Grand Margaret Island

Grand Margaret Island

Timeless Elegance, Eternal Style

Allow yourself to be seduced by elegance and refined style. In this Grand Hotel you can feel like a true aristocrat in a bygone age. The Grand Margaret Island Health Spa Hotel is Budapest’s oldest hotel, constructed in 1873 in the Neo-Renaissance style, designed by Miklós Ybl. The graceful elegance and refined interior of the historical building of the former Margaret Island Grand Hotel perfectly invokes the atmosphere of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since its opening, countless celebrities, artists, politicians, writers and journalists have stayed here. 

Enjoy gorgeous views of the Danube or the mature trees of the island from the windows of the elegantly furnished rooms. Savour memorable moments drinking coffee made with the antique Herendi coffee machine in the friendly atmosphere of the Viktória Bar.  Or savour a delicious  supper beneath century-old trees on the terrace of the historic Széchenyi Restaurant.

Looking to enjoy a wellness break or to restore your health? A heated underground corridor leads from the Grand Margaret Island Health Spa Hotel to the medical wellness centre of the neighbouring Thermal Margaret Island Health Spa Hotel, where guests can enjoy the health benefits of the Margaret Island hot spring water. Aside from the excellent quality of our services, the hotel’s unique location draws guests from far and wide to celebrate a wedding or host a conference.

Margaret Island

Health and Recreation in an Idyllic Setting 

You will be immersed in serenity as you are surrounded by the Danube, on this lush, verdant island studded with romantic lakes and ponds.  

The 100-hectare park of Margaret Island is the ideal place for a long stroll or engaging in some outdoor exercise, such as running, cycling or using the open-air gym. 

The medicinal water that rises to the surface on the island has been used for 150 years, and is derived from a unique combination of three springs. It has a low sulphur content, so you won’t smell the characteristic odour of thermal water normally associated with springs. The additional benefit of this is the water  can be taken internally as a drinking cure.

Guests of the Grand Hotel can enjoy the beneficial effects of the rich medicinal waters of Margaret Island in the full-featured thermal baths of the neighbouring Thermal Margaret Island Health Spa Hotel.

Great Base

Green Oasis in the Middle of the City

Once you’ve toured the island, taking in all its sights on foot or by quadracycle, just hop on a bus or even a boat and start getting to know our capital city and all its historical landmarks.
