If you want to immerse yourself in old Budapest this is the place for you. The service was very good and as a Hilton Honors member they upgraded our room and we were given complimentary breakfast in the restaurant as well as access to the Concierge lounge. The breakfast in the restaurant was excellent and a great bonus for us - the views are great also. The location may not be for everyone - it is away from the hustle and bustle of the Pest side - but it is absolutely magical in the evenings when the day tourists are gone and and you have the place practically to yourselves. There were enough restaurant options to keep us satisfied (at least for dinner) and everyone we tried was very good in terms of service and taste (hopefully I'll get to those reviews soon). We arrived by train from Vienna and arranged with Hilton for a pick-up at the station. We were met on the platform and whisked away in minutes - this really took a bit of stress away after reading about unscrupulous taxi drivers (this should be getting better since the taxis are now required to be metered). The cost for this service was not bad and after taking a couple of metered taxis while we were there it really was comparable. Once at the Hilton you can walk the Castle District easily. We also walked to the train station to go to Szentendre and we walked across the Chain bridge to the Pest side - we do like to walk though! Our first day there we did book a city tour through Hilton and that was my one regret - for the price it would have been much better to do the HOHO bus and be able to have more time control for the various sights/attractions. On a side note do be aware that the Hilton sits right next to the church and if you are not an early riser the church bells may not be that appealing.
