“Basic service, great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

Rooms are spacious but finished very basically with cheap IKEA furniture. No cleaning service or air conditioning.

This apartment is Perfect for two couples who are good friends or a small family. Excellent location in a cool neighbourhood.

We arrived at the apartments at 11.30pm, and the booking office was very difficult to find. When we did find the office, it was locked and they did not answer the phones. We ended up going to a neighbouring office and asking them to contact Senator apartments. The man that booked us in was very rude, and did not apologise for leaving the office and panicking us.

The room was nice, but the bed was a sofa bed - which was not stated on the description.

On the plus side, the apartments are very central and next to transport links, shops and local attractions. Another member of staff was more useful, and helped us to book taxis.

Overall, the apartments are OK, but definately not 4 stars. It is OK for the price we paid, but I would not stay there again nor recommend it to my family/friends.

I found this online and tried it out for a night, traveling with children. As you leave the apartment, you are in the very center of Budapest, in walking distance to everything you want to see. You park underground and forget about the car. Everytime we drive through Hungary, we book a room there and know that we don't have to worry. Plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood. Free and fast wi-fi. Easy check-in/out.

This is a very nice hotel and it costs almost nothing. New furniture and big airy apartment. The big shopping street is just across the street and nice bars around the corner. Perfect if you travel with a group of friends.

My family went on a vacation across Europe this month and we chose Senator for Budapest. I don't understand how people have rated this as 4 stars, this is fit for only 2 stars.

The staff is quite OK but the manageress is quite rude and not very forthcoming.

We checked into a 2 bedroom for our party of 5 on arrival night. We had asked for a 3 bedroom but it was not available for the night and had to spend the first night in the 2 bedroom. We were shifted to the 3 bedroom on day 2 as promised.

Let me not comment about the 2 bedroom apartment which was not clean, had broken curtains, non-working AC and an uncomfortable sofa bed.

The 3 bedroom we were shifted to the next day was a bit better. It had 2 AC's (there is a charge of 5Euro per night for using the AC) but neither one was functioning upto the mark. After leaving it on the entire day, the temp could stabilize only at 24deg which was quite high for a comfortable sleep.

The curtains in this room were also dilapidated and the light in one of the bathroom worked on its own whim. The attached terrace (though we had no use of) was dirty and unkempt.

The kitchen was under-furnished, lacking basic stuff like, dish rack, tea kettle, napkins and cleaning. They expect you to arrange your own dish cleaning cloth and scrubs!!! The fridge could not even hold our couple of days breakfast supplies and it had an unusually large freezer which was of no use for the 3 days we stayed there. Though the supply of pots and pans was quite adequate for our needs.

2 of the 3 bedrooms were quite adequate but the 3rd was a tiny room with no cupboards where the bed was squeezed in. Lucky there were only 5 of us, 6 and we would not have fit.

The bathrooms were quite neat and tidy when handed over. However, they forgot to place the towels and it took 2 trips to the reception downstairs (you will not believe it but they do not have a intercom to the reception) to get them to supply the required towels.

The apartment is cleaned only twice in a week and the guests are charged 10euro for additional service. This additional service is just not worth the payment since, it covers only dusting the rooms, changing the towels and emptying the dustbins. No vacuum, no change of sheets and no cleaning the bathrooms. Wow, we did not know this and were duped of the 10euro.

I don't think anyone will be able to find fault with the location and perhaps that is the reason why it attracts the clients it does.

And one more thing a note at checkout prompts you to write a good review in exchange for discounts for your next trip. Maybe that is the reason why they have got some reviews which have rated them favorably!!!

Room Tip: Just forget this place....

I'm just back from a 4-day break in Budapest with friends. These apartments are so central with great facilities. The building itself is not great; it was intended to be a shopping centre but obviously never took off. However, at no point did I feel unsafe (4 girls on the trip). The bar downstairs served fab cocktails! There is a 24-hr shop across the road and a 24-hr supermarket at the corner of the street just a few metres away. The wi-fi in the apartments is poor but if you go to the hub area, it's better. Excellent facilities in the apt and really clean. However, no room service while we were there and there was just one towel for each person.

Cheap, very central, noisy during night, problem with parking, difficult to find, dirty walls and floors, scary towels and pillows. But : very central..., nice reception stuff.

Room Tip: If you are looking for reasonable price, is Ok, but not expect too much.
