“Wow, Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2007

Wow, What a hotel!!
A brand new development within a short walking distance to the Danube and tourist attractions. The hotel is very modern and well designed, the bedrooms are spacious, especially the bathrooms, they have a walk in shower as well as bath tub. Food was also fantastic. The hotel is connected to the largest shopping mall in Eastern Europe. All the staff were extremely helpful. I would definetely recommend this hotel for any stay in Budapest. Also for a little extra the view from the executive lounge are amazing!

A so so hotel with indifferent staff and incredibly expensive bar and restaurant which are dead and characterless, apart from suits on business. Rooms comfortable and large, location good, but I would recommend somewhere with more character and less cold efficiency.

Essentially a stylish, reliable & efficient new hotel. Five stars? Absolutely not, but does the job fine. There are one or two disappointments but these are offset by the comparatively low room rates. Certainly I have stayed in far worse Hiltons for far more money.

Good: most of it, general facilities, exec lounge nice, gym OK. Nice comfy chair in your room. Bathrooms excellent, shower + bath on exec (4th) floor. Opening window, hurrah, fresh air.

Bad: 1. The restaurant, don't go. Food appalling. Lunchtime buffet was fine but in the evening, yack. Terrible service and though deserted 5 out of 7 wine choices were not available 2. The bar. Smoky, grotty, boring, brightly lit. So much stylish decor elsewhere, yet not where you need it most. A failure at the drawing board. I have noticed this in other locations, Hilton doesn't seem to care about their bars. 3. Strange bedding. Two meagre individual duvets, laid side by side on a double bed. No overlap and not wide enough to overhang the bed. Sleeping involves lining up nice and straight, like a mummy. Don't move, or your toes will peep out the side. By arranging both duvets at a radical angle one could gain satisfactory coverage. Heaven knows what you'd do if there were actually 2 of you staying.

All easily fixed. Buy some duvets, get a new chef and refurb the bar. Avoid Minibar, just pinch some drinks from exec lounge. Concierge recommends Rezkaka for dinner - trust him it's a real treat.

We - 6 friends - stayed here at 3 twin bed rooms for a very short city trip. As Hilton GoldVIP 4 of us stayed at 2 decent twin bed rooms at the Executive Level, with the Executive Lounge open till 11pm. Even tough we booked non-smoking rooms we were put in smoking rooms which wasn't too bad. The 3rd regular room had the same amenities as those on the Exec. Level, just no access to it. The hotel is located at the largest shopping mall in Europe with direct access, next to the West End train station. Hotel is 30mins. away from the airport, metro station at the train station. Breakfast was ok, warm and cold buffet. Room itself was ok for a people travelling without large suitcase. We had to look for the inroom safe, which was located underneath the desk. Bathroom has separate shower and bathtube, shower head was a bit broken, my bath tower had black stains. Service staff, starting from check in, concierge and breakfast room were helpful and nice. Helpful concierge.

Just back from a 2 night stay at the Hilton West End. Hilton seems to have some great deals on this hotel so I opted out of going back to the K & K.

Check-in was nice and easy and they gave me an upgrade to the 4th (executive) floor on account of my Hilton gold card. It gives you access to the exec lounge all day (closes 2330) and for breakfast.

The lounge is spacious and offers all types of alcoholic/Non-alcoholic drinks. Breakfast was simple - sausages/eggs/bacon and the continental option.

I stayed here not long after it opened and had a great time although it was very expensive. Since then, they seem to have gone downhill recently - The joint efforts of the hotel staff and my company`s IT manager couldn`t get me connected to the internet in the room. My lap top seems to work everywhere else :)

The room itself was very nice and clean, with steam iron/ironing board, TV and desk - beware of the mini bar though - it must be the most expensive I`ve ever seen! Go into the Exec lounge and take some drinks back to your room - there`s a small space in the fridge for your own personal use.

The staff were really friendly, but major downside for me was the condition of the tiles in the shower - take a look a my pic......mould city!

  • Liked — The free drinks in the Exec lounge
  • Disliked — Mouldy tiles!
  • Tips/Secrets — Take some tile cleaner

We made it to the hotel after waiting for some time at the airport to locate our luggage - unfotunately it didn't arrive until 24 hours later!

The hotel was clean and the room was a good size. The proximety to the shopping centre was handy - particularly as we needed to buy clothes & stuff due to the lack of luggage.

The location of the hotel with respect to the sights was not the best, but if you don't mind the walk it's not a problem.

Budapest was great - we would certainly go back to the city, but would aim to stay in a more central location.

Nice, spacious rooms. Extremely friendly and helpful staff - they helped us locate and recover our lost luggage, gave us dinner recommendations, and allowed us to use the internet for free.

Excellent location next to the train station (Nyugati) and metro hubs. The back door of the lobby leads to WestEnd City Center, Central Europe's largest shopping mall.

One draw back - breakfast was not included in the room price. But here's a tip: the hotel is about a block from an underground metro hub with several very inexpensive cafe and pastry bars.
