, fully equiped and clean, up to swiss standards, you will have a pleasant stay there.
They speak english, ask for Deli Zita, she will take care of you.
This is a cost lower than even the Hostels and you get a full appartment that is great for long stays you can feel at home there. the appartment i took was the studio C in the center of the city, at the Wesselnyi utca 12
, just to the side of the Sinagoge and a walking distance of the main attractions.
Here are views of the appartment and the street outside
If you wish to save on transport or visit the city by bike you can find a bike rental at Wesselényi utca 13, just the next street from the appartment.
A typical Hungarian restaurant is just in front called "Blue Rose" The dentists
So went to a 24h a day dentist establishment at the Akácfa utca 13
it's called Haifa Dent www.haifadent.hu
, tel +36 20 263 72 62
This is just at 4 blocks away from the appartment.
They are fully equiped and have a team of young and also experienced dentists.
They work 24/7, so you can just came and get an appointment for saturday or sunday on your weekend trip.
I had two tooth made, one normal filling costed 7000 HUF ( 47 CHF ) and a crown filling costed 9000 HUF ( 60 CHF ) I was treated by Dr. Rózsa Rétháthi, she speaks good english and is pretty too
You can reach her to the +36 30 316 11 42 or contact her to firstname.lastname@example.org
to organise your visit when she is on her shift. other activities to save money on the trip
If your goal was to save money with this trip you could also save visiting the beauty saloons and or medical massage parlors that abound on the area.
I went to one of them at Wessélnyi utca 30, just by the place where the dentists are.
a men's haircut costed 2100 HUF (14 CHF) and a pedicure 2500 ( 17 CHF ) there is an spa with Thai massage just in front of the appartment, but I'll advice you to go to the real spas at the Margrit island, but well that wouldn't be cheap
So that's it I hope this information is useful for you all
