We have booked 4 days in boscolo luxury residence via voyageprive.com. The residence is connected to the hotel (where the spa facilities are located) but it tooks a bit to understand (same for the fitness). there were no funny surprise, but the advertising on the internet site has created an expectation which was disappointed. The bedroom is "cold" (but the heating is working), you have to cross several corridors before to get it (as well as the spa and the fitness). Breakfast is fantastic. People for the hotel are nice (but some better than others). All in all, disapponted but dut to the above expectations created by the internet site.

Room Tip: Better to be near the hotel (or to the elevator of the residence or of the hotel)

We have booked a studio in the Boscolo Luxury Residence with a discount thanks to the website verychic.com.

We are satisfied of the studio, the staff and the residence for the price that we have paid but won't be the same opinion if we had paid the full price.

Some things have to be changed to pretend that this is "luxury" residence.
The finishes in the studio are of poor quality, the breakfast is basic.

The staff is very helpful. The SPA is amazing like the New York Palace that is connected to the residence.
We have dinner once in the New York Café inside the Palace and it was just perfect !

I would like to thank all the staff at Boscolo Residence for making our 3 day stay in Budapest so memorable -- the beautiful blonde receptionist (forgot her name!) and Attila were both so cordial and professional -- we'll definitely come back for another visit!!!

We stayed in the Boscolo Luxury Residence for a short weekend trip to discover Budapest.
Yulia was our receptionist and she was extremely helpful, very pleasant and accommodating. She gave us great advice, and was always available for us. The same goes for the rest of the staff working at the hotel: very professional and pleasant!

Our "grand suite" room was great, very modern, plenty of room: kitchen, living room, two bathrooms, large bedroom, free WIFI, two TVs. Very clean, warm, nice books / magazines to look through. Kitchen was equipped with all kinds of utensils. The shower had no doors so was slightly wet in the room after taking a long shower, but there were always plenty of clean towels. Oh, and the shower gels smell *really* nice - a little plus!!

The breakfast was a bit disappointing, we were expecting more warm things like eggs and bacon. But there was plenty to keep us going. The reception area is very nice to relax in.

We went to the spa and really enjoyed it - it is very nicely done up, very clean, relaxing, the Turkish bath / Hammam was great, the relaxation room is a pleasant touch (try the "love tea" which we really enjoyed, fruity and perfect after a seance in the sauna). To get to the spa you walk through the sister hotel which is absolutely stunning.

The New York Salon (part of the sister hotel) is well worth a visit, it is very grand and definitely merits its name of "the most beautiful cafe in the world".

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would have loved to stay longer!

We stayed here for one night, after 2 nights at the Boscolo Hotel next door (due to Ryanair's brutal decision to pull out of Budapest. Idiots.). At £40 per night this really is a superb option. After spending £80 per night at the hotel and being amazed by that price, this was even better. We were worried that without breakfast included we'd have to fork out extra but we found a bakery that fed us for less than £5 in total, which has actaully made us question whether we need breakfast at hotels any more! Should we go back to Budapest we'd actually choose this ahead of the hotel as at the price you get more facilities, albeit on a slightly less grand scale. However, that's not to say the apartment was anything but fantastic - a well equipped kitchen, with a spacious lounge, and a modern bathroom and large bedroom.

I gave the hotel 5 stars in my review, and even though we'd stay here next time, I'm giving this 4. That's only because afte we'd been to the baths we asked for new towels for the room as we'd taken the existing ones and they were wet - and the new ones never arrived. It's not the worst thing that's ever happened to a person, but in a 5* hotel I expect a request like this to be carried out, regardless of the price I've paid.
