Hilton is part of the tourist attraction

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 11, 2005

We stayed for 4 nights in May 2004, We flew with Easy Jet for £45 each from Luton. The regular room cost $90 a night, I do not think that sort of deal will be on offer again but you never know. The hotel was lovely. The room was spotless and was everything I expected, when Hilton gets it right. The Hungarian staff were a bit brusque but not overly so. Overall the service was fine. The location is excellent since you look out onto the Fisherman's Bastion. From there you have the definitve view of Budapest and the Danube.
Highly recommended - I'd give 4stars.

Unique Quality: Within the hotel are the remains of a monastery and there is wine tasting in the bowels of the old building. The weekend buffet should not be missed - good selection great prices. Don't always take cabs use the fabulous tram/train system. You will never wait long and they are clean and so efficient..Buy the pass - they have inspectors that check up on obvious foreigners. The complimentary shuttle to the Hilton from the Airport needs to be arranged but that is a real bonus. Budapest is changing so be quick to get a taste of old Budapest.

The Hilton Budapest existed already in Communiste times and I really cannot understand that is was possible to build such an ugly building so close to the fisher bastion and the Matthias-church.

Unique Quality: As a matter of fact it is a great location for a hotel, it simply is a desaster for everyone looking AT the Fisher Bastion and its surrounding from a distance !
When driving up the hill with your own car, you will get a seperate entrance-chip for the gate , as soon as you checked in the hotel.

Directions: Up on the hill, next to Fisher-bastion . Click on my picture and see the ugly building in the middle - it looks even worse from a bigger distance.

In Castle District

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

Stay was ok. For whatever reason the front desk people just never seem very happy (nor helpful). Its a nice location in tems of being rightin the Castle area. The rooms on the back of the hotel have great views of budapest, especially the parlament building. Can walk to the chain bridge in about 12-15 minutes so Budapest is easily accessable from there.

Wish this hotel provided more information about regular things to do in Budapest.

Unique Quality: Great view of Budapest available.

Right in Castle Area and walk right outside to see Castle and Castle view.

Workout room is not very good - tough to get a good workout - you have to rely on walking around Budapest.

Executive lounge provides good breakfast buffet in the morning.

The hotel shuttle from the airport is free for the Hilton Budapest - the only hotel that can say that - so it does save you some money.

Directions: Right in the Castle Area, right next to the Mattius Church.
In the picture its just to the right of the church.

Old and New at Hilton Budapest

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 13, 2004

If you're looking for a luxury location on Castle Hill, then the Hilton has to be your choice. Built in 1976, the builders of the Hilton incorporated the wall of an old Jewish cloister and enclosed the Gothic remains of an old Dominican church, but in a way that allows the public to visit the church remains. Even the windows are tinted a shade of brown so that when you look at the hotel, it blends in with the surrounding buildings.

Unique Quality: Some have lauded the Hilton as an example of seamlessly blending the old with the new, while others criticize it as being obtrusive and even gaudy. I'm undecided, but the location and service are all one expects from the luxury chain.

Directions: On Castle Hill, accessible from the funicular, Varbusz, or bus 16.

A real shame....

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)

We were wondering what was this big ugly building at the right of St Matthias church... We were thinking of some state building from the communist period! What was our surprise to discover it was in fact the Hilton!!
That's a shame to defigure like that the historic Castle District; part of the World Heritage designated by the UNESCO...
Even worse they are proud of that since they use it as a marketing argument...
Sure the clients should have a beautiful sight from their room!! I have just checked it, this is one of the preferred hotels of my company in Budapest. If they ever send me there for business, I'll definitely chose one of the other available hotels by solidarity with the people who have to stand the sight of this crap...
