Stay in Budapest city center
Welcome to the MEININGER Budapest

In the center of Budapest, immediately next to the Great Market Hall on the Pest side of the city is the MEININGER Budapest Great Market Hall property. From here it is easy to reach many tourist attractions such as the parliament, the State Opera or the St. Stephan's Basilica. The Citadella is majestically enthroned atop the Gellért Hill above the city. After a short stroll along the Danube, MEININGER guests can marvel at the UNESCO-World Heritage Site on the Buda side and stop by the Gellert Thermal Bath for a relaxing break. Thanks to the nearby Fővám tér train station it only takes about ten minutes to reach the Central Train Station from here.

A well balanced breakfast buffet, delicious packed lunches to eat on the go, a longer sleep in with late check-out, a shuttle bus service to the train station and, of course, free WLAN throughout the whole property: With the clever services MEININGER Budapest Great Market Hall ensures that all guests feel good around the clock.
