Before Travelling to Hungary

Useful Checklist
Before Travelling to Hungary


Hungary, being one of the Schengen member states (along with Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland), does not require entry visas for EU citizens or tourists from the USA, Australia or Canada if you stay less than three months.

For visa applications - arranged by guests or their agencies - with the respective embassies, the hotel supports travellers with a reservation confirmation letter.

For assistance, please contact our Reservations Team at


Hungary applies EU (European Union) legislation and restrictions.


The hotel recommends that guests be present at Liszt Ferenc International Airport Budapest (BUD) for security check and boarding procedures two hours prior to their flight departure time.

Budapest remains one of the safest cities in the world. However, we strongly advise that you use common sense and take precautions in circumstances where petty crime and scams might occur. Do consult our Concierge Team regarding your risks before you go out. They have appropriate insight and will offer informed safe choices for you.

Beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers in crowded areas, at touristic sites and on public transport.

Some bars and clubs, especially in the vicinity of five-star hotels, unscrupulously overcharge, quoting exorbitant prices, and enforce payment under duress.

While taxis in Budapest display various logos, all are yellow and their rates uniformly regulated. Drivers are expected to produce a receipt upon completion of the ride. Do not accept restaurant or club suggestions from the driver.

Do not change money on the street. Only banks and money changers affiliated with a bank are allowed to change money.

Once again, you are safe in Budapest so long as you sensibly exercise caution. We strongly recommend that you consult our Concierge Team about your plans and carry their contact number with you, should you need assistance when away from the hotel.
