“Another solo trip without 4 kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2009

Many other comments highlighted the upgrades treatment to Hilton Honors members. I am a HH but my wife and I did not receive that. On the plus side, since traveling by overnight train we arrived into the Budapest Hilton around 10am that is before check-in time. Around 12:30pm they provided a room (noticeable above US Hilton standard) but I had to go several times to the front desk to inquire a professional but somehow strict clerk. Budapest is a wonderful city and the hotel’s location is great including at least the adjacent view and attractions. However some would say that it is far from the touristy area. Believe me, if you a traveler, it is not. As always, other charges in Hilton hotels like telephone, internet, room service even restaurants are mostly affordable by business and Japanese or Arabian guests.

I would recomend this hotel. The location is key for Budapest. The location in the castle district is in the middle of most of the sights you want to see. Everything in the castle district is within walking distance of the hotel. The funicular is also close by giving you access to the chain bridge and then pest.

The rooms were great. The bed is pretty hard, but everything is clean. We had a view of the castle turrent and courtyard and was able to see the river and pest. The bathroom was nice, however we had an issue with the water being too warm. It was like the water temp started out at warm and only got hotter from there.

The bar downstairs is well stocked and has friendly bartenders.

The breakfast buffet is noteworthy. Not the typical continental and breads. There is a full assortment of food including scrambled eggs and bacon, lots of juices, and friendly staff.

The business center is a little steep. The smallest amount of internet use you can buy is 30 minutes and you need to use it in one sitting.

Overall, great hotel, would recomend to friends.

Nice hotel, definitely one of the premium places in Buda, worth the money. If money is not an object then stay at the Four Seasons, otherwise stay here. Staff is decent.

We stayed for our 30th wedding anniversary - when we arrived we were upgraded to a river view room which was fantastic...
The location could not be better, a great walk to Pest through the castle and gardens.
The hotel could not do enough for us, would recommend this hotel.
Good selection for breakfast, only had a buffet lunch once which was ok! you can find better in the local area.
Budapest is easy to get around and very safe.

We were very pleased with the rooms we had for our family. Each of the rooms had a view of the castle spire, Danube and Pest. The rooms were large and well maintained. The staff was helpful and polite. Breakfast was very good and included in our room rate. It included egg's etc. Bathrooms were large and modern.

Great location to tour the castle district and an easy walk to the funicular for the ride down to the river at the chain bridge and walk into Pest.

A good enough hotel, especially to take advantage of recent Hilton deals (2for1 etc).

Rooms and corridors upstairs are a little dark and dowdy, in need of a refurb. Definitely get a room with a view over the Danube to the Parliament building.

Breakfast was normal buffet affair and they specifically offered to make eggs to order. They fill up your glass with OJ, only for you to discover they have a range of juices in the buffet. Table service is reasonably efficient and smile-free, though this normal for Budapest and beyond.

All the services were fine but the place suffers from having no pool, which seems slightly abnormal in this city of baths and pools. We had a massage in the friendly (non-hotel) beauty parlour. Remember not to use hotel taxis in Budapest as they charge much more than normal ones - get reception to ring for a cab (esp Taxi Zona back to airport), which they will do, if slightly grumpily as though missing out on a comission.

The executive lounge serves up good fruit, reasonable central European stodge and drink in the evening but is not so essential in a town where food and drink can be bought reasonably pretty much everywhere else.

We stayed here for only one night, our last night in Budapest, as a treat before our return. Very pleased with our room which had a fabulous view. We also took advantage of the in-house masseuse. The location is amazing.
