The station itself looks amazing and it's worth a visit if you are near it. The only problem we had was with its staff who doesn't speak nor understand English. We didn't really know it had a closing time and while our friends were searching...More

We traveled to Budapest on August 2018 and visited Keleti Railway station. It is an incredibly huge building with a stunning look. We went there to buy train tickets to Bratislava. The information staff speak English and was helpful. We were informed that there is...More

The only reason I gave this train station 1 star is because I couldn't submit my review without it. We booked our tickets before we even left the USA. My husband went to the ticket counter to check us in and noticed that we did...More
