Unique experience
Reviewed 3 days ago

I had the opportunity to stay at New York Residence for around 30 days, when arrived in Budapest. The amenities and staff were excellent during my transition period. With incredible support and attention, I was able to navigate through the city and feel at home when getting back to that wonderful building. Their SPA area is great and relaxing after a hard working day is priceless. Being in the same building as the New York Cafe is a must. Delicious food and environment for a couple of glasses of wine listening to a very good quality musicians performance is definitely such a unique experience. My great colleague Eric Montagnon took some time to share his nice history and passion to Budapest. Really appreciated and recommend this place, with no remarks.

Good value modern apartments
Reviewed 5 days ago

Very modern apartment. Ideal for our purposes. Very helpful reception staff with taxis,queries etc. Only downside is a faint smell in the bathroom that never went away. Located a little further from centre but walkable for most. A few good restuarants around and handy LIDL store adjacent. Good value for money.

Very good and very nearly excellent

We arrived at the New York Residence and were met by a very charming chap on the front desk. After checking in we found our room. Despite its loveliness it was too close to the only lift (elevator) and main stairs so we asked to be moved. Room 482 was much nicer, away from the lift/stairs but did only have a view of the internal quadrangle. To be honest, Budapest has so much going for it, we weren’t going to spend hours gazing out our window!

The suite came with a full kitchen in the living room, that had a sofa and armchair as well as a good size dining table. Plus the usual large widescreen TV.

The very large bathroom had a bath with shower, a separate shower cubicle, a large wash basin, a toilet and, if you’re inclined to use it, a bidet. There was also a washing machine.

The king size bed was very comfortable and there was adequate room to store clothes. The room also had its own safe.

The daily housekeeping kept the room looking fresh. They supplied the usual shower gels and shampoo. But I’d suggest if you’re staying for more than a couple of days to pop into Lidl downstairs near the Metro station and stock up on cheap toiletries!

We cooked our own breakfast each day, using Lidl again for all the basics. The kitchen came fully equipped and, when I asked for a missing item, it was supplied immediately.

I’ve read that this is a 5 Star Hotel. It’s not. It’s apartments with hotel amenities. It’s also not 5 Star. I’d suggest 3+ maybe a low 4!

Our only gripes were that there was no control for the A/C in the bedroom so, even on a warm heat, you get a gale blowing right above the bed. The other moan was the slight damage to the dining table and work surfaces. But, I guess if people are cutting bread etc without a cutting board there’s going to be the odd deep scratch here and there!

The fridge comes stacked with the usual minibar goodies. I’d suggest staying clear of them. 5€ for a packet of £1 M&Ms isn’t worth it when 5 minutes away is a very good Lidl.

The final thing I’d say is that below the hotel is a vacant retail until which whilst we were there had building work. Don’t let this put you off. It’s nothing to do with the hotel and doesn’t interfere with your stay. It just looked a bit unsightly. The main entrance to the hotel is away from the building on a fairly quiet side street.

A great sized apartment
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Stayed in the studio apartment which was large and well equipped for the two of us. It is a good location two minutes from the Metro and then two stops from downtown. The transport system is really easy to use, trams and buses stop close by too. The surrounding roads are busy and slightly run down with the ground floor beyond reception being renovated into retail areas. That said the room was sound proofed with effective air conditioning and it didn’t bother us, just a little unsightly. There is an Aldi by the Metro which is so cheap for anything you need in the room. Lots of breakfast items and with the fridge really convenient . They NYR do a breakfast at €15 pp, which was very nice. We used the New York Palace spa a couple of times, it is a mission to find it, but worth the experience. Towels, robes and slippers provided.
All staff we spoke with were pleasant and helpful, and we enjoyed the freedom an apartment gives you after staying in hotels for the previous week. Thoroughly recommend.

Not bad, but nothing special

I spent 3 months living here, and changed 3 rooms. Some of the rooms are terrible, but some others are really nice. I finally was happy with my room - over looking the main road.

Bathrooms and showers are good.

When it comes to service - its either very good, or very poor - depends who is working I guess.

Cleaning is so and so.

Location is perfect.

I would recommend for a short to medium stay, but for a long stay I would rather go for an apartment :)
