We were in the Hilton Budapest in what seemed like the hottest 2 days of the year. Needless to say, it was a relief to get out of the hot and humid weather and step into a beautiful, luxurious hotel. The location is the best thing about this hotel. It is right next to Fisherman's Bastion and St. Matthias Church in the castle district. The rooms are quite large and the beds were very comfortable.
To me, they loose a few points for the service because there were a couple of points, standard in most hotels, but the Hilton didn't have or couldn't do:
One, as I said, it was hot. And because the curtains of the room were drawn when we arrived, the room was quite warm when we entered. We quickly turned down the temperature but, after an hour, it was still quite warm. This is when we called for a fan, just to cool the room faster, but housekeeping said that they ran out. Same thing the next day.
Two, upon leaving, my friend asked to change his remaining Hungarian Florins back to Euro but the hotel staff said they didn't have a licence to do that!? I don't understand. Currency exchange is pretty standard in all 4-5 star hotels.
Three, the first internet connection they offered was SLOW. For 35 Euro per day, one would think that they could offer something faster. In the end, we used another internet connection (IBAHN). I just didn't appreciate not being offered this option,
So, all in all, we had a very good stay. But just keep these 3 points in mind.
