EPCAS WGA Budapest – Tips Falko

At the airport:
When departing the airport please have your Covid certificate electronically available, it will be checked.

Transport to the hotel:
Outside the airport, there is a taxi box where you can order a taxi to the city center. The system works very well and is trustable. Price is about 8000 – 10.000 Ft. about 25 – 30 Euro, depending traffic. Travel time to the hotel is about 35 minutes. We recommend NOT to take any private drivers or other who try to fish you out it will be much more expensive.

Local Currency:
Hungarian Forint named shortly as FT or HUF.

Since Covid the currency dropped dramatically; The value for Euro is now 25% higher. Actual exchange rates are approximately 1 Euro to 350 Huf.

We suggest to pull money from an ATM. Otherwise in 50 meter distance from the hotel you have the best exchange office in the whole city (in terms of value).

The Hotel:
The hotel is located in the heart of the city center and the street we are in is (or at least was before Covid) the number 1 party sector in Budapest. From here you have all shopping and sightseeing attractions you can imagine.

PCR Test:
If you need to make a PCR test for your return trip or other reasons, we highly suggest: https://whitelab.hu/index.php/testsites

The website is in English and you can book your appointment online.

Costs are approximately 57 Euro. After the test, results will be sent online wihtin15h (no matter what time you do the test). They are open from 6:00 to 24:00 every day, 7/7.

The closest next option to the hotel is at Westend Shopping Center with following address: 1062 Budapest, Váci út 1.-3. Take a taxi, it’s less complicated.
