“Where are the good old times?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

One can see ist ans feel it that the hotel Management focuses strictly on High income
No Free Internet in the rooms, only if you Pay extra , the breakfast coffee is terrible, they put a cheap soluble coffee automat, even at tank station you drink better coffee. Bread and co. the cheapest and worse category, all ready made stuff, forget about the old good quality. The hotel is focusing on russian guest, children have nothing to do, you see and feel that they suck as much as can from the hotel the way it is and dont want to invest at all. The swimmpool guy shouted very unfriendly many times at different kids just because they took plastic cups to play in the water. The old staff is excellent, they still do a fantastic job, but i think they are very underpaid. For sure, it is a pity for this once amazing hotel to be played with it only for pure profit. Even the russian market will have stronger expectations, except the existing thermal water, and then the hotel eventually loose ground...
Only inthe last 3-4 years the number of hotels in budapest became at least 5 - times more and one can find better and better quality, all over. The last card of Danubius in this hotel is the island...
Whoever plans to be more in the city then they are better off with a hotel in the 5,6,7, district.

Stayed here in early Nov for 3 nights.

Had a river view over the Pest side. Nice with the different coloured foliage looking the the river.

The staff were quite helpful and the meals were ok in the main buffet dining room, but nothing special.

The park on margarit Island is beautfil to stroll through on the way to centro and the walk is about 30 mins to get back to the Hotel either through the park or along the river banks of the Island. The walk is appreciated as Hungarian food is quite heavy, tasty but heavy.

The room was quite a good size but the heater was hard to control and I had to leave the balcony door slightly ajar to achieve a good sleeping temperature.

Otherwise, have a massage and make use of the heated pool.

Nice stay.

Room Tip: Depending on which side of the river you want to look over get a room on the outside with balcony to...

The hotel is nice but the restaurant...... horrible service plus when you order beef with blue cheese, u get a brown mixture of chopped beef and asparagus no cheese thus.....
The spa is very nice, offers a variety of treatments, and is definitely worth visiting after a whole day out.

The hotel is on a small island on the Danube. Its not in the center of the city, not very close to attractions. You must walk 30 minutes or more to get to a tram or take some sort of transportation. If you want piece and quiet and a wonderful SPA. This is the place. Great value for the money. The hotel can benefit from some renovation...but again...the value is there. I stayed there because of my parents who wanted the SPA treatments who are so much vheaper than the hotels in the center of the city. And of better quality. Cabs are not that expensive. So if you want to go somewhere just order one. You pay four more times the value of this hotel to stay in the city. You better of paying for a 10 minute cab ride!!

We would like to call your attention that bus Nr. 26 is travelling to the city behind of the hotel in every 10-15 minutes, you do not have to walk 30 minutes to the tram.
We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you to our Hotel in the future again.

Stayed in this hotel in August and overall we enjoyed our stay. the best thing about the hotel is the great spa! The food in the hotel was nice and the service was very good. It is I felt it was a little far from the city centre and we had to take taxis at night. the taxi drivers in Budapest were constantly trying to rip us off and we got scammed out of 50Euors on one occasion.

Just spent 4 nights here on a very good package that gave me one night free + a massage and discount other treatments.This was actually my second visit to this hotel so I knew what I wanted in terms of position of my room [ high up as possible , with a river view] and was given exactly that!
Particularly enjoyed the thermal pools, steam room and sauna and hope to return here again next year!

Room Tip: high up and on the Buda side for best views!

We have just stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a fantastic break. The hotel is very spacious, clean and friendly. I noted some people say it is dated, it is not a modern hotel, but it is no way old fashioned it is a hotel that suits all tastes for a spa break. The rooms are very clean, light and airy, the bed was very comfortable, all the usual toiletries in the bathroom, bathrobes and slippers, if I had to make a critisicm it would be the towels could have been a little fluffier!! The service throughout the hotel is excellent, everyone was helpful and friendly. My husband and I had some treatments, facials and massage whilst we were there and they were excellent, again the staff were very nice infact they went out of their way to be extra helpful. The spa facilities again where very good, a good size indoor swimming pool, thermal bath jacuzzi, hydro pool, steam room and sauna one for men and one for women. also a fitness suite which we didn't use. If I wanted a spa break again I would certainly visit here again.
The location of the hotel is good, there is a bus (no 16) which takes you from outside the hotel into the city, you can then pick up other buses, trams or metro for various locations. The only disappointment with this is that the last bus back to the hotel is around 10pm otherwise you need to use taxis or walk (probably too far though). We ate out in the evening in the city and then got the last bus back at 10pm and then had a drink back at the hotel.
Breakfast was good, I've had better, but certainly adequate, if you couldn't find enough for breakfast here then you would have to be very fussy. Cold meats,cheese, hot food, cereals, toast, jams, fruit, yoghurts, pastries and more.

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra go for an executive room. A room away from the lift.
