train from Prague to Budapest

We will be arriving (late at night) in Budapest with the train from Prague. In the past we sometimes had problems with which station to get off at as some of the cities have quite a few that the trains go through (sometimes we got off too early!) Is our station, Keleti pu, well signposted?

Keleti pu. is a terminal station usually. Even if the train goes further, it has to stop for longer time. One can realize that a lot of people take off the train.

You may also realize some minutes before arrival that the train goes through a longer bridge. This is above the Danube and rather noisy. Sometimes there is announcement on the train, too.

Sorry, but the train doesnt cross the Danube! It comes from Slovakia!

sorry, then I was wrong regarding the bridge. The point is that Keleti is significantly bigger station than the others on the way. You will not miss it unless you sleep :-)

Do you know which train will you take? The one that I found terminates in the Keleti. In this case no issue...
