I would recommend this hotel as they have beautiful room and services, very clean. Spa is the best but also I would suggest to make new pool. Everything is perfect except beds, which are big but I could not sleep..

Not hotel and friendly staff. My only complaint would be that they didn't ask if I wanted a twin or a double..was with a friend who was a guy and they gave us a double. Probably could have changed it but was soo tired, couldn't walk downstairs. Tried calling but the telephone didn't work. Just wish they would have asked...

The rooms were lovely and bed very comfortable. We had a fantastic view out of our room over the Danube. The hotel is not central but close to a metro station so perfectly easy and also cheap to travel in. The spa and pool facilities were excellent, and perfect to relax in at the end of a long days sightseeing....

Hotel has a nice swimming pool and a fair price. However, the staff could be more and friendly and the rooms much cleaner. I could find hair in my bed constantly, and the room given had the worst possible view (likely after my "third world" passport check).

It's not in the city or central tourist areas but is an easy 3.5km walk to the Szechenyi bridge which is central to all attractions. The hotel lobby is big although a bit...

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
