“My Place in Buda”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This latest visit confirmed my opinion of the Hilton in the Castle District. It is reasonably priced, safe, quiet and a little bit on the nicer side. The Castle District is a quiet area of the city with good food. A visit to the wine cellar in the hotel is also well worth your while. The breakfast is very good, and very quick. The view from behind the hotel is breathtaking, romantic, and not to be missed. I'll be back there again soon.

Room Tip: The second floor has some rooms with small staircases and windows that open to the street - very co...

The hotel is next door to Matyas Church and the Fisherman's Bastion and very close to the Royal Palace. There are also some great, reasonably priced restaurants nearby so the location is great. There are good views from the room and the breakfast area.

The service we had at the Hilton was excellent. Every single member of staff spoke perfect english and was very helpful and friendly. We were able to secure our bags securely after check-out too which was great.

The rooms were clean and had everything we might need, including a safe, an iron and ironing board, and a hairdryer in the bathroom.

The breakfast buffet was delicious and fresh, with everything you could possibly want including cakes!

I would recommend this hotel and if I stayed in Budapest again I would be happy to return myself.

I had an excellent experience at the Budapest Hilton in the Castle District. If you can tear yourself away from the view, it is a short walk to many sites and excellent museums. The hotel is spotless and the staff very willing to assist. I agree with another reviewer, this is the one of the best hotels I have ever experienced.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Danube.

I've been at Hilton last year for business: one of the best hotel I ever been!
Amazing and quite location with excellent view of the Danube river from the massive room, well decorated and always perfectly cleaned; spacious bathroom with both shower and bath tub.
Rich and various breakfast with fresh treats every morning, was hard going to work after eating something so delicious.
High quality as expected from Hilton Hotels.

This hotel is based in the Casle district of Budapest on the Buda side of the city.
Great views across the Danube to the Parliament building.
Hotel rooms are very good and the staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, from recommending somewhere to eat to arranging transport. Thankyou all we had a great holiday in a really lovely city.
One note of caution though. There is a bar across the road slightly to the right as you look from the Hotel enrtance whose entrance is gained via a small passageway.Beware the drink prices are not on display, the staff are surley and the prices ridiculous, ENTER AT YOUR PERIL>
Sorry to end on a negative so I won't.
If you stay at this hotel and avaoid that bar, you will have a great time. Try the baths for a anothergreat experience.

Room Tip: Get a room with a Danube view, it is worth the extra.

We stayed here for a long weekend and enjoyed the hotel. It has an excellent, quiet location with superb views from some of the rooms. We enjoyed the restaurant and bar but overall the hbotel does have a dated feel to it and needs a refurb. Staff were universally excellent and we particularly enjoyed the Executive Longe service.

Room Tip: Get one with a view - otherwise there are better hotels
