“A liitle out of the way but still nice.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I had forgotten about this place, Booked it a year or so back for myself and the son and daughter in law. If it was not for the fact that it was a little bit out of the way then this would be a really good place to stay. You have to walk for 10 mins to get to a bus stop but that does at least take you into the city. The staff were ok but when we got there in the evening there was a private party going on and we couldnt get a drink. They finally relented and said we could take them to our rooms. There is a resturant on the shore which was nice and we did eat on the boat as well which I have to say was really really good! Rooms were ok but the view over the river more then made up for any small flaws that we may have found. If you can get a good deal then I would say go for it. Just be carefull in the city as they will try and rip you off!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river and not the bank side.

Nice, clean rooms, although the windows dont open so they become very dingy and hot, as the air conditioning is crap and just lets mosquitos in....nice bathrooms though, clean water, good breakfast and dinner menu, friendly staff and close to a row of bars and restuarants. Close enough to the bus stop for the bus number 34 into town, and about a mile from the bus stop (923) that comes back from town during the night. The boat also stops right outside the hotel and that takes you to the centre of Budapest. Quiet, residential area with not a lot to see, so be prepared to venture out and about every day..

Room Tip: None really, all the rooms look the same and its pretty quiet...

The Aquamarina was difficult to find, especially at 11.30 pm at night on foot - not our wisest move but the area seemed pretty pleasant even at that time of night and we saw no trouble at all. The hotel was very basic - I would say a 3* if that. No tea and coffee making facilities in the room, which you tend to expect now but I do recognise that its not necessary normal in Europe yet to have tea and coffee facilities available in the room. It was basic, but as we were in Budapest to go to Sziget Festival it did the job for which it was booked for ie provided a nice place to sleep and shower.

The only 2 problems we experienced is the boats air conditioning system that cools down the boat, corridors, etc was extremely noisy - luckily its a constant noise so we managed to sleep through it once you got used to it, but others may find this completely unacceptable. The noise came out of the vents in the bathroom but even with the door shut it was still loud.

The other problem was that on the Saturday night the hotel hosted a wedding party, which we didn't have any problem with until the music was still going on at 3 am in the morning so loudly the pictures on our room wall were vibrating. At this point we did complain at reception who managed to talk the dj into turning the music down so that the pictures at least stopped vibrating. It eventually stopped around 4.30 am. I was not happy.

But all in all the breakfast was adequate, the rooms clean, it did the job.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the boat away from the function room and away from the loudest part of...

I visited the hotel in March 2012 andit was... ok. The room was nice. Ac and TV with programmes in German. Transportation is good even at night. But... It's really far away from the center. The Internet worked terrible and the only way to use it was sitting near the door on the floor haha Nothing else worked. The breakfast was good. And what I didn't understand is... room service. May be it was supposed to be like that but the only thing they did is making beds. No vacuuming, no taking the trash all the time, no checking any presence of toilet paper (sorry for detailes). Yes, they chenged towels when I needed but anyway it's not really difficult to take the trash away from the room. They didn't knock.
It's a good experience for one time. And it's not expensive. But next time I will book a room in another hotel.

this hotel is just a new experience, low 3* but very good value for money. I am glad we tryed it, but would not like to go there again.
Nothing specific tro complian about, but as well, apart for the very original idea, there is nothing specific to prize.

Just come back today from this litttle gem of a holiday. The area that the botel is located on is so relaxing. On the danube and you find a kind of beach to relax on. The weather was great. The botel was everything that we expected. The room was clean a fair size and easy to get to at all times. The breakfast was basic but enough to set you up for the day, all areas of the botel were clean. The menu was limited but we enjoyed the food. Especially the platter for two. The staff were friendly and always helpful. The waiter named 'Peter' was great at keeping our drinks topped up and ensuring that we were happy. The reception staff were very helpful and answered all our questions. There was use of a free internet computer and free wi-fi. There was a boat service that took us in to the city each day, approx £3 each way. On the days we didnt go to the city we enjoyed walking around the area where the botel is. We also enjoyed sun bathing on the jetty's and the beach area's. We were so impressed with this break that we will return next year, not for a main holiday but a few days away to relax. Finally the taxi service from the airport though pre booked was also attentive and ensured we got to the botel and airport at the correct times.

Room Tip: I think the rooms that are even are the rooms that back on to the dannube side. We were in room 216...
