It's a railway station, so it's exactly what you expect. Lots of people, lots of noise, good location in center of town. Several shops in the station. None are cheap.

A great place to visit, even if you don't have to wait for your train. It's a really old building, so you can have an image of an old train station.

The Western railway station is an amazing 19th century iron and glass building constructed by the Eiffel Company. It is a busy rail station, has a metro station, and a tram stop out front. There is a shopping centre next to it.

It was a very nice building, but unfortunately since yeras there is no sign to renew it. The building is in a terrible condition. The information system is very bad. The station itself is absolutely not clean. If there is no absolut necessity avoid it.

Went to the station to take a train to the City of Pecs. The station looks just like the ones you would see in old world war 2 movies. The only thing missing (thank goodness) was the storm troopers

I agree w the other reviews -- it is nice to take a photo, but then get out of there. The clientele is a little dodgy and there is nothing to do besides take a photo. Architecture is gorgeous, though

As most railway stations, it can be a bit too busy and a bit dangerous. Be careful with your belongings (there might be pickpockets on the area). Also a good place to find some cheap food.

Actually there is no locker, but there is a luggage "garderobe", where you can leave your luggage, doesn't matter what size. The cost for a day is around 600-800.- Hungarian Forint.
