... after lunch and I bought the latest edition of the Gundel cookbook in which the recipes are supposed to have been updated and modified for modern, less fatty, tastes. We continued through the park to the Szecsenyi Baths – the hottest of Budapest’s natural hot spring baths – situated in a complex of bright yellow 19th century mock Baroque buildings. The baths were full of people sunbaking, swimming, bathing, lounging, and ...
... my dreams. I know that I am moving in the right direction and taking the steps needed to manifest my heart’s calling in community and relationship. I’m so grateful that I can even talk to my family about it given I can feel very isolated in my interests if I allow those beliefs to creep in. The reality is that I have many people who are supporting me and believe in me and appreciate the value of my calling even if I am not absolutely clear about how it ...

Changing between the outside pool to various heated baths inside and sauna's. There are even permanent chess boards in the pool! Afterwards we all ...

Apparently it was low season, but taking a look at the city it sure didnt seem that way. There were tourist everywhere. The old city was beautiful and considered one of the finer ones in the world. I later found out that this is where they film the tv show Game of Thrones. After settling in we went out to see the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mamaison Residence Izabella Budapest
Wie ein zweites Zuhause!
Ich schreibe diese Kritik in meinem Appartement im Residence Izabella in Budapest. Ich war hier schon in anderen Hotels (bin oft geschäftlich in der Stadt) und dieses hier ist mein Lieblingshotel. Tolle Ausstattung, wunderschön europäische Einrichtung, sauber, klimatisiert (es ist heute sehr heiß in Budapest) und nicht weit von der Andrassy Straße und verschiedenen Restaurants, Cafes, Geschäften und kulturellen Einrichtungen entfernt. Man kann sich hier zwar auch selbst etwas kochen, aber der Zimmerservice hier ist super. Man kann sich etwas aus den Restaurants der Gegend bestellen und das Essen wird einem direkt aufs Zimmer gebracht! Das Personal sprich gut Englisch und war von Anfang an sehr hilfsbereit. Bei meiner nächsten Reise nach Budapest werde ich mich wieder um ein Zimmer in diesem Hotel bemühen.
We had a self-catering apartment for 4 people - 2 double bedrooms (each with lovely ensuite bathroom) + living room + kitchenette in the Ma Maison building. The decor is modern and looks like money has been spent on it. The kitchenette is small, but well equipped. The reception staff are very efficient, polite and speak excellent English. It is fairly expensive, but then you are getting what you pay for. You can pay by card, and they will make you sign for a breakages deposit. While we were there, electrical fuses kept tripping, which were fixed promptly.
There is a small, pretty courtyard garden where you can sit and have a coffee
We booked it with [--]. They offered lower prices than the hotel itself. I just searched for the hotel with a search engine.
The location is fantastic; just off Andrassy, the main Pest street. Walk up to Heroes' Sq. for a sightseeing trip all the way to the impressive monuments from the 1956 uprising. And don't forget to visit the baths for relaxation in an Art Nouveau opulence.
I would stay here again for the location and facilities in the apartment.
Great home away from home!
I'm writing this review from my apartment at Residence Izabella in Budapest. I've stayed in various hotels here (I travel here on business) and this is a favorite. Great amenities, beautiful european decor, clean, air conditioned (it's hot in Budapest today) and just off of Andrassy near all kinds of restaurants, cafes, shops and cultural sites. Although you have cooking facilties, it's great that you are able to order dinner via their room service menu which contains entrees from local restaurants that get delivered right to you in your apartment! The staff speaks good English and were extremely helpful, right from the moment I walked in the door. I'll definitely look to stay here again during my next trip to Budapest.
5 out of 5!
I have spend 4 days in Izabella at the beginning of this month and I can only recommend it to anyone. I decided to stay there with my girlfriend on our way from Berlin to Romania. I think that Izabella is a great treasure and far more individual than big hotel. We did enjoy the stay from check in to check out, and I can only say the positive things about the extremely friendly and professional receptionist. My vote is 5 out of 5!
Nice experience-room number 20
I visited Budapest for business reasons last week. I have stayed in residence Izabella located in the city centre just in walking distance to the business part of the city. I am travelling a lot and I was good surprised with spacious apartment with own kitchen and living area. Room number 20 located in second floor was really clean and large. I would recommend this property for other business travelers, because it fulfilled my needs.
Me and my family (we have two kids aged 3 and 5) stayed at this hotel in August 2005 and I can tell you that we were very pleased.
First of all, the apartment was very large (approx 45 sqm) and was both stylish and in excellent condition. It really feels like you have been given a suite for the price of an ordinary room.
