Cost of taxi from Airport to central Budapest??? ....

Hi we will be coming to Budapest next week, and just wondered what sort of cost we should expect for a taxi from the airport to our hotel the Corinthia Royal ... near to the Opera house?

As our plane gets in really late, the buses etc aren't an option :(

Thanks!

Thanks for your quick reply!

Our hotel have just emailed me back to say that they offer a collection service for 6000 forints, so either option now sounds like pretty good value :)

Thanks again.

Don, The airport contracted company Fotaxi is actually 5800 ft for pick up and 3990 return if you save the pickup receipt. I've used them several times and give them a solid 'A'.

So apparently the in-bound has gone up about a Pound. The big savings is in remembering to save your receipt and then call; them yourself (don't have the hotel do it). You save big on the return and it avereages out to cheaper than any of the "private" drivers and certainly just calling any of the other taxis for a one-way.
