Historical Traveler Reviews Adina Apartment Hotel Budapest
What a great find! The apartment was really spacious with separate toilet, bathroom, kitchen, bedroom & living room. I would be happy to live here! Very clean with everything you would need (toaster etc). Staff were very friendly and helped with a couple of enquiries. Not too far by Metro into centre of Pest (took 6 mins approx). Highly recommended.
Superb hotel in Budapest
The Adina offers great value for money. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which gave us so much more space than a hotel room. Full kitchen (even had a washer-dryer) and a good sized bathroom with fantastic shower!
The staff were extremely helpful and efficient - and the pool and fitness suite were a real bonus!
Good location - on a quiet side street but only a short walk to the metro which easily gets you round Budapest! Plenty restaurants and shops within a pleasant walking distance!
Would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to others!
A perfect launch pad for 2 days in Budapest
This is an excellent hotel and really good value, I would highly reccommend it. Everything is spotlessly clean and very modern. We booked a double 'apartment' - a large double room with a kitchenette in a wardrobe, don't be put off, its better than it sounds.
The pool/jacuzzi/sauna/steam room/gym was great, whoever paid for the design and build of this hotel clearly ticked all the 'very posh' boxes when they were with the architect.
The staff were also great - relaxed and professional; and the location is fine, about 15 minute walk into the very centre, 2 mins to the tube, the neighbourhood was very clean and quiet.
We went for a 2 night getaway and booked last minute, so I can't believe our luck at getting such a nice hotel.
The hotel used to be called 'The Sydney' until very recently, it seems to have been taken over by a small chain as there was an advert for a simlilar hotel in another city in the lobby, but this is no bad thing. The website I booked on has out of date photos making it look dowdy, when in reality it is light and airy with a lot of space.
If I go back to Budapest I will definetely stay here again.
Adina apart. hotel
The Adina apartment Hotel (use to be Sydney Hotel)
is just a dream which comes truth. The hotel is actually
a suite hotel. For a very reasonable price (via search
engine on the Internet) we got a beautiful suite includes
bedroom, living room (large sitting area with separate
dinning table), full-quipped kitchen (actually we could
prepare all our meals there, as it has also microwave,
toaster & many other basic equipments; but we prefered
dinning at the excellent restaurants of Budapest). The
suite was very comfortable & very clean & has very unique
design. Lots of space for all. There is even CD player.
We could totally relax.
There are also disadvantages - have a look continuance.
The bathroom includes both & shower & it's so clean & shiny
as it was just bought. The spa is a real complement to the
guests. It has a pretty swimming pool (but only 28 degrees
Celsius), jacuzzi, sauna & gym hall. Just the right things to
begin the day or closing it. Free excellent coffee at the lobby
all day long.
The Adina hotel is walking distance from large food
supermarket (which is open also on Sundays).
We have the feeling of great value for the money we paid.
No reason to pay much more for a central city hotel with
tiny rooms (like the Taverna hotel).
Easily accessible to the subway: within distance of 3 Metro
stations, you are in the City Center (the Budapest public
transportation has an excellent time table - you don't wait
more than few minutes for the next bus/subway/tram)
which makes life very comfortable. The Adina hotel is two
blocks from the Blue line/No. 3 Metro station.
From the Ferihegy airport of Budapest it's just about
40 minutes to the Adina hotel (the cheapest way:
bus no. 200 & then the Bleu line/no. 3 Metro). Don't change
more than couple of Dollars/Euro at the airport OTP Bank,
as the rate there is very bad. The best rate is by the city
center by "Northline" dealers. The cheapest way to travel
in the city & the serounding is by buying a Metro/Bus daily
ticket (we bought for 3 days in advance) at the first Metro
station. It gives you the opportunity to travel as much you
want 24 hours every day.
By the way, the best restaurant with reasonable price, is
"Nancsi Neni" which is about 25 minutes from city center.
The disadvantages of the Adina hotel:
1 The coerce for Internet access/wireless is quite expensive.
(the cheapest is by McDonald).
2 The Blue line/no. 3 Metro does not run after 11:00 P.M.
(walking to/from the center takes about 20 minutes.)
3 The bed mattress should be soon change for a soft one.
Too hard mattress for such luxury hotel.
4 The German language is not the strong one at the reception.
5 The cost of the breakfast is very high, especially as it is only "decent".
6 An iron is missing in the suite !
7 The signs getting & finding the hotel should be improved.
8 There is no complimentary newspaper.
CNN channel TV is not available.
