... am in the morning. We took a bus to the airport and were on our own to get to Budapest. As I checked in, somehow I got lucky and God blessed me with getting to choose what type of seat I wanted. No one else got asked, so i was very thankful to choose an aisle seat. And on our connecting flight I got a whole row to myself so I spread out among the seats to sleep. So lucky! Even though we had a super early flight, we were blessed because we had literally all day to explore ...
... offer for only £18. With and open grill, any type of meat we could think of and champagnes and wines being on the drinks list we had a very enjoyable 3 hours ensuring we got our money's worth. After staggering out at midnight clutching our over filled stomachs we headed for the #3 pub, and soaked up its interesting and unique atmosphere for a couple of hours. Then at 2am, with the party outside still in full flow we headed to bed. The next day we ...
... off the bus and got onto the new one and we were off. Next stop the Synagogue, this was so different from the opulence of the Catholic Cathedral, it was large without being over the top, it had a very Moorish style about it. The guide was very interesting with the history of the Synagogue and the Jewish religion in Hungry, communism and the Jewish people within Hungry. Overall both places of worship were worthwhile visiting. Both Julie and ...
... stated that the World Press Photo Exhibit was on display. I had wanted to see this when it was in Sydney but had missed the opportunity. I thought I would check it out here and headed towards the museum. I had however forgotten the fact I was in Europe, and for some reasons most museums are closed on Monday, and this one was no exception.
Back at the waterside I came across a memorial, "Shoes on the Danube Promenade". Laura and Helen ...

Anyway we made it up to the top of the hills and were kind of dissappointed. There wasn't a lot here, a couple of playgrounds and I guess some walks but we didn't really know where they went. It was also kind of windy so we were cold with just t-shirts (the locals all had coats on).
We had just missed the train so we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mamaison Residence Izabella Budapest
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.
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.
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.
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.
My partner and I travelled with another couple in May 05 to Budapest, and stayed in a 2 bed apartment at Residence Izabella.
