I stay here regularly for work. The hotel is located away from the main tourist area/drag, located in the 'West End' area of Budapest next to a large shopping center and cinema complex and right next to the main train station. I stay here because it is very convenient for my work, but for tourist stays it is a pleasant 20 minute walk from the main tourist areas - castle, chain bridge etc. Being away from the main tourist drag the Hilton Budapest City offers very reasonable room rates for a very good standard of accommodation and service.
Main things you need to know -
Rooms are standard Hilton fare - smart, functional generally larger than the usual and most importantly comfortable.
Check in and check out is always quick and hassle free.
Staff are always polite and professional - always with a smile and ready to answer questions or provide assistance whenever needed.
Food - breakfasts include the usual warm buffet, cold meats, breads pastries, fruit and yogurt etc. Always I've found to be a high standard, plentiful and served in an area that is large enough to accommodate a busy hotel without being a hassle.
Dinner menu is limited but of a good standard. The dinner menu is a little more expensive then the surrounding restaurants, but a reasonable option if you don't want to venture out on one of your nights stay.
So all in all a good hotel experience with no disappointments so far after 20+ stays. Would I stay here if on vacation? - for the room rate and standard of accommodation, I would. It is a bit away from the main attractions, but taxis are cheap, Budapest has a good under ground system and it is a pleasant 20 minute walk along the river from the main tourist areas.
If you want to know what to expect when travelling to a city you might not have been to before and want to play it safe with your hard earned money, it is a good, reasonably priced option. Its a bit like McDonalds abroad - you always know what you are going to get.
