    • corinthia hotel to train station to get train tickets

      Budapest Jun 3, 2015 at 10:37 AM

      I am thinking of buying train tickets from Budapest to Vienna. Hungarian rail tickets must be printed on a machine at the train station if you purchase online. I don't want to wait until I am going on the train to print the tickets. How easy is it to take public transportaton from the Corinthia hotel to the station and back?

    • 72 hour travel card & other general questions

      Budapest Jun 2, 2015 at 11:00 AM

      Hi all,
      We are visiting Budapest in mid-October. We know we'll be using public transport, so considering the 72 hour travel pass.

      Does this work on all public transport? Trams / Busses / Metro
      Is it true that you don't have to swipe/scan the ticket - as long as you have it on you, the inspectors won't bother you?

      Even if we only used it to get from airport - city (and vice versa) it'll be worth it. Our hostel is right beside a Metro station on the blue line.

      On that note, we're planning on staying in hostel Maverick as we are a couple who want a bit of fun (we're both mid 20's so prefer hostel to hotel) but a private room en-suite. Maverick is working out at about 56 euro per night, don't think we'll get better value than that. Website is here:

      However, if anyone else can recommend a party hostel with private (double) rooms en-suite, please do let us know.

      Regarding our plans, we arrive Friday, so Friday night we're thinking 'Shipwrecked' boat party:

      And then on the Saturday night, the bath party. I am confused because the website ( is saying that SZECHENYI is only open in the summer (we'll be there in October) but when we try and book it brings us to SZECHENYI.

      On the Sunday night, we're thinking of just paying to go on a ruin pub crawl - can anyone make any recommendations?

      During the day, apart from going up to the Castle / Fishermans Bastion and then wandering around the river front / Pest centre, I am open to recommendations!

      Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

      What is a safe and convenient area to stay in Budapest?

      Budapest Jun 25, 2015 at 5:50 PM

      Hello - My son and his girlfriend are traveling to Budapest to get acquainted with the area prior to him beginning a fall course of study at Budapest's Corvinus University. They are planning on visiting at the end of August, beginning of September. I was wondering what area would be best suited for a young couple traveling independently for the first time to stay. They are considering renting an apartment through a HomeAway or Vacation Rental By Owner, or stay in a hostel, as they are on a limited budget. Does anyone have any recommendations? Once school begins in September, my son will stay in the school's dorm accommodation.

    • train from Budapest to Vienna MAV

      Budapest Jun 11, 2015 at 2:24 PM

      I have been in the MAV website to check trains to Vienna on September 7. There are only only 3 trains listed. There is supposed to be a way to book a return trip within 4 days to get a cheap price and access to all trains. I have tried a return trip but got the same trains.
      can someone tell me how to do this correctly?

    • Visiting Debrecen

      by olchikk Online Now May 30, 2010 at 12:35 PM

      Good evening
      I am planning to visit Debrecen in summer and that's why I got couple of questions. Will be pleased to get a response and advises.
      I am flying to Budapest. As I understand from previous posts there is a train terminal at Ferihegy 1. So the first question: is it easy to get a train ticket? I mean if there are ticket boxes or ticket desk. If it is a desk, are people there speaking English? if it's a box is there information in English? I am afraid that I am not able to speak or understand Hungarian :)
      From time table I see there are many trains going to that direction. Is there difference between those trains? Are there always tickets available? The time of my arrival is around 4pm
      OK let's think that I found tickets, train and arrived to Debrecen successfully. I suppose to stay in Nagyerdo hotel. I found on the map there is a tram line. Where can I buy ticket? I could not see what stops the tram makes. Will be the stop far from hotel? How many stops is it from railway station? Is there information about stops inside the train?
      That's enough for now. I hope to get some answers. Who knows maybe then new questions appear on my mind.
      Thank you in advance

    • help - debrecen travel

      by tatota Online Now Nov 28, 2009 at 9:27 PM

      i got a lot questions,

      let me explain

      I arrive 10:35 PM (22:35) in budapest, then i would like to take a train to debrecen (the same day or as soon as possible). so, the first question is, can i take an airport minibus to the Railway Station at that time?, because it's a little late in the day. i'll assume that i'll be able to do that, right?
      next question (second), which Railway Station do i had to go? because i been reading , and sometimes i found recomendations to go to "Keleti" and other that i should go to "Nyugati Pályaudvar", to answer this second question keep in mind that i'm looking for cheaper trains fare, it doesn't matter they are less comfortable. Well i hope someone read this and help me, i got another questions but i think these are enough for now....

    • Best way to get from Debrecen to Romania

      by ec3-globetrotter Online Now Jul 2, 2008 at 3:22 PM


      I might be going to Debrecen in a few weeks depending on how easy I can get to Romania. After visiting Debrecen I would like to go to Sibiu in Romania but any other city along that way in Romania would be fine as well.

      I have seen that there are trains which take at minimum about 10 hours. Pretty long for such a short distance. Does anyone know if there are alternative ways to get to Romania? Are there bus services? If so, can you give me some pointers to web sites (I could not find any so far)?

      thanks a lot

      How much time do i need in Debrecen? (and other q's)

      by Drugness Online Now Oct 14, 2007 at 10:49 AM

      Hello all.
      I'm planning on visiting Debrecen for 2 days and 1 night in early November. Maybe it's not the best time of year to go to the city but will i have enough time to see everything a tourist should see in a 24 - 30 hour time frame?
      Are there any monuments around which recall the Battle of Debrecen? I'm thinking there isn't but maybe there are some other types of historical monuments?

      I've read something about a military band festival... when does this take place during the year?

      Many thanks everyone

      Phone numbers in Debrecen

      by malashen Online Now Mar 23, 2007 at 7:32 PM

      I am trying to get hold of an old Hungarian friend of mine, and I have her old number in Debrecen that doesn't seem to work: 36-52-326-875. My guess is, the phone number has changed. Is there a way to find out what should I dial now? Altrnatively, should someone from Debrecen be so kind to be willing to help me out, I shall send an e-mail with the address in Debrecen, so that perhaps one could check at the local phone book. Many thanks!

    • WiFi or Internet access

      by MartinMcD Online Now Nov 23, 2006 at 4:38 AM


      I was recently in Debrecen learning Hungarian on a Summer School course. Unfortunately phone calls home from my mobile proved to be very expensive. Does anyone know of any WiFi hotspots or internet cafes where I can use Skype to call home. I am going back in January for 2 weeks and the calls home are likely to be more expensive than the flight out to Hungary!

      Is Satu Mare the best/fastest way to go to Sighetu Marmatiei? Any infos regarding train, bus and maxi taxi schedules?

      Would anyone happen to know any hotels/other reasonable accommodation near the Fonix Hall in Debrecen? I'll be attending a sports event there and I haven't been able to find out the actual address of the Fonix Hall, making it hard to book accommodation.

      Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    • Getting to Debrecen

      by mandaa Online Now Apr 17, 2005 at 8:31 AM


      Does anyone know how I can get from Nagyvarat (Oradea in Romania) to Debrecen? I've tried searching for train connections in Eurail, Hungarian Rail and Romanian Rail, and I haven't had any luck. Both places are pretty near, and I thought that trains would probably connect them. Alternatively, can I take a bus? How much would each cost?

      Also, does anyone have any ticketing information on the Gymnastics European Championships in Debrecen (June 1-5 2005) Like how to get tickets internationally, prices and things like that. The official website has nothing on ticketing and the organizers don't reply email enquiries!

      I'd greatly appreciate any replies, thank you!
