Danubius Grand Hotel Margitsziget
Ranked #66 of 334 Hotels in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I was staying in this hotel for a conference. It has a unique location on the island, you do not feel that you are in a city, but in a forest, full of big old trees, birds singing, green grass, thermal waters, friendly and helpfull staff, very good food.
Only bus 26 crosses the island. In order to reach the touristical attractions you have to cross all the island to reach the Margaret bridge.At this end, close to Margaret bridge there is a dancing singing fountain..very nice.
The rooms are outdated. Pretty high ceiling. You can hear well the neighbours.The conference facilities were great. The spa and fitness facilities are in the neighbouring hotel, you can reach through a corridor.I would visit again this hotel.

I read reviews on this Hotel before I booked I was a little shocked to see some bad reviews. However I have since been and stayed in Budapest and we stayed in the Grand Hotel Margitsziget.

So this is my honest opinion ( Fantastiic Hotel ) great location a little out of the way you need a taxi or bus to get to town but the location is perfect in the middle of a beautiful park on a small Island in the middle of the river very peacefull no noise.

I have traveled to many countries and strayed in a lot of hotels this was by far the best, all the staff, reception, bar, cleaners very helpfull and very polite a special thank you to the door porter very nice chap.

The room we had was very clean and we loved the decor of the hotel just like going back in time, you will have trouble finding a hotel with as much character as this one.

I personally think this hotel is more suited for the over 25 age group but some younger ones may still love this.

Myself and my partner had a great time in this hotel and recomend it 100% hope we can visit again one day.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled as a couple

One of the eldest hotels in Budapest, located in a great part of Budapest. Margit sziget is really beautiful island, especially during a warm autumn days when the leafs are playing with various colors. We have never used a public transport and walked all the time. All of the monumets and famous places are within a walking distance. And to see a Budapest in the evening/during the night with all the lights? Lovely!
Hotel itself is a bit old fashioned but ok for us. Our room was clean and spacious, everything works well and the stuff was friendly. Wellness (pools & sauna) was included in a price. Breakfast was also ok, wifi in a lobby, free parking spot, nothing to complain...

I only stayed one night and didn't eat here other than breakfast so have limited experience of the service but the room was spacious and had a lovely view of the Danube and city of Budapest. The room was comfy enough but faded and in need of updating. It was clean though and perfectly adequate, just not as exciting as its facade and location suggest it could be.

Dear Valued Guest,

We appreciate your efforts for having taken your time for a report on TripAdvisor website, concerning your recent stay in our Danubius Grand Hotel!
Referring to your comments about the rooms, yes they are old and have the charme of the last century. The furniture is very valuable, they are antique furniture but we hope that our owners in the UK will have the possibility to give a "facelift" to our rooms very soon.
We would be very glad to able to inform you first on our refurbished, new rooms and hope we can welcome you then again at our hotel for a real relaxing.
Best regards

Great spa and warm swimming pool for family. The hot water is from hot spring, so we could keep hot inside our body even we went out late night. The hotel is placed a little apart from the city center but it wouldn't be problem if you drive there. The room had enough space for 2 adults and 1 child. I can recommend this hotel.

Stayed 6/4/14 - 10/4/14
The reception on arrriving was excellant our bags where taken from the taxi ,checking in took moments .we were then taken by the bell boy to our room. The room thou a little dated ,was clean and spacious with a great view of the Danube.
The restaurant was excellant with live background music in the evenings. The breakfast was self service.
The spa pool was excellant , we didnt take any treatments .
The island has the benefit of being quiet althou remote from the town centre. Once we discovered the local buses on the island ,this was no longer an issue. We then appreciated the serenity of the setting.
If you want relaxation the hotel is ideal. If you prefer to be in the town centre and its attractions ,this hotel is n't for you .
Incidently the spa was a real luxuary so maybe the Gellert would be a good choice

Room Tip: We had a river view ,perhaps spoilt by the high rise appartments on the other side.

The room was clean and comfortable staff helpful and friendly, food good to very good only criticism would be no breakfast tea or milk in the room, there were two tea bags and two tiny pots of creamer delivered on request but that's your lot! if you wanted another cup of tea ring housekeeping and yes two tea bags and two creamers, seems very penny pinching when everything else is fine. We found the room very quiet but hotel not very busy, time of year I suppose.

Room Tip: Overlooking the river is nice and interesting watching the amazing boats going past.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Rest in surroundings fit for an aristocrat A stay at the Grand Hotel Margaret Island will leave you feeling like royalty from the turn of the 20th century. The fin-de-siecle architecture is as elegant as it comes, and huge windows offer stunning views over the Danube or the ancient trees of Margaret Island. If you’re after a little pampering – or indeed treatment for a medical condition – you can take advantage of the wellness facilities at the adjacent Danubius Health Spa Resort Margaret Island, fed by the mineral-rich thermal springs that emerge nearby. The sister hotels are linked by a heated underground tunnel, so you don’t even need to set foot outside. The hotel’s range of top-quality facilities and services, and its leafy location in the middle of the Danube, make it a popular venue for conferences, weddings and other events. Margaret Island’s lush parkland is perfect for relaxing strolls, while sporty types will appreciate the fact there are running paths, tennis courts, bikes for hire and a swimming pool within a stone’s throw of the hotel. Furthermore, the hustle and bustle of the city centre is a short hop away by public transport – you can even take the ferry there! ... more   less
