Picked this hotel after reading the reviews here, and it's just perfect. Only disappointment is the Gym, very old equipment, substandard. And the hefty price of the breakfast buffet, I think euros 27 isRead more a little bit too much
I chose this Hilton for re-visiting Budapest after 15 years. So I did not want it left to chance to stay in a welcoming room with a nice view. Hilton offers rooms with Danube view and in many instancesRead more (though not in all) Hilton proved to be of reliable quality.
On arrival we were upgraded to the executive floor which was, of course, a hugh benefit. Drinks and food choices in the executive lounge were very good. Staff was friendly, though a little indifferent at time at reception, concierge and breakfast restaurant. The atmosphere in the breakfast restaurant was rather bustling and not very much inviting for my taste. We tried the Lobby bar once and were quite surprised to pay for 2 club sandwiches and 2 glasses of wine the equivalent of 55 Euros. This is much compared to other restaurants in direct neighbourhood.
The room was spacious, the bed had a very good mattress, the bathroom was big. And the view gorgeous. The thing is that this side of the hotel had morning sun only.
There is excellent connection by public transport by bus to the underground. At night this district of Buda becomes very intimate and the air is day and night a lot better than down in rather polluted Pest.
I would chose the Hilton Budapest again!
-- And Budapest did change after 15 years but still has much of its very specific charme, due to the inhabitants.
I just want to confirm all the good things which have been said about his hotel here. I spent 6 nights in a top floor room with danube view and must say it's certainly worth the extra money. I was a bitRead more disappointed by the restaurants in the castle district (but that's not the Hilton's fault), I tried several and found Café Pierrot to be the only acceptable choice (I think I'll write an extra review for that restaurant) in terms of tasteful decoration (the food there's excellent as well).
The castle district is somewhat remote, as has been pointed out, but the walk downtown is scenic, and it's a pleasure to return to the peaceful Hilton after a busy day in the city. The service is what you would expect from a hotel in this category; the one thing I disapproved of was that there's no simple Continental Breakfast option. It took me a few days to accept the idea to pay 27 Euros for coffee and some bread and jelly - I don't like to start my day with a rich american-style breakfast, although the buffet certainly offers excellent choices for those who wish to satisfy more than half of their daily calories need at breakfast. But hey, maybe I'm just a cheapskate! I had lunch at the Dominican restaurant (which is very good), enjoyed the bar a number of times, and found the wine cellar interesting. If I return to Budapest I'll definitely consider staying again at the Hilton.
Not only was the room and service great while we were there a day after we checked out the staff called Germany to resolve a problem my wife had finding our boat that had moved due to flooding. All thisRead more at 25% the rate of a hotel in Amsterdam.
We stayed at the Hilton for New Years Eve and had a really good time. Our room was immaculately clean, the staff were helpful, and the breakfast buffet was good too.
The Hilton provided us with a freeRead more 'pick-up' service to and from the airport by means of a 24hr service mini-bus. That said I have just looked at their website and it says 'for a small charge' so maybe it's no longer free!?! Anyway it was very easy, just go to the Airport Minibus Service Desk in the airport arrival hall and check-in. You shouldn't have to wait too long for a bus (we only waited 5 mins) but the journey time can vary as it does stop at other hotels too... we didn't mind as we were new to Budapest so we just sat back and gazed out of the bus window! Then, before you leave, get the concierge to arrange the return journey. Easy!
The Hilton is situated on top of a hill, sandwiched between the Fishermen's Bastion and the Mátyás Church, overlooking the River Danube and across to the Parliment building and the Chain Bridge.... so you've basically got four of Budapests main attractions on your door step. The view from the hotel is fabulous, especially at night.
The only small problem with the location, being on top of a steep hill, is that the nearest metro stations are a little bit of a walk down hill, which can be exhausting on the way back up... it snowed heavily while we were there so it was really slippery too!
I would highly recommend dining at the 'Rivalda Cafe & Restaurant'. The food was great, they had a good and varied selection to chose from and it's within easy walking distance from the Hilton. Head towards the castle and it's situated near the Castle Theatre on the left handside of the road.
We booked a table in the Hiltons Dominican Restaurant for the New Years Eve Gala dinner, which was a little expensive but well worth it! There were loads of different courses and the food was fantastic. At midnight they opened the restaurant curtains so that we could see the fireworks going off over the Danube....spectacular! They've got a lovely stained glass window in the ceiling of this restaurant, which is worth a look too.
