Budapest travel advice

I am going on my 1st visit to Hungary in May and was wondering if anyone could tell me how difficult it is going to be to visit Budapest without knowing any of the Hungarian language, and also does anyone know what my chances are of getting any Hungarian paperwork transalated into English while we are there.
Many thanks for your travel advice.

    Budapest is an enchanting city. I have been there 2Xs in the last month. I go with my friends and have no problem at all. I advise buying a one day Hop-on-Off ticket. This gives you a 2hr spin around the entire city. You can see where all the stops are and return to any place which look interesting. Make notes as you go around to get the names of the streets. It's impossible to pronounce anything, so show the names on paper to people to help with directions. Also, don't miss eating at The Spoon, on the waterfront. Excellent dining and perfect views of the castle in the evening. Summertime, roof top bar/dancing. Also, I recommend The Promenade City Hotel on Vaci ute 22. A moderately priced hotel on the pedestrian street, great breakfast, and very friendly. An easy walk to the incredible City Market. (don't miss it!)

    There are very many tourists in Budapest. In such places as restaurants, museums there is information in English. Many people speak English too.
