Tired and Worn...
The location is spectacular if you want access to the castle. If you are good with the transit system then a bus stop is just around the corner. There is a little Android based phone that is a nice touch, but it needs some work to be a guide for the city. That said, it is a nice security touch for having a local phone and data for mapping. Android is not my thing so it was not as intuitive to me. The staff at the front desk were very nice and helpful.
The carpets were dirty, the bedding was well worn and the towels were the same. Do not be confused by dirty in that you will not find garbage all around the place, it was very clean in that regard. The rooms are just very well worn and it is time to replace some of the materials. The shower has a glass wall that does not do well enough of a job to keep water from reaching the floor in quantity. It was also odd that there was no tissue paper. Some communications work could be improved on. We arrived for a two night stay and I had picked the hotel because it had a well rated restaurant attached. The first night we went for dinner there. On the second day we went out and had a long day of seeing the sights with the plan to chill there in the restaurant. When we arrived there was a notice that the restaurant was closed for a private function. We could have ordered room service, but the room is not conducive to eating and frankly did not feel clean enough. We should have been told when we checked in and then we could have gotten something before coming back to the hotel.
I drive through Budapest and stay overnight once or twice a year. Previously, it's always been either one of the Hiltons (I trust the brand) and I was happy enough with both. However, I wanted to try something new and, having read excellent reviews of Hotel Castle Garden, decided to give it a try. Well, not just I was not disappointed, but indeed the hotel exceeded my expectations. I found it to be even better than Hiltons, while it cost me less. I paid for a standard room, but was put in a room with a huge deck , which was a free bonus. Overall, it was exceptional value. My wife also beleives the hotel is very elegant. It's a pity we did not get a chance to try their restaurant for dinner, but breakfast there was very good.
The only - minor! - inconvenience that comes to mind is how lighting is set up in the bathroom, which made a little difficult for me to shave. Not that there was not enough light by the mirror, just the light coming from behind my back was even stronger, thus creating shadows.
The rooms were very clean and exceptionally warm. The walls were thick - so you got a good nights sleep - even if the TV was on in the room next to you, you would not hear it. (I know as my father was in the room next to mine and I could not hear the TV - v imp to me as I am a light sleeper)
It might not be a good location for older people who might struggle going up and down the hill to get a tram/tube. If however you are using taxi's this would not be a problem - and taxi's are very cheap and the journey would only be a short one - there are also busses close by.
good location and breakfast
big balkon with beautiful view, very comfty bed, everything was perfect
Very nicely located close to the upper castle area within walking distance. Dinner in hotel restaurant was not as special as
Wall with blakc spots from suitcases or similar could need some paintings in two rooms we saw, strange cleaning detergent smell in two rooms, one room clearly had a strong smoker smell, addtional payment for sauna, for parking and in particular fo a capoccino instead of strange tasting coffee should be included in the price, dinner in hotel restaurant was not as special as announced and one could expect.
the location to "buda"is excellent .the room big and with all facilities even a kettle to cofey or tea .the staff very friendly. the hotel restorant is excellent
the back side facing the city is a leetle beat noisy
Based under the Buda Castle with an easy 2 - 3 minute walk to this fantastic monument.
The hotel service from the staff was generally poor. You always felt as if they were doing things slightly begrudgingly - perhaps a hang over from the Communist past ? On one occasion the room was not made up because the hotel "had a lot of guests departing which was the cleaning staffs main focus" and on arrival, due to a leak which had damaged some rooms we were moved without notice to another hotel for one night. Would recommend this hotel purely for the location.
It is a perfect hotel. Good brekfast. Comfortable room.
The location is great, facilities provide great value for the money, first option when I go back in Budapest, realy.
One of the best hotels ever. The staff is amazing! Great attention to details. they really care about customers and the business reputation. the rooms and facilities are state of the art. Besides they have a wonderful restaurant - the waiters love to serve you (you can see style in everything), delicious food and live music. Very close to city center, you can reach it on foot in 15 min or otherwise there is a metro station in 5 min away.
