What a lovely place! Not overly poche, clearly a palace for "ordinary" living, i. e. considering royal standards. The restaurators have done a fine job to strike the balance between authenticity and preservation, considering that many furniture items had to be replaced completely. A nice...More

The palace tour is through small but impressive restored rooms. Sadly, as usual internal photography is not allowed.

We easily got there on public transportation. It took us about a hour and a half to go through it and then have a wonderful pastry in the snack bar. I learned a lot in the visit. They are still restoring it.

The renovation so far here is impressive, and it rivals a lot of the Habsburg sites in Vienna at a fraction of the cost. This makes a great half-day trip away from the bustle of Budapest, easily accessible on the suburban railway and literally across...More

The Hungarian people should be justly proud of Gödöllő Royal Palace and the restoration work they have undertaken. It is indeed worth seeing, particularly for the visit to Sissi's rooms. There are more opulent palaces in Europe, and much more extensive gardens. But this palace...More

Small by some standards this palace is full of beautiful items from years gone by. The palace has been renovated back to its former glory, and contains many original furnishings that have survived to the present. There are many beautiful paintings and old heaters in...More

This was the favorite palace of Emperor Franz Josef and wife Sissi, especially Sissi. It has been beautifully restored. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to tour the palace and another 30 minutes to do justice to the gardens and grounds. Our guide was great...More

You can take the train. Ask at hotel about cost for a car. Should be about $65 an hour. Best to take train. Not a long walk to palace from station

Correction: Actually, the HEV commuter trains leave from Örs Vezér tere more frequently, about every 30 minutes, and you do not have to change to a bus as you do on the train from Keleti station.