As with most hotels, and especially the Hilton, avoid the minibar! We found a little corner shop just down the road from the Hilton (go left out of the front doors and it's across the street a little further down) which sold the same items for a tenth of the price!
I would definitely go back to the Hilton if I returned to Budapest as the view alone makes it very special.
We stayed at the Hilton for a romantic break - what an excellent decision. Our room was on the executive floor with breathtaking views of the Fishermans Bastion and the Danube beyond. The room was fantasticRead more and we had use of the executive bar for snacks, breakfast and drinks etc. We ate in the hotel restaurant one night and the atmosphere was great , we had one night's dinner included in our booking but the "extras" - wine/eating a la carte made it an expensive evening. The castle area is beautiful (I recommend visiting the caves under the castle - especially if like us you visit during a heatwave!) and it is easy to get around Budapest - the bus stops just down from the hotel. Take an evening cruise down the Danube (but don't forget the mozzie spray in the summer - I was bitten to pieces). It's very rare for me to want to revisit a place but I would love to return to Budapest and I would certainly stay at the Hilton again.
The view is beautiful from this hotel and the area is quite nice but the service was less than great and needs improvement. My room was not what was reserved and the hotel was not interested in correctingRead more their mistake. When they reluctantly changed my room, they gave me the corner room that looked over an alley-still not what I reserved with a Danube view. There were a few problems with the room such as the bathroom light not working and not being fixed. I still rank the hotel highly because of its view, location, room size, and the condition of the room and hotel. Its perfect in those areas.
we spent a couple of days in Budapest and stayed in this beautiful hotel. The room was nice and spotless and the view was spectacular. Make sure you book your room with the view on the Danube!!
the breakfastRead more table had a great selection of food and the staff was extremely helpful.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone!
If you dont stay at the Hilton Budapest (castle district) for anything else - stay for the view! When you book please be sure and ask for a river facing room - it might cost you a little more, but I canRead more assure you that its worth every penny.
I am sure they have little web cameras to get the reaction of the guests when they enter the room and walk towards the huge windows and take in the breath taking views of the fishermans bastille (which you are in the middle of) the river Danube, the parliment buildings and the chain bridge - even more beautiful at night when they are illuminated.
We organised a pick up from the airport through the concierge and the driver was there waiting for us as promised, there were four of us with a case each and it only cost around 30 Euros.
Otherwise the hotel is lovely, clean and the staff are very helpfull and friendly. Some reviewers have commented on the food and how expensive it was - we didnt think so, the ambiance in the restaurant is lovely and so are the staff, they bring out the main courses covered with large silver domes and present you with it - what a novelty. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced.
We also ate at the restaurant opposite, I dont remember the name, but it was also lovely, I would recommed the hungarian deer stew - melt in the mouth!
Unfortuntatley the Mattias church is under going some work at present, but you can still marvel at its beauty. We took a riverbaot down the Danube, that is well worth while, stopped on Margit Island for an hr and hired the four seater cycles - lots of hillarity - maybe we would have ben better hiring one of the golf buggies!
Our only regret is not getting there sooner - our plane broke down in Edinburgh, they let us off after two and a half hrs and we missed our flight to Budapest! Bloody BA! However it was well worth the planes, trains and automobiles to get there.
My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Buda in Budapest for four nights during Grand Prix weekend. This was our second visit to Budapest as we stayed at the Gellert Hotel in August 2005 (see my review ofRead more that stay). On check in the female receptionist was very helpful answering our questions and readily giving information. My requests for the room had been fulfiled in that we were allocated a room on a high floor and were able to see the Danube from the room. The room was excellent, very clean , a good size and well planned. Our bags were delivered to our room by an equally helpful employee who appeared to be very keen to help us in any way he could and did not hover in anticipation of a tip . Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice to suit all tastes. We encountered the concierge quite a few times and he was always happy to help us in whatever capacity. We used the bar once a day and again all staff were pleasant and helpful.. At no time could i fault anything in this hotel. The hotel's position has been commented on in other reviews but there is no problem crossing to the Pest side of the city, number 16 bus is both frequent and cheap. The view from the Hilton is excellent. This is definitely the hotel to stay at in Budapest. The cost for four nights at the hotel was £372 including breakfast. Brilliant.
