Very good wireless connection. Excellent positon. Sauna in room. I used it and enjoyed. Very clean. Maybe needs some refurbishment but overall ok for 4* hotel. We wanted to dine at hotel restaurant but there was convention of some sort so we have to eat at lobby bar.

For the cons: The Wi-Fi was horrible and I couldn't connect to it or use it for anything my entire stay. There were no...

All of the staff are wonderful and looked after us very well. We had dinner in the restaurant both nights and the food and wine were excellent and reasonably priced. Only slight downside is the breakfast...

There is a business centre (during business hours!) with 2 aged computers for browsing, but would have expected some newish computers in the main lobby area for guests to use without having to check in at the business centre first.

Very good hotel for family trip to Budapest. We have been very satisfied from general point of view with accommodation in this category. Especially thermal spa with many possibilities for relax after long day in down town was appreciated. My recommendation for the spa staff: please ask all visitors to use a shower just before spa pools visit! I was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Work or pleasure? We cater for both! What makes the Helia so special? That’s a matter of perspective. This is a wellness hotel with a wide range of fitness and spa services for guests in need of some pampering. However, it’s also a fully equipped conference hotel with all the facilities to host top quality professional events. The wellness and conference hotel is located in Budapest’s dynamic XIIIth district, on the bank of the Danube. The city centre is just 15 minutes away, while the nearby Margaret Island offers a host of recreational activities – from cycling, tennis and swimming to relaxing walks in beautiful parkland. Whether you’d like to unwind after work – or get away from work altogether – our wellness centre is the perfect spot. It has an adventure pool, swimming pool, sauna and a two-storey fitness club with stunning panoramic views. The hotel’s thermal bath is fed by natural thermal water from Margaret Island’s springs. Guests arriving by car can keep their vehicles safe in the hotel’s own car park, and travel into the centre by trolleybus or bus. ... more   less
