The hotel has recently renovated all superior and executive rooms and public spaces. Located in the Royal Castle District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the hotel 'pairs a16th-century look with today's amenities' for a truly special stay.
Naturaly the hotel has various fine dining facilities, plus amazing event spaces, and the type of very helpful service you're looking for in Budapest.
As well as the hotel's F&B options, people invariably wander around the Buda Castle and try out the local restaurants, so here's a quick guide to the top options near the Hilton Budapest
1. Jamie's Italian Budapest
Jamie’s Italian was founded by Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, in 2008. Since then it has grown to more than 60 restaurants worldwide, including this very popular location in the middle of the Buda Caste District.
Taking inspiration from the “Italian table” – where people relax and enjoy each other’s company – the menu is full of antipasti and nibbles, perfect for sharing, as well as bowls of fresh pasta, beautiful fresh salads and great grill dishes.
Featured in the Michelin Red Guide since 2005, and awarded 2 hats by Gault Millau in 2011, this is a refined yet comfortable and relaxed restaurant, located in a 13th century old bakery house for the last three decades.
Founded in 1982, then as the first private café-restaurant in Budapest, many VIPs have visited Pierrot, among them Depeche Mode, Sir Roger Moore, Antonio Banderas, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Eva Mendez and Ryan Gosling.
3. 21 Hungarian Kitchen
Hungarian cuisine as it used to be in the “good old days”, updated to the 21st century. While maintaining the original tastes 'in a concentrated way' to deliver more taste.
It skips the typical local restaurant clichés, both in the cuisine and in the design, and delivers dishes lighter *and healthier) than the old fashioned Hungarian style of cooking.
4. Pest-Buda Bistro / Pest-Buda Terrace
Hungarian food cooked as though it's fresh from a faithful grandma's kitchen, offered up in what's said to be the "coziest restaurant in town", right next to the iconic St Mathias Church.
5. Baltazár Grill
A gastronomic adventure based on sharing and tasting, high quality ingredients are cooked with tasty simplicity on the world's best hand-made charcoal grill, the Josper of Catalunya, Spain.
