Travel to Budapest

You can reach Budapest by plane, by train, and by car. By plane you arrive to Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport: http://www.bud.hu/english. To help plan your journey, the website also includes a useful route planner http://www.bud.hu/english/passengers/flight_information/destinations which indicates all direct and connecting flights to and from Budapest. From the airport your can reach the hotel by taxi, minibus, or public transportation. The taxi and minibus are fairly priced (about 20 EUR for the taxi).

There is only one taxi company contracted by the airport - Főtaxi (http://www.bud.hu/english/passengers/access_and_parking/by_taxi).  The minibus service matches travellers going towards the same area of town. It is cheaper (a return trip is about 20 EUR per person) and still very comfortable. It can be booked via the website: https://www.minibud.hu/en When you arrive at the airport you need to follow the orange line to the Airportshuttle desk and present your booking or just book there.

It is also relatively easy to reach the hotel by public transport: the 200E bus takes you directly to the end of the metro M3 line. To reach the hotel you can catch the M3 and change at Deak Ferenc ter for the M1 towards . The hotel is very close to the Bajza utca stop.

By train you will reach the city at one of the big train stations (Déli, Nyugati or Keleti) depending on which direction you are coming from. The Hungarian train service company’s (MÁV) website is: http://www.mavcsoport.hu/en. The German http://www.bahn.de/p/view/index.shtml also includes information on how to travel to Budapest by train. All train stations are easily connected with the chotel by subway: Déli and Keleti are on the metro M2 line, Nyugati on the metro M3 line. You neeed to change at Deak Ferenc ter for the metro M1 (direction Mexikói út). The hotel is very close to the Bajza utca stop. The M1 metro line also known as the Millennium Underground Railway is the second oldest in the world, as it was built from 1894 to 1896.

If you are travelling by car please find the GPS information on the website of the hotel(http://www.hotelbenczur.hu/en/contact-information). For using the following motorways yo have to buy a motorway sticker: M1, M3, M5, M6 and M7 (available at border crossing points and at petrol stations).

Travel within Budapest

The public transportation service of Budapest is very efficient and reliable. There are also trams and buses running during the whole night.  Furthermore, all the information on connections and timetables are uploaded to google maps, so you can just insert your destination there and get all the options. The company is BKK (http://www.bkk.hu/en/main-page/news/). For your stay the Seven-day Budapest-Travelcard would be advised, which costs about 15 EUR and is valid on all public transport for a week. Alternatively, one can buy single tickets (a bunch of 10 costs about 10 EUR, keeping in mind that when changing you need another ticket, except for metro connections). For all of the ticket options you can search this page: http://www.bkk.hu/en/tickets-and-passes/prices/. BKK has perfectly usable vending machines all over Budapest at most metro stops, including at the airport and at the Bajza utca stop of M1 subway line (http://www.bkk.hu/automata/). There are also vending offices at the airport and at many metro stations (e.g. at Kodály körönd, one M1 stop from Bajza utca). Please note that if you are a European citizen over 65 years old you are entitled to travel for free on all the Budapest public transport (you will just need to show your ID card to the ticket inspectors).
