Recommended for:Business Travellers

The Danubius Helia is a gigantic complex to the north of Budapest that faces Margit Island in the middle of the Danube. It is about 20 minutes from the city center so this is more of a destination than a place to stay while visiting Budapest. The hotel spa complex is a favourite for convention organizers as it is often booked for groups of up to 350. Unfortunately the whole complex is a little dated and at any moment a visitor may expect to see a member of the East German Olympic Swim Team make an appearance. However, if the old Socialist aesthetic is your cup of tea, you could not ask for a better place. The indoor pools appear newly renovated and there is a large sundeck with plenty of exposed baking flesh. A nice breeze often comes down the river, however the faint hum of cars on the motorway along the river do disrupt the idyllic setting a bit. The rooms are efficient and clean and depending upon the group that is visiting, the bar in the lobby can become quite lively.

Local from Budapest

If spa treatments and thermal baths onsite are more important to you than being in the thick of the action, this Danube riverside hotel might be the place for you. Surrounded by a fair few socialist era tower blocks, the Helia’s exterior blends in seamlessly with the architecture of that grim era, but once inside you’ll find a pleasant enough large hotel with spa and ‘wellness’ facilities that must count as well, the business. That means there’s a decent sized indoor swimming pool, plus thermal baths, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. Pedicures, massages and even solarium are all available to guests. It doesn’t end there. The Danubius Premier Fitness Center offer group sessions and even a personal trainer, at a cost of course. Motorists however will note that it’s a very reasonable 10 euros per day to use their car park.

First to Review

The hotel is located in the 13th district, on the banks of the Danube facing Margaret Island. It is well known for its Danubius Premiere Fitness Center, full service spa, and therapy. The medical staff on hand and the several indoor (and outdoor) pools make this a great place for those who seek healing rather than being on business or vacation.

Rooms are good size, furnished tastefully in soft yellow and blue with plenty of closed space and a seating area. In a suite, you even have your own sauna in the bathroom.

There is coffee service set up in the guest rooms. Breakfast may or may not be included depending on where you book your reservation.
