“The age of steam”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is a relic of a grand age of Imperial travel. Although it is a little faded that adds to its charm. It is built on a grand scale.There was a book stall on the platform I alighted at which sold English books! On the way back to Bratislava later that day the buffet sold a terrific selection of local pastries, savouries and cold beers-yummy!

Interesting old train station to walk through but will not take much time. Yes there is some construction, but in the end it will be very nice.

Reviewed August 3, 2013

Just view from hop on- off bus. No need to visit. Area is not the best in Budapest. A typical railway station.

“Really old ”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

This is the most ever old fashion train station, with this sight view seems like take you back to 1950's soviet union. Trains are old dirty and wven rusted.
