Taxi fare from Budapest airport to Le Meridien Hotel

Jump to last reply

We will be in Budapest in October prior to a River cruise. I was planning to get a taxi from the airport - I heard that they are now regulated with set fares, but my travel agent suggested that I just arrange a private car pick up for $60 US for 2 of us -nice after a long flight to have someone waiting for you, no hassle, no lines.

I thought a taxi would cost about $30 US including tip of 10%. And that using the taxi in Budapest would be straightforward and easy.
Anyone with recent experience in Budapest? Fast & easy or a hassle?
