The Aquincum Hotel was built in the mid-nineties and acquired by Corinthia Palace Hotel Company Limited in 1996. It is located on the banks of the River Danube on the Buda side of the city, across the river from the famous spas at Margaret Island. The hotel is surrounded by medieval streets, wine bars, restaurants and its own green park. The main feature of this business and leisure property is its well renowned natural spa, which derives its therapeutic water directly from Margaret Island.