Secondly, the staff was very helpful. They were always eager to help us with questions about Budapest's attractions.
There are also a number of small points that makes this hotel stand out from the rest, like being equipped with a DVD player (which is a good thing to have when you bring children on your trip), and that the hotel has wireless internet for free. A safety box was also installed in the room which could be used at no cost.
When we visit Budapest the next time, this will once again be our choice of hotel.
We stayed at Izabella for five nights at the end of May. After catching the airport minibus we were dropped off at the front door and greeted by wonderful staff who took us straight to our apartment.
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the top floor. The apartment had wooden floors, stylish kitchen, lounge, large bedroom, bathroom and seperate toilet.
There is also a DVD player and CD player. The apartment was quite and spottlessly clean. The apartments are cleaned once a week but there is a laundry room which is available for all guests to use free of charge. There are some lovely restaurants close by and about a ten min walk to Heroes Square which is fantastic at night and very close to the Oktagen which has bars and restaurants. Breakfast is available for a small charge but there is a shop opposite so we had breakfast in our apartment which meant we could have a lie in before vistiting the attractions. I would recomend visitors to visit the Szechenyi Baths which are located nearby behind Heroes Square and include hot thermal spas.
I would recomend Izabella to anyone who wants an alternative to faceless hotels and who want a home from home environment.
Very large and superbly equipped aparments.
I've just returned from the residence Izabella and would definitely recommend this apartment style hotel to anyone looking for large quality accommodation in Budapest. Its located on a side street just off Andrassy Avenue and is a 20 minute walk or so to get to central Pest (turn right). We payed £112 per night through Expedia for a superior apartment and I can say with all honesty and no exaggeration that it was huge!! Our apartment was some 66 square meters and had a huge lounge and open plan kitchen, separate bedroom and bathroom. We also had use of a dvd player and stereo system. I found this great value for money when you'd have to pay in excess of £190.00 per night for a room of similar quality and size at other centrally located Budapest hotels such as Le Meridien. Its an extra 8 Euros for breakfast but then with a great little kithen we were more than happy to make our own. My only criticisms are that the bathroom shower rail was precariously balanced without any fixtures and had a habit of crashing down. I would also definitely recommend you bring some slippers as my feet and toes did hurt quite a bit walking on the straw like fibres lining the bedroom floor. One final point if you do stay in this hotel is that you simply must visit the world renowned Gundel restaurant a 15-20 minute walk away near the Budapest zoo. Its a bit on the pricey side but well worth it if you want that perfect romantic evening. All in all if you want value for money and a much larger then average quality hotel room then book this lesser known hotel and you won't be disappointed.
Great value for money
My partner and I travelled with another couple in May 05 to Budapest, and stayed in a 2 bed apartment at Residence Izabella.
The place was excellent value for money - the apt was really spacious, the bedrooms and en-suite bathroom at least as big as a 4* hotel. The best thing was the fully equipped kitchen / living area, meaning we could all have a coffee and toast for breakfast in the comfort of our own apt - not having to get up early for a hotel breakfast was very welcome! We also stocked the fridge with some local beers (from the corner shop straight opposite the hotel - they also do fresh bread and milk) to enjoy while we wound down from sightseeing and got ready to go out.
It is well located, just off Andrassy St close to the Vorosmarty tube stop on the yellow line, short walk from Liszt Ferenc Ter - a square where there are loads of bars and restaurants.
We got a good price on venere, which also has good pictures and a good description of the rooms. Try also mamaisonresidences for floor plans etc of the apartments.
I would thoroughly recommend this place, it was great to have a living area separate from the bedrooms - and of course being able to lie in!
If you go to Budapest stay here!
Me, the bloke and two of my friends stayed at Hotel Izabella over New Year and we had a great time.
This newish hotel is conveniently located off Andrassy Street half way between Hero's Square and the main drag by the river.
The reception staff are extremely friendly, efficient and helpful and the rooms we stayed in were stylishly decorated and immaculately clean.
Each room has its own kitchnette/lounge area with all mod cons including a TV, CD and DVD player so it is great if you want to invite your mates back for a few glasses of the local wine after a night crawling the bars in Liszt Ferenc Street (we reccomend Birdland and Incognito).
Although the hotel does not have its own restaurant, the hotel is really close to a wide variety of places to eat and it does offer snacks and meals on 24 hour room service.
In addition to the whole handbook of services the hotel offers, if guests are feeling sporty they can visit the hotel's gym in the basement.
We would go back there every time in Budapest. The hotel was miles nicer than the dodgy looking establishment two of our other friends had the misfortune to find themselves booked into near Margaret Island (miles away from the action).
