CLASSY APARTMENT: EXCELLENT APARTMENT!

I was looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Budapest and was finding it hard! Then I thought of airbnb and went to their website and found "Classy Apartment in the centre."

This site is good as you can see what the apartment is like, what the owner looks like, whether it's available and the fees.
I liked the look and booked. With-in 24 hours, I had confirmation.

We did have trouble finding the apartment, as there are two streets with the same name. We did find it though! This street comes out on to Andrassy Way.
We had made a time for when we would be arriving, so Gergely would be there.
Gergely met us and let us into the secure underground parking area. He was a very nice, friendly person, who showed us the lift, and up we went to the apartment on the 1st floor.

What I had booked for the two of us, was a one bedroom apartment. It had a king size bed, plenty of wardrobe space, the bathroom was great, and I had a washing machine, free washing powder included, ironing board & iron. The kitchen was fully equipped, had everything we needed. The lounge area was huge. Windows could be opened, and then we looked out into the street which wasn't very nice - quite safe, but very old buildings. The apartment was air conditioned/ heated, depending on what time of the year you stay here.
Free Wi-Fi was included in the price. Gergely had plenty of brochures for us and a map and answered any questions we had. When he saw we were settled in, he left.
We did pay 5 euros per day for secure underground parking.
We found we could walk to Heroes square, or catch the bus or metro quite easily.

We were very happy with our stay here. It was quiet and secure. We had a security card to get inside the block of apartments.
May 2013 - A very good price!

For check out and check in between 10 pm and 6 am an additional fee of 5 euro.
NO CLEANING FEE or SECURITY DEPOSIT
NON SMOKING APARTMENT
Minimum stay is 2 nights

Wombat's hostel.: Very nice hostel in great location.

Wombat’s hostel is one of accommodation in my list that I was interested .Actually I plan to try something new to stay which is apartment type that look so interesting with acceptable price.I’m not looking for 4 to 5 star hotel because it’s far too expensive for me.And this kind of apartment that fully equipped with dining room,living room, bed room and kitchen all are interesting and beautifully decorated ,make me feel like they are 5 star hotel .There are many of them spread out around town and the price is not that expensive,some even look better than a 4 star hotel ..I think. But after walking around and see some apartments that I plan to stay, all apartment are really beautiful but a little more expensive than our budget …finally I saw a very nice hostel on same street ,the price is 30 euro per night.I asked to see the room ,the guy is so friendly and I got this room 324 with 1 queen bed.The room has high ceiling that is very nice and spotless clean with private bath,shower gel,hot shower,heating in bathroom,air-con, one small table with 2 stools,2 small bed side tables.2 towels provided.It’ll be the best if they provide a little towel on the floor in bathroom instead of a plastic one.It’s a bit slippery when walking on the floor with wet feet.I slipped once ,almost fall but my mate felt and head bang right at the edge of the small table in front of bathroom …luckily the table is light so it also slip away too..nothing so serious but….what a scene! : )
By the way ,there’s no television in the room ,which I don’t need it at all.It’s very good idea to just omit it from the beginning ,save their cost and here we come for sightseeing and the room is just for sleeping,not watching TV .One down side of this hostel is the very thin wall .I can hear all the conversation from people walking along the corridor and the next neighbour ,sounded like they are talking in my room.As being warned before about the noisy youngster who like to hang around late at night but so far no problem .There are many rooms in this hostel with 3 floors ,just tell them you need quiet room.They’ll ask which window side you want to face,I chose the one face outside not the one facing roof of the common area ,but It has glass roof so I don’t think it’ll be any problem for any side.
There's housekeeping clean the room everyday...almost like a hotel service...
Most accommodation in Budapest that I‘ve checked ,no breakfast included and if need breakfast it’s about 7-10euro,but this hostel you pay only 1,000 HUF or about 3 euro.It’s buffet with ham,salami,corn flake,3kinds of bread,2kinds of juice,jam,butter,cheese,fruit salad,home made yogurt,fresh fruit(apple,banana,orange)tea and coffee…all you can eat.Even it’s the same menu everyday but that’s fine for me.There’s wending machine in common area to buy some soft drink too.
The location is the best thing about this hostel..It’s right in the center.Kiraly is the only area that I plan to stay.When walk from Deak Fenrec Ter station ,there’s a mini mart at the corner ,walk along Kiraly about 250 meter when you see a small coffe shop “mozaik” you ‘re about to arrive.Hostel building is in pink colour, in front of the gate are 2 pink flags say it’s name “wombat’s”
Overall ,I ‘ll say I like this hostel and can say .. it’s one of the best hostel ever experienced.You can pay in HUF and credit card, but they don't accept euro.
When checking out ,they charged me only 28 euro per night....even better !!

