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

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