“Poor breakfast; Spa not included !!!”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

I was surprised to learn that if want to use spa facility I have to pay extra! This was not I expected. As a package, if it was not included that should be clearly stated and people visiting Budapest spa is one of the most popular attractions when you stay in Boscolo Luxury Residence but cannot use the spa in the hotel you feel like to be treated as second class client. The staffs are very friendly and most helpful. The breakfast I have to say is too poor not at all for a five star standard, no cooked food! For tourists, it is very important to have a good breakfast most don't like to spend too much time for lunch but breakfast in here cannot fill you at all.

We booked 2 rooms in this modern apartment complex for a mid-week stay. The apartments are very spacious and well equipped for anyone that wants to cater for themselves, and we even has a washer/dryer in one of the apartments. Although we didn't want to cater for ourselves, the apartments were so comfortable and such good value, that they proved a perfect base for a short city break. There are plenty of reasonably priced restaurants in the surrounding area to suit all tastes, and you can always use the restaurant in the sister hotel if you want a little luxury. The only downside is that you are slightly out of the main tourist area, but a short tram/bus ride quickly gets you to where all the action is.

Room Tip: If you want access to a washing machine request a room that includes one.

Very pleased with our 4-night stay here. The room was very large with sitting area comprising armchair and convertible sofa/bed, separate king bed section, kitchen and table/chairs, bathroom with bath, bidet, shower, toilet, washbasin and bath. The hotel generally was clean and modern and the staff were friendly, helpful and spoke good English. We paid a bargain price for what we got and have no complaints. Only problem was we had difficulty with the door lock - there is knack to unlocking the door which took two sets of instruction from staff before we mastered it.

We got a fantastic deal on Jetsetter so it didn't make sense to stay anywhere else. The rooms were very clean and the service was ok - no different than any of the service we experienced anywhere else in Budapest. The spa at the hotel was included as part of our stay which I found slightly disappointing. Also, the bathtub/shower didn't have a shower curtain, so every time we took a shower it looked like a tsunami hit the bathroom. I also found the ventillation a little lacking and the room got kind of stuffy at night. But overall, it was a pleasant stay - we especially enjoyed the Cigar Bar in the main hotel.

This is our first trip to Budapest. The service and amenities match this residence's stars that is connected to the Boscolo 5 star hotel. If you want to treat yourself to an unforgettable dinner then you must have one at the New York Cafe Saloon. The personal attention, little unexpected treats, absolutely devine food in a dinning room dripping with baroque architecture will remain a treasured memory.

Shame about the service. If you don't look the part, expect to be treated like a second clas citizen
