Senses in Warsaw was also awarded a star which marks the city's second starred restaurant. Budapest’s newest one Star, Costes Downtown is now one of five starred restaurants in the Hungarian capital.

Year on year our team of full-time inspectors add to the enormous selection of hotels and restaurants in the guide, in every category of price and style."
