The construction of the station was completed in 1884 and was done in the eclectic style. The main facade is adorned with two statues depicting James Watt and George Stephenson, as a tribute to the inventor of the steam engine and the first steam locomotive. Inside it is decorated with frescos and is a clean location, so if you have some time to spend in the station, you will like it. Immediately you will be able to use the Keleti subway station (line 2), so it is worth visiting the Keleti Station (which translates to "east station").

Train 144 first class service!
The worst train service in Europe. We had to clean our sits, windows and get rid of the empty bottles, dirty napkins left in our first class compartment although the train will be departing from Budapest Keleti. The train was so hot that we had to take off all our shirts and then they turned on A/C just five mins before departure. No wifi no place to buy even water. No need to waste money with this first class! train service from Budapest Keleti to Wien, we will rent a car or fly with the money we wasted tdy on our next trip...

Arrived by train from Vienna lunchtime on sunday 1st Sept 19 to find no taxis waiting. Large queue formed at taxi sign. Only taxis which appeared were pre booked. Most people, us included, went on the main road and flagged down one. Our hotel was less than a mile away. He took us on a tour before demanding 23200 of the local currency or 50 euros. Gave him considerally less having told him I would check with hotel. Cost should have been 10 euros inc tip. Beware !!

While this station in needs of upgrades, it is still functional. There are food stands and restaurants inside the building. There is a ticket booth and information area if you need some help.
From Budapest traveling to Austria, Vienna by speed train. You can buy your boarding pass ahead of time. I used rail ninja site.
Go to the Budapest Keleti Railway. Look the screen board to see what time your train departure and what gate.
I booked the business class train for 124 USD one way. Business class is so worth it. Leather seating that reclines, charging station and wifi.You will need to get off at Wein Hauptbahnof station which is about a 3 hours ride.
When on the train, WATCH YOUR VALUABLES!

We were taking the train to Vienna and had to get our ticket from one of the platform machines but of course, one of them was not working. Fortunately we did not have to wait too long to board the train as there did not appear to be any waiting areas close to the platforms.
