The department that I worked in had a conference at this hotel. Since it was my first time traveling to Europe, I really didn't know what to expect. The Danubius Grand Hotel Margitsziget was beautiful with an old world charm. It sits on a small island, away from the city center, so if you stay here and want to visit... More

After several stays in the next Danubius Health & Spa Hotel I decided to try this seamingly more luxurious Grand hotel on Margitszieget island. However, the Spa hotel is much better in my opinion. Grand hotel is old which is visible everywhere - in rooms, reception, dining area, a bit "smelly" in public areas etc. Wifi is for free only... More

We went here for a late lunch. The reception staff were very helpful and directed us to their cafe as we were too late for lunch in their restaurant. All was looking good at that point! However, my experience at the cafe was not good and did not reflect well on the hotel. I can't remember a time when I've... More

This is an interesting hotel, it reeks of grandness from a few years back. The hotel is located on the beautiful Margits island and is attached to the hotel next door with excellent Spa facilities. For anyone wanting to go to the city area though it is quite a decent (25 minute) walk, albeit through a beautiful park but you... More

The building is still one of the most beautiful in Budapest, in a huge historical park. We had a big cosy room with balcony on the back. The service is still very "soviet", no manners, lazy service, we got even sent brutally away from the restaurant over the week-end because of the privatisation for 2 weddings nobody told us about...

This hotel is situated in the most beautiful spot in Budapest; namely the Margaret Island in the river Danube in Budapest. The food in the restaurant is very good (we tried the buffé several times, the dishes varied from day to day), the room was spacious with nice furniture and GREAT bed, including blankets and pillow. (Pillow is often a... More

I was staying in this hotel for a conference. It has a unique location on the island, you do not feel that you are in a city, but in a forest, full of big old trees, birds singing, green grass, thermal waters, friendly and helpfull staff, very good food. Only bus 26 crosses the island. In order to reach the... More
