Budapest: Two or Three Night 4* Stay With Flights, Groupon from £99

Found 4th Oct 2012
This is a pretty good deal. I know the Atrium Hotel - it's definitely the full 4* quality. Right on the Danube, very central ie walking distance to central Budapest, just a couple of minutes walk from the Chain Bridge. Built a few years ago.

Settled centrally within the 'City of Spas', the Atrium Fashion Hotel boasts a trendy boutique elegance that contrasts gently with the Hungarian capital's neo-Gothic grandeur and complements the pulsating nightlife. Make a move with today's Groupon at Atrium Fashion Hotel from Crystal Travel:

The Hotel

Making a splash with four stars and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, the Atrium Fashion Hotel is a chic urban auberge that offers guests luxurious hospitality just moments from the Grand Boulevard. The hotel's atrium bar and cafe showcases the interior's fresh, vibrant style, with bright angular furnishings and blue lights lighting up an open space of split levels which lead to the rooms. In the suites, classic styling and sound-proofed windows are provided to give city visitors a calm enclave for relaxation in-between city explorations.

Seem to be going a bit quickish, if you're interested get a move on ;-)
Don't want to be a killjoy but it should read as £198 and not £99 as you must buy 2 (double occupancy only) price is misleading in my opinion.
Looks interesting but does anyone happen to know please what it costs to get from and to the airport per person per way and what the transport options are?

Any other tips to share please?
I looked into this recently and you can book 3 nights for 2 at the same hotel in November (didn't check other dates) through their website for €150 (£120). Flights with Ryan Air (from Stansted) amount to £54.88 for 2 in mid-November.

£87.44 per person. Groupon charge £129 for the same thing.
Just came back yesterday for trip. Bus from airport to metro line 3 is £1.00. Does not go into town so need to get metro after bus- again another pound and need to but tickets to be put into machine each time. 3 day travel pass £14.00. NEVER SEEN AS MANY PEOPLE LOOING IN BINS AND AT THE AIRPORT ONE CHAP WHO LOOKED RESPECTABLE TOOK OUT SOMEONES thrown away sandwich and ate it. Nice city but takes a while to get used to the transport (very confusing at first) but once you know how to use it becomes better.Personally I would book my own flight from regional airport and book hotel yourself - unless you live near stansted.

Just checked the same thing, I found hotel was £36 for 2 nights and flight from £53 (stansted) with fees in november saving £40 ish. Groupon deals are mostly overpriced and the original prices that you are supposed to saving from are rediculous. Worked prices as per person also for comparison.

Also found 3 nights from Manchester .... flights £39 and hotel £54 so £93 each for 3 nights. There are deals about for city breaks for sure without using the likes of Groupon.

Hotel was with travelrepublic.co.uk and Flights with bookryanair.com
@konimitsu - thank you
Groupon have their uses.

Eg here: sure, you can find the odd flight from Ryanair to Budapest that, if you buy the hotel rooms independently, will save you a few £s.

But - Ryanair don't fly there from Gatwick. Try booking a cheap return fare with EasyJet in November and you're looking at £80+ each just for the flight.

Whereas Crystal have prebooked convenient dates at a low price.

Somebody mentioned Ryanair - Bud from Stansted for £54.88 for 2. OK, I can believe there are a couple of options at that point. With the £6 each per sector fees (ie £24 of your £54.88) you've managed to find flights for 2, return, for about £34.88 or £8.50 each way. Which would suit anybody with the flexibility to go midweek.

Now I'm not saying you've exaggerated here or anything BUT I DIDN'T SEE ANY FLIGHT OPTIONS AT £8.50 EACH WAY!!!

In reality, most Ryanair flights in November, maybe 99%+, are quite a bit more than that, with fees you're looking at nearly £50 each return and that's still going midweek.

Booking through Crystal, they've no doubt block booked a load of return flights with various airlines and have negotiated discounts, same with the hotel.

Groupon get a slice but you still get a flexible, discounted city break option.

If I could be arised I could show you many options of flights from Stansted and Manchester with the hotel and get it less than the groupon deal weekends and midweek.

The point is the groupon deal is not a great deal, maybe for some dates it is ok but both the price and the er 'original' price can easily be beaten if you spend little time looking.

It is always good to have alternative choices and viewpoints.
You may not be arised but I would like to see the evidence.

I'm assuming you are missing out the £24 booking fee (for 2) and if you include that there is no saving.
Did not miss the booking fee it was included...earlier there was a £9 flight coming back into Mcr no taxes no online check in etc a special offer one... bargain. I seriously am not going so no longer need to look for flights but they are there if you check through the dates. A few £39 all in fares Stansted too inc the £12 booking fee...

No point arguing over it, I was not the only one to find them....the longer this thread goes the more boring it becomes.

Pick the dummy up and find another deal somewhere, maybe you will make the newspapers again!!!!!

But i want to 8 nights stay with flights.
The fine print though suggests that surcharges will apply if popular dates get booked up. Well ALL dates in February are apparently booked and are now attracting surcharges .... I managed to get a slight reduction in that by complaining and threatening to go back to Groupon for a refund. The effect of this offer is to make everything very popular, so prices are going up for independent bookers. The pricing of going via Easy Jet and booking direct with the hotel is effectively the same cost now if not slightly cheaper. So NO saving at all - and it took 4 chasing phone calls to get the booking sorted. Just hope that there are no problems now with the hotel and the flights .... Only advantage is potential protection by ATOL