We will return absolutely to this hotel.
All we emphasis is update to June 2006
Large nice rooms with good bath
It's a nice place, but I do have mixed feelings about it. Some rooms are large apartments and some studios, all with full kitchens. I felt the walls were a bit thin, but it's very clean and the beds are very nice with nice sheets. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Breakfast is decent. The gym is minimal. The pool and spa okay. The washer/dryer unit in the room didn't dry my clothes. Whether that's normal or not I don't know. My biggest issue is the location. The metro is only 2-3 blocks away, but it isn't convenient at night and there is a lack of restaurants nearby.
Great Place to stay in Budapest
My family and I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at the Sydney as were extremely pleased with our choice. THe apartment was spacious and clean and the full service was terrific. My husband went early for the buffet breakfast while we slept and he brought us cereal, eggs, meats and bread to enjoy in our kitchenette. There is a market nearby and we stocked up on late night snacks and ice creams.While not in the very center of town, the hotel is easily accessible to the subway lines,which are also easy to navigate. The staff was very hospitable and gracious and made excellent recommendations for us, and secured us tours and cabs as we needed. It is a 'business' hotel, but we found it to be quite enjoyable for recreation - my husband and kids loved the pool after a day of sightseeing. It was also great to be able to do some laundry right in our own apartment. The dryers didn't work so well, so we just hung everything overnight. I recently got an email saying the Sydney Apartments chain has changed its name (I am sorry, cannot remember to what). I have no doubt the accommodation and service will remain as we found it. It was worth the money, and for all that we got, a great value.
Luxury apartment in Budapest
I stayed in a two bedroom apartment at the Sydney Apartment Hotel with three girlfriends - we're quite fussy and we were all impressed with our room. The location is not the best (its a bit incongruous to its surroundings which are a bit run down) but we found it a reasonably central base from which to explore Budapest if you don't mind a bit of walking, and we didn't feel unsafe.
The first room we were offered was quite basic, but we managed to get a free upgrade to a much more modern and better equipped (though smaller) apartment, which is exactly as shown in the trendier shots on the website (go for deluxe - its definitely worth it). The apartment was plenty big enough for the four of us with all the facilities you could need (three TV's, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, & two very nice bathrooms).
We didn't get to enjoy the gardens as it was snowy, but the jacuzzi, sauna and pool were lovely. Reception were also very helpful and spoke very good English.
All in all - highly recommended.
VERY comfortable and spacious for a family or group
While not in a tourist area, the Sydney is two blocks from the Blue Metro (from which we easily connected - but remember it doesn't run late at night) and near the massive and modern WestEnd Shopping Centre. (If you have teens or young adults, they'd love the shopping, bowling, cinema, and games facilities. There are several casinos for adults, and a huge food court.)
Our accomodation WAS an apartment - lots of space, a nice kitchen, a sitting area with a separate dining table, a washer and dryer. It provided plenty of room for the four of us; you could totally relax. (There is comfort in microwave popcorn after a long day of being a tourist.) There were two bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms. It would be great for temporary living arrangements. It was very clean, with some signs of wear. Our apartment had three balconies, although one view of the neighborhood wasn't all that scenic. There is no restaurant, but there are several nearby. We used none of the hotel's other facilities, though the pool looked nice - we were too busy playing tourist.)
My only complaint - the cost of the breakfast was so high that we went elsewhere. On the other hand, nearby was a large, modern, WONDERFUL food market (we bought salami, cheese, fruit, and baked goods). There is also a beautiful Catholic church a few blocks away.
We'd stay here again.
I loved it
My BF and I originally booked 3 nights with the NH Budapest, but NH was overbooked the first night so they put us at the Sydney Apartment Hotel. When we arrived at Sydney, we were stunned with its modern, sleek decor in the lobby and hall way. Some of the furniture were by Phillippe Starck. They gave us a 1-bedroom apartment, with a balcony, full-equiped kitchen, and a washer/dryer machine. It was about 700 sqf. We almost didn't want to leave.
Wish this hotel be all over the world!
My family of 5 parties stayed at this apartment hotel and loved it. Very modern and spacious. Clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to feel at home. Nice and simple decorated bedrooms, very clean bathrooms (like new), TV , Air Condition, a kitchen, balcony, washer and dryer. A garden and a swimming pool. Walking distance from a relatively big food market and a beautiful shopping mall. Walking distance from the subway station. Absolutely Great. I wish they had one of these everywhere in the world.
