This is located on the Danube and is quite a big Boat. The staff was a bit stern and straight faced but we didn't have to interact too much with them so it was okay. It's got stunning views of the Bridge and the Palace at night as you are literally on the Danube. The Parliament in walking distance and... More

The boat is a very special place to stay in Budapest. Great location, perfect if u travel by car. The rooms are very clean, the personal is friendly and helpful. The roof top restaurant is really great, good food and amazing view! I just missed a good coffee at the breakfast.

Spent several days here and I`m satisfied! My greatest thanks to staff and receptionists especially! They were very hospitable, helped us a lot and answered our every question. Cabins were okay ( fridges didnt work:( ) and location was fine- near beautiful Margit island and in 5-10m walk to Parliament. However, it takes time to get to the nearest bus... More

I'd be happy to stay there if visiting Budapest again. The location's fine as is, moored on The Danube, but five minutes' walk after sunset and you're on a bridge taking in the view of magnificent buildings on either side of the river, lit up against the night sky - unforgettable. Ten minutes' walk takes you to the Parliament building... More

Spent one night here in May and had cabin at reception level with good views towards Margit Island and boats passing on the Danube. Lovely old boat built in the 1960's with plenty of mahogany. My cabin with very comfortable bed was larger than those on the modern river boats cruising the Danube. Facilities a little basic but clean and... More

Me and my boyfriend went here and we were expecting a cheap hotel, even though it was three stars. The check-in went smoothly and the staff seemed nice. We got to the room and it smelled clean. But we saw a lot of dust in the corners of the floor and some mushed bugs on the wall. The air-condition was... More

The beds were awesome, and insanely comfortable. But the cleaning service were horrible.... The bathroom/toilet had a mouldy smell... And the cleaners did a horrible job of keeping the room fresh. The floors were dusty. The towels were full of lint.... But the people who worked there were awesome from start to finish. They were helpfull and kind, and me... More

The overall experience was very good. People were friendly, facilities clean and in good working condition. The breakfast was well above what expected from a 3* hotel. The best of all was its location. We highly recommend it.

We stayed three nights at this boat hotel because it is close to city centre and transport link. The location of the hotel is near tram line 4, 6 and 2, which take you to main tourist sites in Budapest. The river boat public transportation is also nearby and you can access to all public transportation free if you have... More
