This is on a ship. Each room has a captain name. The bathroom is a little small. You have TV, minibar in room. It is quite an experience to stay here. The restaurant has good food and nice waiter and waitress.

My mum and I recently visited Budapest for a short break and chose Boat Hotel Fortuna due to its excellent pricing and interesting twist of being a boat. Staying on the river is a great way to experience the cities and the location of this boat hotel is really good. While we were there, the access road was undergoing quite...

Nice boat hotel - close to the city center. Very nice view of the river and Margit island . We had quiet unit with 2 nice rooms. Very clean. The easy big parking along the river just in the front. (!!!!) Very good value for money !! A very very unique and special experience.

When I first booked the Fortuna Boat Hotel I was pretty excited about the idea of staying on a boat in the city. When I arrived at the hotel, it didn’t live up to my expectations. We stayed two nights in a pretty small room with no sound proofing at all. That means you could hear every person walk by...

In spite of asking for a room with easy access we were given a tiny cabin of very steep ship's stairs. The information on Internet stated there is a lift but there is no lift and we are both in our late 70s. Otherwise very clean with reasonable cheap breakfast. Bedroom so small we had to climb in from bottom...

The location of the hotel is great, right ON the Danube, near Margaret Bridge. You can see Margaret Island and the beautiful music and color fountain there from the boat. Is pretty close to tram stations, and the transportation in Budapest is pretty good. Walking distance to the Parliament building and the Lukacs thermal baths (over the bridge). Be careful...

My sister and I stayed at this boat hotel for 4 nights. Very small beds but overall a comfortable stay, housekeeping daily. Breakfast is not the best, eggs and french toast was cold. Very basic food, no croissants or toast available which is usually a regular on buffet breakfasts abroad so was disappointed with this. The Lord Nelson restaurant on...

The boat hotel is well placed for tram travel and walking along the danube. There as some lovely views from the boat in the evening. I found the op deck was great relaxing of an evening watching the boats travelling up and down the river.

The cabins are nice, with two or three beds. It is what you would expect from a boat. The rooms and common bathroom were not very clean though. If you plan to get breakfast included, it's a good choice, as you can choose from a lot of stuff.

The view was very nice from our room however we found the price is too high for the quality and service. Shower barely worked. Its time for new shower head. Asked for shampoo it was not available. Some staff is very friendly and some should not be in the hospitality business at all!!! Breakfast was good. Bread is fresh every...
