Prater Residence
Ranked #124 of 666 Specialty Lodging in Budapest
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We stayed in this residence for 2 nights in a "luxury 2 bedroom" apartment and really loved it. The place is modern, spacious, we were happily surprised to fin that there are two bathrooms. We stayed in January and the place was very well heated and quiet. The reception staff is great and always available, there's a security guard all night. It is very easy to get all your groceries from the shopping center that is 2 minutes away. The subway station is very close too. The only thing we noticed was that the cleaning was not perfect ( floors were a little dusty and dishes were not washed well)....also, the mattresses are a little hard even for someone who has back issues and who likes hard mattresses like me ...... Anything you would need from a kitchen is there, same for the bathroom (hair dryer etc.....), there's even a washing machine in the bathroom. We would recommend this place for its location, value and overall quality.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard (it may be more quiet than the street side, especially in the su...

The place is pretty new, the price is fair and the location is good, however if you're traveling to Budapest during the summer, think twice before staying in Prater Residence as the apartments are neither equipped with air-conditioning nor ventilator. During my stay the temperature was around 35°C and it was unbearable to stay in the apartment during day hours and it was really hard to fall asleep in this heat with not even a ventilator....

We booked the Prater for 3 nights while waiting to move to our longer term rental. Prater is very convenient, clean and well-equipped, if a bit spare. The kitchen had the all the appliances, but bare minimum in terms of supplies. It was obvious it was not equipped for true self-catering. The king-size bed was, in fact, two twins pushed together and the bed linens a bit on the scratchy side. The living room was spacious and well-furnished. All in all, it is a good value for a short stay but not a true 5-star.

We booked a room here based on other TA reviews, but didn't find everything as satisfactory. The apartment was advertised with king sized beds on both Expedia and their website, but these were in fact two small single beds pushed together, barely making a queen sized bed. The beds were also very hard and uncomfortable. The apartment didn't have air conditioning, which even at the end of summer meant having the windows open constantly, as the apartment was hot all night. With the continuous road noise throughout the night, this made sleeping difficult. Even when we closed the windows of our fifth floor apartment, we could still hear the traffic. One other thing to bear in mind is that outside of reception hours, the front desk is manned by a security guard who neither speaks English nor has any manners.
Our room was already showing signs of wear and tear even though it opened earlier this year.
The hot water in the bath never got hot, so we often just showered.
This being said, the free garage and wifi were a bonus, although the wifi was intermittently unavailable. The location is good, with the Corvin centre next door, there is a supermarket on the lower floor. The metro stop is also close by.

I often stay in apartments when travelling, Práter Residence was one of my best choices. :) The staff was very friendly and helpful, the apartments were brand new, clean, comfortable. The shopping mall is just 1 minute and the old town is about 15 minutes.For this price it was a real burgain!
