How to find us
Neumann Janos u. 1/E
Taxis are fastest and can be found in an official taxi stand outside the arrivals lounge. The cost is roughly €25 for the ride, but the travel time is about 30 minutes as opposed to more than two hours by public transit. (The official airport taxi is Főtaxi. Always order your taxi at the official stand in front of the terminal.)
To go by public transit for the equivalent of about €2, take the bus number 200E to Kőbánya-Kispest. From there, use the M3 metro (underground service) to Népliget. Change there for Tram 1, to the Infopark station. From there our InnoStars office is in a walkable distance in the E building of Infopark.
When arriving to Budapest on motorway M1/M7 turn right to Nagyszőlős/Bocskai út. Go along until you reach the river (Petőfi bridge).
Before crossing the bridge turn right and go along the riverside in southern direction. In 700 metres you will see the Infopark Innovation and Technology Centre. The InnoStars office is located in “E” building.
Get off the train at “Kelenföld” railway station. Take bus 154 to “Neumann János utca” bus stop.
