Millennium Court - Marriott Executive Apartments
Travel Blogs from Budapest
This morning we said farewell to the beautiful AmaDolce and checked in to our Budapest hotel. We're staying in an apartment-style hotel. Our room actually has three rooms- a common living area with a sitting room and a kitchenette, and two bedrooms that each have their own full bathroom. The room is spacious and elegant; we are thrilled with it. It …
We are all definitely running out of energy but today we tried to make the best of our last day. We started the morning at the Dohany St. Synagogue in Budapest's Jewish district (for those of you who know tonight is Shavuot, we had to come in the morning because the synagogue closes early today). This is the second largest synagogue in the world …

We were free for the afternoon and it was time to get some of our clothing cleaned. I knew of a chain of laundries called 5āsec from our trip to Spain so I corresponded with them by email to find ...
... cooled slightly for our enjoyment!! Shona and I went in, Pete decided to give this one a miss. It was a bit complicated to navigate and buy the ticket we wanted! But after about 20 mins we were in and headed to the pool! It was delightful. Nice and warm! In one of the corners there were chess tables...surrounded by wee old men having a tournament and catching some sun rays! As we were considering getting out, the rain came on! So that confirmed ...
... I had to get up early this morning, as I was heading out on a tour to 'Hitlers Eagles Nest' for the morning, as Nonni had highly recommended to me. Cam wasn't making the voyage, instead doing our washing (good friend he is).
Heading out to the site, the guide didn't sound too enthusiastic about how much we would actually see. And his pessimism was warranted, was we could see absolutely buckley's up there. When you complain the fog, low lying clouds and rain, the conditions were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Court - Marriott Executive Apartments Budapest
5 stars accomodation with no fuss!
A very discreet 5 stars accomodation in the heart of the city! Close to everything including Vaci utca shopping, transportation means and the Danube!
Reception is small but nicely decorated. Rooms are excellent with nice beds, tv, desk, small couch and a fully equiped kitchen so one can cook his own food or invite someone for lunch or dinner. Bathroom has the standard Marriott amenities (Neutrogena).
Breakfast is standard but very tasty and efficient. A small gym is also available.
Staff is very helpful and polite!
I loved it and would certainly go back there!
What a Great Hotel & Great Deal
This is the best deal of our whole Eastern European trip! And it was only 85 Euro a nite (plus taxes).
We got upgraded slightly but saw the smaller suite and they were both terrific. We stayed for 5 nights and the location was unbeatable, 1/2 block from the Vaci (excuse spelling) and 1 block from grocery/wine store, 2 blocks from trams and various subway lines.
Staff was helpful and friendly, free continental breakfast was delicious (usual cheeses, buns, yogurts, juice, coffee etc.).
This is HIGHLY recommended for quality, price, location and service, tho I think you need to stay on the weekend to get the "racy" rate. It is actually classed as an executive apartment rather than a hotel.
Don't recommend the restaurants on either side the 100... somethng was ok but the one to the left was very, very mediocre.
My work friends and me have just got back from a long weekend at the Marriott Appartments and were absolutely delighted with our appartments.Big roomy with a kitchen area inclusive of dishwasher and microwave.You wouldnt be able to cook a three course meal, but it was ideal for snacks and drinks.Everything was clean and fresh.The best was the small gym and sauna with plunge pool which was great after an afternoon sight seeing. Just cant speak highly enough of the place and would return again tomorrow!
We stayed at the Marriots apartments in early September 2005 and were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Room was very large with a full equipped kitchen and good sized bathroom. Main room had bed, and two couches (could be used as beds). Location very convenient in center of town. Excellent value for 85 Euro!
Great Hotel / Apartment
As a frequent business traveller I wish I could have stayed in a place like this more often
Great hotel, although to be honest put our own at home apartment to shame with the facilities.
Great room with fully fitted kitchen, lounge and deep bath. Satelitte tv, small but effective gym.. need I go on!
We really enjoyed the continental breakfast in the lounge in the mornings.
Great location surrounded by restaurants in Pest.
Check out the restaurant next door for nice goulash!
