Don't let that Hilton appellation put you off—this is no cookie-cutter salaryman's bolt-hole. It's one of Buda's best hotels and the oldest of its grands, grafted, amazingly and successfully, onto a medieval church with a 17th-century Jesuit cloister. Perched high up on picturesque Castle Hill, its "plus" rooms have a Danube view to die for from their picture windows (they're expensive though—a good home for all those increasingly useless air miles?). Everything you'd expect is built into the rooms—good work space, CNN, ESPN, HBO, coffeemaker—and, no, they're not gorgeous, but they were recently fluffed.
