Best Way To Get Around:

Hunor Hotel

This is a surprisingly good hotel on the outskirts of Budapest. There is a good, friendly staff and a special treat in the breakfast buffet-- amazingly delicious fried rice! You need to get directions and be ready to experience walking through rundown socialist housing projects to get to the hotel from the train station.

Memento Statue Park

Getting to the Statue Park is a 90-minute excursion (transfers from strassenbahn/tram to bus) to the hills out of town. The marketing is excellent, but the site itself is quite disappointing. Even with several large, impressive statues, there is not enough to hold your interest more than 30 minutes. The sparse landscaping of the park and bathrooms gives it a real Soviet-era feel. I spent 5 hours total for a visit. Only go if you have a week or so in Budapest. Also note that it's very muddy, so be ready for some dirty clothes if you go in the rain.
