    Worth to stay


    I stayed around 1 month in this hotel until I moved to my flat. I enjoyed everyday of it because of the perfect location in Margit island in the middle of Danube. My room was very comfortable and the service was great. I recommend this hotel if you don't have a tight budget.

    Unique Quality: The breakfast, lunch and dinner which I tried many times were so satisfactory. One important advantage of this hotel is the spa facilities. There is a thermal pool, a swimming pool, jakuzi, sauna and steam bath available to hotel residents. It was so relaxing after coming from work and resting in the thermal bath during my long stay.

    Directions: The entrance of the hotel is closer to Arpad bridge rather than Margit bridge.

  • Lovely old Hotel


    This is the sister Hotel to the Danubius Thermal located on Margaret Island, as the name suggests, its a bit grander than the Thermal and older. Guests can use all the Spa facilities at the Danubius Thermal, the Grand is just a few steps walk away, the two Hotels are linked via and underground tunnel.

    Unique Quality: We stayed in a superior room, but from what we saw, the standard rooms at the Grand, don't look as good as those at the newer, Thermal Hotel, having said that, the lounges and Restaurants is more oppulent and the Dining Terrace outside is beautiful.
    A very attractive Hotel set in beautiful parkland and with the added bonus of the Spa and Medical Centre at the Thermal Hotel, next door.

    Directions: On Margaret Island

  • Pampering in the Centre of the Danube


    Located on Margaret Island, a small island in the center of the Danube River.
    Stayed here twice, standard rooms are nice, spacious and clean and have a balcony, Breakfast which was typical continental. Officially a 4* Hotel and is worthy of the 4* status.
    Not much to do on the Island itself, but there is lovely parkland just outside the Hotel and the City Centre is a short bus ride away.

    Unique Quality: This Hotel is outstanding because of the Health Spa, Medical & Cardiac Center, Dental Clinic, Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Eye Surgery Clinic and Beauty Salon.
    The Spa is free to Hotel Guests and uses the Local Thermal spring water in its pools and jaccuzi's.

    Directions: On Margaret Island

    Very comfortable but far


    I was staying at this hotel which is in the "Margaret Island" area. It's a very big and classy hotel, the rooms are quit big and comfortbale

    The only disadvantage is that is located far from the city and the historical and touristic center. I always had to take 2 buses to go to Budapest and took me 30 minutes approximately

    Expensive Hotel


    Recently bought up by Danubius, this establishment shares spa facilities with its sister hotel the Thermal Hotel Margitsziget . They are connected by an underground tunnel. The Grand has a slightly more pleasant atmosphere and bigger, cleaner rooms. Though not air-conditioned, most rooms do have a balcony and all contain period furnishings which reflect the Grand's proud century-old history. The charming lobby and outside terraces serving the restaurant, ice-cream shop and pizzeria also help generate a certain turn-of-the- century feel.
    Price around £ 80.

    Unique Quality: Babysitting. Bars (2). Beauty salon. Business centre. Car park (Ft1,800, free outside). Coffee shop. Conference facilities. Currency exchange. Disabled: access. Fax. Fitness centre. Laundry. Lift. Non-smoking rooms (20). Restaurant. Safe. Sauna. Solarium. Swimming pool.
    Room services Hairdryer. Minibar. Radio. Room service. Telephone. TV.

    Directions: Bus 26 will take you there.

  • Danubius Grand Hotel

restaurants on Margaret Island

by gdterry

Could you recommend a restaurant for lunch on Margaret Island that is open in late March?

RE: restaurants on Margaret Island

by Mikebb

Hi When we walked Margaret Island I recall seeing several places to eat, plus soft drink and snack stalls. Many of the facilities on the island are old and need money spent on them, we were there Sept'05. A nice place to visit , but we decided to eat elsewhere.
Good Luck, Mike

RE: RE: restaurants on Margaret Island

by cathy9510usa

Maybe you didn't walk far enough. We went to the very end of the island and stopped at the elegant Danubius hotel and spa. They had both coffee shop and restaurants. It's true we were there in the summer and ate outdoors, but this is a very good hotel and would be certain to have a nice place for lunch.

The best spas / thermal baths in Budapest

by globetrotter77

Can anyone recommend a really good (and maybe slightly different from the norm, quirky, unusual etc) spa or thermal bath in Budapest. I'm looking to get away from the famous ones like Gellert and try something slightly different, if possible.
Thanks in advance

RE: The best spas / thermal baths in Budapest

by szola

Unfortunately, I have no personal experience. Check this site for information about spas in Budapest, this may be helpful.


RE: RE: The best spas / thermal baths in Budapest

by cathy9510usa

Why not look into the Danubius Thermal baths on Margaret Island? We found them a lovely, restful place to spend a few hours. They're at the very end of the island, which is itself a park very worth exploring.

Check out this site:


The exterior architecture might not be very grand, but the interior is all you can ask for.

Accommodation Outside Central Budapest

by Archway

Hi. I wonder if anyone could recommend any reasonable hotels (or apartments) on the outskirts of Budapest or even in a town close to Budapest.

We'll be travelling to Budapest by car, and do not wish to take it into central Budapest. Ideally we are looking for a hotel that is about 20 - 30 minutes from central Budapest.