We got this place for a fabulous price and are heading back there later in the year
Great value and Location
We stayed in a two bedroom apartment that was huge. It has 2 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a dining corner. The apartment was very clean and the furnishings were in great condition. The location is right off Vaci Utca - budapest main pedestrian shopping street and a street away from the Danube river. We stayed during the weekend, and rates were very low (mostly a business clientele). Could not be better.
Great Location, Nice 2 Bedroom Apartment
This was a great find. We happened upon it while trying to find a parking place in Budapest near the river. The location is excellent, within a block and a half of the river. The 2 bedroom apartment has 2 good size bedrooms separated by a living area and a small kitchen. It was well worth the money. I was not too happy with all of the add-on charges though (parking and heavy taxes.) I was accustomed to taxes being included in the quoted price in other parts of Europe. Oh well, live and learn. I have already reserved an apartment there for my next trip in June 2005. I don't plan on spending much time in the hotel, so the fact that the hotel does not have all of the shops like the big Marriott hotel (2 blocks away) does not bother me. The rooms are nice and the breakfast is good. That's what counts. I had access to all of the amenities in the big Marriott down the street if I cared to walk down there.
Excellent value for groups or families
Just returned from 2 nights here with 3 friends. The two-bedroom apartments are fantastic - one large room with a double bed, one large room with two single beds and a sofa bed. Two TV's, a kitchen, two bathrooms / baths, more than enough storage space. Furnishings are on a par with a high-end 3 star / bottom-end 4 star hotel.
The location is very good. You are 30 seconds walk from the Danube and 30 seconds from the main pedestrianised shopping street. Castle Hill, the Gellert Baths etc are walkable. The main bar area (around Oktogon metro) requires a metro trip or a cheap taxi ride.
The buffet breakfast is included in the price and is good quality - lots of cereals, pastries, yoghurts, juice, coffee. For Euro 135 + tax per night for four people (and you could get six in the room if there were two couples), it was great value.
If you are looking for a very cool and cheap bar, try Negro in the square in front of the bassilica. Champagne cocktails for Euro 3 each! Opposite is a classy and very cheap restaurant called Leroy. Club Verne (a submarine shaped and themed bar / disco with karaoke!) is also a good laugh and is about 10 minutes walk from the hotel.
Amazing Value in Budapest
My wife and I were planning a trip to Budapest for a weekend and were perplexed at the prices for many of the hotels . . . then we found the Millennium Court on Expedia for just 90 euros per night - about a third of what the Meridien was asking.
The Millenium Court is a simple hotel - like a suite at the Hampton Inn or the Courtyard. Still, the quality of the fixtures was nothing to complain about. The rooms were clean, silent (we faced the "light shaft," so no view), the bed was decent, and the shower, free breakfast and everything else was great. And, lemme tell you - the location of this hotel is excellent, very close to the Meridien, Marriott, or InterContinental - on the more lively Pest side of town.
The staff were friendly - but this is a low service hotel, so no gift shop, slippers, etc. (though you can walk across the street to the Marriott if you need anything).
We ate an excellent dinner at Red & White (great list of Hungarian wines) near Opera - don't miss it! We had a great stay in Budapest, and the Millenium Court played a role in making our weekend stress-free and fun.
We just returned from a trip to Budapest, in February '04, with our 3 children and we were so pleased with our stay at this hotel. You know if you have travelled to Europe with your kids, it gets very expensive staying in 2 rooms. This hotel is a long term apartment hotel for business people, but we felt right at home there. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, brand new apartment with a kitchenette, for 135 Euros a night - including breakfast!!!! That was the weekend rate. The regular rate is 175 Euros for a weekday, still a bargain. The one bedroom apartment is cheaper. The continental breakfast was just that - no hot food, but fine. The hotel didn't have a full staff, but the Marriott employee that was working at the desk was always very helpful and friendly. This hotel was such a find! Even if you don't visit Budapest with 3 kids in tow it's a great hotel. Perfect location, a block from the Danube right near the Erzebet bridge. It's a 2 minute walk from the other Marriott. Fabulous find! There is a similiar hotel in Prague, I wish that we had stayed there instead of the Intercontinental. Ahh - next time!
