Reviewed November 12, 2013

We enjoyed our stay immensely at Castle Garden. We arrived very late on the first night of our stay, but the reception was ready for us and knew exactly who we were. The welcome drink card was also a nice touch, as well as the complimentary teas, coffees and soft drinks in the lobby each afternoon.
Throughout the stay the staff were very courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean and modern, if a little hot at night. The beds were a little short on pillows, although more were provided if necessary.
The location of this hotel is fantastic and a perfect base for your stay - very quiet day and night, yet a minute's walk to the beautiful castle district. The hotel is also very close to a large metro station if you don't fancy the ascent from the river after a day of walking.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Budapest for a short break.

We just spent here a few days, but we can strongly recommend to everybody, who would like to visit this impressive city. The location of the hotel is perfect, everything (shops, restaurants, public transportation) can be found nearby. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff was polite, friendly and helpful during our stay. All in all, it was a pleasant stay there,so if we will return, than we will choose this hotel again!

I strongly recommend this hotel! The rooms are very clean and large and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Although it is situated a bit far from the city center, there is a subway station nearby (this being the station before DELI PALYAUDVAR - i do not exactly recall its name). Also, the lady at the reception proved to be of help when she provided us with lots of information regarding the places to visit in the city and the transportation means and routes.

i would recommend this hotel. its very close to the castle and has a very nice garden. the rooms are large enough, clean and comfortable. the lady in the front desk has been very helpful. she also arranged us a cruise tour which was very nice. parking is also available at the hotel. the location is about 10 min walk to the metro station. when coming back to the hotel you need to walk up a hill which maybe tiring after a long day of walking. so think twice if you dont like walking. other than location, great place to stay.

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed. The hotel is adjacent to Buda Castle precinct and it is only about a 20 minute or so walk to Chain Bridge via the funicular. The location is far superior to any other hotel we saw while in Budapest.

The hotel is modern, clean and efficiently run. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was excellent and we had the benefit of a balcony. The hotel has a bar and restaurant with an outside seating area where there is also a pizza oven. Breakfast was fine although the hot food was a bit overcooked, in common with most smaller hotels. Evening meals in the restaurant were good quality and value for money.

Getting around is easy. A very frequent bus passes the hotel and travels to one of the metro interchanges in Pest via the castle and Chain Bridge. Alternatively, it is only a short walk to Szell Kalman Ter transport interchange which provides access to trams, buses and the metro.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep with the door or window open, the rooms that face the castle are probably quiet...

The hotel really is in the perfect spot. Although it may not be what some reviewers consider to be 4 star it has many benefits that for me warrants an excellent rating. It is spotlessly clean, the friendly and knowledgable staff all speak good English. Rooms are fine. Nice touches such as complimentary tea,coffee and soft drinks available in foyer at certain times. Fabulous being able to sit out on the lovely terrace of the hotel's adjoining restaurant called Riso. They have a wide selection of dishes on the menu and hotel guests receive 15% discount. We had dinner one evening and lunch once. Food was well presented, tasty and not too expensive. Breakfast however was fairly average, shame considering quality of evening meal. The Castle Garden has a relaxed and pleasant ambience and is sensibly priced, great choice for those visitors wishing to max value within a budget.

Top of the list of reasons why I would certainly stay again has to be its perfect location. Just 1 minute walk from Vienna Gate, all of the many sights within Castle District and fabulous views over the city are right on hand. Easy to go down to the Danube, out of hotel turn left, don't go thru gate, instead cross road and head down Hunfalvy, go down first flight of steps, a couple more flights and you will be on Batthyany, past Post Office & you are right opposite Parliament, took us 5 mins (tad longer going back up!) Getting over to Pest side also easy, No 16 bus from outside hotel takes you over Chain Bridge and into city. Feels strange but you catch the bus going up the hill, goes around Castle District before going down other side. Many other transport options such as Metro 2 close by, ask at Reception for more details.

A great little hotel.
