At the location that Tripadvisor gave you - Nagy Imre square - there isn't a bear head fountain, that is in the original photo. The reviewer mentions Buda Castle Gardens, but it is a different location. If I have time, I'll search for it there as well, but until that time, I give you the photo of the Bear Fountain in Nagy Imre square. It is a statue and isn't a bear head. It's cute, but a full bear, and isn't a beheaded one, and instead of spitting water it's a very thirsty one, seeking for something to drink.

It no longer works as a fountain and isn't in the location that the TripAdvisor map says... It is at the bottom of the escalator in the castle gardens.

Located at the Buda Castle gardens, this bear fountain is the head of a bear jutting out of the wall with a fountain attached. It's small and you could even miss it if you weren't looking around, though despite this the detail is fantastic.
