“Lovely Spa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Stayed in this hotel in August and overall we enjoyed our stay. the best thing about the hotel is the great spa! The food in the hotel was nice and the service was very good. It is I felt it was a little far from the city centre and we had to take taxis at night. the taxi drivers in Budapest were constantly trying to rip us off and we got scammed out of 50Euors on one occasion.

Just spent 4 nights here on a very good package that gave me one night free + a massage and discount other treatments.This was actually my second visit to this hotel so I knew what I wanted in terms of position of my room [ high up as possible , with a river view] and was given exactly that!
Particularly enjoyed the thermal pools, steam room and sauna and hope to return here again next year!

Room Tip: high up and on the Buda side for best views!

We have just stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a fantastic break. The hotel is very spacious, clean and friendly. I noted some people say it is dated, it is not a modern hotel, but it is no way old fashioned it is a hotel that suits all tastes for a spa break. The rooms are very clean, light and airy, the bed was very comfortable, all the usual toiletries in the bathroom, bathrobes and slippers, if I had to make a critisicm it would be the towels could have been a little fluffier!! The service throughout the hotel is excellent, everyone was helpful and friendly. My husband and I had some treatments, facials and massage whilst we were there and they were excellent, again the staff were very nice infact they went out of their way to be extra helpful. The spa facilities again where very good, a good size indoor swimming pool, thermal bath jacuzzi, hydro pool, steam room and sauna one for men and one for women. also a fitness suite which we didn't use. If I wanted a spa break again I would certainly visit here again.
The location of the hotel is good, there is a bus (no 16) which takes you from outside the hotel into the city, you can then pick up other buses, trams or metro for various locations. The only disappointment with this is that the last bus back to the hotel is around 10pm otherwise you need to use taxis or walk (probably too far though). We ate out in the evening in the city and then got the last bus back at 10pm and then had a drink back at the hotel.
Breakfast was good, I've had better, but certainly adequate, if you couldn't find enough for breakfast here then you would have to be very fussy. Cold meats,cheese, hot food, cereals, toast, jams, fruit, yoghurts, pastries and more.

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra go for an executive room. A room away from the lift.

The hotel is set in a nice setting on an island. The decoration is frankly very outdated and it feels very run down. The rooms are good size but quite dirty - the sofas had all stains and I had to put a towel on them to sit. The service is like back during the communism - you barely get acknowledged when you get to the reception, you always have to wait until someone gets interested in you. The treatments and spa facilities are quite nice but rather expensive. What is the biggest rip off however is the hotel bar and the taxis in front of the hotel (you should always call your own). All in all I would not go back.

Dear Valued Guest,

Many thanks from the management for taking time for a short review on tripAdvisor website,over your stay in our Danubius Health Spa Resort Margitsziget.
We are pleased that you have chosen to stay in our hotel and your feedback helps us to improve our services..
We really appreciate your comments like "The hotel is set in a nice setting on an island". We hope you could enjoy this beautiful surroundings.
We completely agree with your that the rooms are a bit tired,and could use a bit of a facelift.
We all sincerely hope that our owners -a Real Estate company based in the U.K - will soon raise the funds necessary for a small facelift of the rooms.
Regarding your comments on the prices in our spa I can assure you that all of our prices suit a 4star hotel category. Of course if you buy a bound of treatments we can offer you different discounts. Comparing these rates to other hotels's prices abroad we can state that our guests come to a good service at a very good price.
Thank you again for your kind feedback and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again at DHSRM.
Best regards

The Danubius hotel is a great place to stay for a business or pleasure trip to Budapest, mainly due to the peaceful setting and facilities on-site. This was my fourth visit to the hotel and I will certainly stay again. The rooms are dated, but always clean and comfortable, although too hot in the summer for my personal tastes due to the poor/lack of in-room air conditioning.

The on-site dining is a little lacklustre, with the buffet at the connecting Grand Hotel very poor. The breakfast is good, but expensive for Hungary so you should be prepared for this. The only other issue for me is the in-room WiFi is very expensive, which for the business traveller is a big issue. This being said, the hotel is normally reasonably priced so as long as you are not expecting a modern, central hotel you should be pleased with the accomodation.

We only stayed here for 2 nights, but this is a very clean, well-managed hotel with a reputation spanning a few decades.
The rooms are clean, service is good and the spa facilities are above average.
One can also use the fitness centre. This is also complimentary.

Hi!After many failed attempts to visit the famous baths/Spas, we went to this hotel, located on the Margitsziget Island on the Danube, connected to the Margaret Bridge.Took the Bus after alighting from the tram, all the way to the Hotel and used their thermal baths, after a great massage around the end of our tour.Very clean surroundings.5 star service.We loved it.You can see the traditional baths as well, but do not miss the surroundings here.On our trip back to the bridge we just walked the 4,5 km stretch taking our own time,rather than taking a bus which was always crowded.Beautiful botanical gardens, and a musical fountain, steered by the musical rythem of Beethoven for instance.
