Timings Feb 10, 2007

I land at 19:10 but have no idea how long it will take to check in and reach the Grand Café Oktogon or what time dinner is served in Hungary. Any pointers would be welcome.

Grand Café Oktogon confirmed Apr 5, 2007

I just called this restaurant just to reconfirm our powwow, and to my horror, the manager with whom I settled down all the details some months ago no longer works for this place and when he left, he did not even mention this booking to the management.
Luckily enough, the place was still un-booked, so we will have it for ourselves for sure, with the same conditions.
We will have a shorter version of the menu and everybody will be able to choose from this short menu on the spot. The place is one large hall, which makes it ideal for a large powwow - you can easily walk around and sit down to other tables, etc.

The place is booked for us from 6 pm till midnight, but you may also go there earlier if you like.

Food is normally served until 11 pm, but if there's a large demand, they can extend this to midnight.

Oktogon = tube station Apr 20, 2007

Hola Helena!
Oktogon is just the name of the tube station you have to get out. From there you walk to the restaurants.
Hasta pronto!

restaurants again Apr 20, 2007

Hiya Helena. As I find, Csaba was really considerate when choosing restaurants. Actually, he is doing a professional job as an organiser (Thanks, Csaba.) All three places are quite close to the hotel. As Annette has remarked, Birdland and Grand Café Oktogon are an easy walk from Oktogon tube station, Platán is also just a few stops from there.

Oktogon, etc. Apr 20, 2007

Oktogon is a very central location in Budapest. It's a major crossroads at the intersection of the main boulevard and Andrássy út. Its name comes from its octagonal shape.
This is also a favourite meeting point, given the high concentration of cafés, bars and restaurants in this area.

Grand Café Oktogon is 100 meters from here, Birdland is at the far end of Liszt Ferenc tér (3 minutes from Oktogon). Platán is justaround the corner from the hotel, so it's next to the City Park.

Please read the relevant powwow pages or conference session pages for very detailed instructions on how to get to these places.

In the hotel lobby there will be a large city map pinned on a message board where all of these places will be clearly indicated.

info Apr 20, 2007

Hi Csaba,

If possible can you provide me with instructions how to get to the places directly from the Corinthia? It will be easier for me as I'm not staying in the Conference hotel and it might get confusing...

Thanks a lot.
