Hotel Check-in Requirements

By booking this DreamTrip I understand that the hotel may request a credit card upon check-in. The hotel may request the credit card in order to: a) place a monetary hold of US$50-200; or b) hold for incidental, security or other charges. By booking, I acknowledge having received notice of this potential charge and accept that Rovia™ recommends a credit card rather than a debit or bank card be used in the event the hotel requests the card. I understand that any such request made by the hotel is outside of the control of WorldVentures™ and Rovia and is strictly a hotel policy. Should I have questions concerning the hotel’s policy, I accept responsibility for contacting the hotel independent of Rovia or WorldVentures.

  • Destination
    Hungary’s capital city lies upon the tranquil Danube River and is undeniably one of the most beautiful destinations in Europe. Vienna Gate Square’s Baroque churches and rococo homes serve as an idyllic backdrop for bustling city streets, cafes, clubs and boutiques. Major attractions include the Buda Castle (also known as the Royal Palace or Royal Castle), the Hungarian Parliament Building, the Great Synagogue and Hercules Villa.

    Hungarian Art Nouveau architecture is prominent in Budapest and was heavily influenced by eastern styles in the late 19th century, including those found in Syrian and Indian art of the same period.
