The handicap room was excellent as well as everything else at the hotel. The service was super. It would be nice if the staff could speak and understand English better in the future. The buffet offered lots of delicious food.

The staff is very polite and helpful. The location is not really in the center but taxi rides are inexpensive. Quiet area around hotel. Very close to the Donau river. Local Merlot wine is good. Buns are tough. They can't boil eggs (completey fluid, peeling is impossible). After 3 attemps (asking the kitchen twice) it was still rather soft and...

Situated close to Danube River. Half of the rooms have balconies with a beautiful view to Danube and Margaret Island. Very clean. The spa is excellent. Very good breakfast. Helpfull staff. Not too far from Váci Út and a Metro station.

Every time when you had to wash yourshelf in the shower, I had to build a dam of towels to make sure that the water would not go into the bedroom or spread through whole of bathroom to...

Really unhappy that I wrote to the hotel before arriving to check on availability of the iron, and received a written reply that one could be made available - and when I arrived, was told it couldn't be (and that I should not have received an email saying it was). May be a minor point to the hotel, but it...

In the entrance hall it is not easy to see where you can have breakfast, where the conference rooms are,... So more guidance/clear pictograms would be better. I prefer a harder mattress. For the rest, no other remarks to be made.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Work or pleasure? We cater for both! What makes the Helia so special? That’s a matter of perspective. This is a wellness hotel with a wide range of fitness and spa services for guests in need of some pampering. However, it’s also a fully equipped conference hotel with all the facilities to host top quality professional events. The wellness and conference hotel is located in Budapest’s dynamic XIIIth district, on the bank of the Danube. The city centre is just 15 minutes away, while the nearby Margaret Island offers a host of recreational activities – from cycling, tennis and swimming to relaxing walks in beautiful parkland. Whether you’d like to unwind after work – or get away from work altogether – our wellness centre is the perfect spot. It has an adventure pool, swimming pool, sauna and a two-storey fitness club with stunning panoramic views. The hotel’s thermal bath is fed by natural thermal water from Margaret Island’s springs. Guests arriving by car can keep their vehicles safe in the hotel’s own car park, and travel into the centre by trolleybus or bus. ... more   less
