The historic city called Aquincum, which was located in the first century AD at the place of present day Óbuda, was the capital of the Pannonian province, occupied by the Roman conquerors. The two sections of Aquincum, a military and civilian settlement, were located between two amphitheatres whose ruins can be seen even today. The ruins of the surrounding ancient baths are also eloquent testimonies of the Romans' advanced bathing culture.
According to historians the thermal springs were used even earlier than this, in the Celtic era. The name of the ancient residental area was Aquincum after it can be traced back to two Celtic words ("aquae quinque") which mean five sources.
Those who are interested in the details of the history of Óbuda, can recall the ancient stories in the Aquincum Museum an the Museum of Óbuda.
The hotel opened in 1991 as the Thermal Hotel Aquincum, as a tribute to the ancient city and its baths. The spa of the hotel receives its healing water from a natural thermal spring on the nearby Margaret Island. A considerable part of the hotel’s medical treatments, described as „balneotherapeutic treatments” are based on thermal water. In 2002 the medical section of the hotel was transformed into a well-equipped, unique wellness center offering more than 50 health and wellness therapies.
The hotel has 310 spacious, modern rooms with bathroom, minibar, direct dial telephone, radio, colour TV with satellite channels and easy, high-speed Internet access.
