The hotel was built on the reconstructed ruins of a Dominican churchyard and monestary, originally constructed in the 13th Century, creating a perfect harmony between the architectural styles of the past and present. It is unique in that two notable historical monuments are incorporated on its grounds.
The northern wing was built on top of the remains of the Dominican monestary named for St. Nicholas, dating from the Middle Ages, while the southern wing is decorated by the facade of a previous Jesuit’s College, built at the end of the 1770s. The former tower and ruins of the church rise up in the middle of these two.
In addition to this unique architectural combination, the hotel’s rooms provide a panorama worthy of a master painting with the extraordinary attraction of one of the capital city’s most well-known monuments, Fisherman’s Bastion.
Rooms at the Hilton Budapest also offer a view of outstanding architecture, which is very beautiful from an art history perspective, overlooking the River Danube as well as the Hungarian Parliament, Margaret Island, and the lovely buildings on both the Buda and Pest sides of the city.
Tripadvisor.com is an excellent marketing communication medium, as the site’s visitors (50 million per month), in addition to sharing their opinions, recommend attractive tourist destinations to each other, often illustrated with photographs.
