Choosing a fairy-tale as a vacation destination…? It should come as little wonder that staying at the Hilton Budapest can be compared to just that. Home to a UNESCO world heritage site, the Buda side of Budapest boasts one of the most picture perfect royal castle districts in all of Europe if not the world.
Benefiting from its close proximity to the Buda castle – a fortified city built on a summit and completed in 1265 – the Hilton offers a panoramic view of both the Danube and the haunting gothic world of the Hungarian parliament looming over the river on the Pest side. Built within the façade of a 16th century Jesuit College that benefits from a 13th century Dominican Churchyard, the property itself is endowed with an ambience capable of catapulting its guests into a lost era. With the stunning Roman Catholic Matthias Church right next door, it is easy to imagine oneself as a visiting monarch who has just been granted the full reign of an entire kingdom.