Hotel Zenit Budapest Palace: Modern service in a renovated "palace."

Hotel Zenit Budapest Palace is a modern re-purposing of an old Budapest building. The rooms, decor and service are all excellent at this new hotel right behind the ugly Budapest Marriott. There are six rooms on the atrium per floor and these are the rooms you want as they are quiet and let in more daylight. The glass-covered atrium serves as the lobby. A full breakfast was included in the room rate. It is served in the restaurant attached to the hotel. WiFi was good and free throughout the hotel. My room was enormous with tall ceilings and double-glazed windows. Zenit is a Spanish hotel chain. My only criticisms have to do with the quality of some of the furniture and fittings. The floors were obviously a printed veneer as each plank was identical. And much of the furniture was metal, which seemed odd. The bed was, however, very comfortable.

The modern design inside a classic building. The excellent service. The full breakfast.

La Prima fashion hotel: Pure luxury!

What can I say?If you like luxury.This could be for you!
The hotel is just of Vaci. It's got a small entrance to the hotel.I nearly missed it when I got out the taxi.The room I had was of a good size and a high standard of decoration and cleanliness.The mattress on the bed was quite firm(not cheap).I've stayed at other 4 star in Budapest with cheap mattresses. I've ended up half crippled after a couple of days.The television in the room is in a large mirror.Also,the bathroom has a walk in shower of a good size and very clean

The breakfast room is situated in a room under hotel.The range of food was of a good standard.Scrambled egg,sausages,fresh fruit and fruit salads.Also,a range of different breads.They do have a range of juices and tea/coffees.
The bar in the hotel is in a strange place.It's at the end of the reception.So,if you have a drink,Your either going to stand at the reception or sit in the reception area.That wasn't a problem because there are a lot place to eat/drink in the area. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Very central to most of the sights

Wombats Hostel: Super Clean & Central Hostel

Now as a single traveller a hostel can sometimes be a noisy, hot and slightly daunting experience, but this was not the case with this place. From the minute i walked through the door, all the staff were very helpful. i stayed in the 8 bed dorm room, which was the cheapest option available to me, and the rooms are laid out very nicely. The room i had was in the shape of an L, so felt like two rooms of 4 beds with an onsuite bathroom. Each person was assigned a locker, which operated only with the key you were issued. The locker was big enough for me to store my suitcase in and also had some hangers for those who wanted crease free clothing. This at no extra charge. Bedding was very clean and also at no extra cost.

The bathroom was fairly new looking and very clean mostly, however the shower holder was broken so you had to hold the shower head when showering. This was a only a minor nuisance though.

Each bed, had its own little lamp and power outlet so you could charge your phone or camera over night without worrying that your possessions were so far away.

The hostel itself is only around 5-10 minutes walk from Saint Stephens Church and 5 minutes walk from the shopping district. A metro station which links all three metro lines is also only within a few minutes walk. Really useful when going to and from the airport.

Downstairs in the lobby was also a bar. Lobby has lots of open spaces and on arrival you get a drinks voucher to use in the bar. Most people tend to be very friendly to have a chat to. Wifi is also available FOC here. The Wifi code can be obtained from Reception.

