Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Good hearty breakfast. Interesting atmosphere of the hotel. Location close to the attractions of Budapest. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The disadvantage was not opened windows and poor air conditioning.

A very interesting alternative to the usual, the Fortuna was excellent value for money. Following the advice of other reviews, I went for the best accommodation available, and got a spacious room with wide views both up and across the Danube. And if you like a grandstand close-up view of cormorants feeding, come here. . It's a low price hotel,...

If you like to stay in a hotelroom most of the day, is this not a hotel for you. This is a hotel for those that want to experience something different than what they are used to. In a good way! We stayed here two nights, one day in a "dorm" and one night in a "standard doubleroom", the "dorm"...

Staff and Management The receptionists were friendly, though nothing exagerated, the only thing we've heard them saying in the 6 days we stayed was good morning, thank you and have a nice day. They all spoke English. They didn't give any extra information, though we didn't ask for anything either. The people in the breakfastroom were friendlier Services The hotel...

The Boat Hotel Fortuna is ON the Danube so that is a bonus but don't get romantic notions of a luxury cruise liner. It is clean and comfortable and appears to be an older cruise ship having a second lease of life tied up (bolted actually) to a wharf. As can be expected on a ship, the rooms are *very*...

I have spent three nights at the end of september by the Boat Hotel Fortuna: has been very heavy and we have been hardly able to sleep at all! The room was very old and dirty, the airco useless and noisy, the personell completely useless and unprofessional! There was even a marriage party on the boat and the celebrations went...

I did not get to keep our reservation and actually stay at the Boat Hotel Fortuna but I think it's important for people to know about my experience with them. My sister and I traveled from the US to visit with another sister who live in Germany. We were then all driving with my two nephews to Budapest. My brother-in-law...

We were living in this hotel at July 2012 for five days. There is nearby many shops and good restaurants. Metro is about 1km away but there is also bus and tram-line nearby. Centrum is about 4km away from this hotel. Hotel staff were very nice and helpful, breakfast is okay and food in restaurant called Lord Nelson was good....
