Stayed as a family trip October 2014 (slightly late review!) Location: Excellent, 5 mins to Chain Bridge, at the foot of the hill of the castle (we could see the castle from our room). More of a walk to Pest and attractions there but walk was very pleasant. Close to restaurants. Food: Reasonable selection of items both hot and cold... More

My wife and I stayed at Carlton in March, and had a good experience overall. The problem was the service. The room wasn't cleaned after every day, towels weren't always changed, the soaps weren't replaced and the whole service atmosphere was lacking the willing to help. The breakfast was OK, but didn't changed for the whole week we were there.... More

Great location - was brilliant to be able to walk up to Castle Hill in the evenings. Just a couple of minutes walk from local transport as well as the hop on/off tourist buses. The reception staff were really helpful. The room facilities were great, working and clean. They provided free water - hot and cold, which was was fantastic.... More

The location of the hotel is ideal to investigate a wonderful city. The entrance is off two roads. One way is a steep climb up steps and the other is a shorter distance down hill. One of our party did not find steps easy but you can use your room card to enter the garage where there is a lift... More

This hotel was perfect in nearly every respect. The location, two blocks from the Chain Bridge across the Danube and 15 minutes from the main shopping/dining area of town was unequaled. Walking up the street from the hotel one is at the Fisherman's' Bastion and the Castel area in less than 15 minutes. Rooms were clean and staff was helpful.... More

This hotel is ideal for exploring Budapest. Set very near the Danube your right on the bridge for getting to the other side in 10 mins walk. The hotel is clean, warm , friendly and welcoming. Don't read the reviews that say the staff weren't nice - they were excellent and couldn't do enough for us!

The Carlton was great value for money, we booked as part of a BA deal for 4 nights in February and couldn't be happier! The hotel is perfectly located at the foot of the funicular up to Castle Hill and extremely close to Chain bridge which Links Buda withe the rest of the city. Pest is a short walk away... More
