ACCOMMODATION SUGGESTIONS

Budapest has very reasonably priced hotels and accommodations and an easy destination to fly to from anywhere in Europe. For example, Easy Jet has 30 GB pound tickets from London leaving 2-3 times per day.

HOWEVER- BOOK early- it’s the summer holiday session so it is a busy time of the year- plus our venue location is the best area in Budapest!

We highly recommend this hotel

Thermal Baths

Hungary has over 100 thermal baths and many are attached to hotels with wellbeing packages. 

At the Gellert Furdo in Budapest you can soak in palatial elegance surrounded by tiled mosaics and stained-glass skylights. At Bubble up at the Szechenyi Furdo (turn of the century) in the City Park in Pest (part of Budapest) where you can bath in the open air.

No Central European could imagine a trip to Budapest without at least one session in thecity`s fabled thermal waters. The art nouveau Hotel Gellért is the most glorious of themany bathhouses - others are 16th-century Turkish baths. If you spend time in Budapest, at least a part of it should be at the soothing thermal spring baths. The Romans reaped the health benefits of hot springs here, but it was during the 16th- and 17th- century Turkish occupation that the bath culture was developed. Some of these spas are still in operation today. The Király, the Rudas and the Rácz are the finest examples.

thermal bathsBut there is an array of baths from more recent Hungarian times, such as the wonderful Art Nouveau Gellért Baths at the luxurious Gellért Hotel. And the Lavish Széchenyi Baths in the City Park. You will also find plenty of thermal hot springs and wells throughout Hungary. There are nearly 1,000 of them in the country, spewing in towns such as Bük, Balf, Gyula and Hajdúszoboszló.

The abundance of medicinal waters in Budapest is unparalleled even by international standards. The hot springs on the Buda side were used by the Celts and the Romans, and the name of Aquincum may also refer to the springs. (The name may be a derivation from the Celtic word for 'water', or come from the Latin aqua quinque, 'five waters'.)

Hotels which offer luxury accommodation and medical treatment are: Hotel Aquincum*****, Thermal Hotel Helia****, Thermal Hotel Margitsziget****, Gellért Hotel****.
