I booked the Royal Residence Apartments for a short break to Budapest with my two sons, aged 22 and 26. I sent a request to the hotel before arriving for two beds in the main bedroom and one bed in the second bedroom. No response from hotel (received e-mail after I had checked in). When I arrived at the hotel we were escorted to the apartment by the Duty Manager and it was quite a walk to the apartments through the conference area. They had put two beds in the single room (which was of a poor standard). The second bed that they had put in was a fold up bed not big enough for a 22 year old and the main bed in the single room was a pull down bed. The room was sparsely fitted out with furniture and cold! The hotel did nothing about this. In the end we moved the second bed into the living room. There was also no wi-fi in the apartment. My elder son called three times but nothing happened. Apart from the second bedroom in the apartment and the location of the apartments the hotel was adequate. It was quite strange having to walk through conferences and functions to have to get to the apartments and the first night we were told we were not allowed to walk through the hotel but to use an entrance in a side street. Would, in hindsight, have preferred to stay in the hotel.
