... at thermal pools. On the ceiling there was this really beautiful mosaic with lots of different pictures. We got our own little change room, one for the girls and one for the boys. We got changed and walked into the room with all the pools, there was twenty four pools in the whole complex. In the room that we went into there were medicinal pools which were supposed to cure different illnesses. The smell in there made me feel ...
... at every single statue and building and anything else you can possibly think of. Each statue we got a detailed explanation for at least ten minutes each. At about the fourth stop, we finally made one of our better decisions of the day and ditched the walking tour. We ended up at a coffee shop that was more Americanized (We find out later just across the street there was a Starbucks)! We then decided to do a little bit of souvenir shopping and checked out all the little ...

He was a green beret in the war and had fought many tough battles. We all became friends with him and actually saw him on the streets a couple times while walking around. In the evening we all agreed to meet up. We also met a couple from Krakow, Poland whom came out with us as well. So together with Dzemal, the polish couple, Jen, Courtney and I, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Pension Helios Budapest
Loved the Helios
I recently spent several great days at the Helios. The English-speaking owner and staff were fantastic, incredibly friendly and helpful. The ample breakfast was delicious. The room was spotless and very comfortable. I cannot fault this place. Do not be put off by the bus trip into the centre of town. It is no trouble at all, takes only a few minutes and is worth it to stay in such a great place. I highly recommend the Helios.
I stayed at the Helios for three nights this July. I found it generally matched up to the positive comments I had read on TripAdvisor.
Excellent Hotel - Good Location
First of all the staff were most welcoming and always had a friendly word. The rooms were comfortable and it was no bother regulating the heat to a comfortable temperature. The area in which the hotel is situated is very pleasant and the bus service into town is regular and never crowded. In fact the public transport for Budapest is exemplary. For a capital city the rates represent excellent value for money. We had a really enjoyable 4 days with you.
Far from the center, but clean and friendly. Avoid their suggestion for car rent
It is a friendly and clean pansion. If you rent a car, it makes life easier to get to hotel. Avoid though to accept the hotel's suggestion for a private rental car company. Most likely they will try to cheat. Use, instead, one of the well known multinational companies.
Great Value !
I stayed in the Helios with my boyfriend for the weekend of the Hungarian Grand Prix. Our room was really clean and comfortable with a lovely balcony. Its situated in a quiet (and expensive!) residential area. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff were very helpful and friendly, and spoke excellent english. The room rate for that weekend was extremely good value (the most expensive weekend anywhere in Budapest) - we paid €80 per night for the room including breakfast. The bus service to the city was very frequent and efficient. I would highly recommend this hotel.
I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Helios in May 2004. The rooms are cute and very clean. Esther the owner goes out of her way to make your stay incredible. I spent 45 Euros per night with breakfast. By bus to downtown Pest is 15-20 minutes and about $.70 each way. Great way to meet the locals. Also, good restaurants near the hotel. I will definately stay at the hotel again.
Stayed at the Helios Pension in November 2003. It is situated in the Buda Hills, in a nice quiet area with a number of expensive houses in the location. It is easy to get into town and back on the bus which is 5 minutes walk away. The rooms are clean, comfortable and most have a balcony looking towards the city. There is a breakfast included in the room rate which for a single room cost me 34 euros a night. The staff are friendly, speak English and are happy to give advice and pass the time of day. The hotel is non smoking. If you want an inexpensive hotel, in a quiet area and don't mind a 15/20 minute bus ride into the city centre I would certainly recommend this hotel. Their website is easy to find, gives all the information you need and is it cheaper booking direct.
