If you decide to stay a bit longer in Budapest than you'd originally intended a list of useful addresses and telephone numbers will sure come in handy - which is where Budapest Life's services section steps in! Have a browse of the businesses in our directory and hopefully you should find what you're looking for, whether it be a reliable taxi firm or some property gurus who can help you purchase that dream pad.
Filthy, tobacco-smelling overpriced cars, the drivers are seemingly "Trained" (If Hungarians can be trained to do anything honest) to put the price up over 200% plus in price (9250 HUF for a 2.5 km Journey, not even from the airport), the Drivers are either of Roma lineage or ill-educated villagers with no schooling (and personal hygiene and psychological problems) who become aggressive with passengers if you DON'T give them a minimum 15% tip AFTER overcharging Also phoning their number and even the controller is unable to ascertain the actual pick-up address, even when you speak Hungarian to them, a company full to the brim of illiterate FIDESZ- Supporting Gypsy village retards.
Arrived at Railway Station and got a City Taxi to take us on a less than 7 minute drive to our Hotel. Was charged €25 which I said to driver was an overcharge..our Hotel advised it should have been €10 or €12. What a lovely welcome to Budapest..City Taxi should not be operating..never use them..hope other Buderpest experiences will be better!!!!
Absolutely awful! Got in the taxi after the boat ride, went less than 2 miles back into the city on a cold night and the con artist told us to pay 18000 the taxi meter showed 8,000 huf but she said we had to pay 18000 huf because it was 9 pm!! It was a total learning curve I will never ever trust another taxi.
Please email lost phone in the taxi
Do not use City Taxi in Budapest. The diver's are con artists. Charged more than 5000 HUF for a 2km trip (should have been 1500 max). But gave him the 5k with a while load of other change because i always tip. As I'm getting out he says i only gave him 500. I was pretty sure i hasn't but stupidly gave him the benefit of the doubt. So i used the only other note i had, 10000 florints. He gives me 5000 back, but Indonesian rupees. So sly and relying on the fact most countries use small denominations. Won't happen again. Ruined the trip. Use Uber!!!
Awful taxi. Driver said it's 5000 forint for a ride which is usually not more then 2500! Moreover, we paid with 50 euro note and he gave back 10000 Indonesian rupees which is like 0.7 cents!! Tried to talk to the company and they didn't help us at all, will go to the police tomorrow
Driver was a con man....Taxi cost 5000Forint, we gave him 10000 Forint and he passed a 5000 Indonesian Rupees Note onto us
