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

I stayed at this botel with my 2 friends and enjoyed a lot. We found it very difficult to locate it as we were searching for hotel not for any boat. Staff is very helpful. Rooms on the deck are good. Breakfast is also amazing.

We found the floating hotel on the Danube to be an easy walk to all the shopping and transport that we as visitors to Budapest required. Very helpful staff, excellent breakfast below decks. Great prices at the restaurant and bar. But the rooms are super small with no facilities.

Boat hotel in heart of Budapest, just opposite to Margit sziget (island) on the Danube. Old boat with hotel and restaurant situated on very convenient place if you planing to have sightseeing Budapest. Small rooms(boat) not for people over 190 cm. Nice feelings old style.
