We stayed in the luxury apartments over the New Year. The Apartments were great, modern with a large bathroom and nice balcony which although too cold to use would have been appreciated in the summer.
My only negative comment in relation to this accommodation is that I did not think the accommodation to be luxurious, although probably now not brand new, the finishes were bad in places and the fittings were modern but not what I would call luxury.
The Kitchen was great for us who just wanted a slice of toast in the morning but there was no tea or coffee in the room to make your own drinks. I do, however, accept that drinks could be made in the hotel foyer on the ground floor. Not ideal if you are having a lazy morning with breakfast in bed! I would expect at the very least to have tea and coffee. If you had wanted a completely self catering experience in Budapest (which in my view would be a shame as there are some fabulous restaurants!) the kitchen was probably not sufficient, very basic!
The living and bedroom were modern and very light due to the floor to ceiling glass windows, although don't worry for those that require a dark room (like me) to get to sleep on a night there were black out curtains. A great nights sleep in very comfortable beds. One added bonus was the large wardrobes. Another plus for me was that the hairdryer was not fitted and could be plugged in and used wherever you wished.
The bathroom would have been my idea of luxury had the finishes been great. The bath was a real blessing after a freezing cold day sightseeing!
Although this review sounds negative in places I do not mean it to be, this place is really really good with some nice touches. I say all of the above as I was a little disappointed in what was a fantastic apartment due to the use of the word luxury. Many will probably disagree with me as we all envisage different things when we see the word luxury. Go with a view of modern rather than luxury and I believe you will not be disappointed.
I believe all the luxury is waiting for you in the New York Cafe! Now that was a WOW!
