“Characterless but comfortable, good value and well situated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

The West End Hilton is part of the West End shopping mall. This is convenient is some respects but certainly lends and air of 'could be anywhere'. To my mind the Hilton brand has this feel anyway, and for many this may be its attraction. But i like to feel i'm somewhere different when i am somewhere different. All that said, this is a very comfortable hotel with excellent service, and during the cold dark month of February it's excellennt value. You're about 200 metres from the glorious Eiffel studio designed Nyugati railway station and it's easy to travel by tram or metro to business or tourist destinations. I'd never stay at this hotel if i were on holiday, but for business it will do very well.

Perfectly placed to reach main attractions (25 min walk) great shopping centre in same block as hotel. Room clean and roomy, bath and separate shower. Breakfast good selection, staff pleasant and helpful. Located next to tube station and main rail line. Tesco and aldi stores for supplies to hand too. All in all highly recommended.

I stayed at the Hilton last week with a friend for the weekend and this hotel is wonderful. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the breakfast was amazing with loads of choice of hot and cold foods. The only slight negative was that the hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the city centre but we walked everywhere so didn't matter. There's a massive mall attached to the hotel so make sure you have room in your suitcase!!! The main train station is right next door which is really useful if wanting to travel elsewhere. Rooms were really nice and clean and we had a bath and a walk in shower in the bathroom. Would stay there again.

I stayed in Budapest for the first time in January and following a two and a half hour train ride, I received a very warm welcome at reception. Absolutely no faults with Hotel and service. It is next door to the train station and a Shopping Centre. The Metro is less than 5 minutes away and buses even closer. The location meant I had a choice of transport or I could just walk. Breakfast was great too with a good choice. I didn't eat in the restaurant as I wanted to try local cuisine around the city. I would definitely look at staying again.

Just returned from a three night stay, we had a lovely room on the first floor, clean and spacious and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely with lots of options, poached eggs are recommended. We found the hotel easy to find and got the bus and train from the airport - tickets are extremely reasonable (about £1.50 per person) which covers the whole journey - take the bus - 200E from the airport - buy the ticket for the full journey from the ticket shop just as you come out of the arrival lounge turn left, the bus stop is outside the airport, again just turn left as you leave the airport and the stop is well marked. You have to change to the Metro but the lady at the ticket counter will helpfully show you where you need to change. The Hilton hotel is easily found on the 1st floor of the Metro Centre. We purchased tickets for the hop on hop off bus at the hotel reception and would recommend this, the option we purchased included the boat trip up the Danube. Would recommend this hotel for the service and location

Room Tip: We emailed the hotel and asked for a recently refurbished room as previously recommended and had a p...

We stayed here just before Christmas.I have stayed in a few hotels in Budapest through work but this is the first that I would use for personal trip because the price is right the service was excellent including the quirky server at breakfast. Food was very good and it's right next to a big shopping centre.

This is one of the best Hilton hotels that I have ever stayed. It has great amenities and excellent customer service. This hotel is located inside the Budapest Westend Mall. You can not beat the convenience of that!
