2. From Train Stations
– from KELETI or DELI Station take the RED line metro (M2) to ASTORIA. At Keleti train station walk strait out of the platforms, go under earth and turn left to Metro 2 entrance. After stepping out of the metro at Astoria, take the escalator. You will be in an underground plaza, not yet at street level. Walk strait and take exit H to the surface. Walk along Kossuth L. utca/st. Keep walking till second street on your left, which is Szep st, at the second street light. You will find GH at the end of Szep st, just after the Internet Café sign. Doorbell is on the wall left from the entrance. Push No. 10 at the doorbell. Come up on the stairs strait into the courtyard. Ginkgo’s entrance is on the left site.
– from NYUGATI Station take the blue line metro (M3) until FERENCIEK TERE. Come up from the metro on the left-hand side. To your left you will see a Catholic church, to the left of the church is the busy Kossuth L. utca. Walk along Kossuth L. utca for 100m/300feet until the first street, which is Szep st. You will find GH at the end of Szep utca, on the right side after the Internet Café sign. Doorbell is just on the wall left from the entrance. Push No. 10 at the doorbell. Come up on the stairs straight into the courtyard. Ginkgo’s entrance is on the left site.
Warning! Always have a valid ticket, since it is controlled in Budapest very often, especially on the metro lines! Fine is high!
Warning! Ask a local people for ordering you a taxi- if you need one. Avoid taxis just waiting for you in front of the train stations under all conditions.
3. From Bus terminals
– Bus terminals are next to metro stations. Look for line M2 or M3 and see the Train Station section above for further details.
4. By car
Szep st is a one way street, entering from Realtanoda utca/st is possible only. Keep in mind that there is no free parking in the city center. One day parking in downtown cost you ap. 15Euro in a parking house. Write us for further details.
5. Arriving late night
Budapest has a fairly good night bus service. Instead of M2 metro line look for 907 or 973 Bus, the stop is infront of Keleti Station on the surface. Instead of M3 line 914 or 950. Both cases make it sure to choose the right direction to ASTORIA station-. If you are there read instruction mentioned at section above.
WARNING! Money changing rates at the train stations- especially at KELETI- are at least 20% worst for you than in the city center.
WARNING! Public Bus number system was changed on September 6 2008. Therefore most of the hard copy maps dating earlier have incorrect information on public transport lines. Double check all information if it is not up to date.
