Hilton Budapest City

The Hilton Budapest City is one of two Hilton Hotels in the capital of Hungary. For our weekend trip to Budapest, we decided, among other things, because of the good access to the airport for the Hilton on the pest side of the Danube. Whether this was a good decision, make sure to read our review.

Hilton Budapest City – Lage

The Hotel is centrally located in the vicinity of the West railway station “in Budapest-Nyugati” and is therefore perfectly connected to the public transport network. In addition, the shopping centre is connected to the “WestEnd” directly with the Hotel and numerous shops, Restaurants, and entertainment venues. Additional points of interest, such as the Parliament building, are just a 15 minutes ' walk away.

Check-in

We arrived early Saturday evening at the Hilton Budapest City. I had made the Check-in on the previous day, via the Hilton App. Here I also got the good news that we were upgraded from the booked standard room to a King Executive Suite. So we had to get only at the reception sign and our room cards. The young woman at the front Desk was very accommodating and gave us some tips and maps for our city trip.

Hilton Budapest City King Executive Suite

Our King Executive Suite was big enough and had a crack a straight-line basic. It was very quickly clear that the Suite consists of two standard guest rooms.

Directly after the entrance door is the bathroom with bath and walk-in shower was on the right side. In the hallway there is also a large wardrobe with Ironing Board and two robes.

Due to the lack of decoration, the living room looked a little bare. The furniture, a Sofa, an armchair and a relax something had spent lost. As a Surprise, a welcome greeting to the hotel was on a side table. Thank you for the sweet Treat and the champagne – so you feel welcome as a Diamond status guest!

The bedroom looked, with the large closet and the king-size bed, well thought out set up. In addition, there was a Desk and a stocked Minibar.

The device you noted the age of the hotel clearly. The not-quite-modern Design and the wear and tear of the cabinets were clearly visible. The upholstered furniture and the bed were seemingly renewed once, as there were hardly any signs of wear. We were, however, mainly due to the cleanliness of our Suite satisfied.

Hilton Budapest City, Breakfast

For Breakfast we went to the hotel restaurant “Arrabona”. This is located in the mezzanine floor below the first floor. Due to the many Windows it has a pleasant bright and friendly. In the warm summer months, you can go also to the outdoor terrace for Breakfast. The tables were covered and the Service was always trying to keep everything clean and tidy. Only a few seconds after we had sat down, a waiter and offered coffee and orange juice. So I expect the Service in a five star Hotel.

The Breakfast offer was clearly distributed on the three Buffets. There was everything, what one was of a good standard Breakfast, at first glance, in the usual way. For a Hotel in the upper class, however, we expect the one or other Extra. In addition to the Buffet we could order freshly prepared egg dishes. As a result, the positive overall impression received!

Hilton Budapest City – Executive Lounge

Because of our Hilton Diamond Status, but also by a room in the Executive area, we were able to visit the Executive Lounge at the Hilton Budapest City. The Lounge is located on the fourth floor of the hotel.

abstract

Hilton Budapest City is not a very luxurious Hotel, but it offers a solid quality with a good price-performance ratio. The rooms are a bit old and need renovation. The bathroom is absolutely clean and tidy, but not luxurious. The Lounge and the gym are in comparison to other Hilton Hotels are extremely good. Also the Service at Check-in, in the Lounge and at Breakfast was friendly.
