The room that I got was rather large, with two single beds and a rollaway, a wardrobe with a large mirror, desk with a chair, and an armchair with an ottoman. The room also had a long dresser that stores a TV as well. There is also a minifridge with a coffeemaker and two nightstands. All the furniture is medium-brown wood with small chess-like inlay. The bathroom has a bathtub, sink, hairdryer, mirror, and toilet. The sink in the bathroom looks like granite. The wallpaper and tile have a moiré pattern. And the best part is the view of the Parliament and Danube from the window.
Parking is free on the street in front of the hotel. Entry through the gate into the castle is validated by the hotel. To get step-by-step directions, I emailed hotel and just followed their directions to the hotel. Surprisingly, the M1 road goes directly into the city, so getting in and out of the hotel is rather simple. In the basement there are reconstructed cloisters of the Dominican monastery that was on this spot from the 13th to 15th centuries. The tower on the left of the hotel is the only original part.
The hotel has a free shuttle from the airport, which you need to reserve a day ahead.

There are a few hotel suites that are all superior in quality if not bargain in price. The nicest featured a bath tub situated with an amazing view out the window. The decoration and furnishing of these rooms were oppulent to say the least.
There are multiple restaurants, bars, a wine cellar, fitness center and conference facilities to accommodate the needs of guests. But besides the unique design of old and new and the hotel's central location there is one quality that is certain to please any of the Hilton's visitors: the amazing views of the Danube below.

Elegantly dressed doorman opens the door and I approach the check-in desk. Rooms are nice, but not really special.
The television has many pay channels. It is easy to accidentally changed to one of the pay channels and there''s no check to verify that you actually want to pay for it. The good news is that there''s only one charge per day for all the channels, the bad news is that many other channels are ones you would not want your young child to see.
The executive lounge is large and overlooks the river. I guess at one point it was quite scenic but right now there''s a lot of construction going on so the view is a tiny one of the river, then you get to see a lot of scaffolding and plywood and hear a lot of sandblasting. The casino has been closed for over a year and the fourth and fifth floors are closed for renovation. Construction is going on in the hallways -- well you get the idea this is not the most restful of environments.
If you plan to stay here check for special rates because it is pricey enough with those - definitely not worth the rack rates.
