Please be careful and do not take a "no-name" taxi. Always choose one that belongs to a company.

The official taxi service provider of the Airport is Főtaxi. The cabs use a taximeter and a ride to the city center should typically cost around 6500 HUF (22 EUR) depending on traffic. All cars are equipped with a POS terminal, therefore credit cards are also accepted. Reservations can be made in person at the Főtaxi booths located at the exits at Terminals 2A and 2B. At the taxi rank in front of the stands, taxis are parking continuously waiting for passengers.

Reaching the recommended hotels & ELTE by public bus and metro

Outside the building of Liszt Ferenc International Airport Terminal 2, you'll find the stop of bus 200E and 100E. It's the terminus of the bus line so you needn't worry about which direction you should take.

From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. the bus 200E runs every 10-12 minutes. Earlier and later a bit less frequently. When it arrives at the other end of the line, Kőbánya-Kispest — the journey takes about 25 minutes — get off and follow the signs  to the metro station. It's the blue line or M3. Get on a train (don’t worry; it is the terminus, but make sure you’re taking one of the blue or white metro carriages and not a railway train as the railway station is next to the metro station) and get off at Kálvin tér (Square). The Mercure Korona Hotel and Ibis Centrum Hotel are located here.

The bus 100E runs every thirty minutes from 4:00 to 23:30 directly to Deák Ferenc tér. It stops at Astoria as well, it takes a five-minute walk to the hotels from Astoria or one stop by tram 47/49 to Kálvin tér. A special ticket must be purchased for bus 100E for HUF 900 – other tickets or season tickets are not valid for this service.

In order to plan your journey to the venues from your hotel or any place in the city, we encourage you to use Google Maps or public transport planners.
