A friend and I stayed for one night before heading off to the Sziget music festival. The hotel is not too far from a trolley bus stop if you are using public transport to get from the airport. The man on reception spoke good English. The narrow stairs were a bit of a pain, especially when carrying a lot of... More

I was here just for two nights, I often come to Budapest and this is the first time I stayed here, it won't be the last. Sure the rooms are smallish, it's a boat but I am 1m85 and it was no problem. The breakfast was one of the best I have had in a hotel for a long long... More

Great hotel, fun staying on a boat very central from Budapest city center. Nice staff and clean room. Mini bar and different names for all rooms, we stayed at the Christopher Columbus room;-) Only minus is that there no windows are, so the a/c is running permanently

Yes, this is a boat, but good enough with real river view. We stayed 3 days in superior room No 202. This is the best room on the boat - large enough with best view. Good cleanliness. Polite staff. Good breakfast. Good WiFi. Hotel has good location - approx. 1,5km to Parliament (10-15 min walk) When you book it do... More

Room was clean and the view of the river was great. Staff was friendly and helpful and assisted with directions and safeguarding luggage after check-out. Room is very basic, no toiletries, no tea or coffee, but for a budget hotel it was exactly what we bargained for. The breakfast was better than we expected from a budget hotel, with a... More

We had a lovely experience on the Fortuna Boat Hotel, room was clean and lovely view to the island with en suite incorporated. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choices and the breakfast staff very pleasant and helpful. The only downside was during our time there in June there was nowhere on the boat we could get a soft... More

We were walking along the river and saw this Botel Fortuna. We loved the Botel Albatros in Prague so we decided to go in for a beer. There was no one in the lobby so we wandered around a bit until we saw an employee and asked if we could get a beer. He said yes and we sat at... More

This is something completely different to do when visiting one of Europes most beautiful cities. The beds are a little hard, and the rooms a little cramped on the lower deck, but the breakfast was excellent. The location, superb. And the price, unbeatable! Highly recommended budget stay in Budapest
