Overview

The Review

Set along Budapest’s tree-lined Andrassy Boulevard, the Mamaison Andrassy Budapest is a smart base for exploring the city. Its intimate size and residential location make it feel more like a private home than an international hotel. Plus, the Andrassy has the history and character missing from many of the city’s newer five stars. Built in 1937, the property was renovated in 2007, but it retains the Bauhaus and Art Deco style of its original incarnation.

While you won’t find the latest high-tech accoutrements, you will find personalized service, expansive European-style breakfasts (for an extra fee) and the Baraka gourmet restaurant, where chef Norbert Biro serves an East-meets-West menu with a nod to traditional Hungarian flavors. The restaurant’s lush terrace passes a crucial hotel restaurant test, as well: It’s a favorite with scene-making locals.

The area immediately around the hotel is relatively quiet, since it’s mainly home to embassies and large private homes. It’s a short walk to the city’s museums, like the unique Museum of Terror, which traces the effects of communism and socialism on the city. It’s also close to the Opera House, home of the Hungarian National Ballet, and the historic Szechenyi Thermal Bath & Spa complex. Built in 1881 and expanded a century ago, it’s one of the largest spa complexes in all of Europe and a highlight of any trip to Budapest.

We booked into the Mamaison as part of a flight and hotel package. Looking at the reviews in advance they all seemed very positive and I liked that the hotel was a little outside of the city centre.

The hotel is located to the north of the central tourist area along a wide tree-lined road populated with grand buildings and embassies. Hero’s square is at the far end of the road with the park just beyond it.

We arrived at lunchtime and checked into our second floor deluxe room. Having stayed in a wide range of hotels in different countries I can confirm that these rooms are modern, but pretty basic with cheap fixtures and fittings and a feeling skewed towards budget rather than luxury. The bathroom was the best feature - it looked like new and the shower/bath were great.

The biggest issue we found with the room was the temperature - the thermostat told us that it was 26 degrees in the room, which was uncomfortably hot. We raised this with the front desk upon leaving that evening and were met with possibly the rudest response ever by the blonde lady on the front desk. Her suggestion that ‘it’s cold outside so we keep the heating on in all rooms’ and ‘if you’re hot just open the balcony door’ wasn’t really helpful. Surely in a modern hotel the occupant should be able to decide whether their room is a normal temperature rather than boiling hot? We indeed did have to keep the balcony door open all day and night to make it bearable which wasn’t ideal from a noise or security point of view. We heard others complaining about the room heat at breakfast as well so I presume all rooms were the same.

When checking out we raised this again with the same blonde lady on the reception. Her response was possibly even ruder, dismissing that the room was too hot and avoiding any kind of an apology. Quite astounding.

Overall, In hindsight we felt the location of the hotel was a bit too far out of town (25 min walk) and given the hotels interior and rudeness of some staff i wouldn’t recommend this hotel to others which is a shame as the rest of our trip to Budapest was outstanding.

Quiet neighborhood two metro stops from Opera

Modern boutique hotel outside but close to downtown. Large modern rooms with fast internet. Tub shower in bath. Beds are OK but not great. Very clean. Friendly front desk staff. Clean. Restaurant has nice lunch options, but slightly pricey. Stayed here as a package tour so can not comment on value. Seems like a good option except for marginal bed quality. Close to metro yellow line.
