I have used BUDAPEST taxis at the airport and train station. Only use the cars in the rank and ignore anyone who approaches you, the meter will start w a small amount on it already. When I travel, I save the local hotel front desk number and a few local authorized taxis to my phone. The dispatchers speak English and it's worth the effort to not be stuck somewhere.
We prebooked private transportation from the airport to our hotel and were very satisfied. The driver was waiting for us and easy transfer. Less anxiety worrying about getting a cab, standing in the waiting line, etc. We booked through Viator and they were in contact with us any time we had a question or when we had to delay pickup an hour due to flight change. I am sure you can book as easily from the train station. Charge was $70, but well worth every penny.
