    City VacationComing from Vienna airport by rental car we enjoyed our 4 days stay in Budapest thoroughly and the Danubius Helia was the key to it! A secluded car park with ample space is available in front of the hotel at Euro 10,- per day. Daytime excursions in the city were followed by in-house spa sessions before dinner. The spa was well frequented, but never overcrowded. Great dining recommendations by the friendly staff at the reception desk. The vast breakfast buffet selection was a good start into the day. We booked a room with river view which turned out to be the right choice., nice panorama and quiet. The weak points of the hotel are the slow lift and an aircon in the room which does not deserve it's name! Overall I can highly recommend this place if you look for a place away from the hustle & bustle of the downtown area, but still in the vicinity of Budapest.

    Great location and room, BUTThe rooms have very tight door lockers. These require you to apply a bit of force to close it. Then this leads to most guest just slamming them. One should expect random slams during night. Another thing to take care about is that the power outlets get disconnected once the card is taken off from the key ... apart from that I liked it very much. I have made use of the air conditioning

    Great Spa Hotel! Excellent Hotel, with Spa included in the room prices which allows you to fully relax and enjoy thermal waters. The Spa section provides three amazing thermal pools, along with other services which must be booked in advance (massages, salt therapy ecc). The price you pay is hundred percent worth by the thermal pools alone! If you request in advance the superior rooms (6th floor, by paying a little bit more than the standard price) you will enjoy an amazing view on the Danube. We were delighted with such view! The only minus we noticed about the rooms is that a) they were not very large/spatious and felt a bit small & b) you can't open the windows which are kept locked and without the handle. This felt a little strange since we usually need to open windows to air out the room and get a little fresh air ourselves. Nothing else except these odd things. The hotel is kept always very clean and tidy and the hotel staff is professional, discreet, kind and friendly. A wonderful experience we had also in the hotel restaurant both at dining (during which you choose between the a la carte service and selfservice dishes) and breakfast. The breakfast is super rich and includes a wide variety of foods ranging from the classic european breakfast (based on some pastry and croissants) to the typical north american one (fried/scrumbled eggs, bacon, salami) but also includes a spot for those oriented towards a more healthy/organic breakfast. Also it has a very rich variety of fruits. Only downside regarding breakfast is the lack of freshly made cakes and pies! It would be awesome being able to find some tasty cheesecakes, muffins, puddings or apple pies! Albeit there's nothing to say about the food quality which is very good (both in the morning and during the evening). The position of the structure is also strategic.

    Danube Views with superb facilitiesWe've stayed here a number of times now - the staff in the reception and bar/cafe area always remember us and welcome us. The facilities are excellent - much better than many of the 5* hotels in Budapest - very relaxing and as effective as going to any of the thermal baths. The hotel is located opposite Margaret Island, we had a fantastic view of the Danube and Buda Hills. Transport connections are good - using either the 75/76 tram, the M3 metro, or just enjoying the walk along the Danube.

    A good, quiet hotel for a relaxing short break”

    Swiimming pool/spa, buffet breakfast, quiet, clean and comfortable

    Although a little out of the way of the centre this in no way was a drawback. There is a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro station and 4 stops to the central area where you can interchange to the other metro lines. On a nice day you could walk it, along the riverside. There is of course buses and trolly bus routes nearby too. Almost in front of the hotel is a good supermarket and an Aldi 15 minutes away in direction to the city. The room was nicely furnished, quiet, clean, comfortable, warm and roomy enough for a couple. Bathtub & shower with plenty of hot water. The spa/pool, buffet b/fast, management, room service very good and reasons I have no hesitation in recommending.

    Spa and comfortable rooms

    As above as well as a nice quiet area of Budapest. A nice 20 minute stroll into the historic city of Budapest. Handy for transport if you don't feel like walking such as the underground metro which is only a 5 minute walk away. The staff at the hotel will only be too pleased to ring a taxi which will probarbly cost around £10 to the town centre. The breakfast at the hotel which will also cost around £10 is excellent with a large variety of healthy foods. Spoilt for choice!! All this and much more from the helpful staff make a stay at the Danubius Helia a comfortable and quiet relaxing stay as well as good value for money. I have stayed here twice now in the past 2 months an will be most definately bookig this hotel for a short stay again in June 2013.

Just the Rooms Were cleant only 1-2 in These 8 days. It’s very far from the Center ( you cant just Walk when it’s cold, you have to use public transpartation or Taxi . Its a very quite place around the hotel area, but for relaxing , spa, wellness etc you have everything you need and a lot of open space so you feel comfortable.

    Stayed here for five nights during the Christmas Markets. About an hours walk along the Danube to the Chain Bridge but there are buses, 15 and 115 that take you into the centre. Closest Metro station closed while we were there for major engineering works. Also used Trolleybus 75 to Heroes Square. Spa area lovely and relaxing after a cold walk around the sights. Breakfast very cosmopolitan but the only things that appealed to us was cereal, toast, scrambled egg and cheese. Not worth 12E if not included. Supermarket accross the street and bar/restaurant 5 min walk away called Marsell.

    Swimming pool and its spa

    The hotel is very nice and clean. It is however a little bit far from city centre. If the weather is good, it is OK to walk from the hotel to city centre. Our room was on fifth floor and it was far from elevator (room 558). The view was not so good. Despite these things, we can still relax on its swimming pool, sauna and steam bath.
