Very modern fresh clean and tidy hotel in great location within a short easy walk to Buda Var ( Castle). The hotel is smaller so feels quite homely and friendly. The rooms are a nice size with lots of built in wardrobes and a large well appointed bathroom.
Good air conditioning to keep the room cool on the very hot summer days. The room had a large opening window, although the aircon is set to turn off if the window is opened.
The bed was very comfortable with nice clean sheets and pillows. The room has a nice level of decoration including a comfortable chair and small desk with chair as well.
Good metred parking across the road and the metres are free from Friday night until Monday morning which was a nice bonus.
The hotel had free internet in room which was a nice touch.
The only thing I didn't like was the unfavourable exchange rate the hotel uses for billing to convert from euros to forint. The hotel bills in euros but has a bad exchange rate if you want to pay by forint rather than euro.

This is a great hotel next to the Castle Hill. At first, I thought this hotel was going to be out of the way because of the drive from the bus station but it's very centrally located to the Moscow train station and the Number 16 bus that heads straight to the Pest side of Budapest. This place is quiet with modern ammenaties and a hearty breakfast buffett.

This was our first trip to Budapest and this wonderful hotel helped us enjoy the city so much. Rooms were comfortable and quiet and the breakfasts were a real treat. Unbeatable location - busy Pest is just minutes away by bus ,tram and underground and within a 5 minute walk there is a modern Mall and a daily produce market. The bus up and down the castle hill runs every five minutes or so. It is wonderful having the castle precint to yourself for a pre breakfast walk or after the crowds have let to see the sun set. We missed catching a concert up in the grounds but it would have been a great setting. Dont miss the very reasonably priced Michelin restaurant , 21,a couple of minutes up the hill in the castle area and the beautiful free sculpture garden and art Gallery. Gellert Baths are an easy trip away as are most sights.

I came to Budapest with a friend last month. We shared a twin room at the hotel castle garden. Arriving at night, it was initially tricky to find, but once you know where it is, it is easy enough to find. It is a short 7 minute walk from the Moszkva Ter metro station. The area is a nice quiet leafy one, yet very close to the old city, just outside the city walls and next to the Vienna gate. About 5-10 min walk to Fisherman's bastion. There is a big shopping mall nearby. The price of the room was very reasonable. There was a fridge with minibar. The room size was excellent for those of us used to small european city hotels. Reception staff were very helpful with all my queries and were very patient, spoke good English.
All in all, would recommend this hotel.

It was my first trip to europe and Budapest was by far my favourite city. This hotel is on the Buda Hill, 5 minute walk from the top of Catle Hill and the Fisherman's ramparts. The hotel manager picked me up from the train station and was very kind and knowledgable and gave me valued information on the trip over (how to avoid tourist scams, good restaurants, etc.).
The room was beautiful and clean. The staff are very friendly and were kind enough to compliment me on my attempts at hungarian although I'm sure the pronunciation wasn't there.

The restaurant and its terrace are a great attraction to this hotel. Reasonably priced and delicious the chef is outstanding. The soups and sauces are always delicious and there is a good selection of wines and Tokaji.

This was the best hotel I have ever stayed in...hands down.

Arrived in Budapest without luggage (lost by Hungarian Airlines). Staff provided toilitries and directions to nearest stores to purchase necessities. They also contacted the airline on a regular basis to determine when our luggage would arrive.

The hotel is quite modern and extermely well appointed. It has a lovely restaurant with an outside terrace that is very relaxing after a long day of sight seeing. The location of the hotel so close to the environs of Buda Castle is excellent. However, if you are walking in other areas of Budapest, be prepared for the hills.

Food was excellent at the hotel and the service was wonderful. Budapest is an absolutely beautiful city. The views across the Danube to Pest are not to be missed.

Castle Garden is a nice, modern hotel. We liked the room, luxury bathroom and the location near the Castle.
Anytime again.
