We stayed in the Castle Garden from 26/30-Jan-13. I am more than happy to recommend the hotel to anyone travelling to Budapest. Enough is said in other reviews about the location, the rooms, public transport etc and I would echo everything that they say. But it was the staff who were willing to go the extra mile when my wife and I decided to walk back from Pest (on our first night) but avoided going up to the castle. Trying to read a poor map at 2300 hrs under poor street lights is not the easiest thing to do. Cue a phone call to the receptionist on duty (Dora) whose English was faultless and the taxi found us 5 minutes later! We had a great time in a great city and that was in no small way due to the hotel.
The location is wonderful. You are about 300 m from the entrance to Castle Hill. From here you can see everything especially the awesome views of the Danube. I would recommend the Hospital in the Rock as a place that you must see. The only pity about it being that they do not allow you to take photographs inside. From Castle Hill you can get anywhere in the city using public transport, taxi, hop-on, hop-off bus (I recommend the Red Line) or simply enjoy the castle area.
We enjoyed everything about this trip - even the sub-zero temperatures - and intend to return at some point in the near future. We will stay in the Castle Garden.
