Fortuna Boat Hotel & Restaurant
Ranked #144 of 332 Hotels in Budapest
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stayed 3 days in May. It is a boat. Location is excellent. It was easy to get to all attractive places. The cabin was clean. Breakfasts had good quality and diversity. At check-in we got a flyer with 15% discount for one diner. So, once we had a good diner with traditional gulyash on the open desk. The thing we were not ready is the size the room and bathroom. It was small comparing to traditional hotel rooms. Also in some reason windows designed in the way that they can not be open. As compensation of this you can use boat desk and open space that goes around the floor for having a drink and watching cruise ships passing by on Danube waves.

Room Tip: If you like to watch the river and boats passing by ask for the room on that side of boeat.

Visited the hotelboat with 61 students.
1. the service and contact before the stay was very good and fast.
2. arriving went smooth and quick, and the staff is VERY polite and helpfull for ekstra wishes.
3. The breakfast is really good! It takes several mornings to try all kind of food. It includes also hungarian classic breakfast and fresh fruts.
4. The price is very fair compared to the high level og service, good fascilities and food.
5. it is just a perfect location. In the middle of the city and a beautiful place at the danube.

Room Tip: choose a room at the first floor with even numbers, then you wake up to the view of Danube every mor...

Just got back from a three night stay. It's only a star hotel so don't have massive expectations. My cabin was functional and clean if a little small. The air conditioning unit did not work but it wasn't required. Breakfast is a continental buffet in a small dining room so do expect to share your table with others. Location wise you are very close to the river taxi and five minutes walk from a couple of the major tram routes. Getting to all of the major attractions is very easy from here. All told an enjoyable stay.

DIRT, DIRT, DIRT, even more dirt! Dirty room, shower, toilet, only the dining-room was nice and tidy. Cockroach in the room and plenty of spiders. The floor was clean and the beds but table, window really dirty.
The furniture was shabby.
Even if it is a low standard and cheap hotel they should clean it.
Very nice breakfast, very good location, and fantastic Danub- wiew from the windows.

if you want to do something a bit different , stay on the boat hotel fortuna on the Danube in Budapest. the rooms ( cabins ) are only small and basic but very clean and adequate for a few days stay. the reception staff are very helpful for trips and directions etc. the views of the Danube and Budapest itself are great from the boat too. there is plenty of parking if you have a car and its free. the restaurant / bar is excellent and you get 15% discount if you are resident. the breakfast , which is included in the price , was plentiful and again very good.we would definatly stay there again , it was great ..

Room Tip: front rooms are a little bigger than the Danube side rooms and the ground floor rooms are easier to...

We made a reservation for a double standard room during the hottest days of August…
The only good thing about this hotel was a nice morning and evening view to the river and the constant flow of any kind of boats and cruises, this was really interesting....
I wonder how the stars are been given to the hotels lately, this hotel is maximum a 2 stars hotel if not less. The staff is just ok...there is nothing special to expect from them in terms of generosity and help. The rooms are really small and specially the bathroom-wc, I guess about 1. 55 square meters and generally you can barely move inside the room. The windows cannot be opened and even the curtains are small what makes difficult to close them properly, as a consequence of this, there is really a bad air atmosphere in the whole boat what they try somehow to mask using air fresheners, the air conditioning device was supposed to be delivering 5 degrees...and it was instead actually delivering around 20.....There are also any kind of barriers in the hotel and from the moment you are getting on you could be having problems and possibly falling down…. The ceiling is considerably low...so if you are about 1.80 m and above....you will be certainly also having problems. On the other hand, shower gel was awful and even missing, towels really old as well as the pillows and so on….we were also constantly hearing other's people wc and steps all night long, very bad noise isolation...
As for the food….breakfast was just standard…do not expect anything out of this world…each salam, cheese, bread, hot dogs and so on…are just very standard at the most…possibly the best things were the fruits…we were given some discount card for the hotel’s own restaurant and when going upstairs to eat….just the view was ok….there were any kind of insects around the tables and the staff did not seem professional at all, so we just decided to go eating somewhere else…
These are just a few things from our stay. I would definitely never make a reservation for this boat again…there are many other options in Budapest that even when being a few more euros expensive…are certainly better located and offer a better service…

Room Tip: rooms to the river give you a better view....anyway my best tip is...expend between 20-60 euros more...
