the boat is a bit far from the center, but you pass by the Parliement building and the memorial to Jews shot into the Danue and it is opposite St Margarets Island. The room is small and basic- wardrobe, twin beds and sink, but they are what you would expect for a boat, this is not a cruise ship. Female... More

The hotel is simply perfect: location is very convenient for visiting any part of Budapest, both on foot or public transport. Airport is around 1 hour away. There're some very good restaurants around. Breakfast is brilliant and reach, room is very clean and cozy. Yes, it's quite small, but still you have enough space for everything. Towels, toiletries and fridge... More

This is located on the Danube and is quite a big Boat. The staff was a bit stern and straight faced but we didn't have to interact too much with them so it was okay. It's got stunning views of the Bridge and the Palace at night as you are literally on the Danube. The Parliament in walking distance and... More

The boat is a very special place to stay in Budapest. Great location, perfect if u travel by car. The rooms are very clean, the personal is friendly and helpful. The roof top restaurant is really great, good food and amazing view! I just missed a good coffee at the breakfast.

Spent several days here and I`m satisfied! My greatest thanks to staff and receptionists especially! They were very hospitable, helped us a lot and answered our every question. Cabins were okay ( fridges didnt work:( ) and location was fine- near beautiful Margit island and in 5-10m walk to Parliament. However, it takes time to get to the nearest bus... More

I'd be happy to stay there if visiting Budapest again. The location's fine as is, moored on The Danube, but five minutes' walk after sunset and you're on a bridge taking in the view of magnificent buildings on either side of the river, lit up against the night sky - unforgettable. Ten minutes' walk takes you to the Parliament building... More

Spent one night here in May and had cabin at reception level with good views towards Margit Island and boats passing on the Danube. Lovely old boat built in the 1960's with plenty of mahogany. My cabin with very comfortable bed was larger than those on the modern river boats cruising the Danube. Facilities a little basic but clean and... More

Me and my boyfriend went here and we were expecting a cheap hotel, even though it was three stars. The check-in went smoothly and the staff seemed nice. We got to the room and it smelled clean. But we saw a lot of dust in the corners of the floor and some mushed bugs on the wall. The air-condition was... More
