Work or pleasure? We cater for both! What makes the Helia so special? That’s a matter of perspective. This is a wellness hotel with a wide range of fitness and spa services for guests in need of some pampering. However, it’s also a fully equipped conference hotel with all the facilities to host top quality professional events. The wellness and conference hotel is located in Budapest’s dynamic XIIIth district, on the bank of the Danube. The city centre is just 15 minutes away, while the nearby Margaret Island offers a host of recreational activities – from cycling, tennis and swimming to relaxing walks in beautiful parkland. Whether you’d like to unwind after work – or get away from work altogether – our wellness centre is the perfect spot. It has an adventure pool, swimming pool, sauna and a two-storey fitness club with stunning panoramic views. The hotel’s thermal bath is fed by natural thermal water from Margaret Island’s springs. Guests arriving by car can keep their vehicles safe in the hotel’s own car park, and travel into the centre by trolleybus or bus.

Reception and bar staff very rude and unhelpful. Dirty rooms. Small bathroom with shower attachment not sitting right with trickling water. Duvet covers too thin not fitting bed properly. Scruffy exterior to hotel 2 miles from anywhere.

Nice hotel with a good location. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Buffet was nice but it would have been nice with coffee served directly at the tables. Easy to find but parking is too expensive. Otherwise fairly priced

The hotel sits on an excellent location opposite Margarit island. The building is good with aging signs not too obvious. The lobby-bar area is wonderful and modern with big comfortable chairs and sofas. The rooms NEED to be renewed. They look and feel old, something that has noth

I'm in a panic. Have booked this hotel for 3 nights next March but noticed on website Check in closes at midnight. Our flight is not in until 12 so I'm hoping the hotel has 24hr reception. If anyone knows. I have emailed the hotel but no answer as of yet. Thank you
Can’t answer the 24/7 question but this is a very nice hotel overlooking the river. There is a wonderful restaurant two blocks away and also public transit a block away that will Connect you to the familiar attractions In Budapest. Enjoy your stay. Love Budapest.

With the sauna / steam rooms Can you go nude in there with a towel Or do you need to wear swimwear / shorts
I presume the men's changing room had their own sauna and steam like the ladies and yes you had the choice to go nude whatever you feel comfortable with . I found mostly nude
