St. George Residence
Ranked #98 of 336 Hotels in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2012

The St George Rezidence Hotel has gorgeous suites filled with some glorious antiques, large living rooms, a full kitchen, great bath rooms and nice bedroom. The a/c and all the lighting are perfect.
That said, the designers must be giants. The mirrors, hooks etc are all very high. No full length mirror so.....
The staff could not be nicer or more helpful. Breakfast is fine. There is a lovely courtyard with tables for dinner and drinks or just sitting.

Room Tip: they all appear to be fine

This hotel is located in our favorite part of Budapest, the Castle District. It's lovely and spacious, with a nice courtyard for an afternoon drink. Very nice. And Pest Buda, a wine bar right across the street has wonderful food too.

We spent four days in Budapest in May. We stayed in the Bronze room. Very nice and clean with a modern bathroom. The room was a suite with a small kitchen and a very formal and uncomfortable dinning room table. Everything was very nice, only suggestion would be a shower curtain for the bathtub and possibly a couch to sit on in the ajoining room. It was not very comfortable sitting on the dinning room chairs.
Only complaint was the staff which was not very friendly or helpful. We rented a car the day we left and had trouble getting it in and out of the Castle district. Not much help from staff.

Room Tip: Good restaurant accross the street, Pest Buda

Stayed end of May, 2012.
Located in the Castle district, on the Buda side, this hotel characterizes itself as an: All Suite Hotel Deluxe.
We purchased, from an on-line company, a package that included airport transportation, a 3 night stay in a Gold Suite, breakfast, and a set 3 course dinner for 2, on a night of our choice.
This property has a long history. It has been, among other things, an Art School, a Law Court, government offices, etc. However, that is deceptive. The structure may be old, however, the interior has clearly been reconstructed to modern standards. The property is well maintained and spotless. Although the ambiance is clearly directed at old world elegance, there is nothing old or worn out about this hotel.
Unfortunately, in its reconstruction, they did not install an elevator. Therefore, be aware that unless you request a ground floor suite, you will be climbing stairs. There are suites on 3 floors. Fortunately, they have a porter to help with your luggage.
We requested a king bed and were advised that the only king bedded Gold Suites were on the second floor. We were pleasantly surprised that the reference to the second floor was the description we, as Americans, would use, rather than the European - ground, first, second. So, our suite was not on the top floor.
The next pleasant surprise was our suite! It was massive! I estimate the ceiling height to be at least 14 feet. On one end was the bedroom, with king bed, side tables, flat screen TV and adjoining marble bathroom.
In the middle was a great room/dining area with a dining table that would seat six; and a kitchen area with refrigerator, microwave, sink, dishwasher, and cabinets with all the necessary plates, utensils, glasses, etc.. There is an armoire, and a side table.
At the far end, was the living room area with a desk and chair, two overstuffed leather chairs, a leather love seat, flat screen TV and a large cupboard containing an in-room safe, and storage for bathrobes, slippers and extra blankets. There is also a second, full bathroom!
The suite is tastefully decorated with what appears to be a combination of antique and antique reproduction furniture and furnishings. The parquet style flooring appears to be new. All plumbing and electrical are completely modern, and there is complimentary WiFi. In essence, this is a new, modern hotel inside an old structure; giving you the best of both.
Our package included breakfast. Depending on the weather, you can have your breakfast outside in the lovely courtyard. The breakfast included hot items, such as scrambled eggs, vegetables, bacon, and sausages. There were also cold meats and cheeses, yogurt, breads, juices, teas, coffee, etc.
There are some things that could be minor issues for some people, however. There are no views. The lack of an elevator may be a problem for some people. The bathrooms, like many European hotels, do not have a shower. They have large modern tubs, complete with headrests and hand holds, but only a hand held wand. The mattress on our king bed was extra, extra firm.
The hotel staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. There was an issue regarding the online travel vendor and whether taxes were included in the purchase price. The issue was resolved amiably and satisfactorily.
I would not hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: There are various types of suites. Review the choices before booking.

Having been in a very similar type of hotel in Prague last year we choose another "apartment" style hotel. The suites are very spacious. We had a gold suite (room 8) which was on the first floor on a corner and had separate lounge, bedroom, bathroom and entrance hall/kitchen area. We didn't use the kithcen facility at all apart from making a cup of tea but in the past when we had younger kids the whole suite and kitchen would have been great for flexibility. I couldn't fault the room in any way. Location is excellent for Buda and while we were quite happy to walk over to Pest there seemed to be a regular bus service. There was a good choice of local restaurants with good quality in each of the 3 we sampled. The hotel breakfast was poor in terms of choice and certainly not 5 stars compared with any other 5 star hotel I've been in but I wasn't hungry afterwards so it served its purpose. Surprisingly there wasn't a publicly available business centre of any sort. When I asked to print boarding passes for the return journey I was asked to email the passes to the reception do they could print them! I was able to do this using I pad and hotel wifi but 5 star service would have been to let me sit at the reception computer. I would very strongly recommend the hotel for copies or families. It is excellent value and the rooms were superb. While some aspects may not be genuinely 5 star the price was very favourable and I would stay here again if returning to Budapest.

We booked a week's stay at St George's Residence late one Friday evening, after a bottle of red, based on Trip Adviser's "most romantic" ranking. Sometimes the best decisions are made instinctively and this was one of them. Although we booked a Bronze apartment I think we got an upgrade to the elegant suite at the front corner of the first floor. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were delighted with this hotel. The four rooms (kitchen/diner, bathroom, compact bedroom and huge salon) were superb, always immaculate every time we returned from a hard day's sightseeing. We only had one dinner in the hotel restaurant, which was very good, however, as we had the place to ourselves we went to nearby restaurants every other evening. The location, in the heart of the Castle District, was superb and our moonlight walks to Fisherman's Bastion (about 800 metres walk), to look down over the Danube and Pest's lights, were magical. We found the local restaurants to be expensive as we were just two relatively poor Brits in an area chock full of Americans staying at The Hilton but we had the smug feeling of knowing we were in an hotel with real character and history, especially every time they crept into 'our' foyer and said "Wow!". The staff were gracious, attentive and the young chap on the front desk, whose name I really should have noted, was brilliant. The only suggestions for improvement I could make would be to upgrade the pillows and towels (as other reviewers have said) but these are minor quibbles about an otherwise splendid place.
Away from the hotel, highlights of our trip that I would recommend were a classical concert at the magnificent Millenium Cultural Centre's Bela Bartok Hall (superb value and easily reached by tram or taxi), the Fine Arts Museum beside Heroes' Square and a trip to the tourist-centred village of Szetendre (easy train ride from Batthyany Ter). It was very noticeable that every tram, metro, train and bus ran precisely on time (read this and weep Britain). The airport shuttle bus (pre-booked over the internet for about £13 each way) was also excellent. Finally, our review would be complete without giving an award to the pastry chefs of this fine old city; it's worth going just for the cakes! R & D, Wiltshire.

This is an extraordinary hotel, a true 5-star experience. Rooms are not rooms but full apartments furnished with reproduction antiques. The building dates back to the 14 century and has been renovated and equipped to a very high standard. Grand rooms and public areas. Located on the Buda hill, the best location in Budapest near the castle and opposite the modern Hilton hotel. Also highly recommend the Pest Buda restaurant across the road. We were a group of 20 and got a very good price.

Room Tip: they are all good
