A cheap way to get up and down the river as some of the ferry lines are included in the all inclusive public transport tickets (weekdays only). The ferries offer great views from the river and have a little cafe onboard and (terribly smelly) free public toilets. The lower deck is completely closed in and the upper deck is open with some covered areas. The ferry stops are generally easily accessed from the tram and metro lines.

We bought 72 hour Budapest travel tickets (€13 each) and got the best value for money -ever. It allows you to travel on any tram (both old and new vehicles are a real experience), any trolley bus (yes they do still exist) and on the underground (which just takes you back in tIme with really beautiful old fashined stations just below street level). We then discovered you also get free access to the cog railway and best of all the D12 public transport boat. This runs to various stops north and south of the city centre and gives you fantastic view especially of the Parliament building. The public transport in Budapest is extensive and is a gift to the traveller at the price.

Fine if you don't care where you're going or how long it takes you.
The sign on the side of the boat said southbound.
We checked with two separate members of staff who confirmed we were southbound.
The boat departed at the time the southbound boat was due to depart.
Yet the boat went north. To the terminal.
The captain confirmed we (and everyone else - not just tourists) could stay on the boat for its return leg and go southbound.
Then a crew member told us to leave.
Then the captain told us we could stay.
Then we were told to pay again for the return leg.
Then (after some discussion) we were told we didn't need to pay.
Two and a half hours later we disembarked one stop away from where we got on, when the southbound boat terminated.
We felt no need to take another ferry during our time in Budapest.
One day we'll laugh about this.
Not yet.

We visit Budapest once a year as it's such a wonderful vibrant city .
We were in Budapest in March 2017 for a week and on landing in the airport the first thing we did was go to the information and travel office located in arrivals were we purchased a BKK public transport ticket for a 7 day pass,this worked out at about £15 which is great value for money working out at just over £2 a day.
This ticket gives us unlimited travel on busses,trams,metro and of course the wonderful BKV ferry boats.
The ferry boats are fantastic and is a great way to see the city without the hassle and in some cases exorbitant prices of the tourist river cruise boats that ply their trade along the River Danube.
The ferry boats are cool,sitting on the top deck you can take in all the sites from Parliament building,the bridges and view the hills Buda side and the stunning architecture Pest side.
They ferries are a novel way to enjoy this city and are very popular.
To gain information on the ferry boats including points of departure and times click on to the innumerable public transport blogs on the Internet.
