Having heard about dubious taxi prices in Budapest, we pre-booked transfers from & to the airport via the hotel for HUF 12,000 & HUF 7,200 respectively which went perfectly. We were checked in by a trainee on main reception who was very professional and informative.
As Gold members we were upgraded to a street view room on the executive floor. The room (338) was large, spotlessly clean, with an enormous bed which was extremely comfortable. It had the usual Hilton freebies – toiletries, tea & coffee and daily bottle of water. It also had an in-room safe and multi-lingual TV, English channels including CNN, Bloomberg, BBC World & Eurosport.
The Executive Lounge had its own staff who helped us with bookings and general information (far more useful than the nearby tourist information office). A limited self-service breakfast is available in the lounge, but we tried the main breakfast in the restaurant as well which was also good with a wider choice. We ate in the lobby bar one evening which was up to usual Hilton standards. We found all staff in the hotel to be very friendly, helpful and efficient – reception, concierge, bar staff, luggage team.
The hotel has a luggage store, useful when you have a late flight. There is a taxi stand right outside, and of course a stop for the infamous number 16 bus which takes you over to Pest (reception can sell individual tickets, but if you want a book of tickets or daily passes, you need to get them from the post office about 100 yards away). The hotel stands on a historic square, right next to St Matthias church and the Fishermen’s bastion – busy during the day, but quietens so much in the evening you don’t believe you’re still in a major city!
We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay – this hotel is the best of the many Hiltons we have stayed in, we have nothing to fault, and is a credit to Hilton. We look forward to returning soon.
