The hotel provides all that services that make a guest to feel relaxed and comfortable. Especially the swimming pool and the spa (which is included in the room price) is the best way to end a tiring day in the city. Very clean and quite. Overall perfect hosting.

We didn't take full advantage of the spa but the rooms, restaurant and pool were nice. Close to metro and buses to city centre. We went for the Sziget festival and the hotel is nicely positioned midway between city and the island, 8 minutes walk to festival bus and less than €10 by taxi

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
