    All international tickets (To Prague, Munich, Slovakia and so on) work within a month from the date of purchase. Turns are not small therefore it is better to buy tickets in advance.

    No vending machines fo international tickets, so you need mostly 30-60 minutes to buy a ticket at platform 6

    Whereas the MÁV still issues handwritten international tickets, you have to reserve 30-45 min. for this during the rush days.

    This place is extremely crowded and blazingly hot in summer. The platforms are announced only very briefly before train departure.

    Beware those who try and help you with your bag down and take you straight to the taxi. It's an expensive service.

    Look out for the statues of George Stephenson and James Watt above the main entrance. They were two influencial British engineers who help pioneer the railways.

    Open air space so can be cold waiting for trains. If buying an international ticket on premise allow 30-40m. Can be very busy and you need to get a ticket to wait in line (like at a deli).

    The train station once must had been inpressive, now is just plain scary. The international ticket office seems to employ solely people who don't like tourists and are not afraid to show it

    Very nice architecture but definitely need a restoration. It should be more modern.. In a location which is very easy to go by metro.

    Taxi drivers are crooked at the train station.. Will charge 2-3 times as much to use and only cash. Avoid them from Keleti

    The train station is very old. It isn't good for a beautiful capital like Budapest. Needs to be renewed immediately

    Always tell your friends or anyone u know not to take taxis that r waiting outside, don't trust them at all, just call a taxi company. I hope the government do something about that.

    Do not use the official money-changer stands inside the station! Go outside and you will find places with a much better changing rates than inside!!

    As someone already has said, Mos Eisley! The ticket office for international trains is by platform 6, take a waiting ticket from the machines on the walls, but get the right ticket!

    Lockers for luggage r available downstairs, diagonal from the massive ticket windows. Although there's nothing 2C in the 'hood around the station (as of Sep 2013), don't plan 2 spend too hours here.
