Mamaison Residence Izabella Budapest
Travel Blogs from Budapest
... one of the clubs there are apparently people who are paid to walk around in pajamas telling people to basically "shut up." I guess noise bylaws work a little differently in Budapest. On Friday (Valentines Day) I did a little bit of exploring, but I was feeling rather ill so I actually ended up spending the entire day (and unfortunately, night) in the room sleeping. My comrades experienced a Budapest-style pub crawl including Palinka shots and a 4 ...
... didn't think they would fit but when he held them up, they seemed pretty alright. To make everything even better, the jeans turned out to be on sale, only 950 HUF instead of 1800 (a little over $4 instead of $8.20). Winners! Now I just have to search a little harder for some water proof boots and I will be all set.
We were super hungry after shopping and walked quickly back to the hostel. We made some dinner and are now trying to decide if we can fit in a small side ...

The next morning we awoke and walked straight to the famous thermal baths. We arrived around 9:00am and left around 12:00, one must get the maximum value out of such a place. There were 3 outdoor pools, heated to different ...
... and the locals had enough notice of the occupation to hide the valuables. It ais an active Neologue (kind of conservative but not orthodox) synagogue but in winter they choose to host the whole local congregation in a neighbouring smaller synagogue as it is difficult to heat the large synagogue. Being relatively modern and progressive for the late 19th century, the building had no screens to separate the women and had some features to make it appear more ...

This is a popular ski area in winter, but no snow now even on the highest peaks. We did some day hikes here, one fairly easy one up to Popradske Pleso, a mountain lake set deep in a high valley surrounded by towering peaks. It was hot and sunny when we set out, ...

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.