I'm probably asking for too much, but it would be good if the hotel/apartment was in walking distance (10 minutes or so) of a metro stop or station and in a safe area.

Many thanks

Re: Accommodation Outside Central Budapest

by stevemt

Hotel Budapest could very well suit your needs

See my Budapest pages for a review and also go here


From memory it is only a short walk to the metro from the hotel


Re: Accommodation Outside Central Budapest

by csordila

My recomendations
1. Danubius Health Spa Resort Margitsziget
Hotel is located in a safe area, on the Margaret Island, between Pest and Buda, on the River Danube in the middle of the city, in walking distance (10 minutes or so) of metro-line 3. The island is car-free but hotel guests may enter the island into own garage of the hotel. It is not cheap - avarage daily rate 120 - 160 Eu/room

2. Hotel Stadion - Budapest
Hotel is located in a safe area, in the near of the Puskás Ferenc Stadium, the László Papp Sportarena, has a covered parking lot, and in walking distance (2 minutes or so) of metro-line 2, ("Stadionok" Station), avarage daily rate 60 - 80 Eu/room

Re: Accommodation Outside Central Budapest

by Archway

Thank you for your replies. There are some great possibilities there.

ossian99: I guess there are two reasons why we don't want to take our car into central budapest -

1) We don't want to get caught in any traffic jams
2) More importantly, we won't be familiar with the roads. We'll have maps (and sat nav), but from experience, driving in central parts of unknown cities (especially when busy), can be very stressful.

Re: Accommodation Outside Central Budapest

by csordila

I agree with your explanation very much, I always make the same as well.
Have a good time. Laszlo

Travel Tips for Budapest

The Holy Right Hand of St Stephen (the King)

by Nemoa

Ok, this one for the very religious and the lovers of gory items.

This is the mummified Right hand of King St Stephen I, some 1000 years old only !

It enjoys great devotion from the people of Budapest, or so I have heard, because it was a lot more worshipped by tourists when I happend to came across it (including, ahem, me....).

It is very fairly appreciated by the people as, like many other relics, it was stolen by the nazis during WWII and recovered by the people of Hungary only after the war.

To light up the casket it lies in you have to drop a coin but my advice is to mix yourself up with a group of Japanese tourist and they will drop all the coins for you :-)

In fact, the hand itself can be better appreciated in the pictures that accompany the casket rather than the real thing itself but in any case, it is an interesting sight, not only for pilgrims but for anyone with curiosity for the pious items.

Budapest The Capital Of Hungary

by cobrioc

Budapest one of the liveliest and most beautiful cities of all Europe. The city has numerous treasureladen museums of fine and applied arts with valuable collections of European and Hungarian artists as well as historic artifacts.


by biggeorge

Hungaries most famous ( and most drinkable ) beer . Now available in preference to imported beers and the nasty domestic Arany Asok.
Consuming large quantities can be bad for the depth perception.

Off the Peaten Bath.....in Budapest

by budapest8

Looking through the other tips I see a lot of places
which are really touristy and the path is well beaten
as a tourist location where you will just run into other tourists!
When I hit a place for the first time and the weather is good,
I love to find those places hidden away or unknown by the
tourist guides! It`s so simple just to buy a good map of the city
and then just dissapear of the tourist radar. I have a student coming
in 10 mins so will write more when time allows.
Budapest has 22 Districts and tourists will penetrate less than
1% in area of the city, so just use your imagination and jump
on a bus, tram or local train and travel for 15 minutes and see where you end up!
Get a MAV train timetable or look on the net at where the local transport will take you,
then check out districts and places in GOOGLE. But then again some travelers
are into buildings and not local people and customs. Me I like to go DARK, off the radar
and penetrate into the woodwork of a place.
For example about 8 years ago when I was married and
living in Budapest downtown just off Kalvin Ter, I loved to choose locations
a little further of and then find out how to get there, I went to the Obuda Sziget (island)
instead of the Margit Island for relaxing sunny afternoons.
Sometimes trips to Vac or Nagymaros for the day,
crossing on the ferry over to Visegrad..
Take the Nostalgia train (Steam train from Nyugyati Station
Summer weekends) Take the Local Train HEV out to Cspel Island
and see the factories and the working mans drinking bars, go to the
Chinese Market (take the No.9 bus ) to Josef Varos Kina Piac.
Go to the shopping Mall Mamuth 1 stop by tram 4 or 6 from Moskva Ter
and see the world of well to do Hungarians. Walk round some of the run
down areas behind the SOTE hospital at Klinikat on the the blue line metro.

Erzsebet ter (square)

by german_eagle

Just a few steps from Deak Ferenc ter, the metro hub in the centre of Pest, is the Erzsebet ter, a nice oasis in the busy city. I thought it has a beautiful design with lawns, trees, the Danubius fountain in the middle (by Miklos Ybl, built 1880-83, destroyed in WWII so you see a copy, on top (male) Danube, the other three (female) figures depict the rivers Theiss, Drau and Save).

The square is surrounded by interesting buildings. The southern side is occupied by two fancy hotels: the Kempinski Corvinus with post-modern design and Le Meridien. Only a few steps from Le Meridien, on Deak Ferenc ter, are the Evangelic-Lutheran church and the Evangelic museum of Hungary. Worth to mention is that the museum owns the original testament of Martin Luther. No idea how they got it.
