Danubius Grand Hotel Margit-sziget

District XIII, Margit-sziget, Zielinski Szilárd sétány, Budapest, Budapest, 1138, Hungary

The older, much more attractive next-door neighbor of the Danubius Health Spa Resort Margit-sziget was built in 1873 by Opera House architect Miklós Ybl in neo-Renaissance style. It was here that the Hungarian writer János Arany, a regular guest in the late-19th century, composed some of his greatest novels. Ceilings are high, and rooms are decorated in Empire style, with red- or blue-upholstered antique-looking wood furnishings. Guests have free admission to the thermal's well-equipped spa facilities, directly accessed by a heated, underground walkway.

PROS

  • European spa experience on a budget
  • ladies-only times in the thermal baths

CONS

  • on an island and away from the more central bridge so transit to the inner city takes some time and work
