“Beautiful views, wonderful room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The setting for this lovely hotel is right in the Castle district on the Buda side of Budapest. The views from the room windows on the water side were spectacular both day and night, and the area for walking or jumping on and off transit was right outside your door. This city surprised us, and we will visit again. There is a pulse to the streets, restaurants and shops. We purchased a 3 day Budapest transit card on line before heading on our trip. It was worth the money, and allowed us to get everywhere we wanted to go from just outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Request a room up a few levels on the River side so you can see the city, parliament and other views...

We stayed here for a couple of days (city-trip to Budapest). Travel from the airport already was a kind of "hop-on, hop-off" experience. We booked a mini-bus at the airport (luggage area), and as a result shared the mini-bus with some other people in different hotels in Budapest. As the Hilton was the last one stop on the journey, when arriving at the hotel, we already saw half of all the things to see in Budapest. (BTW, very convenient airport transport, buy a return ticket and they pick you up at the hotel when you request for getting back to the airport)
The hotel is located in an Unesco protected area, only (small) buses, taxi's and people living in the area are allowed to enter. The hotel itself is next to one of the major attractions in the Buda part of the city (actually the whole Castle district is a major attraction), and has an astonishing view over the Donau/Danube and the Pest part of the city. Especially views at night - from the executive lounge, or the hotel restaurant, or from rooms with river view - towards the Parliament across the river, are exceptional. The area around the hotel is really nice, and the hotel also has a list with good restaurants in the area (i.e. they don't drag you into their own restaurant, if you don't feel like it).
Apart from that, just a very good consistent Hilton quality, nice rooms, good service (even though they forgot about something we asked, but they 'made up' in an apology e-mail afterwards).
Nice, but not so big fitness area and sauna, no pool, but that is something you should experience in one of the famous bathing houses in the city anyway.
Especially if you can get a promotion rate (and there usually are some - as this is a business hotel, you should be able to find something nice during weekends, or if you book in advance), very good value for money.

Room Tip: Executive floor rooms with Danube view are probably the best

We booked a room on the Executive floor which gave us access to the Exec lounge on the same floor.
We arrived late in the evening and drive up to the hotel was pretty impressive. We were checked in quickly and room was large, clean and spacious even for 4 people. Liked the wooden window shutters.
View from the Executive lounge over to the Parliament buildings across the River Danube was amazing both day and night. And the hotel is located immediately beside the Fisherman's Bastion which we visited the next day where the views are even better. This hotel must have the best location in Budapest for views.
We had breakfast, with everythng we wanted and hors d'oeuvres in the Executive lounge and were well looked after by the staff. The lounge provided free WiFi access and there were pc's to use in the adjoining room but these were very very slow to load. We also booked a taxi from the hotel to the airport through the Exec lounge concierge.
There are buses that run from close by the hotel down into central Budapest.
The Buda area was very quiet at night, although this may have been exascerbated by the Beer Festival which was being held nearby at the time of our stay.
Wonderful place to stay for a few nights stay in Budapest, we would stay there again if visit in future

Room Tip: We booked our room through British Airways and got a very good deal. Would also suggest you book a...

The Hilton Castle in Budapest is located on the top of a small hill next to the city center. Rooms to the river have a spectacular view over the city, especially in the night. All other services and food etc are on 4 to 5 star (German) level. Taxi to the airport takes 30 Minutes. No pool !

All the modern amenities in the center of a historic district. We stayed in a Danube view room and had access to the executive lounge. The lounge has free wifi, but the rooms don't.. They serve full breakfast in the morning, snacks during the day, and heavy hors d'ouvres with beer and wine in the evening. There's a dedicated concierge in the lounge as well.

Room Tip: Danube view room looks out over the Fishermen's Bastion and the Parliament..

The location can not be beat- built into the castle with stunning views. We booked a double queen executive room, and were very happy with the room. As a Hilton honors diamond member, check-in was in the executive lounge instead of in the lobby. We arrived mid-morning, around 10 am, and were told the only room available did not face the castle, but it was out choice if we wanted to check-in early or wait for another room. We chose to check in early and the view from the executive lounge made up for it. I can not say enough about the staff working the executive lounge, and they would be reason enough to return to the hotel. Taking the time to talk to each guest, as well as helping with suggestion of what to do around the city,The selection of wine, beer, and different food throughout the day is excellent. We chose to eat breakfast at the restaurant both mornings, instead of in the lounge. Having a much wider selection downstairs we were happy to have the option. The room was very large for European standards, and was very comfortable even with 4 of us in the room. The only hotel we would return to in Budapest.

Room Tip: Executive lounge