Prater Residence: Home away from home

Prater Residence is a stone away from a mall, walking distance to the metro, in a quiet area, has a security guard in the evening, reception is managed 24 hours, apartments are huge and are kept clean everyday, and even if kitchens are equipped, they can prepare breakfast for you. And the Museum of Applied Arts is walking distance, which is a big plus for me. Wifi is available 24 hours a day for free.

The apartment where I stayed has a kitchen/dining room, living room, a balcony, a bedroom, a foyer leading to the bathroom. I found it spacious for one person.

What I liked most about Prater Residence is that I was treated as a person and not just as a number which is becoming a trend in many hotels. I like personalized service at an affordable cost. When Eva, the manager, learned that I'm lactose-intolerant, she saw to it that I got the right milk. The apartment was kept clean everyday and my bedsheet has been changed during my 4-night stay.

With the metro, I found it very easy to go to the baths, to the city centre, to the train station.

Leonardo Hotel, Budapest: Highly Recommended!

We spent 2 nights at this hotel while in Budapest, with a group of 42 other friends and returned some days later for another night. We were told by the tour agency that it was a Ramada hotel, but when we arrived I found out that it has joined the Leonardo group of Hotels a couple of weeks ago, so I guess my comments might be the first as a Leonardo Hotel from now on.

Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink. (A small glass of orange juice.)

We had our room upgraded the first two nights and we were given a nice suite on the 6th floor. (# 602) It was very comfortable and cozy. One con here though was our bed which was extremely soft. So soft, that I had to check if it was a water bed. The slightest move of the hand can wake up the person sleeping next to you.
I have to admit that some people in our group had however extremely small rooms the first two nights, and I thought they were exaggerating. They were talking about rooms like dungeons and I asked to see one. They were right, the rooms were extremely small, but they were given better rooms the last night when we returned from Prague. It seems that the really cheaper rooms are the smallest. Four nights later when we returned here, we were given room # 443. This new room did not have of course the dimensions of the suite we previously had, neither was it the smallest room. It was a normal size room, nice and comfortable for that one night. Actually the whole group had the same size of room this time. I believe the size depends on what you pay.
The towels in the bathroom were bright white, as well as the cover bedspread. Air conditioning and the mini bar in our room were working fine. No bad comments here. I asked my friends for any bad comments and nobody had to say anything negative.

Breakfast was more than adequate with omelets, sausages with nice mustard, yoghurt, fruit salad, variety of cakes, cheese and ham and oatmeal porridge. There was an incident during dinner the second night, but after I talked with Mr. Mustafa Osman the Restaurant Manager who was very polite, he did his very best to please us all. So, here I suggest that if you are not satisfied with anything, the thing you should do is to kindly talk about the problem with the person in charge and not just ignore it. In this way the hotel people will be informed and if you really talk and convince them, believe me, they will do whatever they can to make things up for you. Only ask politely. If we guests don’t comment on the cons we find with the right people, then the hotel cannot be improved, and I believe this is what the hotel people are after here.

We were on H/B basis, so we had our dinners here. One negative here and comment from all 42 people of our group was the high cost of wine and beer. The small glass of beer costs 4 euro, and a bottle of wine is approximately 15 euro. This was the impression of all 42 people in the group.

There is internet access for free on the ground floor but I could not connect my laptop while there even if I was given a code. Only once I had access from my suite but just once. There is only one computer by the entrance door but you cannot use it for long unless there is nobody else who wishes to use it. Otherwise you have to be brief, just check e mails. I usually worked early in the morning or late at night when there was nobody else waiting.

The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood not far from the city centre. There are shops in the round area, -a small square with one or two coffee shops and a pub just opposite the hotel.
I highly recommend this hotel, and I would gladly return here if I ever visit Prague again.

Claudia rooms and apartments: Accomodation in the Jewish quarter



I had an accomodation in two-bed room, but was rated only for one bed. The room was clean, and you also can use your notebook with WI-FI connection in the room or watch TV.
The bathroom had a shower, toilet and bidet.

Although you have to pay cash only, you can choose if to pay in Euros or Hungarian forint (HUF).
