Hotel Castle Garden

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice hotel for visiting the city. Staff is very helpful, breakfast was alright even the coffee. The hotel restaurant offers a mix of Hungarian and Italian meals - must try, but make your reservation at the reception. Spend a little more, and book a superior room with balcony.

Hotel is reasonably well situated near Fisherman's Bastion and has parking available (must book). Rooms are comfortable as are the beds. Breakfast had usual range of continental, and eggs and bacon. However, an otherwise pleasant stay of 2 nights was ruined on the last morning by housekeeping entering our room without knocking as we were getting dressed for breakfast, and again when clearing out our room to leave. This was reported to the reception who either didn't understand our issue, or didn't care, and a formal letter of complaint was left for management

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. Upsides: staff is very nice and helpful, they give you a cell phone to use during your stay (this is huge!), hairdryer in bathroom so that you can dry your hair in front of a mirror, highly rated restaurant on site with a good breakfast buffet for $12/10 Euro, nice entrance to hotel, convenient public transportation. Downsides: flat and firm pillows, no outlet in bathroom for razors, on the expensive side of town, most things we wanted to do were on the Pest side of the river. Overall, we would recommend this hotel.

Great and quiet location at the food of Castle Hill about 7-8 minutes walk from major transportation hub of Széll Kálmán tér and Mammut shopping mall. The room was very clean and cosy, the staff friendly and helpful. A standard equipment of my room was a smart phone type of device which I could use free of charge during my stay even for calling most countries around the world. The reception is open 24/7 and I got a welcome drink upon arrival. Soft drinks and coffee are also available in the reception area after 11 AM. All in all a very nice place to stay.

We are Americans and spent 3 nights at Castle Garden Hotel. It was a WONDERFUL experience - Staff was great, loved the "Handy" they gave us so we didn't have to use our own phones, comfortable beds, great breakfast and SUPERB location. I will recommend this hotel to a lot of folks!

We had read good reviews and stayed here mid December. The Hotel was fantastic beforehand, arranging airport transfers, restaurant bookings etc so when we arrived all went smoothly. The even give you a free to use. 'tourist mobile' to use whilst you stay there - pre set up with maps and sights etc with free interent and calls - it was very useful as my own phone was playing up. We had a superior room with a terrace and for the money it was great value. All the staff were very friendly from the cleaning people to reception. Szofia and her colleagues were brilliant with lots of information and will do anything to help you - always with a smile. Breakfast was great and the adjoing restaurant (Italian) was also very good and decent prices. The location is a huge bonus - 5 mins from the metro, 30metres from the bus stop and 100mtrs from the Vienna Gate entrance to the Castle district. Quiet location that meant you slept well. I would recommend to anyone. For four nights it was a bargain. Thank you to everybody at The Castle Garden who made our stay wonderful. Just needs a bar to relax in.

Great location near castle hill and Széll Kálmán square, metro 3 and tram 4 and 6, nice and frendly staff, coffee and tee in rooms, very comfortable, clean, at night it is peace, the garage is payable

Me and my mum recently stayed in this hotel, and to say we were happy is an understatement. The hotel is clean, modernized and welcoming. We arrived about 7pm and managed to get a table in the restaurant. The food was impeccable and fairly priced, I would highly recommend. I must stress though, the restaurant is very popular, so ensure you book a table, especially on the weekend. The room was clean and specious, equipped with a fully booked mini bar and vanity products in the bathroom. Suggestion to the hotel would be to re-stock the mini bar during our stay. The location of the hotel is in the castle district, its a 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop (number 16) which takes you directly into the city center and returns in the same place. Please also be aware you can purchase bus tickets from the hotel reception, we didn't realize this until the last day, and the bus drivers don't seem utterly impressed when you ask them. You can also walk around the ground of the castle, again its about 10 minutes from the hotel. The staff in the hotel could not do enough for us, they were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. Highly recommend this hotel, and for the price it is outstanding.

A very pleasant smaller hotel in a quiet area... but very close to prime sights in Buda and on a very regular bus service to the Pest side (#16). In all respects a well run hotel, clean, friendly, efficient. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in December. The hotel is in a great location to visit the Buda points of interest, specially the Buda castle etc. The restaurant serves good food and drinks. The breakfast is good quality although the choices are not great. Would recommend the hotel to stay.
