I wouldn't waste your time in Budapest going to the Ice Bar, it is expensive and you pay for nasty tasting drinks and there was 0 atmosphere in the place. I would not go again. Worth it for fun pictures but that's it.

I paid £20 for entry and a cocktail for 2 people. The coats are vile. The 'bar area' was smaller than my hotel room and the 'cocktail' was served in a shot glass. A total rip off.

I was able to take some cool pictures. Like the others have said this is basically a gimmick and you are paying for the experience. The drinks are very small and the bar itself is also very small and it is nothing more than a gimmick. There are definitely better places to see while in Budapest.

Whatever you do dont go there. 3600 huf for an "ice room", that was smaller than my hotel room and a cocktail that was smaller than an average shot(and tasted terrible). waste of time and money

This is a gimmick bar. If you wish to go to a bar where you can take some cool photos (literally!) and have a "different" experience then great. However don't expect much more - the drinks are awful and the prices high!

What a disappointing place. Floor was absolutely filthy. Glasses looked like they weren't freshly made - clean? Tiny. Poor value. Do not recommend and would def not return.

Cool concept, however the bar itself is quite small, there's not much to look at, and the "cocktail" you get is not worth the money. However, during my Budapest visit I got a horrible case of heat stroke. I went in here to recover, and in that regard it was 100% worth it.

Basically me and the mrs paid £10 each to have a shot in a room that is no bigger than my bathroom. There's a friendly lad on the main shopping street. We chatted said we were interested then he took us into the shop. There's a deceptive door behind him that says "Entrance" but no this is just a front.... More

Save your money! Completely over priced 'cocktail' which is nothing more than half a shot of vodka with a splash of fruit juice. Tiny box room consisting of two ice chairs and a few boring ice sculptures. The staff are really friendly, but save your money and your time. Be aware, if you enter the shop near the McDonalds, the... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
